Electric Guitars @ Hard Rock Cafe, Changi Airport, Singapore (RETRO FILTER)


Karate Kids on Red Kimonos Jogging @ Monas, Jakarta, Indonesia (TOY CAMERA AND COLOR REPLACEMENT FILTER)


Pentax lens cover MACRO SHOT!!! (MACRO LENS - Sanyo Xacti Macro Lens works with Pentax Q Standard Zoom 02)


Another shot of Monas @ Jakarta, Indonesia (VIBRANT COLOR SETTING)

That retro filter is pretty nice.

Looks like the Q is pretty perfect for street photography.

It is imo only with the 01 prime and the OVF, i say that because with that setup you're probably inconspicous but the moment you do the "zombie" position, they see you a mile away

Pffft OVF... memorize the framing your lens gives you, put the hotshoe right under your eye, and click !

I walk around with my k-x and 10-20 and just keep it at my waist shooting. No one suspects a thing.....

Those retro guitars look sweet! I also think that the B&W filter is a very cool option. At least it gives you an insta preview of how the scene will look in B&W.

I am shooting with the Q and No. 2 lens in the Single challenge this month - here are a few shots.

HDR...



HDR...



Panorama with Microsoft ICE



The moon with the 60-250



Nighttime shot



I find the Q very easy to handhold for long shutter speeds, more so than my K5.

Wide angle fun. The viewing angle is quite nice on the screen.

Wow, there's nothing "toyish" about those images...from the "toy" lenses. Thanks, that's the push i needed to get those lenses.

Yeah the "toy" tele is actually a good lens, strangely enough, after Pentax hyping the (alleged) uncorrected aberrations, etc., in the toy line of Q lenses. But its sibling, the wide-angle toy lens, is indeed poor judging from all the samples I have seen online, so I would stay away from that one.
