  • AND... with the MX-1, you need to have room in your jacket pocket for about $500 of money you wouldn't have anymore with the RX100....
  • Huh.. Gotta say the videos from the MX-1 in Blunty's clip look great.  At least compared to my Q7 videos.  I had assumed the two cameras shared a lot (sensor size, control menus, and therefore ...
  • If you plan on using video, the Sony would be the way to go.  I've got the Q7, and love it - great photo quality, and same sensor as the MX-1.  But video is simply awful.  I find myself pulling ...
  • I had the original Q, which I loved as a physical object.  The Q7 is head and shoulders better than the Q as far as image quality goes, and has more in camera control as well. But movie mode.. ugh. ...
  • Q7/08 lens combo is supported by PT lens now (your welcome... I submitted the calibrating images..  woohoo).  Not sure it PT lens plug in exists for lightroom.
  • Anybody?  Just asking again.  Loving my Q7 and 08 wide angle, but took some video tests, and really surprised how poor the video was.  Anyone have better experience?
  • I have a Pentax DS (old!) and often use with a sigma 10-20mm zoom, which is pretty close in range to the Q8 lens.  I haven't really compared them, but I can tell from pixel peeping that a good ...
  • Created discussions Q7/08 interiors
    Yeah!  This is what this lens is fantastic for. A couple interior scouting shots, and a fun street shot.  I have to say I am totally pleased with the Q7's exposure choices (mine too...) and the 08 ...
  • out of camera JPEG.  I think I had the auto highlight correct set to on.  And not sure which filter was being applied to the BW conversion, probably orange.
  • Hi Xlotus - I paid <$300us for the Q7 body, but it was one of those 'brand new open box lens kit without the lens' deals on Ebay. Brand new, and warranted however. The 08 lens I couldn't get for ...
  • So I received my Q7 and a new 08 lens today.  Whoa! I had prior been in the 'love the object and build of the original Q, and can therefore put up with some image compromises'.  NO MORE!!  This ...
  • Created discussions Pentax q7 price dropping
    Finally pulled the trigger on a q7 body.  Priced on ebay dropped about $200 in the last couple of weeks.  Kits with lens dropped similarly.  Of course.. now I'm obviously going to need the 08 wide ...
  • Created discussions Q7 video question
    Hi all - I've had my Q for a long while now.  Am tempted to upgrade to Q7 for IQ.  I'm also curious about video quality.  The Q video with stabilization on is very oddly jumpy, as if the ...
  • I went with the Lowepro Dash 20.  Just big enough for the Q+02, and some batteries and a CP filter.  Can go on belt or on strap of back pack.  With the lens, the camera really is only jacket ...
  • Created discussions 02 lens in black
    I am finally ready to get the 02 lens, and noticed the black version of this lens on the Q7 kit.  It looks great.  Does anyone know if just the black lens is available currently?
