ISO and Auto-Focus
ISO is at 100-12800 on the Pentax Q-7, sophotos in dark or low light settings shouldn’t be a problem. Images in lowlight and high ISO settings are good with little grain and noise. Auto-focusworks with Contrast Detect (sensor), Live View, Face Detection, and even inTracking for moving subjects and action shots.
The Sensor-shift Image stabilization gives you clear shots and lessens motionblur caused by subtle movements on the camera. This is also helpful when you’reusing telephoto lenses that are bigger than the camera body so it stays stable.
