Q10 New User....


I just purchased the Q10 Evangeline with the standard lens configuration and I am very excited about using it!!! This is my first venture into the "new" digital world as I have been using medium format film cameras for well over 40 years and I needed something to shoot with when I am just wandering around and don't feel like packing all of my usual gear. I am impressed, thus far, with the ergonomic design of the Q10; while it is a very small camera, it feels extremely comfortable and definitely has some substance to it. I am looking forward to using the various filters and seeing what I can come up with when I take the images into Photoshop.

Nothing much more to add at this time--I'l post some images once I start noodling around with the camera.

I've seen those colorful Evangeline Q10s on eBay and I think they look really cool despite not having a clue about what Evangeline means. It's a Japanese movie, right?

Welcome to the forum!!

Yes, the color scheme is based on the Japanese Evangeline series from the mid-1990's ---at least that's what I've read. It's a beautiful little camera and I am looking forward to working with it. Unfortunately, the weather in Minnesota is not favorable toward outdoor photography (January.....-10/F) and, as I understand it, the Q is operational above 32 degrees. So, most of the images you will be seeing from me will be taken of one of my three cats in & around my house. Does anyone have any experiences shooting with the Q at extremely cold temperatures????

Thanks Much!!!!!
