Seen at IBC and PhotoPlus Expo NYC, this new adapter from Peter Denz turns the Leica M into a superb Director’s Finder. The PL-to-M mount adapter provides extra support for heavy PL lenses. It attaches to the latest Leica M 240 in place of the camera’s existing base. (If you’re concerned about warranty, better check in advance.)
A sliding cover provides access to SD Card and camera battery. Since the new M has a CMOS sensor with live view, you can compose on the camera’s rear monitor or with its (highly recommended) accessory EVF. And yes, the Leica M shoots rather good HD video should you want to film decisive moments 24 times a second.
The adapter will be available from CW Sonderoptic in Wetzlar and distributors near you.
