Pentax Q street shots - post them here.

Zorglub's post made me think. The Q is a wonderful street shooter. We should have a place to post street shots all together. Kind of like the lens clubs. Lets keep this going as a project of sorts.

thanks

Good idea, I love seeing your stuff. I can't believe how incognito the Q is on the street.







EXIF for the one below is
Exposure 0.001 sec (1/1000)
Aperture f/1.9
Focal Length 8.5 mm
ISO Speed 125

Try and nail that one with a DSLR ;-)

That last one is Phenomenal!!!!! How did you have the presence of mind to setup the shutter like that to cover the guys shooting themselves??? Is it a regular occurrence? Were you blurring the crowds anyway then you saw them?

BTW I checked out your flicker account and your talent eeks out every last drop of quality of the Q, in fact some of the softness / lack of DOF really lends its self to street

Thanks Tonto! Got lucky with the people standing still enough to not be blurred. I love the built in neutral density filter in the Q.

Thats a great point re: ND filter, another weight to the scales of my CBA!!! (an ND filter is on my wishlist at the moment for my DSLRs)

I was just about to post a question regarding the Q being used as a street photography camera. Glad I did a search first!

I tried my Q for some street this weekend and when I first got it.
I used the 01 prime but I typically use something wider and had to adjust my working distance a bit.
Some are cross posts from other threads in the forum.

These make me think the Q was not such bad idea after all!
