My pimped out Q includes
1. 2.8x LCD-V5 LCD eye piece tripod hole modified to center to the Q screen
2. Tripod mount ring D (UTR3) E BAY altered to close tight on the adapter thanks to Scott (snostorm)
3. Pentax K to Q adapter
4. Finger loop, doubles as a slip ring for single lug camera strap, altered small dog collar from Petco
5. Over the shoulder Camera strap, dog leash from Petco
6. Manfrotto compact tripod MKC3-H01
7. Lens DAL 55-300 or lens as required

How did you modify the dog leash to act as a camera strap?

Love the idea of a dog collar as a wrist strap/slip ring for shoulder strap.

I just used the material part of the collar and old camera straps connectors to make a loop large enough for my finger. The over the shoulder strap was the leach with quick connector to attach to the finger loop.

Ok, let's see - Q + Pentax Q-K Adapter + DFA 100 + foot + light. What light is that and what arm is it mounted to via the hot shoe?

It's a Fotodiox 120A mini LED light, on a Fotodiox adjustable arm. I prefer continuous light sources to flash, and I got both of these components free with a couple of larger LED lights I bought from Fotodiox. Go figure, I rarely use the larger lights...

Thanks for the details and links. You must have put in a heck of an order to get $70 worth of freebees thrown in

Not really - it was this kit when it was first introduced... at less than half that retail price! Those mini-lights and static arms can be found on eBay for much less...
