  1. An intriguing subject, this cropping and not easy to grasp. Here is my summary of the topic: Cropping means changing the angle of view of a picture, nothing more. So the DOF generated by the set up of the camera and the distance to the subject etc. will not change. Meaning that a picture taken by a Q2 wide open will keep all of it’s characteristics of the set up (FF, 28mm, f/1.7, distance of subject) except the angle of view generated by 28mm after cropping. Do I make a mistake somewhere? Regards, A Cappella
  2. Thanks for the reply and yes you are right. You sometimes read about the effective aperture while cropping, for instance in the review of the Q2 by mr. Slack (I quote:) The four digital zoom modes are: (addition thanks to John Kot in dPreview for calculating effective aperture) 28mm 8368 x 5584 47mp . effective aperture f1.7 35mm 6704 x 4472 30mp . effective aperture f2 50mm 4688 x 3128 14.6mp effective aperture f2.8 75mm 3136 x 2096 6.6mp . effective aperture f4.6 So I start to wonder: what is the definition of effective aperture in t
  3. Thanks for all the insights on the Q2 and Q2M, considering myself a Q2M Have a more theoretical question: what is the explanation of larger DOF while cropping, must have something to do with diameters of these famous ‘circles of confusion ‘ and the efeect of cropping (= enlarging) on them or am I wrong here. Is there a thread explaining this? Where explicit calculations are shown? Regards and thanks, Acapella
  4. Dear all, I am using the Leica Foto's app (2.1) with 'Geotagging' set to always and in the iPhone I also have set the switch 'Location data permission' to always. While shooting pictures (with the Q2 but also with the SL2) I can see the bluetooth and satelliet symbols projecten in the EVF. Still I do not see GPS data appear in the metadata (using Lightroom Classic). I must be missing something very simple here, has anybody any idea? Thanks & regards.
  5. Thanks for the explanation Jaapv. For my understanding: does this same lens on the FF sensor and the APS C sensor not also result in a (marginal) DOF difference (independent of cropping)? That’s how I read the table provided by Nicci in this same post (a FF f/x lens will on the APS -C sensor become a f/1.5x lens so with the different DOF characteristics). Or do I make a mistake here? Regards.
  6. Not knowing if this is the right thing to do but I use AF in tracking mode. While recomposing the original focus point (in fact area) stays in place. Interested if there are other methods Regards
  7. I was expecting the same as Peter Griebel: the possibility to place the crosshair very precise through magnification while in AF mode. (The D-Lux in AF spot mode automatically shows a magnification for doing so!). Overall: the SL2 is a wonderful camera. And thanks for all the tips and tricks in this forum for using the SL2 and getting to know it’s functionality. Regards
  8. Of course, always a possibility, you are right. But the ‘real time’ framing during crop-mode shooting could be an advantage. And it is one step less during post processing. A matter of taste I guess. Regards
  9. And don’t forget the advantage (as I see it) to use the ‘original’ SL lenses in 20MP crop mode!
  10. With all the (valuable) speculations on the advantages of the upcoming SL2 (good reading!) I never read anything about the pro’s/cons of this SL2 while using TL lenses. Did I missed that or is it a of no interest? Looks interesting to me. Regards
  11. Dear Exodies, Thanks for the answer. Yes,i know of the ‘detour’ with Apple photo’s. I thought it more elegant to use the Leica app also to avoid all this storing in the cloud. Anyway, it seems you are sure the orginal files are stored this way (and not smart previews) so once again thanks for the answer. Much appreciated. Regards, Acapella
