Lobbamobba: I love to read comments from jealous camera dudes underneath Leica articles. This was no exception.

Why use a camera that can sort of do the same thing but without the features you prefer and enjoy when you can have both?

It's also alone in the market, which means there's nothing to compare the price to. Same goes for the M.

If any of the competitors made anything similar to what Leica makes there might have been a point in there. But they don't. And thats just come facts from a spec sheet. We haven't even started to factor in actually using the gear.

Aint nobody shooting no 1000 role/year. Can you back up "tiny bit" because I don't believe it for a second? Just the gasoline, food, shelter, clothes and living expenses for one factory worker alone counts for way more than the average film shooter would pollute in a life time.

techjedi: The barrier to film for me is the cost of development. Film can be pretty affordable, but I don't have the space to do my own development. Most nearby services no longer return negatives and the online services seem to top $15 per roll to get negatives and scans back. So my X-700 decorates my bookshelf next to 40 rolls of 35mm film i bought for a song and realized I would probably never use.

Nah.

Came to chuckle at comments from non photographers that didn't read the article and just hang out here to argue. Was not disappointed.

tkbslc: If you want the film experience, just get a Fuji camera and a prime lens (or an X100). Set it for JPEG and pick your favorite film simulation. Buy the cheapest SD cards you can find and partition each to only have about 300MB of space. For bonus points, only change ISO when you swap cards.

Not like like film at all.

Foskito: Yeah right.

Last year during a 5-minute nostalgia episode I bought a minty Contax 139. I rush to the only store in town still have over-priced film, bought 4 rolls and haven't been in the mood to go back to process them. In fact, I might lost them already. The camera is eating dust as expected.

I bought a pencil I haven't used. Therefore the written word is dead and everybody that read and write are wrong.

You only need a zink. That's not a lot of space.

I would love to see numbers comparing the avarage users impact on pollution with their chemicals and a metal camera without a battery made 30 years ago vs a new digital camera with plastics, made in a new large scale factory employing hundreds in need of food and transportation. Not to mention distribution, packaging, marketing etc.

I think you need to burn through a lot of chemicals before you reach the same level.

Lobbamobba: Say what you want about Canon but that they haven't released interesting things in the past is not very true imo.

First 4K stills camera, first 4K/60p stills camera, first usable mirrorless/liveview AF for stills and video, first usable LOG in a stills camera. In their first mirrorless FF they had the biggest lens line up with native support in history on day one. With the added option of built in filters or extra controls.

(Not to mention basics like top displays etc, which to this day some of the competition haven't been able to produce..)

That is your opinion. For many it was pretty game changing with LOG, 4K, 4K/60p, Mirrorless with working auto focus, biggest lens line in the world, built in filters etc. Yours and my milage may vary.

In reply to:

Horshack: "The auto-ISO behavior was changed to prioritize correct exposure."

Hmm, I wonder what the previous priority was. Perhaps to maintain a minimum shutter speed even in very low light, which would result in an underexposed image when the ISO limit was reached.

Shame if its not an option. I want to set the parameters for the auto ISO and if its under exposed, so be it. I want control.

Mariano Pacifico: Leica is trying to be like a Japanese camera .... They should stick to limited edition with limited firmware.

Leica did added functions via firmware before the Japanese brands. When Fuji started doing it many of us thought, "cool, they are doing a Leica".

landscaper1: I'm perplexed how Image #12 qualifies as "photojournalism" inasmuch as the photographer admits this was a "staged photo." Sounds more like performance art to me.

So Wallraff is lack of discipline. Ok. If you believe that you could have reached the same results with traditional methods then why don't you make a report about it? You would revolutionize the industry and probably get some sort of honorary doctors degree. Sounds like fun to me and you would be helping thousands if not millions of people.

But it doesn't matter, if you decide the reality for yourself and deny the common base which others stand on in order to suit your own narrative the entire discussion you started is 100% pointless. Why invite to a game if you plan to change the rules when ever someone else has a turn.
What can I say.. nothing.. but not because you where convincing.
Out.

Good luck.

There are different genres of journalism. The non-participating is the most common practice as opposed to for example Gonzo or Wallraff. But they all exist and are a form of journalism.

thenoilif: Photographer complains that he didn't get paid but has no problem taking advantage of the situation to maximize his exposure. Got to love hypocrisy.

No I don't value it, I just responded to be helpful.
But if you honestly think that anybody care if some random dude on the internet says he doesn't believe if they know something or not.. then I don't know how to help you.

And the value I put on that opinion is 0. But thanks for letting me know.
