  1. https://vimeo.com/208254533 A short video clip I made on SL with Summarit 35/2.4 in L-log and graded in FCP X as Arri Log C footage. Wanted to finally see what can be done with those L-log files. Not bad results, looks really promising. Anyone here has any experience with making films on SL? How do you capture the footage, how do you colour grade later? What LUT do you use? I've looked at buying some extra LUT loaders and use some custom LUTs but decided that it's not really needed. I can work with what's in the Apple Final Cut Pro X quite effectively it seems. How about you?
  2. Hamburg Derby Horsejumping on Saturday Last competition (and once again WINNER) and farewell of a famous horse Casall ASK under Rolf- Göran Bengtsson SL with 24-90 at 90 mm ISO 200 1/4000 f4.0
  3. Hi Before I claim on my home insurance, I thought I would check what the Leica Passport covers? Camera was bought on 31 March 2016 in UK, with the old Passport Cover and registered. On 11 April, I dropped camera onto concrete. There is cosmetic damage to the top plate where the thumb rest is. Camera still seems to work fine. So it is one year plus few days into cover. IS accidental droppage covered by Leica? Thanks in advance
  4. hi, has anyone tried the 135mm f/3.4 APO Telyt-M Lens on their SL ? any feedback would be appreciated
  5. Hallo zusammen, nachdem ich das up-Date auf Version 3 gemacht hatte, waren meine Bildnummern weg. Die SL fing wieder bei Bild 0001 im Ordner 100 an. Ich habe schon versucht die Bildnummer im Mac, sowie in Win-Rechnern zu ändern, und die Karte wieder in die SL zu stecken. Jede weitere Aufnahme auf der SD-Karte wird mit einem neuem Ordner quittiert. Mein Ziel ist es aus der Bildnummer L1000001 die Bildnummer L1002580 zu machen. Hat hier einer eine Lösung? Danke Wolfgang
  6. Hi I use my SL mostly, if not to say exclusively, for photography. Mostly portraits. I don't know much about video. So now we got a new horse and I want ocasionally make some short clips. My first attempts with AF were a failure, I don't know if it's me or the camera (I think it's me). So what AF-settings would you suggest to start with? The set are four horses, two all black (seems impossible to focus them in AFc without hunting AF) which should be captured in the movement. Any idea? thank you!

  8. Going to New York on the 4th of July. what are best photo viewing areas with the best backgrounds. Also, best iso, shutterspeeeds, lenses. On the SL is there something that i have to program to simulate a cable release? Thanks for everyone's comment!
  9. Dear all, I am a happy M(240) owner. I use it a lot, and, since I bought it in 2014, I almost no longer use my film M's. I even sold y M7, rarely use my M3 and M6, and the M4 is collecting dust ! I am happy with the M(240) results, apart from 1) high ISO results (I find colour ok until ISO 1600, B&W until 2500) and 2) the problem with mixed lighting : shooting in artificial light is giving uneven results, and when combined with daylight, it is not reliable. Most of the time I shoot with my 'lux 50, but I love my Noct and recently had my 'lux 75 serviced by Leica. Results are often stunning. I understand the SL is a great tool with those lenses. My wife is pregnant and we expect a little baby in october. I really want a nice tool get thousands of pictures, and high ISO is a criteria! When the M10 was announced, I quickly thought about buying one because of better high iso, better colour results with combined lighting and because of WiFi (getting the SD card out of the camera after unlocking the half-case in PITA), and sell the M(240) at quite a loss. After some thought, and given the recent SL price adjustment, I am wondering if I should not keep my M(240) and buy a SL rather than buying a M10 and sell the M(240). In the long term, it could be not too bad an investment, since I could wait a couple of years before upgrading the M(240) and use the SL with both my Noct and 'lux 75 !

