  1. Thank you to everyone who took part in last month's 128th Barnack's Monthly theme, which was filled with nearly 700 pictures, excellent ideas and interpretations of the theme. Also, thank you to everyone who helped to make it another successful month by generously posting their pictures and in particular to those people who posted for the first time - I hope you found it an interesting and rewarding experience and I hope it encourages you to share more of your pictures with us! The Barnack's Monthly theme for June 2019 is: Water. This month's theme is any pictures containing water in any of its forms such as steam, snow, rain, hail, fog, mist, ice, or Perrier - OR containing the word "water". It could be a relaxing lakeside scene, a raging seascape, a waterspout, a swimming race, yachting, a torrential downpour, a ski slope, water droplets on a car windscreen, ice inside a freezer compartment, the local Water Authority headquarters, umbrellas in the rain, a cold miserable saturated child, a puddle, a steaming cup of coffee on a cold day, mist rising from a frozen lake, a foggy landscape, a child dumping a bucket of water on their sunbathing dad, ice in a glass of whisky, water-buffalo in paddy fields, a cat lapping water from a bowl, the (niffy) Liffey River in Dublin, a mountain brook, a polar ice cap, a glacier, an ice cube in the shape of an ice cube, a cloud inversion layer, figure skating, a toboggan run, condensation trickling down a window pane, a popsicle, a slick street on a rainy night, snow drifts, a fountain, canoeing, a water bomb, a snowball, icicles hanging from the eaves, a frozen lake, an ice sculpture, raindrops on roses, wet whiskers on kittens, but no cofeves please! 😇 - it's entirely your choice so let your imagination run free but please keep to the topic! It would be a help if you give your picture a title so to help us understand your point of view. Members have asked if we'd very kindly name the camera and lens used - if you can remember - because it's interesting to know but, again, it's just helpful. The rules are deliberately loose so go out and shoot with this month's theme in mind or start searching back through those pictures you took oh-so long ago that you'd forgotten about and start posting! It doesn't have to be your best ever shot and it's not a competition so you might surprise the rest of us and yourself - it's just about sharing some pictures, seeing others' take on the topic, and enjoying it! Everybody's welcome to contribute, any interpretation, any number of posts, pictures that have been posted on the forum before, any equipment as long as it and the photo complies with the forum's rules of either camera or lens or both made by Leica. Please post freely - especially newcomers and please remember there's no judging or criticism (good or bad) in this thread. So, if you'd like to show your acknowledgement or appreciation that someone has posted their picture then instead of posting a comment please use the "Thanks" button that you can find at the bottom right of every post. Please post away and I look forward to seeing your interesting interpretations of this month's theme. Note: Moderator Pop has very kindly assembled links to all of the past Barnack's Monthly threads as a single archive that can be found here: Barnack's Monthly Index. Thank you, Pop! Pete.

  5. [ I did not find a pertinent thread via forum search; if this is a duplicate question, please be so kind to provide a link, otherwise feel free to answer ] What adapters can be reliably used on the M10 for e.g. a classic LTM Elmar 50 mm in your experience? In older threads (pre M10), the three most widely recommended were - Original Leitz (50mm seems to be a bit scarce on the market) - Voigtländer - CameraQuest/ Rayqual (seem unavailable in Europe) The M10 has been reported to be more finicky with regard to 6 bit coding. Is it also more of a diva with regard to adapters? I have read the caveats about collapsing; now I am looking out for an adapter... Thanks, Mathias
  6. This will be old hat for you, but I can still get carried away by the mechanical wonder of the original curtain shutter and the incremental improvement it underwent. Please be lenient towards a relative newcomer to LTM innards iPhone slow motion of IIIa timing mechanism: http://www.galerie-elsner.de/video/IIIa.MOV [ The video file is 8 MB, so those on a mobile or on a slow internet connection might refrain from clicking the link ] This is from the original German patent published in 1926 (declared valid as of 1924):

