  • Photokit Sharpener works fine on Catalina. you just have to turn off the warning ***??@@!!! setup that Apple has put upon us. It is called Gatekeeper. I did this using a Terminal command, as shown ...
  • Very, very nice photo! I also have this lens and an M10. This inspires me!
  • You could also get the M9 and be 99% there. Just convert to BW, preferably with Silver Efex. Be sure to get one with the replaced sensor and corresponding documentation. Voigtlander and Zeiss make ...
  • I would be interested in a breakout of Leica's core M body and lens business - the elements that earned them their market and technology position. While many would decry these as dated technology,...

  • Most reviews of digital cameras today get hung up with ISO, dynamic range, and resolution (as based upon pixel count.) Other important factors like color fidelity, tonal representation, and acuity ...
  • I am late to the Leica digital scene, getting an M10 and then a pristine (updated sensor) M9 last year. Despite some deficiencies vis the M10, the M9 is my all time favorite camera - supplanting ...
  • I made the journey in digital photography on Nikons, up to the D5 last year. However, many years ago I ownwd a Leica M6, and, although I knew next to nothing about photography and rarely used it, ...
  • I have officially given up on PM and returned to Bridge, which always does the job for me...
  • I still don't know why the pixelation of Leica M9 files was not an issue with PM 5 but is with PM 6. I sent Kirk an M9 .dng  file to play with. Note that he states that viewing will not be better ...
  • You should also know that there is a limit with the M9 and MM1on the size and speed of the SD cards. As I recall, the max is 32 GB San Disk Extreme Pro. That is what I use. David www.copperpennycou ...
  • Replied in Very fast but
    Raw files for Leica M9 are pixelated in the preview. (Mac OS 10.14) This worked find on version 5, and with all of my many other photo browsers/raw processors. I posted on their user forum and, ...
  • I agree that Lightroom does some really nice things as a browser/DAM. However, both Lightroom and Bridge will, at some time or another, consume most of the resources on my fully loaded, latest ...
  • I have never cared for Lightroom/Bridge and have been in a long search mode for an image viewer/dam that has a combination of capabilities and minimum impact on my Mac system. I have owned ...

  • This has always been a gear forum. There are better forums for Leica images, which display photographs for more enjoyable viewing. I will list some here, and hope not to be edited out: (1) Fred Miranda
  • I had settled on Focus Magic as my preferred final sharpening tool. It seems to have the least impact on tone and color of all the sharpening tools I own - and I own most of them. I really don't ...
  • - nor would I want it to. I have had large pixel Nikons (D800, D810, D850) and, even with some very good glass (G primes, Zeiss) the benefits are not worth the cost. To me at least. Very difficult ...
  • Yes they use actions. In essence, the app its a panel that has buttons for its actions - but the actions are "hidden" and each app has some unique and efficient ways of presenting the buttons...
  • Actually, Lumenzia and ADP Pro are easy to learn and come with many videos of instruction. There are free demos. These are established, proven apps with enormous capabilities - or you can just be ...
  • Actually, Photoshop is a platform for several excellent third party luminosity masking  extensions, such as ADP Pro, Lumenzia, and TK RapidMask. These extensions are relatively inexpensive and do ...
