    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Had s fun with the M8 this morning in Puerto Rico! Here are a few, but be sure to look in the workshop gallery forum for several more!

    All of these were taken with the 28 Cron:





    Guy will use anything available for anything he needs any time he needs it...

    This is wonderful. Every workshop you get a Mancuso image that is iconic and each time he has a new system. Following his posts you know that the P25+ is already a "done deal" so it only remains to be seen what he will be using by the next workshop.

    By the way I am just really learning to use my Hassy CWD and the Kodak senor, IMHO, is a real great deal. Quality of pixels is a missing component from most evaluations but should get more attention. I will be posting some images just taken and would really appreciate a critical evaluation.

    Thanks and best

    I took my daughter on a little field trip to the grocery store in the Hispanic part of St. Paul the other day. As we where leaving I saw these two doors down a hallway. So while my daughter investigated the gumball machines I dashed down the hall and took a quick snap. I guess if you work there they tell you if you're a red employee or a yellow employee. Next step? Find what's behind the doors! jc

    Hi Woody!

    No sense in attempting to make book on Mancuso's gear that's for sure, but he is still shooting the M8! Wish you had been able to join us on this one, you would have had a bunch of fun with your new system and your M8! Yes, the MF difference is "real," however, there are the downsides and nuances to using it. The good news is these are routinely being discussed over on the MF forum -- LOTS of good info there for anybody interested before they buy... But the advantages are clear too; different tools for different purposes.

    FWIW, Terry brought her new P&S digicam along too, the GRD -- final result is there are going to be about 7 new owners of that camera over the next few weeks too. And nobody will be selling their M8 or MF camera when they get it. Point is, selecting a camera isn't always about getting the best image quality, it's about finding a tool that fills a need.

    Can't wait to see some of your MF images! My number one tip, and it was proven on this workshop several times: use a tripod whenever possible!

    Cheers,
    Jack

    No doubt I would have had fun and from you and Guy learned a lot as always. However my Grandson was only going to graduate from undergrad school once in his life so that took precedence. I will definitely be attending another soon though and in the meantime learning to shoot MF. I'll post in the MF threads so all can see the beauty of the CFV back. Not high density like the P25+ or better but the quality of the pixels in this 16 MPx back are certainly a cut above either the 1DsMkII which I owned and my current D3.

    Thanks for responding

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    After coming across another flickr member's, dpattinson, black and white pictures taken with his Leica M8, I decided try shooting in black and white jpeg format. Per his suggestion, I set my in-camera settings to low sharpening and high contrast. Depending on the lighting condition I'd use ISO 1250 or 2500. But I like ISO 2500 because it's "grain" appeals to my personal taste. I'm very please with how the M8 processes black and white jpeg images.

    You know, for some reason I never really spent any time on black & white's... until I started seeing all the great posts here. Love the results from the M8. Love the "Fist & Menu" and the "ATM". Very nice!

    And BTW jaapv - love the clouds - incredible... and I'd love to see more from the 35/1.2 at a point. I've been thinking about getting this lens, and the glasses / candles shot might just push me over the edge

    Below are a few from today's early morning walk around...The first one is a 50 chron, the second a CV12/5.6... George

    Thank you Helen and George! It's fun taking shots in black and white jpeg with in-camera processing only, and resisting the urge to fiddle some more with an image editor like Photoshop. I wanted to challenge myself; that is, to see what I can come up with if this is all I have to work with.

    TRSmith, I enjoy the tree from your canoe. Looks like a fun study of contrast and texture.

    Thanks for the comments, apologize for being away.

    And thanks to Grumpymonk for reminding me that you can shoot in b&w mode with the M8. I only think about converting to b&w. It's an entirely different commitment to throw the switch before you take the shot.

    Some friends needed some pictures for their new website promoting their restaurant. This was my first photo gig and it got me and the missus a free dinner. This is probably not a shot that they will use, but I like it a lot - 75 lux with Alien Skin conversion

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    The 50mm Summicron is a lens that doesn't get a lot of attention, but it is still one of the best 50's available. The images it creates are both smooth and sharp at the same time.

    I think this was at f2.8 or f4.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Seemed like a subdued Memorial Day in our little New Hampshire town on Monday. Lovely weather, but fewer than the usual number of people observing the ceremonies. Always interesting to see veterans in their 80's marching with current active duty soldiers. The ones too old to march get driven.

    Great series Reynolds! All are good, but I think you should print #3 in addition to #1!

    PeterA: great! There's a dog for everyone apparently.
    DaveB: wonderful. I love the skin tones in the last B&W.


    I've been tied to the computer so haven't been out much. I get antsy though when I don't have fresh photos around. So I took a walk around the house and managed these simple shots. Kind of a rejuvenating break from pushing a mouse around. 75 lux wide open.
