Dlux 4 update 2.2 close focussing


Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

After I updated to version 2.1 close focussing at the macro setting was very bad. I figured Leica would solve this problem in version 2.2. No such thing! I`m very dissapointed, I never had problems close-focussing with the earlier versions. I hope that Leica solves this problem shortly. I wonder if other users have the same problems.

Have you unknowingly moved the switch on the side of the lens away from the Macro Mode's flower symbol ?

(refer to page 36 of the Instruction Book)

Close focussing has always been less good at longer zoom lengths so make sure you're at the widest angle if you want to go really close. I've found that since the DL4 now remembers it's last zoom setting I have to remember to check what zoom the camera's at if I want to go very close.

      Hello Forum members,
      I am hoping to get some information about the Leitz BELUN 1:1 copy stand for the Leitz Elmar 5 cm lens in combination with a macro-tube. The BELUN set that I just received contains the three rods imprinted "ELMAR" and a macro (extension) tube imprinted "ELMAR SUMMAR 1:1". I have seen photos of similar setups a couple of times online so I thought it should work for 1:1 reproduction (I want to digitize film using a SONY A7"). Testing the setup yesterday with my SONY A7 + KF Concept E - M-mount adapter + M-mount - LTM adapter + BELUN macro tube + Elmar 5cm lens + 3-leg copy stand setup, I wasn't able to achieve any in-focus image with the Elmar lens in any focussing position and aperture f/9. I only get grain resolution (or sufficient sharp images) if I push the Elmar halfway in. My question is now if there are any variations  in the setup or settings required? 
      Any tips or info is very welcome.
      Cheers,

      Good Day!
      Is it possible to tell if an image was taken in Macro mode vs. not from exif data? I am using Lightroom and do not see any indication. It would be nice to be able to identify that on my images. 
      Thanks in advance.

      I'm looking to 'play around' with some macro photography. Nothing serious at this stage so don't want to spend much.  I have a Novoflex R-SL adaptor which I use with a 50mm Summicron R I have and it works fine. Has anyone any thoughts on both the Elmarit-R f2.8 60mm and the Elmar-R f4 100mm, both of which seem to be reasonably priced on eBay. Any pitfalls to look out for and most importantly, will that work with the SL using manual and Focus Peaking?
       
      Many thanks

      Is it possible to couple an iPhone to the SL2 so that it can be easily used to view from the front of a vertical copy setup with the camera facing down (e.g an enlarger or Bencher type arrangement).  I want to be able to copy slides, 35mm/6x6 negatives and prints.  If this can be done are there special cables or connectors that are best to use?
