JakeB: There's just a certain 'something' about those shots. An aura. A 'feeling.'

It would be ridiculous to suggest that any other manufacturer's camera/lens combinations costing a tenth of the price could create this 'look.'

It's almost like Leica sprinkled a little, well, let's call it 'pixie dust' into their cameras and lenses and that magic travels along the lens to the sensor and is captured along with the rays of light.

Or perhaps the sensor itself contains this pixie dust and thus imbues the image with the 'aura.'

No matter how it works, one can immediately spot this 'Leica look' that no other camera is capable of creating. It positively glows from each image.

Money well spent, I'd say.

I see what you mean and no matter what other guys comment the Leica images have this touch. I think that only few people can see it and to my opinion any good glass can produce fine images in our days. Worse than that is the fact that a touch only in post processing can add this look to practically any printed image from practically any cam, not to mention that all major brands's flagships they have their aura in capturing an image at least of equal character. Leicas are adorable, but purpose wise aim to a special audience that can afford it just for the shake of the "dot"...

aris14: Νon Adobe RGB color space..? I am really trying to figure out why Leica has omitted it...

@lancet , this is known to everyone has some elementary relation with photography. What I am trying to figure out is the concept of Leica marketing staff for this "extravaganza", i.e do they know something we don't..? Having to do with the potential buyers, that is...

T3: People who are complaining about the price of this camera really out to get a life. Buying a Leica is like buying most luxury items: it's not really about the dollars-and-cents practical value or bang-for-your-buck. There are plenty of women in the world walking around with $5000+ handbags. Hermes Birkin bags go for anywhere from $10K to $80K, depending on what material it's made of-- and that's for a handbag! There are people in the world who are spend $10,000+ for a single first-class plane ticket as we speak! Go to a place like United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Luxembourg, Hong Kong, Brunei, etc, and you'll see plenty of very wealthy people who would think nothing of spending $10-20K on Leica gear. There are plenty of very rich people in the world. This is not a camera for your average Walmart shopper.

You did it as worse as you could... I think that people who really like to shot with a Leica will issue something like "Wanted for he knows why" with a reward of a full kit of the new cam...

On article Canon granted third most US patents in 2016 (142 comments in total)

Cudos to Canon for its R&D dpt, no matter if only a few of its works aiming to broad audience. In periods like this where the R&D expenses are declining, the fact that a manufacturer keeps a strong R&D dpt, is good news.
Mind you that I am not a Canon fan.

On article DJI reportedly takes majority stake in Hasselblad (191 comments in total)

Since the global investment in R&D in practically every sector is going down, the companies they produce have to buy the companies they made up their reputation upon R&D and quality manufacturing, so to produce highly esteemed goods. And in rather good price, I guess.

Nick Brundle - Photography: Why is it that certain members always feel the need to critise other people's work but never have anything to show themseves? So what if it is photoshopped. Photography is all about being creative. Enjoy the pictures like most of us do.

The greatest of all photography myths is that well known photographs of masters of photography are practically unretouched. No they are not from the era that photography made its very first steps...

Readers pics are more spontaneous, they have a documentary character and they present clearly the interesting of readers on their task/subject.
Most of them have the ability if asked to work/function as pros.
In some cases their quality of work is excellent, in some the composition is somehow weak mainly because they do care for the subject.
And they can take the most of their gear no matter the circumstances are...

CameraLabTester: HA HA HA HA HA *gUFFAW*--- cough, cough...

Since when did Bridled Magazine become a camera gear aficionado?

I suggest they better just concentrate on their CMYK settings and check the inks with their printers because the Cyan dyes looked washed out on their covers, after 48 hours exposure to sunlight, in a magazine stand.


Probably their staff don' t include a production manager so to be ensured that the press house printing the mag uses UV resistant inks. Chip thrills for chip results.
