Leica Q (typ116) Banding Noise

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

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 : (

What were your settings? Any camera will show artefacts like this when pushed to extremes, especially when underexposed.

Down below is the camera setting. Also, I sued Lightroom to push 2 stops up.

Yes, if you use a 4 sec exposure without LENR you will get these artifacts

Hi! I also noticed the EVF in my Leica Q tends to be bluish ( cold ) than the LCD screen. is it normal?

My Q EVF is bluish too. I guess it is normal. Recently I had a chance to look into the Q2 EVF. No bluish tint. Very nice.

The blue EVF is really annoying : /

Long Exposure Noise Reduction

Thanks. Now I know my Q has lenr which I never used or even knew it exists. I guess it don't matter much to me since I don't shot long exposure:)

I didn't know it either until the day I was trying a R72 filter for some IR shots. First thought something was wrong but ended pleasantly surprised when I realized what it was doing.

Hi Yeedah,

The colour shown in your EVF should match that on the LCD. Both will be influenced by your WB setting. Check that first before you begin to suspect a fault.

I have checked my menu setting several times, and it there isn't an option for setting the WB of the EVF or LCD.
