  1. Thanks for posting the image. It gives a clear picture. How long have you had the bag and are you happy with it?
  2. Does any one use the PD 6L sling bag to carry a SL2 with 24-90 Elmarit attached? Is there any space left to carry small accessories like blower, table top tripod,etc? and how does it feel to carry for 2-3 hours? any other similar alternatives?
  3. After leaving the above comment in another thread on the topic of Flash unit, I experimented again with my Leica SF C1 transmitter and the Nissin i60A flash for Canon. Soon after buying the i60A, I had to send it to the distributor to get the paid firmware upgrade. I believe there are three factors in play, the SL2 itself, the SF C1 transmitter and the i60A flash. Below are some of my observations: 1. Even when I set the lowest shutter speed to 1/60sec in the SL2 for flash, when I select P or A modes, the shutter can go down to any duration, depending on the ambient light. This creates ha
  4. The Leica SF C1 confirms compatibility with Nissin Air system. My experience with the Nissin i60A, Leica's SF60 is based on it, is varied. Firstly, one has to get the firmware in the i60A upgraded to the latest one for which the flash has to be sent to the Nissin distributor and pay roughly US$ 35 for the upgrade. After the firmware upgrade, my experience has not been satisfactory. Sometimes the TTL flash work fine and many times, does't. I have failed to reproduce the failure situation, as it seems to be randomly occurring. A vague association is when there is good ambient light, like room we
  5. I have had the SL2 now for the last 9months and haven't yet changed teh AF profile from the default Children/pets option. I have varied success with moving subjects, like running children, children on swings. Any further guidance on tweaking the AF profile across its three parameters for birds in flight , children on swings would be much appreciated.
  6. Is the image as you would see in the viewfinder, or is it laterally inverted?
  7. The lack of a tilting display on the SL2 makes it difficult to shoot from low or other than eye level angles. Has anyone tried to put a secondary display, say mounted on the flash shoe so that it becomes easy to see the with low or difficult angles. I saw using the Atomos Ninja for also recording video. Can the iPhone mounted on the hot shoe be a possibility or any other display option?
  8. With due respect to individual's purchase justifications, I believe the large investment in a Leica is for its lenses and not so much for the body (M aside). I too debated on the lens, eventually, bought the SL Vario-elmart 24-90 to go wiht my SL2. Though heavy, I have managed to lug it for full day trips with a lot of walking, I do not need to change lenses, and the quality of images are ideal. A very personal decision of mine.
  9. Many thanks tfor your advice. I bought a 256 GB ADATA's Premier One V90 SDXC card at the price of a V60 of other brands (Lexar). As my MacBook Pro has SSD, I hope to benefit from the faster download speeds of the V90. The Black Magic Disk Speed Test App reported a 220MB/s Write speed and 252MB/s Read speed.
  10. Does anyone have experience using the Leica TL 35mm f1.4 on an SL2? I have the following questions. 1. I know that the image will be a 24Mpixel cropped image, but will the field of view be equivalent to the original 35mm, or it will multiplied by the crop factor? 2. How does the AF speed? as compared to a L lens, say the 24-90mm elmarit zoom? Thanks.
  11. with my existing 64GB cards quickly getting filled in regular shoots, i am considering buying 128GB or 256GB cards. However, the cost of V90 cards are prohibitive. Are V60 rated cards appropriate? I am mostly a still photographer who will want to take advantage of high speed shooting and occaisional 4K videos. And any preferred brands- Adata, Angelbird, Sony or Lexar?
  12. Have been enjoying making images with my SL2 and the vario-elmarit 24-90. However, still trying to learn and to improve my focus rate for moving subjects. I have been trying mainly AFc and Face/body tracking with a reasonable success rate of say 60-70% which I am hoping to improve with better technique. I have not yet tried the Tracking option of AF metering and its link with Afs and AFc as the manual says both can be used.
  13. Sunset at Taj Mahal, Agra India. Leica SL2 with SL 24-90mm at 24mm ISO 200 f10 1/200s. Image cropped and levels adjusted in Capture One.
  14. Thank you Aktenschrank, I indeed had changed the user profile in between. I now managed to save the change following your instruction.
  15. Thank you Jeff for the trick. However, it the function is not saved to the button. It ony works once and again comes back to the default setting of magnification!
