  1. I am slowly managing to get out more now, ands back in my usual coffee shop yesterday. I couldn't resist taking a candid image of this young lady at the counter because of her height. She must have been about 1.8 metres. Leica M240 + 35mm Summarit f2.5 @ 1250 iso. 1/250 @ f2.8 and post-processed in Lightroom Classic. Gerry
  2. Many of us have already noticed it, but shooting @ iso 25000 is now a non-issue 😊
  3. It's well documented that the M240 is not able to go past 8 seconds shutter duration when set at ISO 800 and further which makes successful Milky Way type of pictures very difficult (standard being something like 30 seconds at ISO 1600 at f2). Well after some searching today I found a post where a guy had discovered that using the M set on auto ISO and in continuous shoot mode when set on bulb he could get 60 seconds. However even when auto ISO high limit was set at 3600 ISO the exposure turned out at 800 ISO the camera not shifting the the highest ISO in the auto setting. Anyway after some ex
  4. I jsut received an email from the forum advertising Denoise software. I was just curious if anyone has used this product and what their impression is. It is certainly affordable at $35 and I would like to use it on some older files.
  5. I know that nearly everyone on this forum is more knowledgeable about Leica cameras than myself. I have a Q2 on order. Several reviewers have reported high ISO/low light issues with the new sensor. Do people think that these problems can be be rectified, or at least improved, in a future firmware update? Or is the camera stuck with them? Or do the issues not really exist?
  6. Dear all, I am the happy owner of a M(240), and more recently a CL and SL. I am coming from over 15 years of film M. I like shooting the rangefinder camera though I find a huge difference between my almost 5 year old M and the most recent (for me: I got the CL last january and the SL in October) cameras in image quality as soon as I shoot over iso 1600. I almost never shoot the M in color over iso 1600 since I don’t like what I can get out of lightroom @iso 2500 or more in color. i also have trouble with color consistency in mixed (daylight + artificial) lighting with

    The Gesture

    Taken whilst having my morning coffee in my favourite coffee house in my home town of Southampton, England.
  8. Taken at a BBQ held by a bespoke motorcycle dealership this morning. Leica M240 + 35mm Summarit f2.5. 1/100th &f5.6 @3200 iso (yes, guess who forgot to reset the iso when he came out of the workshops!) Gerry

    The Blue Handbag

    Taken as a candid shot at my normal coffee haunt today: Leica M240 + 50mm Summicron f2 @ 1600 iso. 1/30 f9.5 handheld. Gerry
  10. I have just acquired a 50mm Summicron-M f2 IV so I took it for a test run (which consisted of one shot) today. This was at 1250 iso 1/125 and f6.8 - Gerry
  11. While I was having coffee at my favourite place this guy was sat running his office over his cup of coffee. "Hi, it's Mike the Magician" he said down the telephone. Sadly the guy at the other end didn't seem to know who he was. I took this candid shot of him with the M240 + 50mm lens at 1600iso. I then processed it through Lightroom Classic. Hope you like it! Gerry
  12. I took my regular visit to my favourite city-centre coffee shop and when he served me the guy behind the counter said "Have you taken any good snaps yet today?". I hadn't, but whilst I sat there with my coffee and Danish this scenario appeared in front of me. It is a candid image, and they did not notice me at any time. I used my M240 fitted with the 50mm Zeiss Sonnar f1.5 and I was working at 1,000iso. Exposure was 1/60th @ f6.8. post-processing was in Lightroom Classic. Hope you like it! Gerry

