  • Created photos From the first roll...
    Rainbow over Mt Pelion East, in Tasmania's Cradle Mt - Lake St Clair National Park. This was from the first roll out of my 'new' M2, shot with a CV 35/f2.5 Color Skopar on Superia 400 (not a fan of ...
  • Created discussions M2 + CV 35mm Colour Skopar
    My first post in the Leica forums and my first Leica! A 'new' 1965 M2 (lever rewind and self-timer), picked up with a Voigtländer 35mm f2.5 Colour Skopar. Hopefully I'll have a few rolls to share soon.
  • I've also got a few Wasabi batteries for the GR which have worked perfectly.
  • As someone who's currently looking to buy an A7r, these are the things that bug me about the current line-up: - Merge the A7/r models. I want the 36mp chip. I don't want an AA filter. I want hybrid ...
  • Interesting set, but architecturally, #7 isn't 'brutalist' ;)

  • I'm a little bit puzzled by your question. You're talking about swathes of purple in the shadows, but you're showing purple flare in the highlights (it's definitely flare, I've had two examples of ...
  • For digital my 'regular' kit is an EM5 with 7-14mm, 12mm, 17mm, Nokton 25mm, 45mm and 75mm. I also shoot film off and on with a Pentax MX and M50/f1.4 (hoping to add an LX, K24/f2.8 and M100/f2.8 ...
  • Thanks everyone :)
  • Yep :) I usually carry mine in a jeans pocket and it fits fine. As mentioned above, it's a similar footprint to my iPhone 5s and a bit thicker. Importantly, it's a lot lighter than it looks.
  • Created photos Dark MoFo, Hobart
    A collection of shots from Hobart's winter arts festival; Dark MoFo. All shot with a GR (V), which I've been absolutely loving for tripod work! More here :)
  • DPR, I'm curious to hear your thoughts about the sustainability of using 1.2kg of aluminium to create a 94g shell? Even assuming the waste aluminium is reused, this still requires a great deal of...

  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    I've obviously missed something here... What does anything you've just written have to do with not needing exposure comp?

    With all the fancy new tech you mention (like, for instance, live...

  • "a healthy person (that does fail conscription check) should be able to carry 1/3 of body weight and dash reasonably fast."

    As a professional hiking guide, this is a complete and utter load of...

  • If people haven't read he Nat Geo article that this was shot for, I highly recommend it - fantastic journalism.

  • As a PRESS photo, it is exceptional. In and of itself I find it to be a captivating image, taken in the context of the story it relates to, it is simply fascinating.

  • Figured this would appear eventually, smart move by Cosina.

    I'll stay happy with my old Type I :)

  • 'Todi Light' wouldn't have been my #1 but far-out, every shot in the 25 shotlisted for the award is remarkable.

    Excellent example of That Which Is Good About Photography!

  • I thought the new CEO indicated that Hasselblad was over this... Apparently not.

  • Just about spot on I think, and I reckon that this would look phenomenal printed BIG (I'm partial to landscapes with people in them...) Great work :)
