Pros:Leica: compactness, strength, reliability, stealth, mechanical and file quality.
Cons:missing video, missing fire control if not with rangefinder (but that's okay) and the price.
Opinion:Monochrom ccd + 50mm summicron f2rnrnTestrnrnChe machine..rnI had already known the MM cmos of Daniele.rnThe feeling is the same. In this model is missing the ability to make videos even if hardly those who buy it will use it mainly for this (but it annoys me) the monitor is a bit 'smaller and obsolete, and you can not push the ISO as the most recent means. But there are good used ones and I would like to enter the Leica world with a new kit, hoping to maintain its value in the future.rnrnThe car is wonderful, sensibly narrower than the older sister. Those who know the Leica system can only worship it, those like me born born with the reflex film will have to understand if it is with the rangefinder because here it lacks the ability to have the external viewfinder and we do not have the magnification to monitor to control the fire at frame of the frame, but at the bottom of the rangefinder or you love it (and tell us) or hate it. I feel good. rnrnAfter a long brief with Mattia del Leica store Firenzand I understood perfectly how to expose it. As always, maximum attention not to burn the highlights and then you find a file with a dynamism of incredible shadows. rnrnSe base with cmos contrasts a bit 'images here maybe soften and then push the ends of the curve, given the excellent acutance, but the feeling of maximum control over all darker tones is the same. And it is still subjective. rn Maybe for the way I shoot with the ccd I will already be closer to the final result but there are those who prefer to have a softer file and give it their taste in pp. rnrnAnche the pleasantness of the shot is the same, embellished with some optional as the ability to shoot silently and then release the finger and emit the sound once left the subject, great for stolen photos or in particularly quiet settings. rnrnI hope to be able to put the budget that I need but I am determined to reach the lens within the year and be able to get me somethinghe beautiful old lens, with which I think the ccd from its maximum if you are not looking for an extreme resolving that has never affected me as much as the control of the latitude of the pose. rnrnSurely my next car, just a question of vile money and unpleasant time now. rnrnhttps: //www.juzaphoto.com/galleria.php? l = en & t = 2668055rnrnhttps: //www.juzaphoto.com/galleria.php? l = en & t = 2668056rnrnhttps: //www.juzaphoto.com/galleria.php? l = en & t = 2668057rnrnhttps: //www.juzaphoto.com/galleria.php? l = en & t = 2668069rnrn
Pros:Among the many, in my opinion, the greater the really extreme workability of files produced. rnSe not you just picture the wrong (ie blown highlights) can almost rape them ... even at iso incurred.
Cons:There are: purchase price, customer care slow, obsolete display.
Opinion:I am not an expert photographer or even a fan of the Leica brand (no awe, adoration, or hate) and my first digital rangefinder I got there after climbing the world full frame Canon cameras and L series (with satisfaction, I have learned so much thanks to the SLR world). RNLA curiosity, a touch of recklessness and dissatisfaction background for the photograph "muscular" (for weights and technological prestazionalismo in the game) led me to want to try this alternative photographic "simplified" then that is not so easy to ' beginning of the transition but it is not anything so complicato.rnVenendo a 5dmarkIII this MM is so basic that you finish soon to play with the menus and options and see you soon forced to give you too much to do on the field without thinking about it. What can I say, the system M and the rangefinder I'm used early enough (even if sometimes I still miss the "tele side" and the "macro side") and after almost a year of ownership I still marvel at many of the files obtained: soft and doughy and thevorabilissimi beyond any possible comparison with those produced by 5dmarkIII. It 'just another world. In words I can not explain: you have to get out of LR and Silver Efex Pro and play with the sliders of the various parameters. Do not recover at all whites burned the left side of the histogram will have access to a virtually endless prairie wild and you can roam far and wide .. even if you are kept iso a bit 'high. In my ignorance these are the things that most impressed me this car: very easy to use after a short apprenticeship and pushers of raw files on which the only limit is your post production capabilities bring out the massimo.rnComplessivamente the machine body if I give an 8 and not more because the display so outdated really is not acceptable. If it is true that this brand care maniacally details (and many things can be seen and touched with the hand) - given the price you pay - must in my opinion even better in this aspect. With the benefit of hindsightare still very happy with the transition from reflex to M and to have preferred this "old" Monochrom the most modern Type240. I had to, sooner or later, need to sell it to realize I will surely be sorry molto.rnrn
