This was my first time seeing a total solar eclipse here in Missouri. My conclusions are that a partial photographs just like is looks, because you must shoot though a dark filter and then the sky is black. But in total the photos do not easily show what the eye observes. Where I was, the sky in total was never black, but dark blue,…[Read more]
An incredibly through interview.
You touched on some items that I had not gleaned from other reviews.
Glad you asked about the eventual mono.

Good work Josh,
My review of all the reviews suggests this iteration of the M is getting universal acclaim.
My favorite part is that it is available now, not in 12 months. I like the ISO dial. All these little changes appear to really add to the appeal.

So David, who was the video shooter? Nice work.
Photos by Thomas Struth of tall building in NYC include a video of him at work.
It shows him using a S 007 on high.
A nice useful report.
I had previously wondered at the flash placement worried that so close to the lens it would flash back on any suspended particles in the water. But you explained the plus of the flash not being shadowed by the lens itself.
I had not realized this was the only UW camera without a case that shoots RAW. I have a friend John…[Read more]

Thanks for the walk through.
An easy update. Surprised they jumped from calling it a 2.xxx all the way to 184.108.40.206..0000
I expect 3.00.001 to convert meters into feet. And what other suggestions did you make that they may include on 3.00.002?
I like that it will update my old lenses “automatically” so I will be good to go as soon as…[Read more]
Jack MacD commented on the post, Live View and Playback Operation Walkthrough on the Leica S (Typ 007) 1 year, 8 months ago
You showed me some features I had yet to discover myself. The focus peaking in zoom with the ability to then see the finished result zoomed in and switching from one shot to the next still zoomed is a handy tool indeed.
I suggest you consider also to do a video on the use of wifi control sometime. Photographers who have had live…[Read more]
If a camera does not have enough “latitude” or Dynamic range, the solution as you suggested would be HDR via combining two or more images. I used to do that and it required a tripod usually, no motion in the subject like the moving cars, and I still didn’t like the result very often. Probably my fault.
With enough dynamic range as with the…[Read more]
The issue turned out to be file size.
If this one goes up, we know 1.5 m can work.
If it doesn’t, then I go to a mere .5m
Used to be David allowed huge files, up to 20M. I think when he revised the forum, that changed.
For all the reviews and forum discussions about the SL, half the LFI issue of 8/15 covers the thinking behind the SL in incredible detail. If you want to understand Leica’s thinking you should get it and read it.
Very smooth update. I especially appreciate the long press on the rear dial allowing a 100% zoom enlargement on playback. Much easier than spinning the top dial.
That has to be one the faster firmware updates in Leica history.
