  1. Hi everybody, I’m a computer science engineer who has been working, as a hobby, the last three years in a new, more precise, way of recreating film look with digital cameras. I’m posting here for feedback, in case anybody of you would like to test the application (with the M9) and show the results and your opinions. I usually shoot film photography but also I like the comfort of digital. The problem is that I’ve never been happy with existing film emulations. Mainly because of that, because they are emulations instead of simulations. METHOD USED For doing so, instead of doing a generic conversion for every camera, I’ve done a specialised conversion for the Leica M9 based on simulating the chemical process and spectrum response, instead of applying curves and other stuff. In the end, I thought, if analog and digital are just two instruments which capture light, I thought, maybe is there any mathematical conversion to make the digital to look like film? I mean, if I take the same photo with analog and digital, under exact same conditions (light / aperture / exposition /…) could I make them look exactly the same? It’s based on chemical simulation and the Leica M9’s response to spectrum. Then LUTs and finally some extra calibration. I think that it could be improved because I’ve used home made or open source tools for calibrating and so on, which are far from perfect. EXAMPLES (Analog vs Converted Digital) Following are some examples of Superia 200 and TriX 400. Click in each photo to see high resolution. DNGs shoots taken with Leica M9 (left), and FILM shoots taken with Minolta CLE (right) at same conditions (aperture / exposition / ISO). All shoots taken with Zeiss Biogon T* ZM 35mm f/2. The examples show several photos, which are the following: +------------------------+------------------------+ | original DNG | | +------------------------+------------------------+ | converted DNG | scanned FILM | +------------------------+------------------------+ | developed DNG | developed FILM | +------------------------+------------------------+ For the generated simulated negative TIFF file and the scanned TIFF file I’ve applied exactly the same develop parameters. TriX 400 - 1 TriX 400 - 2 TriX 400 - 3 Superia 200 - 1 Superia 200 - 2 Superia 200 - 3 Superia 200 - 4 Superia 200 - 5 Superia 200 - 6 CONCLUSIONS Tonal range - Biggest difference between digital and film Dynamic range - Digital is faaar more detailed in the blacks, film never gets burnt, meanwhile digital gets burn quite fast. Film has more microcontrast, it's more sharpen Digital is a little bit more contrast after developing, I imagine it’s because it reach white level faster, then, when doing autolevels with the developing program, as a result, it’s a more contrast image. DOWNLOAD I'm having a console application ready, if interest is shown it will be ready quite soon! CAVEHEATS / LIMITATIONS The program only accept DNG, because I need all the light captured by the camera, instead of a JPG already converted and really dependent on camera self made adjustments. The program only accepts photos taken at the ISO of the certain film that is gonna be used. For example, for TriX400 it will accept only Leica M9 DNGs at 400 ISO. I’ve also done tests with ISO 200 and 800, and the results were quite satisfactory but, for complexity reasons, I prefer to let it be native film ISO for the moment. Highlights are not always correct, and sometimes they look weird, mainly in color film. This is due to bayer sensor pattern and its different intensity response (for Red, Green and Blue channels). FUTURE (& PAST) WORK Leica M10-D Leica M8.2 THANKS Super thanks to the creator of LibRaw, a wonderful C++ library for working with RAW files. Any questions I’m open to answer 🙂 Best regards everybody. Tomás AKA “Camalogica”
  2. Because of the covid-19 lockdown I am unable to go out on to the streets to photograph, not that there are any people around. I am therefore still working through my archives, and came across this image from Paris in 2002. Taken with a Leica M6, 50mm Summicron f2 and using Kodak T400CN film (which I used to love!). I hope you like it. I have also been revamping my web site using Adobe Portfolio, which is part of the Lightroom/Photoshop package, and like the results so far, although it is a work in progress. Take a look here Gerry

