The PDN X1 review

Recommended Posts

Ive made a few comments about the review on the blog.. Personally i think Havik didnt really spend long enough with the camera. He has made some very odd comments especially about changing the dial settings with his leg!

 

Overall a very amateurish camera review..

Amateurish, maybe - but with conclusions completely in line with pretty well every other review published so far.

Funny conicidence, that.

Stewart - thanks for taking the time to highlight & comment on the PDN review. Taking time to straighten the record was much appreciated.

 

Their article was like piling on, more emphasis on the downside than upside. Maybe it'll cause some folks to pull out of buying the X1, which could move me up a position or two on some wait lists. If that happens, I'll be the first to say how much I liked their X1 review.

Just read it. Pretty much sounds like what every other reviewer has said. I guess some just want to ignore the facts or don't much care. It would make a great stationary landscape camera attached to a tripod although a bit expensive and limiting with just a 35mm lens.

Oh, I don't know. Stand far enough back from your landscape and you'll get it all in.

    • By Walking Photographer
      Hello guys , I just bought a 21mm Elmarit f2.8 lens (the old one) for my Leica MP Typ 240.

      Really enjoyed the lens. I just noticed that its min focus distance is 0.7 while i read on the internet that you can find a version that focus at 0.38.
       
      Any other differences between the two lenses ? Somebody here have experience with the close focus version ?

      I took some Street Pictures and wrote a little article for my blog: www.walkingphotographer.net/blog/21mm-street-photography

      Thanks for your time !

      Here's a post of some pics I recently took with my Leica I Model C and Summar 5cm f2. Lots of Leica posts on my blog, just search "Leica." But, since this is my oldest Leica (ca. 1931), I thought it may be of interest.

      Hellsten is currently working with a year long project HELSINKI365, where he documents everyday life in Helsinki together with Helsinki Marketing Ltd. Hellsten conducted HELSINKI365 first time in 2012, and his main tool back then was Leica M9-P. Now when to project relaunched in November 2013, his main tool had been upgraded to Leica M (Typ 240). The new Leica T is natural continuity for exploring Helsinki through the Leica camera.
