April 2013 - Right after receiving Leica's new M camera I had the chance to use it for an insight into the world of fire artistry and juggling presented by two exceptionally charming and creative girls. Enjoy Caro and Kathleen from "Duo Flammenspuk":

The stills and motion pictures were captured with a Leica M (Typ 240) and the following lenses (mostly at open aperture): Leica Summilux 50mm f/1.4 ASPH, SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 50mm T0.95, Nikon AFS-Nikkor 24mm f/1.4 G ED. Please note that the flabby sequences you may determine during motion video were not caused by the camera. Due to some shaky handheld recording the motion pictures had to be deshaked in post production.
