  1. Hi, I have Hasselblad V series lenses and also a M240. I was thinking of buying 'Kipon Baveyes Ultra 0.7x Adapter for Hasselblad Medium Format Lens to Leica M Mount' so that I can use these lenses. Has anyone used this adapter, and what was the experiance? N.Shah
  2. Dear All I wonder if anyone can give me some advice or help. We were burgled last week from north west London and all of my precious cameras have been taken. I don't have the reference numbers for the whole stash, but what was taken included an M2, son-1085967 with a 40mm/ f2 Summicron lens in a brown leather case an M8 body, fabrication number 3196666, VK number 10702 an M9 body body number 0384,with 35mm/ 2.8 summaron lens , son-2081257 There was also a 50mm/ f2 Summicron and a 90mm / f28 Elmarit as well as a Hasselblad 500C/M with an f/2.8 80mm and a f/3.5 100mm lens and my old Nikon FM2 with a 24 mm, a 35mm, a 50mm and an 80mm lens and a Canon 5D mk 2 body a Polaroid SX-70 an old battered Mamiya 645 in a metal case I'm devastated, not least by the M2/ 35mm which was the first Leica I bought, and which after a particularly terrible time working in DRC was the only thing that was evacuated with me. I wonder if anyone has been through the same devastating experience and can offer any advice? The police have done forensics/opened a case but is that all I can do? I’d be hugely thankful for any help/ lead in this All best Miriam
  3. I have an XPAN II with the 45mm lens; when it needs to be repaired or have a CLA, where would I send it? As far as I know, Hasselblad doesn't work on the XPAN these days. Can anyone point me in the right direction? There was a post a while back about this so I spent a lot of time this evening using the search function for XPAN repair but came up empty handed. Thanks in advance for your help, gents and ladies.

  5. I've been into photography from August 2008: relatively speaking, I am an FNG* (just look it up!) I would be interested to know peoples' history of camera models and what they were used for. Here's mine: Nikon D40 - perfect newbie camera with both auto and manual functioning, and in-camera editing. Nikon P100 - megazoom and nothing else to recommend it. Canon PowerShot SX110 IS - decent point and shoot. Canon PowerShot SX30 IS - huge zoom, lots of bells and whistles. Nikon Coolpix S9100 - point and shoot, pocket size, decent zoom. Minolta Dynax 5 - my first 35mm camera, very steep learning curve. Zenit ET - manual 35mm SLR, starting to learning old analogue skills. Casio EX-H15 - although low end by current standards, Casio seemed to produce some decent models at the time. Minolta Dynax 7 - an upgrade on the Dynax 5. Sony A500 - excellent dSLR with advanced features, compatible with Minolta lenses. Canon G9 - advanced compact, small sensor, yet surprising image quality. Fuji HS10 - excellent bridge camera which had a habit of freezing! Leica V-LUX - one of the best bridge cameras, thank God for LeicaSonic! Fuji X-E1 - much heralded compact system camera, used it for a while, but it's not that good once you start putting it through it's paces. Minolta Dynax 9 - incredibly advanced 35mm SLR, a joy to use. Sony A900 - a great dSLR, stunning film-like images. Leica M6 - a classic, end of story. Leica M9 - great model, had to send back as I couldn't get to grips with it! Voigtlander Bessa R2 - aside from build quality (still better than most), just as good as any Leica 35mm RF. Leica M4 - the beginning of my darkroom obsession! Pentax 645n - a great introduction to medium format, still holding its well-deserved value. Hasselblad 500c - another all-time classic, ideal way to learn all the core skills. Nikon F - the original and, some would say, still the best! Over the years, all the cameras have been exchanged, sold used, or put on commission sale at varios dealers. I have learned how to spot a bargain, then sell it for a decent price or do a good trade-in. .....and my current line-up Leica X2 - stunning images, KISS-Keep It Simple Stupid! Leica X-Vario - stunning lens, simple to use (like me!) Nikon F2 - back to using 35mm after a break! For the record, I have certain problems of a psychiatric nature, including obsessive tendencies, as you can see! Thank you and have a nice day!
