| p.1 #9 · Leica M8 as B&W only camera |
Question about the M8 / M8.2 ....
(1) if using as B&W only (more or less), what is it like at higher /max iso. Or more importantly, do you get any banding? I like grain, but hate banding.
(2) again, if using as B&W only, do you really need the IR filter in front of the lens? I ask as I don't like using filters on good lenses, and the moire correction seems a pain (not automated, masking off etc), which would put me off.
1: Never had problems with it, but never really used the highest ISO that much so not that sure.
2: For B&W the filters aren't really needed. The filters have nothing to do with moire so don't know whats the point of that. Its only to pretend black fabric getting purple because of the IR light.
However, the UV/IR filters from leica are fine, I never had problems with them.
