Pentax Q7 Sports Photography Detailed Analysis
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 Max shutter speed: 1/2000s
Pentax Q7's max shutter speed of 1/2000s is not the best in class but it will be enough to freeze the moment. A potential problem may be when you use a fast aperture at very strong light, your camera may overexpose because of slow max shutter speed Average Ergonomics&Handling
although not as good as a DSLR body, Pentax Q7 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. Unknown 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.
