  • Enrique, I assure you, I am NOT kind!  (well maybe a little).  But you SHOULD be proud.  And keep taking pictures!  My problem is that in the weather we have been having, I take out my little Ricoh ...
  • Enrique, As I scrolled through this marvelous set of images, I thought how they seemed somehow "Leica-ish" (probably just my silly preconception) and many of them seemed timeless. I then noticed ...
  • The third one works so perfectly.  It's all the little details that if they weren't there it would be a nice snapshot - but the expression, the body language, the graffiti and the umbrella. Great job!
  • Didn't anyone tell you the 35mm lens is NOT a portrait lens!  For shame!  :-) Happy Chinese New Year - and yes, that was a SHEEPISH grin... Denis
  • Some really great work - esp the modern building with the one person in it.  I was just thinking how interesting the shots are when there are no people to distract from the architecture and how ...
  • Replied in Night work
    Enrique, Really nice shot, and harder than it looks, like most good candids.  At first, one might think that the bright white light calls too much attention to itself, but of course what it does is ...
  • Rodrigue, Another married man checking in.  Jeez, isn't it enough you do beautiful portraits of her?  You have to get her a CAR? I will admit I'm so bad at car names I thought you'd misspelled ...
  • I did too.  And I especially loved his take on interacting with subjects on the street.  For those who haven't seen the video - he takes the picture first (typically) but then introduces himself, ...
  • I agree.  And the amount of good will it engenders is hard to put a price on.  Not that Leica needs me to shill for them, but I will certainly tell this story (as I have on a public forum) which ...
  • http://blog.leica-camera.com/photographers/interviews/peter-turnley-french-kiss-a-love-letter-to-paris-revisited/ If this doesn't inspire people to go out and take pictures I don't know what will. ...
  • For those who missed it:  I had asked if anyone had a clue why my beloved new (to me - used) X Vario had stopped recognizing any memory cards.  A lot of nice people offered suggestions, but ...
  • For some reason I thought they were in Connecticut.  That's the number I've been calling.  Roxana, who is the person who answers the phone in the technical department has been very sweet.  It's ...
  • I will try that.  I really don't think it's the contacts, but then again who knows? I have a call into Leica Service in connecticutt.  The woman is actually very nice - the guy who sold me the ...
  • Replied in any..
    Oh, I hope you're right.  I will call them and hopefully they will do just what you say.  If it recognized the other card, I would run around the block and dance all the way home.  I will keep you ...

    I will look hard at the card, but I tend to doubt it since it read immediately in the Ricoh GR.  I will try pressurized air once more and see what happens.  Otherwise, I will swallow hard and call ...

    What a lovely and beautifully shot portrait!  The two catchlights in her eyes are a little distracting, but that's just nitpicking. Denis
  • Replied in forgot..
    If you could let me know what type of cleaner to use I will try this, fingers crossed. thanks again, Denis
  • I looked and it didn't seem that there was any bent pins, but it's hard to see.  I'll look again.  What kind of contact cleaner?  Like isopropyl alcohol?  It does take pictures with the internal ...
  • Hi Rodrigue, I tried to blow air into the slot, but will try again.  I'm so hoping that is the issue. The format option is grayed out, sadly, as it just won't see the card.  Also, it's the same ...
  • I assume instructions on setting the camera to "factory adjustment"  is in the manual?  Or is there a menu command?  I definitely will try this first. Thanks, Enrique.
