    Woody, since you've shot so much with the MM, can you share some thoughts on your reactions to producing B&W with the new M?

    Ed - Still very preliminary. I've only shot a few hundred frames with the M - when I get to a few thousand I'll be able to report with a bit more nuance. In terms of processing I'm basically pressing Command-V in LR and then proceeding as I do with the MM, taking my foot off the contrast a bit and using the blue and yellow sliders to simulate a yellow filter. With some time I should be able to improve on this. People I respect say that the MM out resolves the M slightly; I haven't done side by side tests; I'm fairly busy and side by side tests aren't high on my to do list because both cameras perform brilliantly.

    For a committed Leica user the M is an major step forward. The changes are incremental but important. I sold my M9 at the beginning of the year in anticipation of the M. The move to the M cost me $3k+. The shutter feel and sound is dramatically better than the M9. The M is the digital M that should have been - it's much closer to M3/M4 experience than previous digital Ms. The M8.2 style frame lines (optimized to 2 meters) make framing more accurate. For me these two items are worth the cost of the change - the rest is gravy.

    My impression of the high ISO is that it is roughly comparable to the MM. This is a case where side by side comparisons are on my agenda - how does the M compare with the MM in terms of the look of the "grain".

    There will be a debate going forward on ccd vs. cmos - The M9s will always have a different look than cmos cameras which some people will treasure. I don't have a view on the issue.

    re: Fun with the New Leica M

    I love your NYC scenes- could you share with us how you shoot these for stitching?- I have stitched in Ps before gotten unexpected results- especially when you combine frames that have distortion and frames that don't. Sometimes odd things happen- either buildings get overly tall and thin, then scaling makes them fat. You seem to be getting consistent results that feel like you used a single focal length, ie; 28mm shift. Mine tend to look like 17mm with distortion. It's hard backing up' in NYC as you know.

    It's very hard to stitch images that were originally wide in Photoshop and get the perspective to be anything like natural. I use PS when shooting 50 or 90mm; collapse the layers and use "distort" to correct perspective.

    When I shoot wider lenses I export full sized tiffs with lens and vignetting corrections applied. I then do the stitching in dedicated stitching software. I.m very happy with PTGui which produced the image above.

    For those interested, here's what it looks like in the daytime:

    And here's a shot from the top floor inside one of the Toulus


    WATE
    Jono, I know absolutely nothing about Toulus, but from the pictures they look fascinating, especially when shown in the daytime juxtaposed in what appears to be in a out in the farmland. Are they the equivalent of apartment type dwellings housed in the larger greater sized structure(s)? If so, the pic of what appears to be the stoned central court, apparently has a circular group of dwellings (apartments) too, that appear at first glace to possibly more costly or reserved for those who possibly have obtained a certain level of status or possibly income?

    If some of my assumptions are correct, are Toulus or these structures supposed to contain tenants of the farming community, replacing scattered single house structures throughout the nearby countryside? Of course all of my assumptions may be wrong? Thanks for any insight to these.

    re: Fun with the New Leica M

    simply panning three horizontal images from ground level to the sky is going to make three different distortions? is it not? would you not have to keystone first and then collapse second?

    hats off you are a magician!

    I'll have to give it a try.

    Woody,

    Comments on the M240 files and PP would be most appreciated....you have posted some very compelling examples quite quickly...looks like you have a feel for the camera already.

    On another point...can you compare the 18 to the 21 SEM...I would prefer to buy one not both as they seem so close in FL....

    Great posts as always,


    Bob

    Happy Easter y'all!

    UPS guy stopped by yesterday afternoon, some quick and dirty shots with the new M. We had a bit of rain, some of the colors seem more vibrant because of that.

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    Bruno same as Ceh & Vivek for me but I would inject some light into the colour image as it comes across a tad flat, I would put a lasso around the black dress and remove the white specks in PS with Filter >Noise >Dust & Scratches... You know all this I am sure:-)
    Nice though!

    Thank you all, Im happy you like it. The picture was taken with the M9 and Noctilux ASPH wide open. Heres another one with 35 summicron v4. How do I post images so they appear full size?

    M240 + 85mm CZ Sonar from the 1930s. At f1.5. Live view makes it possible to focus this lens, which is on an adapter for a Contax RF mount to Leica SM that doesn't couple with the RF accurately.

    My last images with the M9-P taken yesterday, as I now begin the wait for the new M...

    First two were the 35 FLE, final two were uncropped with the 90-Elmarit:

    At first glance, it almost reminded me of a little bit the Roman Colosseum in design. Hoping Jono could shed some light on my questions regarding these interesting structures, that I asked a number of posts "above".

    HI There Dave
    These were first built by the Hakka people - the oldest one we visited was about 700 years old, but they've kept building them right up to the present.

    Vivek pointed to a link:
    Fujian Tulou, Secrets of the Fujian Tulou, CNTV English, CCTV News

    The 'apartments' (mostly a single room) are around the outside, sometimes the tulous are two stories, but sometimes up to 5 - up to 800 people lived in them (it must have been hell!). The buildings in the middle are usually temples. Some of them have courtyards where people keep chickens etc.

    Several of the ones we visited were still lived in, in a pretty rudimentary way,

    We stayed in one which has been renovated (200 years old), it's a hostel/hotel, with nice simple rooms, and you eat in the courtyard - tough sensibilities were required, as there always seemed to be someone killing a chicken whilst you were eating

    There are apparently 30,000 of these structures (some round, some square). The story goes that when the Americans first started surveying China from spy planes they thought these were missile silos!

    Here is the Wikipedia Article

    re: Fun with the New Leica M

    Question: How you guys like the M240 color? I read WB on the warm side - I guess that means AWB ( Dont care much about AWB) . How when you do custom WB and how are the presets? How are skin tones?

    re: Fun with the New Leica M

    Jomo,

    Thanks ever so much for enlightening me on the history of the Toulus. I most certainly will follow the link Vivek provided. What I cannot wrap my head around is there are around 30,000 of them (supposedly all around China?)....unless they were build up to the recent present as apartment dwellings, much as we do hear in the west with our apartment high rises and thus are analogous with the. Fascinating and that's why I"d love to make a trip there. Thanks again!

    re: Fun with the New Leica M

    Howdy folks, hope all is well with everyone here. Apologies as I have been away from this forum for sometime. Like Ajay, I had a UPS truck delivery last Sat.

    Some initial shots. Ignore the aperture in exif. All shot wide open. LR4 is not picking up the correct aperture settings.

    Dug this one up while looking at last year's images. Yes, I have thousands yet looked at. Good fun. La Tour de France 2012 comes to Paris for the last stage.