  4. This fireboat is celebrating the arrival of a new cruise liner on her maiden voyage in my home town of Southampton. The image is from my archive when I was shooting film. Taken on Fuji RDP using a Leica R8 but I am afraid I have no other details recorded. It was recently selected by LFI to include in their galleries. Sadly the cruise terminals are empty now because of COVID-19, but the future looks promising. The container ships are as busy as ever (and we see the very biggest) and a major new cruise terminal is being constructed. Gerry
  5. Hallo werte Leica-Forumsteilnehmer, vor gut einem Jahr hatte ich mich wegen eines Belichtungsproblems meiner R4 hier im Leica-Forum bereits zu Wort gemeldet (und weiss nun endlich auch, dass der kleine Elektromagnet, der die Springblende im rechten Moment stoppen soll, defekt ist. Alle bisherigen Reparaturangebote überstiegen aber bei weitem den Wert der Kamera, so dass ich mir als "vorläufigen" Ersatz für mein R-System eine zweite R5 zugelegt habe, die auch glücklicherweise tadellos funktioniert...). Ich möchte Heute aber ein anderes Thema ansprechen, welches mir schon seit einiger Zeit sprichwörtlich "unter den Fingernägeln brennt": Findet ihr auch, dass innerhalb von nur gut ein bis zwei Jahren das Preisniveau der Analogfotografie exorbitant gestiegen ist??? Klar, dass das fast schon unterirdische Preisniveau für alte Kameras, Filme, Entwickler & Entwicklungslabore von vor gut zehn Jahren längst Geschichte ist, nie mehr wiederkehren wird und sicherlich auch dem Fortbestand der filmbasierten Fotografie nicht unbedingt förderlich war. Nischeninteressen können durchaus kostspielig sein, und dazu gehört klassisches Fotografieren auf Film ja inzwischen eindeutig. Aber was jetzt gerade abgeht - ganz ohne Corona-Krise - ist nun wirklich teils schon absurd! Da werden etwa für uralte, abgelaufene 135er-Diafilme wie Agfa Precisa oder Kodak Elitechrome teilweise reinste Wucherpreise verlangt. Hier mal ein Beispiel aus dem bekannten Online-Auktionskaufhaus: https://www.ebay.de/itm/Fur-Sammler-1x-Agfa-Agfaphoto-Precisa-CT-100-36-Diafilm-Ablaufdatum-2014-12/223921237768?hash=item3422beef08:g:-OAAAOSwvRJeTrdi Aha, für Sammler also - ernsthaft?! Es gibt wirklich schon Leute, die jetzt unbedingt noch mal einen erst vor kurzem ausgelisteten Drogeriemarkt-Diafilm verknipsen wollen und bereit sind, derartige Wucherpreise zu berappen??? Bei den gebrauchten Kameras sieht es nicht besser aus. Auch hier meint wohl mittlerweile jeder windige, Opas Keller ausräumende Erbschaftler irgendeiner banalen Durchschnitts-Spiegelreflex, er habe das große Los gezogen und müsste hinsichtlich des aufgerufenen Verkaufspreises nun einen auf Fachhändler machen. Kam mir jedenfalls so vor, als ich unlängst eine Kamera für eine fotografierende Freundin aussuchen durfte, die nicht allzu teuer sein und einen PK-Anschluss haben sollte. Also mal bei Ebay-Kleinanzeigen nach alten Ricohs umgesehen, weil diese entsprechend eigener Erfahrung einfach, gut und robust sind. Doch dann kam tatsächlich nur sowas hier bei rum: https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/ricoh-xr-10-mit-zubehoer/1332175555-245-4619 Die gleiche Kamera - ich würde sie als ganz gut ausgestattetes Einsteigergerät bezeichnen - habe ich noch mit einem deutlich besseren 50er-P-Rikenon vor drei Jahren für sage und schreibe 15 Euro bei einem Fachhändler (!) als Wühltischfund erworben. Sie funktioniert übrigens ganz ausgezeichnet, was ich von den genannten Privatangeboten eher nicht erwarten würde... Ich bin wohl nicht der Einzige, dem dieses aktuelle Wucherpreisniveau auf dem Gebrauchtmarkt aufgefallen ist, auch der von mir sehr geschätzte Foto-Youtuber Steffen Schüngel hat dies unlängst thematisiert: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YN1hXQmbaNA Was meint ihr, findet ihr auch, dass die derzeit stark steigende Preisspirale im Endeffekt zu einer weiteren Abnahme an Filmfotografie-Interessierten - inzwischen soll das "Jammertal" ja schon durchschritten sein und wieder mehr auf Film fotografiert werden - und damit irgendwann zu einem selbst für den geneigten Leica-Nutzer kaum noch bezahlbaren Vergnügen werden könnte? Die verschiedenen Meinungen hierzu würden mich mal interessieren. Grüße an alle Leica-Fans, Anigrapher
