This function works great to check composition, expression, lighting, etc.
Thanks for the tip David.
Will try once my S2 will come back from Leica Portugal,…[Read more]

I'm curious what drew your attention to this post? I tried to make it attention getting but perhaps I could do better?
So now tell us your 35mm story please
Since I just bought a S2 ( I know, I know, not two years…[Read more]

I guess the thing I keep reading is S is not MF it's just 35mm on steroids.
Usually people who say that never had a S2 for more than 1 hour in their hands or simply never had one full stop period.
Just because its SLR/like doesnt mean its a 35mm on steroids. Lots of things a…[Read more]
Being a new S2 owner, lots of stuff is new to me.
Friend this weekend loaned me his 35mm lens * big mistake, but thats another story * and when I put again my 70mm , this triangle appeared. Though it was the exposure comp triangle, but this blinked.
All was pretty much normal until I came to the forum to well, procastrinate a bit eheheh…[Read more]
Also, with LIS and USB, the image takes longer to get to the computer than Hasselblad & Firewire but then again, Its purely a port speed thing.
Some people moan about it but I find it acceptable / find it strange if Leica in the new S wants to keep the USB but didnt updated the port to USB3, but Leica have their own schedules when it comes to…[Read more]

You can also fine-tune the focus in small or large increments. All without touching the camera.
tethered shooting with the S2 is a bit of a .. mehhhh feeling.
after trying phocus and hasselblad, being able to see the focusing, adjust everything on the computer, Leica Image Shuttle is a bit of a joke. Same with Lightroom.
Not that I much product and studio shoot, but it would be refreshing to see a nice solution where I could see…[Read more]
I'll join what others said here.
I've been a long, LONG, LONG LONG LONG time M user. M6, then M7, then MP, then M8 since its launch date then M9 since its launch date ( actually first M9 delivered in Portugal was mine – very early serial number, put a deposit once it was announced )
As Marc said and he put it really well, they are…[Read more]
my heart stopped the first time I cleaned my M9 sensor : the exact same thing happened. battery was half charge, put it on cleaning mode, few swipes here, loupe there, swipe here and there and exactly on the millisecond that I was removing the swab, shutter closes.
Nothing harmed, but really, 1 second later and I really dont know what would…[Read more]
