Just to make BigMackCam happy...

There's probably a new Q-T3.14 camera coming down the line that improves on the low-light capability and focusing of the Q-S1 and goes back to the Q7 form factor. Also will be coming in a whopping 53271 different color combinations with 3 brand new lens options...

Well, not really surprised. Guess that means whatever inventory on hand has been sold.

Unless there's something I'm missing, hasn't this been the case for 4 odd years?

They haven't issued a new one for quite some time, but in the past when you have asked them about it they have said that they were still supporting the line - I guess that answer has stopped being true.

Indeed, earlier in the year the q-s1 was not shown as discountinued (the link is to the web archive snapshot from April 12)... but it wasn't on sale either. Maybe they just got to updating their website.

I have not been following the model, but that has been my understanding as well. If there is any NOS in hiding, it is doing an excellent job of staying hidden.

Good news for Q-S1 owners looking to sell. Your camera just got “vintage” and “rarer.” Time to jack up your price 😂

We all were feeling it for years even if not officialy retired... Let's hope 645 line will not experience the same fate
