Where can one find the battery charge level? What's the best way to extend the battery life? If I shoot DNG/JPG, where do the JPGs end up? I don’t see them when I import the files into Lightroom. Are they the ones transferred over to the Leica Photos? If one shoots A for aperture, shutter speed, and focus, is it the same as Full Auto in Scene Mode? I notice the photos I take in Black and White turn to color when I import them into Lightroom. Importing the B&W photo into Leica Fotos shows it is B&W, which I assume is so that it can be shared. My question is: Are there specific Lightroom presets that show the Leica style? I occasionally get the red box with spinning circle. Why does it do that? I assume it’s writing to disk but I’ve had occasions where I haven’t taken a photo at all, so there’s nothing to “write to disk.” Can I use the Leica Q2 LCD panel to focus/shoot like my Canon 5D Mark IV? Maybe I’m wrong but I recall seeing a video of a Leica Q doing so. Does changing the user profile also change what’s found on the favorites menu? Is there any sort of logic for how to set up the FN versus the wheel button? I appreciate their usefulness but I find I can’t remember what’s where and I end up going back to the menu button. Any suggestions on how to set it up logically?
My M240 came back from Solms yesterday after the strap lug recall and I took a few test shots. I then realised the camera was set to the default JPG Fine instead of the RAW I normally use. When I tried to import the JPG files into Aperture I discovered they were not visible from within Aperture. The files were there and I copied them to the desktop. Again, I could not import them. At first I suspected a problem with Aperture and fired off a thread to the Apple Aperture discussion. Only later did I think to try a card from another camera and discovered everything was working properly. In the meantime I had done some RAW shots with the M and was surprised to find them appearing in Aperture as normal. I have since replicated this with another SD card and conclude that while RAW files are recognised, JPGs are not seen by the software. To my further surprise I found that the JPGs which were not recognised by Aperture would happily import to iPhoto. I cannot remember whether I ever shot JPG with the M before it went back to Solms, so I have no way of knowing for sure if this is something new. I am completely baffled and would be interested to hear if anyone else has had a similar experience. Michael
I'm interested to know what 'recipe' Leica is using to produce their 'incamera' jpgs. In other words: if I were to make my own BW jpgs in LR 4.1 from the imported DNG what BW 'curve' / mix / contrast etc. should I be using to get as close as possible to their incamera jpg. Of course I can try to achieve it by comparing (trial and error) but maybe this is known by some of you and published somewhere on this forum or elsewhere. Thanks in advance!
