Old door (Leica X1) - Leica X1
The texture of this centuries-old wooden door really tested the capabilities of the Leica Elmarit lens and gave a revealing performance.

Photo comment By Craig: Dear David, Thanks for sharing your photos online. I am currently waiting for my own X1 to arrive and the Leica dealer is making me wait. Anyways, I was wondering if I could ask you somes questions about the camera. What do you think of the image stabilization function on the camera? Is it useful? I heard it doesnt work when you want to shoot raw. Do you use the stabilization function? Thanks for your time. Craig
Photo comment By David Askham: Hello Craig, Thank you for your message. At first I thought the method of image stabilisation designed into the Leica X1 would not appeal to me because of its limitations. But the more I explored the capabilities of this delightful compact Leica I realized that it could be useful within its design parameters. So I always have the facility switched on in the menu for those rare occasions. It is designed to work when the combination of maximum lens aperture, shutter speeds within the range 1/4s to 1/30s and with sensitivities up to ISO 1600. So it becomes a useful feature in low light situations provided there is no significant subject movement. Two exposures are taken, in a very quick sequence, and combined into one image. It is a useful facility despite its limitations. It does work with raw capture. I hope you soon receive your X1. David