Pros:Having a car unique (see review below) rnRisolvenza amazing in terms of ASPH lens; rnScala tonal exaggerated; rnGestione despite high ISO level is equipped with CCD sensor;
Cons:Cost; rnScattare only BW;
Opinion:The Leica M Monochrom FF is the first digital camera, designed exclusively to generate native images BW. rnih truth they do all the cameras in the world but it is thanks to the RGB matrix (usually Bayer, but there is a Foveon) that are "translated" the colors. In MM has not been done is remove the matrix in order to allow the imprinting of reality in his native language. Not only that, by doing so we obtained a significant increase in resolution, in fact, the pixels are used just for BW image, record the actual luminance values, as also on the M9 there is no AA filter. The noise is much lower due to better management of high ISO (practically insignificant within the 6,400, but more than acceptable) no longer a "problem" as FOUND on M9, finally the result is an extension of the high tone range. In my opinion, the picture that arises is not comparable with one click digital desaturated or otherwise made the BW conversion,the. DNG uncompressed MM is particularly malleable (flat say overseas) ready for every forcing the user wants to go further to be to 36MP? Clearly, this does not mean that we can not do BW level cameras normali.rnHo conducted with respect . RAW generated from the best cameras on the market, not to speak of the person reading it somewhere on the web and in collaboration with Prof friends, and I have not found DSLR that makes me think that. DNG Monochrom were "inferior", for clarity, tonal range or recovery of the shadows. The display, not actually identical to the height of the machine and the M9, I appears as a weak point, because the consulting only to analyze the histogram of the raw data. I then suffered the perception of the data before processing, a real help for the accuracy of the exposure. This represents a difference, ameliorative, in my opinion, than the analog. With MM, it's all very "Franciscan", simple to the extreme, no frills, maybe this is the philosophy of Leica, you reC but I have not yet taken advantage of the famous Whitewall, the press service of the users Monochrom that allows you to make prints on baryta BW always, from the development in the chemical bath silver halide and (say) the prints are on a par if not better than the cousins ??analog printed from negatives. On this point I stop because for the chapter release, and particularly fascinating natural outlet of the files Monochrom, it would take a treaty? RnTornando the machine, the focus is completely manual, aperture priority unless, through the ring just for making focus on all lenses (including those antiwar, they are all compatible?) via telemetry in high precision, especially in situations where AF systems do not engage. The Galilean viewfinder allows the control of the subject during shooting because they do not exist with the rangefinder that moment of darkness SLR at the time of lifting the mirror (person shooting with both eyes open). RnQuanto said, however, is not worth anything if I do not I had made up his mind to think in black and white qhen shooting, this is the turning point of the machine compared to the rest of the considerations. Understanding the scenes in lights and shadows, capture the essence of what they catch, regardless of anything else. Precisely for this reason I have "limited" to only have MM. rnUtilizzo the Monochrom with ASPH lenses, such as 35 APO Summicron Summilux FLE 75 and, more recently, 12 hp, which will surely pull the neck to the sensor and they do make full, the blades are in risolvenza of the details, but also the brush in focus, but also record the metrics in the correct planes of fire, but also dreamlike (perhaps I exaggerate) in conferring those dreamy tunes, as well as very high contrast. rnSu this point, by many, I read reviews of professionals (who are also amateur, but I do not think I could compare them by reading their names?) who prefer the use of spherical optics MM, also third-party brands and sometimes even LTM ( lives with adapter). The images have low contrast and greater (even more! Here really exaggerate?) Tonal range. These readings cC handle or GPS, or make videos). Alternatively, if the design of the Leica resumption Kodak 29MP CCD processor? I falter, although I imagine the costs already iperbolici.rnSi, this is the final part, is expensive? ok, very true, no argument against my part, when we talk about this Leica is the rock prince. In my case I can say that I totally rich, indeed, but my tempter (see dealer) convertivo knowing that 90% of captured images with the M9, has treated me well in the evaluation of the latter, and we have reached a svenarmi purchase agreement without the Monochrom. I honestly weighed the consideration of, unfortunately, inexorable devaluation of the M9 and have also accepted another in exchange by the venditore.rnrnTengo to point out that this is my point of view after nearly 1 year of use, solely the result of my impressions of trials n is in the process of shooting situations than in PP, but they are still an amateur, so what is narrated clearly has no claim to be exhaustive, it tanto less than scientificità.rn
