High-end Video with a Leica D-Lux 6?

Our friends at Fstoppers ask in a post, "Is It Possible To Produce High End Video With A $600 Point & Shoot?" In the right hands, such as those of Ruslan Pelykh - it would appear that the answer is "yes." After using a DSLR and even a RED Epic - after much research, Ruslan chose the Leica D-Lux 6 because he wanted something small, low cost and unobtrusive. With it, he could shoot full 1080p HD video at 60fps (something a Canon 5D Mk3 can't even do). He is able to manually adjust shutter speed, downsample his footage to 24fps, and get nice SloMo. He doesn't go much above ISO 400 because of noise and there's no manual focus capability - so he just shoots with a wider focal length and stops down a bit to gain DoF latitude. Well worth a read. Read more below for a video created with the Leica D-Lux 6!
