    THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!

    • For Sale
    • Used

    https://www.vi-vante.com/camerastraps/bengal-unleashed-leather-wrist-strap i bought this at Vi-Vante for my Q2 at full price. After using it one time, I decided it’s not for me. So I am offering it here for less since it is technically used. However, I can assure you it like a new one in every way. Even that new leather smell. I will sell for $70 including shipping within the USA. If you are located in Europe or elsewhere and want it, I will send it along for actual cost. Please payment by Zelle, as I don’t use PayPal.

  4. So wondering how the auto mode decides to come into play or just better to leave on all the time unless using a tripod. Why not leave on all the time? Any thoughts would be appreciated cheers
  5. Hallo und guten Abend! kann mir jemand sagen, wie ich die Geodaten in meine EXIF bekomme? Wird ja in dem Update der Fotoapp als neue Funktion angezeigt - aber egal was ich mache - ich bekomme keine GPS-Daten in die EXIF! Habe die alte App gelöscht (IOS) und die neue heruntergeladen. Wenn ich die App und die Kamera (Q2) einschalte, dann wird WiFi-Verbindung zur Fernbedienung der Kamera hergestellt - was ich ja eigentlich gar nicht möchte. Schalte ich jetzt mit der Kamera die WiFi-Verbindung aus, dann kommen keine GSP-Daten - ich hab schon alles versucht! Was mache ich falsch?? Danke für Eure Hilfe! Viele Grüße Sonja
  6. Hi, I want to to know how good are the 50mm crop of the Q2 because I like that kind of prospective... A CL with the TL 35 Summilux 1.4 lens (so 50mm equivalent as is an APSC) is equal or better? Thanks to all who can help me
  7. Back in September, I was able to sail aboard the USS CONSTITUTION, the world's oldest commissioned naval warship afloat. The HMS VICTORY, Lord Nelson's flagship at Trafalgar, has actually been commissioned longer, but sadly she is in dry dock and no longer afloat. This series comprises my selects while using the Q2 as a point-and-shoot for that once-in-a-lifetime experience...
  8. Hallo zusammen, Hat jemand schon Erfahrung mit dem Ewoop-Thumbs up für die Q2? https://www.amazon.de/EWOOP-Daumengriff-bessere-Balance-Griffigkeit/dp/B07QSX9W9T/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?__mk_de_DE=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&crid=1NMF4WLFKB4ZZ&keywords=ewoop+leica+q2&qid=1560247652&s=gateway&sprefix=ewoop%2Caps%2C152&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1 Der Ewoop für die Q1 hat mit besser gefallen als der von Match Technical, da er billiger war und nicht so schnell die schwarze Farbe verloren hat. Ich habe hier im Forum ja schon mal ausführlich über das Problem berichtet. Schon mal Danke im Voraus für die Rückmeldungen.
  9. Just wondering what the thinking is re this topic.

  11. Leica Fotos Update im Apple App Store mit Hinweis "verfügbar ab 03.April 2019" Version 1.1.2
  12. 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?
  13. Here is a macro image of my first camera purchased at the age of 13. I still have it in my collection. Thought it would be fun to have a topic just for Macro with the Q2.
  14. Is the buffer on the Q2 the problem some reviewers are making it out to be? Some have said you can out run it after 8 raw images, not even shooting in continuous mode?
  15. For anyone interested, I both splurged and gambled by ordering the Thorsten Overgaard Q lens hood for my Q2... It fits! (I wasn't sure because of the slightly bigger lens due to the weather-proofing, and I couldn't find where anyone else had already verified compatibility.) I didn't want to have to remove the native Q2 hood to put on/take off a polarizer when needed, plus the native hood makes dialing in a circular polarizer difficult--thus the Overgaard hood. Comes in three colors--black, silver, or red--and arrived from China in just a few days. So, in case any of you were thinking about ordering one, no need to fear incompatibility!
