    Wem Wenders on Leica

    A nice video by one of my favorite directors on the Leica M8.

    Wender used a Leica when scouting locations for "Paris Texas" and a Makina-Plaubel for "Written in the West."

    John - your post looked lonely so I'll thank you for the links. Those who only know Leica might not know the Plaubel Makinas which were exceptional 6x7 [and a 6x9] rangefinder cameras. My own Plaubel has had a lot of film through it. I enjoyed the following from WW :

    The Leica was there to search for material, the Makina was pleasure..............

    Thank you Jono,

    That's one thing this forum has is an appreciation for elegance and enthusiasm.
