New Camera Raw for Leica Q as of July 29 - Updated article at overgaard.dk

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...

      I purchased a Q end of last year, liked it so much that I sold my Nikon DSLR, Lumix FZ-2500 and Fuji XE-T3. I then purchased the CL with the 18-56mm lens a few months later. Now with adapters to use my Rokinon wide-angles, and 7 Artisan lenses I find myself using the Leica CL way more than the Q.  There's no doubt that the IQ of photos from the Q, a full-frame camera, are better than the Leica CL, t's a fantastic camera and lens with macro capability.. But I'm thinking of selling it add more lenses for the CL (or at least pay it off 😎).   Anyone else face this situation?    BTW, with all that's going on in the world at this time, I'm fully aware that this is no big deal, but it keeps my mind off the other cataclysmic issues  we're experiencing.  All opinions welcome, any recommendation for lenses?...thanks.  I am currently waiting for arrival of the TTArtisan 35mm F1.4 lens to ship.  Be Well everyone.

      Whenever I use the in camera filters they don't stay on when I upload the RAW to Lightroom. The preview of the image shows it with the ffilter but when I click on it it goes back to normal where there is no filter applied. Please help.

      RESERVIERT Verkaufe gebrauchte Edel-Kompaktkamera Leica Q (Typ 116). Die Kamera hat kaum Gebrauchsspuren. Das Display und das Objektiv sind frei von Kratzern. Sie diente mir als Zweitkamera, kam aber selten zum Einsatz, da ich doch lieber mit meiner SL fotografiere. Zwei original Leica-Akkus sind dabei, sowie ein neuer Tragegurt, ein Ladegerät, die Geli mit dem Metalldeckel der minimale Gebrauchsspuren aufweist. Dies ist ein Privatverkauf- I send only within EU.

      Hi,
      I have both a Leica Q and a D-Lux 7 and I use Lightroom to edit my pics. I have quite a bit of purchased presets as well.
      With the Q, no issue at all.
      With the D-Lux, even though my picture are taken in colour and imported in RAW format, some of the presets think the picture is black and white and show me options only in B&W. I have to manually go to the Colour option and click on it to see what the reworked photo looks in colour.
      Anyone with the same issue ? Thanks.

      Is it possible to set up the Leica Q to be used as a webcam for Zoom and other video conferencing meetings? If so, any suggestions on setting it up?