  14. Thank you to everyone who took part in April's Barnack's Monthly theme, which was filled with a wonderful array of more than 300 pictures and excellent ideas and interpretations of the theme! Thank you to everyone who helped to make it another successful month by generously posting their pictures and in particular to those people who posted for the first time - I hope you found it an interesting and rewarding experience and I hope it encourages you to share more of your pictures with us! The Barnack's Monthly theme for May 2017 is: "Darkness" This month's theme is "Darkness", which could be at night or in low light or a subject in the shadows where the light fears to tread. We did a similar theme four years ago and it was very popular so here's an opportunity to dust off and post those shots again or find others that you've taken in the meantime - it might even be an opportunity to re-work pictures you've taken before with all the knowledge you've gained since. "Darkness" could be a star-lit night, dusk by the Danube, a fox in the shadows behind the bins, a bear having a feast behind a dumpster, late-night party-goers straggling home, a church in the moonlight, twilight over Tuscany, dawn over Duckberg, midnight in Marseilles, the gloaming in Glasgow, nightfall in Nigeria, the gloom in Gdańsk, first light in Firenze, daybreak in Detroit, cockcrow in Córdoba, dim light in Dunedin, darkness in Dargaville, blackness in Baghdad, murkiness in Mumbai, shade in Shaolin, sunrise in Sun City, shadows in Shadowlands, aurora in Argentina, evening in El Paso, midday in winter in Reykjavik, a midnight gathering on park benches, crowds leaving the theatre, a street scene in the small hours, a darkroom, the inside of a cupboard, a car in a poorly-lit garage, a Duesenberg in night time - it's entirely your choice so let your imagination run free! It would be a help if you give your picture a title so to help us understand your point of view but it's not compulsory. Members have asked if we'd very kindly name the camera and lens used - if you can remember - because it's interesting to know but, again, it's not compulsory just helpful. The rules are deliberately loose so go out and shoot with this month's theme in mind or start searching back through those pictures you took oh-so long ago that you'd forgotten about and start posting! It doesn't have to be your best ever shot and it's not a competition so you might surprise the rest of us and yourself - it's just about sharing some pictures, seeing others' take on the topic, and enjoying it! Everybody's welcome to contribute, any interpretation, any number of posts, pictures that have been posted on the forum before, any equipment as long as it and the photo complies with the forum's rules of either camera or lens or both made by Leica. Please post freely - especially newcomers and please remember there's no judging or criticism (good or bad) in this thread. So, if you'd like to show your acknowledgement or appreciation that someone has posted their picture then instead of posting a comment please use the "Thanks" button that you can find at the bottom right of every post. Please post away and I look forward to seeing your interesting interpretations of this month's theme.

  15. Hey guys! Currently new to the whole Leica barnack scene and was wondering if you could give me helpful tips that could aid in my journey. I recently inherited a Leica III + Elmart 50mm 1:3.5 and have started using it. I do have a general understanding but was hoping you guys could provide some valuable insight as to the best way to use this gem. Thank you!
  16. Thank you to everyone who took part in March's Barnack's Monthly theme, which was filled with a wonderful array of more than 800 pictures and excellent ideas and interpretations of the theme! Thank you to everyone who helped to make it another successful month by generously posting their pictures and in particular to those people who posted for the first time - I hope you found it an interesting and rewarding experience and I hope it encourages you to share more of your pictures with us! The Barnack's Monthly theme for April 2017 is: "Worn" This month's theme is "Worn", so your pictures should include something that's worn as in 'wearing out' and not new, or something that's worn as in clothing or headwear etc, or something containing the consecutive letters "worn". This could be a worn tyre, a bandana, worn-out curtains, a wearing fan-belt, a wall that needs painting, a cricket bat with tape holding it together, shiny new Gucci shoes worn by a model, a matching Gucci handbag, tribal dress, lederhosen, an old, mangy-looking guard dog at a wrecking yard, an ageing camera, worn workman's tools, a classic car, a former Maltese bus, a saddle worn for a gymkhana event, the old worn face of a grandmother, the worn hands of a seamstress, garlic worn to ward off vampires, a brooch, military medals, an old Singer sewing machine, a chopping block with the scars of age, a warrior bearing the scars of battle, black lacquer that's worn away to reveal shiny brass beneath, mittens worn to keep the hands warm, the worn rocks on a shoreline - it's entirely your choice so let your imagination run free! It would be a help if you give your picture a title so to help us understand your point of view but it's not compulsory.

  18. In my (limited) experience, we photographers are our worst editors. When selecting our entries for competitions, challenges, etc., so often our 'best' pics get edited out. Here is a chance to show your current edits from the currently 'being judged' Barnack Challenge, theme of Tones, Tones, Tones. Following are two of my edits.
  19. As the winner of the last round (Autoportrait / Selbstportrait) it is my great pleasure to set the theme for the next Barnack Challenge. So for the Barnack Challenge #31 I have chosen the theme "Tones, Tones, Tones!" The dates are: Taking pictures: Saturday 4th February to Sunday 19th February Posting pictures: Monday 20th February to Sunday 5th March Voting: Monday 6th March to Sunday 19th March Good luck! Regards, Pete. As a reminder here the rules: The Barnack Challenge runs four times a year. It is open to all Leica User Forum members. In order to participate you must shoot a roll of film in line with a predefined theme within a defined period using a Screwmount or early fixed-lens Leica camera. You may use any lens, regardless of age or manufacturer, as long as it is LTM. Select your shot that in your view best matches the theme and post it onto a single thread set up for the purpose by the organiser in the Barnack Challenge Sub Forum. Post-processing of your image should be kept to a minimum - nothing that couldn't be done in a wet darkroom fifty years ago. You may post your image any size within forum rules. The thread will be open for postings but NOT for voting to allow all entries to be posted before voting starts. Your entries are not anonymous; feel free to post camera, lens and film details. Voting will then be opened. Votes may then be cast on the following basis: Three points for best, two points for second and one point for third. Voting runs for two weeks. One vote per member, no voting for your own image. The winner gets the right to set the theme for the next Barnack Challenge. ------ Als der Gewinner der letzten Barnack Challenge, (Autoportrait / Selbstportrait) moechte ich hiermit das Thema fuer die naechste Challenge bekanntgeben: "Tones, Tones, Tones!"
