  • What utter rubbish. Everything wears out, and the M7 is by far the most usable film M ever made thanks to its accurate metering and shutter plus the AE mode.

  • I get about 100 films per battery change from my M7. If you are used to changing film every 36 frames then carrying a couple of button cells is hardly onerous. The M7 is my most used camera, and...

  • Created discussion thread Architecture with the M10
    A few shots taken in Frankfurt with the M10 and 90mm Elmarit-M. The lens is a bit prone to veiling flair, but surprisingly the combination works quite nicely for architectural subjects. These were ...
  • I have no idea whether or not there will be a new Ricoh announced at Photokina, but at least there will be a significant Ricoh presence at the show - hall 02.2, stand A040. The stand is not as ...
  • I spent several days in Palermo with an EM5 and 12/25/45 prime lens kit. 90% of the images were made with the 25mm, and most of the rest the 12mm. I hate changing lenses, so usually stick with one ...
  • With the digital camera there is almost nothing to worry about. Just set it up for auto-shutter speed and pick a sensible ISO and go explore. You have a great selection of lenses! All except for ...
  • It is far safer to shoot into the sun with an EVF than any optical finder. If anything, optical finders should be subject to safety warnings...

  • Here are some more, again with the M7 and 28mm Summicron on Delta 400: There are more on my blog, although with some commentary which is not appropriate here. The situation here in Barcelona is ...
  • No - this self censorship for the time being. There are (were) government threats to prosecute everyone at the protest, and so I would rather not post anything with minors until this is cleared ...
  • Created discussion thread Catalan Independence Protests
    Some images from the independence protests in Barcelona over the last week. Shot with the M7 and 28mm Summicron ASPH II on Delta 400: Fortunately, the protests are (so far) peaceful - I had to ...
  • I think that we are going to disagree strongly here. The issue is the use of a digital sensor and trying to get an optimal exposure. With a wide-angle lens - particularly one with a lot of ...
  • I would be very interested to hear how they compare - here the M10 is essentially unobtainable, unfortunately.
  • The M-D is a really nice idea, but I think Leica needs to improve the metering before I would be comfortable using a screen-less camera. The main issue with the M 262’s meter is the very rapid fall ...
