By TomB_txSome months back I supported a Kickstarter effort to produce a tiny light meter for old cameras, to be made in Canada. After some delays due to COVID, the first production is finished, and I received my unit today. It is easily the smallest and lightest light meter I've seen. The body is 3-D printed, but seems good quality. The control buttons are also tiny, but easier to use than I expected. Nice clear LCD display on the back. Works in either Aperture or Shutter priority. It calibrated easily to my Luna-Lux SBC and seems very accurate.
Here it is on a IIIf, where it works fine, although is very close to the shutter speed dial. On a model III or II it is too close, so the dial can't be lifted to set the speed.
Otherwise it is worth a look. The designer called the company REVENI LABS.

By nefariousHopefully nobody minds me asking an ignorant question...
I have an LTM Elmar 50mm f/2.8 and, reading the Ken Rockwell review, he recommends a Yellow #022 39mm filter for b&w photography with that lens. However, what I am really unsure about is how the filters fit to my lens and, if I am not to buy an authentic Leitz/Leica filter, what I need to look for on eBay, etc. I don't see any thread inside the collapsible lens so I am guessing that the filters either fit over the lens like the lens cap or somehow grip onto the inside of the lens.
Grateful for any insights plus suggestions re where I can get them!

By PyrogallolI was waiting for the next Challenge to start - seems I have to start it as well as pick the subject, as I was the last winner.
After "lines" I thought "curves" could be next.
Looking at previous challenges it appears that about 3 weeks to take the picture is about right, then 3 weeks to develop/print/scan/load up, followed by 3 weeks to vote;
So if we start now..
Take your "curves" picture from 7 November to 30 November.
Process and post them by Christmas Eve, 24 December.
Vote from Christmas Day 25 December to 13 January.
The rules of the challenge are now on the front page of the Forum, but basically you must use a screw thread Leica camera, anything from a UR (replica) through a 1a to a 111g. The lens does not have to have come out of the Wetzlar workshop, but I think it would be nice if both body and lens came off the workbench before 1936 so that you could imagine that Barnack himself had picked them up to check them before they were packed up and sent out.

What adapters can be reliably used on the M10 for e.g. a classic LTM Elmar 50 mm in your experience?
In older threads (pre M10), the three most widely recommended were
- Original Leitz (50mm seems to be a bit scarce on the market)
- CameraQuest/ Rayqual (seem unavailable in Europe)
The M10 has been reported to be more finicky with regard to 6 bit coding. Is it also more of a diva with regard to adapters?
I have read the caveats about collapsing; now I am looking out for an adapter...
