  1. I just firgure out that my Leica M10, the DNG files opened and exported to JPG by photoshop are always brighter and less contrast than the original JPG generated by M10 body.Is there something wrong? This is the jpg exported from dng. And this is original jpg by body
  2. Hi I have just came back from a trip where i used my Q2 for the first time massively and when i am importing the color are just becoming totally off. I tried the trial of Lightroom CC Classic and it definitely can show the right color. See below screenshots. There were no adjustment made at all in all case. Anyone having similar color issue with the perpetual version of Lightroom ? Many thanks
  3. Hi, I know that Lightroom is supporting the Q's crop mode in DNG, meaning it will automatically crop to 35mm or 50mm aspect with the ability to recover the 28mm frame. I know that Capture One unfortunately do not support the crop modes and will just display the full 28mm. I'd like to test the feature on other RAW converter before purchasing my Q. Would anyone be kind to send me a DNG file which has been taken in 35 or 50mm mode? Thanks a lot! Romain
  4. Ich habe RAW-Dateien aus der D-Lux 7 mit dem Adobe-DNG-Converter in DNG-Dateien umgewandelt und dann in Lightroom 6 importiert. Dort werden die Dateien ganz kurz in Farbe dargestellt, dann allerdings dauerhaft nur in SW. Gibt es eine Möglichkeit, die RAW-Dateien in LR6 als Farbbilder zu importieren, ohne auf das aktuelle LR-Abo umsteigen zu müssen?
  5. Hallo, ich habe aber die Suchfunktion zwar schon benutzt, bin aber auf nur wenige für mich relevante Artikel zum Thema Bildbearbeitung von Leica DNGs auf dem iPad gestoßen. Entweder suche ich falsch, oder das iPad scheint nicht sonderlich beliebt für die Bildbearbeitung zu sein. Wie dem auch sei, ich bin auf der Suche nach Tips und Erfahrungen zu dem Thema. Seit Jahren habe ich eine M8 und habe meine DNGs immer per CaptureOne auf dem Mac bearbeitet. Allerdings sind meine Macs und auch mein CaptureOne etwas in die Jahre gekommen und letzteres läuft seit einem OS Upgrade nicht mehr. Ich scheue aber die Investition in die neue Software, weil ich dann wohl die Hardware auch bald erneuern müsste. Aber ich habe ein aktuelles iPad Pro, dass mich, wie auch meine M8, auf allen meinen Reisen begleitet. Bis jetzt habe ich Apple Fotos und Adobe PS Express auf dem iPad ausprobiert. Allerdings bisher nur mit JPGs. Beides macht weder Spaß, noch bietet es mir die Optionen, die ich gerne hätte, wie Tonwertkurven oder selektive Bearbeitung mit Ebenen oder Masken. Hat jemand von Euch dazu relevante Erfahrungen? Gruß Tim
  6. Hi, I'm just a new Leica Q user. I found slightly difference between JPEG and DNG. My personally I really love jpeg output color. It not too vivid and give cool look. However it really hard to change JPEG White balance in Lightroom Is there anyway to archive JPEG look in DNG? Here are example (JPEG left, DNG right).
  7. Hey guys! So last week I went to my local Leica Store to check out the M10 - which is wonderful - but a tad bit expensive. At the same time I played around with the Q which seriously impressed me. So the next day I bought one. Do I really need it?- probably not. I own an M9 which I use daily and an S 006 which I use for shoots with Models. On both cameras I basically stick to one lens. Now, I've added this to the list of stuff people want from the new Firmware, but wanted to address it separately and a little more in depth none the less. The Qs DNGs are fixed at 41.3 MB. Compared to the ca. 18MB of my M9 (18 megapixels), ca. 24 MB of M240 (24 megapixels) and S (006)'s 38 MB for 37 Megapixels. Basically all the other Leicas I have owned have file sizes comparable to the megapixels of the sensor. - so why is this different in the Q ? The M10 according to a recent interview has compressed DNGs which are lossless and smaller again. - so Leica does care about the file size apparently. My two questions now: Will Leica address this in the next FW update ? (I know this is a question no one will be able to answer for sure, but I'd love to see your educated guesses) Is there an option to realistically compress the files more or less lossless in Order to save disk space? - I know there will be comments telling me that disk space is cheap - an it is - but I find it mostly just annoying to have the amount of HDDs I already have and will have to continue to buy in order to save my files. Also it's quite annoying in terms of power my laptop needs to load and work on the images ...
