Can't wait to shoot...

Well, well, well. Look what showed up in the mail today!

First impressions: Awesome piece of equipment. Feels very solid.

The battery is charging...I hope to have time to take it out and shoot some photos later.

Cool. Enjoy shooting. We did mention that you would have fun with the Q! You are addicted now. Don't forget to do the firmware updates on body and lens.
thanks

Remember to purchase spare batteries, even 3rd party ones are fine too.

I just ordered 5 batteries and 2 chargers on ebay for a total of $20.55 - which also included free shipping.

Love that lawn Q! I went through two batteries in a day of shooting with the family at the county fair. Didn't think I would need the third, but from now on all three go with me.

I tried the interval shooting earlier today. I set the number of shots to 5 and interval to 1sec. I started the process. It took 3 pics. then I tried for 10 shots...it took 7...

Third time I put 2 secs interval and 5 shots: It took 5 pics, same 2 secs interval with 10 shots resulted in 10 pics.

I am thinking that my SD card might not be fast enough...What do you think?
