Re: What is the Leica M buzz?

I agree with you Ian, Leica M cameras weight a brick and the operation when compared to most decent cameras now are considered very slow and could easily miss great moments. One thing to make the...

Re: Pressure on Lowepro to change competition rules won't abate

This is all done in the name of greed and capitalism, thank god not everyone behaves this way. The simplest is not to enter their competition or to buy any of their products, I was a Lowepro product...

Re: Your thoughts on this one

I have this game and I knew the image is computer generated. You're right about it is not 'real'. In fact nothing IS!!! Everything we 'see' are actually a self projection within our 'heads', the...

Re: Light meters does anybody use them any more

Last year, that's when I took my 5x4 field camera out with the scan back, although I could just use the software on the computer, but I did use the spot meter to check the brightness range.

Re: Light meters does anybody use them any more

I still up my Pentax Digital Spot meter to check background evenness for fine art scanning work, as scanbacks still requires continuous lighting.

Re: Leica M9

Leica M9
