  1. When i was doing my initial research when considering to purchase this flash i did not find any other pictures than the official product photos that's only from the front. I picked it up from my retailer today, and thought i'd post some pictures of the flash from the front and back, and on the Q as well for size comparison. I were eyeballing this flash for a while, It is the same as a Nissin i40, just rebranded and with support for Leica TTL, seems to work perfect on the Q and should probably do the job in the scenarios where the Q is with me.

  3. Been using a SF-40 with my Leica Q all weekend. Had a couple of issues... wondering whether this is typical behaviour, or an issue with the SF-40 or the Q? 1. Fairly frequently (say every 10 shots or so) the Pilot LED on the flash will not turn green but stay red, and the unit won't fire. The only solution is to power the SF-40 off and on again. 2. Occasionally the SF-40 will fire at full power for no apparent reason, after which the Pilot light will stay red as in point 1, and the unit will have to be turned off and on again. The two seem linked though not completely, as 1 happens much more than 2 does. Has anyone else experienced this while using the SF-40 or using any flash on the Q? I bought my SF-40 2nd hand however it seems in perfect condition apart from the issues above. I bought it from a camera shop so can fortunately return it i does prove to be faulty.
  4. Hi All - New to the forum & the Leica world. Old photographer however. Coming from mostly Nikon, Fuji, Ricoh. I have the new Q, fw 2.0. Loving it. But I seem to get unpredictable results with Auto ISO. I tend to shoot manual aperture & shutter, letting the ISO move within my chosen range. I always select my aperture. Occasionally I will select an aperture, put shutter on 'A', but still let ISO move up or down within my range. It seems no matter what I set my Q Auto ISO settings to - 1/15th & 6400 max for example, when putting the camera in 'A' shutter speed, the camera will start raising the ISO while remaining at 1/60th? Should not the camera be allowing the shutter speed to drop to 1/15th before raising ISO? Is not the functionality (more importantly the terminology) similar to most other manufacturers? Iv'e read some of the threads here that attempt to answer this but I haven't seen a clear explanation? The result I'm looking for: Pick an aperture, say f2.8 Put shutter dial on 'A' Set Auto ISO to 1/15th, 6400 I'm expecting camera to keep ISO at 100 down to a shutter of 1/15th before raising ISO Example of what does happen: Pick f28 Shutter dial on 'A' Auto ISO to 1/15th, 6400 Camera will stop dropping shutter speed at 1/60th, the ISO will move from 100 up/down to 1,000 or whatever it needs to meter. I must be missing something? Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Many Thanks
  5. Hallo zusammen, Ich habe über die Suchfunktion zu diesem Thema im deutschsprachigen Forum noch keinen Thread gefunden, deshalb eröffne ich hier mal einen. Ich hätte gerne einen Polfilter für meine Leica Q und habe wegen seiner flachen Bauweise bereits den B+W Zirkularpolfilter nach Käsmann HTC MRC nano XS-Pro Digital ins Auge gefasst. 1. Hat jemand Erfahrung mit diesem oder einem anderen Polfilter an der Q? 2. Lässt sich der Filter mit angesetzter Gegenlichtblende drehen? Danke für Eure Antworten.
  6. My download of the new FW 2.0 went smoothness and everything seems to be in place. However, having saved my profiles from the previous FW to an SD card, I would like to "reimport" them to the new 2.0 FW version, but HOW? Any suggestion would be most welcome

