  • I'm surprised nobody mentioned open-source raw editors, like DarkTable or RawTherapee. I consider Darktable as the best for noise reduction for nightshots, by really far (one just has to find the ...
  • and I didn't dare say, 'clickbait' -although the site announced me I'd be tracked straight away.
  • I'm using the Q connected to a Swiarovski scope, mainly for bird observation. I do use the 'birding' mode on the Q, and I noticed whatever setting I choose for image stabilization, the screen ...
  • It's not exactly that, if I may : the uncorrected DNGs (i. e. the raws when open by any raw editor save Adobe's that does not allow you to do this) feature quite more pixels, more than 100 each ...
  • You may have to, alas. I cannot promise anything not knowing really your situation, but in my case for instance the glitches following shaky wifi commanding (with interrupted wifi etc.) did ...
  • FWIW, I found this post elsewhere, but still need info on the details (ease of use, time to setup...)
  • Which is your operating system version? 1.1? Do you often use the wifi remote connection? -that's the only circumstances where I once found myself stuck (by a poor wifi) Did you try a general ...
  • Created question thread Q + Televid, any experience?
    Hello, Being a happy Leica Q user, I'm considering an association with a Leica Televid spotting scope and the associated interface fixture. Anyhow, being quite remote from large towns I find myself ...
  • Replied in Leica Q owner
    I tend to agree, but must admit some forum discussions did help me. Because I regularly shoot relatively dark scenes with big lightspots in the middle, I have come to prepare one of the four ...
  • I installed the Leica one immediately, having a rather raw and compact bag around it. No trouble with the touch functions. One has to be very careful when cleaning the screen before applying; any ...
  • The very detailed 'first impressions review' here was more than enough to allow me comparing many details, including pictures compared with my previous gear, and was more than enough to help me ...
  • Replied in Leica Q Grip
    Prevents tripod use -> Maybe OK for you and others, but not acceptable to me.
  • As you can see, if you are mad at least you'll be in good company here :-) I personally sold all my Nikon gear recently, but to buy a Leica Q. Actual viewfinder, fix lens, most recent interface... ...
  • In general, dedicated panorama tools do correct exposure variation from one image to the next (also sky color, ghost details...) I encourage you to try for instance Autopano , they have a ...
  • 15-bits sampling? Better-than-average multizone expo? Indeed I don't know, but as a recent Leica Q user I find myself shooting straight with the sun in the frame knowing the greys will stay ...
  • Switching to the 35-mm and 50-mm digital alternatives (which just crops the jpeg images, leaving the DNG untouched) does not change the 6000x4000 aspect ratio. I think video mode does change it, ...
  • DarkTable, RawTherapee, Lightzone are the most known open source apps that cover everything from raw/dng/jpeg handling to lens correction, denoising, process application to series of pics etc. all ...
  • I think it must appear also in the final jpegs, since after all that's all you can see here on internet, but where does it start... I can mention, too, that in at least recent Leica cameras the ...
  • I would say, working with zones and the luminance curve tool on 14- or 15-bits raw images should cover 90% of HDR cases. I see HDR rather as a trick for cameras with no raw and/of less bit depth, ...
  • You don't have a white balance setting on either cam? (I mean, the first thing I'd have tried after these two pics would have been, reset the whibal on each camera aiming at the same paper sheed ...
