Small camera goes to a small place

I did not want to encumber myself too much and wanted something more fresh than just that shallow DOF look on FF with fast lenses, so the Q7+08 lens was the perfect combi for this short trip to Legoland.

I wondered for a moment whether we were going to get some shots through a Pentax endoscope, but this is much nicer and certainly less visceral to look at!

Interesting shots. It's amazing what gets done with Lego. My grandson always gets disheartened when he sees constructions like this (and he has a mountain of Lego!)

As a Biomedical Equipment Technician, I was thinking the same thing...But I am used to dealing with Olympus Endoscopes.

Looking at the constructions, I got thinking "maybe I can do it".... then reality sinks...

I am quite surprised by the versatility of the 08 zoom.
But on closer look at its equivalent FL, maybe its not that big a surprise.
17.5mm to 27mm (like a 17-28mm lens), ultra wide to get the whole scene or to exaggerate the perspective and wide for a reportage type of coverage (useful with family and kids)

The thing about the Q/Q7 is that whenever I use it, there is that initial lack of confidence that the IQ will be ok.
You know... that feeling that we need ISO 128,000 to make night into day, the pixel peeing resolution to read off someone's credit card numbers from a 100% cropped shot, etc.

But once I start to use a Q7, and get the picts out, I know that its certainly good enough for the usual viewing mediums we use nowadays (usually the phone, tablet, or a laptop).
Its also more than enough to make 5R prints, in which back in the day, 3R, 4R was what most of us did at the most with our film shots as well.

5"x7"
I got quite a bit of these in photo inkjet paper.

Not so common a size though.
