Leica S2 Sample Shot
Now that I'm done with my M9 review, I'm getting back into S2 mode. In about a week, I should be postng a similar in-depth, hands-on review of the S2, from my time with it in Germany. To hold you over till then, I'm providing one of the studio shots I took with the S2 during my test.
Please keep in mind that this is on a pre-production camera with pre-release firmware (the camera read v0.0.0.0). Also, posting the full size JPG wouldn't be practical as it was 38MB, so, I've downsized the full image to 1500x1000 and provided a 1250x1796 pixel 100% crop as well. Enjoy. More to come!
UPDATE: There were some comments made that the images I posted yesterday were oversharpened and that there was noise in the shadows. Upon checking the file on an Eizo monitor today, I wholeheartedly agree. I had previously worked on this image only on my laptop.... good reason to use an Eizo for this type of work. I also thought the color saturation was too high and the image was quite warm. So, I reprocessed the image in Capture One and finished it in Photoshop. Getting a useable conversion out of C1 was very, very difficult without a profile, so the file did require a lot of adjustments in PS to get the colors right. So, please check these new files out and forget I ever posted the other set yesterday. Thank you.
