Imagine the shot with the structure to the far left, with lots of sky above and field to the right.

Edit - below was posted before Wayland's comments on spoil tips

So, lots of sky above, with a horizontal composition for all that negative space? We're already moving back and probably losing the compositional value of the branch and skull, if they are still distinguishable. And then the slope we see on the right and any other ruins/junk are levelled for a field of magic mushrooms....  Imagine a different scene?

I guess that is what I said. Pretty much worthless as I can't imagine using it wide open.

no, what I meant was that as you suck boatloads of air out of the room, it will develop negative pressure and cause air to seep/migrate into the room.  Preferably hrough a passive intake vent and that should be filtered (as I'd be concerned that airborne particles would be pulled into the room and deposited on the freshly sprayed item)

LS lenses on older bodies:
- will mount
- can be manually focused
- no autofocus
- no firing of the actual leaf shutter, focal plane only
- no control of aperture (remains wide open)

So for 99% of applications it's a no go. But it's not impossible to use it.

Man does Leica draw out the emotion.

Lover's, haters, comparers, complainers, fan boys and dagger throwers.  Everyone  is sure that their view is correct,whether they actually use a leica or not.

I love my leicas, wish they made movie cameras, wish I could justify using  everything Leica from PL's to another another 2 S bodies.

Only four cameras companies in my career produce any emotional attachment to me and that's Leica, contax, olympus and RED.

I think the commonality of those four brands are build design/quality and uniqueness.  

Other brands I mostly own, but they're tools, efficient, but tools non the less.

For me if I feel good about about all the elements of image making I shoot better, but don't need to trash one brand to prove my choice was correct.

I'm not that insecure.

Lately I read a lot of blowback from people that c__p on the idea that there is no difference in the look of ccd compared to cmos.

For my work I disagree, for my work I see a difference, a lot of leica buyers must feel the same, because the sales reflect it, though I don't need the validation of others.

I don't take photographs, I construct them and for me photography is not a science project.

Yesterday we shot 16 setups, finished about 10pm lat night.    15 sessions were with the S2 and a RED 1, 1 quick pick up session with a Canon.

I love what we shot and never thought about using a different camera, though I had four cases 5 brands to select from.

But for any other photographer I don't presume to assume my way is right.

It's too personal and  presumptuous, to make that decision for someone else.  

Leica isn't after the dslr market from CandN and their offerings and price points has made that clear.  

The fact there are now 3 prices of S cameras, 25k, 16k or a used/demo S/S2 from 10 to 8k offers a wide range for the same lens mount.

I find that a positive.

You don't own a Leica for logical reasons, but then again photography is not the most logical of endeavors.

One thing that hasn't been mentioned yet... What is the size of the FPS? Can it cover the full 6x4.5 image area? ...and what its flash sync speed is?

Yes, full coverage of full frame backs like the Credo 60, IQ160, IQ280 etc etc.

Flash sync will be around 1/100th-1/125th. If you need faster flash sync then you'd want the Central Shutter system which syncs at 1/250th. If you need very high sync speed you can switch to a DF+ body for flash sync up to 1/1600.

No I don't the LS. Shutter will fire. The older bodies are not supported by the firmware needed to work the leaf shutter. I believe you have to be at a DF body or higher.

To my mind the picture isn't just about the one bulldog and the woman, it also needs the other two open-mouthed canines in the front row. So I would keep the color but try to subdue the pelicans and the frog and lighten up the woman's face just a little.

Hmm Eric.  That open-mouthed canine on the right looks distinctly bearish to me.  Smiley

I have always been a fan of real progress Smiley And I do go out shooting. Now I'm off to run two workshops in the Dolomites with and without mirrors, autofocus, live view, tripods, good light Smiley
Ooh, Dolomites! Keep meaning to go there and do some bike riding and admire the scenery

No,  no user templates.

Trashing the preference file is my next step - I'd hoped to avoid it.

I'll post what happens.
