  1. Marine Drive, Mumbai. Also know as the Queen’s necklace. X Vario
  2. Liebe Leica-Gemeinde, gern würde ich eure Expertise anzapfen für einen nahenden Kamerakauf, bei dem mir die Entscheidung seit zwei Wochen sehr schwer fällt. Vielleicht könnt ihr mir die Wahl erleichtern? Ich möchte die Kamera beruflich und privat nutzen. Im Job vor allem für Architektur und Stadtbild, auch mit Innen- und Detailaufnahmen. Gefragt ist aber keine professionelle Architektur-Fotografie (was ich als Laie auch gar nicht leisten kann) sondern dokumentarische Bilder. In der Freizeit bin ich meist in der Natur unterwegs. Dort vor allem Landschaft, aber auch hin und wieder ein entferntes Objekt oder eine Makro-Aufnahme… Meine Präferenzen: 1. Festes Objektiv! Grundsätzlich reizen mich die kompakten Geräte ohne Objektiv-Wechselei und großer Kameratasche. Außerdem besitzt meine Frau eine Olympus Systemkamera, die ich mir im Bedarfsfall mal „leihen“ kann. Das erspart mir auch den Aufbau einer parallelen Objektiv-Sammlung. 2. Keine Festbrennweite! Zum Heranholen von Details (Natur, Architektur) möchte ich auf einen Zoom nicht komplett verzichten. 3. Verlässlicher Automatikmodus UND bedienerfreundliches manuelles Einstellen je nach Situation. 4. Ich suche etwas Hochwertiges und Langlebiges für die nächsten Jahre und kann bei den zusätzlichen Funktionen auch Abstriche machen. 5. Bitte mit Sucher! Integriert wäre optimal, ein Aufstecksucher ist aber auch in Ordnung. 6. Der Preis sollte die 1000er Marke nicht allzu weit überschreiten. Habe aber auch keine Angst vor Second-Hand. Das führt mich im Leica Sortiment vor allem zu den Kompaktkameras. Ich schwanke daher zwischen der D-Lux 109, V-Lux 114 und der X Vario. Bis auf die X Vario hatte ich die Modelle auch schon einmal in der Hand. Meine persönlichen Einschätzungen: D-Lux + extrem kompakt und reisetauglich - gleichzeitig etwas fummelig für meine großen Hände – wird mit dem zusätzlichen Griff aber sicher besser V-Lux + üppiger Zoom, mit dem man sicher auch den ein oder anderen Vogel oder Fuchs vor die Linse bekommt. Vermutlich das universellste Modell der Drei? - zu groß für die Jackentasche, bin persönlich auch kein riesiger Fan von den etwas klobigen Formen der Bridge-Kameras X-Vario + wirkt aus der Ferne etwas hochwertiger verarbeitet und exklusiver als die Japan-Modelle, für mich optisch das schönste Modell der Drei - zusätzlicher Sucher nötig, etwas puristische Ausstattung im Vergleich Ich hoffe euch mit dieser ausführlichen Frage nicht zu langweilen und freue mich über jeden Ratschlag – ob fachlich fundiert oder ganz spontan und subjektiv. Mir ist auch klar, dass ich (vor allem bei dem Budget) an der ein oder anderen Stelle Kompromisse eingehen muss. Habe ich vielleicht sogar ein passendes Modell übersehen, das vielleicht nicht alle, aber die meisten Bedingungen erfüllt (evtl. auch mit Wechselobjektiven)? Liebe Grüße aus dem Norden
  3. Hallo Leica X Vario Freunde, gibt es noch Alternativen zum EVF 2 ? Oder muss man mit 400,00 € in den sauren Apfel beißen ? Durchblick
