A nice camera, but for a better photographer than me...
on 12 August 2013
If you want a conversation piece camera - this is it! Guys love it because it has all the bells and whistles of a proper DSLR (gadget appeal), girls love it because it is tiny and "cute".
We have a proper DSLR, which this was supposed to augment, That you can just whip it out and snap away in Auto, then if you have the time to be a bit creative, you can adjust away to your hearts content. Trouble is the auto mode on the Pentax Q is awful and I'm not a good enough photographer to quickly adjust the settings to get a good photo in the semi manual modes.
I'm unsure at the moment if I want to persevere with this cool little camera, or cut my losses and whack it on a popular online auction site...
