Please post some Noctilux F1 Shots

Recommended Posts

first one is horribly soft/non-focused

not a good picture at all imo

 

Richard, you may benefit from doing a little research on the virtues of the Noctilux. That first pic is an illustration of what is so attractive to the afficianados. VERY selective focus at f1.0. Not everyones cup of tea of course, but quite legitimate, and skilful when accomplished. It is a great way to tidy up otherwise messy pics for example.

OK, here's a Noctilux at f1.0 very early in the morning in Vegas at Bellagio, in the butterfly exhibit.

 

I love the Noctilux and have ordered one.

 

This is also one of the creepiest pix I've ever shot, though I didn't see the creep factor till I actually got it processed on the computer. IOW, the Nocti sees stuff I don't, sometimes, but that's f1,0

 

ISO 640 M8 (and, with f1.0, 1/2000 s... which is wild in that light!)

That's a great shot Jamie. It reminds me of one I did last year, with the same surprise content, seen after processing. I will post some later. Got some 16"x20" to process right now.

My two cents:

Another woman, a different Bahnhof:

 

 

The lights in my building's staircase

 

 

My hang-out

More... sorry, M8 + Noctilux has really become the foundation of my photography. But I have a long way to go till I shoot like Tommy. Wow dude, you must be the first person I have ever added on Flickr.

 

Another one from "my" bar

 

 

My wife, at dinner

 

 

The last man in LA without a mobile phone

A great series Iron. The M8 + Noct. is my addiction as well. No known cure.... fortunately.

Carstenw,

 

You have a beautiful daughter (?) and a great lens. I know many painters who would rush out to get both the M8 and ask to lend your daughter as well... ;-)

Thanks Thorsten, but both girl and lens are borrowed. My own Noctilux comes in late fall, and my own daughter, well who knows

I take care of this one twice a week. She is great fun and very active.

Damn! there are some of us who are waiting.......and waiting.......and still waiting for this lens to be delivered. Looking at some of the images is not making this wait easy:mad:. Thanks a bunch guys:p , I had this whole issue put to the back of my mind and you've just gone and put the desire back in there.

.

 

Iorn, there are some lovely examples of the creative use of this lens, complements to you. As for the rest of you.... I can't take much more of this and I'm putting you on my ignore list, LOL

Just for kick - this is another image taken with an M6 to show the flare resistance of this lens even at f/1.0. The focus point is her left eye. The film used is lowly Kodak Gold 200, processed by Costco in an hour and transferred onto a CD as JPG images. Costco even managed to scratch the negative from the beginning until the end of the roll

Scammers troll eBay looking for high price items that are attractive to punters. It used to happen with digital backs and Canon 1Ds IIs as well. Some of these folks have a mass upload of rogue auctions that they'll upload into a hijacked eBayaccount, even though they know they may only be online for a few hours before discovery. It only takes one sucker going for a Nocti at $1200 or a Plasma TV or ... sending cash via Western Union to make it worthwhile. There are unfortunately a lot of gullable people out there.

 

This thread is the equivalent to lens lust pornography ... it's a good job I don't have a pile of cash tucked down the back of the sofa at the moment otherwise this viral marketing for Leica would have me spending more serious $$$$ on a Nocti!

Wow, Tim. That second portrait, the one of the girl in the blue singlet - just knocked me off my feet. Well done all three of you: Girl, Tim , Noctilux!
