Hellsten is currently working with a year long project HELSINKI365, where he documents everyday life in Helsinki together with Helsinki Marketing Ltd. Hellsten conducted HELSINKI365 first time in 2012, and his main tool back then was Leica M9-P. Now when to project relaunched in November 2013, his main tool had been upgraded to Leica M (Typ 240).

      Hi to all... I've just published an article on my little blog. Let me know what do you think if you have time to read it. 🙂
      Blog post: Why Leica?
    • By Bokatom
      I bought my first Leica recently, a T. I'd always loved the design, the single block of aluminium build, and been intrigued by the touchscreen operating system. It always seemed to be a very modern interpretation of an APS-C camera by a company that's know for its long traditions. And with prices so low I thought it was worth trying one out. I'm a bit of a camera tart, you name it over the last 10 years and I've probably had one. I'm a hobbyist rather than a serious photographer and the feel of a camera and the enjoyment of using it is almost as important to me as the image quality.
      I didn't have a lens for it and while I was deciding which ones I should get I ordered the 7artisans 55mm f/1.4 from China. It's a manual lens (I haven't shot manual for years), and quite long (82.5mm equivalent) but very cheap, and it luckily arrived the morning of my holiday to Suffolk so I packed the T as well as my Pana GX9 just in case.
      I was quite surprised just how much I enjoyed using a manual focus lens after so long away. I'm desperately short of practice but thanks to the T's ability to let you zoom in to focus (thanks to everyone on here who helped me work out how to do it) I think I did ok. My Visoflex 020 hasn't arrived yet so all my shots were done using the screen to compose and focus, which was a bit tricky.
      To say I was pleased would be an understatement. I love the feel of the T, think the image quality with the 7artisans was very nice, and loved the look and feel of the pairing. I've got a 35mm Voigtlander M mount as well, just waiting for the adapter to arrive! I think that will be a more useful day to day lens. But even so I found the 55mm quite useful, and even managed some wildlife pics. 
      Most of the images below were taken at F4, with one or two at f1.4 for a bit of variety. Any feedback or advice is more than welcome, I certainly consider myself a Leica beginner, despite my advanced age!

      I have a couple questions for those who have owned or had experience with the T and TL bodies. I realize this has been discussed in other threads, but I’m hoping for a little more insight. Even when auto review is turned off on my T body, the captured image lingers on the screen for a second (the equivalent of "blackout" on other cameras), prohibiting me from immediately composing my next shot. I admit that's not a lot of time, but it can have an impact on my shooting workflow. So my questions are 1) do the TL and TL2 also have this issue, and 2) does using a faster memory card decrease the time it takes for the monitor to become live again? For reference, I'm using a Panasonic SDHC Class 10 UHS-3 card with a 45 MB/s write time, and I'm shooting RAW (DNG) with 1.8 MB jpeg files. The T has no option for shooting DNG only, unfortunately.

      Hello everyone - I'm new here and would like to introduce myself.
      After a long absence from photography and recently only snapping with my (very good) camera phone, today i bought a brand new Leica T (silver) with 18-56 zoom lens. I've asked the company to update the firmware before shipping and want to ask you if there is any need in addition to whatever comes in the box. E.g. a decent strap, a cover for the body etc. I cannot find any filters to sit on the lens i.e. ND, UV etc.
      I do not intend to look for a VF atm and would rather put funds toward a 23mm Summicron.
      What are your thoughts please?

      Hi all - new to the forum and new to Leica!
      Just got an as new Leica T this week and have a couple of bugs I'd like to fix:
      Firstly the Leica T app was working fine until i upgraded the firmware to 1.7 - any ideas? won't always connect and when it does cant read the pics from my SD.
      Secondly - the strap lugs won't click into place without me putting the pin in - surely should only need the pin when taking the strap out?
      Any advice would be great!
