Way too much publicy for this brand in here these days. Sponsor ?
I hear many positive things about this strap but make sure to check it before you go to avoid this :
This kind of issue is what is preventing me to buy one for my 7000 euros Leica Sl (without lens). Not too hot on the idea of dropping this because of a thin string.
ThePhilips: Stumbled on a simple explanation how Leica brand works, and why Leicans defend it so hard:
Here is my explanation on you :
I like the idea of a reliable digital film-like camera (need a shutter lever though). I think it could be convincing to some people still shooting film because they dont want to shoot a "computer camera" like today. But I wish it could somehow also keep the film look and colors and solve the post processing issue for those who don't want to waste time post processing dule raws. I dont know if its feasable to really replicate film colors for every tones that are digitally captured but that would be awesome.
Love the pics but can't help feeling we've already seen everything about this tourist place of China.
I have this bag. Overall it's good but many things seems not mature enough so overall i feel so so.
First: the peak design clamp system that you are Supposed to clip on a side of your bag feels very unsecure with heavy cameras as the side pockets become loose and makes your camera very nose heavy like it may fall down.
Second: the bag may look big but indeed you cannot put as much as you would first think inside. It kind of lack big pockets and deviders are meh...despite all the marketing.
Third and probaby the biggest issue to me : the front pocket is badly designed. The bottom part doesnt extend when you put stuff in this pocket so the overall capability is very small and the pocket become hard to close with just few things only. You need to press it hard toward the internal part of the bag to be able to close the pocket when it contains only say two batteries and a charger...and few random small things. Moreover the design of this pockets is made in way that the bag doesnt grow much bigger externally when you put more stuff in it but it rather become tigther inside keeping the external look good but the inside even less able to carry stuff.
Except that ! It's very well made. It feels nice to touch. There are some eronomical parts that are very good like the top zip, the simple idea to hold your tripod and the clamp to ajust the size is very nice. I like this bag a lot but at near 300 euros with shipping I expected a more mature product.
As a rat shooter I can't wait to try this in my cave !
Is it compatible with Leica SL + Leica flashes ?
dansclic: One of thé major qualities you expect from à semi pro body is that its battery is able to allow you min. 5/600 shots. This is,incredible that Fuji is not able to solve that problem !!
The Leica SL is your best bet then.
As this is the 2nd time Samsung gives up its customers/supporters in the camera business my guess is we won't see them around here for a long time.
Flickr is soooooo slow.
AllanW: DPreview.... trying to understand what output this has as compared to a speedlight. Any info on this?
Simple : it has less power, less range, it cannot freeze action, it is harder to accessories.
Stollen1234: sorry but not going to invest a dime in Russia until they respect their own people.. dont forget photography is all about art and art is intesive feeling and love..and this is all missing in today,s Russia
Because you think america respects all Americans ? Or french government respects french people ? Or greek government respect greek people too ? Or... erhhh this nevers works indeed.
I am wondering what is the weight of the body. Anyone ?
Who uses a 90mm APO at 1/125 with a Leica M and expect sharp result anyway ?
The NX mount is their error. Could never physically support full frame sensors which basically are what people want to buy these days. That's their mistake number 2. The 1st mistake, still related to their mount, was being less compatible than Sony mount for legacy lenses (remember it was the crazy trend when the NX camera was launched...before Sony Nex line - yes).They also chosed to launch their first NX camera with an already 3 years old outdated sensor that made them lose the upcoming iso race from the start. And that's all these points, very seriously pointed by the haters, that made Samsung become unliked or ignored.I even remember DPR be rather so-so and kind of cold in their reviews about sony NX cameras in comparison to the more enthousiast writing style they used for Sony (despite...frankly, the NX was much more mature as a system that the Nex for many months / years. Pancakes anyone ?). I feel its a bit hypocrite for them to say now that they wish Samsung dont leave the camera business lol. Such enthousiasm would have been better 4 years ago.
The best part:
1.0x viewfinder magnification.
After Leica, Samsung NX line is my favorite for ergonomics, UI interface and handling.I still remember the great NX10 that was a very capable camera, if not an amazing one.Samsung suffered too much of the high ISO performance comparison against Sony (when they were basically just a small stop worse). They obviously fixed this with their last cameras and provided so much more specs than other competitors in the fields. It's a shame it's not selling.
Leica is too expensive.
Robert Kempen: I notice that Leica is selling the SL faster than they can manufacture it - perhaps the bashers want to discuss this?
Steve Huff calls it the camera of the year (and he owns the A7R2) among many cameras
I also notice the list of people who "had it" has now grown to 45 - my goodness!
Anyway, bravo to Leica - the list of happy owners is growing rapidly and the images sent to "the Leica meet" is testimony to the quality of this fine photographic tool
I love my M240, but the viewfinder on the SL is looking more attractive by the day - Leica please make a similar EVF for the M240!
I've ordered mine in France about 2 weeks ago. Still undelivered. People at camera shops say it's not selling as crazy as the Q...but almost.