  16. Steve 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!
  17. Hi Am new to Q2 and I am confused with the term focus range (assuming it refers to shutter speed) under the ELECTRONIC SHUTTER selection in page 91 of the English instruction manual (Image attached). The 3 selections are as follow :- When Off is selected ---- Only the mechanical shutter is used. Focus range 120 s to 1⁄2000 s. When Always On is selected ---- Only the electronic shutter function is used. Focus range 1⁄2500 s to 1⁄40000 s. When Extended is selected ---- You can add in the electronic shutter functions if you need faster shutter speeds than can be achieved with the mechanical shutter. Focus range 120 s to 1⁄2000 s + 1⁄2500 s to 1⁄40000 s. The first selection is clear, there will be no electronic shutter and you are limited to maximum speed of 1⁄2000 s. For the second selection, does it means that electronic shutter will be used only from 1⁄2500 s to 1⁄40000 s and if yes, is that not already the default for Q2 ? If I select this and use 1⁄500 s to take a picture, will Q2 use mechanical or electronic shutter since the manual says ONLY THE ELECTRONIC FUNCTION IS USED? For the third selection, does it means that electronic shutter will be used, regardless of shutter speed? After googling this topic, the closest I can get to an answer is from https://www.reddotforum.com/content/2017/05/leica-sl-firmware-3-0-released-major-updates/ where it document the the new firmware update for the SL (Typ 601): Version 3.0. where one of the the update was to include ALWAYS ON in electronic shutter setting. It goes to say that the best part of version 3.0 is that you can set “Always On” which will activate the electronic shutter function for a much wider range of shutter speeds for completely silent shooting and the range available will depends on your ISO setting. Hope the experts here can enlighten me on this subject. Thank you
  18. Hi, I have a question to all those who use the Q2 alongside with their Sony camera: How far can you go with those Q2 RAW files? [Taking the photos shakefree, deliberately underexpose the photos, increasing the exposure in post-processing etc. just to get the shot.] I would like to read your input in that regard. I own the Sony RX100V (RX100 MK5) & A7RIII (A7R MK3) with a bunch of Sony GM (85mm f/1.4), Sony Zeiss (35mm f/2.8 & 55mm f/1.8), Zeiss (Batis 85mm, Loxia 25mm, Loxia 50mm, Loxia 85mm) and adapted Contax Zeiss (28mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4, 50mm f/1.7, 85mm f/2.8, 135mm f/2.8) lenses. Currently I love using the Zeiss Loxia lenses and so far I like the Q2's lens rendering. I would like to replace most of those lenses and the RX100V, keep the Loxia & 85mm GM lenses and purchase the Q2. The intention is to simplify my gear and at least have only a few autofocus lenses in my repertoire. The 85mm GM can't go because of portrait photography where autofocus is critical (Sony Eye-AF huray!). For fun projects I like using the Loxia 85mm (that glas is ridiculous sharp and contrasty!). The Q2's purpose is for covering the the focal length 28mm[, 35mm and 50mm] with its autofocus lens. I often see myself using my Sony cameras (I had the A6000 & A7II [A7 MK2] before) on my travels in low light situations (www.instagram.com/ryan.lam.888) and I don't carry a full sized tripod with me. Sometimes I have a tabletop tripod and a clamp with me traveling to the destination just in case I need them. However after one or two outings I am able to evaluate whether or not I need them. Oftentimes many locations don't allow you to deploy a tripod on-location (Hello London & Italy! xD ). It is amazing how much I can get out of those Sony RAW files without much noise and banding issues. Can anyone provide RAW files from a Q2 and a Sony camera both shot at the same location with the same low light condition? Thank you!
  19. Mit der Q2 bin ich wirklich glücklich. Ich bin eher der "Weitwinkler" und nutze auch die große Blendenöffnung, um ein gewisses Freistellungspotential zu haben. Auch die Crop- Möglichkeit der 47 Mpx ist natürlich gut nutzbar. ABER: Gerade das Croppen verführt (mich zumindest) gelegentlich dazu, nicht mehr so sorgfältig ein Bild zu komponieren. Irgendetwas Gescheites wird sich doch aus dem Foto schon herausschneiden lassen... Das Gegenteil einer Q2 ist nach meiner Einschätzung eine analoge M: Wegen der geringen Anzahl an Aufnahmen eines Films gehe ich viel sorgfältiger an eine Komposition heran, bin entschleunigter, wachsamer und "knipse" weniger. Ein Bild muss "sitzen". Wie empfindet Ihr das?
