    I'm using Pentax K30 for landscape shoot mainly for this 9 shots multi-exposure and the possibility to continue shooting without turning on long exposure NR. Great to see 9 shots Multi-expose on such a small sensor cam! How's the hot pixels on long exposure shots?

    Sorry for late reply.
    Got busy with other stuff.

    How long is the exposure you are thinking of?
    I can try it out and let you know.

    BC (Blur Control)

    To give the ability to get a more shallow DOF look on a small sensor camera, Pentax introduced a Blur Control mode on the Q system.
    It has its own dial position on the mode dial.

    I would not touch this thing with a barge pole on the older Q model, but I think it works a bit better on Q7.
    It can still come up with awful results though.

    If this mode allowed 3 frames (actual; front focused; back focused) to be saved and used for manual blending, that it would be so much better.

    BC = 'Being Corny' mode

    4.6x macro

    The Q7 again provides unique macro opportunities with its 4.6x crop sensor.

    I find that the newer sensor gives a bit better iso performance when need be (eg. a practical ISO200-400 for macro if necesary)
    The 5.6x vs 4.6x crop of the Q vs Q7 did not pose much of a practical difference as usually magnification was enough before 1:1 and considerations needed to be given to composition and having more DOF.

    The following 3 shots are with a trial Q7+06 zoom+ x4 close up filter.
    The x4 filter does not give as much magnification, but does give the advantage of a small light setup with auto aperture and auto focus as well as flash sync of 1/250.

    With dedicated macro lens.

    With a dedicated macro lens ( the Vivitar 55/2.8 macro this time).
    Options open a bit with its flexibility to do 1:1 macro (accentuated by the crop factor of 4.6x) and a fully usable focus range from minimum focus distance to infinity.

    Just to give an idea of what the Q7 with macro lens can get to with a very familiar subject.
    All images shown so far are mostly uncropped or just cropped slightly for composition, so thats how close the combi gets.



    I can't recall exactly, but I don't think this was at 1:1 yet.
    Doing a macro review is risky business.
    Had to be a blood donor.
