    Nearing Autumn

    First frost last night. Not a killing hard frost, not yet. But the colors are changing and the geese form up in their Vs to head further south.

    Nikon Fun with a 45/2.8 AI P

    Have a new lens to work out and went out to do so. Hint of cool in the air, frost warning for tonight, the birches are mostly changed already and the maples have begun.

    Leica Digital CL with adapted lenses?

    What I really want, I guess is a digital Barnack and the CL seemed like an actual Leica branded way to do it, perhaps better than the E-PL1 I have now for that purpose. It looks like this isn't really the best way to approach it. So, the search continues ... APS-C, built in VF, cheap and higher...

    Leica Digital CL with adapted lenses?

    I have a soft spot for screw mount Leica lenses so that's my main driver.

    Leica Digital CL with adapted lenses?

    I was pondering today if the digial CL would work well with old LTM lenses via stacked adaptors? LTM -> M -> L ? Anyone tried this? I'm still trying to find a digital equal to my old IIIf and Summitar. I love my Nikons but miss a certain something about Leica.

    Found this earlier tonight...

    It came up at a different website, for a different reason. But still, I have a tiny handful of photos that I know exactly where and when they were made and with which cameras and lenses. They are the exceptions as most blur into the nothingness of memory. But those ones I do? Thank you, god...

    Nikon Just Df things, seen by M shooter

    HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAH I'm a young Nikon shooter and _I_ can give you an off the cuff list of at least 10 "Must Haves". Those will be the same as you'd hear BrianS tell you to buy. Then I'll tell you the OTHER 10 "Must Haves" as far as I am concerned and the odds are none of them will be on his...

    Afternoon drive home

    More Northern Wisconsin imagery. Coming back from an errand, I took the long way home. I dearly love the Nikkor O 35/2 but I think I need a lens hood this time of day... Thanks for looking!

    We have a stuffed bear in our lobby. I often joke that she’s our security guard. Well, we have to keep her healthy too! But, she just can't seem to follow the directions as you’ll notice her nose…

    A Drive Through the Woods - Photographs of Northern Wisconsin.

    Been crazy busy with work at the hotel and that left me rather exhausted. After feeling really poorly the night before, I got some rest and found a better day. I took a nice long drive down a bunch of fire roads in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. Here’s a few images from a few hours...

    Single In Single in July (SiJy) 2020 - day 5

    I left for work early because I was hot and there was air conditioning there. I also planned to do some early morning shooting today out the back door but that didn't happen. OTOH, on the way to work I got a bit of practical testing of just how far after sundown I can get good images with my...

    The Single Most Important Issue in Modern Photography

    I have never owned a camera with a moving screen. I wonder if the "fully articulated" ones are actually articulated enough to flip them around to hide the display so I wouldn't have to look at them? I'd actually prefer no screen except for menus and settings - I almost never view images on...

    Leica Showcase KMZ 3.5cm F2.8 Jupiter-12 in LTM

    Nice. I've had a couple of good J-12's over the years. The best was a mid 50's one for Kiev (gee, surprise there!) but I had good LTM ones too. I should budget one in for my Canon 7 someday (I had a black one that fit in the past).

    Been cray-cray busy last few days. Went out to breakfast for the first time since Corona. Crowded and no masking. All it would take up here in northern Wisconsin is a single Corona Mary and we'd be [expletive deleted].

    I kept waiting for the second generation of the Pen F to come out so that the first gen would drop in price to a level I could afford. I finally got tired of waiting and shifted to Nikon.

    News Olympus Sells Imaging Division

    The problem I had in the end with Olympus was cost/performance. I had a nice Pen E-P3 and some good lenses but they were long in the tooth and the Pen F I wanted was way too much money. In the end, last fall, I sold almost all of my m4/3 kit (one body for adapted LTM lenses left) and bought a...

    Ordered the last of the Nikkor Manual Focus lenses I've been wanting - an AI Converted Nikkor N 24/2.8 that will be a nice 35 eq on my D7100. Just trying to decide if I want to stay with Capture One Express or pay for the Pro version and then, rent or own? Hmm...

    I have certain places, I call them "usual suspects" from Casablanca, that I photograph often. I sometimes wonder what it would be like to print all of the images of this barn and make a show of just them? The cows, on the other hand, prefer the nice fresh grass while the years first crop of hay...

    Yes, it's a manual focus lens (Leica thread mount from the Former Soviet Union.) I use f16 & hyperfocal focus to keep from going insane on that tiny screen. I may have to buy another VF3 just for it :doh:

    Missed a couple of days but got a chance to try out the Industar 22 on my Olympus E-PL1. My old VF3 has bitten the dust so I have to use the back screen chimping style & I really don't like that. I do, however, like the rendition of this little 50/3.5 lens. You can almost tell there are a huge...
