menos I M6

"SLR vs. RF" or how I spent a sleepless night with a flash and M8.2

I couldn't sleep well that night, so I played around with remote flash, to figure out some handling for using it in very dark places outside:

Dirk,

 

Great shots of my favorite film cameras, the M6 and the Nikon F3hp. I now use my M6 most of the time for film shots but on occasion when I want macro shots, I still use the Nikon. You seem to be doing things with the flash. They look great.

Thanks Paul, yes, they where shot with flash.

I too prefer the Leica M for weight, focussing and overall handling opposed to SLRs, but the F3 really is a threat for focussing fast lenses with that big finder.

 

For this shot, I wanted actually take the M7 into the foreground, but it was still loaded and attached to the motor, so the contrast would have been less ;-)
