    Here are a few shots taken at the beach yesterday just before sunset and one taken with the macro setting in my home. They show one of the favorite beach activities for which southern California is famous!

    Re: Fun with the Leica Q

    Thanks for all the posts! After reviewing the thread I can see that this lens & sensor are way too contrasty and saturated to make my style of photograph. If Leica's goal was to come as close as they could to the look of Kodachrome, then it's quite a success. But if you liked Vericolor or Portra or a gentler palette, then the Q doesn't look like a good choice. I'd have to post-process to remove what it seems to do best!

    Re: Fun with the Leica Q

    Kirk,

    That's not the camera. It's the post-processing. I can see that I'm getting a bit carried away with the software. I do it late at night on a 5k iMac listening to the Grateful Dead.

    Cheers, Matt

    Re: Fun with the Leica Q

    No, Matt, I didn't mean you in particular! I sat down tonight to go through the thread start-to-finish, to try to take an overview.

    But I do agree that the the Q palette reminds me more of the G Dead than of a Bach fugue.

    Re: Fun with the Leica Q

    No problem. I still believe it's the player, not the instrument. Again, I am prone to excessive contrast. I reprocessed the four above. I'm looking forward to a Lightroom profile of the Q. I have another 2,000 photos from Italy to process, so, I'll get plenty of plenty of practice. I think Jono's, Kristian Dowling's and Ming Thien's are more Bach then Classic Rock.

    Cheers, Matt

    Re: Fun with the Leica Q

    Hi Matt

    I like especially images 1 , 2 and 3 .
    Could you please explain the value -3/5EV in your shooting data ?
    Are you shooting RAW (DNG) and what converter do you use ?

    I dislike LR and am waiting for SILKYPIX (rather complex though) to have the profiles to work with LEICA Q DNG format .
    No trouble to work with HASSELBLAD PHOCUS , latest version , but very limited .
    Therefore a second step in the workflow is PSCS 6 .
    Thanks . Jürgen .
    Regards . Jürgen .

    Re: Fun with the Leica Q

    Jurgen: Thanks! -3/5 EV is negative exposure compensation. EV is the unit of measurement. 1 EV is one exposure stop. I'm shooting raw and converting in Lightroom CC (2015). I love Lightroom.

    Cheers, Matt

    Re: Fun with the Leica Q

    Thank you Matt for your friendly response .
    Of course I know what an EV is .
    I obviously have put up my question in the wrong way . The LEICA Q can only compensate the exposure values by 1/3EV , 2/3EV etc . So you obviously do that in LR then ?

    Thanks for sharing your wheat storage silo images . I do love things like that , also old plant buildings and old rotten houses .

    Regards . Jürgen

    Re: Fun with the Leica Q

    Jurgan: Sorry, misunderstood. I don't know why "3/5"? It's what the info panel in Zenfolio says? I'll check later to see if that's what the metadata says. I love old and abandoned industrial buildings. Unfortunately, there aren't any around here.

    Cheers

    Re: Fun with the Leica Q

    I'm contemplating selling my Q. The problem, I've been traveling for work a lot lately. And every time I travel, I think, why not pack the Q as a backup camera. When I have free time, I walk around with said backup camera. I've been getting such stunning results from it, I don't know if I could sell it. Though it's not my preferred walk around FL.

    It's just that I have so many wide lenses, something's gotta give. But the wife likes it... But I want a 35S
    Also paid a lot for it, more then you fellows in America pay, probably less then you British fellows though. So I'd probably loose money on it.
    And I have the holster and spare battery, and geeze the holster is funny looking.. So I think that I'm gonna probably keep it.

    And BTW, this forum doesn't help.. Also makes me want to hold onto the Q!


    So anyway... Has anyone purchase the Q, sold it, regretted it?
    Keep in mind, I could care less about rumours of upcoming cameras. I wouldn't let it change my decision. This isn't really a work tool, though I've used it as such. It's more a fun toy for me. My work tools are settled M & S + Nikon.

    I have bought a Q and found it to be a great camera, but I didnt wnt to give up my M-system and found the T to be the more flexible partner for the M. Sold the Q and did not regret it so far.
    I think 28mm is a very great focal length but I wouldnt want to rely on just that focal length. So many see the Q as an addition to an M and a 50mm. But then one coule just carry an M with 50 and 28mm lenses, which is lighter than an M and a Q.

    Yes, the Q does make it easy. For me, the handling and feel, added to the inspired condifience, make it a great companion of my M system:

    Re: Fun with the Leica Q

    Hi Ashwin, nice shots. Some work better in black and white, some in color. But I think they're stronger as one set if they're not mixed (either all color, or all black and white).

    Easy, and fluid yes.. But this weekend I've noticed I'm considerably slower at focusing my RF. I really need to just use the RF EVERYDAY in order to stay sharp it seems. I think I'm pretty hard on myself though. I treat them Ms as if they're 1Dx cameras or something.
