Q2 4k video bit rate

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the 4k recording bit rate? I’m hoping it’s over 100mbps. Can’t find anything in the specs.... thx!

Also just note, theres no manual exposure control in video mode. 

What do you mean with this? I assume you can control aperture, and/or ISO?

You will see exposure shifts and the aperture will jump all over the place regardless of what f stop you set on the lens.

This is terrible! I saw the rant about no manual control in video on the luminous landscape Q2 review but didn't assume they went so far as Auto-Aperture. That's insane.

It's especially disappointing since they did implement DCI 4K on Q2 and from what I've seen so far the image quality is actually really nice.

Here's hoping that a firmware upgrade will allow at the very least manual aperture & shutter speed control.

How do you want to do shutter speed control... when you have a fixed FPS/Hz. 
 

You can't shoot at 1/45 if you want 60fps... etc. shutter speed should always be exactly you FPS. 

The things you don want to be able to control however are aperture and ISO.

You are mistaken. In film/video shutter speed should actually be double your frame rate in order to follow 180 shutter angle rule ( How Shutter Speed Affects Video ).

You can absolutely go higher or lower than your FPS depending on what motion cadence you desire but it's always important to stay within shutter angle rules.

The problem with Q2's video mode is that shutter speed jumps all over the place as if it were in S/TV priority mode with of course no regard to shutter angle rules.

This creates chaotic motion cadence. If you add to that variable auto-aperture & auto-ISO, video mode on Q2 basically becomes unusable for serious work.

Unfortunately you are correct, as its confirmed on page 59 of the user manual:

      Video Mode question: (Leica SL)
      Does anyone know how to set the 'shutter speed' to slower than the 'fps rate' in video mode to create 'shutter/motion blur effects' in camera?
      It seems to only go as low as the fps rate no matter what I try, perhaps someone has a work-around or tip?
      Thanks in advance!

      Hate to say the SL2 video capabilities are seriously flawed at 4K recording and C4K.  See the picture below.  The main issues I ran into during a full day of video use (With the 50 APO SL and 35/1.2 Art):
      1.  4K recording can only occur for 5 minutes or less on a full battery before error message “battery level too low for 4K recording”.  (Changed batteries and encountered same issue so it’s not the battery)
      2.  C4K recording restricts AF usage, limited to only manual focus with the Sigma 35/1.2. 
      3. All AF capabilities during recording are very slow to focus, unable to switch faces during face/body detection (in the rare case it captures a face), the AF box may at times capture 2-3 bodies and choose to “average” the focus distance.  
      4.  No compressed 4K recording at 50mbps or less.  
      5.  Video Focus peaking’s highlighted/colored areas do not match still focus peaking highlighted areas.  
      6.  No way to magnify the video during capture to check focus.  
       
      Unfortunately the error message for battery doesn’t show up until 30 seconds after you hit record video.  So it ruined a nice Xmas morning moment with the family, when I set up the tripod, hit record, then joined the wife/baby.  5 minutes later, I check the camera and only 30 seconds or less were recorded and the moment gone.  Last year my A7r3 recorded 4K full width of sensor till the battery went to 0%.  AF easily moved from eye to eye of subjects, focus peaking was accurate and easily seen, and it held tons of video in a UHS-1 SD Card.  
       
      For a camera that touts it video recording, my iPhone did better (actually much better), and then I had to grab my xpro3 for the rest of the day.  
       
      how did Leica release a camera with such terrible firmware?? ASIDE from video, just off the top of my head, I recall: terrible accuracy and reliability issues with AF-c tracking, complete lack of eye-AF all together, blurry EVF view in magnified mode for AF-s and manual focus, no AF-s abilities at all while in magnified live view,  terrible reliability with tethering (can’t tether to an iPad with two SD cards in the camera due to a firmware bug),  nonlinear focusing in manual focus on the Summicron SL lenses.  That’s all I encountered, im sure there’s more to report.  I haven’t encountered a small percentage of such obvious firmware issues with the xpro3, a7r3, A7r4, Nikon z7, or gfx50r.

      I’m curious what settings you all use for video on the Q2, 4K 30 FPS or 4K 24 FPS Cinematic and what video style?

      Hello All,
      I shot MOV videos with my M-P 240 and some of the files got corrupted. I absolutely *MUST* restore these files.
      I tried the commonly found free techniques (QuickTime, VLC). 
      (Unsurprisingly), Most of the paid software restoration tools out there already claimed that they don't take Leica in charge as each brand and model have their own MOV file structure. I have spent time with their support team in live chats confirming this.
      Based on my files sizes (ranging 640 MB to 4 GB), I still have hope. Data definitely exists, but it's only a matter of finding the right restoration technique of compatible software.
      Anyone ran into a similar ordeal? I am devastated...
      Thank you so kindly in advance for your help!
      Charles

      At the end of November my son traded in his beloved M9 at the Berlin Leica store, and upgraded to a factory fresh, new M10. They gave him a generous trade-in allowance and he loves the M10 after 4 weeks of light use.
      Since the M10 has LiveView with a real-time video processor, he wonders - does the M10 have the necessary hardware and software to do video, if a firmware update was provided? I understand there would be the need for software to create a standard video format output.