  4. THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!

    • For Sale
    • Used

    For Sale. Leica X Vario Aps-c sensor, 16mp, digital,camera with a fixed Leica Elmar Zoom lens, 18-46mm (equivalent to 28-70mm on a 35mm camera) f/3.5-6.4. The camera is in very good condition, glass is perfect and the rear LCD screen has been covered with a Schott glass screen protector. Other accessories are all original manuals, original box (which is more entertaining than you might expect), 4 batteries, charger, Olympus VF2 electronic viewfinder (same as the more expensive Leica version..both made by Epson), Leica removable grip, nice after market metal lens hood, Leica lens cap with tether, MegaGear ever-ready case, leather Leica shoulder strap. Please see pictures.The camera functions perfectly with the exception of the video mode audio,which quit recording sound. I have not been able to determine the reason for this and I presume the built in microphones are not functioning because the visual video is fine.. This is unfortunate but I haven't had it repaired because I don't do video, and have never considered a Leica for other than still pictures. You will need to take this into consideration of course, and I've priced it accordingly.Cosmetically the camera is beautiful, but does show some signs of normal use, namely some finish wear on the corners that can be seen in the photos.Please do your research before buying or making an offer because I am not able to offer returns on this. I have described the camera as accurately as possible, so please ask if you have further questions. $1000.00 USD Paypal only, shipping within USA only, buyer pays shipping.

  5. Does anyone have any Thumbs Up type of solutions that work well on the X Vario? That beautiful, heavy lens out front is leaving me with the desire for a bit more grip for my thumb. I already own the hand grip and I have a finger loop on the way, but nothing beats a thumbs up, at least in my experience. Open to any and all suggestions though - thanks.
  6. I know the topic of the XV versus the D'Lux 109 has been discussed here many times already, but I'm curious about one specific aspect between the two cameras. I recently sold my Q which was my go to camera for family shots and have been using my trusty XV since. The autofocus is a bit slow for grabbing shots of the children with consistency. I have had the XV for many years as my primary landscape camera, but am thinking of grabbing a D'Lux 109 for family and general purpose use. My questions are; is the DLux's autofocus faster than the XV, and will going to the DLux bring a massive (or slight) downgrade in image quality? Any thoughts are appreciated. Thank everyone, Adam

  8. From my perspective, the soon to be "T2" makes the continued development of the X line completely unnecessary. The X Vario and D Lux 109 is effectively duplicated by the T and the 18-56; the X2, XE, and X typ 113 is supplanted by the T and 23 mm. An 18-200 zoom would also be able to supplant the V Lux 114. I would suspect that the "T2" is going to have a built in EVF, more megapixels, and a superior auto focus system. Leica has already shown us the roadmap with the Q, so we have a glimpse as to what is probable. The T line should be able to be 'everything for everyone' on the prosumer level, and it makes no sense to continue the X line. An ala carte type of menu and choices. (Perhaps, even, the touch screen will become more of a hybrid system so that the T2 has more cross appeal to the old X users). Anyhow, that's how I would think Leica is approaching its product development.
  9. Having noticed that my (wonderful) new Vario tends to overexpose more often than I'm used to, I decided to test the camera's light meter using the Sunny/16 rule. Using a high quality 18 percent grey card in direct sunlight, I made a series of measurements that raise more questions than I myself can answer, so I'm hoping some of you may be able to help. The idea is that the camera, using aperture priority, should pick a shutter speed equal to the ISO value. Instead, with spot metering, the shutter speeds are double the expected value: ISO 100 : 1/200 ISO 200 : 1/400 ISO 400 : 1/800 etcetera With centre-weighted metering the results are different (though they should be the same, having taken care to fill the frame with the grey card): ISO 100 : 1/160 ISO 200 : 1/320 ISO 400 : 1/640 etcetera Now to make things even more complicated, I found that in manual mode, the on screen exposure meter reads zero at a third set of values: ISO 100 : 1/125 ISO 200 : 1/250 ISO 400 : 1/500 etcetera With this final test, there was no difference between spot and centre-weighted metering, which presents us with yet another riddle... Can anyone explain this? Or try to replicate these results with their Vario, just to rule out that I have a faulty item? Also, I'd welcome advice about adjusting exposure strategies in light (pun intended) of these irregularities. I use spot metering most of the time, and my thinking about exposure is largely in terms of Adams' Zones.
