Attached is my best one among many shots during total eclipse.
ISO 1600, shutter speed dropped to 1/5, and still got under-exposed by 2 stops if I remember it correctly. I was not able to get shut speed even close to 1/50. (ISO would be too high then, and the shot was not usable at all...)
btw, I use q7+400mm f5.6, spot metering on the brightest spot of course.

Nice shot!
Could you share your settings?
I found myself struggling with the dilemma between high ISO and low shutter speed during the total eclipse period.

Focal length should be 400mm (manually set the wrong value I guess. Sorry!)
Aperture f8, jpg unsharpened.

I know this may sound insane. But yeah, I did it.
Have heavily invested in Canon gears already, but after found the reachability of Q7 and full-frame lens combo, I was sold.

After reading some related threads in this forum and learnt a lot, I think it is my turn to share my finding and hopefully it will benefit some other members if there is any in the same boat :)

Both shots were taken with Q7+Canon EF 70-200 f2.8 II lens at 200 mm, from about 10 feet away (maybe more than that). Used a tripod and a remote trigger. I think I might have stopped down to F4 in one of the shot, but I might be wrong.

Adapter: Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter, Canon EOS Lens to Pentax Q-Series Camera, fits Pentax Q Mirrorless Cameras, bought from amazon.

Modification: At first, I painted the interior of the adapter with Rust-Oleum American Accents Ultra Cover 2x, Flat Black, bought from walmart. But it seems the result was not as good as I expected, and some light reflection was still there. So I tried a second method mentioned by a member (sorry, I don't remember his/her name), which is using felt tape. I didn't get the felt tape, but got some friction tape instead, from walmart. and the result turns out to be very good, at least to me, I'm fully satisfied.

Aperture control: bought a Canon EOS 2000D from ebay for $17 with batteries (man, the camera body is cheap, but the batteries are expensive!) Not very convenient though, I can still leave with it.

Shooting experience: had been shooting in the sun for about 30 mins, then the camera was overheated and simply started showing the thermometer symbol only... My wife was joking that I should have brought an umbrella with me... Focusing on the tiny LCD screen was tough. The magnified manual focus feature helps a lot!

That's pretty much it. Thanks for looking!

For Sale - Sold: DA 21+K-01 combo

Here is my last piece of pentax gear up for sale. This package includes almost everything you need as a compact system, based on K-01, for casual shooting, or even serious work. I've given my thought when I constructed this compact system. Trust me, you will have a lot of fun with it.

Reason for selling: my son is getting older and more active now, I have to use DSLR for most of the time in order to capture the moment, although it is bulky and heavy...
Please don't get me wrong. The K-01+21 combo is great, but I just don't have time to use it. It has been sitting in my storage bag for half a year now, time to let it go.

Sales include the following items:
  1. K-01 body (white): mint, bought new from amazon in last summer, lcd protector installed from day one, shutter count less than 980, charger and strap have not been used (still in original packaging). Comes with TWO D-Li 90 batteries, cables, box.

  2. DA 21: used, but in excellent condition. Glass is perfect. Body may shows some minor paint loss under close inspection, also there are some minor scratches on front lens cap, which can be seen from certain angle. This lens is my favorite, that's why I decided to keep it when I sold off my entire pentax collection. It is a good performer, very very sharp. It is a pleasure to shoot with, I used to carry it everyday. Comes with box, pouch, extra rear lens cap.

  3. Third-party remote control

  4. On board flash diffusers: three colors are available: wihte, yellow and blue

  5. One Kodak 4gb SD card


Price for the whole package is $700, buyer pays shipping and paypal fee.
I'd like to sell everything as a package (at least for the time being).

All sales are final. Please check my feedback and be confident :)

Thanks for looking!

IQ from this combo is great. AF speed is very fast.
My only nitpicking is the weight balance. The 8-16 is a pretty big lens.
