By chris_tribbleHas anyone else noticed an issue when using AF with the SL2?
CONTEXT - I'm working with VE 24-90 and VE 90-200 on the SL2. The same problem occurs with the Sigma 45 DG DN - so it's not a Leica lens specific problem. I usually default to field metering and AFS. However, I've recently set Intelligent AF as a default. At the moment (lockdown!) I'm mainly working with landscape photography while doing socially distanced treks in the area around where I live.
ISSUE - I've started noticing that with Intelligent AF + Field (or ANY other relevant AF mode) the focus locks as normal on the selected area, but with the shutter half down to lock AF, the image in the screen blurs slightly. The moment the shutter is fired (or pressure is released) everything snaps back into clarity. I found this very distracting. I think I've found the solution for now is to switch to AFS, where this behaviour does not manifest itself.
REQUEST - Does any one else share this experience - or can you reproduce it? If yes, any thoughts on a solution - or is this maybe a firmware issue we need to raise with Leica? I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.
I'm looking for original case of Leica 250 Reporter.
Maybe somebody know resources (except eBay) what I should monitoring for the subject?
And how it do in the best way?
By ScoobHi all
New to forum.
I just bought some used 10x25 Trinovid BC, which have the leather covering, rather than the BCA Rubber version.
I just wondered if it is possible to work out the age from the Serial number? (Mine is 1433082)
This is what I have been told about them, not sure how much is accurate - please help if you know different:
Optical coatings or Phase correction in the BCs was updated about 1990?
Apparently an original single fixture was used for the neck strap originally, before being updated to dual side lugs - which coincided with optical update.
I am due to collect these tomorrow and would like to know if I am looking through the latest optical version when assessing them - (I am sure they will be good whichever)
By biswasgThe lack of a tilting display on the SL2 makes it difficult to shoot from low or other than eye level angles. Has anyone tried to put a secondary display, say mounted on the flash shoe so that it becomes easy to see the with low or difficult angles. I saw using the Atomos Ninja for also recording video. Can the iPhone mounted on the hot shoe be a possibility or any other display option?
By Michael KorakAlas, it is time for me to move out of 35mm film photography. After 6 decades of making pictures with a variety of equipment, I must finally abandon the wonderful world of emulsion.
My love for Leica goes back to the late 1970's and just a few years ago, I let go of my beloved M6 with its 35mm Summicron. It had become to difficult to get a good focus point with my 70 year old eyes. I moved into this R6 with the same focal length and speed. I have been shooting the ..OCOL way of thinking...one camera-one lens.
I also have a Fuji X-100F that has become my very acceptable replacement for the Leica. It suits my age and lifestyle now. So, here is what I am offering;
Leica R6 body vintage 1988, with eyecup and split image focusing screen, strap, Leica eveready case and very comprehensive Fritz Meisnitzner book,
Leica 35mm F2 Summicron-R lens vintage 1979, both caps, 55mm Leitz UVa filter, leather zip case, and original box with the packing foam in it,
Leica 2x R-Extender (rarely used) with both caps and a nylon pouch,
Metz 32 Z-2 electonic flash unit with SCA 351 Leica adapter (again, rarely used)
All of the items are in perfect working condition. Optically, the lens is top notch LEICA quality, nothing less. My last roll of film left the camera two weeks ago.
Will ship to almost anywhere. Priority USPS Mail, fully insured, buyer pays shipping.
Buyer also pays fees if using PayPal.
$1250.00 USD buys it all.
