  • Yes. I have the Q2 rather than Q2M but I assume it’s the same - you can select focus as one of the options for the rear button.  Page 81 in the Q2 manual. Be aware though that it doesn’t operate ...
  • Personally, I think the Q2 is far more than snapshot quality. The lens is excellent and the sensor is top quality. But you can get just as good photographs from cameras that are much cheaper. I ...
  • I also shoot relatively low number of pictures each year. After trying sessions out, I decided it didn’t work for me and prefer to use a single referenced catalog. I use C1 to import my files into ...
  • I use Capture One and find it much better than Lightroom or Elements, which I never clicked with. Never been a big user of Layers/masks but it does them too. I suspect using it in combination with ...
  • Replied in Camera Straps
    Quite a few companies on Etsy offer bespoke straps with Peak Design links. You could ask one of them if they can do something for you? I don’t have one myself, but look on Etsy for AfshootShop - ...
  • I use a small arca clamp like this, which I just screwed on to the top of my mini ball head ( I use a Leica mini tripod but fitted with a small Gitzo ballhead) https://www.amazon.co.uk/Neewer-Relea ...
  • I’d just go with what you already have. Personally, I use medium grad as a best of both worlds but it’s not so important that I think you need a new set. Maybe buy a reverse grad if you plan on ...
  • I deliberately bought a Q2 to avoid being tempted into buying lenses - which would be ruinously expensive 😂. It’s a very high quality camera and I’m expecting it to last several years even ...
  • Replied in CL2 coming?
    I’m in my mid-50s with very short sight (-8 diopter in my dominant eye). My Q2 EVF works fine regardless of whether I’m wearing glasses or contact lenses so if the CL or CL2 are about the same ...
  • Too true! I find myself salivating over the idea of an M10M with 50mm, but that way madness lies. When I had a Mamiya 7 I was planning on getting extra lens as well as the standard 80mm, but went ...
  • Personally, I’d go with Q or Q2, largely because of AF, decent manual focus too and macro capability (and no way of spending yet more money on lenses!). I’m a landscape photographer so weather ...
  • Yeah I’ve heard similar tales of poor customer service from him before. I’ve never indulged in buying anything that couldn’t be downloaded so not experienced a problem per se. But based on your ...
  • I can see why you might think these were ergonomic problems but I haven’t found it working like that in practice with my Q2.

    Although I wear glasses, I’ve never had a problem with flare in the...

  • May be worth you having a look at Thorsten Overgaard’s website and guides - he does one specifically on the Q2 and one on workflow. Don’t buy anything full price though - there’s regularly 90% ...
  • I don’t have a Fuji so can’t compare, but I don’t have any problems using my Q2 while wearing glasses. I have varifocals and needed to adjust the diopter dial on the Q2 slightly to ensure the EVF ...
