    Leica Is my rangefinder off?

    Focus on a single small dot rather than a line. If you always get 2 images of the dot, even at the best focus, your vertical alignment is probably off. And if it is off, focusing on a vertical line probably won't let you know it. Good luck.

    Leica SWC with 220 film

    Very nice shots. The SWC is such a beautiful camera with a superb lens. It was my favorite when I was shooting film. ps, where's the vignetting in the last photo coming from? I don't recall seeing any when I was using mine. But then I probably always stopped down at least a stop or two, if...

    Leica What's your favorite lens?

    50mm lux asph for best combination of useful field of view, image quality and particularly beautiful bokeh. But for portability 35mm summicron v4 (v4 just happens to be what I have but any version would be great).

    Leica My "Atomic" 3D Camera is now in Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola

    Well, that history has already been written and denying it won't change it. I find the whole story incredibly interesting -- the photographic innovation part, not the tragic loss of life -- and I'd really like to know more. Winnek sounds like a fascinating character.

    Leica My "Atomic" 3D Camera is now in Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola

    I wonder where the information came from. If Winnek's son was referring to documentation created by his dad, that source is probably historically significant and should be preserved before it is lost or destroyed both to establish the provenance of your camera and for general historical principles.

    Leica My "Atomic" 3D Camera is now in Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola

    Fascinating. It would be historically important if the original footage taken by this camera could be found and made available to the public. If I understand correctly, your camera was used on reconnaissance flights, including one by the Enola Gay over Hiroshima prior to the bombing and then...

    Nice Raid. What's the story of your association with this camera?

    The M9 and M240 are capable of stunning photos in the right hands.

    Leica Outside Joe Patti's Seafood Store (Pensacola)

    Robin, I like the golden glow and languid feel of Raid's shots. Pensacola is a few hours from New Orleans but the rozos and the general feeling of the scenes are very similar to what we have in some areas around here.

    Leica Outside Joe Patti's Seafood Store (Pensacola)

    There's something nice and reassuring about old things, including lenses. Doesn't Joe Patti's have stone crabs? I think I'd have to pop inside after my evening photo session and scarf down a few.

    Leica Leica 35mm f/1.4 Summilux pre-ASPH

    Last one I think. Mixed daylight and incandescent here was a little problematic. _DSC1267 by brusbybrusby, on Flickr
