Fellow Q cultists, I've just ordered an 06 from Adorama, where they are back in stock again. Looking forward to giving it a spin.

Been shooting for almost 40 years. Never enjoyed it as much as I do now with the Q. I think I am Qrazy.

You've been infected. Drink lots of fluids and get plenty of rest - and shoot with the Q

I'm enjoying it much more now with the 01 prime. I'm looking forward to actually getting out there with some adapted lenses though. I want to try street supertelephoto.

Hi,

I thought it'd be better to just ask this here, rather than start a new thread. How do the Q and other new "mirror-less" cameras handle shutter lag?

One of the reasons I switched from P&S to DSLR years ago, was that the shutterlag of P&S cameras was unbearable to me. Press the shutter, then wait, sometimes wait some-more, then finally a confirmation tone. Usually the subjects had moved almost completely out the frame by the time the picture was actually recorded.

Are these new mirror-less cameras more SLR like as far as the shutter release?

TiA,

Joe

Speaking for the Q there is a small bit of lag. It is manageable once you get accustomed to it.

I don't have experience with other mirrorless.

I'll also add that in my experience, the Q's lag is MUCH better than on the point & shoots I've used. The Q's electronic shutter is a fraction of a second vs. a second or more on the point & shoots. I also haven't noticed much or any shutter lag when using a lens with a leaf shutter. Maybe there is, but I haven't noticed it.

Thanks for the responses.

I'd presumed that maybe the operation of the latest mirror-less cameras was like a DSLR, just without an optical VF. I guess they're not.

So, would the lag on the Q, or the K-01 be similar to say, the lag when taking a shot from live-view with my Kx?

No the mirrorless are much faster. The kx drops the mirror then raises it again before shooting, which adds a lot of time.

Ah, OK thanks.

Well, with the Kx in LV, I think it takes a picture more quickly than most P&S's I've used. So if the new mirror-less jammies are as quick or quicker than that, then maybe I may need to look into them a bit more