  10. I'm a professional that shoots tethered 99.9% of the time (with H'blad). I segued to the SL system via the M240 hoping that I could sideline the Hasselblad in favour of the SL because the IQ from the SL is so very good and not every client wants or needs 150mb files. Then I tried Image Shuttle. Oh what a disappointment. It bewilders me how a company such as Leica can seriously expect todays professional photographer can tolerate a tethering software that is so very basic. And this is the same software they expect S shooters to use. Canon tethering software back in the early 2000's was feature packed compared to Image Shuttle! At the very least Image Shuttle requires the ability to override the auto orientation of the camera. If you require the camera to be pointing perpendicular to the horizon, the software can't decide whether to display the live image as either portrait or landscape. Easily fixed with a simple check box! Or, a grid overlay - which can be displayed on the back of the camera but not on the tethered live view! And why do I need four zeros in the imaging numbering - could I please choose how many zeros I need. And not to mention the convoluted Lightroom folder hierarchy which results in there being a delay of 7 - 10 seconds for a single shot to display. Please Mr image Shuttle Developer, please have a look at the competitions tethering software and give us some basics before you shout how "professional" the SL and S systems are. Or go into a studio and see the workflow requirements by pro studio photographers. The SL has beautiful IQ and it saddens me I have to pick the right sort of jobs to use it where I don't require anything from the software other than to look at the live image. I can't migrate my clients that are used to the Hasselblad Phocus experience to the Leica experience because it is such a retrograde step in software features. Anyone agree? Grant
  11. The newly released Sigma 14mm f1.8 Art lens is discussed in several threads, but it might be convenient to gather info in one dedicated thread. The lens is available in Nikon and Canon mounts. As a guidance to new/potential buyers, here are some findings after playing with three copies of the lens, all in Nikon mounts. The testing has been tailored for night/star/northern light/etc. photography, i.e., with the deep sky as a major component of the image. In the following I only discuss sharpness across the image when the lenses are set wide open (f1.8) and at near infinity. Other optical qualities are, of course, of importance as well (aberration, astigmatism, coma, etc.), as well as other shooting conditions. As mentioned, three copies of the Sigma lens have been tested, all in Nikon mount, but I guess the results are transferable to Canon mounts as well. The tests are done with Nikon D5 and Leica SL, the latter with two Novoflex Nikon-to-Leica adapters (one manual and one electronic): (0) Yes, even infinity needs accurate focusing! Therefore, forget the infinity marking on the lens (as on most lenses). (1) Set the lens to manual focus; it appears that the focusing is less reliable when the lens is set to auto focus (despite auto focus is not activated by any camera buttons). Don't ask why and I can not prove it, this is a suspicion I have based on the testing. (2) Live view on Nikon D5, at full zoom, is only marginally able to guide correct infinity focus. Using a loupe on the back screen is recommended, possibly needed. (3) Live view on Leica SL, at 10x magnification, is much more accurate than the Nikon live view (nothing new here) and can be trusted regarding infinity focus. Thumbs up for the SL! (4) In my case, the manual Novoflex adapter gives even focus throughout most of the image. This is not the case for the electronic adapter; when the center of the image is in focus, the edges smear, and vice versa. So there are differences in the mount precision. This does not imply/prove that manual Novoflex adapters are more accurate than the electronic one, rather that differences between adapters can be expected. So for accurate infinity focus with non-SL lenses, testing of several adapters might be required (actually, I have two manual Novoflex adapters, with one being a `keeper', the other less so). So adapters can be tricky. (5) Irrespective of the FF body used (Nikon D5 or Leica SL), copies of the Sigma 14mm f1.8 ART at f1.8 show differences regarding edge/corner sharpness when the central part of the image is in focus. Vice versa, when the focus point is set near(er) to the corners, the central part of the image may turn soft. So some copies of the lens do not stand the task. Actually, the excellent SL EVF can be used to judge the lens sharpness across most of the image. Set the focus somewhere in the frame, and 'walk' around in the EVF to check the focus throughout the frame (note that we are talking about focus near infinity). (6) Of the three lenses tested on D5 and SL, the latter with the manual Novoflex adapter, one copy is fine - being sharp across the image with only weak softness in the outmost corners. The lens is sharper than the Nikon 14-25 f2.8G zoom, a highly regarded lens (despite the Sigma is shot at f1.8). One copy is perhaps acceptable, the third copy fails wrt edge/corner sharpness. (7) For all three copies of the lens, optimal sharpness across the image appears to be obtained when the focus is put about 1/3 off the centre of the image. (8) I find accurate, manual focussing somewhat tricky with the lens; very small rotation of the focus ring moves the focus point too far/quickly, so I would prefer a longer focus throw length (but I guess this might influence the lens' autofocus). In conclusion, the new Sigma can be fine, even used wide open at f1.8, but testing is needed... Used on the SL, testing of adapters are also needed... Images will follow after some shooting.
