I noticed this on Amazon and wondered if anyone has tried it for the Q yet. I have heard great things about the J.B. Designs grips for other cameras and think this looks pretty nice while allowing access to the battery compartment. Let me know your thoughts, always great to learn from others experience!

Alpa build wooden grips for their (high end) cameras (https://www.alpa.ch/en/section/products/) which look really beautifully made (and are obviously a real precision product). The ones linked to are not up to Alpa's standards of design as far as I can see and I can't see that they offer anything better than the Leica built grips. Now if Alpa was to offer something it might be worth looking at.....

I recently purchased the grip and must say that it is very nice. It looks good (to me, in the obvious minority), adds a nice grip to the camera, protects the bottom quite well and allows me to access the bottom compartment without removing the case. It also hold the camera upright when set down which is a plus.

 

I like the durability of well-crafted wood, and feel confident that the grip will hold up well over time while protecting the Q. If anyone wants pictures with the camera let me know and I will post them here.

      Hello all.
      My Leica Q of two years all of the sudden shows a pretty severe Purple / Greenish tint to everything through the back LCD, but not in the EVF or the actual photo files. The issue popped up out of nowhere after a flight, and I've done everything I can on my end to fix it but nothing has worked. Anyone else have a similar experience? Really trying to avoid sending this thing in for however much that will cost to fix. Firmware is up to date. The photos attached are the difference between the back LCD and the EVF (Which has normal color). Apologies for the bunk iPhone photos but at least you can see the difference in color.

      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.

      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?
