Pentax Q7 Sample Photos [18]

Here are a few sample photos I snapped today with the Q7 and 02 lens. All were shot in raw and converted in photoshop. Enjoy!

The WB seems off on the first set.
Also, some look over sharpened?

Thanks for posting, but so far I see no improvement over the results I get from the original Q.
Looking at your high ISO shots in the other thread leaves me with the same feeling, the current Q does not do as bad as some have said, well - at least mine doesn't.

The illusion of overshaprening may be due to the fact that I use bilinear resampling by default rather than bicubic. I'm going to redo the jpegs.

As for the image quality, it's noticeably better, but even in web sized images you can see that they came from a point and shoot.

Maybe the D-Range setting is also switched on or set to auto. Never used it myself, but there's not much contrast in the pics and very little shadow. Some harsh light you're working with there in some of the photos too.
The lens seems to manage OK with the larger sensor, corner to corner.

That's about all we can tell from these snapshots. If the DNGs were posted, we might be able to actually see what the colors and resolution are like beyond the poorly calibrated processing.

Very impressed by the edge performance of the 02 on the bigger sensor.
The dynamic range looks pretty good too.

Is this barrel distortion due to the larger sensor or is it the same with the previous Q/10? This is similar to RX100 raw files at the wide end so I assume there is some similar in-camera correction if you shoot jpg.

Yup. I tried correcting it and the correction amount was pretty big, but I decided to leave it alone as the original looked better.

While I certainly appreciate your showing us some sample images Adam, I kind of agree with Panoguy here. We all have our own recipe and likes for tuning our raw images, and I would really like to try my own processing on some of the raws.

I must admit that my first reaction was "what happened to the great Pentax colors?". I guess it could be the 02 lens since I only have the 01 native lens.

Edit to add - just realized that the 02 lens in the kit probably has no hood - that may make the difference in what I am used to seeing......

Thanks for the samples. I'm kind of confused. Since it has electronic leveler shouldn't it be able to tell the orientation of the camera and tag it so? I wonder why it's omitted. It's easily corrected in post but I'd prefer to have that done for me...

Thanks for these first impressions.

When shooting highlights like burning candles or sunsets the Q/Q10 suffered from strong flare (see Pentax-01 Standard Prime 8.5mm f/1.9 (Pentax Q) - Review / Lens Test - Sample Images & Verdict). It was stated by Pentax that this flare is sensor based. Can you say if the Q7 is better in this respect?

That was my first thought (It's an area where I do see that my girlfriend's MX-1 beats my Q10).

What makes you say that? I reshot a woodland photo from a 3.2 megapixel 1/2.5" zoom camera (Konica Minolta Z10) on an 8 megapixel APS-C Canon with a 28mm/2.8, and I don't think I could see the quality difference between old and new in web-sized images.
