    Leica Showcase Voigtlander 50/1.5 Nokton M Aspherical

    A wonderful event -- there was light, right there on the sky. The aperture ring found use once again.

    Trust me - this subject, it's a recurring battle that has pestered me for a very long time now. The internal war is not going to be won by any one side but I wish it happened some day. My current plan seems to keep accumulating gear on both sides as to mutually assure (financial) destruction if...

    Something made me come back at this shot of Suomenlinna, taken in October. Somehow I remembered the picture having a good overall "shape". When I first saw the pic on my revisitation, it had somewhat ugly colorful elements. Turning it to B/W didn't help that much. Then I turned to the "film...

    Shooting my dear Leica after a prolonged pause. The very first shot is just to check exposure and it's purposefully containing extra elements and stuff. But after the "lesser" (sorry) platforms this rendering is just at a class of its own... This is heavily cropped so maybe I should also...

    It is a sound idea. But I came from that place -- shot a Leica Q and the Olympus PEN-F on the side. Life was good. It was extremely good in fact. Only needed two lenses for PEN-F to complement Q and my entire camera-lens selection fit in my EDC. But humans like myself like to ruin good things...

    Currently it's the Fuji 16/1.4 "Sweet Sixteen" that I desire the most. I've been shooting Fuji over the weekend and it's been a week since I shot Leica M last. So my financial inner me is raising hopes about maybe coming to senses and downgrading to Fuji from Leica. This means I would complete...

    This is the first time in a long while in my life that snowy winter is not guaranteed. Where I used to live, there's currently a big fat bank of snow. Here, some 250 miles down south by the sea, this is the current level.

    Feeling like a guru because suddenly I'm able to repro the tones of Fuji JPEGs in Darktable from the raw files. This was an impossible mission for me 2 years back! (Note that Darktable certainly doesn't have Fuji's support for film simulations so whatever you do, you do on your own.)

    Black & White, monotone and sepia

    Given an exercise to take a photo about something that people won't normally notice. Time frame: 75 minutes including lunch so it's an enormous pressure. :) I actually gave up on everything and just headed to lunch and have coffee. There it was that I noticed a weirdly placed row of shoes in a...

    If cameras are ISO-invariant these days...

    Many models these days are visibly ISO-invariant, meaning that you can take a picture at 1/800 sec ISO 800 or take the same picture at 1/800 sec ISO 100 and push 3 stops at post processing, getting the same noise levels and the same picture. My question: when are we going to see the first...

    Which mount to speed boost?

    Humm. Metabones didn't list a Nikon F to Fuji X adapter on their site, hence I didn't list it. What the heck is G mount anyway. :) Turns out it's for the "apertureless" lens generation. I'll edit the poll. (Can't edit existing poll options but I added a red remark.) Yes indeed my question or...

    Which mount to speed boost?

    Say you didn't have any foreign lenses or adapters for your APS-C body. You want to invest in one good speed-boosted 0.71x adapter. Is there any particular direction you'd take? Why? Note: Nikon G covers all Nikon F lenses.

    Thanks René. I walked this street the other night and thought to myself, there's immense potential for wide-angle photography. Of course my UWA isn't f/1.4 so it wasn't immediately that I returned to the scene. Almost took a collapsible tripod with me but decided against it. These turned just...

    Today I took my Fuji with the 50/2 to accompany the FL of my Leica and 21/3.5. Initially I just shot Leica because that's what I know. :D When the light dropped enough so that my Leica just couldn't do anymore, I switched to Fuji. It was dark, I wasn't hunting anything special, I placed the Fuji...

    Lost some of my sidecar files. Remember to backup!

    Probably due to a software bug, a random sample of my sidecar files got corrupted. Luckily not the most biggest of problems out there, but sometimes some files really needed sweat and tears to get where they need to be. My sidecar files get backed up with the raw files but this is where I made...