  6. Help! My father recently passed away and I sifted thru his camera closet. I found film, presumably from my grandfather, who was an avid photographer. It is a Leica box with cardboard tubes (see image). These tubes had film in them. Most of the film was tightly rolled, not encased in anything other than the cardboard. There were a couple (3?) that had a metal cartridge around them. I have no idea which camera the film came from. All I know is that one of the rolls was possibly from 1934, as that was written on the bottom of the cardboard tube. What has woken me up in a cold sweat was that I fear that the tight rolls...is it possible that he offloaded the film without developing it? Have I exposed the film by removing it from the tubes in the light? Thanks in advance for any thoughts/ideas on this crazy situation!
  7. Disclaimer: I'm starting a new topic regarding the issues found in my newly purchased Leica MP, the purpose of this is to share any ideas that could lead to a solution, this is not a rant about Leica lack of QC which we all know is becoming an issue. After receiving my camera I run a roll of Kodak TriX 400, after developing the film I found a trace of scratches, I did several test with other films which I didn't develop (in case the scratches were being caused by my development process): Bergger Pancro 400, Ilford HP5+. They all show the same type of scratches. This is an undeveloped roll, https://ibb.co/RbxynrM https://ibb.co/8xkfs17 I found several threads with people claim the source of this issues was the pressure plate so I checked mine in order the find anything that could be the reason, the screws in the plate don't match the position of the marks in the film and the surface of the plate in my camera feels smooth and flat, I wondered if maybe the reason could be the bridge that has the connection for the light meter but after more inspection it was obvious that the plate keeps the very flat and it does not touch that area. I did another test in which I rub some film on the surface of the plate, to my surprise the film was very scratched, I did the same against the plate in my 1958 M2 and it didn't do a single one. I also did a couple of prints to verify the scratches appear and unfortunately the scratches are visible even on a middle size print. This is the print, the scratches appear in the top and the bottom https://ibb.co/VpKsdfb
  8. Hi All, my CLA'd 111f's will be arriving shortly, I'm hoping to use one for B&W and the other for Color,, This is just going to be a fun exercise, which films would you suggest? (It must be 20years since I used my film cameras, R6.2 & M6) - L

    LEICA M7 (0.72 VF) BODY #3328314 in a set with Leica Summicron 50mm f2-M 6-Bit #4037804. BEAUTIFUL CONDITION BOXED & COMPLETE I’m offering for sale my Leica M7 (0.72 VF) #3328314 in the starter set with a Leica Summicron 50mm f2 -M 6-Bit #4037804 set, bought from Red Dot Cameras London. I was using this regularly, along with a number of other film bodies I have as I am a bit of a collector. I mainly shoot digital but I still run a film through it regularly just to make sure it is working well. This is a wonderful camera to use and the lens is perfect. The camera comes complete with all original packaging, an unused camera strap, manual and body cap and a battery which I have not left inside the camera. The camera is in beautiful condition with just a little bit of brass rubbing, the lens has a little cosmetic rubbing on the rim as may be seen in the photograph but the glass itself is perfect. I hope the images attest to the condition of the camera and speak for themselves. I have more photos of the camera and lens if you want to see the condition of them - the advert limits how many photos I can post. Priced at £2300 GBP. Bank transfer or cash on collection from my SW London UK home (in Wandsworth). Alternatively the camera will be packaged very securely and postage will be charged extra at cost. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Regards, Victoria

    This is an image off of the first roll from my first L Camera, a nice used 35mm black MP and 40mm Summicron-C. Taken in New Orleans, Louisiana.