  8. Wondering what the Q gang out there are using as your own b/w RAW conversion workflow on the Q. Not jpeg monochrome settings. Straight RAW DNG files from color to bw. If you could share, would be great - custom profiles included. I know a lot of this is personal taste, still, would be great to hear your "how" an "why"... I do own a Q, and prefer not to spend a lot of time in post. I find the RAW files incredible with really no need to do much in post other than a little boost or minus here and there while staying with color …bw another story. Seems a little crunchy to me at first via LR conversion, through that may be bc I like more fine grain, less "massively treated" bw files. Guess I am more an Acros 100 lover (like the M246 comes close with digital), but that does not matter... I am more curious as to your own. MB
  9. Hello, I hope this is the right place for such a question. I happen to publish my pictures on ipernity.com, a reasonably-sized company who accepts full-format photos (of any size, up to gigantic panoramas) and basically any other format (DNG files, that even are previewable on site, but also texts etc.), allowing to view all fullsizes online while permitting their download only for those the author agrees on (a trick I didn't fully understand even now ;-) It happens IPernity just declared they are in financial difficulty, and may close in the coming months if they dont't 'find a solution'. As I don't expect they are going to double their ~3000 paying users, and various discussions about potential takeovers do not seem to converge, I have to face the idea that in a worst case things may indeed go wrong. So, what I am looking for is a hosting service that - must support any photo size (no '500pix' or those that seem to accept then resize) - allows various licenses, including 'Creative Commons' ones - does not belong to a planetary-sized company where I am a decimal within statistics in billions - doesn't impose me to exhaustively fill up 50 fields, including categories I didn't choose, before uploading a single picture (like Leica Fotopark ;-) - will not be free, which I accept. I think this sums it all. I have been registering on many sites for a couple of weeks -for nothing; indeed I didn't find yet a single site that'd feature just the first of the above points. So, I must say I'll welcome all your suggestion with the most extreme interest! Thank you, Hervé
  10. I recently collected my M9 body from Leica Mayfair, London, after sensor replacement. I was delighted to get it back, but on my first day shooting with it I encountered some problems. First, it froze when I took 3 single shots in quick succession. The red light flashed for 10+ minutes and an error message appeared - can't remember exactly what it said, but it referred to writing to memory. I left the camera alone, hoping it would eventually write to the memory card (newly formatted in-camera SanDisk Ultra 32GB SDHC I 40 MB/s Class 10). When I picked up the camera a few hours later the light wasn't flashing, but there was nothing on the memory card. Trying a second time, with the memory card formatted again, the camera worked but would only deliver DNG files. The menu allows me to choose between Compressed and uncompressed DNG, but no JPG option. The DNG files are satisfactory, image quality is fine, limited only by my own lack of ability ... It's several years since I had last used the camera because I changed to a Sony A7 before I sent the M9 for sensor repair, so I cannot recall how I originally set it to record RAW+JPG, and now I cannot see any such option on the menu. I find it difficult to believe the camera won't provide JPGs, so I must be doing something wrong. Any suggestions welcome.
