    SrMi got a reaction from SJH in Leica YouTube Video implies the M11 requires 4 x fl shutter speed minimum   
    This video has been discussed before, probably in the long thread "Problems getting sharp images by 60MP".
    AFAICR, the conclusion was that handholding speed vary by photographer.

    SrMi reacted to FlashGordonPhotography in What’s the verdict with 18, 36, 60MP?   
    I use mostly the 18MP and 60MP resolutions. It's a convenience thing. I'm pretty sure I'd get the same results doing reducing the file size in post but I'd rather do it in camera. Why have that extra step. When I shoot at 18MP I do see a little more usable DR at a pixel level but it's not a vast difference. Colours look identical. The main thing is that the buffer is huge at 18MP. Virtually unlimited. Versus 7-8 shots at 60MP before shooting slows down. Plus at a pixel level you might be able to handhold at slower speeds by reducing in post should see the same effect..
    It's really just buffer and memory space. Maybe a quicker transfer time to the computer. But if you don't need the bigger files I see no reason not to shoot at the lower resolutions. I'm not seeing any downsides so far. I think most of my casual shooting will be at 18MP and at 60 only when I know I'll need it.
    There were a few reports of a loss of *bite* in the 36MP files but I'm not seeing that in my workflow. 36MP is my least used resolution though. Currently 18MP is the most used.
    Overall I'm a fan of the tri resolution feature.

    Six months of not using it? Absolutely impossible unless I ended up in a coma or kidnapped.

    SrMi reacted to Luke_Miller in Superb new camera profiles and camera & film emulation presets (Cobalt-Image)   
    I just purchased the Cobalt camera profile for the Leica SL.  I'm a Capture One user and prefer their ProStandard camera profiles, but unlike the SL2 and SL2-S they do not have one for the SL.  The Cobalt profile gives me skin tones I like better than the Capture One generic SL profile and much better than the ones I created by color editing the generic one.

    SrMi got a reaction from jonoslack in Leica M11 Sony Sensor - Doesn’t have the “Leica Look”   
    Leica M11 has that horrible Phase One look, or Sigma fp L, or that horrible GFX 100S look. Not really …
    Having the same underlying sensor technology does not have much influence on the resulting file. Differences in CFA, in firmware, etc, determine the final output.
    Also, X1D and GFX 50S share the same underlying sensor technology and have very different output as well.

    SrMi reacted to WeiterWinkel in Q2 Firmware 4.0 new Instruction Manual PDF?   
    You can find it in the support section of the Leica homepage. But the filter doesn't work very well and hides the manual when you chose the Q2.

    If anyone wants to discuss Q2 Monochrom topics on which I've posted or to request further tests, please let me know here or using the comment feature of my blog. In response to a complaint here, I've made the blog navigation instructions more explicit. In response to a request from elsewhere, I've just posted a Siemens star test in red light.

    Yes, it's the same readout time. What would help is having a 12-bit mode.

    Jim is one of the most knowledgable people on cameras and a great photographer. His writings are sometimes way to geeky and not easy to understand. But he is among the few worth tuning to for learning.

    Most of well known film photographers did a lot of post processing when printing (mainly complex dodge and burn), or they hired specialists who did it for them according to their specific instructions (HCB).
    You leave a lot of image potential on the table if you do not post process your image. However, everyone should enjoy photography in their own ways.

    Did you read the second article as well?
    Jim does not write reviews in conventional sense, but publishes articles as he completes his measurements and findings.
    I should have warned that his articles may require more technical knowledge than your typical internet posts.
    I hope he continues to publish more articles about Q2M.
