Weird Stuff

Leica Lens Holder Turns Leica Lens Into A Stability-Enhancing Handle

Fri July 29, 2011

Leica Lens Holder M

Leica Lens Holder M

OK,I don’t know if the title made any sense to you but the whole thing does not make sense to me. I will speak slowly: this is a lens holder — made by Leica — that needs the use of a second lens — also made by Leica — to be used together as a stability-enhancing handle — for the Leica MP and M7 cameras. Comprende?

According to Leica, the “Leica Lens Holder M allows you to keep a complete mini photo outfit – a camera and two lenses – hanging on your carrying strap and ready for use.” You simply screw it into the tripod bushing, insert a second lens into its bayonet mount, and use the contraption as a stability-enhancing handle or as a mini tripod. The M system lens holder fits all analogue Leica M models except the Leica M5. If I may say so, that’s probably the most expensive mini tripod I’ve ever seen.

Yes, I checked and it’s not April 1st. Not only did someone at Leica come up with the idea — but it got approved!

LEICA S2 FIRMWARE UPDATE FW 1.0.1.8 NOW AVAILABLE

Solms, Germany (July 28, 2011) – Leica Camera AG has released a new firmware update for the Leica S-System, FW 1.0.1.8. All Leica S2 and S2-P cameras will now be supplied with the latest firmware version. Users wishing to bring their camera up-to-date can download the firmware update from the “Owners Area” on the Leica website and take advantage of the latest improvements.

The firmware update FW 1.0.1.8 includes a revision of the setting procedure for auto-bracketing. Now, the shutter-release button must only be pressed once to activate the full bracketing sequence. This function is particularly useful for shooting bracketed exposures for HDR post-processing. Additionally, the menu-control button at the top right of the camera can now be programmed to carry out a custom function, allowing users quick access to settings. This improvement gives photographers a further opportunity to customize the Leica S2 and S2-P to meet their individual needs and demands.

For installation instructions and to download firmware update FW 1.0.1.8, please visit: https://owners.leica-camera.com.

DCVIEWS Says Goodbye

Thu July 28, 2011

Sebastian Pennings has decided that, after 10 years of serving its dedicated community of photographers, it was time to stop publishing. He cites Web-pollution and other lowering of standards in the quality of camera reviews as the main reason behind this decision. He also believes there are enough good review sites out there to support an increasingly sophisticated photography community. DCVIEWS will remain open until the end of the year.

Our DCViews website will remain operational until the end of this year to service as a historic reference for digital cameras and the associated reviews.

We thank you all for your continued support over all these years and wish you all the best in your digital photography endeavors.

Sebastian Pennings

We’ve enjoyed DCVIEWS reviews and have featured them here. We hope they will reconsider and maybe reinvent themselves into a new site, perhaps dedicated to a narrower section of the photography community. So, Good Luck to Sabastian Pennings and his team and here’s our best wishes to their future Web pursuits!
