  • Guess... You've told your Mac to only accept software from the app store and/or from Apple developers who have "signed" their programs and the new software is not signed.  Google "gatekeeper Mac" ...
  • F/2.8 (not 2.0) is the minimum aperture when you twist the dial to enter macro mode. It's even mentioned in the review on this site-- https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/leica-q-typ116/3 I don't ...
  • The root directory on your card is corrupted or you had a read error.  The computer thinks the DCIM folder is a file.  Eject the card, pull it out of the machine, and then re insert.  That will ...
  • Manual mode :)
  • Manual focus.  Focuses on what I want 100 % of th time :) I use manual about 90% of the time with my Q.
  • Not so, JD.  Set the JPEG saturation to monochrome and the viewfinder and LCD will display monochrome on the Q.
  • There is a sensor, not a button, next to the viewfinder that controls the screen and viewfinder ***if so configured***. If you have configured the camera to only use the viewfinder then the screen ...
  • So they are. Never mind! I'm happy with my 75 2.5 on an M 262  But I would have been even happier had I paid less :)
  • Your chart for the Summarit was the 2.4 version. The eBay price should be getting me upset given that I bought one for many more dollars a couple of months ago.  Oh well.
  • Not define, but Dfine 2, one of the now free NIK plug-ins.  It does noise removal.  I've had it for years and never needed to use it other than in play.  But then I don't print 20x30 images, either.
  • CC users get new features that standalone users don't. One example is the haze removal slider.  I think the new panorama edge warping feature or whatever Adobe calls it is another.
  • Yup, no problem using the camera and lens in the way I bought them to be used. I'm happy with the results (meaning the camera is better than me) from this weekend. 75mm is the right focal length ...
  • M lens coding is nothing more than some dots of paint on the lens side of things.  The camera can read the dots. Pretty simple.  I also allows 30 year old lenses to be coded.
  • I'm rarely compared with most people  :) My favorite focal length is 28mm.  I have a Q for that.   Based upon my past history the Q will be used more than the M.  The M with 75mm lens will ...
  • Created discussion thread Learning the Leica M
    I picked up a Leica M 262 with a 75mm Summarit-m 2.5 lens.  I can see it is going to take some time to get used to this combination.   I started playing with the system at relatively short ...
  • If you prefer the operating features of the Sony or Olympus why not use the Sony or the Olympus? They are great cameras.
  • Some, me anyway, would not like that. I'm happy the way it is.  I'm using back button to focus, half press to lock exposure, and full press to take image. The camera may be pointing at three ...
  • Nope. Cases are used for several reasons. Some of the reasons I can think of are... * Day to day use. A case with good fit and finish is needed especially if the camera is used while in the case or ...
  • Replied in EXIFTool
    Exiftool, unlike some other software, allows metadata to be adjusted without changing the image.  That's important especially for those that work with JPEG.  You don't want to change the image ...
