Leica Q / Leica Q2 MACRO image thread

Recommended Posts

Lucena, thank you for starting this thread, for me at least it's an impetus to learn more about using the Q for "small stuff". 

Infiniumguy, what a terrific lighter - dangerous too - as Bond, James Bond always was.  Another of mine here.

Trying some flower macro photography. I love this camera. So versatile!

 

The flower is a Purple Shamrock. At least that's what my wife tells me it is. :-)

Sorry ! Not flowers, but leaves of Oxalis triangular !

I stand corrected. Thank you. Still, it was fun for me to photograph leaves.

Having fun with macro photography. Finally found a flower on our Spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum). I looked it up before being embarrassed about not knowing the scientific name. :-)

 

I have run into something a little weird with the Q. It seems to stop focusing in macro mode after using it for a couple minutes. I tried manual and auto focus no different. It will not longer focus close in. Then I switched back to non-macro mode and it appears to focus again and close. Like in macro mode. I think something is getting confused, maybe me, about when it's in macro mode. I'll investigate further and let you know. I was using it in a vertical mode a lot, but I could not establish that this affected the issue. Confused, but still having a lot of fun.

Very, very nice. What us the close-up filter you are referring to? I've never heard of it. My bad.

Very impressive image quality!  I hope Erwin-Robert will give some info. When using the close up filter set which strength(s) did you use? Was the Q in regular or macro mode? What aperture and shutter? A tripod, I assume? The depth of field is so high did you use some post processing with focus stacking or is this just shot with a small aperture? What other post processing did you do?

Waiting for this info, me too...

      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.

      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?

      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
