    Leica X1

    Hi There is an almost new Leica X1 for sale here in Sydney for $900. I have read lots of negative reviews of this camera but do love the look of it and the way it feels in my hand. Would appreciate some feedback from users of the X1 as other forums just bleat on about the price. Is it worth getting?
  5. Hi, when I try to photo group of people or one person, my images have a something blurred on them. Everything is good, but I feel some kind of shadow on them. So do you know any solution of settings which I need to change to have more sharpen photos? I need to picture something important for about a week, please help me. Thank you.
  6. Leica X1. Russian Orthodox Monastery near Pskov.
  7. Hey guys, Just received my used x1 frm ebay, and I just noticed that instead of the ring on the lens with lens marking (ie the front of the lens with 1.28/24 ASPH) mine is just s silver ring. Does that mean this camera has been to unauthorized service? Is it possible to get that replaced? I think the silver ring is really ugly. Thanks
  8. Newbie needing advice here.. :-) I'm trying to choose something to jump in with... X1 demo w/full warranty - $1500 X2 - $2000 Ricoh GXR + M-Mount + lens - $2500+ Used M8 + lens - $3500+ Any/all advice welcome! (BTW, Leaning towards the X1 for some reason)
  9. Two years with a X1. [Disclaimer: please don't take this post too seriously... it's just to decompress the tension immediately before the 10/05/12 event...] Please allow me to share my experience of two years with an X1. I bought my X1 in May 2010. Since then, I have had a love&hate relationship with this camera, which I realize is not an original feeling at all.* Although I'm seriously into photography (I'll have a photobook published next month) I am a "backup camera" guy. Let me explain: my "main cameras" have been what most photographers call backups. Since 2005, my cameras were a Sony DSC/R1 (which I still use), a DLUX4 (which I don't use anymore), a Leica X1 (which I use almost everyday) and a NEX 5N (that I sold recently) plus a Leica 35mm Summicron v4. I tried to sell my X1 twice, for different reasons. The first time, in the beginning of 2011, I decided that I could not support anymore that miserable, unreliable camera (...) and take the opportunity to change my (photographic) life... As I couldn't afford, or even justify the investment in an M9, I decided myself for a surrogate of it: to cut a long story short, I ended up with a NEX5+summicron 35mm v4. And I wanted to sell the X1 to finance this, but nobody made me a fair offer for it. Sudenly I gave up to sell the X1 as I realised how complementary would be a 35mm and a 50mm, fostering two very different ways to photograph.* One year passed and the 10th May fever rised. Two months ago I was attacked by a temptation to buy a second-hand M9, looking for some mad guy or girl that wanted badly to buy an M10 (or whatever M it comes/came) and was drunk enough to sell his/her M9 for less than 3500€... No way, of course (and, thinking better, rangefinding is not my way to photograph, I'm more into the Hasselblad way... that's why I ordered an NEX 7 for my Summicron...). But the 10/5 fever attacked me too and I thought it would be a good idea to upgrade... to an X2. Thus, I am trying to sell the X1 again, for the second time... Let me finish by saying that I love my X1. A lot. I hope nobody gives me enough for it... .*It has quirks: I hate when I miss a shot due to the slow AF and I hate when the image results out of focus due to focus not locked at infinity. But I still love it.*As far as accessories, my X1 is equiped with a ThumbsUp and a home-made sling. Both increase substantially the usability of the camera. The setup accomodates quite nicelly in my hand, leading to a very flexible use for different situations. I really like the feelling: right thickness, weight, size, handling.* Ah, forgot to say... it gave me, and stills gaving me, an outstanding image quality. Regards and happy 10/05/12 António. PS. If the X2 has similar form factor, a summicron or summilux, better AF, and an even better sensor... oh my...
  10. Mit der X1 immer noch ein Vergnügen! Harpa und X1 sind etwa gleich alt. Alle Bilder OOC.

