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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
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 […]

Leica M Typ 240 firmware update 188.8.131.52 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 […]

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… […]
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 […]

I initially thought, the Fujifilm X-Pro1 would be a great supplement to my aging M9, but as it turns out, the Fuji just doesn’t suit my shooting style… Image quality is very good and it smokes the M9 in the high ISO department (where I was most unhappy with the Leica M9, and I shoot […]

Old negative – The sleeve is marked Delta 3200 @1600 Diafine – DON’T EVER DO THIS AGAIN!!! I never liked Ilford Delta to begin with and I obviously developed this roll in Diafine for testing (who the F knows what I was thinking)… this combination has the nastiest grain texture I have ever seen, combined […]
