  • Congrats to the new camera. I am really curious about the 30mm. I looked into the 21mm but it may be too wide for every day use. The 65mm is great but slow and heavy. D!RK
  • Thank you Rick. I think a camera leads you a bit in how you photograph. The X1D somehow stirs me towards urban landscapes. I have done these before and always enjoyed them, but I noticed that I ...
  • Created discussion thread Moved from M10 to X1D
    I sold my M240 and M10 and moved on to the X1D. It felt a bit like going back to the original M8. Not because of the image quality but because of its clunky performance. All I can say that for ...
  • Created discussion thread Really really late X1D review
    I know that the X1D mk2 may be launched at any time. So I am late to the party with my X1D review. But I have written down a few thoughts about this camera and have published those on my blog. I ...
  • I have been an avid Leica user for years. I mostly used M cameras ranging from the M6 all the way to the M10, with almost every standard M camera in between. But early last year I switched to the ...
  • I actually wish that Hasselblad would introduce some smaller, but manual focus lenses. Since the camera is not fast enough for good street photography, many users would probably be fine with ...
  • I am an avid Leica M shooter but have converted to a Leica SL a year ago. For the last two months I have been shooting with the Hasselblad X1D. I am a big fan of a 50mm lens on a Leica, so I was ...
  • I had to move my review  to a different location within my Wordpress but I could not update the link here in the forum. So I am posting the new link. Have a look at my first impressions of the 65mm ...
  • Created discussion thread First impressions of the XCD 65mm lens
    I received my 65mm XCD lens last week and took it out this weekend for a few shots. Here are my first impressions. Enjoy D!RK http://www.dirkahlgrim.com/2019/02/18/first-impression-of-the-hasselbla ...
  • Hi Irakly Yes, 1.30min would be a bit tighter, but I followed the length of the music track. I recorded in camera and did not select the log file. It did a bit of grading in Premiere, including the ...
  • I am an avid street photographer but recently switched from a Leica M10 to a Leica SL to do more video. So I am new to video but enjoying it a lot. My most recent clip is a 2min portrait of a ...
  • Created discussion thread Leica SL used for Macro video
    I am an avid street photographer but recently switched from a Leica M10 to a Leica SL to do more video. My most recent clip is a 2min portrait of a graphic designer/communication designer doing ...
  • Created discussion thread Leica SL slow motion B&W video.
    I went to the skate park in Boston and took a B&W slow motion video with my Leica SL and a M 50mm Summilux. I am very happy with the result. The dynamic range of the camera worked really well and ...