  12. As I type, my D800 and lenses are at one of the big NYC photo stores waiting on an appraisal. For the most part, I use my Nikon with the Sigma 35 1.4. Love the quality, look, color, and all that. Don't love the weight, the "I'm taking a picture" and the in your face. I have an 85, 50 and old 80-200. My appraisal should net me some money. I have a good deal on an NEX 7 and i've used it a little for the last two days but not too much as I may return it. I'm not in love. Many menus, choices, and I can't seem to get that &^%& focus point where I want. I keep hitting the exposure adjustment button. I do not have large hands by any means. I like the sony but am not enthralled by it. I can get a used X1 for a bit less then the NEX 7kit, it has the focus length I like, no more lenses to buy (or go gaga over), about the only thing it needs is a snooty 1/2 case and an optical viewfinder. The X2 interests me but it is 3x the cost of a used x1. I don't think it is 3x the camera. Used is 2x. I don't shoot sports, for the most part I use it to walk around and document my life and surroundings. X1 users, let me know how and why you like yours!
  13. Here is a wish I have for a Leica X1 "V3 firmware": - pressing 2 seconds the play button activate the play function without powering On the camera, having the lens extended. Advantage: power economy, quick access to pictures, logical: as far as I to see pictures, why should the camera have extended lens. - Square format please - bigger screen loupe in manual focusing. - 50mm rectangular aid on screen with focal lenght in exif Beside that, I am so happy with my X1 !!!!
  14. I believe I have found a serious flaw and defect in my Leica X1 that I bought new four months ago. Every image taken of a distance scene, like a vista, has soft focus regardless of ISO, shutter speed or aperture. It's also that way regardless of auto-focus or manual set to infinity. Soft images. Additionally, every image is approximately one stop over exposed. I shoot everything in DNG. Ever since getting my Leica X1, I have found that images require extensive work in Adobe Lightroom. Anyone have any thoughts or similar experiences? This Leica X1 is too much aggravation for a Leica regardless of price.

  16. Folks, After much reading and comparison to similar models and knowing how much I love my D-Lux5, I am planning to buy an X1 next week. Now, I have taken my D-Lux5 around the world and it's been flawless for the past 9 months of use. No issues. Should I be worried about the reliability of the X1? I have heard some reports of flash sticking. Are there other issues? Any major concerns? Planning to take it on a trip to London in few weeks... Thanks for the thoughts!
  17. Since a few years m7 has been my "first" camera. Lenses: 12mm (CV) + 35 cron asph + 50 cron + 75 cv F2,5) . When travelling I was used to have a Nikon FM2 (with 50mm F 1,4) as back up. Reason of this choice was that with the 50mm I can focus up to 30 cm for details. Most of time leaving one camera in hotel an going out with one lens on the camera + 1 lens in the pocket depending on the daily expectations about what to shoot. Sometimes iso 100 in one camera and 400 in the other. Mostly B&W. Last winter I bought my first digital camera and I went for the x1, because of the sensor, OVF and the 35 equivalent lens (35 is the lens I use 70% of times on the m7). Last week I went for a short holiday in south germany and after a long thinking I decided to take with me the m7 (35-50-75) and the x1. Idea was to have a relaxing holiday and taking some pictures, not to make a journey in order to take "the best photo of my life". The idea was to use the m7 with an iso 100 B&W film and the x1 for some family color snaps and for the need of higher iso. Positive points (IMHO) : I appreciated many times the possibility to set the x1 at 800/1.600 iso and shoot in low light situation, which I could not have done with the m7 (100 iso in it). In difficult light situations I could chimp. But what surprised me was the fact that I almost never used the m7 because "easier" just to set to 100 iso the x1 and take pictures. Even if I had the m7 with me all the time! It seems me that having a digital camera beside the film one causes a kind of "laziness" which forces me to work with it. I do not like to go in direction of a film versus digital old annoying story, but I'm just curious if the members here who own both a film M and a digital M are using them in the same occasion. I think in future when holiday is the main point to use just the x1, if I have a serious project in mind to use again the film combo M7+FM2. Any comment about ? thanks and sorry for long post, robert PS: I am not sure if this had to be posted in the x1 forum or in film forum, it seems me here could be of more interest.