  11. Hallo zusammen, Eine Frage bzgl. DNG-Settings: Ich habe nur DNG eingestellt und erhalte dann naturgemäß auch nur DNGs auf der Speicherkarte. Stelle ich dann bei den JPG schwarzweiss ein, werden die entsprechenden DNGs auch schwarzweiss abgespeichert. Also wohlgemerkt bei reinem DNG-Shooting. Bisher (Fuji) kenne ich das nur so, dass das DNG immer in Farbe gespeichert wird, auch wenn die Sucher-Vorschau (EVF) schwarzweiss simuliert. Ist das jetzt Leica typisch oder etwa ein Software-Bug? Danke im voraus für die Hilfe. Paul
  12. Hallo, ich bin absolut neu im Laca-Club ;-) Jetzt habe ich am Anfang im jpg und dng parallel fotografiert und habe folgendes festgestellt. Die Farben der Leica-Jpg-Daten sind der Wahnsinn. Doch sobald Lightroom für die DNG-Daten die Vorschauen rendert ist der tolle Look verschwunden ;-( Mit Einstellungen und Presets komme ich nicht an den originalen Look der Jpg-Daten ran, würde aber gerne im DNG-fotografieren. Gibt es eine "Workaround", Presets oder wie erhält man die Farben von Leica bei den DNG's und kann diese trotzdem bearbeiten. Vielen dank für die Hilfe, ~Alexey
  13. Hello, yesterday I tried to open DNG's with DxO Optics Pro directly and it says "file format not supported". I found in the internet, that it works with Adobe DNG. So I importet my photos into Lightroom CC as "copy as DNG". I have the plug-in for DxO Optics Pro in Lightroom but when I tried to open the images, I again got the error message. Am I missing something here ? Thank you very much for your replies. Greetings, Jurgen
  14. Bin seit letztem Freitag glücklicher Besitzer einer Monochrom und soweit recht begeistert von der Qualität der Bilder. Mir ist jedoch aufgefallen, dass bei Einstellung von DNGs in den Settings die Kamera keinerlei Objektivdaten in die Metadaten schreibt. Also nicht etwa Summilux X, Noctilux etc., sondern allenfalls eine Angabe der Brennweite erfolgt. Außerdem werden in Lightroom im Importdialog keine Previews angezeigt, sondern lediglich die DNG-Logos. Das passiert sowohl bei Verbindung über USB als auch bei direktem Auslesen von der SD-Karte. Bei den gleichen Kameraeinstellungen lassen sich die beiden Probleme mit der M9-P nicht nachstellen. Habt Ihr auch dieses Problem?

    DNG only?

    Though being very happy with my X2, I do miss the possibility to make DNG-only shots! Do you think a firmware update could change that - and in case - could one hope for that to come? I am new to Leica.
  16. Hi everyone, I just got my new M (and it's AMAZING) and I have a question: is there any downside to using the compressed DNG? The instructions say that the compression is loss-less which sounds good but I'm curious if there are any negatives of using it? Are there any downsides? -Steve
  17. I took delivery of a Monochrom today, and shot a number of images, went to import them into Lightroom 4 and the DNG files do not have a preview. I re formated the memory card and tried a few cards, with the same result. Also tried LR4 on another laptop, same thing. There is also no preview when just opening the cards on the the desk top. I'm using a MacBook Pro and all software is up to date. Once the files are imported into LR, the image can be seen. I have an M9 and have no problem, also no problem when I had an M8. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks
  18. hi, i hope Im in the right place for this question. say i have a Leica M Monochrom DNG raw file, then i convert it to a TIF file using photoshop. will there be any difference between the original DNG and the converted TIF (besides file size) ?? since there is no demosaicing, i cant see any difference. is that true ? thanks in advance, koferk.
  19. On page 164, the M240 manual states : " The available compression for DNG format .... retains all of the post-editing performed on the image data ..... " I don't understand this ............ I thought RAW meant direct recording of the sensor readout without alteration. Does the M 240 process/edit the DNG files in some way before writing to the card ? Does anyone know what is done in-camera to the DNG files ? Hoping someone can enlighten me please .... Many Thanks.
