Steve Huff: Leica M 240 Night Time HD Video samples...with 35 Summarit Lens
Steve Huff: No, it is not, unless that is where you mind is.
SomeLittleShoe: That's actually not true. I've seen GoPro 2.7 k compared to the Red Scarlet
and it is comparable. The video quality of the Leica is not as good as the
photo quality of the Leica. Look up this title at see GoPro compared to Red
Scarlet: . GoPro Hero3 Black @ 2.7k vs. The RED Scarlet Comparison/Low
Misho5z: How about you try low light on that little sensor vs the scarlet? Or the
new dragon sensor coming out with 16-18 stops of dynamic range, this NOVO
camera I heard will have 8-10 stops...
Misho5z: gopro isn't even close to the video quality of the leica m
I'm Joel 709: thats girl . urgh !
Steve Huff: What you see if all I captured. So if you do not see it, neither did I :)
No, did not notice any.
breakit46: Loved the skydiving and thought that Mum got special treatment by the
expert, the spinning would have made me throw up. Brave lady and pretty
crazy Leica video. Looked a fun night all round. Thanks.
Misho5z: The NOVO camera's 1/2.5 BSI sensor won't compare with the S35 size of RED's
camera, plus 2.7k vs 4-6K is no competition, plus usability is limited with
that tiny camera. there's no controls.. just focus and some basic stuff.
TheJPower88: 1:15 this is Video... lol what?...
stockyD90: this is quite impressive! what lens is this with?
supraelita: one of the good things is, focusing with optical aids while shooting videos
(well, I imagine)
Steve Huff: Thats due to the shallow DOF..shooting wide open on a FF sensor will do
that. It is supposed to look soft on the sides. If I shot at f/8, tripod
mounted of a well lit landscape it would be sharp corner to corner.
Feint: Looks kind of bad. I watched in 1080 and honestly it seems like there's no
SomeLittleShoe: see, now you're talking about expensive lenses. You are digressing from the
point I was making. The 4k and 2.7k image is comparable to the Red. I am
not talking about all the expensive lenses and buzzers and bells the Red
has that GoPro doesn't. I don't know if youy are missing my point because
you just can't believe that the little GoPro is really as good as it is or
if you starting a round of oneupsmanship. The GoPro is an awesome camera.
TheCruizer: Not my mind, but YT is weird and rude...
SomeLittleShoe: You are missing my point. I find that often on the internet.
Dion Suurmond: Now I'm left wanting a FF GH3, these lenses do look great! (now wouldn't
that be a kick in the teeth for RED and Sony?)
TLeonLT: I still prefer the CCD sensor in M9. Videos recording is not that necessary
for me personally.
tharbk01: its a youtube channel about photography. im sure with enough reasoning you
could come up with your own sensible conclusion without even finishing the
ganzonomy: hey steve, i know this is the "M" department, but what is your take on the
"M to R" adapter that Leica has released? (Assuming you have an R lens to
test with) Jason :)
Rationalific: Sorry! My joke backfired!
TheCruizer: But the preview thumbnail is a bit misleading. I'd choose another.
director289: Crap, this is great!!!!
Produitscoreens KIM: This looks pretty usable to me in low light ! I think it does well what
it's aimed for: simple video recording for taking family or friends
memories just like you did. Great video dude !
Ludwig Van Pictures: but it is only 25fps right =/?
icy2527: Manual focus only ?
SomeLittleShoe: Have you heard of the NOVO camera made by Radiant Images? It uses the guts
of a GoPro HERO3 Black. The movie "127 Hours" was made with it. The movie
"The Call" with Halle Berry was made with it. The GoPro HERO3 Black has a
picture comparable to the Red Epic and has better video resolution than
SomeLittleShoe: Youve missed my point, and you seem to be in a bad mood. I should just move
on. Have a nice night.
Steve Huff: No I have not because I am not really into video so much. RX1 would be
similar I think.
Rationalific: Oops... Big mistake. Not the best joke, huh? Sorry!
Steve Huff: well seeing that is my stepdaughter...what else would I be asking her? I
thought it was clear...showed the indoor skydiving before asking her if she
was going to do it.
Steve Huff: All will be revealed in my review going live tomorrow :)
Misho5z: plus the wide angle makes details so small, if the comparison had the
scarlet at it's maximum settings+a good prime (not distorted wide angle)
there's nothing in the go pro that will compare, plus they set the same
shutter speeds I think which wasn't needed, but made it even since the
gopro have one, if they had a lower shutter speed on the scarlet, since it
was still shots, it would've done better in low light too.
Misho5z: No!@ The gopro's video codec won't hold up anywhere close to the red
scarlet plus it has distortion, a fixed lens that isn't a good one and a
christopher gundersen: low light performance looks great. but it seem the leica m-series are a bit
overpriced for anything other then street photography and i supose
portraits. i love the form factor and design. i also have used film
rangefinders. but its really hard to justify this when i can get a 5dmkIII
and some L-glass for so much less. but if i could have any camera-lens
combination in the world for free. this would be on my top 3 list for sure.
with a 50mm noctilux-m 0.95 :D
Misho5z: If you watch it on youtube's 10 mpbs max bitrate and compressed in windowed
mode on a 720p or 1080p monitor it's not going to be accurate
Tyler Locke: Wow, such a shame that you cant have a goodlooking girl in a video on
youtube without all the perverts crawling out from under the rocks, great
SomeLittleShoe: I never said the equipment on both cameras is comparable.
sir nube negra: For 7k? Not impressed. ;(
SomeLittleShoe: Only thing now that means anything is comparison to the $400.00 GoPro HERO3
Black.A side by side would convince most people to not buy the Leice for
video. GoPro has but to make a line of cams with changeable lenses to begin
to dominate the video market. Not even the Red would be safe from GoPro
then. It would be true other very expensive cameras, like Red, would have
slightly better quality with certain kinds of lenses. But that quality
difference wouldn't be worth $1000.00's of dollars. :-)
Jasper Tandy: To me, it just came across as you taking video, the person you were
shooting thinking it was a still, and you informing them. "So you would do
that[ on a video, too]?"
Rationalific: I must admit, when I saw that girl with her tongue out and you asking, "So
you would do that?", I didn't quite know the direction your video was going
to take. Thankfully, by the time I got to the "...and so did her mom" part,
I knew you were talking about that wind tunnel.
rj b: Are there any companies out there working on a CCD sensor that's just as
capable of a CMOS sensor so we can get rid of this gawd-awful rolling
Angelchildxx: Too soft on both side. Left and right. The focus is very good only in the
centre. At least this is my impression. Olympus OM-D seems better (except
for the focusing lag)
Steve Huff: The 35 Summarit 2.5 which is gem of a lens, and the cheapest 35mm Leica
pkilla617: @steve huff you should have jumped in there with the leica m lol
Misho5z: and how much is it worth? why isn't everyone buying it then? leica doesn't
do video.. this was just a camera made for photos, a test with a poor video
TheJPower88: I thought so... and it was funny! Nice Lady!
SomeLittleShoe: I never said Leica was primarily for video. You missed my point.