  6. I was editing some images that I took last week in New York city, including some taken from the observation deck of the Empire State Building. Then I remembered that I had taken some shots of the same view from the same location, 15 years ago. 2001: Hasselblad 205FCC 110mm (35mm equ 70mm) Planar lens, Fujichrome 100, 6x6cm tranny scanned in an Imacon Flextight scanner to 135Mb 2016: Leica SL, 24-90mm lens (at 68mm), 24 Megapixel sensor, ISO 100, DNG 42Mb Both shot on a clear morning. Both handheld. Both similar field of view (about 70mm) The Hasselblad body, lens and the Imacon scanner were arguably the best quality equipment ever produced for a portable film camera. And, of course, the 6x6cm trannies have a much larger surface area than a 35mm sensor. The Leica SL and 24-90 zoom is arguably current state-of-the-art for quality, portable, digital camera / lens. Of course, the SL is streets ahead of the old film 'blads in terms of convenience and percentage of usable images. But I was interested in seeing how things have progressed, IQ wise. So, I used LR's compare feature to find the same portion of the image at 100%. Then took a screenshot of the two side-by-side. The Leica image is on the left, the scanned Hasselblad image is on the right. After 15 years, we can see that the 35mm Leica has surpassed the scanned 6x6cm MF transparency in terms of resolution, colour and punch. (and the New Yorkers have painted some of their water tanks) And here is the Hasselblad scanned tranny from 2001: And the Leica SL image from 2016:
  7. I’m not one for spending a lot of time pixel peeping but, last Sunday, I noticed that, over the last couple of years, by coincidence, I had taken a photo of the same subject (a ruined temple with lots of fine details), at the same place, from roughly the same distance, at roughly the same time of day, with three cameras: Hasselblad H4D50 - prime lens 100mm (~60mm) (4.5x6cm sensor @ 50 Mpxl) Sony A7Rii - prime lens 55mm (35mm sensor @ 42 Mpxl) Leica SL - zoom lens at about 50mm (35mm sensor @ 24 Mpxl) Coincidentally, I had used roughly the same ISO, shutter speed and aperture all 3 times. So I started doing some comparisons in LR, zoomed in on the TIF files at 100%. Nothing scientific at all, just looking around the images: centre, corners, details, colours, sky, etc. From a pure resolution point of view, I could not see any difference, either in the centre or in the corners. This means that: there’s no penalty from the lesser number of pixels; that the Leica SL zoom performed as well as the two prime lenses, and; in the 3 years since the H4D-50 sensor was built, sensor technology has advanced such that a CMOS 35mm sensor is equivalent to the older 4.5x6cm CCD sensor. From a colour point of view, the SL was discernibly better - against the 'blad, not by much, but better. Much more realistic than the Sony colours. Other noticeable differences: skies are definitely better rendered by the SL sensor, better gradation, smoother, less colour grains. From a usability point of view, the SL is way ahead of the other two. The hit ratio of quality images (focus, exposure) has been much higher than the other two cameras. After 40 years of knowing that "zoom = quality loss", with this SL, I need have no more concerns about using a zoom. With an additional bonus from this weather-sealed camera: one lens on the camera all day long, never have to expose the sensor to dust. No more juggling lens swaps. But kudos to the Sony too for keeping up with the two more expensive systems. But, it suffers greatly in usability and a lot of the lenses, by comparison, are poor, especially the zooms. The Zeiss 55mm that I mentioned above stands out in the Sony range as an exceptional lens. In my experience, none of the Sony zoom lens come close to the image quality of the Leica SL 24-90mm. And I wouldn't have the strength to lug around the Hasselblad zoom... Regards Peter
