MartinaB: Just beautiful. Photography is amazing now, but it was amazing back when. I have done some big format work and there is something intangible , hard to describe about it. If you can go see the show! If you can, buy an old 8x10 and try this film. Be patient and you will be rewarded.
I've used 8x10 for decades and made tons of alternative process prints. I understand and embrace the concept of wabi-sabi. The examples shown are very creative and exploit the characteristics of the film.
Having said that I also think this product is way over priced CRAP and never plan to use it.
Youngsters purchase good film and support film manufacters this stuff is dodo.
Oops I'm repeating myself.
jhinkey: This lens and the OM-D E-M5 may make me finally get into m43 for a compact alternative to my Nikon D700 + FX lenses.
We have an embarrassment of riches with superlative new cameras and lenses and what do we get? Petty groaning and griping, things haven't ever been so good.
lxstorm: SLR/DSLR is a superior instrument optically it let you see what you are shooting that is a very important addendum for a person who do care about image outcome :) " 'tunnel-vision' of an SLR" just a bloody Leica M marketing nothing more.
Second SLR/DSLR lenses could deliver same/better IQ even in case of film media and for digital capture DSLR concept works better due to angle of incidence issue in case of silicon.
Third leaf shutter lenses do render image differently that is true but Leica M lenses are not.
Fourth only camera with movements let you shoot wide open on various occasions Leica has no movements.
Fifth knowledgeable photographer can survive handling tripod or Broncolor powerpack and 99% of occasions that would blow Leica M out of the water.
For most shooters M body just a compact seriously overpriced status travel camera with an obtrusive outdated viewfinder/focusing mechanism that is true. Leca M lenses deliver spectacular IQ being used wide open that is true too.
What a load.
samhain: 'Pros' took those? My dog takes better photos than that, particularly the 2 from Christian Fletcher. He must be someone's nephew. I agree with johnmatrix, fuji needs to get their money back from those 'pros' and hire new marketing people & photographers. Those pics do nothing to help the camera. Can't comment on the virus link, imo the photos aren't worth clicking on.
Hey samhain - your a phucking moron. Get a life!
Alfie Smith: Noob question: Is this a rangefinder or a DSRL?
No you don't know what you are talking about. And your attempt at analogies simply fail.
The sensors used for the M9 are excellent and have nothing to do with Kodak's marketing and sales failures.
Move along, you are simply trolling!
