  1. Love the new MJ2 cage by Lockcircle! How do you guys use your camera for video shooting?
  2. Hi guys, could someone please help me to understand the lens designations written on the lens by Leica? Example: I had an SL, now have an SL2. With the IBIS I wanted to try some different lenses available. So I purchased a TL VE 55-135mm zoom lens. Now I realize this lens was made for the TL or CL camera, which is an APS-C body. So, the lens has embossed on it: "55-135" and of course on the box and paperwork. When you look at the description of the lens, say online at B&H, it says: "35mm equivalent of 80-200mm". So I'm assuming they mean on a 'cropped' body of a TL or CL, it's an 80-200mm? If so, why is it labeled 55-135mm? When I use it on my SL2 it automatically goes to APS-C mode, which I also understand, and the images are great. But what am I getting? A 55-135mm focal length, or an 80-200mm FL? I'm only interested in what it actually is on an SL2? If it is indeed, 80-200mm, why do they even designate the lens as: "55-135mm". When is it a 55-135mm lens? I'm confused on that. Any help appreciated and sorry if this is a dumb question, I just don't understand it? Thanks! Robert E
  3. Hello Leica friends, I wanted to bring to your attentions some issues I’m having with the Leica SL2.. I have bought this camera mainly for Video shooting as I use M10P and M6 for photos. I loved using my M lenses on the SL system and when the SL2 was finally announced I thought it was time to get one. I tested every shooting mode and I have to say that the camera has received some big improvements compared to the previous 601. The Ibis is very accurate and in HLG mode the dinamic range is quite impressive. Didn’t like the LLog though, very noisy and difficult to handle. And the internal 4K 60fps is just useless for aliasing and moire (you must use an external recorder if you want to get a decent file, when the Panasonic S1H is very clean in the same mode). I also use for my work Alexa Mini LF and smaller bodies such as the Z-Cam F6, this last camera has a nice M mount with positive lock which enables me to use all my Leica M lenses. So why I got a SL2? The main reason is to be able to carry it everywhere, in a small backpack with a couple of lenses, other than on set for work. Now, the files produced by this camera should be H265(?).. but the files won’t play in my machines. The finder doesn’t show any preview, QuickTime doesn’t read them. VLC plays only the first 3 frames (18cores IMac Pro).. imagine you shoot 300 clips and you need to conform them every time to Prores in order to just see what you have shot. I remember I bought my SL2 in Shanghai the day it came out and after 2 days shooting around I just switched to my small Zcam as I had to open at every import FCPX or Premiere and create a project just to watch my daily footage and after delete it. So my question: having a playable file out of camera (internal recording) is Asking too much? Another big limitation is the focus magnifier that doesn’t work while recording. With an Atomos Ninja V the resolution helps but as I said.. why I can’t enjoy this camera as it is? I’ve also got multiples hot pixels, partially removed by the internal NR.. but still present. Last, a few times I’ve used an L mount lens... the camera can’t handle video recording for more than 10 min with a fully charged battery. I won’t give up with this camera as I strongly believe a new firmware will fix these problems. what do you guys think?
  4. I have had my SL2 for a couple of months and have now noticed what seems to be dust in the viewfinder. I say in the EVF because it does not show in the LCD; also, I have checked the sensor, lenses, taken test shots against a white background, checked the sensor with a loupe (white and red light) and can't seem to find where it is. I have also cleaned the EVF as well. This so called "dust speck" does not show in any images either. Furthermore, the dust speck is black and seems relatively sharp when seen in the EVF. I know this may be minor but it is a nuisance nonetheless, as I am now aware and my eye immediately is drawn to this black speck of dust thus causing distraction with my composition. Has anyone experienced something similar? What advise and/or troubleshooting recommendation could you offer? Thanks in advance! Lorenzo

  8. Hamburg - Elbbrücken SL-II+ 16-35
  9. Hi, I am in the fortunate position of travelling to South Africa (near Cape Town). Photography is not the purpose of the trip but it would be ‘rude’ not to take a camera. I have a cl, which I am excited about. It is a recent purchase with the kit 18mm lens. It replaces my Fuji x100t which I really enjoyed but I wanted to be able to change lens’ and I preferred the cl to Fuji x-pro 3. i just like having a camera in my jacket pocket, hence the 18mm. Physical, it makes the cl very similar to the X-100 series. Now for the questions: Is the 23 Summicron significantly better quality than the 18mm (I cant find the physical length lens so will pop into shop to see)? Is the APO-VARIO-ELMAR-TL 55-135MM considered to have a ‘good’ IQ? Should I be looking at other L-Mount lens? I have a SL2 and the 35mm Summicron, the 24-90 and an underused Sigma 14-24, but I would rather travel with something more compact and in line with the cl. The photography I like is mainly landscape but of course, a bit of street and social photography too. Thank you for your help in advance.
