Edward, the two people in that cave shot really make the photo lively. I love it.
Charles, What a nice portrait. I love that lens more and more. I know it is great as I have the 80lux now
Mitch, thanks for sharing your process flaw, I really like that #4. #5 seems too much NR there and color information seems no longer there. I would use it as BW.
Gray, that is really a nice shot. Love the composition, color and subject.

Here are two more from last trip.

Thank you Ron and zhangyue!

Gary, excellent shot, and dangerously close
Zhangyue, the second shot is outstanding. Did you take the camera in the water?

Zhangye, thanks, but my view on #5 is the opposite: it's a photo that I like a lot, both in terms of what it expresses and the color, not to speak that the "grain" both at 50% and 100% views is attractive; also, I don't see that the color information is "no longer there". The post in question is a repost of one some 10+ pages earlier, which a number of people liked, similarly on my flickr site. I reposted on this page for Katie, in case she was concerned about a couple people having said that the M9 is a poor at high-ISO, which I've also dealt with in p.771 #12.

Edward, the first 50 Planar shot on the prior page is very neat with the people showing just how massive that rock formation is. Nice series overall of Lebanon, I admit I haven't seen many photos from there

Charles, very nice shot with the 75 Lux and Ice light. Still fiance or did you get married?

Mitch, nice examples and write-up of high-iso shooting with M9

Gary, you are making me think about some buffalo burgers for lunch .

Michael, awesome shots both of them, but #2 is fantastic. Great perspective. Did you get in the water with the M9? Now that I don't know if I have balls for...insurance or not

Thank you Ryan! Beautiful set above. The colors remind me so much of the M9, very slide film like.

Here are some more night shots using the "Shoot at ISO 640 and Push in Post" technique. These are shot while walking and somewhat looser in style.

All with the Elmarit-21 ASPH.

p.726 #9 · p.726 #9 · Leica M/X/T/S/Q Picture Thread


I have aways been a Canon user with all the high end equipment needed to weigh someone down. Several years ago I was hit by a car while walking my dog in Pasadena spent a month as a trauma patient and in a wheelchair and walker for a year. I did not use the Canon equipment that much for a couple of years and soon came to the realization that all that stuff had become a burden.

Over the past 3 years I would always start my FM visits by coming to this thread first before the Canon Forum. I bought the Sigmas DP1 and 2 Merrills and took some wonderful and detailed images. I obtained the Sony RX1 and loved the high ISO, color and take anywhere form factor. But I what I really wanted was a Leica. It is a little crazy to want something so expensive and have never even seen or held one. Finally the Samy's Leica Boutique opened and spent time with Ebi Kuehne, been with Leica for over 40 years, and I must have held the ME for about a half hour while at the store. There is never a hard sales with Leica sales people. A month later I found a brand new M9 at the SoHo store, Craig was great to work with and soon a M9 and 50mm Lux were in my hands. I learned that you need to be aware of what the M9 can do and not worry about the things it is not. I will use my Sony RX1 as my 35mm and will probably find those special buyers for the Sigmas this will reduce my kit to two cameras.

I am sorry to made this a long story but I hope to begin to contribute to this wonderful thread in my small way and just wanted to give a little background. It becomes apparent that most of the contributors to the Leica M8/M9/X1 Picture Thread treat each other as old friends.

There's a lot of catching up to do in this thread when you've been away for 11 days, a lot of great photos and some interesting discussions as well but now I'v managed to go through all the pages so I'm up to speed again

Hopefully I have something to post from my trip soon!

I'm so angry at VSCO, I wrote them a nasty letter. I've bought all their presets, but the latest one (just before this slide films one) was complete crap. Makes any images I run through the presets look ridiculous, but yet there samples look great. Upon emailing them they did nothing to rectify the situation. So I'm protesting the new preset pack

Anybody else feel the same way?

Thanks for for your kind comments.

about 2nd shot: yes, I was in the water and my camera has to be almost at sea level to get that shot. I focus and wait the wave going away. Now, you are not surprised I took M9 to deep sea snorkeling on a small boat. I might be either silly or crazy, but a risk taker for sure.

thus, for people always want find mint copy of certain lens, I am taking beater from now on instead so it can go anywhere with me, thaaatttt issss my tool. my 50lux now is qualify for that since last drop In that sense, Zeiss and VC are awesome tool as well.

Mitch, I realized that photo is the same one pgs back, but didn't get the chance to comment last time. Thanks for your explanation.
Ryan, those are very familiar scenes. I have the shots in the same location last year. Beautiful place with great color.
Salvador, thanks for sharing your story. welcome to thread, make it home and share us pic and story

Feel the same way as I want to protest them...no. Feel the same way that 03 sucks compared to 02 and 01, yeah. 03 I can probably count on one hand the number of times I have used. 01 and 02 on the other hand I use almost every shot. And funny you mention that their samples look good, I was thinking the same thing yesterday when I went to the site...why have I never been able to get 03 presets to look that good?

So something good did come from dropping that lens, huh?

Thank you, at least I'm not going crazy. I sent them an email a while ago, I've just sent them another one today after receiving the promo slide films email.

BTW, just as I was writing this, I got an email from them, they're offering me a voucher towards the slide film pack, $15 for me being inconvenienced buying a $60 preset pack that's utterly useless.

There rational was that the Film03 set was built to emulate instant film, but still nothing I've tried has come close to what they have on there site. I've tried landscape, portraits, night shots, day shots, studio shoots on white backgrounds.. Can't seem to get those presets to work for me.

Anyone take the plunge and buy the slide film pack? I don't want to be disappointed again. You know, the whole fool me once shame on you, fool me twice...
