    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Beautiful shots everyone.

    @Woody - your stitched photos are great, I hope to do some stitching with my 50mm for a wider view.

    @Airfrogusmc - Allen, that 35 lux rendering is so creamy.

    Thanks guys, keep sharing.
    Kindest,
    Dave

    Dave love that "No Entry" Picture! Those kids look so excited like they are going into forbidden territory! You captured that moment perfectly. Bravo!!

    Edit: Looking at it a 3rd and 4th time. Gets better!

    Not just yet, but was fortunate to borrow one for a few days . . . . .

    . . . . . next comes the decision on what and how much to sell off to raise the funds to support a MM purchase.

    Time and patience, ya, just practice time and patience, . . . . . ya thats it, Just Practice Time and Patience . . . . .

    28mm cron, no filter, out of camera jpeg. I find this lens to be a wonderful match to the MM.

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    AArrgghh,

    I was just about to log off and then saw this thread... I get this camera in a big way, I often see the world in luminance levels and think this camera would be stellar. I don't think i've ever seen 35mm b/w that is so clean and MF like. No...i'm not comparing and won't start a Leica MM vs D800 thread because I know i'd be biased towards the Leica...I really like this camera!

    Portrait master, Ashwin. Those are pretty serious make up.. what was the occasion? The first one with the wings in the first series still leave me speechless... the bokeh made it very feather-like!

    +! Quite agree! That image...from the lone man and his dog, to the composition and light handed approach to it's tonality...strikes a wonderful balance and projects a feeling of serenity. An exceptional photo.

    In my neck of the woods it takes a long time for the snow to melt and for some actual color to appear in the ground, etc. Perfect for the Monochrom and a photoshoot with the kids!

    Original image was much sharper not sure how all you other posters are getting your resized pics to look so good!

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Finally got a Monochrome. First shots are of my daughter Leica (how apropos).

    Amazing camera. Of course the rangefinder was out but managed to adjust it myself today. Everything about it feels tighter than my M9's. And it's quieter. Nice surprise. But yeah I can see I've got an uphill learning curve with these files. Out of the box they are FLAT!

    This is iso 2500 with the 90mm Macro-Elmar.

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Here is a test shot and it reflects my feeling about this camera. This is a small crop. How big a crop, I am unsure. I don't even know if any of the lenses I have bring up the correct frame lines! It has been a while since I used a RF cam.


    MM by Vivek Iyer, on Flickr
    Leica MM, Rokkor 40/2, f/2, ISO 160, Baader U 2" filter, Reflected UV, Ultraviolet capture, Flash lighting

    I want to thank a getdpi member who made it possible which involved enormous amount of trust (cash being secondary) and Bart ("Knorp") whom I had the pleasure of meeting earlier today who kindly set me up with a battery, etc, etc.

    Not sure what you mean. I have gone through countless cams and lenses. They are how i use them. Nothing more nothing less. As far as MM is concerned, there is pretty much no use for near IR photography. For near UV it is highly sensitive. I am absolutely delighted with this finding.. I should now look for a visoflex 3.

    A practical implication of this finding is that lenses like the Rokkor and the ZM 25/2.8 ought to be used with an yellow filter (to cut off UV) to have decent contrast.

    Hi there Vivek,

    pleasure meeting you too and wishing you all the best of luck with your MM.
    Looking forward to see some 'crafty snaps'

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Congrats guys on the new MMs!

    I really like mine. First I wanted it, then I told myself I didnt need it, then I couldnt resist when my store had one, then I liked it a lot, then I got second thoughts and was close to sell it, but then I got second thoughts on selling it, and at the moment it is my most used camera and I love it. I am not even nervous about the new M - I am really enjoying the simplicity of using the MM and the "clear and deep" look of the images.