  15. Good morning, I am going to Amman next year to continue my arabic language studies at the university and do a lot of photographic work in the old palestinian, and new syrian refugee camps. Instead of ordering film and chemicals when I get there I was thinking someone here on the forum maybe live there or has experience of buying these things in Amman? Would be nice also to meet some local analog photographers.
  16. This is a small selection of photographs from a series I shot in Istanbul and Bursa during short trip to Turkey. You can check the full series out on my site: http://www.philippwortmann.com/istanbul Or follow me on one of my social media things, down below. All shot on 35mm Kodak Portra 400 with a Leica M6 & 35mm Summicron IV lens. Scanned by myself with a Pakon 135+
  17. So, my M3 arrived on Christmas Eve and now has a roll of HP5+ in it. Still working on the settings to cope with the light and lack of meter (using iPhone Light Meter App for now). Just means taking two shots all the time as I realise I've checked something but not made any changes! A real change from my previous SLR/DSLRs - things are now always in focus, except in the little square. I know practice is the best form of learning, and I'm doing a lot of that. But does anyone have any recommendations for books on rangefinder technique?

    Las Familias

    After many years of work, I have finally edited down my 51,267 photos of Honduran families to 52 and published my first Blurb book: http://www.blurb.com/books/6725808-las-familias All photos made with Leica rangefinders, all with black and white film. I still have second thoughts about what I should and should not have included but I had lots of help editing and will save the second thoughts for another book! You can preview the whole book on Blurb. Let me know what you think! Tina
  20. Hello all, Just want to introduce myself - I am doing photography since 1985. As the headline states, I grew up in Germany but live for professional reasons not related to photography since 2005 permanently in the US. I just recently acquired my first Leica camera - the Leica M6 since I always wanted to have a fully mechanic reliable camera including a light meter. I want to do B&W film photography with this camera since I still develop my own film and use my darkroom to make silver gelatin prints both from digital files (using homemade digital negatives) and from film negatives. My style is predominantly landscape and fine art photography combined with B&W converted infrared photography. This said, I am also using digital cameras in parallel to film cameras. For infrared, I am currently using a converted Canon 5D MkII full frame DSLR with 715 nm cutoff filter, for digital landscape/macro/fine art work I am using a Sony A7R - predominantly with Leica and Voigtlander lenses plus adapter. I am not fixed to just one brand regarding photo gear and simply use what I consider best for my needs. I am looking forward to share photos and experience regarding Leica cameras and M mount lenses. Martin

  22. Hello all, I am new to the forum and new to the Leica world too. I just moved over to a MP from a Nikon FM2n- great camera but needed something a bit quieter and something that I could focus more quickly. Anyways, had a quick question about cleaning the viewfinder. A neighbor of mine came by to check out the camera, and put a nice thumb print on the glass. I tried using a micro fiber cloth but that just swirled the oils around. I read online that you can use rubbing alcohol? Anyone tried this? Also, wanted to know if anyone had some thoughts on home developing. It is getting expensive and where I only shoot black and white I thought I might develop myself. Any thoughts on tanks and chemicals? Some people are really into the Patterson tanks and others hate them..any suggestions on where to buy metal tanks? Thanks for taking the time to read, and answer. Sincerely, Peter
  23. I was messing around this morning and was wondering how to develop just a partial roll. It started because I had a roll of Tri-X 135-36 in the camera and was impatient to make sure that everything was ok. I had shot 14 shots so I took a sacrificial roll and marked off 14 frames using a sharpie and then I started it threading onto a Paterson roll and counted the "ratchets" so that 14 shots got onto the roll. Then I threaded the real film onto the roll and went into the dark bag. I ratcheted it the same number of times and put it into the tank. After developing I found that it worked perfectly..the exact right amount of images was developed. I put the rest of the film back into the camera. Good to know. You veterans may know this already but it's new and interesting to me
