  1. 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?
  2. Does anyone know the 4k recording bit rate? I’m hoping it’s over 100mbps. Can’t find anything in the specs.... thx!
  3. 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 restoration technique of compatible software. Anyone ran into a similar ordeal? I am devastated... Thank you so kindly in advance for your help! Charles
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. I’m interested in getting the latest DJI Ronin-S for stabilising the video footage with my SL. I’m only just starting to research it from the usability and compatibility angle. Have you done more research yourself and can share? Are there any users out there already with the SL?
  7. I know this is a really stupid question: but how do I shoot a video on my Q? Pressing the button on the top doesn't work. Nor can I find anything in the menu that helps. What am I doing wrong?
  8. Despite what Instructions manual said, there's no way to control ISO or speed while in Video mode. I'm I right or should I hope for next firmware to fix this issue? Cheers!
  9. Has anyone been using the S007 for serious video work? It shoots in a well worn codec with decent bit rate...the HD video out of this camera uses the full sensor so I'm thinking it could be quite beautiful.
  10. Hi everybody, Today I wrote a request to Leica support asking theam for 2 very minor FW update that will improve the wonderful experience of using Leica Q and wish to have your support as users and write to Leica via email to interduce it in new FW, Its a very easy and minor change but will make the experience of using this wonderful camera even better, this is my request which I wrote by email: Dear Sir, I have Leica Q which I love so much and really enjoy using for everything, the only feature missing is the ability to shoot video in 24/50P as most of user including myself we use the camera in PAL region, I really wish that a firmware update will come soon to add this feature or at least the ability to choose between PAL/NTSC region in the camera. I do understand in Leica you listen to users feedback and wish that you will introduce this feature in the future firmware and give us the ability to shoot video in 25/50P. Finally plz add the feature to turn exposure simulation off same feature as there in Leica SL, with exposure simulation off we can use Leica Q for Flash photography without the pain of dark viewfinder before pressing the shutter. Regards Ashkanani Plz write to Leica on this email and I am sure they will listen and deliver at this email ownersarea@leica-camera.com Thanx
  11. 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 has more information about this… Please do share! Thanks, YdeH
  12. 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?
  13. 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!
  14. 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 crop of the sensor- hopefully this will be addressed with FW, it would be nice to use the full sensor. 2- Currently external 4K is limited to 3840 x 2160 at either 25 or 30fps...so no 4K at 24fps. This is a problem, hopefully it will be addressed in the next FW, otherwise the video functions are worthless in the US. If you set the camera to true 4k 4096 x 2160 at 24fps...the Shogun only sees a 1080P signal 3- The omission of a viewing LUT is a hinderance, and although it can be added in the external recorder, it would be better to have it available in the amazing EVF. Focusing in a small LCD is far less than ideal...not being able to utilize the amazing EVF just doesn't make sense. Without a viewing LUT its nearly impossible to focus the camera and judge proper exposure. Ive uploaded a very quick test, not perfect but will give you a way to judge the LOG files for yourself. Others have reported that its impossible to grade the footage with this implementation of LOG. While Leica's LOG is different from others, it is perfectly acceptable and easily produces a nice contrasty image. Can it be improved?...I'm sure there is much room for improvement...more testing with real life subjects will be required, so I will reserve judgment for now, but its hardly impossible to grade this version of LOG. Camera settings: ISO 400 M 1/60 4K- 3840 x 2160 30fps .MOV Lens: Leica Summicron-C 35mm f2.0 PL Cine Lens Leica T-PL Adapter (prototype) f4 to f5.6 Focus shifts from focus chart in rear to color chart in foreground. (7.5' to 10') Atomos Shogun Recorder: v6.5 ProRes HQ 10-Bit 4K UHDp29.97 Record trigger does not work via HDMI The clip can be downloaded here- its a large file so be patient: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mnzzxuay45h5f9a/SHOGUN_S001_S001_T114.MOV?dl=0 Please be gentle, I did this very quickly before leaving for the weekend. I will try to set up proper tests next week. Don't get too excited, its just a still set with lots of color and highlights and shadows...I'll shoot some motion with real humans soon
  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. Here is a short but interesting video look into the production process of the M10 camera:
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. Hi guys, One week with my SL and very happy with it. I am not a video guy and so have lots to learn on the various modes - has anyone found a good (basic) guide? Thanks John
  20. 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,
  21. Hallo zusammen, gibt es hier zufällig noch jemanden, der Spaß am Filmen hat und dieses Hobby auch schon mal mit seiner Leica Q näher verfolgt hat? Oder kennt vielleicht wer andere Foren in denen dieses Thema schon einmal erörtert wurde? Mir ist bewusst, dass die Leica Q in erster Linie auf das Fotografieren ausgerichtet wurde (zumindest bis jetzt)... Theoretisch hat sie es ja technisch drauf und mit dem 28mm bei der Lichtstärke und einem Vollformat Sensor in der Package ließen sich echt tolle Filmchen machen. Was ich absolut nicht verstehen kann: Warum darf ich als Nutzer der Leica Q Handy App im Video Modus ALLE Belichtungseinstellungen manuell vornehmen, nur nicht direkt an der Kamera? Warum werde ich dadurch außerdem gezwungen mir das Bild auf dem per WLAN gepairten Handy anzuschauen statt durch den integrierten Sucher oder den Kamera Bildschirm (mit Lag)? WARUM??? Mit dem Handy ist ja super wenn ich eine Stadicam benutze. Von daher gibt's für dieses Feature definitiv schon mal 100 Punkte von mir. Aber dann doch bitte bitte auch direkt an der Kamera...! Liebes Support Team bei LEICA: Bitte kommt endlich mit einem vernünftigen Firmware Update um die Ecke! Die Kamera kann so viel mehr
  22. Hi, sorry if this has been asked before, but I've recently started using the M240 for video in my travel series, and noticed that all my videos are in 16:9 aspect ratio. As I'm on the go at the moment, I ask for your understanding and apologise in advance if this has been asked before How do I change the video recording aspect ratio on the M240 to use the full sensor (4:3 or 3:2?) instead of 16:9 Help appreciated, thanks!
  23. Maybe this has been discussed before, but I wasn't able to find an answer. When I want to record a video, I set focus, aperture and shutter time, then press the video button, but recording goes on for few seconds and then stops before I can press again the button. This happens also using LV, I can't record more than 3-4 seconds. The battery is fully charged and the 32Gb card is empty. Am I missing something? Probably yes. Thank you for any help.
  24. 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
  25. 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"
