  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 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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?
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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"
  7. 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
  8. 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,
  9. 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
  10. 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!
  11. 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
  12. Here is a short but interesting video look into the production process of the M10 camera:
  13. 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?
  14. Greetings Folks, Wanted to share my first short film shot entirely on the Leica M (Type 240): Cheers, Edmond
  15. The embedded date on the camera screen is correct, but in Lightroom the embedded date is 10.02.1988. Do you have the same issue?
  16. Here is a video using M lenses which illustrates what may be possible with the new M. Ulriksdal castle ( Sony NEX-C3 + Leica-M ) on Vimeo
  17. 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.
  18. Here is a short clip I made using Leica M with Leica 60mm Macro-Elmarit-R. Edited using Final Cut Pro X Thanks
  19. Hi All, Did anyone ever figure out if it is possible to shoot video with an M8, via tethering or something? I remember seeing, years ago, someone tethering a Canon DSLR and capturing video before they added the video function. The camera has such a nice quality I just wondered. Thanks, Steve.
  20. Greetings All, I've spent around nine months on a project to shoot a film and photographs on an amazing hospital, the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in the UK (Stanmore, Middx). Reportage On The RNOH | Photo This & That I used a Leica M9 and M9-P with the 50mm Noctilux, 35 Summilux ASPH (current version) and 28mm Summicron. The video aspects were shot on a pair of Canon 5D MkIIs. Here are some behind the scenes images and notes: Behind The Scenes | Photo This & That I'd love to hear your thoughts and if you are touched by what you see and hear, would love it if you would pop by their page and make a donation: Home - The RNOH Charity Lastly, for anyone interested, here's the 'normal' video version: RNOH Redevelopment Appeal Film on Vimeo Cheers All, Edmond
  21. 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 Awards 2013 | Photo This & That Huge Thanks, Edmond
  22. Greetings Folks, Delighted to share that my first ever short film with the M 240 is a finalist in the UK Picture Editor's Awards: Finalist In The UK Picture Editors’ Guild Awards | Photo This & That This is a very high profile and competitive competition and to be shortlisted is indeed an honour. Regards, Edmond
  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. Well... this is the first time I've tried recording video with the Leica M (Typ 240) after owning it a year. I used two bodies, one with the Summilux-R 80mm (close up shot) and the other with the Summicron-M 50mm + ND filter to shoot wide open at 1/25th shutter speed. here's a link to the video on youtube: Lorenz accepting the ALS ice bucket challenge - YouTube Please also think about donating to ALS.
  25. Hi, I'm trying to import Leica M240 video files (MOV) into Apple Aperture (v 3.5.1) without success. Does anyone have any kind of relevant information that might help me with this? It's as if Aperture does not recognize the files as video. Thanks a lot. Martin.
