  1. Thanks to everyone for their inputs. First step I will get prints from my film rolls, once I am comfortable with the results, will process B&W films on my own. Thens scanning the negatives using a DSLR camera. Finally finally, darkroom wet printing is my goal.
  2. Due to lockdown and other personal reasons, I have not been motivated to go out and take pictures, my "creativity" is down and I find my photos to be boring. I have a M10-D as my main camera, the reason I bought this was to force myself to shoot less and to slow down the process, like analogue shooting. Today I came across one of Erwin Puts old blog, back in 2015, in which he reviewed the Leica SL camera. Here is direct quote from his blog: "It has been remarked that the current state-of-the-art of digital photography makes it very easy to take high-quality pictures easily without
  3. I had contacted Berlin store for the shipping company name, in turn will contact their Canadian office for more details, thanks all for your inputs.
  4. @Knipsknecht, I believe US charges you the local tax, unlike in Germany I don't pay for VAT. US members of this forum can chip in with comments if I am wrong.
  5. Thanks Al Brown. 28framelines, I will think about it, in Vancouver, leica dealers don't carry it on their site, Toronto dealers they do but you have to wait and costs are higher (they have to make a living). Thanks.
  6. @jaapv, that is what I thought, thanks for sharing. Next decision is "to be silver or not to be silver", that is the question I have to make. Already have a m10-d, so I know what is like to have black chrome. I had a m8 silver chrome long time ago, wasn't impress with it. Search my soul........ for the answer 😔
  7. Leica Berlin had confirmed to me they only charge the product (without VAT) and the shipping cost, the duty/taxes are handled by me. Is that mean the shipping company will email me to pay for the duty/taxes way before the shipment arrives OR pay upon receive the camera?
  8. Hi everyone, I have decided to buy a film camera to supplement my M10-D, going for a M-A instead of MP, further to challenge myself on the photographic journey. Having said that, in Canada, the dealers are not well stock for film cameras, which I totally understand the business model, since in the past I have bought lenses from Leica Berlin store, I visited their web site and found that they have both silver and black in stock, and I am thinking to proceed with the checkout I want to ask members in this forum in particularly Canadian members, when it comes to paying duty and ta
  9. I have a M10-D, whenever viewing photos in the Fotos app in my IPhone, how come only b&w image showing, even though I select DNG only. Am I missing something ?
  10. M10-D with 50 APO. Taken in Toronto Harbour front.
  11. Testing the APO 50mm F2 lens on the new m10-D.
  12. Hi Irakly, Good work, in essence the article brings out the concept of this camera, this is an extremely niche gear, however, for those who appreciated its beauty, it is like drinking spring water in a land of pepsi/cola. I supported Leica on this endeavor a day after Boxing day, enjoyed very much. Last night took it to a friend's party to take some pictures, everyone commented positively, of course, the usual suspect is, "where is the LCD screen"? A 50mm lens will be glued onto my unit and I will travel the world with it in the coming 3 years on a personal project.
  13. My local Leica boutique in California was able to get one for a customer in 1 day. Hi JAC, when? Last few days or the end of October? I am trying to gauge the next shipment date for North America.
  14. I kind of understand what you mean by the store doesn’t understand the m10-d, not many people do, it is extremely niche product, “different horse for different course “
  15. Thanks i-Leica for the link. Also agree with ikarusJohn about supporting my local shop, if the wait is like 3 months, then I will order from other country's store. This morning checked B&H and they too are on back order, so I guess NA is in the same situation. James
  16. My order was placed on Nov 1 in Toronto, Canada. The dealer initially said within 2 weeks, later end of Nov, now end of Dec........😪 Is anyone the same as me in Canada?
