#62 Meet my M4

Meet my ”new” camera – a 1968 Leica M4. But – why, you may ask. Who buys a more than 50 years old overpriced analogue camera? No LCD screen, no live view, no video , no auto focus – not even a light meter.  Well – I do. And I will try and explain why….

#61 What camera should I buy?

Visby – Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8 A question I get asked quite often is ”which camera should I buy [or bring], for my trip to…”. The question is almost always asked by persons who are not very much into photography, but they are old enough to think that they need a camera (my kids…

#60 Make Pictures

Madrid – Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8 In my last two posts I wrote about a trip to Paris with the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and a Leica M6. As I compared the results from the two cameras it struck me how different I used them. The X-Pro2 was a camera for documenting what we did on…

#59 Paris – from the X-Pro2

The Metro station As I looked through the more than 300 X-Pro2 pictures that I kept from the trip to Paris, I realized that there were not many that I would say were good pictures. The technical quality was of course good in most of them – the X-Pro2 is a great camera – but…

#58 Paris – from a Leica M6TTL

Champs Elysee Back in 2017 I was  in Paris with my family, for a short vacation.  I had recently bought my first Leica – the M6TTL – and two Zeiss lenses. My main digital camera back then was the Fujifilm X-Pro2. I brought both cameras on the trip to Paris. I shot 3 rolls of…

#57 Mist

Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8 The other day I was driving through a beautiful Swedish autumn scenery. The mist was hanging in the tree tops and the wind was almost none. I was on my way to a work appointment, but I just had to stop and shoot some pictures. Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8…

#56 Vienna and the Leica

A trip to Vienna the months before Christmas is like going to the mother of all Christmas markets. The inner city is full of small stands full of handcrafted items, punch and glühwein. In the evening the whole city is lit up of Christmas decorations, and full of people just enjoying them selves. Leica M240…

#55 Updated camera gear for sports

Football with the X-T2 and 55-200 zoom My kids are notourious sports freaks – I have written about this before. I find my self watching at least one game of football or floorball every weekend and of course I always bring my camera. It can be a challenge to be creative when you shoot sports. It…

#54 More photography – less photos

Stockholm – Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8 The past few years of shooting with the Leica M system has left me thinking about how the number of pictures taken, is related to the ”fun factor”. The first half of my photography life was about analogue film cameras, the second was the digital age. I estimate…
