@jky: a nice photo, taken with a good camera (I have the x1 myself) but what really hits me here is a great landscape! I hope to see it personally one day...

Robert, give me a shout if that day comes and we'll grab some good grade A Alberta beef for dinner.

My purpose with the photo (Lake Louise) was to play with the camera's dynamic range. I had exposed for the sky and managed to pull out some decent detail in the shadows and highlights....

Thanks Dave & John.
The light was just too nice to pass up. Still enjoying the X2 but the slow shot to shot times sometimes kills me (but that's for another thread).
Thanks again,
Jc

Very nice photos in this thread. I'm particularly impressed with the (at least perceived) wide dynamic range of this camera.

Been too busy to post much this week.

We had visitors last week for a brief day and a half or so. My partner's sister and niece. Took them to Great America amusement park. I thought these photos were fun, if not always perfect quality-wise:

Visit with Pia and The Bomb

(Three minute video of the stills.)
All with the X2, of course. ;-)

An assortment of ideas in learning the X2 are bubbling up ...

Godfrey if that is your learning I don't know what can I expect for when you'll have learned the x2 It's more than excellent!

PS: did you always prepare it with LR ?

Thank you both for the compliments! I'm getting there with this camera.

It works in kind of the inverse way from my GXR-M with 28mm lens ... There I tend to work manual focus and let the exposure be automated, here I tend to work auto focus and expose manually. It's the difference in control dynamics.

:-)

Oh yes, this entire set was processed and output to video entirely with Lightroom 4.1. I only jumped into Flare on one shot (the second coffee mug) because I wanted the border frame on that one.

Last Saturday evening at the Mexican Restaurant for my birthday ...


Leica X2
ISO 6400 @ f/4 @ 1/25 s


Note that I had to add grain in Lightroom to get the feel I wanted. It was actually a little too clean ... !

Happy belated birthday! Nice shot, Godfrey. The guy on the left doesn't seem too impressed with your X2

I think he was wondering what the gringo was going to do next... It was mighty crowded in the restaurant that night! :-)

Thanks!

I'm so pleased you started these posts. I probably would have never considered an X2 if I hadn't seen your post but it is a viable choice for someone not able to get an M9. That's what I like about this forum!

Tony, thank you. To me it's like a digital IIIF with a 35mm Summaron. It's about the same size and easily fits in your pocket. Flash just in case. The fixed 35mm has made me a better photographer. I highly recommend both the X1 and X2.
