  • Excellent suggestions. When on the street I tend to shoot at eye level mostly. Need to try different POVs to vary compositions and also based on the light. Thank you!
  • This man did not want me to send him a copy. I usually get phone numbers of people I shoot and send them copies via WhatsApp, and they love it.
  • My Covid test turned out negative, so I have luckily (and perhaps undeservedly) escaped this wicked disease. But lesson learned - until the vaccine is out I am not heading out into crowds again. Do ...
  • Like has been pointed out, I was fine heading out with two masks and hand sanitizer. But getting carried away and diving headlong into the crush of shoppers was probably not my smartest idea. :) ...
  • Beautiful images! Especially love the telegraph poles...beautifully composed.
  • Created discussion thread The Q as a versatile “streetie”
    Hi all, On the evening of Christmas Day I managed to shed my inhibitions, fears, and possibly common sense (more on this in a bit) long enough to head to Shivaji Nagar in Bangalore, India for some ...
  • Very interested in this topic...looking forward to responses for having as low a profile as possible when traveling with expensive gear.
  • Totally agree with Tom's and Jon's observations. I recently bought my first M (M240) and the experience of shooting with this camera is more immersive and satisfying than with any other camera I ...
  • I have a Q which is my go-to camera for street photography. I find it to be a good fit for my application. The EVF is excellent, the AF snappy, and zone focusing a breeze when using that feature. ...
  • Here is an example of the M240 at ISO 3200. Some processing done in LR, but no noise reduction applied.
  • With the X-Pro2 and Fuji lenses I mostly used AF. I did use zone focusing on occasion, but that was probably 5% of the times. The times I used MF on the X-Pro2 was with older glass like the Helios ...
  • Having recently taken the plunge into the Leica world, let me offer a perspective as well. After many years of shooting Nikon, I shifted to Fuji in 2007 and loved it. IAt one time I had several ...
  • The D-Lux 7 saves its RAW's as .RWL files, unlike the Leica Q and the M240 which create .DNG files. I don't know what the difference between these two formats is. I see a Menu option called 'RAW ...
  • I love the feel of the camera. The fact that aperture, shutter speed, exposure compensation and even form factor are available as dials/switches is a huge plus for me and my style of shooting. The ...
  • I have the D-Lux7. My primary reason for buying it is as my primary "walkabout" camera during my Himalayan treks. For this application I wanted a camera that I could carry all day in challenging ...
  • Agree with the challenge in focusing this lens. I have the Voigt 58mm f/1.4 Nokton which is a real winner too! I love that lens on my M240, and will be trying it out on my Fuji X-T3 after my ...
  • I have yet to try the 75mm Voigt with my Fuji X-T3 with an adapter, and based on your response I will give it a shot soon. Thanks.
  • Created discussion thread Voigtlander 75mm f/1.5 Nokton on M240
    I recently acquired a Voigtlander 75mm f/1.5 Nokton lens for my M240. The lens is a real beauty, very well engineered and having great handling. However, it is clear that my manual focusing skills ...
  • Wonderful image! Good to see that you are back on track doing what makes you happy. :) Take care.
  • Portrait of my older girl. Leica M240, Voigtlander 58mm f1.4 Nokton. Portrait on a Friday evening...
