Leica Q series camera support


Recommended Posts

Whad does "Leica Q2 & compatibles" mean, as supported camera?

Leica Q3 is not officially supported, and has a different sensor than the Q2 (and the Q), so it is not clear what the phrase does mean. Any idea?

Hope that the Q3 will be officially supported ASAP, anyway.

Hi @Maxbe!

Usually '& compatibles' in the Lens dialog is referring to compatible lenses for the camera, that are not the default lens the camera is sold with - however as I understand it the Q2 doesn't support a swappable lens, therefore this wording is a little confusing. I'll be sure to let our team know regarding this to see if the wording can be tweaked.

As you've mentioned, the Leica Q3 is not currently included in our RAW Support list for V2. As Affinity Photo uses LibRAW for RAW support, we must wait for this Library to include support for your camera, before this can be added to Affinity Photo.

In the meantime, you may find that the app is able to develop these files without full support for the camera model by converting the RAW files to DNG, using a free converter (for example) and then opening these DNGs within Affinity to be developed.

I hope this clears things up :)

Hi Dan C,

Many thanks for your prompt answer!

Now I understand what is the meaning of "... & compatibles"

Thanks too for the DNG suggestion (the fact that Leica call their raw files DNG too maybe another little source of confusion). Your suggestion is vey welcome (of course having the camera included in the FlibRAW library simplify the workflow):

Have a nice day!

Maxbe