    Our golden retriever dog likes his comfort during early morning sunshine indoors. (Leica X1)
  19. seit ca. 8 Wochen bin ich nun im Besitz der X1 in schwarz. Man muss sich natürlich an die Festbrennweite erst mal gewöhnen. Zum mitnehmen in einer großen Jackentasche ist sie noch geeignet und mit dem auto Objektivdeckel mit den 3 Klappen auch schnell einsatzbereit. Den Adaptertubus für eine Sonnenblende und 49mm Filter habe ich mir als erstes zugelegt.Damit ist sie natürlich nicht mehr Jackentauglich, aber ich nehme den Tubus dann einfach ab. Mit der Bildqualität war ich am Anfang nicht sehr zufrieden (RAW Bilder mit CS5 bearbeitet). Aber bei einem Vergleich mit meiner Pentax K-7 hatte die X1 doch einen kleinen Vorteil. Die Einstellrädchen verstellen sich leider schnell wenn man die X1 in die Tasche steckt. Ansonsten bin ich sehr zufrieden mit der kleinen schwarzen. Heute habe ich mal meinen Pentax Blitz auf die X1 gesteckt und siehe da der geht bis 1/250s hervorragend. TTL geht leider nicht aber bei Blitz stelle eh ich alles von Hand ein. Auch die Funkauslöser für die Pentax sind mit der X1 kompatibel. Da hier sowieso alle Blitze im M-Modus arbeiten kann ich mehrere Blitze zugleich auslösen. Auch hier blitzt alles noch mit 1/250s. Also kann ich meine vorhandenen Blitze für Pentax und Leica X1 nutzen. In der Colorfoto hat die X1 38 Punkte bei ISO 100 in der Bildqualität. Cannon 5D Mark II nur 36,5 und Nikon D300s nur 31,5. Ob das mal stimmt. Habe keine der beiden Kameras aber vielleicht kann ein Leser das bestätigen oder auch nicht.

    my music

    from a short series about the music of my summer. Shot with a Leica x1. More images here, in my blog. Please feel free to comment.
  21. The hotshoe on my X1 is so tight that I practically have to force the Leica finder in each time I want to mount it. Taking it out from the hotshoe is another hassle. It is impossible to mount any of the flashgun that I have to the hotshoe. Does anybody else have the same problem? Any suggestion how I can 'loosen' it a bit? Thanks.
  22. I am interested in an X-1, but I have some questions. 1- I saw on the web that a version of L'room 3 was announced about December 20, 2011. Is this different from L'room 3, no suffix? Or did I read the date wrong? If there is something new on the block, will the Leica d'load be for this latest version? If the 3.6 moniker is really for the same version as 3, then never mind. I know that not much time has elapsed since then, but if anyone knows, it would be nice. 2- I have a Lumix FZ 35 and have been disappointed in the IQ - noisy at any ISO over 200, and not great even at 100. Is this due to the lens or the sensors? Does anyone have any experience in this? I have read a good deal of praise for the X-1 at higher ISO's, which would make (any necessary) cropping and enlarging more productive even with the fixed focal length of the X-1. And the menus of the Lumix drive me crazy. I find myself not using the camera much. 3- I used to have a IIIg screw mount with a 50mm summicron. I know that processing counts for a lot these days, but how does the IQ of the X-1 compare with the summicron, given that the print processing is reasonably competent? Thanks in advance for any information.
  23. Hallo Zusammen, brauche kurz Euer Know-How. Ich kriege meine X1 i.M. nicht dazu, Aufnahmeserien zu machen. Woran könnte das liegen? Hintergrund: - Hauptschalter steht auf C - Frequenz auf 2 B/s (alternativ auch 3 B/s) - Kein Blitz - Kein DNG (ist auf JPEG extra fein - Alternativ JPEG fein - eingestellt) - Keine Aufnahmen über 1/60er Verschlusszeit - Sonst zu Testzwecken erstmal alles zurück auf "Standard" gestellt Trotzdem macht er immer nur EIN Bild! Bin für jeden Tip dankbar CU TheStig

    Ring flash????

    Hello... I have just order a Leica X1, it will be my first Leica and I am very excited! The X1 seemed like the best place to start. It will be replacing my very large and heavy Nikon D700 which I found lacked any kind of freedom. My question is...I love ring flashes but cant find any that are linked to the use of this beautiful little camera. Will I have to make my own???? x
