    Hallo zusammen, Ich würde mich gerne von meiner Leica Q trennen. Ich bin in der glücklichen Lage, dass ich die Leica M6 meiner Mutter übernehmen darf. Bevor die Q rumliegt, möchte ich sie lieber abgeben. Ich habe die Q im Dezember 2017 gekauft und nur unregelmäßig benutzt. Die Q mit einem neutralen UV Filter, einem zweitem Original-Leica Akku, und der im Hintergrund zu sehenden Tasche. Die Q hat zwei kleine Schrammen (eine an der Sonnenblende und eine an der unteren Seite), ist aber einwandfrei funktional. Sie wurde nicht in sandigem oder staubigem Umfeld benutzt, ich habe keine Haustiere und rauche nicht. Ich habe noch detaillierte Aufnahmen der ganzen Kamera, die ich bei Interesse gerne bereitstelle. Box und Rechnung liefere ich mit. Der versicherte Versand kommt zum Kaufpreis hinzu. Ich lasse die Kamera gerne bei meinem lokalen Fachhändler anschauen und der Käufer kann dann dort anrufen und die Angaben verifizieren lassen. Man kann mir direkt schreiben: leicaqverkauf AT posteo PUNKT de

  2. Hi there, I brought myself finally a Leica Q last week. Its a really nice camera, but I have one issue I dont know if its a bug or a settings problem: If I half press the release button, the camera is focusing. I hold the button half pressed down until my subject is ready for the picture. If I press the button fully down (without releasing it), I assume the camera is taking the picure, but what it does is its focusing again and the taking the picture. I have set the mode switch to "S" and AF Mode to "1 point". Setting the Zoom button to "AEL/AFL" does not work either. Pressing or holding the button does nothing! With settings to Zoom the button works as expected. A reset of the camera settings did not help. Am I doing something wrong? Kind regards, Sebastian
  3. Hi everybody! I've a big doubt. Leica Q or Leica CL?? I do predominantly street photography and travel reportage. Full frame sensor or apsc sensor with the possibility to change lenses? I come from canon system (6d with a lot of lenses). I'm tired to carry on my photographic bag (6/7 kilos of stuff). Thanks. Marco Bucci https://www.marcobuccifotografia.com/ 23/5000

  5. Hallo zusammen, nachdem meine Q mich auf meine erste Reise begleitet hat, hab ich meine Erfahrungen mal in einem Artikel zusammen gefasst. Vielleicht hat ja jemand Interesse an ein paar Eindrücken aus dem schönen Japan . Feedback immer gern! http://ultraweit-verwinkelt.de/de/mit-der-leica-q-kyushu/ Hier eine Vorschau:
  6. I have been editing some images from a recent trip and discovered that my raw files seem weirdly damaged but the Jpegs seem fine. I have attached screen shots of the same image files both dng and jpeg. They are from different SD cards which haven't been formatted since i downloaded them. I also copied them straight over from a relatively new card reader and not through any software It has occurred on a lot of files but not all of them, or maybe its not as noticeable on some files. The images are taken on different ISO's from 100 - 2000 and also in both low light and daylight, i haven't added the daylight examples as its not as noticeable so just adding the better examples. I'm using photomechanic to view them and these are just a portion of the image are these recoverable / ruined..? does anyone know what has happened..?