  8. Hello All, This is my first post on the forum. I have few questions which may have been asked and replied to earlier but bear with me. I have been photographing for last almost 35 years. I am not a professional .Photography is my hobby. The Leica products that I own are couple of Trinovid binoculars which are inspite of heavy use for last twenty years are as good as new. Currently I have a Canon 5D-S and Canon 35mm 1.4 ii plus a 100mm macro lens. With the 50 MP resolution of the Canon 5D-S,the outfit is brilliant. I have no complaints. Lately ,due to my increased job commitments, many times I am leaving the DSLR back home and the DSLR is taken only on the longer trips few times a year and there too I am finding it rather tiresome to carry it around. I need a smaller and more lighter outfit and having known about Leica quality for decades,I was contemplating making a switch. I have few questions and I will be grateful if the experts out there guide me. I know these decisions are subjective but I would like to know your opinion so that it will help me to decide as I am fairly confused right now. Will it be better if I keep the existing Canon outfit,to be used sparingly, and complement it with a Leica Q? In the alternative, sell the Canon outfit and buy a Leica M240 with 35mm or 50 mm lens? If I take the second option,will the quality of image of M240 with Summilux 35 be comparable to the Canon outfit that I have? M240 will be more compact I sure ,but I am scared that I am not selling away a high resolution camera like the Canon 5D-S and the quality of M240 may not match it at all.Most of the switch stories so far I have read are about 5d Mark III,which is 24MP. To put a rider, its not that a non-professional like me must have a 50MP camera. i am extremely tempted to switch over to Leica M240 entirely,but for the above concern about the picture quality .I could add Leica Q to the existing outfit, but it means additional expense. I use the camera for landscapes, abstract,portraits,street and travel photography. Since in India it is not possible to rent a Leica to try it out ,please advice. Thank you in advance. N.Shah
  9. Hallo zusammen, gibt es hier zufällig noch jemanden, der Spaß am Filmen hat und dieses Hobby auch schon mal mit seiner Leica Q näher verfolgt hat? Oder kennt vielleicht wer andere Foren in denen dieses Thema schon einmal erörtert wurde? Mir ist bewusst, dass die Leica Q in erster Linie auf das Fotografieren ausgerichtet wurde (zumindest bis jetzt)... Theoretisch hat sie es ja technisch drauf und mit dem 28mm bei der Lichtstärke und einem Vollformat Sensor in der Package ließen sich echt tolle Filmchen machen. Was ich absolut nicht verstehen kann: Warum darf ich als Nutzer der Leica Q Handy App im Video Modus ALLE Belichtungseinstellungen manuell vornehmen, nur nicht direkt an der Kamera? Warum werde ich dadurch außerdem gezwungen mir das Bild auf dem per WLAN gepairten Handy anzuschauen statt durch den integrierten Sucher oder den Kamera Bildschirm (mit Lag)? WARUM??? Mit dem Handy ist ja super wenn ich eine Stadicam benutze. Von daher gibt's für dieses Feature definitiv schon mal 100 Punkte von mir. Aber dann doch bitte bitte auch direkt an der Kamera...! Liebes Support Team bei LEICA: Bitte kommt endlich mit einem vernünftigen Firmware Update um die Ecke! Die Kamera kann so viel mehr

  13. Hello. I would ask for advice. I am a new user of Leica Q. Excellent camera. J I work with DNG files in Lightroom. Under the tab Camera calibration are two profiles, namely Embedded Standard and Adobe. When using these two colors are different, and also the color temperature (White balance –WB in numbers). What is your experience - which profile is correct for the proper display of color and as a basis for further processing. Thank you. Best regards. Tomaz

  15. Leica Q is popular among Travel photographers I am surprised that there is no Geotagging feature, hope Leica or some third party introduce this accessory. Most Leica Q owners will buy it. there are Hot shoe mount Geotagging device available for Canon and Nikon, if that is possible for them why not for "Q"?
  16. When I fit the lens hood and tighten fully, it sits at a 20 degree angle from square. Can this be correct? It irrationally irritates me! For me, this angled rotation also raises the question of why the hood is such an odd shape anyway! Is flare a problem only in four 'corners' of the lens? Would a fully round hood cause vignetting? If so, then I guess the funny angle is quite deliberate ... but I remain to be convinced! Am I the only angled hoodie on this forum, or is this a common (or compulsory) Q condition?

  18. These days the weather is being dominated by a series of thunderstorm. After a rainshower in the evening light one has to grab camera and rush out to catch the light. For these cases the Leica Q is a great tool being fast, exact and macroproof.
  19. Every year I look forward to the seasons of peonies. We have differetn types in our garden and it is a nice afterwork challenge to find frame and light. Leica Q

  23. It was a bad fishing night he told me, but, the early sun rays of that day were not to be missed or pissed by any fish count. A coffee for both, a cigarette for him and a long chat. Mediterranean sea, Ancient city and port of Tyre. Lebanon.
  24. I don't need to ask whether I should or I shouldn't. I'm taking my Q, confident in the camera's ability to take great shots.....provided I have the ability to compose those great shots.