  12. Focal distance (front, focus, back) appears in the OLED when the shutter is half-pressed using the SL 50mm but the same information does not appear using the SL 28-90 or SL 90-280. Firmware has been updated to 3.0. Curious if this is normal or if anyone has an explanation?
  13. Any news about this camera? It is clear that it is going to appear sooner or later, but WHEN and HOW will it be? If you look at the current product range, there is one or more camera every 1.000 Euros, with a lack at around 3.000€: C and V-Lux: 1.000 Euros TL2: 2.000 Euros + lens small SL (or TL w/EVF): 3.000 + lens Q: +4.000 Euro SL: + 5.000 + lens M: + 6.000 + lens S: etc. etc.... And the TL lens range has a great potential to be used on more then one body only. I believe it will be more a "small" SL rather then a TL with EVF, for which is hard to ask for 3.000 Euro... Better a pro look, with the bulky but acceptable EVF, watertight, heavy, similar to SL but smaller... What do you think? any news?
  14. I´ve been planing this excursion for weeks, every time i wanted to start something went wrong. But yesterday .... All pictures Leica SL and 28mm Lux or 24-90 (see exif data)
  15. Tag der Offen Tür bei LEICA Sensorreinigung SL / M (240,246) Bei aufgesetztem Objektiv Bajonettring und Deckkappe mit Pinsel von Staub befreien. Sensor anhauchen Die groben Teilchen vorsichtig wegstempeln Spachtel mit Isopropanol tränken, überschüssige Flüssigkeit abklopfen. Spachtel leicht über den Sensor ziehen Event. von den Rändern Schmutz in die Mitte ziehen und dann wegstempeln.
  16. I want to use the SL in conjunction with a motion control rig. This rig allows the camera to do time lapse while in motion but in order for it to line up perfectly the rig needs to control the camera with a shutter release cable. With the SL's new proprietary multi use jack there is no cable provided by the rig company that will allow me to do this. My question is this; if I buy the SL audio adapter and connect a standard release cable to the adapters 3.5mm port, will that trigger the cameras shutter? If not, do you have any other suggestions? Thanks!
  17. good evening, as an owner of both systems (and also M and T ;( ) I wondered how others do use these cameras. For my part I believe to see this extra wow/smoothness/pop in IQ of S images, even though SL IQ also seem "fine/excellent", I enjoy the primes on the S, but also using primes adds up bulk (weight when being outside), the 24-90 SL can "replace" the focal length range of bringing 3 primes for the S. I prefer the OVF of the S but then I like the face detection of the SL and being able to move arounf focus points. So for now I use the SL when I need speed/flexibility, and the S when I want the best possible IQ. so whats your guys experience?

    Little day out trip to Kew Gardens. The following pictures were taken in the palm house, both the with SL + 50 1.4 combo.
  19. How's the combo for landscapes? Has it been discussed here or elsewhere? Considering to buy it to replace my two Voigtländer-M 10mm and 15mm.
  20. Hallo, wie um alles in der Welt ist möglich die Lupe mit angesetztem SL-Elmarit und MF-Einstellung zu aktivieren? Ich habe inzwischen auch meine individuelle Tastenbelegung zurückgesetzt, da ich irgendwo gelesen habe, dass man zur Aktivierung die Fn-Taste zweimal drücken muss, leider ohne Erfolg. Bei angesetztem M-Objektiv bekomme ich wenigsten eine Lupe beim Drücken auf den Curserknopf - leider nur eine Lupenvergrößerung, die zweite Vergrößerungsstufe bleibt leider auch aus. Habe ich etwas übersehen oder muss ich jetzt meine Kamera komplett zurücksetzen? Freue mich auf Eure Tipps, Gruß, Peter__

  22. I sold my M 240 and was planning on upgrading to the M 10 but just curious on what you guys think getting the SL versus the M 10? I've shot with the SL once, as great as a camera it is it's not a rangefinder which is why I love the M line, however I've found a good deal on a used one.
