Leica Q / Leica Q2 MACRO image thread

A couple pics of the adapter I made that screws into the filter threads on the Q. I took a filter holder from B&H. Lucroit 100mm 49-52mm adaptor. I cut it down to fit inside the ring flash.

I think the Canon flash needs the smarts inside Canon cameras to trigger external flashes.  Canon flashes (except for the newer RF versions) communication with pre flash pulses.

Not exactly true. The ring flash will trigger the other flashes just fine when NOT installed on the Q. It somehow is defeated when installed in the Q hot shoe. What's odd to me is the ring flash still fires with the shutter push on the Q. It's strictly manual, but it does fire. Somehow the Q inhibits the pre-flash pulses you were referring to. I wonder if I can tape over a contact to not disable the pre flashes from happening. Does anyone know the pin out electrical signals on the Q hot shoe? I have an oscilloscope. I think I'll take a look and see if I can make any sense of them

It would have looked even nicer if the bee was on those lovely David Austin roses that have been blurred

"Red" the cat, relaxing after some meds, loves sleeping on my desk.  Half snore, half purr.

Borrowed camera to evaluate.  28mm lens, full frame sensor, f2.8, 1/60th, ISO 1600, manual focus in "Macro" mode
I have forgotten how rewarding manual photography can be, especially on a great digital sensor (24MB) with great glass (Summilux)
Thank you Miss Beverly for tormenting me with new found appreciation for long lost skills!

There is a Genie awakening within me... the magic of manual photography.  It is the Q awakening me.

Manual macro focus, f1.7, 1/250, ISO 320, patience and a lovely Rhône white wine.

 

In 1953 my grandfather taught me the few steps to take:  

Compose (horizontal & vertical); Compose (depth with f/stop); Feel the light & expose (shutter speed) for it; focus on a single point.

 

The EVF of the Q does all of this in a clear, logical fashion.  Nowhere does it prove itself better than in close-ups.  With 28mm, we learn to crop the composition.  The Q sensor delivers amazing image quality of water drops in a cropped image!

On a fine walk in Edinburgh's National Botanical Garden I saw this and thought it would be a good subject to give the macro feature a try.

I'm enjoying the macro feature of the Q, easy to use and fine quality images.  Another photo from the Edinburgh National Botanical Garden

A beautiful display of bokeh expertly utilized. This is one of the best examples of it I've seen. I might be tempted to photoshop out that contrail or whatever it is, however.

Too much perfection taking the contrail (indeed that's what it is) out? I don't know, maybe I do it and post de result here...

      Is it possible to couple an iPhone to the SL2 so that it can be easily used to view from the front of a vertical copy setup with the camera facing down (e.g an enlarger or Bencher type arrangement).  I want to be able to copy slides, 35mm/6x6 negatives and prints.  If this can be done are there special cables or connectors that are best to use?

      LEICA APO-MACRO-ELMARIT-TL 60 f/2.8, silver - (#4629438) is in great condition. I rate it cosmetically a (90%) but optically 100%. The focus is smooth, the autofocus and aperture function properly, and the glass is clean and clear with no haze, marks, or fungs, scratches. This lens includes a Leica lens pouch, a Leicalens hood , front & rear caps, and the original instructions & box(full factory set)
      I'm the owner from new. The lens was bought new at the Leica store.
      Payment: paypal or bank tansfer directly to my bank
      shipment: UPS with international tracking - 50EUR
       
      It's not only macro lens. It's excellent for portrait and mid telefoto (fov=90 mm with CL/TL camera)

      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.

      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?