    A young lady sits in contemplation at my favourite coffee shop. Leica M240 - 1/125th at f5.6 handheld @ 2,000 iso processed in LR Classic. Gerry
  14. Dear all, I had the opportunity to handle the CL for a few minutes this week. I have been considering for some time now either : . to add a SL to my M(240) . replace my M(240) with a M10 in order to gain better high ISO IQ and easier use for my 2 favorite lenses (right) now, ie Noctilux 50 and Summilux 75 (I use the a lot to shoot pictures of my 6 week old daughter) I like the way the CL handles, and wonder if another solution would not be to buy one for use with those lenses : I don't mind the crop factor for this, compact size is nice to take it with the M, and the EVF looks pretty
  15. Dear all, how does the CL (JPEG / RAW) compare to M(240), to M10 and to SL regarding high-iso picture quality ? has anyone pictures ? thanks Didier
  16. Last night I took a trip into the centre of the city to look at the temporary ice rink but also took the opportunity to photograph the latest city centre leisure complex consisting of 10 cinema screens and countless restaurants. The ice rink is visible as the blue area bottom left, but not the purpose of this image. I must be honest, it is probably a young persons place, and I am not a young person, but I was quite pleased with my efforts. Here is a sample image taken at 2500iso using the Leica M240 and 24mm Elmarit-M f2.8. Settings were 1/45 at f2.8 (no tripod). If you want a larger image go
  17. Dear M8 users, as a true fan of my little camera and an avid reader of M8 related discussions and reviews I have stumbled upon negative comments regarding the high ISO performance numerous times. Mostly they go along the lines of "don't go above 160/320/640, as it becomes really unusable", "looks like my webcam", "terrible ISO performance" etc. I think it is time to dedicate a thread showing those horrible images at higher ISO... So that people looking for a M8 know what they can expect (and others might finally stop shooting high ISO images, cause they won't get any good results at
  18. Here is some comparison I made between Leica M 240 and M9 for a night photo made at ISO 200, 1250 and 3200-2500. Enjoy ! Leica M (type240) vs Leica M9 – Night Landscape Photos Comparison
  19. After the product presentation yesterday I spoke briefly with Stefan Daniel, the head of Leica's product management division, about a number of things including the decision to limit the M9 to ISO 2500 and the micro 4/3 format. A transcript is on my blog. Again, thanks to everyone who suggested questions. I couldn't ask everything but I hope you find his answers interesting.
  20. I recently made a picture, while I still had the camera in the settings of an earlier eveing shot: at 1250 A. It is 1/8000 and F 4 or so. Overcast, daylight I was midday. I expected the picture to be worthless. But in fact it looks very very good... No grain, sharp, almost a 160 A picture! And here is a 100 % crop from the area I focussed. Tack sharp (as the Summicrom 50 is). Also here I hesitate - don't see more than a hint in the form of the common digital artifacts exept some digital grain in the grays. Is that because it is actually overexposed? (the shutter squeezed out a 1
  21. Okay, Leicaphiles. you've gotten the new firmware update. You've had enough time to feel pretty confident the high ISO performance is improved. I happened to take a series of shots of the same scene directly before and after the update and posted some 100% crops to test this out. Is it a Solms miracle? The L-Camera-Placebo-Effect? Leica M8 June 2011 Firmware – before/after | Leica BOSS You be the judge. (And please... I traded in my camera testing laboratory for a flat screen. This is more reflective of real world shooting than DxO labs... if shots of beer bottles and NyQuil co
  22. I obtained a customer-release—not pre-release/beta—M10-R and compared it side-by-side with the M10 Monochrom (hereafter referred to as the M10-M) on a test scene at high ISO values. The firmware version for both was the latest firmware currently available to the public: for the M10-R (upgraded from the initial released firmware that was pre-installed in the new camera), and for the M10-M. Methodology: all shots were taken on a tripod with a 2-second delay to minimize vibration. The same Leica 50 APO lens was used for all tests. The aperture was set to
  23. Hi. I can't find exactly this problem reported here, so apologies if it's here somewhere. During the lockdown I've been trying different kinds of home-based photography. Yesterday I was playing around with high-speed shots, dropping ice and strawberries into coloured water, that kind of thing. I've just opened the images in LR and in PS and found there is a small line across the images when shooting at ISO higher than 640. Is it some kind of banding? I don't know the ISO level where it starts to appear, I would have to do more tests to determine the tipping point. However, it
