Continuously variable shutter speedgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Leica Photography : One Thread
In short, what does that term mean exactly? I read that an SL2 has a continously variable shutter speed, and if it does, then I have been using it without realising what it is. Duh... So please someone explain this a little, as contrast to non-continuosly variable shutter. Thanks, and happy shooting.

Its like an M5 - you can set intermediate speeds anywhere inbetween two marked speeds.

... and the speeds will be accurate.

You can set the shutter of an M6 between marked shutter speeds, and you will get in-between, but unpredictable shutter speeds. This does not work between two particular sets of shutter speeds. One set is the range from 1/8 to 1/15 as pointed out above. Duh, I can't recall what the other pair of speeds is... :-(
The answer, happily, is somewhere in the archives. Just seek and ye shall find :-)

With a Leicaflex the shutter speeds that will not be accurate are between 1/4 and 1/8 sec, and between 1/30 and 1/60 sec.
