From a design perspective, the look and feel of connect.dpreview is what this site should have grown into.

Color scheme is so difficult on the eyes. No self respecting web designer would choose white text on black. If a dark layout is desired, the best result is usually a background that isn’t pure black and text that isn’t pure white. Would also help to increase the leading, or in web terms - line height.

(unknown member): The same hard to read black background I see.

I missed the "Different skins" link, but i sure hope it gives me the option to change color scheme. I love this site, but the white on black is possibly the worst color scheme for a text heavy site.

Personally i think the font size is just right. All it needs is a little more line-height and as mentioned a better complimentary background color.

Sometimes i miss the m43 gear i had, but then i see the prices of quality m43 lenses and i don't regret selling and moving up to APS-C.

Oooh, I like!! I think Fuji just came out with a winner for those looking for an advanced compact camera to supplement their dSLR. F2 to 2.8 on a 28 to 112mm equivalent, full manual control, raw, view finder, 1/4000 shutter speed, etc .... can't beat that.

Panasonic is not sure whether to build products for videographers or photogs. Lenses such as these with motorized zoom and no rotating focus ring are not for "X", pro, enthusiast photographers.

In reply to:

Dwip: I nominate this for the Golden WTF award of 2011. It manages to combine a tiny sensor with the added cost and hassle of having to carry around multiple lenses, and wraps the package up with an extremely high price. Pentax would have done better by simply giving away the R&D money to the few customers in the target demographic.

Those few customers are exactly who PENTAX is targeting; demographic that does not conform to aging trends/standards. These PENTAXIANS do their research, find value in the unique offerings and as a result don't follow the herd.

The W(where)TF is your brain award should go to those who are quick to dismiss the potential of this little camera based solely on sensor size without seeing any hard samples or having handled the Q for themselves. This knee jerk reaction is most like due to their never ending quest for the "perfect" camera. Every once in a while they'll take that "wow, check out this awesome 6400 iso shot of my brick wall" and post it proudly to this forum. The pixel peeping "dark side" of photography is far removed from the true nature of photography. Which in my opinion is to have fun.

I applaud PENTAX for taking this bold move. What has Canon or Nikon done lately? Just more cookie cutter products for the herd.

Those who are quick to pass judgment based solely on sensor size, without any hard proof of actual IQ or handling of the Q are those who enjoy the pixel peeping "dark side" of photography.

I think odds are good that PENTAX was not thinking of you when producing this camera. So please continue posting your lame duck, pixel perfect shots of bricks and flowers.

The Q looks like it could be fun and isn't that what photography is supposed to be when you're not making a living from it? Granted the $800 price tag is a bit to swallow right now, but I applaud the bold move by PENTAX.

Great photo, but the name and date stamp completely distracts from the wonderful smile and composition.
