crsantin: It's a Lecia commercial and it's pretty tone-deaf considering what is happening in the world. Only Leica owners understand the full depth and meaningfulness of life I suppose.

You could buy yourself into heaven via the Catholic Church back in the middle ages .... Leica thinking

ecovilks: Best buy a disposable camera and have it processed then digitalise the results and see how one feels about the process and results

Why buy a doorstop, very few people are dedicated enough to persist using film and that includes people who cut their teeth with film but have gone digital.
Yea I have sold images shot via a disposable camera

No i don't miss the point I still have my commercial darkroom running and get paid to shoot film and print. No the advice advice to shoot a roll of film in a disposable camera and see how one likes the process

Brotherbill: If you plan to set up a darkroom, shooting film makes sense. Otherwise I don’t see the point.

Of course one does not need a darkroom but it sure does add to the experience digitalising film as the end product is a bit humdrum. I doubt if a newbie would set up a darkroom, mine has been in operation for over 30 odd years

ecovilks: It’s a expensive prototype .... one for the beta testers with deep pockets or those fools on the hill

It’s more about utilising the b&w/colour preset setup that the Pen uses not the body and lens

I am sure it will lead to other positive things but as it is....... maybe combined with what the Olympus Pen F does

LOL a bunch of guys with waffling responses on about how they use cameras “old rangefinder style”. Use the technology at your disposal I shoot lots of film and if chimping was available I would.

Happy to stick with my film Leicas for black and white photography. I don’t crop nor am I endeared to shooting 28mm

Apple ProRAW has a bit of potential to wipe out a lot of 3rd party apps especially being integrated with the camera

ecovilks: sterile black and white images Whoever has taken theses images lacks knowledge in the dynamics of B&W photography.

I have played around with the Leica monochromes and cameras are great better than their other offerings
