  1. Unless the OP doesn't want the weight/cumbersomeness of dragging around 2 cameras and bag.
  2. not trying to be confrontational but just wondering - why did you get the Q2M if you have a desire (even if infrequent) to shoot color? My take (which has been criticized by some Q2M owners) is that if someone doesn't have money to buy both the Q2 and Q2M and has a desire to sometimes take color images, that person should not get the Q2M regardless how great its low light capabilities are. But back to your question: my vote is against carrying 2 cameras. Do you still have your Q? If so take it. If not, rent/borrow a Q or Q2. On the limited times that low light functionality is desirable,
  3. okay now it worked AFTER I installed Chrome and downloaded from it instead of Edge. Go figure.
  4. I'm having a problem I've never had before when updating the firmware. I downloaded the Q2 update file but the camera says file not found when I go to update. I even tried downloading directly to my SD card instead of downloading to my laptop and then copying to the SD card, and still the camera says it's not recognized. I wonder if Edge is doing something to the download.
  5. well no one can argue with what your eye sees, but for what it's worth, my eye sees no difference and instead properly shot images with both cameras are superb in my opinion. Perhaps 2 things influence what you see: first, just overall nostalgia for the original Q which was so revolutionary when released, and second, given the higher resolving power of the Q2, it's absolutely essential to ensure a high enough shutter to overcome subject or hand motion blur, no matter however so slight.
  6. I disagree. MF coupled with zoom and focus peaking with both the Q and Q2 shoot static subjects far better than AF of any stripe.

  8. ;you explained it PERFECTLY, thanks so much!!!
  9. We met our group in Inverness and hiked around that area. Then last few days we hiked in various parts of the Isle of Skye. I fell in love with Scotland, would move there in a heartbeat although my husband says I'd be miserable in the constant cold/wet weather compared to Florida
  10. I see - yes I want ability to toggle between 3x and 6x, but like to use my right wheel button for ISO settings. Is there another way I can access that toggle feature?
  11. I must be dense - can't figure out how to change manual focus zoom from 3x to 6x. I'd appreciate if you could tell me how to change that, thanks!
  12. who in this thread has advocated irresponsible use of the camera in adverse conditions? And now you're accusing me of making "political implications" just so you can then say I'm in violation of rules? You'd be wise to engage in thoughtful and critical self examination of your initial posts rather than reject any inference that they were wrong. Simply because you're a moderator doesn't mean that everything you express is beyond reproach nor that people who call you on it are now in violation of rules.
