Read The Pentax Q Stress Test: Day 1
Friday was the day the IMG shows begin at Lincoln Center. I'm backstage at the first show, Nicholas K. I bring both the Pentax Q and my 7D with a 17-40/4 L with me. I also shoot parts of the Candela and Porter Grey Presentations with the Pentax Q. I'm fully impressed with the quality the Pentax Q is generating. The Q came to the rescue at Candela when the flash tube on my Metz 54 MZ-4i exploded on me! I finished the presentation with the Q, and my editor liked the photos quite a bit.
The Q is getting a lot of positive attention from my fellow photographers. a few ask for my SD card and pull up the files on their laptops and are excited and want to buy the camera! I don't blame them. I am going to be very sad when I turn this camera back in.
Now comes a real test: low light fun out on 5th Ave on Fashion's Night Out. Henri Bendel's, Sak's Fifth Avenue, Versace, Diesel and Rockefeller Center, the Q handled the situations well. I feel very confident with it. Tomorrow I'll stop by Adorama and grab that prototype wireless flash controller and use it with the Q and my backup Metz to do some front row, all presentations and lobby shots.
On to day 3...