  8. Watching these conversations about the Leica SL have been instructive and entertaining. How a product launch can release so much passion is beyond me. It's a product. It might succeed. It might fail. The company made its bet and now will see how it fairs in the market. Being a brand new product, the company owes no allegiance to existing customers of any of their other product ranges. So there's no need for the passion. You either like it or you don't. A lot of the discussions seem to revolve around one Question: who are the target customers for this new range? Answer: Me. And, hopefully, a few others... Why me? Foremost, I have always enjoyed quality. It inspires me. Outside of family and work, I only have two passions: photography and scuba diving (and the combination of the two). I've worked hard all my life and achieved some level of success. So, spending some money on quality products to support my passion does not seem unreasonable. For the last 25 years, I have been a Hasselblad user, but, in that whole time, I have only ever used two of their cameras and five lenses. I believe in buying a system and using it for years so that I become familiar with its every nuance and can know how it'll respond in every circumstance. (I realise that in today's world that's not so easy anymore, as product cycles are significantly shorter). But, recently two things changed as I become older. I struggle to carry a huge backpack of camera gear. And my eyes do not focus as well as they used to, taking longer to determine if an image in the viewfinder is sharp or not. For a couple of years, I left the Hasselblad in the dehumidifier and I used the Leica M9 but never did get comfortable with RF focusing - nothing wrong with the system - just took me too long to find the focus. I recently tried the Sony A7Rii. I was very excited at first. Almost there! Light weight, AF, EVF, 42 Mp, almost as many as the 'blad. But the Sony zoom lenses do not match that sensor. Possibly some good prime lenses coming - if Zeiss ever sort out their production issues. But, the Sony cameras just feel wrong. Too much clutter. Too many useless functions (e.g. detect a smile then automatically take a photo). Scene modes, yuk! Buttons all over the place. Symbols that flashes at you in the viewfinder for no good reason. Seems like they are trying to be all things to all people. Yes, you can try to ignore the clutter but that does not appeal to my love of quality and simple design. The Sony A7Rii is not a bad camera and I have taken some great images with it - but it's not a camera you could ever fall in love with - it feels like the camera you own for a year or two until the Sony A7Riii comes along. Then, just as I was stocking-up on Sony lenses and accessories, I heard about the SL. Sounded like it fit most of my criteria. Quality, AF, Weight1, Size2, Lenses3,... 1Yes, you read it right, weight. For me, its weight is a positive. Anyone who has schlepped a backpack with a Hasselblad and 3 lenses around all day will see the SL weight as "reasonable", even with the initial SL lens on-board. 850 grams for a camera body is about right. 2kg for a whole camera system is fine. Solid enough to be stable. Light enough to carry all day. 2The size is right. The Hasselblad was big, really big. But, as it was well designed, I could walk for hours with it in my hand - although it did get a bit heavy with one of the larger lenses on. For me, the Sony A7Rii is too small. My little finger slips off the bottom. The SL is a comfortable size. 3And, what a lens, for 95% of my photographs, that one lens will fit the bill. One body, one lens, one extra battery - total of 2kg - lovely - and light (by comparison to my equipment of the last 25 years). Will I hanker for some primes, especially for portraits? Maybe. Time will tell. So, last week, I went into Leica Store Singapore and touched a Leica SL. That touch was the tipping point. The minute I had it in my hands, I knew that I had to have this camera. Not optional. Slapped down the card and got myself onto the pre-order list. Will this be my main camera for the next few years? I hope so. But, if not, I can always sell it and try something else. I am not all starry-eyed about the SL. But I am excited about the next few months of using this new Leica product to see if will become my new camera system for the next few years. I'll let you know how it works out. Final thought: My advice to anyone who wants to stay angry at Leica for not producing the camera that they wanted, is this: Do not touch one of these SLs. You'll be sorely tempted to ignore all the grumbling, forget about its affordability and slap down your plastic too. Regards Peter http://www.peterwalker.com Quote MultiQuote Edit
