What a fine piece of equipment! 

I waffled a bit on getting an M5 due to the objections many people have concerning size and weight but did want a film M with light meter. After speaking with Sherry Krauter who many here know is a fan of the M5, I decided to purchase based on the reported meter accuracy and traditional Wetzlar design philosophy before drastic cost cutting measures were implemented. The story of rejection of the M5 by Leica faithful is akin to the Ferrari Mondial which was never accepted by the faithful simply for having 4 seats instead of 2. They still look, handle and most importantly sound like a Ferrari but now can be had at a fraction of the cost.

I am looking forward to getting to know this camera and posting images here....Cheers!

On the street it is faster to use / meter than the other M’s (except M7), though it does not have frames for 28mm, and it is relatively large. Also, lots of things seem to work the other way round (rewind button, counter). To me its an ergonomic marvel,  a practical tool, and somehow it also takes excellent pictures. I am sure you enjoy using your M5.

Really nice Philly exposé, thank you. What film did you use?

Great Steve, really great. Has a certain ballet quality to it, somehow (to my admittedly usually quite befuddled mind).

Tri-X, Pen FT, 70mm f/2

I really like these two, Xíara. In some way they're opposites to each other, yet in some ways they are very similar. Fascinating.

Haha yes anything made of brick these days is just hip. Still a terrific black and white photo.

M2 Ultron 35/2 Delta 100 in DDX

We had a discussion a few hundred pages back (:rolleyes:) about sunsets. I'm a big fan, just like I like ice cream and other simple pleasures. There's nothing like a G type main sequence star disappear beyond the horizon. Speaking of sunsets, I really like the German word for it, Sonnenuntergang. It has an ominous feel to it due to the Untergang (downfall) part, which I have always liked.

I know, sunsets are somewhat boring, but as I don't find anything better on my films, I come up with another golden light :)

Darn you Chris. I must resist buying another camera.

Does that mean pics from a Pen F are still OK? 😆

Thank you Philip, most kind. 

In the FART 'pre-flight' check list, the pattern caught my eye. But it wasn't until I viewed the negative that I further visualised the graphic opportunities. 

I adjusted exposure plus the black and white points.

I believe it was Portra 160. Thanks for the compliment.

Thanks Philip. Must be the light (and the film of course) that links them. They were taken probably within 5 minutes of one another and the view of landscape is just a few yards away from the top of the ramp in the second photo. Cheers

Please excuse my late reply. It is hard to vote for one film, which has lot to do with the fact that I experienced failures with both emulsions. Since I don't have the negatives back, yet, I also can't tell anything reliable about the grain. As soon as I get my hands on the negatives I will do some test scans with my Coolscan to see how exactly the emulsions compare to the films I used regularly. The output with the 50D seems to be a bit more to my liking so far, its downside is the slow speed, as it should be overexposed by 1 stop which makes it a perfect match for sunny days, but will fail in the soon beginning autumn here.

Anyway, her comes another cobble stone street from Rovinj, Croatia:

M4-P - Cron 35 - Silbersalz35 50D

Nice framing. a bit greenish the sky(my mac laptop?) (scanning? but as i see on their Silbersalz site tey have a profesional scanner?? )

 

+ one interested for the negs scanned with coolscan.
