Hi everybody.

My very first post on this forum. Mostly because I am a photographer-newbie. Or having said that, as a young man with poor economy, I purchased my first Leica 25+ years ago (a crazy thing to do). M6, second-hand, and I really enjoyed it for years. But I didn't follow the digital revolution, and my interest in taking pictures somewhat hibernated. To my big surprise I recently realized that my old M6 was attractive for many, and I decided to sell it. Or more precisely, to substitute it with a Q2. Which I got it a few days ago. Alas, the feel is the same, the simplicity likewise, and the joy of taking pictures immediately returned. The backside of the medal has been to learn, or understand maybe, how to organize, store and use the to me new editing programs. A quite frustrating process to be honest. I decided to go for Luminar 4, supposedly super for beginners, but so far I am very hesitant with changing the images too much. And actually, with the Q2 it doesn't seem all that necessary. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to exploring the macro, F1,7, cropping possibilities etc

I took my daughter to her regular activity at the University of Sports in Oslo today, and I brought my new camera. These pictures are nothing special, and I am sure they could be edited better. But what a joy to revitalize an old hobby with a Q2. A truly amazing camera with great details. Early evening this is, -10C, handheld. First picture is Oslo seen from North.

Fumigatus: I hear you about the post processing. Can you learn to live with OOC?  I have been a photographer for 50 years (gasp) and have been using my Q2 for a couple of years. "Everyone" says you need to work with the raw images and process them with so and so a program. Well, I started out with Lightroom trying this and got annoyed with all the crap I had to learn. Consulted information: I found thousands of pages and Youtube videos to educate me. Yuk. I could, but sure didn't want to. When I looked at the jpgs straight out of the camera (OOC) I thought they looked great and were so much better than all the previous generations of photo gear I have used. Now I just resist people saying I need to PP the raw images to get the most flexibility and quality out of each image. I simply edit the jpgs in Apple Photos to crop, straighten, lighten etc. when occasionally needed. That is more than enough to produce very satisfying results for me. I don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Enjoy this wonderful tool for its quality and simplicity and don't try to" embellish" your results for absolute ultimate perfection.
