Leica M type 240- video review. (Non of the written here is relevant to the photo section of this camera)
"Deep into the 4th year of the HDSLR revolution Leica released the M 240, their full frame camera costing $6950.
Spending a day with the camera left me wondering, was Leica ever talking to any professional cameraman before implementing HD recording for this unit or just decided to “join a trend” without really meaning this camera to be a capable working video tool?.
In my opinion the video quality coming out of the camera is very disappointing and its operation in video mode is not easy/logical. I hope features/video quality can be enhance with a firmware update.
Let me start gentle and highlight the M camera’s strengths:"

Very interesting reading. It seems to be a very different movie, made in another way that usual filmmakers would do. @safegaard
