Présentation de l'éditeur

The 24-megapixel Leica M (Typ 240) is the latest digital rangefinder model that replaces the M9. Leica dropped the numbering system that has identified its rangefinders since the M3 was introduced in 1954, yet the simply elegance of its design still takes its cue from earlier models, and is available in black or chrome. Despite this, the M is definitely a camera for the 21st century. The first rangefinder to use a full-frame CMOS image sensor, it enables live view, and offers a choice of magnified view or focus peaking for precise through-the-lens manual focusing. It is also the first M model capable of movie shooting, capturing 1080p footage at 25 or 24 frames per second. The camera has a 920k dot rear LCD with scratch-resistant cover. Compact for a full-frame camera, it measures 3.1 by 5.5 by 1.7 inches, but its brass and magnesium construction gives it a heavy-for-its-size weight of 1.5 pounds. A large optical viewfinder is located in the top right corner of the body and a second, smaller window towards the left; this captures a patch of light and together with the viewfinder, serves as a rangefinder mechanism. Peering through the viewfinder the center is brighter than the surrounding area, because it shows light from both windows. When the lens is out of focus the image in the center will be ghosted; when the lens is focused the patches align to form a single image. Framelines are illuminated using internal LED lights in a choice of red or white. Although the framelines are not visible when the camera is turned off, they are easy to see in dim lighting. The 0.68x magnification finder keeps the same sets of framelines that have been built into the M series since the M9: depending on the lens that's mounted, 28mm and 90mm, 35mm and 135mm, or 50mm and 75mm.

Ce livre n'iffre en fait pas beaucoup plus que la notice en améliorée... On reste sur sa faim quand à des trucs ou des astuces. On en apprend bien plus sur les blogs ou les forums... Heureusement qu'il n'est pas cher

This book is a step by step introduction to the new Leica M 240. I am new to the Leica system and find this book an excellent user's manual. The illustrations are great and the explanations very clear. Great book for the Leica novice.

HASH(0x97045330) étoiles sur 5 I like it, its easy to read 21 juillet 2014

Much appreciated and easier to go through than the user manual. Leica have changed the firmware since this book was written, so there is a little difference in some of the menu structure.

I like it, its easy to read, follow and easily fits in my day pack, that is if one wants a little book to read when travelling. Otherwise a good little reference book.

HASH(0x9767d9f0) étoiles sur 5 Useful Reference Manual 18 septembre 2014
Par WMcL - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The Expanded Guide is an excellent complement to the Leica M Instruction Manual. The text and illustrations are far more informative, simple to follow and easy to comprehend. The book goes beyond the functionality of the Leica M Typ 240, and includes chapters on lenses, flash (albeit there is no reference to Leica's SCA Adapter Set), accessories, and a short guide to working with Adobe Lightroom (but no mention of Image Shuttle or tethering with the Multifunctional Handgrip M). The book is a conveniently sized carry-along reference, and, as the title implies, is an "expanded guide" to the camera's original instruction manual (firmware version had only been made available at the time of its writing). It does provide descriptions of Leica and non-Leica M lenses, but devotes merely one page to lens adapters with no expanded guide to "R-lenses" and their applications. Nonetheless, this book is a worthy purchase and a useful addition to your Leica reference library—meant to explore and appreciate the capabilities of this remarkable digital rangefinder camera.

HASH(0x9729e720) étoiles sur 5 Good Start but Incomplete Treatment of the Leica M 240 16 août 2015
Par SpartySAM - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Lets me start off by stating what this book does, it does well. First, it does provide the reader with a good, logically laid, easy to read and understand treatment of the basics of the M 240. If you are new to the M 240, this is a great place to start. However, after reading it over, I am left with the feeling that this was a minor refresh of this author's M9 book. True, it did add a chapter on movies. However, it overlooked several of the features that make the M 240 so intriguing. First, there is live view. This is an alternative method of focusing the lens that avoids many of the problems with the range finder system. Rather than using the ranger finder system with its problems of parallax, you look through the lens and see what the camera see. Focusing is now a different experience. Second, it ignores for the most part the EVF (electronic view finder). With the EVF, the user has an alternative method of focusing the lens. I have been using this system (with the olympus VF-2 rather than the Leica version) and have found it interesting. It covers the Leica M 240 into a mini Leica DSLR. Third, the author shows how Leica lens can be used on other systems with the appropriate adapters. What he does not cover is that of using the Leica R system lenses on the M 240. When Leica decided to terminate the R line (its SLR system), I could not bear to turn in my R8 and R9. I kept them along with the truly outstanding 35-70mm f4.0 macro zoom - considered by most to the one of the best Leica R lenses ever produced. With Leica's new adapter, I can use that lens on my M 240. This is Nirvana! The downside is that I have to focus using live view. The upside - at this time, Leica R lenses are far cheaper than their M equivalents. For example, the R version of the 28mm f2.8 is less than $500 versus over $1100 for the M Mount. True - the size is bigger but not that bigger. The R series is considered by some (e.g., Thorsten Overgaard, - to be the best lenses Leica ever designed and built. This aspect was overlooked. BTW, it would have been nice if the author had discussed manual coding of lenses - a neat feature overlooked in most books. One of the neat features of the M system is that you use every M lenses going back to the 1954 introduction of the M3. Only recent lenses have lens coding. If you know the coding, you can add it to an old lens and have it work. Finally, the book needs to be refreshed, especially when it comes to flash. The author talks about the SF-2D and the SF-58. The SF-58 has been discontinued (pity). Rather, Leica now offers the SF-26 and the CF22 - again, a minor but annoying omission.

Overall, a good book that reads like an M9 book that has been given a quick but incomplete refresh for the M 240. It is a good introduction to the M system but one that has limited coverage of the really new features introduced in the M 240.

HASH(0x96fb3888) étoiles sur 5 Essential accessory for the Leica M 240. 29 août 2014
Par Old Master - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié

A systematic adventure through the Leica M, feature by feature. But, by expanding on a typical manual by explaining the meaning of the function, this is informative to the novice and the expert. Any user of the Leica M would find this an essential accessory. Considering the cost of the camera itself, these explanations are a sensational bargain. For example, flash photography with the Leica, even with Leica's dedicated flash units, is not just "point and shoot" and the process for success is well explained. Also complicated is the choice of ASA and settings, also clearly described. A great gift for any M owner.
