Dog (Pentax Q)


Photo Information
A sample of what can be achieved with the Pentax Q and prime lens 01.

This has been through a workflow:
1. Developed in Lightroom from RAW DNG file
2. Working mask generated with Topaz ReMask 3
3. Used Photoshop tools to refine mask
4. Applied Photoshop Lens Blur for background
5. A touch of Topaz Adjust
6. Resize for web

Yes, there's a few little mask errors here and there that could be improved on, but I'm short of time

Honestly, I'm astonished with what I can get out of this little beastie! Its small size is definitely an advantage for these type of shots (actually a 'grab shot')

Enjoy large

Brilliant - seriously considering one of these because of the size and versatility, but doubt it could replace my K-r?

Chris, no it won't replace a current dSLR. Depth of field is huge, and at the moment you get 28-80mm equiv zoom and 47mm prime (plus fish eye option).

In terms of image quality, the K-5 will trump the Q (of course), but the Q is stupidly portable. Carry the Q for a while and the K-5 + DA*16-50 feels like a lead brick

But the Q is just an incredible amount of fun, with almost the same UI as the K-5 etc. And, because it's so small and quiet it opens up other image possibilities that just cannot be done with a dSLR

I just wanted to show with this image what can be achieved from this little gem

You need both

That's highly impressive - and the portability argument is a very strong 'un.

V. cute dog as well
