  1. Hi There Several people have asked me about this, and so it seemed to be worth doing it! All the files were originally shot on DNG - the sharpening and noise reduction sliders in Lightroom were all zeroed. The SL2 files were opened in Photoshop and the Image size reduced without any noise reduction help. They were then exported as 100% jpg quality 12 jpg files. I've then done an XY comparison zoomed in to approximately 100% and taken a screen shot. I'll put this on to the Review thread as well, but I thought it was worth putting it up as a separate thread. As you would expect -
  2. 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: 10.20.27.20 for the M10-R (upgraded from the initial released 10.20.23.49 firmware that was pre-installed in the new camera), and 2.12.8.0 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
  3. Trying to learn how to (best) manage noise with shots in dark conditions. Your feedback would be appreciated. (Uploaded to my Google Drive original DNG and various JPGs at different stages of LR editing--file names captures what I did. Please access at your convenience.) Are the patterns that run horizontally what are commonly referred to as "banding"? Is this the best one can do with the image without further smearing details? Thx in advance. https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B9YDav4kiHL0T2IyelNubEVobUk&usp=sharing
  4. The longer I shoot digital images, the less I worry about 'noise'. Today's cameras are all good and noise is considerably lower than it ever has been. To the point I would say, that unless we are talking about extremes, for a lot of photography its no longer a big issue. In any case I am now not that bothered about a bit of shadow noise - the content of the mage is far more important. There are of course exceptions as there always will be, but in general noise is pretty much a non-issue these days. Many of the 'reviews' which major on the nuances of differences between the latest and last mode
  5. Hey guys, Just bought my first leica yesterday, I managed to find a great used Leica Minilux in good condition. My question is to everyone that owns or has owned a Minilux is, How quiet actually are they, this is my first time working with one. I think i've ruined one roll of film already because I wasn't aware the shutter was opening. Any advice would be awesome. Just so i don't ruin more film un-intentionally. Cheers everyone Will
  6. The Leica SL automatically creates a dark frame to work around the issues of noise in long exposure images. This is all well and good but it doubles exposure time. Is there a manual over ride so you can do this manually. If not why? Many thanks in advance.
  7. 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
  8. Hello all. I've owned my new Leica Q for just under 2 weeks now and I'm still getting to grips with it. This is the latest in a long line of "street photography" oriented cameras that I have owned (Leica M8.2, Leica X1, Ricoh GR, Fuji X100, Fuji X-T1), so I can't help but compare their performance - especially after all of the rave reviews that the Q has received. I've got to admit that I'm feeling a little underwhelmed so far - I'll reserve judgement for, as there is bound to be a learning curve with any new camera. One thing that has really surprised me is the amount of banding tha
  9. Hello everyone: I'm a Leica photography enthusiast from Spain, English is not my mother language, but I'll do my best. I think it's my first post here since I registered years ago, and I confess that it is not for a pleasant subject. I own a fantastic Leica M9 but for work reasons I have not used it for a couple of years. The point is that today I have charged it and used it for the first time in a long period. And I find that the photos have a very strange moire. Is it a sensor problem? It was taken with the 50mm summilux, I have also attached exif data. What you see is a zoom of 10
  10. Hi all, I'm curious if anyone has tried bulb mode with its max 60 sec exposure with their M240? I'm thinking of trying to take snapshots of my vacuum tube amps but I'm wondering if anyone who's tried it have noticed any sensor heat creeping. Is there any concern of heat damage to the sensor? Cheers.
  11. Hello all, My M8 rewind noise has been worrying me for a while now. When I click the shutter, the rewind noise in S mode is long and laboured, it almost sounds as something might if a battery is low (I have tested this on a fully charged battery). After a few minutes of use, the rewind noise sounds better. If I shoot in C mode, the rewind noise is crisp and fast, as it should be, this only happens in S mode. Does anyone know why this might be? I enquired with Leica about costs for having this services at Solms, and they informed me it would unlikely be less than $300 for a
  12. Can someone please help me? I use Lightroom 3 on a Dell 30" monitor. When I view wideangle images (24mm F3.8 / iso 160 / F5.6) dominated by clear deep blue sky I get a disturbing level of pixelation / noise where the density of the blue deepens (natural deepening). This appears as a blotchy transition in the density of the blue when viewing the full image - surprisingly it becomes much finer when viewing at 100%. I have not had a problem printing at up to A3+ size so believe the issue may be with my monitor's colour calibration. I have used Colormunki to calibrate the screen rather than lettin
  13. 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
  14. Hello all, as a pretty new M8-user I got very shocked when my M8 started making horrible noises! I will try to explain: I was taking a series of rapid photos (in S mode), when suddenly the shutter sounded like it retrackted (winded back) about 5-6 times, and the the camera died due to an empty battery. The sound was ugly and I was scared someting was broke, but with a charged battery everything now is as it should be. I told my friend, a professional Leica-user, this and he had never heard of such thing or these noises from the shutter mechanism. So I wonder, have any of you experien
  15. Hello, I'm new to this forum and this is my first posting. I am the second owner of an M8. Had a hot pixel which caused a vertical band so I sent it back to Leica NJ. The vertical band wasn't that bad but for only $175, they took care of it for me. Just got it back from Leica NJ but, now I have a strange problem. I took it out for a full day of shooting (on a sunny, cold day) and when I returned and I plugged it into my computer, I was floored. Horrible grain on most images. I thought my ISO must have switched to a super high setting on accident. I checked the EXIF on the images and i
  16. Hi, i am new to this forum and new to leica.I have a new D-lux 5 compact. I already own a Nikon D700 and some Carl Zeiss lenses. I did some test shoots with mu Leica and saw some strange things in Lightroom. See the photo: This is a 100% crop from lightroom, standard develop settings. Notice the grey pattern in the background. All of my tests have this and all the images looks unsharp. I did a reset of the camera but with no results. It is clearly no noise. Shot was taken with iso 80. Second one is a 200% crop so you can see it better. Any help please! Thanks http://www.afewimages.c
  17. Hi! I recently purchased a used Leica Q manufactured early 2018. When I try shooting in night, both "low iso + long exposure", and "high iso + short exposure" captured in DNG file shows annoying banding, and even some unwanted color points, like the images shown below. Is this a native camera issue? Or this camera sensor is defected : (
  18. Hi everyone! I own a Leica Digilux 3 and lately I have been noticing a noise even when shooting with only ISO 200, not to speak more ISO. I need the camera for work and with this amount of noise it's almost impossible to use it. Is this usual with this camera? I doubt that it was that bad when I bought it. Thoughts, anyone? Thanks.
  19. I have just bought my first Leica (Digilux 3). Anybody knows if it is normal that, once switched on, the camera makes some internal "sound", as if there was some moving element (a little electric engine or something like that)? The noise isn't loud but clearly audible. May be something linked to the AF system? All the rest of the camera seems to work perfectly. Thanks a lot in advance to who finds time to answer.
  20. Canon 5D Mk. II vs. M8 Mk. I I'l let the images speak for themselves, except to say that I'm revising my thinking about how I will use the Canon vs the M8. The Canon will become my low-light documentary camera, but not my primary studio or architectural camera, as I thought it would. The C/V 15mm is still so much better than the Canon 20 - so long as there is enough light - that the Canon's extra pixels don't count for much. OTOH, the Canon imagery @ f/2.8 and ISO 2500 (under nasty dim 1200K room lights) is pretty amazing.
