    The Leica Q proves to be a pretty neat "street shooting" camera. Also, I was playing around with the Nik Software and On1 Suite and tried some filters on one of the shots... What do you think?

    Very nice- the colors are very muted, like an older slide film- is that your post-processing?

    What camera is the girl using.... Chrome Lens- is throwing me.

    I actually used the Nik suite Analog Efex Pro 2 which gives you a number of "classic cameras" type of rendering and additional means to modify each one. The young woman was shooting with a Fujifilm digital camera, not sure what model. I asked but she did not volunteer much info...

    I'm really liking the Leica Q.... Some of these images were cropped a lot! I resized them and processed them with On1 software as well as with the Nik Analog Efex Pro2

    The different filters really work. I like each 'mood' depending on the content. The very first image is my favorite - hard to explain - the color, and the juxtaposition of the skater with the people in their own world on the left.

    Thanks Dale, I thought the same thing about the scenes that were unfolding in front of me. I probably couldn't have captured them without the Q. As much as I like the M240, it's just not as easy to shoot with, although it probably has much more to do with me and my skill. However, the brilliant EVF, the AF and the 1/8000" capable shutter are really handy :2thumbs:

    These are some of the best Q photos I've seen. I think perhaps because they've been cropped and aren't the standard 28mm field of view which I hardly ever use. Well done :)

    Thank you very much! Yes, I did crop several of the shots. The 28mm FL is great for capturing a lot of stuff but at the same time If one isn't very close, the images need cropping to compose properly. I am not ashamed of using the crop tools and post processing to produce images that make the composition more pleasing and accentuate the mood I want to convey.

    That's one of the great things about the forum - people willing to experiment, and not worried that an image isn't perfect.

    Apropos, I shot a session at 6400 ISO in bright sunlight. Naturally, the noise is terrible and the very small apertures make for very little off focus areas. Anyway, here are some attempts at post processing the B&W jpegs from the camera

    The Leica CEO told us yesterday that the demand for the Leica Q is five times as great as available cameras.
    Your photos look very nice.

    With some specific Leica models ....it's like the old days of massive demand and little supply. Maybe they should reissue the M8.


    Did you happen to ask how many Q they make per unit time?

    The Q is/was the fxed-lens intro into the new SL series, so I'd guess that they are doing limited production of the Q and focusing more efforts on the SL. Just a guess.

    It's near by. I think Wax 'n Facts was on Moreland Ave. This was all shot on Euclid. You've been around L5p?