  10. I am new to the X Vario and Leica in general. One purpose I have purchased the camera for is for general walk about and street photography. I have the EVF2 as I am used to looking through a viewfinder with my DSLR D810. I have had a SLR for 44 years now and admittedly this camera will take some getting used to. So I have three general questions: Is the Autofocus good enough that I should rely on it for most of those "fleeting moment" shots For deliberate manual focusing situations can you offer any sugguestions for how best to have the camera set up so I literally can just "frame and shoot" while in street or family situations? e.g. zone focusing, Does the technique outlined here make sense, and are all the limitations therein still valid with 1.1 version of Firmware. Thanks in advance. Mike
  11. Hallo liebe X Vario User, ich möchte mir gerne den neuen Leica Blitz SF40 zulegen. Vor allem zum aufhellen bei Tageslicht Portraiaufnahmen, da ich die Vario gelegentlich für Modeaufnahmen einsetzte. Hat jemand von Euch schon Erfahrungen mit dieser Kombination oder mit dem Gerät? Danke & Grüße Michael
  12. Enjoy the XV, and recently have become interested in in-camera double exposure techniques. So far as I can see from the manual this is not possible on the XV. Have I missed something? Do you create double exposures in processing? What software do you use? I only have Apple Aperture and the free download of Lightroom 3 (the only version my elderly Mac OSX 10.6 can cope with).
  13. As I new (and proud) owner of an X Vario (shame on XVarior and Guytou for getting me the itch ), I am currently experimenting with color rendition, high ISO, controls, ... and I stumbled on this this morning. Just look at the bottom right and it looks like an incidental source of light (there were none) or specular reflection. Sun (hidden by a thin layer of clouds) was above my left shoulder at 90° with respect to the shooting direction. 1/2000 s, f/3.5, ISO 100 at 28 mm The lens hood is the JJC LH-XV, as recommended by Waloszek in his excellent review. So, could this be lens flare or flare induced by the lens hood ? Anyone having already experimented this ? (Of course, I didn't immediately notice that and therefor didn't try without the hood)
  14. Knowing I'm preaching to the choir, just wanted to say how much of an absolute joy the X Vario has been. On Sunday, my wife went into early labor and I grabbed the X Vario as the camera to use in case my daughter was born early. As it turns out, she was and the XV performed amazingly. The NICU where my newborn daughter currently resides is very lowly lit. The slow lens was not a problem and focus was spot on in all situations. Battery life was good, and unlike my M, it was nice to be able to hand off the camera to a nurse for the family photo. Also, the recently purchased FlashAir card made downloading and then emailing photos from the hospital through Photosync a cinch. The card is noticeably slower than my Sandisk Extreme, but the ability to download photos immediately was, in this instance, priceless. I sold the T to get the XV and have to say there are no regrets. The camera has been such a joy to use, and under the difficult circumstances of the past few days has proven its metal in one of the most important events in my life. It will be my trusty companion for many occasions to come! AG
  15. I visited STEAM museum in Swindon UK, one of many visits over time, to experiment with hand-held photography using higher ISOs than is customary for me. Much to my surprise, and it was well before Christmas, all exhibits were draped in tinsel. So here is my contribution wishing you all a Very Happy Christmas. (X Vario, full aperture, ISO 1250; hand-held; LR5) N.B. For non-Brits, Brunel was a famous pioneering railway engineer who founded the original Bristol to London railway and built his engineering works in a former little village called Swindon, roughly mid-way along the line. Swindon is now a very large English town with no railway workshops. The remaining buildings mostly form a busy Outlet Centre for designer goods, apart from the museum.
  16. Little more than a month ago, during my visit to LA, I went to the Leica Store Los Angeles to see the store many photographers talk about, also to discover the Leica X Vario. when I got there, I immediately understood why that store was so loved by those who have visited it. it's an extraordinary visual and emotional experience. I also understood why Leica has called the X Vario a Mini M, simply because it felt like one. I loved that tank feeling of it in my hands... but wait, that was not everything. Mr. Tom Smith from Leica US Akademie came to me to ask if I could join him in his coming Leica X Vario Discovery event planned to take place next day! I came back, and had a blast using and shooting with a Leica for the first time in my life. i did it all in B&W, all manual and i was amazed buy the result! here it is... Hope you'll enjoy it. PS: That's the day during which I became a happy Leica Owner Here's a link to the album. Hope you'll like it. Leica Store Los Angeles - a set on Flickr
  17. I have been shooting the x vario for two weeks and am very happy with the results I've had thus far. Yesterday the XV suddenly displayed a green line on the left 1/8 th of the view finder (olympus Ev-2) and shots had a blue saturation! I turned the camera off and the issue disappeared. Any ideas out there? Do I have a defective sensor? Has anyone else run into this problem? Your help is much appreciated.
