Hi,

I have both a Leica Q and a D-Lux 7 and I use Lightroom to edit my pics. I have quite a bit of purchased presets as well.

With the Q, no issue at all.

With the D-Lux, even though my picture are taken in colour and imported in RAW format, some of the presets think the picture is black and white and show me options only in B&W. I have to manually go to the Colour option and click on it to see what the reworked photo looks in colour.

Anyone with the same issue ? Thanks.

Welcome Anthony,

I am rather surprised that you have bought third party presets. It is very much better to produce your own. They will be tailor-made for you an do exactly what you need.

As I have written elsewhere, acquiring other people's presets can be likened to borrowing someone else's shoes.  Even if they are your size, they are seldom comfortable and fully fit for your needs.

Thanks ..... I have to say those presets work very well and suit me with the Q .... for now. And the issue here are not the presets but why Lightroom considers some colour photos from the D-Lux 7 to be BW. Anything to do with a camera setting I would have missed ? Thanks.

One possibility is that you are recording jpeg files and raw, together, with a monochrome filter set for the jpegs. Raw gives you full colour but if you save the jpeg element it will show as monochrome.

I am only importing into Lighthouse in RAW format and no filters are set, so issue is unfortunately elsewhere. Thanks

Lighthouse! I have no experience there, I'm afraid.

      I'm not a heavy user of Lightroom CC, I tend to use it simply for easy processing of the odd photo on my phone or iPad.
      I've noticed the Monochrome profile for my M10-P is missing. I have the colour profile, not the monochrome option.
      Works perfectly on Lightroom Classic on my desktop, just missing on LR CC.
      Anyone any clues as to why and how I put it right.
      Thanks

      Hello, on the D-lux7 I presume the quoted 24mm angle of view at the wide setting is for the 3:2 ratio. So what would the horizontal equivalent angle of view be at the 16:9 ratio? Would it be something like a FF 20mm lens?
      I know that the diagonal angle of view is constant at all ratios, but the horizontal angle of view will be different for different ratios.
      I would be grateful if someone could give me an answer.
      Thanks in advance!

      Hey Guys! I’m new to this forum since I got my Q2 today :) I imported DNGs to Capture One 20 and the colors are completely off - way way over saturated and shifting towards magenta right after import with no adjustments applied. 
      In Lightroom the colors I see represent what I see in camera. What’s the reason for that? I read that capture one 20 deals with native DNGs just fine. Is there a fix for it? A setting I’m not seeing etc?
       
      thanks :)

      Hi everyone, just a quick question.
      I am planning to buy the new MacBook Pro 2019, should I go for 32 or 64GB RAM?
      I have already made up my mind that I will choose the fastest processor and the biggest graphic card.
      I am using Lightroom and Photoshop and you know, there are always a few Safari and Mail windows open, iTunes in the background, that sort of thing. I am replacing my mid 2012 MacBook Pro and I am hoping this new machine will last me another eight years, so keeping in mind that the machine should still be quite usable in say, five years time, 32 or 64 GB?
      I am hoping this new machine will last me another eight years 😊
      Thanks in advance!

      Where can one find the battery charge level?
      What's the best way to extend the battery life? 
      If I shoot DNG/JPG, where do the JPGs end up? I don’t see them when I import the files into Lightroom. Are they the ones transferred over to the Leica Photos? 
      If one shoots A for aperture, shutter speed, and focus, is it the same as Full Auto in Scene Mode?
      I notice the photos I take in Black and White turn to color when I import them into Lightroom. Importing the B&W photo into Leica Fotos shows it is B&W, which I assume is so that it can be shared. My question is: Are there specific Lightroom presets that show the Leica style?
      I occasionally get the red box with spinning circle. Why does it do that? I assume it’s writing to disk but I’ve had occasions where I haven’t taken a photo at all, so there’s nothing to “write to disk.”
      Can I use the Leica Q2 LCD panel to focus/shoot like my Canon 5D Mark IV? Maybe I’m wrong but I recall seeing a video of a Leica Q doing so. 
      Does changing the user profile also change what’s found on the favorites menu? 
      Is there any sort of logic for how to set up the FN versus the wheel button? I appreciate their usefulness but I find I can’t remember what’s where and I end up going back to the menu button. Any suggestions on how to set it up logically?
