Leica Q / Leica Q2 MACRO image thread

What about having a separate image thread just for macro pictures?

Hope this will be followed, we can share our macro takes but also our questions, doubts, experiences...

This was a real challenge with the 28 mm of the Q. Much easier with a 100mm macro and my Canon 5D3. It is obviously highly cropped. I'll have to try again someday with the fast shutter instead of with a flash. SF-40.

Splashart with the Q? I wouldn't have thought...I don't think the 28mm is appropriate. I had fun trying a whole afternoon but with my D800 and a 105mm macro...and the results were astonishing. Well, I am curious to see what you can get with a new try.

Wouldn't try either the fly's eye without a macro 105 and the tubes...

But there is a lot of things we can do on macro mode with the Q, and it would be fun to share it here.

Thanks Infiniumguy, have a nice week,

Isabel

I wouldn't think anyone would buy a Q just so they could pursue macro photography, but I do like that it has the feature, something different with the 28.  My first day which wasn't long ago I went in my backyard (that's American for "garden") in the late afternoon and took a bunch of shots including a few with the macro.  

 

Here's a couple.  This one is a leaf on our fig tree, and while it looks frontlit, the light is actually coming through the leaf.

Effectively nobody would buy a Q for macro, but I am surprised with what we can achieve with it...

Check out Leslie Gleim of Honolulu for Leica Q (and XV) macro photography. This lady is leading the way for macro work with this new camera.

      Hi there,
      I'm new here, from Chile, and need some advice:
      I have seen a LEICA bellows (16 880) on the Website of a danish photographer, called Thorsten von Overgaard.
      I'd like to buy one and went on eBay, but these bellows seem to be sold out, perhaps because of the recommendation on that website (scroll down):
      https://www.overgaard.dk/Leica-M-Type-240-aka-Leica-M10-digital-rangefinder-camera-page-33-The-Leica-R-Lenses-on-Leica-M240-Catwalk.html
      I wouldn't want to put a blue NOVOFLEX bellows on my LEICA camera, so a new one doesn't do the trick for me.
      I'm a bit old-fashioned and so for my esthetics a bellows has to be black . . .
      Would somebody of you out there know, where I could possibly buy a 16880 bellows in MINT conditions?
      Or which one would be a good alternative to that 16880?
      What I need that bellows for is to be able to shoot photos in my house, while being confined through that epidemia.
      I'd take similar photographs as this Overgaard chap, you can look at his at the website (see link above).
      Very much looking forward to your posts,
      Peter

      Hi!
      I recently purchased a used Leica Q manufactured early 2018. 
      When I try shooting in night, both "low iso + long exposure", and "high iso + short exposure" captured in DNG file shows annoying banding, and even some unwanted color points, like the images shown below.
      Is this a native camera issue? Or this camera sensor is defected : (