  9. Today is the 10th year birthday of the Leica DMR so I took my unit out and fondled it a bit. What has your DMR been up to on it's birthday? http://www.overgaard.dk/leica_digital_back_R-page-2.html
  10. Hello, I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the hasselblad 1.7x convert on the Leica S? I own the Hasselblad 300mm f4.5 and the Leica S Hasselblad adapter and when I connect the 1.7x converter it will not show the aperture for the 300mm lens and creates green lines in the picture. Just trying to find out if anyone else has any experience. thanks gage

  15. Hallo Allerseits Ich bin ziemlich neu hier im Forum, eure Beiträge haben mir jedoch schon bei so einigen Fragen weitergeholfen deshalb möchte ich euch allen meinen herzlichen Dank aussprechen! Seit dieser Woche bin ich Besitzer einer wunderbaren M9 – ich habe gerade den Umstieg von Hasselblad (Digital) auf Leica vollzogen da ich per Ende 2011 eine grössere Asienreise antrete (1 Jahr, ca. 10 Länder). Zuerst wollte ich die H1 auf die Reise mitnehmen jedoch musste ich diese Idee schnell verwerfen; das Gewicht selbst ist mal das Eine in erster Linie geht es mir aber darum, spontan fotografieren zu können und nicht zu sehr aufzufallen. Nach einem sehr intensiven Test-Weekend auf den Strassen von Zürich und Umgebung war ich sofort von der M9 überzogen. Jetzt versuche ich gerade an ein paar schöne (ältere) Leica-Objektive ranzukommen (35mm 1,4 ; 50mm 1,4 ; 90mm 2,8) und dazu noch ein schönes Crescendi-Case. Noch ein paar Akkus und viele Speicherkarten und es kann es los gehen! Nun habe ich jedoch noch ein paar Fragen, wäre schön wenn ihr eure Erfahrungen mit mir teilen würdet: Hat schon einmal jemand ein Crescendi- bzw. Echtleder-Case in tropischen Ländern benutzt? Meiner Erfahrung nach ist Leder nicht gerade perfekt geeignet – jedoch mit der richtigen Pflege…? Hat jemand aktuelle Erfahrungen im Bezug auf Dritthersteller-Akkus? Ich habe nur ältere Infos gesehen, mittlerweile gibt es ja einige Angebote im Netz. Kann man bei der M9 den Urheber-Vermerk effektiv nicht direkt einbinden (wie bei PhaseOne/Hasselblad/Canon)? Tja das wär’s eigentlich auch schon – ich danke euch im Voraus für eure Beiträge! Wünsche allen ein schönes verlängertes Wochenende! Merlin

  20. Just a little post to welcome myself to the Leica forum as I am about to become a brand new Leica owner - well, as soon as Leica deliver my M9, that is. I've been a photographer since the late 1970's. My photography is a combination of travel photography, portrait photography and underwater photography. Most of the last 20 years, I have been shooting medium format, most recently a Hasselblad 205FCC with the digital CFV-16 back. Some proud moments in my photography life include: - Center spread in Hasselblad's Focus magazine - Published 20 images on Singapore and Malaysian heritage sites in ASEAN photo book - Published in several travel and underwater magazines - Set up one of the very earliest web-based photo galleries in 1997, and still going... For travel photography, my technique involves getting up with the sun and wandering the streets of whichever city I happened to be in, mainly around Asia, looking for interesting, unusual or attractive things / people to photograph. I would often walk 5 to 10 kms between 6am and 10am. But I was getting weary of lugging around a big camera, heavy lenses and a big tripod, every time I wanted to photograph something. I figured that, one day, someone would make a smaller camera that could produce images of an acceptable quality to my Hasselblad. It appears to me that the M9 is that camera. Over the next few months, I am going to enjoy trying to prove that hypothesis. I'll keep the Hasselblad for "planned" portrait photography. As for underwater photography, do you think I will ever be brave enough to seal the M9 and a wide-angle lens in a housing and take it under the sea? Watch this space...
