Leica FOTOS App w/ iPad Pro & SL2

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hello All,

I've been trying to reach out to Leica about an issue I'm finding with the Leica FOTOS app for iPad but no responses. I'm able to connect my SL2 to my iPad Pro with the FOTOS app but getting a very soft image when viewing in the Remote mode. The library thumbnails look soft too.

I do get nice clean images when I open up an image already captured.

Maybe I'm missing something? I tried with both of my SL2s and no luck. It would be a nice app to use on some photoshoots. Only other issue is that it doesn't support 2 card slots so a backup not happening when using the app. 

Thanks,

Paul

Are you using the Pro (subscription)  version of FOTOS app?

Yes, I’m using the Pro version of FOTOs. Paid for it in December.

Someone responded days later but not clear about when the issue will be fixed. Below is the email. For now I have a useless app and look forward to the issue being fixed.

"Thank you for the feedback which has been forwarded to the SL2 product managers at the Leica factory headquarters in Germany.  I’m told that work is being done to address the soft image issue, which will hopefully be addressed in the next app update."

      I have just seen that it is now possible to register the SL2 in the owners area of Leica's website
      When I did that I found that there are two versions of the production current, one for E, U JP, CH and one called ROW. (Rest of World???) Mine is ROW and the serial numbers are different for each version'
      I have no idea what the differences are. Possibly it may account for what seem to be some small functions differences I have read referred to in the Forum here. I don't seem to be able to select different Profiles for example, whereas I have read that others can. Or that may be be error on my part.
      My SL2 is from an authorised Australian dealer and one of the first shipment available here I think. I had thought that Australian stock came via Singapore for whatever that is worth.
      I never got the correct cable with AUS plug for the charger. It is a standard figure 8 lead though.

      Hi,
      i am looking for some advice.  
       
      I enjoy landscape / cityscape / street photography (I have a cl for street, it replaced my Fuji x-100t). I recently moved from Canon to the SL2.  Still at the foothills of the learning curve.
      I have the 24-90 on the camera most of the time.  I also have the Summicron 35 and the Sigma 14-24.  I am swallowing hard at the cost of the 90-280 especially as I have a Mark I Canon 100-400.
      Now for the questions:
      Does anyone use canon’s  Mark I 100-400 on the SL2? Are there alternatives which people could recommend which would take me up to around the 300mm maybe 400mm? Does not have to be a zoom. Sorry for the long question and thank you in advance

      Hi,
      I am in the fortunate position of travelling to South Africa (near Cape Town).  Photography is not the purpose of the trip but it would be ‘rude’ not to take a camera.
      I have a cl, which I am excited about.  It is a recent purchase with the kit 18mm lens.  It replaces my Fuji x100t which I really enjoyed but I wanted to be able to change lens’ and I preferred the cl to Fuji x-pro 3.
      i just like having a camera in my jacket pocket, hence the 18mm.  Physical, it makes the cl very similar to the X-100 series.
      Now for the questions:
      Is the 23 Summicron significantly better quality than the 18mm (I cant find the physical length lens so will pop into shop to see)? Is the APO-VARIO-ELMAR-TL 55-135MM considered to have a ‘good’ IQ? Should I be looking at other L-Mount lens?  I have a SL2 and the 35mm Summicron, the 24-90 and an underused Sigma 14-24, but I would rather travel with something more compact and in line with the cl. The photography I like is mainly landscape but of course, a bit of street and social photography too.
      Thank you for your help in advance.

      Hi everyone, 
      I´ve been looking for a good fit L-bracket for the SL2 lately and tried some options. I'd thought I´d share my findings with some pictures (below) to maybe help anyone out who's looking for an L-bracket for the SL2. The options I´ve tried are:
      Kirk ULB-1 3 Legged Thing Ellie Markins PV 100 & LV 170 For me personally I decided that the Markins is the best fit. It is also the lightest and generally has the smallest footprint thanks to the fact that it is possible to have the bracket part adjusted for a snug fit to the side of the camera. Obviously one cannot access any of the ports with the bracket mounted like that, but I don't usually need to. Obviously the Markins is also easily adjusted to extend the bracket part so that the ports are accessible. 

      The Kirk comes in second for me, what I don't like about it on the SL2 is that the bottom main screw for the tripod socket is only adjustable "sideways" and the preset positions are not a good fit for the SL2´s tripod screw that is relatively far towards the back of the camera. Also the bracket part is not adjustable in distance to the body. However, with it mounted it is possible to still easily open the bottom port flap to access the USB-C port for example for charging.
      The 3 Legged Thing gave me a "gimmicky" impression. It felt a bit wobbly, probably because of the gap in the bracket part (that obviously also has advantages for cable management, I don't need this though). It also comes fairly close to the strap lugs and could cause issues when using a strap.
      Hope this helps anyone looking for an L-Bracket for their SL2. On a side note, I'm not a big fan of the RRS way of designing brackets for the SL range. They make an already large camera even larger and are also heavier than the other options. However, once they come out with their SL2 version I´ll probably have a second look...
      I also have some more pictures with different perspectives, let me know if you're interested (didn't want to clutter the thread too much)😀

      Whenever I remove my SL2 battery, I lose all language, app, date and time settings, etc., and I'm forced to set them each time I remove the battery.
      Has anyone experienced this? I'm now charging with the usb-c port, but would like to figure this one out......
      Cheers,
      Scott
