Welcome to the forum, well at least while your getting to grips with the Q, the battery use will be higher, but it will settle down a bit when your not pressing all the buttons at once.

Welcome! Very colorful shots. I like reading in their introductions how excited people are to have a new camera. I was just there a few weeks ago with the k30.
