    Images from the Carmel Workshop

    Here at the GetDPI Workshop in Carmel. Looks to be fantastic already. Went for a pre-workshop shoot this AM and Jim Collum met us and guided us to a wonderful location.

    Everyone can post images here.

    From this morning with the DMR.






    Wasn't sure which forum to use for this thread, we will all be shooting many different cameras. Guy and Jack, feel free to move as you see fit.

    Re: Images from the Carmel Workshop

    Morning everyone, it's very early in the morning and we are heading out this morning for a nice shoot at Point Lobos for a half day shooting. Than back in the classroom for our printing session . Than tonight our special invitation from Camera West here in Monterey for cocktail hour and meet and great with Sean and his great staff along with Leica rep Tom Brichta . Also some side news Leica sent Jack and I full demo kits for our on going workshops. This gives everyone a chance to try the M system out and see what they like and we have a very nice kit to demo for the workshop folks. They snagged them right up to try, as they should. But of course Jack and i had to visit Sean before the workshop started and you just don't know how dangerous that is walking into Camera West. I NEVER seen such a display of leica gear in all flavors. If you need something, trust me Sean has it.

    Well having said that i could not resist. Oh sure just twist my finger is all it took to get a new toy. Picked up a 50 pre ASPH with the snap on hood. I think this is the third generation. BTW I am NOT done yet. LOL I am so bad.

    Couple shots with daddy's new toy

    Ditto; the files from the DMR still amaze me. (not too shabby a shot either; really like the color offset, left to right!)

    I am actually back to 50% DMR use!

    Tim,
    Without looking at EXIF data, I had the same impression that Guy's round the table shots were with the M8....especially the one of Jack. You are correct about the "sumthin' sumthin' "

    Re: Images from the Carmel Workshop

    We made a visit to Camera West this evening. It is a very impressive store with that old style service and most importantly, old style inventory. I was only looking for a few items, including quick release plates for my cameras. The owner, Sean checked their inventory and when there was nothing in the new inventory, found me a nice used Kirk plate for my DMR at a very good price.

    I was very tempted by a 50mm Summilux ASPH, but I would have to trade my Noctilux in on it and as I explained to one of the staff, it would have been like parting with one of my children. On a positive note, the trade in they offered on the Noctilux was a very fair price. The 50mm Summilux ASPH was in probably mint- shape with perfect mechanical and optics. It was also coded. In my tests, it focused perfectly both near and far. If anybody is interested in a 50mm Summilux that focuses well on the M8, give Sean a call at Camera West.

    Here is a Noctilux picture of Jack, just after he made a new purchase.



    This is my hand held near focus test of the 50mm Summilux, using the price tag for the lens as a target.

    I'm a little too tired to process a lot of images but here are two from today.

    D300 50mm f8 6 seconds
    Attachment 2904

    A little bit later with the M8
    Dummy camera operator forgot to turn lens detection back on after shooting the CV 12 but I think this was the 28 cron if I'm wrong it was the 21 Elmarit

    Re: Images from the Carmel Workshop

    Dear All in CArmel

    with so much talent and so much different gear, you all have an opportunity to show the renderings of the SAME scene from various combos; MF, Nikon, Leica etc.
    ALthought the '
    "same body, same lens, same sensor, different pressure on the shutter button"
    type tests are of academic interest, what many might like to see is what each camera does in the real world.

    How 'bout it!?

    regards (and looks like a wonderful outing!)

    As Rob mentioned, we had an excursion to Camera West this evening. Here is a shot of the owner, Sean, shot with a 5cm/1.5 Summarit I got while at the shop (in immaculate condition).





    Another one with the 5cm/1.5.

    Re: Images from the Carmel Workshop

    Here are a few from the workshop.


    Here Jack is instructing us on the use of colour spaces.



    Guy looks on and presses the keyboard keys to advance the slide show while Jack is at the front of the class presenting the lesson. Occasionally, Guy will interject a few pearls of wisdom in regards to subjects being presented and his experience in the commercial world.




    Here Jack is working the controls, while Guy presents the material. The Leica Representative, Tom Brichta, looks on. Just to show the DMR still works, this was shot with the DMR and 21-35mm during Guy's street shooting presentation.



    After the lights go out, out comes the Noctilux again.




    A few from diner last night. This is Chris admiring all the fast lenses on the other side of the table. Charles had his new 50mm f1.5 and I had my Noctilux. This was shot with the Noctilux.



    I shot this with the Nocti, just before the one above and realized I didn't have the camera on auto but a manual shutter speed of 1/250th. When I looked at it on the computer, I thought it looked cool. This is John, very underexposed.

    Re: Images from the Carmel Workshop

    Ah, the plot moistens!! I just knew Jack would have you drooling on your shoetops over this stuff ;-) (You were already there, but then got sidetracked with the D300 a bit....Just keep it as the back-up for your D3 that is coming, and get this ZD to start having even more fun!! I looked at one the other day, and it hurt to put it down. That is why I started the other MF thread, which now has me seeing way more $$$ in the game.)

    Have fun, and remember to call the CC company when your numbers get run smooth from all the passes by the devices, magnetic and otherwise ;-)

    LJ

    P.S. BTW, it looks like you folks are having some great times and having a great workshop also. This is all good.

    Well if I do this the D3 will not happen but that is okay. I can use the D300 for the event work and call it a day.

    Hi Rob,
    I sort of played with and pseudo-white balanced your IR shot just to see what it might look like.

    Did not realize you liked anemones and seaweed for "dinner"

    Also like the beach rocks. The other "dinner" shot in B/W looks like something you might see in an FBI surveillance file....very nice. Great job, and looks like you are having some fun too.

    You're as bad as I am Guy, there's no 'calling it a day' there's ALWAYS the next one!
