A sample of photographs captured with my new Leica X1.

Nothing exciting but a test of the camera’s capabilities.

I really like the JPEGS straight out of the camera and have managed to replicate the black and white film style into a preset for Lightroom.

As you can see black and white have great contrast:

I am also very pleased with the colour rendition:

Dynamic range is good too, it allows me to create some great effects…