  10. Hi, i am looking for some advice. I enjoy landscape / cityscape / street photography (I have a cl for street, it replaced my Fuji x-100t). I recently moved from Canon to the SL2. Still at the foothills of the learning curve. I have the 24-90 on the camera most of the time. I also have the Summicron 35 and the Sigma 14-24. I am swallowing hard at the cost of the 90-280 especially as I have a Mark I Canon 100-400. Now for the questions: Does anyone use canon’s Mark I 100-400 on the SL2? Are there alternatives which people could recommend which would take me up to around the 300mm maybe 400mm? Does not have to be a zoom. Sorry for the long question and thank you in advance

  12. The S1R is said to autofocus down to -6 EV. Is SL2 capable of this? I would guess so due to the almost same sensor...but I can not find any evidence.
  13. I am using an S1R as my backup to my SL2. I cannot get the official sl2 cable release therefore my question is : can I use the cable release from my S1R which has a thinner body with the SL2 with a simple adapter as they both have the same number of contacts. Using the phone app is not the right solution for me because of the small time delay trying to shoot at moving birds in a nest.
  14. Hallo an Alle, ich versuche herauszufinden, ob ich etwas falsch verstehe: wenn ich der SL2 im Interval Shooting-Modus sage, sie soll z.B. alle 15 Sekunden ein Bild nehmen und die Verschlusszeit ist ebenfalls 15 Sekunden (manuell eingestellt), dann kriege ich teilweise willkürliche Resultate was die Anzahl der Bilder angeht. Ich nutze dieses um Sterne zu fotografieren - möchte also z.B. 300 Bilder oder mehr aufnehmen. Allerdings habe ich es bisher nur einmal geschafft, dass die SL2 tatsächlich die angegebene Anzahl von Bilder aufgenommen hat - manchmal nimmt sie 30 auf, manchmal eine andere Anzahl. (Zur Info: Long Exposure Noise Reduction = Aus). An der Batterie kann dieses bei voller Aufladung ja nicht liegen - die Kamera ist ja auch danach noch einsetzbar. Ich verstehe nicht, ob ich hier die Einstellungen falsch verstehe - ich finde auch keine Konstante, sodass ich den Fehler finden kann. Gibt es diesbezüglich bereits Erfahrungen? Danke im voraus!
