The first time I charged my Q2's battery it went to the green "charge" light. Yesterday the battery indicator was red. so I charged it overnight. this morning both the green charge and the orange 80% are lite. does this mean it's not fully charging? I pulled it out and re-inserted it. the charge was blinking but then stopped after 5 minutes. the orange 80% is still lite.? to me this means it's stuck between 80-100%? ? Anyone else experience this?

It may take several charge cycles to reach the maximum charge capacity of a LiIon battery. I’d guess that’s what’s going on with your hattery. I’d recommend using the camera and letting the battery get below half-charge then recharge it. Hopefully it achieves full charge as indicated after a few cycles.

On mine when the green light stops flashing but is a continuous green light , the orange light is also still lit.

The battery indicator in the EVF shows that it is is charged 88 to 100% (5 bars in the battery icon)

I bought the Nitecore charger and like it a lot. Smaller and works off USB. It gives the mAH used to charge the battery which would be the actual capacity of the battery if it were fully discharged before you started charging.

      Moin!
      Bei den meisten Bildern sieht man's natürlich, dennoch die Frage ob die Aktivierung/Nutzung der Makrofunktion der Q2 irgendwo in den EXIF Daten ausgewiesen wird.
      Wäre z.B. nützlich bei der Durchsuchung grösserer Bildbestände per Software nach derartigen Fotos.
      Danke, schönes WE und cheers, thomas

      Q2 (firmware 2.0) Question for the assembled masses. Does your Right Wheel Button work in manual focus? I can only get the focus zoom option to come up on the right wheel button when I am in manual mode. There is no press and hold menu option available and no way to assign ISO to that button. In auto-focus, it works fine. Anyone else experiencing this?

      Just installed the new Q2 firmware. Writing to the SD card is significantly improved. The buffer hasn't improved, of course, so I still get only 9 fast DNG+JPEG photos before the camera stops shooting, but instead of ~20 sec to finish writing, now it's <10 seconds. The card is a Sandisk Extreme Pro 300 mb/sec 64 GB. 
      I had never saved my settings as a User Profile, so I lost them. (Hint, when the camera asks if you would like to save your user settings before doing the firmware upgrade, it's NOT going to tell you that you don't have any.  ) Now I get to spend the next 30 minutes trying to recreate my settings. Sigh.

      Whenever I remove my SL2 battery, I lose all language, app, date and time settings, etc., and I'm forced to set them each time I remove the battery.
      Has anyone experienced this? I'm now charging with the usb-c port, but would like to figure this one out......
      Cheers,
      Scott
