A dog day…

It was a dog day… in a good way! Lots of pooches out in the streets, while walking & shooting around the city with a Leica student for a whole day. All in all a very rewarding experience.

Less gear, more skills

L1000632

I read a post today on Mail Chimp’s blog and how they successfully use the php programming language for their rapidly growing e-mail enterprise, and the comments quickly got out of hand, bashing their tools of choice to the tune of “this language is better than…” “you should…” and to top it all off, someone […]


Moto X interactive print ad

_MG_8929

I came across this interactive Moto X print ad in this month’s Wired magazine… there seems to be a light panel behind the phone’s image and individual colors can be turned on by pressing the correlating colored buttons at the bottom. very cool! craziness! This thing is powered by 4 CR2025 batteries, has a multi-color […]


Multi Tasking

The Leica M240 is back from the shop and as good as new – new rangefinder, new top plate… Despite the cameras heft, I love the responsiveness, the fast shutter and high ISO quality compared to the M9P I have been using for the past few weeks. The M240′s DNGs convert nicely to black-and-white and […]

New York Lottery

color street photography by Markus Hartel, New York City

I really like the M9P that I received from Leica on loan, while the M 240 is in the shop for a rangefinder replacement… The M9P’s chrome finish feels indestructable and is very nice -just like the classic Leicas-, and the colors have that richness that only a CCD sensor can produce, the camera also […]

Seen on Jackson Ave.

black-and-white street photography by Markus Hartel, New York City

I noticed this woman, sitting back in her cluttered entrance, smoking a cigarette and as I walked by, I figured I’d need a flash for fill into the dark building. She probably noticed me and as I went on to plug in the wireless trigger, powered on the flash and turned around to take my […]


Exit

black-and-white street photography by Markus Hartel, New York City

Manufacturer’s goal for years has been higher megapixels and cleaner images, hence increased sales… I oftentimes wonder if “too clean” is good a good metric at all. Things we find in nature all have texture, things we touch have a certain feel to them and sometimes I would go through my archives and marvel at […]

New York street photography by Markus Hartel

Leica M Typ 240 firmware update 2.0.0.11 brings us an improvement in white balance, which now seems to be more neutral than before. Auto ISO in manual mode is still stuck at the latest used ISO (i.e. doesn’t work) and EV override is still stuck on the impossible to use two-button setting. Ergonomically this is […]

Jimmy rigged Leica M Typ 240 handgrip

Leica M240 jimmy rigged hand grip

Grips for the M240 are not available yet and the thumbs up is not an option for me, as I’m using the hotshoe for a flash/wireless trigger all the time… it struck me, that the film M has a center tripod mount as well and that the hand grip may fit with a few modifications… […]


Chinatown textures

Chinatown textures, black and white street photography by Markus Hartel, NYC

Comparing the M Typ 240 to the Leica Monochrome, the MM does indeed have more detail in certain areas, but the 240 gives me a larger file and a little more wiggle room for tonal tweaks and I don’t think that anyone would see the difference in prints smaller than 40″… The Leica Monochrome seemed […]
