I'm thinking of going to the Holi festival in Delhi (the coloured dust thrown everywhere one) this year and obviously want to take my M240. I can throw on a 15mm lens which means I can pretty much point and shoot but what is the best way to protect the whole thing. Is it freezer bags and tape are are there custom options? Many thanks in advance, Dave.
Are there any new "space age" type gloves/mittens that would permit convenient and comfortable use of the camera in below freezing temperatures? Providing some protection from the cold yet maintaining flexibility and tactile sensing of focus ring and shutter release. Camera itself inside my jacket until being used. Thanks, Harry
Although the pro/ con discussion has been beaten to death in numerous forums, I feel obliged to urge my fellow Leicaists: 1. Use filters, use filters, use filters! 2. Better still: close hip bag properly 40 years of accident free photography passed by in an instant... M7 & Cron 50 V with Leica UV filter after full drop on asphalt. Body and lens elements seem to be miraculously undamaged (besides minor mark on retractable hood). Focusing is butter smooth and aperture clicks softly (lens and camera visited Wetzlar half a year ago for a full CLA). I still have to find a way to remove the filter, though, which seems cold-welded to the lens thread... Kind regards Mathias
