You have to have $$ to buy Leica. I bought a couple of used Lecia's on ebay when my mom died and left me a little $ or I could not afford one. Prior to that I used an old 6mp Epson RD1 rangefinder digital cam.
The ASC Cine Classic mode simulates a classic, analog 35mm motion-picture film look, while the ASC Contemporary mode delivers the current digital style of contemporary movies.
I'd like to see what the Cine Leica produces in photos.
OP, we all make mistakes. Art is not a precise science that runs by formula. When you work fast, as many of us do, we screw up once in a while. Just gotta suck it up if you are moving on to digital. I have kept some film cams, but I disposed of most of them.
I guess the lto's can be a nightmare if things don't work out...
Terrible support & software, Rarely works on Mac, don't buy
I'm a big believe in LTO for data storage and archiving. It's cost effective and secure, easy to safely store lots of data for many years. This is no solution though. I'm running it to a Mac pro over thunderbolt 2 via a Highpoint Rocketstor I/O box. I have 12 or so tapes of data archived. A recent Mac OS update seems to have killed the drives ability to mount tapes (again). I have spent lots of time with the friendly HP folks in India, have had two replacements overnighted (which took almost two weeks). There is an obscure program called HPE Library and Tape Tools which is the only way to check or update firmware from a Mac. With a little digging through HP's bafflingly awful, sprawling mess of a Web presence, it can be found, downloaded, and installed, but then it does not work on Mac. There is no way to update firmware, no way to decipher the many bizarre error codes and malfunctions it has, barely any way to convince HP's tech support that they even sell LTO drives (just google this drive and see what actual info and support you can find). Terrible. definitely go with Tolis, mLogic, anyone else.
