    Wow, this thread is like the energizer bunny.....

    Anyway, times are tough, no doubt about it. I asked my street brother here for a shot, and he said, "not my face brother, take the hand, look at the cuts and blood. I play this thing 12 hours a day". I took one image and dropped him five bucks. Shot wide open to separate the hand.

    That's an awesome photo!

    How do you like your M7? Does the AE work well in low light?

    Scott, lloyd, cheers for the feedback. Enjoyed your images immensely as well Scott. What film/developer/scanner are you using?

    Concerning the M7, LOVE IT. Best damn analogue camera I have ever owned. In fact, I'm thinking of flipping one of my M8's for a second M7 so I can shoot B&W in one and chrome film in the other. Man does the Leica glass ever do chrome film justice. So much detail, it is like 645 quality.

    So far, no problem with low light metering. If the scene looks tricky, I'll pull out my Sekonic 1-degree spot meter should time allow. But so far, the meter is extremely accurate....surprisingly, accurate enough to shoot chrome film.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    The meter in the M7 is fantastic (so is the one in the MP)...few cameras work so consistently and precisely. The nice thing about center weighted is that once you work with it awhile, you always know what you are going to get...there is no mystery about what it is using to calculate exposure like there is in matrix metering.

    Yep, no truer words have been spoken. I was not getting results like I am from the M7 with either my previous F5 matrix metering or EOS 1v E-TTL. Amazing, a white painted dot.....the most elegant solutions are often the simplest.

    Leica's can do color? Oooh, this could get interesting!

    Nope, I checked with a psychic. After I woke her up, all she could see in my future was fuzzy B&W

    Helen, that shot with the Canon is amazing. The OOF rendition and color harmony is just incredible. Did you deliberately throw this OOF, or just not focus fast enough?

    The Zeiss 25mm is superbly good, particularly on film. There really isn't anything wrong with it, but it is a rather high contrast lens.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    Nice series Scott! I really like the first one of the reflections and the second to last one of the dogs...

    Here are a few from my friend's concert. It was a 75 summilux on Neopan 1600 in rodinal...grain galore. Truth be told, I was lazy and developing other stuff at the same time...I should haved waited and done it in a speed-increasing developer. The resulting negs have loads of grain (though nice grain), but they are quite underexposed. I should have taken a better reading...the lamp behind him tricked the meter and made me underexpose them.









    His music is very quiet and sad, so there is not much movement going on...

    Stuart,
    I love the grain and the exposure, especially in the last one.

    How do you like the Neopan 1600? I've been using Neopan 400 rated @ 1600 in Xtol and have been pretty happy with the results, but have never compared it to the true 1600 flavor.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    Thanks Scott -- Neopan 1600 is a lovely film. I have not compared it to pushed Neopan 400, but frankly, I have not met a Fuji black and white film that I don't like. Acros and the Neopans are the most beautiful black and white films I have used. But I think Neopan 1600 in Xtol is beautiful and has a much smoother, though still nicely grainy, look.

    Here are some examples of it in Xtol. Grain is really dictated by exposure. If you give it a proper exposure, grain will be unobtrusive, if you underexpose, the grain will really show up. Still with a Leica...



    In this one you can really see how the grain becomes visible in the underexposed areas...this may partly be a function of the scanner, though I am not sure.

    I found this in some Scala slides, taken with my old M6 and I think the 90AA. I don't have a very good scanner right now so this is not the best scan, and I know there are some blown highlights. I remember the day I took this picture, and when I look at it I see how much he has aged in the past 11 years, although he is still great for his age.



    I also found a thousand or so slides that I really must scan, if only for the memories.

    Lovely work William, here and on your FLIKR gallery.

    Was just wondering how you are scanning your film?

    Cheers,
    Jeff

    Jeff,

    Thanks! Very appreciated.

    I'm scanning all my film (35mm and 120mm) with an Epson V700 ( with either epson scan/ vuescan or silverfast SE). I'm currently using the stock film holders but might soon get the betterscanning.com model. So far,I'm very happy with the scanner - I have already printed a few prints ( 11x17inch) and the results are great.

    If you would like to have more info please feel free to send me a PM.

    Cheers
    Wil
