  1. Hi, this is my first post. I would appreciate some advice: I'm about to leave for almost a month, going to Bolivia for a leisure trip. I won't be alone, so it's not a trip focusing on photography, but I will definitely use my camera as much as possible. I have a passion for street and documentary style, a little portrait, environmental and not, but I definitely don't disdain landscape! I use a M240: first of all, I'm a 50mm man - that will be the main lens for me. I'm still trying to decide which between the Nokton 50mm 1.2 or the Planar ZM 50mm f2 - lightness or speed? I might go for speed, that Nokton is not that big at all! And a pleasure to use. The other lens I already decided about is the Biogon 21mm f2 ZM, great wide angle; that will definitely be in my bag. Two doubts: 90mm Tele-Elmarit thin or 135mm Tele-Elmar? if I go light, will I miss the reach? I really enjoy shooting both, and both don't see use too often. But I don't mind a little more weight if necessary. Second doubt: should I take my 35mm? I have a wonderful Biogon 35mm f2 ZM but I fear it would see almost no use...although I think i interiors it might be more useful than the 50mm when shooting people! What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance!!
  2. Before I used a Leica I used to travel with a Hasselblad, but my neck could not carry the weight all day. When I bought my first M6 (and now an M9), portability, size, and image quality were the most important features. But I wonder, how many Leica users buy their equipment with travel in mind? Thanks-Adam Adam Marelli Photo
  3. Take at my favourite location in Southampton Leica M240 + 35mm Summicron f2.5 @ 320 iso.
  4. Last week I visited London with my son. I brought my M4-P and some rolls of film with me and want to share some of the pictures I made in this thread. We had a really great time in a sunny London and managed to see a lot of this town. My last visit dates back to the mid 90's and I have to admit, that my memories to this last visit where not the best. Back then we had the typical London weather with the occasional rain, and as I was much younger in those days, my wallet was a lot thinner than nowadays Although you will only see my touristic view on London in this thread, any feedback is strongly appreciated. Let's start with some street art from the East End. While we where walking on the tracks of Jack the Ripper and searched for some of the locations of his crimes in this area, we where excited about the many pieces of street art all over the place: M4-P - Summicron 35 - Agfa CT 100 Precisa (slide film)
  5. Something new to worry about when traveling with Leica Cameras: From the Washington Post: TSA tests scanners that allow travelers to keep electronics and liquids in their bags when going through airport security by Andrea Sachs August 13 at 7:00 AM For what feels like eons, Transportation Security Administration officers have been reminding travelers to remove all electronics and liquids from their carry-on bags and place them in a tray. At more than a dozen airports, however, passengers are hearing a new refrain: Keep your items in your luggage. This summer, the agency is amping up its pilot test of new CT scanners (in longhand, computed tomography checkpoint scanners). Fifteen airports throughout the country, including Washington Dulles and BWI Marshall, will employ the new technology. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport was the first facility to receive the advanced screening innovation, in 2017, followed by Boston Logan and New York’s JFK. The 3-D imaging equipment resembles a hospital CT scanner, with bags replacing bodies. The technology uses an X-ray camera to shoot hundreds of images, thereby assembling a fuller view of the objects tucked inside carry-ons. TSA officials can rotate the items on three axes, a vast improvement from the current scanners, which provide only 2-D images. By improving detection, TSA hopes to reduce the number of secondary bag inspections and speed up the security process, a triple bonus for travelers. “This is the same technology as checked bags,” said Lisa Farbstein, a TSA spokeswoman. “This can really detect explosives.” The agency will integrate the 3-D scanners into regular security lines. To participate in the test, head for the lane with the giant white machine that resembles a sci-fi movie prop. Then, fight the urge to remove your electronics and liquids, and walk on through. Despite the change of one rule, several others remain, including the size restriction on liquids (remember your 3-1-1). You must also remove your coat and shoes, unless you are part of a trusted traveler program such as PreCheck. TSA plans to install up to 40 units by the close of the year and more than 145 by the end of fiscal year 2019.
  6. Please feel free to post any portraits of the people you have met while traveling. Do give some back story of the person shown and why and where you took the picture. Looking forward to some interesting pictures and stories! I'll start it off with this one taken in Malaysia. This lovely lady is the eldest of three sisters and she has the ability to enter a trance-like state where she apparently can commune with the spirits in order to help people with whatever problems they may have. She does this only on a personal level, not commercial or advertised as a service of any kind. This is her home, nothing has been arranged for the shot, it is what it is. I'm not a believer, and make of it what you will, but she does bring much comfort to those that come to her and that's not a bad thing at all. M9 with 35mm Summicron mark IV
  7. Armed with the Leica M10, a handful of US Dollars and my fedora hat I landed in Cuba and made this story and some photos. Enjoy! http://overgaard.dk/Leica-M10-digital-rangefinder-camera-page-02-Leica-M10-goes-to-Cuba.html
  8. I'm on the hunt for a camera to compliment my M7 for travel photography. Ideally, I'd like an M mount body with a shutter speed of 1/2000 or higher. On a recent trip to Cuba, I took with me my M7 body, 50mm Summicron & 35mm Summicron. To compliment that setup, I also brought along a Contax G2 and ended up using it quite a bit because of its fast shutter speed (1/6000) and ability to shoot "wide open" during the day. The problem, however, is having to switch between two different systems. I've since sold the G2 but now own a 35mm Summilux Pre-ASPH and would love to shoot that beautiful lens wide open during the day. I know that I could just buy an ND filter but maybe there is an M mount body out there that would suit my needs? Currently, the Konica Hexar RF seems to be the practical choice. Any other cameras out there that I should consider?

