Urgent planning considerations for my new CL

Recommended Posts

 

I'm so excited at the news of this new camera. For many years I was using a Leica/Minolta CL and I loved the small format of the camera.
 
However, before I can even think of buying one, I have to ask the following questions: –
 
What bag should I get for my new Leica CL? - Bag for life, 10p at your nearest supermarket
 
What case should I get my new Leica CL? - no need if you get a bag for life, see above
 
What strap should I get my new Leica CL? - boot lace, various colours available, cheap and effective. Double knot for extra security. Usually come in packs of 2.
 
And also, I shall soon be going on holiday to Bourton on the Water, do think I should take it with me? - No, in case you drop it in the water. Buy an X-U for that.

No probs. Hang in there it will be forthcoming. In my experience the Cotswolds are survivable without a Thumbs up - just.

 

It really depends on whether you're hitch-hiking. If so, you'll definitely need a thumbs-up.

I ordered one about 20 mins ago, first in the queue - what should I wear when I pick it up from the shop??? 

 

Is that a bag, or a camera?

All of this advice is extremely helpful – but I wonder now whether I shouldn't wait until the release of the special titanium edition.

 

What does anybody think?

Blimey, you're dead right.  This is getting complicated.

 

When do you think that the monochrom edition will come out?

CL monochrome? Indefinitely forward in time, I would think....

The CL2 will have IBIS, the EVF from the SL, full frame sensor, will be thinner than the CL, AND will have a phone built in!

I have been told by informed sources that, indeed, Leica is already considering a CL2 that besides your suggestions, it will also open your garage door and change channels on your TV.

The built-in Tardis will come in handy for fitting all that in your pocket.

Now hang on. This is meant to be a serious thread about serious issues but now this is becoming positively silly.

Is it silly enough if I wait for CL-D, the one without LCD screen like M-D ?

After that, a tempting must have is the same thing in monochrom "limited platina" CL-monochrom for the x anniversary of Dr. Mandler

The first thing that strikes me about your post is to say _don’t_ go to Bourton on the Water. Or at least I wouldn’t plan to spend a lot of time there. It struck me a place that has become a victim of its own beauty. It’s so full of gawking tourists and touristy shops that a lot of places in the Cotswolds well worth your photographic attention.

Just stay away from the water in case the CL without thumb slips in.

That sounds like my iPhon - no wait, a Huawei with a new viewfinder clipped on.

For the Lake District you will need the Beatrix Potter edition CL, which comes with a Jemima Puddle-Duck waterproof housing.

But you are forgetting how the sight of a red dotted CL would lift the tone of the place.
