#207 The Leica M6 is back in production

I bought my first Leica M in august 2016 – a silver Leica M6 TTL. That small camera opened up a new world to me. It was a time when I had grown tired of photography. It was all just point and shoot – not the process that photography once was. The M6 brought that…

#196 Street with a 21mm lens

A while ago I bought a 21mm lens (as mentioned before in recent posts). At first I was bothered by the fact that the rangefinder only supports lenses down to 28mm. Any wider than that requiers an external viewfinder – optical or digital. If you wear glasses like me, anything wider than 50mm in fact…

#195 Shooting in the evening

Taking a walk in the evening as the sun sets, with my Leica M. The Zeiss 2/35 is mounted. Really pleased with the decision to go back to Zeiss, by the way. The results are great. Sharp, nice colors, no flare and great handling. The daylight fades away and the moon is rising. Perhaps one…

#174 Taking my M out

I recently found a good price for a Zeiss 2,8/21mm for my Leica M camera. Yesterday I tried it out in a nearby forest. I haven’t used my M-cameras so much for outdoor or landscape photography before. Often I take my Fujis instead, as I go out for a hike or something like that. That…

#171 Going back to Zeiss

I have done the unthinkable. I have sold my Leica lenses and gone back to Zeiss again. When I bought my first Leica back in 2016 I initially used Voigtländer lenses and after a while I settled in for two Zeiss lenses; the 2,8/35 Biogon and the 2/50 Planar. These two lenses were great. They…

#167 Is the Leica M11 the last real M?

Just to sort things out first. I love Leica M cameras (but I am not an expert on Leica M:s – I only express my opinions) – that is pretty obvious if you have read this blog before. I love the process of taking pictures. For me it is not about getting a technically perfect…

#166 Why I use Leicas

I have written about this topic before in different posts. Recently I have watched a lot of videos about cameras and listened to other photographers views and ideas. I have done so instead of taking pictures my self. Sadly. But I hope this will change as the spring, and with it the light, returns to…

#159 A New Hope

As you may have heard before on this blog, I love black and white photography. When I go out to shoot black and white pictures I find my self in a special “black-and-white-mode” – I see the world in a gray scale instead of in color. The black and white world is different from the…

#153 I am keeping my M4

I have a kind of love and hate relationship with analogue photography. I constantly find myself going between thinking of selling my Leica M4 and feeling a sense of relieve as I use it. I have sold two Leica M6:s after decisions that were made to fast. The one I regret selling the most was…

#149 One camera and one lens – Part 2

A while ago I wrote a post about traveling with just one camera and one lens (read the post here). My conclusion was that I would be just as happy with just a camera and a 35mm lens – instead of bringing a heavy bag with multiple lenses and cameras. Did I practice this as…

#147 The final verdict of the Leica M-D 262

If you read my last post, you know that I was thinking about if the Leica M-D 262 was the camera for me or not. I had this idea that a digital camera without a rear LCD would be the ultimate shooting experience. When I saw one for sale, I decided to try it out….

#146 A two month review of my Leica M-D 262

It is almost two months since I bought my Leica M-D, and I felt that it was time for a short text about my thought of it so far. If you don’t know what’s so special with a Leica M-D 262 here is a short summary: • A full frame, digital rangefinder camera with a…