  8. The arriving of the bride at the church is probably one of the most anticipated moments for a bridegroom in his wedding day. Now let me dedicate this shot to those forum members who already lived such a moment but also to those of you who have not but are considering the plunge;-) Leica Q.
  9. Hello, The Q made its first journey with me and went to Kyushu, Japan. Reason enough to write an article about my experiences with the camera and show some impressions. I hope you like it, feedback is always highly appreciated: http://ultraweit-verwinkelt.de/using-leica-q-kyushu/
  10. I'm finally done with my review, It's been so hard to make a selection of pictures. What you'll see in the link bellow is Cuba as i managed to discovered it through the lens of my camera "Leica Q" Hope you'll enjoy the it. all feedbacks and comments are gonna be welcome as usual. http://rodriguezahr.blogspot.co.uk/2016/05/cuba-defrosting-world.html www.rodriguezahr.com
  11. Hi. Just thought I would share this on screen protectors for the Q. I don't know about you but I have never been happy with Leica one. It's hard to get installed, shows mares easily and really effects the clarity of the screen. In searching for something better, I came across the Phantom Glass ones. Only one problem, they didn't list one for the Q. So with the help of the "camerasize.com" web site I compared the screen sizes of all the cameras Phantom Glass did have glass protectors for against the Q and found one that appeared to be the right size. It's the one of the Fujifilm X-100t. Not being sure, I attempted to contact Phantom Glass with an inquiry as to the actual size but never heard back. I decided to take a shot and ordered the Fujifirm X-100t glass screen protector. I'm happy to say the it fits great, just a millimeter smaller in each direction. It's crystal clear and the touch screen works fine. If you were like Me, you might want to check out the Phantom Glass screen protectors. I've included a picture of the Q with the protector install, forgive the glare, that was the best shot I got showing how the protector fits.
  12. The actual Leica Q is one big success for the Leica Company. But I think that the future Leica QV(ario) will be the next success step . Characteristics: More or less same body with a fixed 24-90 mm ( less bigger then the actual Leica SL 24-90 mm for the Leica SL) Dream or future reality! Need Optical Ingenieurs to discuss this topic. mfo
  13. Hi community, I am quite new to the Leica Q and I expect the following to be a beginner's question. But, it is worrying me or at least I want to ensure that the phenomenon is not the cause of a technical issue. I am using the Leica Q in program automatic (aperture and time), multi-field metering and center-weighted metering. Auto focus is set to "single" mode, not continuous! (AF-S) My expectation was that whenever I press the shutter halfway through, the green rectangles indicate what is going to be in focus. Pressing it completely through should take the shot immediately. This works in 95% of the cases but sometimes it seems that the lens has to refocus when pressing the shutter completely through which causes a delay of 1-2 seconds! This is quite confusing as the moment was gone in those cases. Is this a technical issue or a normal behavior? I am not quite sure whether this happened with my SLR as well when I used in in auto mode! Thanks a lot for the help in advance! Cheers, Julian
  14. Hi, habe eine wahrscheinliche Anfaengerfrage zur Leica Q und dessen Autofokus. Szenario: Programmautomatik (Blende und Zeit) Mehrfeldmessung Mittenbetont Normalerweise funktioniert der Autofokus problemlos. Ich druecke den Ausloeser halb durch, die gruenen Quadrate zeigen die Fokuspunkte an. Durchdruecken macht direkt ohne Verzoegerung das foto. Ab und zu kommt es jedoch vor, dass die Kamera nachfokussiert (scheint so) und es somit zu einer verzoegerung von 1-2 Sekunden kommt. Nahm an, dass sobald der Ausloeser halb durchgedrueckt wurde, das Bild bei kompletten durchdruecken so gemacht wird, ohne Verzoegerung! Ist das ein normales Verhalten? Meine bei meiner Spiegelreflex war das damals nicht. Moechte nur sicherstellen dass das kein technischer Fehler ist. Danke im Voraus. Beste Gruesse Julian
  15. After a couple of weeks of playing and learning the camera I start to getting used to the Appenture or Shutter priority ... And this works really well for me. Is the next logical step mastering Manual Mode? What is the best practice? When do you use it? on what occasion? What is your experience?
  16. In summer the sun is vanishing late even in our garden facing the north. The sun is high enough to give our garden a warm glow.even in the evening. Leica Q
  17. Hi all, My yearly subscription to Lightroom is ending and I want to switch to Capture One. I'm also anticipating a Leica Q purchase for this summer. However I cannot find if C1 supports the crop modes of the Leica Q, i.e if the DNGs get automatically cropped to the selected modes, like Lightroom. Does anybody use C1 ? How does it work ? In addition how do you find C1 color rendition of this specific camera ? You can post some examples. Thanks! Romain

  21. Hello there, I'm currently on the edge of finally have enough savings to be able to purchase my always dream camera, the Leica. I'm really not a rich person. I work and save really hard to be able to purchase my first. I understand that there are some cheaper alternatives from sony and I've tried it with sony A7 + voigtlander 50mm 1.5 for 6 months but I just don't find it as enjoyable as when I tried the M or Q (was sooo close to buy it when I tried it first time at the store). Shooting experience is really basic, menus are straightforward, compared to a7. Really, not that the sony is bad (amazing iq but it is the simplicity, user experience, and straightforwardness of leica is really on the different level. There is this guy who's willing to let go of his Q, used for 10 months + extra 2 spare batteries for us$3500. The price of Q, even though it’s Leica’s latest most affordable full frame camera, is still more expensive relatively compared to other mirrorless cameras (sony, etc). Therefore if I’m really gonna buy it I’d like to ask you some question: 1. If I’m gonna be using the camera for around 5 years or more (with this price, really not looking forward to use it for short time only), will it be safe to take the Q? My consideration is because Q is full digital camera with evf, hence in terms of reliability, the sensor will work significantly more time compared to rangefinders that focus only with optical viewfinders. 2. What are the common technical problems that Q users might find in short and long term? We are not talking about cases like dropping the cameras but technical problems like AF suddenly stop working at my 3rd year using the camera (therefore might lead to expensive repairs). 3. With M cameras, it’s safe to say that annualy we need to have it serviced/calibrated/etc to ensure it’s working perfectly. With Leica Q will there be a same case of projected annual expenses? 4. With replacable lens systems, if our camera breaks, for the worst we can still keep our lens and replace only the body, but Q is a single package. If the lens breaks, you cannot use your camera. If your camera breaks, your lens is as good as nothing too. Therefore, I’d like to know how long is the normal expected hardware lifetime usage for Leica Q? 5. Currently I've finished selling all of my canon gears, leaving only 1 fuji x100 and wide converter. I had a trip to Nepal only bringing the x100 so 28mm is not unusual. (http://www.marioputra.com/kathmandu) 6. For now, my alternative to the Q (incase you guys think that I shouldn't pull the Q trigger) is a7r ii or a7 ii + FE 35mm f/2.8 7. Again, I want a leica not chasing for the society status but for the shooting experience (full frame, enjoyable manual focus, compact, high iso, etc). 100% gonna black tape the red dot to hide it anyway. Thank your for your time and really expect some input from you guys before I'm falling deeper into the red dot world
  22. Not received my Q yet, but have (perhaps stupidly) already picked up my required accessories, including an extra two official Leica BP DC12 batteries. I was wondering if anyone who already had a Q were already using a third party battery? I was considering from a reputable brand like Duracell (the DRPBLC12). I'm not very concerned about the lower capacity (950 mAh vs 1200), but I am concerned about a third party battery not showing how much power is left via the LCD, which I think is par for the course nowadays. Thoughts or experiences?
  23. I'm pleased I took along the Leica Q to yesterday's pre-wedding shoot. Very strong backlight, but the EVF is amazing and allowed me to see exactly what I was getting.