  20. Just wondering what you all use for storage capacity for your SL2s? I have mostly 32GB cards that I use for my CL, but just picked up two 64GB UHS II 300MB/sec cards. I might want to pick-up a couple more. Should I get 64GB or 128GB? I shoot in full res DNG+JPEG and backup from one card to the next, so, storage-wise, in actuality, I'm only using one card. Thanks, Brad
  21. Can anyone please advise how to get rid of continuous screen flashes every time I attach a Profoto Flash Gun or Flash Trigger. Histogram and Clipping are both off. Thanks
  22. While we suffer an interminable wait for the (alleged soon to be) M10 Monochrom, I have to ask: Why not a Q2 Monochrom?? Think of the possibilities that a full frame, 47 MP, ISO 50,000 Monochrom with a 28mm f/1.7 lens and a silent leaf shutter would have to offer! To the gents in Wetzlar, I have to ask: Are you listening? To everyone else, I ask: What are your thoughts on a Q2 Monochrom?
  23. Hey Guys! I’m new to this forum since I got my Q2 today :) I imported DNGs to Capture One 20 and the colors are completely off - way way over saturated and shifting towards magenta right after import with no adjustments applied. In Lightroom the colors I see represent what I see in camera. What’s the reason for that? I read that capture one 20 deals with native DNGs just fine. Is there a fix for it? A setting I’m not seeing etc? thanks :)
  24. Hello, ladies and gents - here is a question for those who shoot with the Q2. I need to get a flash for my Q2, preferably a Metz unit as they are priced more favorably than the Leica flash units. Is there a Metz equivalent of Leica's SF60 or SF40 flash? The Metz mecablitz 52 AF-1 looks like it could be a good choice. The 52 AF-1 is supposed to be compatible with Panasonic/Leica Four Thirds TTL, according to the description on a well known camera retailer's website. It seems odd that this flash would be compatible with Leica 4/3rds cameras but there is no mention of it being compatible with Leica's full frame cameras such as the Q2, M240 or M10. Would that be due to the difference in sensor size between 4/3rds and full frame? I have used off camera flash (a Nikon unit) a fair amount in the past with my M-P 240 by using a wireless flash trigger set. This is ungainly though when you are holding the flash in one hand and the camera in the other and trying to shoot. I need fill flash for high contrast lighting situations so on camera flash would greatly streamline using flash with my Q2. So my question boils down to this: Is the Metz mecablitz 52 AF-1 compatible with the Q2? Or is there another flash unit that could be used on camera with the Q2?
  25. I have been thinking of acquiring a Q2 for a while and am about 90% ready to make that commitment. I see the Q2 as an addition to my Leica system, which at present includes an M4-P, M-P 240 and a handful of lenses. I am pretty well content with my M-P 240 but it does have a couple of shortcomings - shutter noise and not so great ISO range. For print making, I have found that I can get away with somewhere between ISO 800-1600 before noise becomes a problem, depending on a number of variables other than just ISO. The Q2 seems to resolve those two issues, with weather sealing, autofocus, f/1.7 and a big honking sensor thrown in to sweeten the deal. As far as the focal length that some complain about being "stuck with" on the Q2, that is not really a concern to me. Before I made the jump to digital when I got my M240 back in 2013, I had shot with my film MP and 28 Summicron ASPH extensively. The 28 is an excellent all-around focal length IMHO. It is sort of like the 35mm focal length, but requires a bit more of the photographer in terms of thinking, discipline and not being afraid to get close to your subjects; it is also an excellent focal length for travel, documentary and landscape work IMHO. I learned to deal with these issues (thinking, discipline, getting closer to my subjects) when shooting with my MP and 28 'cron, so I won't feel "stuck" or short changed by having only the 28mm focal length lens on the Q2. In thinking about the Q2, this morning I had the thought that absence of the coupled rangefinder mechanism notwithstanding, the Q2 is somewhat of an autofocus counterpart of the M10 in the Leica lineup as a whole. There is no equal to the flagship M10-P in the Leica product lineup (though some of the other digital M cameras come close), but the Q2 seems to have earned its place next to the M-10-P. In looking at my Leica kit as a whole, I can see the Q2 as being an able backup camera to my M-P 240 and an alternative to it as my daily carry camera. I think the Q2 will fulfill those roles with aplomb. I am wondering how the Q2 has fit in to the scheme of things for others who shoot with it and digital M cameras, and if the Q2 has served its purpose well in your photographic endeavors. Also: Is it fairly accurate to think of the Q2 as somewhat of an autofocus counterpart of the M-P 240 or M10-P? Thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts and impressions. 😎