  15. Moin in die Runde, wer kann mir erklären, wie das bei der SL2 jetzt mit den Geo-Daten funktioniert? Das bei der SL ein kleiner Mangelpunkt existierte ist bekannt und in der Vergangenheit hier im Forum abgehandelt worden. Leica hat daraus gelernt und bei der SL2 den GPS gar nicht mehr integriert, damit schon einmal "mein Generve" abgestellt. Habe ich verstanden und ist auch soweit ok. Aber wie funktioniert das jetzt für Outdoor-Nutzer in der Praxis mit der SL2. Habe ich das richtig verstanden: Ein Handy mit GPS immer so dabei haben, dass es immer GPS-Empfang hat, also nicht tief im Rucksack Immer eine WLAN oder BT Verbindung mit der SL2 halten (lutscht bei beiden Geräten ordentlich Akku meine ich) Werden die Daten nur bei Auslösen mit dem Handy übernommen, oder auch beim Auslösen mit der SL2? Oder werden die Daten nur beim Übertragen von der SL2 auf das Handy, mittels Leica-App übernommen, wenn ich nicht Übertragen möchte, sind keine Daten in den DNGs oder JPGs? Bei DNG-Übertragung mittels Leica-App muss man das jährliche Abo für knapp 60.- abschließen, finde ich auch eher beschämend. Wer hat das mit der SL2 schon gemacht und kann mich "entdummen"? Viele Grüße Buggi
  16. I'm finding myself being asked to shoot a number of upcoming events in the coming months where a quiet shutter is requisite. Given the nature of the work, I'm contemplating if it might not be worthwhile to get a second L body. As the S1 is down to $2K at the moment, I've begin considering if that it might be worthwhile compliment to the SL2. I've been pleasantly surprised by how quiet the is SL2, so I am now wondering if the Pano's sound is similarly muted or if its a clacker. Somewhat of a deal breaker if it's the latter. Anyone with both?
  17. Had the SL for a few years - really happy with it, great IQ. Don’t like the size and weight so tend to use it with ZEISS ZM lenses. Thinking of switching to SL2.. Attractions for me: 1. IBIS for using M (or ZM) lenses. 2. Improved EVF. 3. Larger, higher res rear panel. 4 Quick view menu. 5. Grip and restyling of body. Things putting me off - only 1: 1. I don’t need 47mp. So.....thinking I could shoot at Medium resolution setting (which is 24mp) and also use TL lenses (to manage the size and weight concern) to get 20mp files. I would use 47mp when the image demands it - so 24 as a go to size (street, family etc) and 47 for specific occasions (landscapes etc). I know that concerns on high ISO won’t be addressed by shooting at lower res (due to pixel density). Anyone else thinking like this? Thanks.
  18. I recently shot a project in window light 1600 ISO f/2 with the 35 Summicron. I saw a wide and unexpected variation in the DNG files shot to shot. I experimented with different metering options combined with different focus methods, where understandably there will be variation in results. However setting manual exposure (here) 1/320 f/2 with zero compensation set I saw a large difference in the results (no visible change in the available light). The EXIF reports the settings unchanged shot to shot but the results are hugely different. These shots 3 seconds apart. I hadn't seen this in a previous project with similar conditions. I don't think I have made some basic error but (and I am a couple of thousand frames in with the SL2 so far) but I can't account for this so suggest away. My only speculation is about which shutter mode was operating (in hybrid). Any suggestions/comments on a possible cause would be welcome. No there was no solar eclipse or visible change in the light from window.
  19. I have just seen that it is now possible to register the SL2 in the owners area of Leica's website When I did that I found that there are two versions of the production current, one for E, U JP, CH and one called ROW. (Rest of World???) Mine is ROW and the serial numbers are different for each version' I have no idea what the differences are. Possibly it may account for what seem to be some small functions differences I have read referred to in the Forum here. I don't seem to be able to select different Profiles for example, whereas I have read that others can. Or that may be be error on my part. My SL2 is from an authorised Australian dealer and one of the first shipment available here I think. I had thought that Australian stock came via Singapore for whatever that is worth. I never got the correct cable with AUS plug for the charger. It is a standard figure 8 lead though.
