Fine Art Landscape Photography with the Leica M10 - Review

Recommended Posts

Vieri, 

Thank you for your article, it has help me to clarify many doubts in my mind. I really appreciate your time and the comparison. If you do not mind would you share in greater detail your decision to stop working with the S (Type 007). I was under the impression a medium format camera would be a better choice for fine art land scape photography versus an SL or M10 because the dynamic range, the size of the files and the ability to bigger prints. The 2 lenses I was drawn to the S system where the 120 TS APO and 24mm. Any thoughts I will greatly appreciate. 

Grazie

You're about one year and seven months late, Grazie.

In the meantime, Vieri has indeed moved to MF, but to the X1D (and now X1Dii).  The S system didn’t suit his style with long exposure limitations, etc.

Indeed I moved to the X1D, and now X1D II, about one year ago. The S (Typ 007), which I had for about 6 months, didn't suit my work style at all - as Jeff said, long exposures limitation were impossible to live with, just to mention one thing - but I long believed that medium format was the way to go to improve on image quality after the SL.When I made that decision, the X1D system was finally mature (FW-wise) and the 21mm was released, and among all possible MF choices I decided to go for the X1D (please see my blog's Hasseblad's reviews, found here: https://www.vieribottazzini.com/tag/hasselblad, if you are interested). Please note that I do landscape only, no other kind of photography, and for that IMHO the X1D (now II) is just the best tool for the job, with the best compromise of features. If you also do other kind of photography, or if you do a different kind of landscape than I do, of course your choice of gear can be different.

Hope this helps! Best regards,

Vieri

Whats the difference between fine art landscape photography and landscape photography?

Is it simply the same but better?

More editing?

What happens if a landscape photographer produces better pictures than a fine art landscape photographer?

Anyway the pics are nice.

Well if the photographer calls it 'fine art' it almost certainly isn't, if other people call it 'fine art' you've walked into a conference of museum directors who would know the difference.

Fine Art has become an abused term to describe something that diverges from a strictly informative documentary shot called 'Grand Canyon' in which the photographer matches the postcard from the gift shop. The self appointed 'fine art' photographer includes a further element of photographic technique featuring perhaps a time exposure of clouds above the Grand Canyon, to create a work called 'Grand Canyon with clouds'. It's not fine art, it's decorative art, hence the number of posts about 'how big can I print', it's 'for filling wall space art', it's 'I know a bit about cameras art', etc.

Your actual fine art photographer ploughs a lonely furrow often working with ideas as much as pressing the shutter and producing a coherent body of work that holds together unfazed by exploring more and more megapixels or the bokeh magic of the latest Leica lens.

      I have for sale a leica m10 in perfect functional and cosmetic condition,with 2 batteries,boxes and all accesories.
      Just back from a full check and sensor cleaning at Wetzlar.
      It has approx.3500 shutter clicks.

      This is an old-ish (5 months) review, but IMHO it is worth reading if you are on the fence with regard to purchasing the M10 Monochrom.
      This camera costs a lot of money, but make no mistake:  There is no other camera even remotely like it being made anywhere in the world.
       
       
      Hands-On Review of the Incredible Leica M10 Monochrom

      Hallo liebe Forumsmitglieder, 
       
      ich bin seit einigen Wochen im Leica M Fieber und beschäftige mich mit dem Thema rund um das M-System ziemlich intensiv. 
      Aktuell nutze ich eine Canon EOS 5D III, welche ich auch weiterhin als "Arbeitstier" behalte. 
      Vor einigen Tagen habe ich mir für einige Stunden die Leica M-P 240 mit dem 35mm Summilux ausgeliehen, was meiner Begeisterung für das M-System keinen Abbruch getan hat, im Gegenteil. 😊
       
      Nun stellt sich mir die Frage, wie mein Einstieg in die Leica Welt genau aussehen soll.
      Meine Gedanken bzw. Fragen:
      1. Leica M10 oder M-P 240?
      Irgendwie kann ich mich nicht mit dem Gedanken anfreunden eine gebrauchte Leica von einem nicht autorisierten Händler (ohne Garantie) zu kaufen. Der Leica Store bietet aktuell die M-P 240 als Demomodell für 4490€ an. Das Demomodell hatte ich ausprobiert und mir genauer angeschaut, ich konnte keine Abnutzungserscheinungen feststellen. Habt ihr Erfahrungen mit den Demomodellen, könnt ihr die empfehlen?
      Leider konnte ich die M10 noch nicht ausprobieren, was ich aber in den nächsten Tagen noch machen werde.
      Nachdem der Vergleich schon öfter angestellt wurde (M10: leisere Aufnahme, dünner, etwas leichter, besser bei High-ISO, etwas besserer Messsucher vs M-P 240: längere Akkulaufzeit, Videofunktion, bei "normalem Licht" keine merklichen Unterschiede zur M10) jedoch - soweit mir bekannt - entweder über ein Upgrade von der M(-P) 240 zur M10 oder die Preisdifferenz zwischen einer gebrauchten M 240 (deutlich unter 4000€ bzw. 3000€) und einer neuen M10 diskutiert wurde, wollte ich euch fragen, ob ihr für den aufgerufen Preis von 4490€ für eine (fast) neue M-P 240 doch lieber direkt die M10 nehmen würdet? 
      Womit ich auch schon zum zweiten Punkt meiner Überlegungen komme:
       
      2. Leica Linse oder Voigtländer Linse?
      Auch wenn mich das 35mm Summilux extrem beeindruckt hat, tendiere ich - auch budgetbedingt - zum aktuellen 35mm Summicron oder zum Voigtländer 35mm 2.0 Ultron.
      Ich werde in den kommenden Tagen die beiden genannten Linsen nochmal persönlich ausprobieren, aber vielleicht könnt ihr mir euere Erfahrungen mit auf den Weg geben bzw. eure Einschätzungen? Wahrscheinlich landet man am Ende sowieso bei den Leica Linsen, vielleicht sollte man direkt damit einsteigen? 😊
      Die M-P 240 (Demomodell) plus das aktuelle 35mm Summicron bewegen sich preislich bei 7490€, die M10 (komplett neu) mit dem Voigtländer 35mm f2 Ultron bei 7600€. Oder die M10 in Kombination mit einem gebrauchten, älterem Summicron? Ich weiß, da spielt natürlich viel persönliche Präferenz mit rein, aber ich würde trotzdem gerne eure Meinungen dazu hören. 😊
      Mehr als 8000€ will ich nicht ausgeben. 
       
      Die WLAN Konnektivität der M10 finde ich auch recht interessant, jedoch habe ich hier im Forum auch öfter gelesen, dass das nicht so reibungslos funktioniert, deswegen sehe ich das nicht als klaren Vorteil? 
      Oder sollte ich auf die M10-R warten und anschließend auf eine M10 als Demomodell spekulieren? 
       
      Freue mich über euer Feedback! 😊
       
      Viele Grüße
      Tobi

      I escaped into the Hampshire countryside yesterday for the first time since lockdown started, and found this beautiful scene in the South Downs National Park. Hope you like it!

      Hi,
      Anyone know where can I buy a Wotancraft Ryker  Small Brown in Europe? I have been able to find an online shop in Netherlands but they do not have stock. And, I am trying to avoid to import due to the taxes and customs. Many Thanks
