km25: Shooting with Leica, no 1/8000, no high speed motor drive, no auto multi points program and AF. The leicas work best, my opion with flim. so when you push the button you know what you will get, no looking at the LCD, there is one now. After you process or it processed you are rarely surprised. It is often a second camera, for the slow intimate times, were the sutter noise is very importan, like a movie set.

The 44min film "Die Leica Geschichte - Lichtblick aus Wetzlar" by Dorothee Kaden shown by German TV ARD/HR shows that Oskar Barnack the maker of Leica constructed microscope for Leitz and was a amateur movie maker with a problem to determine the exact sensibility (ISO today) of the 35mm film he used. Each roll of film had a different value. So he engined a solution making a small apparatus to use a strip of the film, take some photos and after processing determine what was the best aperture to be used by his movie camera. So the Ur-Leica was born. The film in German is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWwarnnM71A

On EXIF tracking services help find missing cameras article (77 comments in total)
In reply to:

Peter Galbavy: I once got a call from a stranger who had just bought a Canon D60 (yes, 2002 it was) and asked why my name and mobile number was in his EXIF under Copyright.

Turns out that my first D60, which I returned after 2 days with hot pixels in the rear LCD, got shipped back to Canon and then refurbed and just pushed out to another (different) retailer. The gent in question went to have strong words with Canon and the retailer.

Sigh.

Please, how is it possible to write the own's name for all EXIF file generated by a Nikon D3100? Not after a photo was taken.
