I own too many cameras. Many more than I care to list....

 

How about a photo?

This is an amazing collection of cameras and lenses (as far as I can see)

One is missing?

- as lighter alternative to my multiple M - not to bother with M lenses, in case of M10 fails out of order - in this case, film is fun again - take one of the two to decide just before leaving - with many more films of course   Hello guest!

I cannot use the M10 to shoot airshows, for one, I dont have the long lens and also AI autofocus to track fast subejcts. :-) Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. Hallo Gast! Du willst die Bilder sehen? Einfach registrieren oder anmelden!

I could get a GFX. But that'd just be a bit excessive......

Beyond Leicas, I still own Fuji X  and Pentax MF stuff which rarely get used these days.  Working with a single system is less distracting. 

 

Doing a full day of shooting a rehearsal and concert this weekend, both front and back of house.  I've shot this group several times, this is the first year I'll be doing so with purely a Leica system.  Three cameras, one bag. My tattered Ona loaded with the M10/Summilux 50 BC, M240, Distagon 35mm, a Q, a75mm Heliar 1.8 and the 135 APO.  Along with a pair of visoflexes, each camera has a grip and spare battery as well along with the typical assorted sundries.  Lot of horsepower to fit in one, admittedly a bit hefty, bag.

Hi tailwagger.

Would you mind posting the make of your equipment bag shown in your post.

It looks the type I have been looking out for. Good protection but soft as well and about the right size. I have a lot of gear but only take out what I need.

I have a Billingham which is an excellent bag but a bit rigid for my liking. I would keep it and use for storage.

Thanks in advance.

Mike.

Leica M9P and a Sony A7II which now gets very little use.

 

The M9P was my first Leica, four years ago, and I loved it and what came out of it, but it was limited in terms of ISO and the variety of lenses I could put on it. When I got my M10 in the summer I very reluctantly had to sell the M9P. Recently things have improved a little financially and I noticed for sale a beautiful silver M9P - mint, just 500 exposures and newly back from Wetzlar with a brand-new sensor - for a reasonable price. I love the CCD sensor look and I couldn't resist.

 

So M10 - best for lower light, longer lenses, R & Nikon lenses, interiors, EVF when necessary 

M9P - best for good light, wide to standard lenses. And of course much less lens changing needed when I take both bodies out with me.

No problem Mike.  Its an Ona Union Street.  Its a nice bag for carrying a pair of Ms with two or three extra lenses.  Its reasonably well made and does carry a bit of stuff.  Theres a slightly smaller model of similar construction as well, the Brixton, if you find this one a little too large.

Hi Tailwagger. Thank you for your reply. I think I will go for it, seems just about the right size. I do not own a M10 yet.

Hoping to put that right in new year. I have M9,M9mm, M3 and M6 TTL. Will probably trade the M9. I am hoping that with the m10 and live view I may be able to get in closer than standard. Not quite sure how that will work but I expect I can get help from forum members.

Thanks again.

Mike.

For film, a Contax G1 with the awesome 45mm f2.

 

I'm in on the M system, the TL system, and Olympus M43. The OM-D E-M1.2 for bad weather outdoor shooting and telephoto, the CL for lazy street shooting, and the M for real street shooting and portraits.

So the question is: if you own the M10, do you pair it with another body when you travel?  If you do, which one(s) and what are your reasons for doing so? 

 

M10 and M6 work well together when I want to shoot film and digital and when I want to share the same lenses.

I prefer to travel on the light side, which generally means my film Ms , as much as I love them, stay at home.  I find the ZM Ikon is a light body that fits nicely in my backpack with the M10.  If I want to bring along a pocket camera, I'll throw in the Minolta TC-1 or Oly XA.

Well I did intend to use just 35mm lenses but I found a 50mm Elmar-M I couldn't say no to, and then in a further moment of weakness found an M4 that needed a good home. I sold the Canon 35mm f/2 to make up for it. 

 

I mostly use the M10 by itself when I feel like shooting digital, otherwise I use film most of the time.

      Dear all,
       
      I bought the "reporter edition" of M10-P about 5 months ago. And it constantly has freezing issue. For the past few weeks, it's just been way too often, like 1 out 2 days it would freeze. I always turn the EV on when I'm shooting, and before it's about to freeze, the EV looks like it's having dropped frames, pretty lagging and then it would freeze, so I have to take the battery out and restart the camera. And many times it just freezes after I turn the camera on, I don't even get to press the shutter.
       
      Yesterday, I went out shooting and it froze again, but this time, after I restarted the camera like I always did, I found that the screen got a dark horizontal line on the very top of it (please view the photo I uploaded). I checked the photos, it's usually without the line on them, unless the ISO is 4000 or higher, then I got part of the line (or banding?) on the left side.
       
      Is this normal? Should I send the camera in for a replacement of the CMOS or something?

      Hi
      i’ve just got my first digital Leica, an M10R.
      coming from a canon background im used to connecting my camera directly to my mac and having the eos utility automatically download and organize my photos into different folders sorted by date,
      Obviously thats not the case with the Leica and i have to connect the sd card to my mac in which all the photos are stores in one folder that i have to manually create date stamped folders for on my hard drive.
      is there any way (in camera or through an app) that i can do something similar to the canon eos utility with the leica sd card and automatically import all the photos on it into date stamped folders?
