Pier 59 with the assistance of Leica have been testing the RED DSMC Leica-M mount in NY this week... The results have been incredible.
Thought I would share some of the feedback :
"I had a dream 10 years ago that I would mount our Noctilux-M onto a small "box" and motion would come out of it. Today that dream came true. It was Epic.
Now that EPIC works with the LEICA-M mount, RED has just opened cinema to the world of still photography in a way that no other motion picture camera has ever been able to do."
"The NOCTILUX is the END-OF-THE-LINE in available light candid image capture; it is not just about the speed of, but the ineffable mystique of the lens. Similarly, it is not enough to simply put this lens on a camera; the RED EPIC is the perfect match, as it brings the handheld, LEICA-M single operator world of voyeuristic street photography Into the realm of cinema."