  25. Missing the Decisive Moment 1932, Paris, near the Gare Saint-Lazare the great Henri Cariter Bresson approaches a flooded construction site enclosed by an iron fence. He quickly realizes the potential of the situation and as a man dressed in black leaps over the ladder lying on the ground trying to avoid getting his feet wet, he presses the shutter just a fraction of a second before the heel of the man’s right shoe hits the water. He just made what was arguably going to be his most iconic street photograph ever. If, instead of using one of his beloved mechanical Leicas, he had used a Leica Q, looking though its fantastic EVF, he would immediately have avoided the parallax issue that caused him to include a part of the fence through which he was photographing and which forced him to apply a slight crop. The last glimpse he would see in the viewfinder was in fact the much desired decisive moment, but what he would find when hitting the PLAY button would be a picture with a big splash of the man landing in the puddle of water. Not because his reflexes were not quick enough, not because of any delay in the class-leading shutter of the “Q”, but because of a more serious quirk of the Leica Q which under certain circumstances makes it almost useless as a tool for capturing the “decisive moment”. It turns out that under certain circumstances the delay with which the real world is presented through the EVF (or the LCD on the back of the camera) makes it almost impossible to catch the right moment. By the time you see something happening in the viewfinder the world has moved on and what you get in the final picture is not what you had expected. Try this: set your camera for a typical daylight street scene on a sunny day using the “sunny sixteen” method (F16, Shutter = 1/ISO), so for example F16, 1/500th, ISO 500. Now watch someone walking while half-pressing the shutter and then press through completely just as the subjects front foot is just about to hit the ground (as in HCB’s picture). What you get is a rather unpleasant front leg with a bent knee. If you repeat the exercise looking at your subject directly (ie, not through the viewfinder) you should be able to get exactly the moment you want. To be more explicit, and in order for anybody to easily repeat the experiment, I’ve used a metronome app running on an iPAD as a continuously moving subject. In the following video I’ve set the speed of the metronome to 248 bpm running on an iPad set at maximum luminosity. The Leica Q is set to F16, 1/125th, ISO 50000 and the rear LCD screen and the iPad are recorded with an iPhone 6. I apologize for the quality of the video, but I think it is absolutely clear that when the shutter is half-pressed (which closes down the diaphragm) the delay becomes immediately visible. Also notice that if the shutter is not half-pressed there is no delay. In theory, therefore, it would be possible to follow the action without half-pressing and then doing a full press at the right time, but often you want to half-press to make sure all of the normal chores of autofocus, metering etc. are taken care of so as not to waste further time. The problem seems to be intimately related to the F-stop, the higher the F the worse. At F below 4-5.6 it is hardly noticeable. https://youtu.be/EPTyJrfnkgs In this second video I’m showing a Fuji X100T in the same conditions and as you can see there is no noticeable delay. Also the Fuji X-T1 is without delay in the same conditions, which leads me to believe the problem to be specific to the “Q”. https://youtu.be/8GoNQXW0Ke0 I hope the design engineers of Leica get a chance to read this post and perhaps to repeat these experiments for themselves in the hope that they may come up with a solution in a future firmware update. On a side note I wonder if the new SL has the same problems. Since it is marketed as an action camera I think it would be a real deal breaker if it did. Aside from the problem described I would like to express my full appreciation of the camera. For reportage/street photography with its excellent intuitive handling, super silent shutter, unquestionable image quality, buttery smooth manual focus, lightning fast autofocus and general unobtrusiveness the Leica Q is really hard to beat.
