  1. Hi, with the delayed CL2 anyone tought to buy a Panasonic S5? Lens are compatible and you get IBIS and even a full frame in a comparable compact package.. More Panasonic seems a "low brand" Leica because they share more than the lens: quality of photos should be high
  2. Hi everyone, I'm currently working on a project to once and for all fix the analogue Leica CL's broken take up spool problem, by 3D printing them. I've ran a roll through mine with version 2 of the spool and it works pretty good, but i'm working on version 3 which should be better still - I got the dimensions slightly wrong on this one - it's too short. How many of you CL owners would be interested in buying such an item? They'd cost around £20 and be sold through eBay all said and done, and I'd make a video showing how to take apart the CL and install them, as well as reassem
  3. I would like to share my experience with the Leica CL after one year of use. The first idea was to find a replacement for my Canon 6D after 6 years of loyal service. Why change to a Leica CL, you ask? - To gain in size and weight and really take my camera everywhere. - to benefit from EVF technology - to make full use of the lenses of my Leica T, which I love but is not the most efficient camera available. - to use my M lenses much more easily than with the T. - to finally have a single ecosystem The observation is simple: the CL is an excellent daily camera especi
  4. I'm already using a 35/1.4 Summilux-TL ASPH on a Leica SL2, but I'd like a much lighter load around my neck. (As I write this, I'm still recovering from being too stiff to turn my head from side to side or tilt it back without neck and shoulder pain.) I'm considering purchasing a used Leica CL and used Vario-Elmarit-TL 55-135mm f/3.5-4.5. - Does the CL track just human faces, or will it track animal faces too? - Does the CL allow you to choose the initial AF point? - How well does the CL track moving faces at f/4.5 - does it lose focus with a subject moving towards you erratical
  5. I am looking for an L-Bracket, with Arca Swiss compatibility, for use with my Leica CL camera. Occasionally it will be used with tele-zoom lenses, but mostly with smaller lenses. There are a few threads on this subject in the forum, dealing specifically with bigger cameras, but none that I could find relevant to the CL. Googling brings up a lot of brand-specific solutions; a few claim to be universal. I would welcome any reports from members of this forum, of user experience with such a device, and recommendations. Thank you.
  6. Hi, Maybe the future of the CL and TL2 will be the same sensor of the Sony alpha 7C: compact camera, full frame and 24 MP? There are also rumors of an SL2-S with this specs so it can be the end of the CL and TL lineup? Currently I have a T and I'm worried if upgrade to a TL2 for Black Friday or wait.. I will be happy to uprade for the extra megapixels of the TL2 but there are some cons for the fact that with the same sensor the pixels are smaller? Happy if anyone can help with my decision
  7. You Tube VideoHello everyone! I am back with another mod. This time I converted my Leica CL into a full spectrum camera to use it for infrared photography. Here is a time-lapse video. I will soon post some photos from the camera. Hope you like it. Video
  8. I have a Voigtlander 35mm 1.2 Mk III lens fitted on my CL with the M-L adaptor. I set the lens detection to auto, in the menu, but I'm not convinced it is recognised as the shutter speed set seems too low. The lens is not in the dropdown menu as those are all Leica lenses. The photos look OK in Capture One, but I would like to check that I've picked the right settings for the camera to recognise the lens. Any ideas?
  9. I just purchased a CL (coming from a Nikon 35mm film system) and am looking for a good starting point for setting up profiles. I've seen reference to Jono's recommendations but for the life of me cannot locate the actual settings. Any suggestions here?
  10. Hi, I bought a ex cl on ebay. working fine. only after a roll of film almost lost the rewind. Very loose, coming off. I realize this is a 40 yo, + camera. wondered if there is a fix for this, or do i have to send it in for a cla? Any advise appreciated. richard
  11. Hey gang - wondering if anyone else out there is having the same issue I am presently facing in trying to enable some camera's capture assistance features on my Leica CL? I'm presently using Camera Firmware Version 2.2. Here's the items within the Capture Assistants section of the menu and a rundown of the functionality I 'have/don't have' for each: Grid Setup - Working, no issues here. Clipping - Does not display. Horizon - Does not display (this is the function that I'd really like to enable) Histogram - Does not display. Troubleshooting so far: Disable
  12. Is there any setting that would show what Leica CL User Profile is set to on the LCD screen rather than having to menu dive. Thank you. Cheers, Terry
  13. It's been a long time since I've posted. But here's a shot from a recent trip to Turkey. For this trip —six weeks in Europe, with stops in Poland, Spain, and Turkey— I left behind my M240 and decided to only travel with the CL and the 18-56mm lens (I also brought my Voigtlander f1.1 M lens, but I never put it on the CL). While my first thought was to just travel with the M240 —I go back and forth on the idea of selling the CL and the two lenses I have for it, the 18-56mm and the 55-135mm— I decided to see if I could live with just the CL. I definitely missed my M, but I have to say that I kind
  14. Brand new option for CL with firmware 3.1 : always ON touch focus. Such as found with the Q2. Is a total mess with the CL. The CL screen is to close to the palm. And it always registers new focus point at the far upper or lower right corners. Way worst than wandering focus point. It makes the CL almost unusable !
