Congrats, have fun with it, You night consider altering your lens hood as that one will cause dark corners on your 02 when shooting wide images. I took a dremmel tool to mine opening up the corners

I'm surprised every time I take out my Q7, I get some really nice pictures from it, always one or two that totally exceed my expectations. Enjoy a great little camera!

The image quality is good enough for general usage, especially with 01 prime lens

Hi, any photos after this modification? I used the " lens correction " function in the camera, the dark corner just omitted

You need to be careful with any flash old enough to be described as "vintage".
Some of the old ones put the full flash trigger voltage through the hot-shoe, and the result is cooked camera.
