    and couldn't have the courage to shoot this with my DSLR, thanks to the "discreet" mode which I set as my default setting:

    The difference between the screen and a print

    One great pleasure of the MM (and I guess of all good digital files, including film once it's been scanned) is pixel-peeping. Looking at a 100% view is often the most fun. The web changes photography because it is essentially a display of such low resolution that, when compared to the resolution required to make a good print, it turns our files into the equivalent of gigabyte files.

    This is a cropped shot, about 25% of the original frame, 50mm Cron, yellow filter, ISO 3200

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Hooray... I got my M Monochrom on Friday!

    I was on a couple of lists, but grew impatient and decided to call around. I found one at Southeastern Camera in Raleigh. They had an M Monochrom and 35mm Summilux arriving on Thursday. I grabbed the M Monochrom, and UPS delivered it on Friday. As far as I know, they still have the 35mm Summilux in stock. I already had one, so I wasn't interested.

    MM + 35lux (ISO 1250)

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    By the way the new release of LR does not fix the MM high iso lens correction moire pattern issue. We may be stuck with this forever. Too few MM users to get Adobe's attention?

    Experimenting with PP

    I've been trying to understand the "clarity" function in the IOS App PhotoForge2. Here's a couple of experiments using only Photoshop CS4. Setup = MM, current 90mm Summicron, no filter.

    Ed, "Clarity" func usually lifts the contrast.

    Thanks, Vivek. This version of clarity has three variables: clarity, local contrast and tone masking. Decreasing the tone masking amount to some degree reduces the other effects on the highlights, but with a noticeable mask.

    At any rate, a few seconds with this clarity has attractive effects that the clarity values in LR or ACR don't have.

    I've actually tried this, they're fine unless you get a chewy one, that kind of freaks me out. I haven't quite gotten into slurping the juice off the top. Not sure if they do that in PH but certainly they do it in VN!

    I think local food in the Philippines is destroyed by the fast food market and the dominating big players. I stopped at 3 shops between a restaurant and the office to get some mango's and not one sold them, I mean come on, I couldn't buy mangos in the philippines! Lots of salty, oily packets of crap though. Obesity is pretty apparent too. Makes me really sad.

    Congrats on the camera and maybe that's why they called me the other day. Either way I'm traveling now for work, so I'm not in the local area, but good to see the camera (they may have been calling me about) went to a GetDPI member. Your camera will make the 4th Leica MM that I know about that they received so it's good to know they are trickling in and that one comes up about every other month to them.

    A big +1 for both! That shot of the Kigfish cCfe reminds me of a movie set (hmmm, shades of Sleepless in Seattle ). From you description, almost makes me want to hop on a plane and grab a bite there.

    MM plus a new old lens: a CZ Jena 5cm f1.5 Sonnar from the 1950s. This is a screw mount lens mounted via an M adapter. Focus appears to be slightly off (an inch or two behind at one meter close focus) so I'll take it in for a CLA.

    Focus isn't the only problem, I would think. This lens needs a bit of contrasty light so that images would be less mushy.

    This is a wonderful forum to be with, I have learned a lot and have been inspired. Merry CHRISTmas to all!

    "The simple joys of the season."

    I saw this boy eagerly waiting for his delightful snack as it was being prepared. It really struck my heart and made me reflect a bit. Simple joys. Happy holidays!

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    More with the Zeiss Jena 5cm Sonnar. This is an odd lens to shoot with. At one point I owned a vintage Exacta and (in Exacta mount) the 5cm Sonnar was the lens that came with it. The mount is lightweight aluminum. There are no f stop detents. the barrel turns as it focuses so you have to have to hunt for the f stop index. There is no depth of field scale. But nonetheless a really interesting look. Still not certain about the focus but I'm shooting a bit so figure out whether it justifies the expenditure on a CLA.

    More. This is stopped down to f2.8. Aberrations in the corner are very evident - this isn't the best lens for subjects that need corner to corner sharpness.

    Focus seems fine, Woody. The mush came from poor light.

    I take it that you use it with a proper hood?

But nonetheless a really interesting look. Still not certain about the focus but I'm shooting a bit so figure out whether it justifies the expenditure on a CLA.