  15. Hello everyone, I have just now added a Leica CL to my Leica SL kit, using R, M and L lenses. I used the "Search" function of the forum, but came up empty. The CL manual states that the camera accepts UHS-2 SD cards (as it must!) but does it actually use the increased throughput of the UHS-2 cards? Thanks in advance. Guy
  16. Hi all, I am retiring in two months from my long career as a nuclear engineer, and treated myself to some quality equipment to reconnect to my old love of photography. I bought my first camera, a Minolta XGM after I graduated from college in 1982. Used the heck out of that thing, but ultimately replaced it with the Minolta Maxim 7000. I loved the whole auto focus and auto film advance, lol, and even started a weekend wedding business and developed the film myself. Shooting weddings ultimately paid for all my gear, yee ha! But then I had kids, and I set my cameras down except for fami
  17. Hi, I'm interesting in new Ricoh GR III recently, and I just know that it has a so called "Snap Focus" mode, I wonder is there a way to let CL do that? I've tried setting the Right Wheel Button to Focus Mode and it's fine, but when I switched to AF and focus to shoot, then switched back to MF, I had to refocus the manual focus ring to the focus distance I was set. Is there a way to let CL remember my pre-setted focus distance when switch between AF and MF?
  18. Can anyone advise of a wide angle for the cl ? Via adapters?
  19. Help! I changed the SD card in my CL. It felt a bit solid as I pushed, so tried to take it out again. No luck. It’s stuck. On the plus side, it is working. But that’s not really the point! Has this happened to anyone else? Easy solution possible?
  20. To minimize the changing of lenses, thinking of a "second CL body"... although from reading many other reviews and user comments, the CL could have some improvements... Thinking how long before Leica may come out with a new "CL-2" ... (somewhat like the "Q2" now replaced the "Q") ?
  21. Has anyone experimented with mounting the 28PC R lens on the CL with the R adapter? While the crop makes it say 42mm equivalent, would it also have extended shift due to the smaller sensor? I think it shifts some 12mm, and that might be pretty interesting.
  22. Has anyone used Auto-ISO enough to note whether the CL exhibits a stock preference to either shutter speed or ISO speed, or is it so damn smart it automagically knows which you would wish to be quicker? For example, when moving from indoor to strong sunlight and back again, setting at ISO max 6400, with a shutter minimum of 1/60s in AP mode you might expect sharp images with manageable noise all the time, but is it truly pot luck shot to shot which variable the camera changes to correct exposure? Is it true to say the function produces consistent results with only a "short range" set
  23. Greetings! Anyone tried to use the little flash unique that comes with the Leica D-Lux 7 package on a Leica CL body? Would that be compatible? (just for fill flash purpose)
  24. My CL didn't switch automatically between LCD and EVF any more, so I sent it in. As it turned out, the eye-sensor had shifted. Given that the camera just returned from a trip through Tanzania in rather adverse conditions, it was not pristine to put it mildly when sent in and it had received a couple of shrewd knocks, so it came as no surprise that Leica refused guaranty. I did protest gently, but success could not be expected. Anyway, the estimate came to 375 Euro, which I of course accepted. However, just now, the camera was evidently opened up for repair and CS revised the cost to 1
  25. I've had my CL for a year now. That's a long time for me to keep a camera. It's been all over the place with me, and I've put together a nice little kit with the 23, 18-56 and 55-135 which work very nicely together indeed. I've written up my thoughts, plus also the pros and cons versus the M10 (which I sold after I bought the CL). Enjoy - lots of pics if you don't like reading 🙂 http://tobinators.com/blog/2018/11/gear-and-kit/leica-cl-lenses-1-year-on/
