  1. 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 face
  2. Die hauptsächliche Frage steht im Titel. Außerdem würde mich noch interessieren ob man genau wie bei der SL2 auch in Cinema 4K im crop Modus aufnehmen kann für mehr Zoom. Der Grund für die Fragen ist ich bin mit der SL2 und dem 24-90 sehr zufrieden aber hätte gerne was leichteres zum wandern. Hatte zuerst an das CL 18mm gedacht aber ohne Wetter Schutz mach ich mir da im Gebirge sorgen speziell da ich gerne auch im bei regnerischen Wetter Filme.
  3. Hi all, I've noticed there isn't a dedicated thread for editing L-Log footage, so I will begin one here. I realize that colouring and re-touching video is a very subjective field, but I wanted to see how others work within Leica's limited literature surrounding post-production in video. I've just updated my Atomos Ninja V to the latest firmware, which now allows for L-Log recording from leica (the past year with the SL2 was a little tedious working with both internally and externally recorded video footage). Now, with this update, BT2020 seems a lot nicer. I've just done my first vid
  4. To Steve and all the rest on Leica Forum: Steve, what do you think? You mentioned that you went the the Cannes film festival with some form of movie if I remember correctly. So could a person adapt the old Leica-M lenses and make a film using the SL2-S? I don't care about super fast & easy professional lens and body use myself, only wondering if with a little extra effort could it be reasonably done? I have to convince my cinematographer friend to do this so any comment you have will interest me. Generally, myself, as someone who went to film school ye
  5. Hi I use my SL mostly, if not to say exclusively, for photography. Mostly portraits. I don't know much about video. So now we got a new horse and I want ocasionally make some short clips. My first attempts with AF were a failure, I don't know if it's me or the camera (I think it's me). So what AF-settings would you suggest to start with? The set are four horses, two all black (seems impossible to focus them in AFc without hunting AF) which should be captured in the movement. Any idea? thank you!
  6. https://vimeo.com/208254533 A short video clip I made on SL with Summarit 35/2.4 in L-log and graded in FCP X as Arri Log C footage. Wanted to finally see what can be done with those L-log files. Not bad results, looks really promising. Anyone here has any experience with making films on SL? How do you capture the footage, how do you colour grade later? What LUT do you use? I've looked at buying some extra LUT loaders and use some custom LUTs but decided that it's not really needed. I can work with what's in the Apple Final Cut Pro X quite effectively it seems. How about you?
  7. I've started a photography channel, "Magic of Light" on YouTube because it's the audio-visual age. I really love writing about cameras and photography (and will continue to do so), but when an opportunity to set up a production team doing video was there, I grabbed it. So I will be doing two broadcasts a week. The new one is "What is White Balance". So enjoy, and subscribe to the channel if you like it! http://www.magicoflight.tv/watch?v=-vHtnQPhhZs
  8. So you are using the m240 as a travel camera. and you are sitting on the beach sipping wine and listening to the waves on Lake Nyassa. Suddenly the night peace is broken. What would you do without your Summilux 24 and Video? https://youtu.be/_m5ckWSAzB8 https://youtu.be/xRXkRqBlBbQ
  9. Hi, Anybody knows how can take video more than 4GB by a M240? My camera stops recording video after 4GB, and it makes problem when I am recording an interview. Thanks,
  10. Im starting a clean thread for video testing per several requests. Today I received a early version of the new SL to PL adapter. I have shot a very quick color test in LOG mode with a Shogun Recorder via HDMI. A few quick observations follow. I will try to do some more extensive and better planned testing next week. For now consider this a quickie SL-PL Adapter: Very simple and well made dumb adapter. Plain jane, offers no data...just a simple bayonet adapter directly from the SL's T mount to a PL bayonet mount. Securely locks to SL. 4K Recording: 1- 4K is limited to a APS-C cro
  11. Video journalist Morten Albek has been testing the Leica SL for video and have written a guest article at overgaard.dk Enjoy! "The Leica SL Video Experience"
