    Hi Horatio and welcome! The shots look like they are interesting, but there is something wrong with the web conversion, I think. All detail has been lost and they are a very low resolution and file size.

    Thanks Jaapv!

    Yes, something went wrong. I'll check again but maybe you have any suggestion?

    Re: Even More M8 Fun [POST YER PIX!]

    Here is one of my out-takes from Leica Day. I couldn't drive because of a medical problem, so I had to have my husband drive me to the town square of the next town over. He gave me 30 minutes...don't you love it! Actually, I appreciate that he drove me there... through Friday afternoon traffic.
    I feel like Maggie does... I too, live in an un-inspiring place. I will have to admit that at least it is usually sunny. I'm going out next week (when I can drive again) and find something interesting around here. She has inspired me to look harder!

    Maggie,
    You have no idea what these golf carts look like...these are tame. I've seen '57 chevy's, hot rods, model T's, decked out for every state and sports team, 4 seaters, city cars, etc. Hey, maybe I should do a series on that!

    That'd be cool! I see some pretty crazy carts when I visit my folks down at Sun City, TX.

    Speaking of cars, here's a phonecam shot of my new (to me) '04 WRX:



    I traded my '05 Outback Wagon for it even up! Captain Slow no more! Can't wait to take it home in a couple of days. (I suspect it will meet the M8 shortly thereafter.)

    MWalker: I got to this thread a little late, but your first shot ( deserted 2 ) is a wonderful use of color, and the second shot is a nice depiction of a very familiar site in rural Kentucky and Indiana. DR

    Maggie,
    Congratulations on the new car. Enjoy! That is a nice shot for a phonecam. I never have used mine except to take a shot for my phone background.

    MWalker,
    I was amused that your car matches the blue in the merry-go-round shot. Your Porsche is a beauty.

    DR thanks, Cindy was right that was a lucky find....it was a deserted school in Bandana, KY. See another pic in my gallery titled "field study", that was taken there too.

    Cindy, That car was years of blood, sweat and ....money...

    Gorgeous 911, Mike!

    Maggie, those are fast cars...you'll love it.
    I hit 100MPH during the test drive without even breaking a sweat. I wasn't even trying- I just wanted to get a feel for how the engine felt as it revved close to the redline.

    Thanks Jack. Everyone seems to want me to eat healthy. So far I'm going along with it, but I don't know how long it will last.

    Speaking of lasting... I took the M8 out for a stroll this morning only to discover that it was stone dead. I have the battery in the charger but I'm suspicious. If it turns out to be something more sinister I'll be pissed since it's the only camera I brought with me. I've read (and ignored) posts here and elsewhere about unresponsive M8s. Is there a trick to getting them back in action besides a fully charged battery? What's the little switch next to the battery do?

    Did you take the battery out and re-insert it? That fixes things, sometimes.

    Re: Even More M8 Fun [POST YER PIX!]

    Yup. I tried that and didn't get any goodness. However, I put the battery in the charger and waited about an hour then retried. I was able to get a red light blink on the back of the camera (which was at least some kind of a sign of life), but no image in the counter/battery level indicator. So for now, I'm going with a completely depleted battery and have the thing plugged in. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I somehow left the thing on and ran the battery down.

    Any luck with your M8 Tim? Hope a fresh charge brought it back to life for you.

    Re: Even More M8 Fun [POST YER PIX!]

    I was able to get a hairline of charge just before leaving for point Reyes. I kept the camera off until I couldn't stand it any more and then managed to make about 8 exposures before it quit. I'll charge it over night and should be back in business tomorrow. Good lesson to carry a spare battery! Thanks for the concern and tips. I'll see if anything came from Point Reyes. Beautiful place!

    At least now you know it is a battery problem. Too bad you didn't have time to get more charge on it (or have a spare battery) before going to Point Reyes.

    Re: Even More M8 Fun [POST YER PIX!]

    Tim,
    I bought one of the first 1500 M8's. I had SDS on that M8 and nothing would revive it. Leica Solms wanted to take a good look at the M8, so they gave me another body.
    It sounds like your problem is just a battery problem and that is a good thing. I had 2 batteries at the time of my SDS, but now I have 4. If I were you, I would at least pick up 2 more ASAP. I have mine labeled and I use them in sequence. I let them drain all the way down and then charge them all the way up. If you only have one, you'll get into situations like you are in now. Many times I have seen mine show life on the battery gauge, and then the gauge went to zero in a few shots. I think that battery gauge is not always accurate. Another thing is that I forget to turn mine off once in a while when I stick it in my bag. It leans on my big softie shutter release and bingo, dead battery before you know it.

    Re: Even More M8 Fun [POST YER PIX!]

    Tim,
    After I wrote the above, I was packing up my M8 for an overnight trip. I remembered Guy's dust bunnies on his wildlife photos from yesterday, so I got out my dust blower. My battery gauge showed more than half, but the M8 gave me a warning that the battery was too low to clean my sensor. Go figure.

    Maybe if you contacted Tony Rose at Popflash, he could overnight a battery or two to your next left coast stop...just a thought to keep you shooting without worry. Good luck.

    Maggie,
    Sorry to go off topic.

    Tim batteries issues are important ,let's just leave that because there have been issues , myself include with batteries . Another reference to stay on top of them.

    Maggie if there is one Leica lens to get than I can't recommend the 28 cron enough. It is that good and i am one picky picky guy when it comes to lenses

    Van Nelle Design Factory

    The old Van Nelle factory, built 1925-1931 by the van Nelle Tobacco, Tea and Coffee firm, is an important architectural landmark in Rotterdam. Nowadays it houses offices and small firms and is called the van Nelle Design Factory.
    I had to be there yesterday for evening on the latest developments in implants and took the M8 with me. Photography turned out to be a lot more interesting...

    Thank you both! In some ways, dealing with an iffy battery made me extremely choosy. I didn't even turn the camera on until I had the shot framed and the aperture set. Forced me to think and pre-visualize more than I would have with an empty card and a full battery.

    Re: Even More M8 Fun [POST YER PIX!]

    Sometimes my battery indicator reads "zero" but I'm still able to take many more shots before it konks out.

    I'm still debating with myself about getting a Leica 21mm, 24mm, or a 28mm. I think I'm gravitating towards the 28 Summicron. A few more months till my b-day. I'll find out very soon.

    I have a 50 Summicron that I recently purchased from another photographer I randomly met in a cafe. It's now at DAG for calibration. Very excited about getting it back soon

    Thank you.

    Lens was a Zeiss Biogon 35mm f2.0 (f4.0, 1/1000, 640). The weather condition was very cloudy. My visual taste always gravitates toward high contrast. This lens has strong contrast, and I think it works well in cloudy condition when the lighting is diffused and quite "flat". This is a sharp lens, but sometimes I find it too sharp for some of my subjects. It won't make faltering portraits.

    Here's the original representation via C1 standard film curve, no sharpening, and all other settings at zero.

    At the risk of posting in the wrong place, I just scanned this negative shot with the MP that Linda lent me during the Moab Workshop.
