  1. Why 50mm and a Leica M3?

    2021-02-01 12:36:12 UTC

    … and why not 35mm on an M2, given that’s my preferred focal length? I was using film long before the digital age and continue to use it occasionally alongside digital, it’s not a novelty. Most of the time I feel digital is “better” at everything measurable; speed, resolution, cost.…

  2. Leica M3 - The best film rangefinder for a 50mm lens

    2019-09-24 15:57:32 UTC

    By way of history, I have had a few Leica cameras over the last 20 years, all have been film with the exception of my Leica X typ113. My first Leica was a IIIc, purchased mostly out of curiosity, which I used for a little while with a similarly aged…

  3. Film vs. Digital Revisited - Opposites Attract

    2019-06-20 16:29:41 UTC

    For my street photography, I predominantly use an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II - alongside this but less frequently, I use a 1958 Leica M3 - for me these are close to being the best cameras for the way I take pictures - but they couldn’t be more different Olympus…

    2018-05-11 20:01:29 UTC

    A number of kit zooms start at around the 28mm mark - or “full frame equivalent” focal length, some start a bit wider, but the focus of this article is to look at some of the attractions of going out specifically with a super-wide, 24mm or wider for “normal” people…

  5. Reflecting on Film Photography

    2017-08-25 16:54:00 UTC

    The Waiting - I recently purchased a couple of rolls of Ilford HP5+ film for my “well rested” Nikon FE, no real reason or thinking behind it, just something I have enjoyed every so often since moving to digital. The first roll is now off for developing, previously I would…

  6. Sky Arts’ Master of Photography Series 2

    2017-05-26 12:58:36 UTC

    My thoughts - Travel, Candids and Controversy Last night saw the first episode of the second series of Master of Photography on Sky Arts. The series follows Sky Arts’ competition to find the “Master of Photography” through eight episodes, each presenting a different challenge to the participants, who have been…

  7. Myopia, LCD screens and Leica X 113

    2017-05-20 23:10:44 UTC

    The Leica X series of cameras seems to be on the way out, whilst the T range may have some future, the sightly oddball X-U now remains the sole member of this line of APS-C sensor equipped fixed lens cameras. The closest Leica replacement is the Q, albeit at more…
