Newbie to Pentax:) Hello everyone

Hi guys, I'm Paul from the Philippines and I'm basically a newbie into the Pentax world. I recently bought a Pentax Q and I have a few questions and I hope I get to know more about the camera from you guys.

1. Just want to ask is it normal on the battery charger from the Pentax Q that it lights up green right away?
2. How many clicks does a one full charge make?
3. What lens and flash should I get as an additional to it?
4. Does my nissin flash work with it? (I use it for my Canon 550d)

Thank you so much guys in advance Hoping to have an awesome and wonderful time here in the forum

Welcome abroad! I can't help you since I am not a Q owner, but if you want advices about the lenses and flash you should post which kind of pictures you prefer to shot and the budget.

1: Yes. The light is on during charging and goes out when the battery is fully charged
2: About 250
3: For lenses check our database with user reviews: Q lenses . The 01 and 02 lenses would be my first choice but it depends on what you will shooting the most (landscape, streetscapes, indoor, etc.). The AF200FG flash is relatively compact and might be a good companion.
4: Probably, but only in manual exposure mode.

1. Wow alright that gave me a piece of mind
2. Has anyone tried the 08 lens, saw it on youtube and it did a hefty good job for a wide angle shot. What other lenses can you suggest for taking wide angle shots?
3. Tried the flash and it only worked on M mode.
4. How do you do a timelapse video with the Q? Saw it somewhere that it has a built in timelapse mode.. where and how do you shoot it? Or do you edit it outside? Thank you so much OLE!!

Welcome, I'll let the Q guys here on the forum answer your questions, as I will openly admit I know nothing about them at all.

Welcome to PF. The Q is a fun camera. I regret selling mine.
