Leica Q - the image thread

Recommended Posts

I was listening to some music and thought I'd test the ISO performance as my audio as it is in low light or complete darkness. It is lit directly from above with three small spot lights, no other light sources, the shadow line is quite clear and there is little reflected light.

 

The auto setting was ISO 1250     f/1.7   1/60

I then reset to            ISO 12500   f/5.0   1/60

 

I pulled out the shadows by +66 (in Lightroom 6) on both images 

 

I'm reasonably impressed, but the last image with noise reduction loses all the detail in the shadows.

 

The original image:

 
Crop of original at ISO 1250

 
Reset to ISO 12500
 
Reset to ISO 12500 with Noise reduction luminance set to 75

A couple more from London Pride, taken within a few seconds of each other. The first one was intended to reflect the fact that there were simply hundreds of thousands of people out on the streets being happy and comfortable in their diversity, it was quite something. I hadn't noticed the lady on the left. 

 

Next week there is a neo-nazi demonstration in Golders Green, a Jewish neighbourhood a mile or so from where I live in London, on the Sabbath. The local MP has tried and failed to stop it. That'll be fun.

I love all of the pics!  I can't tell if I really want a Q, or if I just need more time to go out and take pictures. I've been shooting a 50/summilux + monochrom for over a year now. After reading Thorsten's review, I'm thinking that a year @ 28mm might be good to shift the way in which I see the world.

Curious - macro mode utilized for the depth of field?  What was your distance to the subject?

Hi Paul,

 

yes that was made with the macro function and the distance was about 0.3meter
