lid for sd slot seems fine, actually everything is tight and in good shape on the camera, externally , as far as i can tell ; charged and tried the new battery, did not bring the Q back to life.

Image ratios and cropping

i kind of am of the opinion , being able to crop to whatever size one wants, for the web anyway ; guess to a standard frame size if not looking to have to custom frame something in the real world... oh, and 1:1 usually looks better to me if the 1:1 is cropped a little larger or smaller in one dimension. ( ......but what was that you said about opinions , pacerr ? )

pretty sure it's not anything to do with moisture , here; the internal battery not working is an interesting idea, that may have something to do with it , but how does one replace that ? i've cleaned all the terminals, with a pencil eraser, taken the lens off and put back on , changed sd cards, can't think of anything else to do. awaiting new battery now......

don't they put a little re-set button on cameras that one can push a little paperclip into to restart ? or could one put a penny across the battery compartment terminals ?

Q stopped turning on. just all of a sudden, camera always handled in a careful way ; two batteries both charged to 4.13, 4.10 volts, respectively, but nothing, waited overnight without battery in camera, but this morning, still nothing;
ordered a replacement battery as the easiest first step. that is on it's way.
expect maybe digital cameras may not last a decade, but only a couple/few years ? will see if the new battery does it.

GR - can i reverse functions of the front and rear dials ?

seems to me that if the adjust dial on the back was reversed to the front it would make more sense, in light of all the pentax cameras, i have which use the rear dial , so far the only thing that i find not great is that adjust dial, seems a waste to me, and too finicky to use anyway. so, can i reverse the functions of those two dials ? actually the rear one isn't really a dial at all is it .

i think my nose naturally hits the ' ND off ' pacerr, do you leave that screen up as a nose target ? i probably should be aiming more towards that ' custom image ' target if i used this new type finder ?

you've inspired me to at least try making one of these, pacerr, found this little square thing among my 'stuff ' don't have a clue what it was from.
attached with super glue to a spring-clamp paper clip, with one 'handle' removed, slips right into the hotshoe.
if i set the Q on 1:1, and just barely touch my nose to the lcd, voila - works great with the 01 lens - at least on the few shots i've tried so far.

i never did buy a viewfinder for the Q, and have been using the Q for a few years now, ( it's not an electronic viewfinder in any case ) if you do try one, let me know how you like it. actually the lcd screen works well for me, even in fairly bright light, at least have not had an issue with it after all this time.

looking again at the images above of your camera and ingenious spam-can adaptation...... why do you have an ND4 filter on there ? weren't you paying attention when bcb and i were trying to figure out that in-camera nd filter setting ( which i don't know if i have ever truly figured out yet anyway ) on the Q ?

k5IIs is the way to go, no doubt about it. why not get the best lenses while they still are out there , and get the full frame ones.
