Pentax Q-S1 Sports Photography Detailed Analysis
Fast Max shutter speed: 1/8000s
Pentax Q-S1's 1/8000s shutter speed is fast enough to freeze any almost all sports action and is also helpful when you use a fast lens at largest aperture under bright sunlight. Image Stabilization
Image stabilization reduces the effects of camera shake at long focal lengths thus ensuring sharper photos during sports photography.
Average Continuous Shooting: 5.0fps
In the world of sports photography, faster is always better. Average Ergonomics&Handling
although not as good as a DSLR body, Pentax Q-S1 is good enough for most conditions.
Most outdoor sports games are held in all-weather, so your camera has to be ready for difficult conditions such as rain and snow. Exposure to dust and water splashes are also very common in sports. Focus Points
In sports photography , you keep continuous autofocus (AFC) mode on for tracking the subject and more focus means better tracking. Poor Battery Life: 250 shots
In most sports events, you shoot at high speed for a long time and this drains the battery pretty quick. With a battery life of only 250 shots per charge, you may need to change batteries very frequently in the middle of an event. No Built-in Viewfinder
In the lack of a a viewfinder, holding the camera away from the body while using live view is not very stable, especial with heavy camera bodies and lenses. Besides, LCD screens are very hard to read under bright sunlight.
