    Luxury Camera Bags by Thorsten von Overgaard

    I saw the video on you tube and he says that someone approached him to design them. Really?. They look kind of weird to me and not too functional. This guys seems to reek of wealth. Must be nice Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

    B & W conversation

    I am reading an interesting article this morning by Ming Thein about black and white conversation, and I quote as follows: " I've gotten a lot of emails after the leica x2 and monochrom reviews asking about B&W conversion and processing. It doesn't make color cameras redundant though. Certain camera have certain black and white characteristics. True but only if you use JPEG." He goes on to say that in Raw he can basically get the same results and does it consistently with different cameras. Interesting concept. Any comments? Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

    28 mm lens suggestions

    I see a color skopar 25mm f4 p lens at b&h used for 349.95. They rate it a 9 out of 10. Do you generally just use the 28mm frame lines? Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

    Selling Leica gear

    What are you selling? Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk
  11. I am new to this group. I love my leica M2 but have not been able to get a sharp photo out of it with any lens. I was thinking I needed a diopter or new glasses but I contacted Leica and they said the rangefinder may need adjustment. So I am sending it in for CLA and hope for the best. The camera was made in 1963 still looks almost like new but I guess at 55 years old some work should be done..lol Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

    28 mm lens suggestions

    I normally don't shoot with a 28mm on my film leicas but now with my new M8 if feel like it is needed with the 1.3 sensor adjustment. I have spent some good money on my other lenses but don't feel like spending another bundle on a 28mm but want good results. Does anyone have any suggestions on what works well on the M8?

    Thanks for the tip. I always here whatever you do don't jpeg you lose a lot from not shooting raw. But I bought this for B&W so what the he'll right? I usually don't print past 11x14 any way. Spring is here time to hit the streets Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

    Thank you great idea. Just do a side by side comparison. Just a personal preference in the end. Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk
