HDMI output with initial AF tracking point and exposure data showing?


Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I’m using an Atomos Ninja V 5” monitor driven by the SL2’s HDMI port. It displays the viewfinder image just fine, but none of the AF tracking and exposure data shown in the viewfinder. This gives me a very viewable display at low camera angles - the eyepiece no longer gets in the way, and I can actually see what I’m shooting.
 

** Is anyone else using an external monitor, and how do I get the AF tracking point and exposure info I see in the viewfinder to appear in the external monitor? 
 

Right now all I get is the viewfinder image. I have to place the AF tracking point in the middle of the viewfinder and put the subject there when I’m using the external monitor without knowing if I’m AF tracking or not.

Thanks..

I have the same set-up. The leica HDMI out-put is clean output only. It is only sensor/processor data channeled through, so there is no menu layout on top.

  • The con is you dont get to see what camera data/controls layout.
  • The pro is that is is the "purest" signal you can get.

In the near future, it would be awesome to have a Leica hybrid camera with a control software built for external monitor (like RED/ARRI and SmallHD) but that is still the preserve of dedicated video/cine cameras for now. Everybody cries about the flip out screen... I totally support Leica not giving into that. Back to topic=

From my findings with SL2+Atomos, you can rely on the wavefrom very accurately to expose your log. Set your zebra at the 100% threshold to avoid clipping, or use it a 50-70% to use it as an exposure guide for skin (fair) for example. The false colors tool works nicely, too. A thing SmallHD does better is the ability to zoom in and meter the image portion in the zoom... you can't have it all...

Leave everything Log/HDR on OFF and activate Legalize ON to correctly monitor your L-LOG output. It will show some exagerated grain and flatness, but it is normal.

Experiment with HLG (and you can activate the HDR processing on AUTO if you want the Atomos to do it for you before post...) for low light situation and you get suprisingly good results up to 12500ASA...

      Hi, I shoot a lot of commercials.
      I bought sl2 this time.
      An incident occurred during the first commercial shoot using sl2.
      The picture came in well on the capturer one, and there was no problem taking it.
      Then, at some point, the camera went completely out of order.
      Touch screens are not available and power buttons are not available.
      If a stop occurs, the battery must be forcibly removed.
      And when we film again, things go well, and at some point, af stutters.
      It stops again.
      This phenomenon continued to occur on the set.

      Usage environment - macbook pro, capturer one, ether cable (usb C), sd card not used

      I'll connect the link. I would appreciate it if you could check and tell me the cause.

      Laika only says it's an SD card problem even if there's no problem at all.
      There's no problem, so there's nothing I can do for you.
      It's so frustrating.

      Hi there,
      I am attempting to repair the battery terminal for the light meter on my SL2, which corroded and snapped off some years ago. I have seen a repair video for the same issue on an SL model on YouTube  and it certainly looks achievable: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXSjrAUj0EQ
      I am having trouble removing the bottom casing though. After removing the 2 screws and either end of the body, it's clear it is still fastened in the middle, however there is no drive hole to unscrew inside the tripod mount. It's possible that it has been stripped off if it's soft aluminium. I have attempted with a Robertson bits and Hex bits and there is nothing in there to grip - but I can also see that there is nothing to grip....
      Is it different between the SL and SL2... or if it has been stripped, is there any other way to remove the screw/cover?
      Thanks in advance...

      I'm planning a trip next year to Iceland.  Mainly, I'll be shooting landscape and Northern lights Photos.  I'll be taking a class and traveling with a small group of students and an instructor.  
      I currently have an M10R and a 50 Summilux, 21 Super Elmar and a 35 Summilux.  I will most likely take that as the backup since the weather can be cold and rainy.  If it's nice out, I'll certainly use the M10R and especially the 21 for landscape shots.  However, I am told by the instructor that I will need a weather proof body and lenses.  
      I am planning on renting an SL2 (or maybe buying one, taking advantage of the deal with the free M adapter to use my M lenses) and renting a short, medium and longer focal length lens - 90-280, 24-70 f/2.8, etc for the beautiful landscape of Iceland - mountains, waterfalls, etc.
      However for the night time Northern Lights photos. I know that using a wide lens with a fast aperture is highly recommended. Since the SL2 is part of the L family, I was thinking Panasonic or Sigma for something wide and fast.
      First question - I've done a lot of research and and actually shot the Northern Lights when they came as far south as Michigan in 2004.  I used a full frame Canon DSLR and the 16-35mm f/2.8, set it to ISO 200 with a 30 second exposure and got some pretty decent photos.  However, I'd be curious what you have used in the past to capture the Northern Lights.
      What is the ideal L lens for shooting the Northern Lights in Iceland?  
      Any help is greatly appreciated.
      Thanks!
      -Ted

      In meinem fotographischen Einzugsgebiet liegt der Harz, und gestern versprach der Himmel zum wiederholten Male spannend zu werden. Anders als sonst hatte ich aber Zeit und auch die Chance noch einmal "auszurücken" (die Tour mit der Berliner Truppe um Hartmut aka @hartgraefkonnte ich im Juni ja leider nicht begleiten...) Gesagt getan, Sachen gepackt und im niedersächsischen Starkregen und Gewitter los ins Ilsetal. Als Ziel hatte ich mir in der Hoffnung von Nebelbänken den Ilse FELSEN überlegt, von wo man einen Bli ck über den bewaldeten Teil des Tales bis zum Brocken hat/ haben kann. 
      Vom Parkplatz aus recht schnell nach links noch vor Erreichen der Ilse in den Wald war ich dann einigermaßen überrascht,  dass die Wege gesperrt waren. Der Borkenkäfer und die Witterung/ Stürme haben eben doch deutlich mehr Spuren hinterlassen an den Bäumen als so manchem lieb ist.

      Entsprechend der doch eindeutig erhöhten Gefahr auf diesem Weg (im Hang liegen ungesicherte Stämme) hab ich mir angesichts des Wetters einen anderen (längeren) Weg gesucht um Zum Ziel zu kommen. Ich hab auch da ne ordentliche Packung Regen abbekommen, aber das ist sicher besser als Baumstämme....
