Thanks Andrew - 99.9% of my images will never get printed, but every now and then I like an A3 to put on the wall

If anyone has experience of printing to that sort of size form the MX-1 I'd be interested to hear how they got on. David seems to think it's possible, but before I take a punt I'd like to know if people have done it !

I routinely make A3 prints from the Q-S1 and MX-1 cameras and enter them in competitions. Nobody bats an eyelid. they look as good as anything else.
Best regards, John

Looks like from this set anyway that the camera is a little pocket rocket. Coupled with your eye for a photo a winning pair.

Thanks John - that's what I was after - The original Q is really pushing it much above A4 but I guess the later (and slightly larger?) sensors in the Q-S1 and MX-1 make the difference

Yes, the larger sensors are better.

Well there you are then. I couldn't be more wrong.

How big could one print images from the new 35mm size sensor, I wonder? Or even the K3 with all those pixels.
Best wishes,

In truth, Ian, these shots are more about the camera than the photographer. I can't see the screen half the time in the bright southern sunshine and just make a guess about what's where in the frame. I always shoot in RAW with aperture priority and auto ISO restricted to 400ASA, leaving the camera to do its stuff.

I took several hundred pictures in Menorca and not one of them is badly exposed (or at least easily recoverable during RAW processing) or out of focus. It's a remarkable little camera. I'd love to offer Pentax the specifications for a mark II...
Best wishes,

Andrew

Agree with Carl, no.12 with the bike is great but the whole set is of a very quality.

I'm just wondering what the lighthouse image would look like if you pushed the whites up a little ?

You've a point there, Gareth. I live in fear of blowing-out the highlights I often underexpose shots which, I think, makes them a bit murky.