  20. Hello All, I've been trying to reach out to Leica about an issue I'm finding with the Leica FOTOS app for iPad but no responses. I'm able to connect my SL2 to my iPad Pro with the FOTOS app but getting a very soft image when viewing in the Remote mode. The library thumbnails look soft too. I do get nice clean images when I open up an image already captured. Maybe I'm missing something? I tried with both of my SL2s and no luck. It would be a nice app to use on some photoshoots. Only other issue is that it doesn't support 2 card slots so a backup not happening when using the app. Thanks, Paul
  21. Hi everyone, I´ve been looking for a good fit L-bracket for the SL2 lately and tried some options. I'd thought I´d share my findings with some pictures (below) to maybe help anyone out who's looking for an L-bracket for the SL2. The options I´ve tried are: Kirk ULB-1 3 Legged Thing Ellie Markins PV 100 & LV 170 For me personally I decided that the Markins is the best fit. It is also the lightest and generally has the smallest footprint thanks to the fact that it is possible to have the bracket part adjusted for a snug fit to the side of the camera. Obviously one cannot access any of the ports with the bracket mounted like that, but I don't usually need to. Obviously the Markins is also easily adjusted to extend the bracket part so that the ports are accessible. The Kirk comes in second for me, what I don't like about it on the SL2 is that the bottom main screw for the tripod socket is only adjustable "sideways" and the preset positions are not a good fit for the SL2´s tripod screw that is relatively far towards the back of the camera. Also the bracket part is not adjustable in distance to the body. However, with it mounted it is possible to still easily open the bottom port flap to access the USB-C port for example for charging. The 3 Legged Thing gave me a "gimmicky" impression. It felt a bit wobbly, probably because of the gap in the bracket part (that obviously also has advantages for cable management, I don't need this though). It also comes fairly close to the strap lugs and could cause issues when using a strap. Hope this helps anyone looking for an L-Bracket for their SL2. On a side note, I'm not a big fan of the RRS way of designing brackets for the SL range. They make an already large camera even larger and are also heavier than the other options. However, once they come out with their SL2 version I´ll probably have a second look... I also have some more pictures with different perspectives, let me know if you're interested (didn't want to clutter the thread too much)😀
  22. Whenever I remove my SL2 battery, I lose all language, app, date and time settings, etc., and I'm forced to set them each time I remove the battery. Has anyone experienced this? I'm now charging with the usb-c port, but would like to figure this one out...... Cheers, Scott
  23. Tethering with Leica Image Shuttle for SL2 don't work after updating from Catalina 10.15.1 to 10.15.2. Any fix? /Keen
  24. Hate to say the SL2 video capabilities are seriously flawed at 4K recording and C4K. See the picture below. The main issues I ran into during a full day of video use (With the 50 APO SL and 35/1.2 Art): 1. 4K recording can only occur for 5 minutes or less on a full battery before error message “battery level too low for 4K recording”. (Changed batteries and encountered same issue so it’s not the battery) 2. C4K recording restricts AF usage, limited to only manual focus with the Sigma 35/1.2. 3. All AF capabilities during recording are very slow to focus, unable to switch faces during face/body detection (in the rare case it captures a face), the AF box may at times capture 2-3 bodies and choose to “average” the focus distance. 4. No compressed 4K recording at 50mbps or less. 5. Video Focus peaking’s highlighted/colored areas do not match still focus peaking highlighted areas. 6. No way to magnify the video during capture to check focus. Unfortunately the error message for battery doesn’t show up until 30 seconds after you hit record video. So it ruined a nice Xmas morning moment with the family, when I set up the tripod, hit record, then joined the wife/baby. 5 minutes later, I check the camera and only 30 seconds or less were recorded and the moment gone. Last year my A7r3 recorded 4K full width of sensor till the battery went to 0%. AF easily moved from eye to eye of subjects, focus peaking was accurate and easily seen, and it held tons of video in a UHS-1 SD Card. For a camera that touts it video recording, my iPhone did better (actually much better), and then I had to grab my xpro3 for the rest of the day. how did Leica release a camera with such terrible firmware?? ASIDE from video, just off the top of my head, I recall: terrible accuracy and reliability issues with AF-c tracking, complete lack of eye-AF all together, blurry EVF view in magnified mode for AF-s and manual focus, no AF-s abilities at all while in magnified live view, terrible reliability with tethering (can’t tether to an iPad with two SD cards in the camera due to a firmware bug), nonlinear focusing in manual focus on the Summicron SL lenses. That’s all I encountered, im sure there’s more to report. I haven’t encountered a small percentage of such obvious firmware issues with the xpro3, a7r3, A7r4, Nikon z7, or gfx50r.
  25. Hey everyone. I buy new sl (2) . My sl2 is version ‘ROW’ . What’s different version ( EU, JP, US ) ?????