  12. Here's a quick guide to set up the VIDEO on the Leica SL Basic Menu Settinghttp://www.overgaard.dk/Leica-Camera-Typ-601-page-3-Video-Journalist-Morten-Albek-reviews-the-Leica-SL-for-video.html# Menu settings on the Leica SL for Videos on the Leica SL
  13. Here is a short but interesting video look into the production process of the M10 camera:
  14. Today I found out that there is NO manual exposure control when in video mode!? I could not believe my eyes! It must have been left out by mistake, since this is an absolute minimum for even slightly above amateur level video's. I am sure that some of you don't care because you are solely using the Q as a photographic tool, but it is useless if you also want to use it for video. If they would at least announce that will fix this in a firmware update I would already be happy and still keep the Q, but if not… They should have just completely left the video option out. So strange! If anyone h
  15. I've launched my first video review of the Leica M10 before the article series starts. I'll get into more on the sensor, ISO, comparison to Fuji and more in the following videos and articles. Enjoy! Leica M10 Video Reviews by Thorsten Overgaard
  16. I took a new (and my first) Leica CL to Europe this summer and recorded some video. Playback in the camera showed skipping every 15 seconds or so. How do I figure out if this is an issue with my memory card, the settings I used for the video capture, or something else? I do not own video editing s/w and was hoping to just post the videos as is on social media, but won't do so because of the quality I got. I ended up using my iPhone instead for video on the trip . I was using a SanDisk Extreme PRO 95 Mb/s SDXC card with a little 3 inside of a U and a 10 in a circle on it.
  17. Hello All, I shot MOV videos with my M-P 240 and some of the files got corrupted. I absolutely *MUST* restore these files. I tried the commonly found free techniques (QuickTime, VLC). (Unsurprisingly), Most of the paid software restoration tools out there already claimed that they don't take Leica in charge as each brand and model have their own MOV file structure. I have spent time with their support team in live chats confirming this. Based on my files sizes (ranging 640 MB to 4 GB), I still have hope. Data definitely exists, but it's only a matter of finding the right r
  18. At the end of November my son traded in his beloved M9 at the Berlin Leica store, and upgraded to a factory fresh, new M10. They gave him a generous trade-in allowance and he loves the M10 after 4 weeks of light use. Since the M10 has LiveView with a real-time video processor, he wonders - does the M10 have the necessary hardware and software to do video, if a firmware update was provided? I understand there would be the need for software to create a standard video format output.
  19. Does anyone know the 4k recording bit rate? I’m hoping it’s over 100mbps. Can’t find anything in the specs.... thx!
  20. I’m curious what settings you all use for video on the Q2, 4K 30 FPS or 4K 24 FPS Cinematic and what video style?
  21. Greetings Folks, Wanted to share my first short film shot entirely on the Leica M (Type 240): Cheers, Edmond
  22. Anyone shoot a video on their M240 while riding a train. I'm taking a Vacation by Rail trip later in the year and interested in trying video. The M doesn't have stabilization, so how good a video can be shot while moving? Any tips? Thanks.
  23. Greetings Folks, Thought to share a bit of fun; a video portrait. This was shot with just the bare M 240 (no rig, supports etc) and a 1959 Leitz 50mm Summilux: Maya Coffee Break - Leica M (Type 240) Video Portrait | Flickr - Photo Sharing! Perhaps it will inspire a few to try the video mode? Short and fun clips with simple editing. Cheers, Edmond
  24. Greetings Folks, Very happy to announce that my first short film shot on the Leica M (Type 240) has been nominated in the Taste Awards. As it's now nominated, it's open to "Viewers Choice" voting, so please have a quick look at the film and if you think it's worthy, spend a minute on their website to vote for it. It'll be awesome to have a Leica film win an award at this competition where most material is submitted by TV channels and production houses! Also, I'd really appreciate if you think the film is worthy, to spread the link around. We have until December 18th. The Taste Awar
  25. Here is a short clip I made using Leica M with Leica 60mm Macro-Elmarit-R. Edited using Final Cut Pro X Thanks
