Leica C Images - Post Them Here

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I picked up my C a couple of years ago, and I pretty  much only use it for taking photos at concerts. I wanted something small, sort of "stealthy," with a good lens for low light, and a decent zoom. I've been considering upgrading to a D-Lux (probably a Typ 109) but after looking at some of these photos in this forum, maybe I'll continue using my C and also carry it out more when I head into the streets. 

Here's a photo from Jan 29 when Peter Murphy came to town. 

Leica C (typ 112) ISO 1600.

We seem to have a lot of these at the factory at present.  I'm rather taken by the colour! :)

Hmm, there used to be a rather derogatory name applied to a somewhat similar colour on Austin Allegros etc...   ;)

Lost the thread where someone posted a still life of recently purchased fresh vegetables, so as this was taken on a "C" and I don't have any fresh veg (need to go shopping) at present, this is my version.  Suppose it might be termed a "bean feast"!

Lovely picture, dunk.

Have you ever used the advance/retard adjustment?

Have not adjusted this particular watch Pete as it's a bit too 'high end' … prefer to ask my watchmaker who will adjust FOC while I wait ( Mark Wiles, Antique & Modern, East Barnet London :) ) … and who will also advise if needs a service. It's a 70 years young watch … but similar quality to e.g. a Leica rangefinder camera.

What a super image - the little C's are so powerful particularly in the right hands.

I still use a wind up watch, just cannot be bothered with unreliable batteries. Mine has served me well for 67 years with care from my watchmakers. Mechanical watched have character - something which battery models don't have.

Weirdly, I can smell it! 😄  The brain is a wonderful organ.

While it's sad that your friend passed away all those years ago it's wonderful that the Lilac has brought his memory back to you and hopefully in a positive way where you can recall and chuckle about the good times you had together.

Thanks Pete.

She was a lovely lady.  She bought it for my wife.  It didn't do a lot over the first few years, but we had a chuckle about that as we found the hound kept "watering" it :)  Since his demise it has really shot up and now a good couple of fee taller than I.  Nice to be able to look out of the office window at this time of year to see all the blooms (then go and pull some rhubarb that lives next to it).

Glad you can smell it - with my hay fever I'm having difficulty :D

      In the beautiful parish church of St. Mary's, Lydiard Tregoze, Wiltshire. Leica C (an amazingly capable little gem of a camera!).
