  • Well.  It says "Dodge" right on the front of the grill.  Must be a Dodge !
  • Replied in M8 good deal?
    Check E-Bay for some comparisons.   It's low use and resonable condition bring it's price up a bit over average for an M-8.   Might shop around just a bit.  As it is almost new it's not too bad.
  • The M8 is a fine camera.  The main factors are the sensor is not full frame and it had some banding issues that required a filter correction on the lenses.  The M8.2 corrected the banding issue and...
  • Why not buy a Lecia?   I learned to take photo's back in the 1960's with a Lecia IIIC that my father gave me  when he moved on and got a M2 and M3.    I was lucky to  get the full screw mount kit. ...
  • It has a general softness to the entire picture.  I can't tell what your focus point was.  I guess if you are after this kind of soft portrait work its just fine.   I'd rather see a sharp face with...
  • Excellent look from an unusual point of view.   Well taken.
  • Merci!!!!! Very well said.  Glad to have your point of view.
  • I agree the second one is better.   Was that a crop or a zoom in?   It gives more of a feel of a cold walk.
  • I"d think the place to ask that question is DxO, not 'Leica Talk".  If anyone should answer your question is the vendor of the product you are using.   Just seems to me.
  • C-41 film processing is available in many parts of the US.   If you do a search with "bing' or 'Google' you will find a number of them.  Some still honor mail in envelopes.   Darkroom does sheet...
  • What a great "Troll".   Brought a great laugh and smile.  Thanks
  • Created questions Digital Photo Backup
    This may seem like old hat to many of you - How do you backup your photo libraries?   Do you use a second hard drive in the same PC, external hard drive, on-line backups?   Do you make multiple...
  • Absolutlely give her the Digilux 2.   At her age the understanding of electronics, computers, etc. is so far advanced from when we were that age it will be a snap for her to learn.  Make sure you...
  • Well.  Wasn't SONY the same company that developed and marketed BETAMAX?   They would not licence the format to others and as a result VHS machines took over the market.   Can you find a BETAMAX...
  • I like the composition and the color saturation.  If you lighten them up you may lose some of the color saturation.   That is what really caught my eye.   Nicely done.
  • Replied in Leica M
    I ordered my M9-P in Chrome.  It took a bit over 6 months for delivery... Minnesota, USA.  Considering that Leica is resolving a production issue with the Lugs, opening a new production plant, has...
  • For me the color is far better.  The B & W looks like an accidental snap shot. Actually so does the color.  The picture does not seem to show or tell any kind of story, to me.   I don't think the...
  • I send you great sympathy for your loss.   I have the very same Lecia gear in my collection.  They were my fathers back pre WWII.   They went with him during the war in the Pacific.  I have had...
  • The older screw mount Lecias are all quite similar, if you have one that has the veiw finder and rangefinder.  Some models were used for specific uses that did not need them.   So.  .  . I suspect...
  • Jim, Your creativity with the use of photographic tools continues to challenge us all to improve.  Your new web site is wonderful.  An excellent example of the craft.
