I’d really love to hear from those with extensive Leica Q/Q-P experience who are now shooting with the Q2. I want to focus on the aesthetic image differences between the two models, not necessarily technical or feature aspects. Features aside and “all things being equal”, the Q2 has better dynamic range/shadow recovery (especially at lower ISOs) and the classic Q/Q-P better noise handling at higher ISOs. Both use the same lens, the Q2 has higher resolution clearly – but the classic does have larger pixels. Pixel density and size are different between models, but I’m sure the Q2 is benefiting from other sensor advancements. Sensor size is the same for both, but Leica is fitting in a lot more to yield a higher MP image. I wonder what IQ sacrifices (if any) they would be making to accomplish this? In general, larger pixels do yield a higher quality image and less noise. Noise does clean up a bit in the Q2 if you down sample files to an equivalent size. I know I may be splitting hairs (and I’ll take ownership over this), but specifically, are you seeing any difference in how the files render along the lines of… Organic filmic quality vs. more smoothed-over digital look (some observers are noting that Q2 files look more smoothed over/plasticky/digital looking)? Color (Leica’s colors science should be the same for both – although it’s two different sensors) Pop/3-D quality Out of focus/bokeh rendering (same lens, should be similar) Micro contrast Sharpness (Q2 should be sharper without an anti-aliasing filter) Moire (Q should do a better job of reducing moire with filter) Noise (out of the box and without Q2 down-sampling, the classic Q probably has the edge at higher ISOs) – noise does impact IQ. Every Q2 review I read says, “the files look gorgeous.” But so do the Q/Q-P files. Undoubtedly, files from both look beautiful. Sony files can look gorgeous too, but they don't look the same as Leica - so we need to get more granular when asking if the Q and Q2 render the same. If you took the same exact picture with both cameras, would you even notice a difference, or has Leica done such a brilliant job that the Q rendering is exactly the same in both, with the added benefits of more dynamic range, shadow recovery, etc.? Or do they look completely different in your opinion? Better? Worse? The same but larger? Do you prefer how the Q2 files look over the Q? If so, why? Much of the Leica look comes down to the lens and color science – but is there anything you just can’t put your finger on when comparing how the Q files render compared to the Q2?
Leica Q, Q-P or Q2?
analog-digital posted a topic in Leica Q3 / Leica Q2 / Leica QHello everybody I am new to the Leuca Q system. I would like to try one of the 3 types, but I'm not sure which one. What are the pros and cons points? What is the difference between the Q and Q-P? Do not leave me ignorant ...... PS: I own M8's and Mono Typ 246
leica q-p display and evf
quesi posted a topic in Leica Q3 / Leica Q2 / Leica Qjust got my Q-P back from the repair center, they are telling me that everything is fine with my Q-P, but, are your images in camera also looking like this? See the red stuff? somehow its not on all images... please check your Q and tell me.
Steve Huff: Leica Q2 Review
Spiritualized67 posted a topic in Leica Q3 / Leica Q2 / Leica QSteve Huff just posted a review on the Leica Q2 (not sure I can include links, so you can Google it if the below link doesn't work): The Leica Q2 Real World Review and Experience. Worth the $5k? http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2019/03/27/the-leica-q2-real-world-review-and-experience-worth-the-5k/ As much as the Q2 intrigues me, I plan on keeping my Q-P. I can only speak for myself, but I personally feel like there is something unique and different about the rendering on the current 24MP sensor, which is not to take away from some of the gorgeous Q2 imagery I've seen. Steve Huff shares a similar view. To upgrade or not is truly a personal choice. Both models produce beautiful images and both models have their strengths and weaknesses--so I think it is fair to say that either model is not better than the other relatively speaking, they are just different. Find what works for you!
I have a Leica Q-P with firmware 3.1 and an iPhone 7+ with latest IOS updates installed (IOS 12.1.3). First of all I could not get Fotos app working with previous version of the Leica Q firmware, ie. 3.0. After I installed the latest Leica Q firmware 3.1 I could connect and download photos from my camera using Fotos app. However this did not last. After turning off my camera and back on again I could never get the camera connection from Fotos app. The camera wifi network was recognised OK by my iPhone. To test I could connect to WLAN network of the camera and enter the camera's WLAN password under the QR code OK. However when I added the Leica Q camera from Fotos and scan the QR code, after a spinning wheel action, the Fotos app report "Could not connect Check camera Wi-Fi is turned on and try again. I uninstalled and re-installed Fotos app again. This didn't make a difference. I was going to reset the camera as I suspect somehow the firmware stored an ill formed connection state persistently. But I would like to know if any of you experienced this problem. So to sum up, have you ever run into a situation in which the first Fotos connection to a camera with newly installed framework 3.1 worked, but subsequent connections failed after the camera was turned off and back on again?
I am new to the Leica system and I was so excited to find a certified Leica Q-P in my price range. I just received it last night and having been playing around with it this morning. Two things I noticed right away - autofocus seems to be hit or miss and the photos seem noisy even at an ISO 400. In fairness, I started taking shots of my active daughter pretty early this morning before we had a lot of light, so it's possible the autofocus is totally fine and that the low light conditions and auto shutter speed were lending to the lack of focus. My settings were AFs, Face Detection, Spot exposure metering. I did notice that as the room got brighter, the photos were more in focus. As for the noise, it seems that a 400 ISO should be pretty clean? I am shooting raw and editing in lightroom. The photo below is ISO 400, f/2.0, 1/640. I am hoping I am just overthinking this because in the back of my mind I know it's a used camera.
