Photo Information
I have deliberated many times over the Pentax Q/Q10/Q7 and always came to the conclusion that it was not as good as a DSLR and, therefore not a useful tool. How wrong was I?! Recent price drop and the need for a decent travel camera has seen me purchase a Q10. While the IQ isnít up to DSLR standards (and never can be), I have used this camera more in a week than my DSLR in a month! You can take this anywhere and it provides the same control and photographer friendly handling you expect from a Pentax camera. I wish I had purchased earlier; this camera somehow brings the fun back into photography (and the IQ is far from poor!).

It looks to be very capable.

Certainly seems to do the job!

Cracking shot, obviously worth the investment

Thank you for your comments.

I was after blur with the figures in the image, but did not happen to have a tripod with me. So, the shot is 1/6th of a second hand held and I thought I was really pushing it. However, the Pentax SR system has done a cracking job and I think I might even have been able to push it to 1/4 of a second.

I carry the Q10 everywhere now; just wish I'd bought one sooner!
