    M8 on the Moab Workshop

    Certainly one of the most used camera's on the workshop and i only got to play a little with it. Since I let others use all the gear that Leica sent to me for the workshop. Leica sent the M8.2 in chrome along with about 6 lenses. I really like the new M8.2 with all the improvements to it and certainly is a fun camera that produces some great images as you will see what others have shot with it. Anyway some images i took and also want to give out a big thank you to Leica for once again supporting our workshops. Even though I am on a break from shooting the M8, Leica still supports all the efforts on our workshops and are dear friends to Jack and I. Kudo's

    Re: M8 on the Moab Workshop

    Incidentally:
    1. what colour was Jack's hat and jacket (I don't see Jack as a purple hat kindof a guy )
    2. were you using filters?

    I think the pix of Doug and Jack point to another step in achieving the "stealth camera:" combine your plack camera with black gloves. It's especially effective when--as in Jack's case--the camera is smaller than a glove.

    Jack just likes being in style . I would say the black shoulders and arms are black like they should be and this would be where the IR problem would rear its head.

    We need some pictures of Guy in his IR magenta sweater that he wore a lot when the M8 was first introduced and we took it to Yosemite. It was just the right colour, even with a UV-IR filter on the lens, to look like a fabric gone magenta because of IR problems, when in reality, that is the colour it was.

    Hi Robert
    you could be right, but I'm applying Occam's razor to this one. It seems that there are two possibilities . . . . Jack is wearing a coat which is a mixture of black, and that funny blue that the m8 get's wrong, together with a purple hat . . . . or else the IR problem is rearing it's head.

    discuss.

    Re: M8 on the Moab Workshop

    I had the IR filter on. Some materials are much harder to correct but I did not exactly color balance these either. On laptop after a very long day of packing, driving and shooting and no sleep. Just wanted them up before I left Monument Valley

    I'm not surprised - there is a certain sort of material which even the IR filter isn't enough - can you remember if the hat was black?

    Whatever - it isn't very important, it doesn't seem to impact on natural subjects.

    I think it was just a polyester blend that is hard to correct. Have to check to see if that is in any MF shots also
