Everyone else has a "Fun with..." thread so I thought I'd start one for this beautifully built, fun and quirky little picture taking machine.

To start here are a few from today's jaunt to a local Art and Wine Festival..

Nice shots taken with a nice, surprisingly good, little camera.

A weak AA filter makes it pretty darn sharp.

Nice. What lenses did you use? I see Bolex Yvar and Kern Switar lenses for 8mm cameras on the 'bay and wonder how those will work on the Q.

You need Bolex 16mm lenses (not 8mm) to cover the image circle ( and, I believe a D-mount adapter ) but yes, they are supposed to be quite good.

I hope to join you in keeping the thread alive, kdemas, as my used Q kit arrives on Monday.

Same here, I expect my Q by the end of next week. A truly amazing little camera.

Hmm.. I'd have thought that 16mm movie camera lenses have enough coverage for M4/3 (2x crop factor) and 8mm lenses are ok for the Q (5.5x crop factor).

The frame size of MFT is 13x17.3mm (the size of 110, by the way), the Q image size is 6.17x4.55mm.

16mm is a mere 7.4x10mm, 8mm is only 3.6x4.9mm, Super/Single 8 had 4.2x5.7mm (however interchangeable mount Super 8 cameras all had the same C mount as 16mm, and no S8 only primes seem to exist - but a few Schneider and Angenieux zooms have been made in dedicated S8 versions).

I have posted these elsewhere, but think they belong on this thread.
