Recommended Posts

I just updated my Leica Q article with samples of the colors before and after the implementation of the new Camera Raw 9.1.1. that now supports Leica Q.

 

 

The Lightroom profile has just been updated today, so that changes things quite a bit. Also the issue with wrong Kelvin values has been fixed.

Hi, I've got a question: I downloaded the new DNGConverter from Adobe, but what will I have to do to integrate the new profile for the Leica Q in Lightroom 6? The Leica Q is not to be found in Lightroom after the installation.

Lightroom should tell you that an update is available. Once you install the update, you will be on the latest ACR (Adobe Camera RAW) version that includes an Adobe profile for Leica Q.

 

If you go into the Calibration pane on the right side, the popup will have two options "embedded" and "Adobe standard" instead of just one option "embedded". This is how you'll know that the Q is now supported and "in Lightroom"

And what will I have to choose for the Leica Q?

Just goes to show that the software in the computer remains a critical component in the chain. Who knows how good lens/sensor/camera software really is when the result can be so skewed by what's translating it in your computer?

It was a little confusing in LR6.1 what the new profile does, if anything. 

 

I just realized that downloading the 6.1.1 version of Lightroom CC/6 will result in the choice between Adobe Standard and Embedded. 

 

To find Lightroom 6.1.1 from the Adobe site:

Mac

Win

(there is a little innocent looking hidden link in the bottom of this article: 

http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/2015/07/lightroom-6-1-1-is-now-available.html )

 

 

The Adobe Standard is the one to use.

I have just finished downloading lr 6 and done the upgrade to 6.1.1....where do I find the option of embedded or standard ?

Down in the right corner when in Develop mode.

Can we expect a firmware update to fix this in the camera for the JPegs?

 

(I realized the difference compared to my X but as no body complained here in the forum I assigned it to my uncalibrated low-end monitor)

No, the camera raw is the camera profile in Lightroom that "translates" the sensors recordings into colors images. So it doesn't change anything in camera. The camera itself basically has a similar translator that makes a JPG base on the raw sensor recording in the camera. You can change the JPG colors in the camera by choosing for example Medium Low

So I need to hope for a firmware update that comes with a new camera internal profile to improve out of the camera jpegs? At least that would be a possible solution? Sorry if I did not really get it...

      So we have two 28mm Summilux lenses to choose from nowadays, the Summilux M and the Summilux Q.  I am curious:  For those who own and use both (and knowing this crowd, there has to be several who have both)  which image rendering do you prefer, and why?
      Obviously there is way more that factors in to choosing between these two lenses, but my interest lies in the different rendering that the two lenses produce. 
      Thoughts?

      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?