  17. Hello my fellow Leica shooters..... I am looking for advice from the peanut gallery on a lens purchase. In short, I am going to be spending three weeks traveling Thailand soon, and need to travel light, so I'll be carrying my M240 during the trip. At one point in the trip, I will also be taking a 4 day kayak trip and will be doing a bit of shooting from the kayak. I have two options: 1) Buy a used version of the 28-35-50 Tri-Elmer MATE lens - which I've never used before. I've read extensively about it, but dont have hands-on with the lens. 2) Take my existing 50mm Summicron and 21mm lenses and buy a 35mm Summicron and carry a set of three lenses. Each of these options has pros and cons - the only neutral is the price, with the MATE being just a tad cheaper. Obviously option #1 means I don't have to deal with lens changes, but I'm limited to f/4 for nighttime and low-light shooting. Anyone been to Thailand have experience with the night scenes in cities like Bangkok - will I be handicapped with an f/4 lens? Option 2 has the benefit of being f/2 lenses and each lens is smaller than the MATE, but I'd have to conduct lens changes more often. I welcome any thoughts - I realize this is a personal opinion and decision, but am curious what you'd do in the situation? Thanks Kristen
  18. Hey, I went to Vietnam this summer and shot a series that was among other featured on the leica camera blog. You can check that out here: http://blog.leica-camera.com/2016/09/25/lounging-in-vietnam/ But of course I shot a lot more than just those few images in the series! So I still had a ton of photos from my trip to Vietnam buried in Lightroom. I haven’t posted any of them anywhere because I couldn’t really figure out how to arrange them in a story that would make any sense. Also most of these photos are a tad too touristy for my taste. But since I still really like them and can’t stand the thought of never showing them I decided to split them up into a couple of smaller sets and post them on my blog - of course fully aware that tumblr is pretty much dead these days. But hey, any place is better than the depths of my hard drive. All photo are taken with a Leica M6 and the 35mm Summicron IV on Kodak Portra 160 or 400. You can find some of the photo already on my blog and I will keep updating over the next few days. Blog: http://lifeon35.tumblr.com/

  20. Hi all, a brief announcement that I’ve just finished work on my second self-published book of photographs. Captured with the M Typ 262 and 28mm Elmarit-M (version IV) during a week’s travels through the North of Italy, the book presents 32 black and white photographs ranging in subject matter from people to places both natural and constructed. I’m really proud of how this project has turned out. The book is printed on thick 170gsm uncoated stock, with the covers being an even heavier 300gsm. The size is somewhere between compact to standard at A5 (210x148mm), which gives each print enough room to breathe without feeling cramped. Also exciting is that, working with a professional printer who works at reasonable prices, I’ve been able to price the book at just £15 + shipping. For those who are curious to know a little more, I’ve written a bit more on the back-story on my blog. You can also watch a trailer that I produced for the book here. Finally, if you’d like to pick up a copy, please slide on over to my online shop to do so. Thanks kindly for your interest, and happy shooting!

    http://marcderydt.com/santorini/ A gallery with a few pictures from Santorini and mostly Oía, the best-known and most picturesque village on the island. Santorini in a a few words: white houses, blue domes, sea, sunset, churches, selfies, Chinese weddings, donkeys, stairs, cliff, doors. Can't wait to go back actually ;-) As to equipment, I went there with an S-Typ007 and the 70mm, 120mm and 30-90mm Vario lenses. The zoom proved to be very useful and was used the most. No issue with the camera whatsoever and I am still amazed at seeing what comes out. I had a Leica Q as a back-up, but hardly used it. The files were imported into Capture One and processed in Photoshop as needed.
  23. After dropping off a friend at John Wayne, I couldn't resist grabbing my camera since I was parked at the end of the runway.
