  • I installed the ScreenPatronus on my M8 in early 2007.  The camera has been to Leica twice for repair, and even had its top plate replaced, but the ScreenPatronus has stayed on the LCD through it all.
  • Welcome back Cody.  I hope shooting has been going well. One fact - the dollar is currently strong against the euro. A conjecture - the initial demand has been met and now the model is just another ...
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFutocP_OSg ;-)
  • I cannot dispute the comments others have placed here on the M240. I would like to offer a different angle that might sway you to the older camera. The M9 is a superb 18MP imaging machine, perhaps ...
  • I celebrate the big 50 this year, so I am looking for something special.  I'm not thrilled with the shade and sheen of the green on the current Safari, at least in pictures.  I would prefer a ...
  • Do share the story behind the picture. Eric
  • I've had a ScreenPatronus on my M8 since 2007.  I had a pack of Hoodman screen covers and am using one of those on the XV now.
  • Tell us more about how and what you shoot now.  That will help guide the advice. I take snapshots of people, places, and things, and when I have to pack for a 1-lens trip, it's 75% 35/1.4, 25% 28/2.8.
  • Replied in Don't go cheap
    The xv was a $999 investment, don't scrimp on the case.  You could wind up with something with poor quality, or even worse, made of materials that damage your camera.  Fumes from glue or leather ...
  • Leerob, I am glad you received the same deal I found.  Kenmore camera was my seller too. My camera came without the hotshot/EVF socket cover.  I called Leica USA and they sent one out for free. The ...
  • I snagged one of twelve CPO cameras from Kenmore Camera for $999. I don't know if more are coming or not.
  • There are bargain kits with the 50 and 75 Summarit on the market right now. I saw the M240 and the 2 lenses for $6500 US. Eric
  • The black chrome vs anodized finish is an interesting trade.  I own a couple of lenses from the 1970's and have seen many more, and so long as you don't hit them with something hard and sharp, ...
  • Maybe pick up the new 50/APO too to complete the kit. Have fun!
  • Always nice to share different processes.  Thanks for the post. Eric
  • Replied in Nice results
    I've been playing with the vintage Leica IR filters and have achieved similar results. I do find I need to shift the focus to between f/4 and f/5.6 for optimum sharpness.  Also I find the built-in ...
  • Replied in So very tempted
    Cody, Welcome back.  I hope you've been enjoying shooting the past few weeks. I must admit, I have wanted a safari camera for a few years, but they've always exceeded the money in the checking.  I ...
  • Replied in 3 techniques
    3 steps:  focus - recompose - shoot 2 steps:  compose - shoot (assumes presetting lens to hyperfocal distance) 1 step:  shoot (assumes presetting lens to hyperfocal distance and choosing something ...
  • Albert, If you look at the professional video industry, you will see lots of higher-end gear which you do not wish to know about.  I respectfully recommend a little research so you know what you ...
  • So, there are a number of technical discussions we might wish to pursue here, but the bottom line up front, splurge on a high-quality yellow filter and give it a try. One argument for optical ...
