Was “back to school” this weekend and had the chance to use my fairly new Q2

That’s indeed pretty good compared to the $2.40 you’d pay after getting out of Harvard😂😇

The perfect go anywhere camera IMO.

 By: fernando : November 3rd, 2019-21:06
The versatility of the 28mm f1.7 lens cannot be under estimated as evident by your photos. The stand out for me is the clock tower with excellent use of negative space.

I like the Q2 very much, although it is limiting as compared to my DSLR with typical lenses I’d carry

 By: descartes1 : November 4th, 2019-07:26
That said, it is just so much more convenient to bring along with me. (As the saying goes, “The best camera is the one you have with you”).

My only very significant complaint is about the Q2 is the terrible WiFi connectivity via Leica Photos which almost always fails to work and makes me so frustrated I hate the camera at times. At times, I’ve considered returning it because of that.

I also have a Q2.

 By: roger.goodgion : November 4th, 2019-17:23
I shoot exclusively with it now. It is that convenient.
I would recommend ( if you are an iPhone guy) getting a micro sad to lightning adapter . I got one on Amazon for $12. Super tiny so it goes in my pocket. If I need to dump photos, it’s quick.
I did it less because of WiFi issues and more to save battery life on Q2 when out taking pics.

Hope this helps.

This is an excellent suggestion

I was unaware of this product and have now ordered it. Thanks!

Thank you for sharing this experience so personally.

Awesome photos, my friend. Wow!!! I will soon need to replace my D Lux 6, so you are giving me some ideas, with your camera. ;) [nt]

It’s an awesome camera, except for WiFi connectivity (see comment above). If you plan to use it primarily to take photos that you intend to post on the internet via WiFi I’d probably caution against the Q2. Maybe in the future Leica will work this out, but right now functionality is really bad and frustrating.

But you still have a classic connection between the Camera and the lab top, no? [nt]

The only way to transfer the images of the WiFi is not working is via the memory card

 By: descartes1 : November 4th, 2019-12:51
In other words, you have to have a card reader attached to your computer and down load images using that. This is all well and good, but having WiFi and being able to down load to your phone or iPad without wires or having to “plug in” is really convenient (especially when traveling or on the go) and it’s just disappointing that it doesn’t work most of the time. The reviews on the Leica Fotos App really describe this problem quite well.

Ouch... In that case, not for me. [nt]

Roger had a suggestion (see above) that I am going to try. It may work for you. [nt]

It’s not my usual genre, but still a fun subject.

Ithaca is Gorges!

Thanks for sharing the nice photos. I'm now inspired to get a Summilux lens ;) [nt]

No complaints about the lens at all. Somehow it makes subjects look better than in real life. [nt]

One if the best

 By: Jurry : November 4th, 2019-07:16

Ha you’ve been to one of the very best universities in the US if not in the entire world.

Many shout Harvard but Cornell is same if not better especially in engineering fields.

I graduated from the Air Force Academy and just before I left the Airforce I completed an MBA at Oklahoma University. They had special off campus tuition for military only and although not as superb as Cornell, I still carry warm memories of those times long gone by.

Great pictures. Personally those two in the park with the trees losing leaves and those fantastic red and brown colors, speak most to me. Although I understand and agree with one of the other members who responded and wrote you took excellent use of the empty space.

Great photos which comes to show that, next to whatever you graduated in, you must have learned few things about photography as well

Thanks for sharing
