  1. 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).
  2. I'm serious considering purchasing a Q this week but I would really love to see what the OOC JPEGs look like. I currently shoot with a Sony A7RII and 99% of the time my go-to lens is the Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2. My only complaint with the Sony is I'm not very fond of the colours. I like to post my images directly on social media so the OOC JPEGs do really matter to me. Please help me with my decision by posting some of your OOC JPEGs with your Q! Thank you!
  3. 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.
  4. Ich möchte mal eine Diskussion anstoßen, die ich im Forum nicht finden konnte. Ich denke im Moment über einen Wechsel von der M9 zur M (240) nach. Bitte hier keine neue Diskussion starten, ob das Sinn macht oder nicht. Dies wurde zur Genüge besprochen! Ich fotografieren mit der M9 bevorzugt JPEG´s im schwarz-weiss Modus mit erhöhtem Kontrast und bin immer wieder absolut begeistert von den Ergebnissen. Da ich nicht gerne bearbeite oder in schwarz-weiss konvertiere, macht es natürlich sehr viel Spass, wen solche Bilder gleich aus der Kamera kommen. Jetzt meine Frage: Fotografiert jemand auf diese Art mit der M (240) und kann mir was zu der Bildqualität sagen. Wenn ich Bilder im Internet anschaue, weiss ich ja leider nicht, ob die Bilder bearbeitet sind oder nicht! Bin gespannt auf Eure Antworten!

  6. Weil ständig unterschiedliche Ansichten in den Foren kursieren: Meiner Kenntnis nach ist die 6-BIT- Codierung nur bei JPEG- Aufnahmen sinnvoll, da hier der kamerainterne Prozess Objektivfehler korrigieren kann. Bei RAW- Aufnahmen dagegen werden die Daten eben nicht korrigiert, also macht die Codierung keinen Sinn. Der einzige Vorteil wäre lediglich, dass die EXIF- Dateien helfen, zB. bei der Bearbeitung in Lightroom das Objektiv erkennen zu lassen und so eine Objektiv- Korrektur nachträglich vorgenommen werden kann, sofern das spezifischen Objektiv-Profil in Lightroom aufzurufen ist. Ist das so korrekt?!
  7. I bought a Leica V-LUX 40 a couple of months ago. I'm very happy of it, but I would ask if there is some way to reduce the artifacts on the final image at making stage of the image directly from the camera. Thanks
  8. I realy neet help, even if it is not only focused on Leica jpeg files As from this monday nobody can read my jpg files any more, after I have saved them with my Photoshop CS 5. I don´t understand this, es there where never problem sice I have my Photoshop CS5. The files can not be opened on PC, iPhone or another Imac. I am thankfull for any help best regards Harald LUDWIG
  9. Bitte Teilt mir doch eure Erfahrungen mit dieser Menueinstellung mit. 1.Habt Ihr sie eingeschaltet? 2.Oder entrauscht Ihr erst bei Bedarf und wenn ja mit welcher Software? 3.Und wie macht sie sich bei RAW + JPEG positiv oder negativ bemerkbar? 4.Ist sie sinnvoll bei höheren ISO Einstellungen? Ab 400? Danke
  10. 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.)
  11. I've set up my iMac with Lightroom and a mirrored external hard drive, and am good to go. I imported (with a few hiccups) my iPhoto library, and am ready to import photos from the SDHC card in my D-lux 4 for the first time. All the tutorials I've looked at so far talk about importing RAW files, and about importing jpeg files, but seem to use slightly different settings for the two different formats. How can I best import both the jpegs and the RAW files from my Leica? Is there a particular setting people use? Thanks in advance, J.
  12. Hello! I would much appreciate advice to all or any individual part of my set of questions: I intend to bring my in-Lightroom 2.6 developed X1 dngs to a printing lab. How to export them (as jpegs) without unintentionally worsening the best possible printing quality at the stage of saving? I assume that I have to save them as jpegs. (Is this not the best option, or would I benefit from using another format?) X1 provides jpegs as normal, fine and superfine. Why is this no longer a specified option/ relevant division in Lightroom, in where dngs are being exported as jpegs? That is, why cannot I export dngs as superfine jpegs, given that superfine is more detailed than a regular one? I have further trouble understanding what to enter under 'Resize to Fit' (Width & Height). Should the print size determine what values I had best to enter? If print size matters, I aim to take cm 15* 25,5, and 20* 30 prints. It seems to be possible to specify more pixels to an image than what the camera has initially recorded. What is the implication for the printing quality if I tell Lightroom to include more pixels than what the camera's physical limit is. Does Lightroom now invent new pixels in between the original ones, which would presumably make the print quality suffer? Is this possibility to invent new pixels retroactively in Lightroom something that I could use with considerably cropped images, to make them look smooth in prints? Otherwise, is it not best to set no less and no more pixels than what the camera manual informs as the actual number with reference to dng (4288*2862)? If the maximum pixel number ---up to the limit that the camera has originally produced--- is the best option, is it recommended that I export the dngs as jpegs according to the maximum pixel number for JPEG in X1 (4272*2856), or will the jpeg pixels actually reach the number of a dng when burnt not by the camera but by a computer from a dng source information? Third, which resolution value should I enter in order to ensure the best printing quality. I think to know that there is a limit above which an eye cannot discern details, but is there a downside to entering a little greater value than what is needed or possible, rather than entering a bit lesser value that is possible, if the file size is ignored? Many thanks for any replies in advance!
  13. Here are some crops from the jpeg versions of pix I shot in Salt Lake. No post-processing except for cropping. I note that Leica has vastly improved the sharpening algorithms. None of the video-like halos that appeared in the M8 unless in-camera sharpening was turned completely off. I also note that ISO 2500 is extremely noise-free (for the ISO) Shot of the M8 on pedestal: ISO 2500, mixed tungsten spotlight overhead and window daylight, 135 TE @ f/4 and 1/60th (so a touch of camera shake), "normal" sharpening setting. Detail of the "Leica" shirt is from the same shot, in DNG form, that I posted on my original report. 21 Elmarit, ISO 1600, f/2.8, "soft" sharpening setting (according EXIF - I don't know which menu setting that corresponds to precisely). Anyway, for your consideration...
