Re: Pentax Q video is here :)

Yes, balance is tilted to the drums, which I wanted in order to test how the microphone handles bass frequencies from the bass drum and tom-toms.  I'm pleasantly surprised that it handled those just fine, and that the mic didn't self-attenuate on the attack of the notes.  This was important to me because there is no way to set microphone sensitivity level as there is on the K-01.  Tonal accuracy is also good if one listens on headphones or good speakers.  Searching "Pentax Q Video" on google got me only reviews of the camera or some short tests with talking or traffic noises, no music to give an idea of mic performance, so I thought I would make one.  I bought the Q as a compact video tool for music and it's going to be fine for that.