  20. Hello fellow M8 users, I am very happy to announce that I finished the tool mentioned in the thread M8 goes uncompressed DNG! It creates 16bit (acually 14bit in a 16bit container) DNG files from the M8 RAW files with slightly more pixels and much more discrete values compared to the 8bit standard DNG. I even set up a website with download, comment function, contact form and whatnot... even though I am really not familiar with web programming so please be lenient if it is not as polished as this site here for example. The command-line tool is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, so I am now looking forward to getting some input after you tested it on your own files. You can find more information on m8raw2dng.de. I am trying to make the program as good as possible (because I am using it myself on a daily basis). To achieve this I thought it clever to share it with the community even though I had to create a completely new software from scratch in C++ even though I already have a running version in Matlab with more functionality. But I think that'll change as I focus now on the C++ version. I invite you to share this information with other M8 users on other forums, flickr groups, wherever you like. Have fun and good results, Arvid
  21. Hi there, I'm looking into picking up a M9 or M-E (and possibly an M 240, depending on cash flow). Right now I'm trying to determine if higher ISO shots from the M9 will be usable for me, and I haven't found any sample DNG's on the web anywhere at ISO 800+. I've read that shooting at ISO 640 and pushing in post is probably a better method for achieving quality low light images, so if anyone has an underexposed ISO 640 image that I could push that would be helpful as well. Does anyone have a few they could upload/share, or perhaps even point me to some existing samples with working links? Thanks.
  22. Hallo zusammen, wenn ich von meiner D-Lux 4 eine RAW Datei in Lightroom "als DNG" importiere, dort bearbeite und dann als DNG exportiere um sie z. B. einem Kollegen weiter zu geben, habe ich im Finder kein Vorschaubild mehr und Vorschau kann die Datei auch nicht mehr öffnen. Gibt es hier für eine Erklärung/ Lösung? Ach so, bei anderen Kameras ist das nicht so. Danke und Gruß Roman
  23. I use my M9 for documentation of the urban environment. Often, there is a detail (such as a poster or a sign) that I want to be able to read, some of the time it is not in the center of the image but in a corner or at the edge. Hence the need for the best resolution lenses with little falloff in the outer zones, hence the Leica, especially something like the 18mm or 21mm Super Elmar. Can I get away with JPEG rather than DNG? In other words: Do I lose much or any resolution, given the limits of the M9 sensor, if I only have JPEGs. My concern is longer term--say fifty years from now and I get curious about a sign in a window. (My inspiration is the work of Charles Marville in Paris, ~1865, but his work is with 30x40cm plates and on a tripod.)
  24. Much criticized Ken Rockwell has constantly written that he loves most everything about the M9 except its DNG color. Even though he prefers to shoot in JPG, he says that he would be quite willing to shoot with the M9's DNG if he could thereby find a PP remedy for the its allegedly poor rendering of colors. On 1/7/11, he wrote that after seeing "some great images from Leica's M9 as processed through Aperture 3," he downloaded it's latest version for trial. But that version, he claims, can read only M9 DNGs shot prior to his installed M9 firmware 1.138: "This compatibility baloney always haunts raw shooters, which is just one of innumerable reasons I prefer JPG. It's just that I'd love to figure out how to get a good picture out of the M9.As we say in real estate when trying to sell an awful house, the M9 'has great potential.' " Anyone's observations, comments, lines of thought?
  25. Hallo Zusammen, ich habe ein DNG in LR3 importiert, einige Anpassungen gemacht, z.B. in SW gewandelt usw., und würde es nun gern wieder in DNG exportieren. Der Export funktioniert, leider werden aber die Änderungen nicht mit exportiert, es wird immer nur das Original Bild exportiert. Wird das Bild als Jpg oder TIFF exportiert, dann werden die Änderungen übernommen. Was mache ich falsch? Danke für Eure Hilfe. Gruss, Marco
