Guest post: Street photography with Leica M Monochrom and Noctilux M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH lens

Guest post: Street photography with Leica M Monochrom and Noctilux M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH lens | Technical & Social News | Scoop.it

(...) "So, when I was given the chance to try the brand new Leica M Monochrom, with the Leica M Noctiliux 50mm F0.95 ASPH, I happily accepted the offer. It was a pre-production model with a firmware like 0,0012 or something like that, but fully functional. Because of the extreme narrow depth of field of the Noctilux, only 1 cm when focused at 2 meter, I was given a small additional magnifier lens for the viewfinder. Because I am wearing glasses this gave me an even smaller field of view through the viewfinder. The size of the Leica Noctilux is also relatively big, in comparison with the Summilux 50mm F1.4, and therefore blocks part of the viewfinder. A positive aspect of the size of the lens is the very nice focusing ring which fits perfectly in your hand and give the combination of the Monochrom and lens a good balance. I decided to make a small tour in town to shoot as much street portraits wide open at F0.95 as possible."

The new Leica M as a filmmaker’s tool – an interview with Leica’s Jesko von Oeynhausen, by Andrew Reid

The new Leica M as a filmmaker’s tool – an interview with Leica’s Jesko von Oeynhausen, by Andrew Reid | Technical & Social News | Scoop.it

Posted by Andrew Reid on September 24, 2012


"Leica revealed their new M series camera at Photokina 2012. It marks the first time video has been implemented on a Leica M, with a brand new full frame 35mm CMOS sensor developed in Europe by CMOSIS.

EOSHD went along to interview Product Manager for the M-System Jesko Von Oeynhausen to find out what it means for filmmakers. Please note that the camera is at the moment a pre-production camera (firmware version 0.0.20.1) with an expected list price of €6200."


(...) EOSHD: "My first question is around the sensor size, I know before you were using a CCD sensor, and now it is a European made CMOS sensor (by CMOSIS). Was it optimised for both stills and video?

Jesko: Yes it is.


EOSHD: So I guess you are taking the video quality seriously, it is not just an add-on for live-view?

Jesko: It is really nice, we don’t publish the results yet but we start shooting early next year. The image quality tuning is the thing we do last, we start with calibrating and developing the electronics then you begin to optimise image quality on the digital side. This has not yet been done but we know how it looks today, especially high ISO quality is so promising.


EOSHD: What is the megapixel count?

Jesko: 24MP


EOSHD: I guess to scale 24MP down to 2MP for 1080p – can you tell me how the sensor is read out?"
