Great shots, I like the compositions. I have yet to get a good shot of eagles with my Q, I did get a few with the Kr

Timithybobw, I use the Q noise reduction on low to make sure the camera doesn't pick high. Who knows, on auto it may be able to turn noise reduction totally off and perform better- doubt it. Sorry it took a while to answer. Hope you are enjoying the Q.

Crewl1, your Cormorant video is great. Captures these wonderful birds perfectly. Your results keep reminding me to try video. Will give it a go this season.

VisualDarkness, that is a super moon shot. Like the enhanced color. Clouds don't seem to have bothered the results any. I have that teleconverter. Haven't used it much with the DA*300 and the Q. That will be rectified now that the eagles are back.

This moonshot pales in comparison to some already posted, but it was my first attempt with the Q on a Rikenon 300mm f/4.5. Had to convert to BW to eliminate some serious purple fringing. Hazy night, with a strong nimbus around the moon.

Nice shots! The contrast and detail are excellent, I hope to be able to match that.

Here's another moonshot, this time with a Tokina 500mm f/8 mirror lens. I couldn't get the whole moon in the frame. I was too close... to the moon. :-) (Also, f/8 didn't give me enough DOF to get the whole thing in focus. I never would have guessed!)

Really impressive for a lens of that price and not to mention right into diffraction zone. I'm looking forward to more shots with it!

These were shot with the DA*300

Bluebird female at nest cavity


This sequence I found amusing.
At first I thought the pair were feeding chicks since they kept coming back with grubs and worms, but in this sequence you will notice the female actually takes food out of the nest.
Then the male shows up next and it seems he is thinking "WTH, wheres my food?"

Sharp shinned hawk


There was a parking lot of cars between me and the bird, and if you view it large in HD you can see the heat waves messing with the image in the video.
This is a very common problem, sometimes I think I got a great shot only to review and see it is all blurred by the atmosphere due to the distance.

Pentax-Q Tamron 60B 300mm F/2.8 @F/5.6

The still shot was handheld (ROFL) about 10ft away, facing in the sun on a windy day with the 300mm.

I admire you folks who can shoot 1650mm hand held.
I like the activity from the woodpecker. I think the Q+long lens combo is great for capturing behavior on video that would not happen if a human was too close.

I can agree with that. The best feature for me so far is the compression, being able to isolate objects is a big plus.

Handheld hummer shot.
Fotodiox adapter, Pentax M 135/3.5 @ f5.6, 800 ISO.
jepeg from camera, a little contrast adjustment only with Picasa.
Lately I've been bumping up the ISO for handhelds.

Nice shot! I have the same 135 & same adapter. That little 135 is a tiny tele-monster on the Q. :-)

Thanks!

Shutter speed was 1/500 so I was surprised at the stop action.
I've shot 'em faster, and had more blur.
