  6. Its now nearly a year since I purchased the M246, and I was thinking to take a quick look back at how my experience has been with this camera. It was during a relative cold and dark period of the winter last year here in Norway that I was evaluating what I could do to enhance my photographic interests and capabilities. At the time I was using the Sony system, which to be fair I was very happy with. The sensors were impressive, and the lens setup had become very good, especially when taking into account all the amazing lenses from Leica and other producers that could be used with a simple adapter. Still, there was something intriguing about owning and using an M. I had always looked at Leica cameras as somewhat mystique. One the one hand I found them simple and elegant - which is stark contrast to Sony cameras. On the other hand I wondered why people would actually pay to not have features that I found so important for a modern camera. A simple thing like not having to do a black screen after a long exposure or the ability to move around the focus point in an electronic view finder was to me almost a must at the time. But I wanted to try a Leica - to find out what the fuzz was all about. I had a few choices of course. I could opt for an old M9, but knew that I would despise its low ISO capabilities. The M240 was nice, but I didn’t really see how it would change my photos from what I achieved with my Sony. So I opted for a special camera instead, a camera that only saw things in black and white and had its speciality in distinguishing between light and dark. As soon as I tried the camera I was in love. Never before had I pressed such a smooth shutter. The body was sturdy, with no plastics. Everything was manual, and apart from ISO i could always see the settings before pressing the shutter. The camera felt good to hold, and more importantly the rangefinder was a joy to use. I quickly learned that I was just as right-eyed as left-eyed, while I have always used my left eye for photography. And somewhat surprisingly, I seldom saw the need for an electronic viewfinder, and all other quirks, techs and specs from the Sony camera soon became obsolete. It didn’t take long before I discovered that the M246 was a very special camera, not only because it was only in black and white, but also because it thrived in whether conditions that most cameras despised. Not long after I purchased the M246 I travelled to Lofoten for a week with photography. Originally I hadn’t planned to use the Leica that much, but in the end 85 percent of the photos I took that week was with the M246. The key was the weather. Every day was stormy, and the weather conditions were the worst I have ever experienced. The wind was so strong that a tripod became unusable for large periods at the time, and snowstorm after snowstorm came in from the north, forcing me to run for shelter every 10 minutes. Pockets of sun were just that, pockets that lasted for minutes before they were overrun by a new snowstorm. It was in this weather I discovered why the M246 was so special. The camera loved bad weather. The darkness, the storms and the wind was captured in a beautiful way that no other camera could capture. That I only had black and white made the images more pure and raw, thereby amplifying the mood created from the lack of light. It is this that is special for the M Monochrom. It shines when light is scarce, whereas most cameras shine when light is abundant. This has opened up a whole new world of photographic perspectives for me. Since then I have never looked back. I now see shapes and light in a completely different way, and its all thanks to the M246. ISO capabilities are incredible, and it is fantastic to be able to take photos with ISO up to 10 000 without really sacrificing contrast or details. I truly believe that I have become a better photographer after acquiring it. At least I find it much more inspiring to plan new trips and projects. Are there things about the camera that bothers me? Of course. Like several others have mentioned on this forum, its easy to burn highlights with the M246. This has not been a major problem for me, because I just avoid overexposing in the way I have done with other digital cameras. Besides, the level of details in the shadows is very impressive, and its easy to adjust for under exposure in post-processing. I still miss being able to move around the focus point when using the EVF, but thats also only a minor issue as I most often use the rangefinder. Thanks for reading, and now some photos.
  7. Hallo! Ist da jemand unter Euch, der für Scannen von SW-Negativen den Canon CanoScan 9950F im erweiterten Modus benutzt? Ein Problem taucht immer wieder auf. Sofern Negative von mir korrekt belichtet und dann auch korrekt entwickelt worden sind, bewährt sich das Gerät hervorragend. Brauche ich aber eine Korrektur (Belichtung, Kontrast usw) durchzuführen, dann wirds schon hoffnungslos problematisch. Kurz und bündig: ich mach den Vorschau von allen 5 Negativstreifen. Im Vorschaufeld sehen die Miniaturen meistens gar nicht schlecht aus.(Bild 1) Würde ich sagen, wenn Helligkeit, Kontrast, usw. im Endeffekt dem entsprechen würde, was in der Vorschauphase zu sehen ist, hätte ich gegen das Gerät gar nix auszsusetzten. Aber nachdem ich das Vorschaubild gescannt habe, sieht das zu speicherne Bild dermaßen schrecklich aus, dass es keinen Sinn hat, es zu speichern. So versuche ich an der Belichtungskurve eigniges zu verbessern. Das Vorschaubild wirds dabei heller, einfach besser (Bild 2). Dann los mit dem Scannen, worauf es sich heraustellt, dass alle diese Einstellungen, die ich an der Kurve durchgeführt habe, gar nicht übernommen worden sind, bzw. das Bild sieht noch dunkler aus.(Bild 3) Als hätte ich an der Kurve gar nix hantiert. Und ja, jede Änderung an der Kurve bestätige ich natürlich mit der Taste "Bestätigt die entgültigen Ausgabe Einstellungen". Аber es hilft natürlich nicht. Habt ihr änhliche Erfahrungen?

  13. Hi all! I just released a small guide to the settings I use mainly for concerts. My goal were high contrast black&white pictures straight out of the camera. Enjoy: http://mennigmann.com/photo/2016/01/d-lux-old-school-bw-photography-settings-guide/ Comments appreciated! Best, Marc
  14. In spite of crouching at the sofa or gazing at the PC it is sometimes a better therapy to go out and try to catch a few frames in the darkness. I started late afternoon just before the heavy darkness to settle in. Leica Q
  15. The winter sun is known to be very low. Long shadows are being cast on the pathway. Leica Q
  16. Hallo Forum! Ich habe mal eine kleine Anleitung geschrieben, für die Settings, die ich bei meiner D-Lux am liebsten verwende. Intention war es, brauchbare schwarzweiß Fotos direkt aus der Kamera zu bekommen. Ich nutze diese Einstellungen gerne für alle Bereiche, hauptsächlich aber bei Konzerten oder Portraits. Enjoy - in English: http://mennigmann.com/photo/2016/01/d-lux-old-school-bw-photography-settings-guide/ Gruß, Marc
  17. I love taking random street photographs especially in black and white... Camera: Leica M-P (typ 240) Lens: Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH. Location: Wien
  18. This is part 2 of my bw series. Sometimes bw is "color" enough. The rich shade of monochrome tones is amnifold and exciting enough. Olympus EM 5 with Nocticron 43 mm
  19. See and press the shutter, that is how it goes. These two guys were enjoying the early october morning air: sunny and crisp, running through golden light. But I think one can feel this also in bw and more of being in harmony with nature. Olympus EM 5 with Nocticron 43 mm
  20. You can spend hours on a beach of that Westcoast California. It is full of surprises and strange life. Lots of seashells on the rocks, seaweeds etc. They all hope for a major tide and wave come in to provide them with a watershower. Starfish, cormorans,pelicans, seal, otter, all come into the inviting coves and small bays. X1
