  1. I'm debating the same. I have the Q-P but want the Q2M rather than the Q2. Having previously owned an M10 and M246 mono, it's the M246 that I regret selling despite my poor ability to nail focus. I have replaced the M's with an X-Pro3 which better fits my needs. My Q-P is almost duplicated with my fuji 16mm 1.4 so I could let the Q-P go but I would probably regret it. I'm not a bw only shooter but those monochrom files are indeed something special.
  2. Never seen it before. Or at least never noticed it. Curious as to why this happens though.
  3. If you look at the first sample image on this page you can see a strange effect in the bokeh resembling double vision: https://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/leica_q2_monochrom_review/sample_images Look at the window frames top left. I can't see this happening elsewhere. Anyone know what this is?
  4. Please accept my apologies. I guess you know too well about the issues of scanning poorly exposed film. I’m relatively inexperienced but have had time to benefit from a lot of mistakes.
  5. I've had images like this before that were caused by under exposure errors that were auto corrected by the scanner. Most scanners are set to auto expose which masks exposure errors. If you look at the negs you can tell to a degree if the exposure was off. You can also ask your lab to not correct exposure during scan.
  6. I always prefer to carry two bodies as I hate changing lenses. I did this for a while with an MP in silver and an M-A in black which was fun. In the end I gravitated to shooting one digital body and one film body. My setup has now stabilised with the Q-P and the M-A with the lovely Zeiss 50mm Sonnar.
  7. Choice of film stocks is largely influenced by an individuals appetite for grain. Personally I think that prominent grain suits some types of photography more than others. Portrait photography and grain go together very well. I think this is where HP5 and Tri-X do best. These film stocks don't fair so well in street photography where faces are usually further away. Grain interferes with fine details so if fine details are important then grain becomes your enemy and PanF 50 and other low speed films give better results. Especially modern T-grain films like delta and tmax. Grain is also s
  8. Provia 100F is great for sunny days. Beautiful reds and high resolution. i like Pan F, Delta 100 and tmax 400 for b&w
  9. I’ve never done this but I would not be worried as the tank is light tight. I would put the top on to be extra sure but that’s just me.
  10. The Nikon version of the remote trigger. I have the Sony V1 which works with my Sony and Fuji triggers. I don’t know if the V1 works with my Q as an on camera flash but I have my SF40 for that anyway. i wish I had bought the x-pro trigger instead of the x1t trigger as it covers the shutter speed dial
  11. The V1 version is not relevant. It's the trigger version that is important. Single pin refers the central pin that carries the fire signal. Everything else is switched off. This means that you don't get TTL and will need to set the flash power manually. I know that the Fuji works on the Q and I have heard that the Nikon trigger works too. Don't know about SL2. I would guess it's flash is the same as the Q.
  12. No it didn't. It has single pin mode but the fit is too tight. I managed to get it on but maybe the pin was not over the contact.
  13. Brilliant - it works (fujifilm trigger ) - thanks v much
  14. Which triggers? I have Fuji and Sony Xpro triggers but am nervous of using them as manual warns against.
  15. I have Sony and Fujifilm flash. how did you find out if the camera would not be damaged?
