Leica Q question - internal sound (not OIS)

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hi there,

 

I've noticed recently that when ON, Q makes this constant noise - sort of like hard-drive working/internal electonics buzzing... not the OIS element in lens when the camera is OFF, nor the clicky aparture sound). It's an electronic sound, just like a computer or other larger device emites... especialy noticable when I put my ear to the lens or LCD... but can be heard even from some distance, when the room is quiet...

 

Is this normal? Should I worry?

thanks

Hi,

 

I'm sorry tot tell that, but it's not normal. I got my Q six months ago and never had this problem. No noise at all if we except the OIS when the camera is OFF.

When did you get your camera ? Do you use the updated firmware ? Does it happen all the time ?

Maybe you could try to re-install the 2.0.

I've to make a correction : If you are in a very quiet room and if you stick your ear to the camera's body, there is a slight noise. On my camera that's really subliminal.

Yep, I agree but I do have to put my ear right up to the camera - just never heard it before since I am not in the habit of photographing with my ear (rather than eye) up to the camera.

Reviving this thread for the Q2.

I just got the Q2 and hearing the noise.   I first noticed in a quiet room, with the camera on a table.  Up to my ear it sounds like a whirring hard drive 

Anyone else?

I noticed it too.  I initially thought something was loose in the camera but realized it was probably OIS.  Pics looks fine.

This might change, when Leica incorporates a phone into the Q8.

After all, we have phone cameras, so why not camera phones?

      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!
      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 : (
