  1. What a milestone for Leitz. Their RF system is still in use, Leica is currently the only camera maker in the world that makes rangefinder film cameras. Looking for photos, stories and anecdotes on the first rangefinder Leica II (D) that started its pioneer journey in 1932, ninety years ago to date - paste them here.
  2. Thank you to everyone who took part in last month's 167th Barnack's Monthly theme, which was filled with more than 2,300 pictures, excellent ideas and interpretations of the theme - which is a new record!. 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! Thank you all so much for contributing by very kindly sharing your photos because it's you who keep Barnack's Monthly going. Without your pictures there could be no Barnack's Monthly. The 168th Barnack's Monthly theme for September 2022 is: Arch. This month's theme is any picture that contains an arch or the word "arch" on its own or as part of another word. For example, it could be a larch (tree), a railway arch, arches supporting a road bridge, a Gothic arch, a Byzantine arch, the Archies ("Sugar Sugar") (that tune's in your head now isn't it?😄), parchment paper, a cathedral arch, a marching band, an arch supporting a roof, an arch in an engagement ring, the Arc de Triomph in Paris, Marble Arch in London, a gymnast with an arched back, an Architect, a Monarch, a Monarch butterfly, a round arch, a flat arch, a horseshoe arch, a keyhole arch, an Oriental arch, a trefoil arch, a Russian oligarch, an Archdeacon, an Archbishop, an Archduke, the archangel Gabriel, an archive, an archivist, archery, an archer, an architrave (the beam above a door), an arch-fiend (Moriarty perhaps?), an arch over a fireplace, the arch at The Oval cricket ground - it's entirely your choice so let your imagination run free! It would be a big 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 because it's interesting to know. 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 (but to avoid swamping the thread would you very kindly please post no more than ten pictures at a time), pictures that have been posted on the forum before, are fine any equipment as long as it 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.
  3. Moin! Ich habe vor ein paar Tage eine Leica 3 gekauft (1936) und bin relativ unerfahren damit. Ich habe meine bilder zum ersten mal jetzt entwickelt (nicht selber). Es gibt streifen die durchs bild gehen und ich weiß nicht, ob es normal ist, oder es ein "shutter" problem ist. Ich wäre sehr dankbar für ein Rat. Vielen dank 😃 Anbei sind ein paar beispiele.

  5. 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.

  12. Hi everyone, I’ve recently acquired a Leica III and I’ve been enjoying this camera so much that I have not touched my M3 at all for over a month now. I was wondering if there are any Barnack Leica users here who could recommend me their favorite lenses for the system. I currently own: - Nickel Elmar 5cm f3.5 (elmar, uncoated from 1933) - Chrome Elmar 5cm f3.5 Red scale (coated from 1954) I’m thinking of getting rid of one of the Elmars (still have to decide which one) and get another 50mm that is compact / light but a bit brighter and a 28/35mm as well.

  14. Thank you to everyone who took part in last month's 145th Barnack's Monthly theme,which was filled with more than 1,600 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 146th Barnack's Monthly theme for November 2020 is: Wood. This month's theme is any picture that includes wood or the word "wood". For example, it could be a wooden house, a wooden bench, a wood carving, clogs, a wooden dashboard, a cartwheel, a forest, a wooden handle on a mangle, a soapbox cart, a wooden fence, a plywood shed, a balsa-wood aeroplane, a Mahogany dresser, an oak chest, the actor Edward Woodward, the Beatles' Norwegian Wood, sandalwood incense, Pinewood Studios, a wooden paling, wooden window frames, a wooden bird feeder, the actor Elijah Wood, woodland, a glade, a giant Sequoia tree, a ship's wooden slipway, St John's Wood, Brookwood cemetery, a telephone pole, an old telephone box, a picture frame, a wooden ornament - it's entirely your choice so let your imagination run free! It would be a big 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.

  15. Thank you to everyone who took part in last month's 132nd Barnack's Monthly theme, which was filled with nearly 500 pictures, excellent ideas and interpretations of the theme.

The Barnack's Monthly theme for October 2019 is: Stone or rock. This month's theme is any pictures containing stone or rock in some form (for example marble, gravel, pebbles, sand boulders etc), or the words "stone" or "rock" by themselves or as part of another word.

I like the Noctilux range for the extreme apertures, but I prefer the Summilux range for the best speed:size/weight ratio. Here’s a Summilux gathering of 21, 24, 28, 35, 50 and 75mm. All in black.

  25. Liebe Leica-Freunde, mir ist ein Zitat von Oskar Barnack zu Ohren gekommen, das (so oder so ähnlich) lauten soll: "Wir sind Feinmechaniker, und das genügt." Ist so ein Ausspruch von Barnack tatsächlich überliefert? Kennt irgendjemand hierfür eine Belegstelle (bräuchte ich für eine Publikation)? Danke im Voraus für HInweise, beste Grüße!
