Pentax Q = Perferct divers camera ?
The way I see it, A Pentax Q with a good quality housing for underwater use (down to 40 meters) wound offer:
Image Quality equal or better to that of an LX3
The choice of lenses that are small and compact
A full gear, camera + lens + housing that is small and lightweight
Now, I would like the Q lens lineup to also include a small-sized macro, but for me, if an underwater housing ever got made, the Q could be the perfect underwater camera for my diving needs!
Edit: I just noticed they will be offering a $129 Fisheye.
Quite possibly so.
I would figure a super wide angle lens would be needed for this application as well. But I'm not sure how that would pan out on such a small sensor.
BTW, I have absolutely no knowledge of underwater photography so grain of salt here.
is it possible to use an external flash with the q?
