i have a pentax Q, the standard prime and the toy wide.

the little Q would currently be my most used camera. it is nothing to throw it in a pocket and head out the door. it also shoots 1080p at 30 frames a second with a total record time somewhere up around 25 mins.

if Pentax get's an external mic port in there somewhere... it would be damn near perfect!

Funny video, didn't know it and, yep, that's exactly what happened to me when I got mine: just felt like playing with it and still having a lot of fun! Maybe I have been a victim of publicity...

I just picked up a Q with the 8.5 mm (47 equiv) for 149 euros.
A seriously great camera for its size.
User interface is logical.
Controls are ergonomic.
Reasonable AF speed.

At its original price I felt it was expensive (but then you pay for early adoption and the miniaturization). At current prices, the Q is well worth it !

I find that the Q shooting at ISO 400 in B&W is strangely similar to Kodak Tri-X. not bad for $200 including the lens. Plus you know what they say: There is no photograph if there is no camera. (or something like that) The Q fits easily in my front pants pocket.

If I could get one with the prime for $200, I'd do it too.
