The Gravel Tremont Drive... GSMNP (Great Smoky Mountains National Park)

35 Lux, of course... I love the lighting on the trees in the last image here, and the red tree of course, it's on fire! Well, not really, but it seems it. I've had a good 2 day run photographing the Smokies. I didn't go today, I rested today.

Lovely autumn colors Doug, I just came back from Japan myself to see them for the first time but weather has been somewhat disappointing.

I meant the colors in Japan. I got there late autumn so I missed the peak and it has also been very rainy because of the typhoons so I wasted a few days indoor .

oh, that's a bummer! Typhoons have a way of doing that I guess. At first it didn't look like we'd have much color, but it has come on finally the last few days of the month.

Does anyone know the S/N range for cron rigid type II?
Most listing say cron rigid but their SNs seem type I...

Thanks
Jawad

There are some differing opinions here My understanding the 50 Cron Rigid I is with only "ft" markings, and the type II has both "ft" and "m". The cusp of the manufacturing is about 1958/1959, where there was a transition to the type II.

Doug, very nice! Wonderful fall colours, something we miss in Australia!

Thanks Charles. I guess that's true, you have a totally different climate and geology. Island unique stuff, all different than us.

Here's one dialing back the color. 75 Cron, processed to add structure, and "stencil" qualities.

I've been working around radar issues for too long. I interpreted you as asking about SNR (signal to noise ratio) not simply a serial number!

As for living vicariously through this thread - that's my lot since I sold my M8 and bought an M9 on this forum, with a known defect (SD card unrecognised following a simple firmware update).

It's being repaired through Leica generosity, but requires the change over to a completely new mainboard, screen and SD card assembly. Leica are having QC problems with the supplier, so I am still waiting and had only a chance to take a 2 couple of shots that were stored in the camera buffer, not the un-addressable/unrecognisable SD card, so still I wait...


BTW Charles, I also owned a 50 Cron Rigid DR for a short time before returning it, as I felt mine had too much haze. I admired the exquisite build quality but also could not live with the focus-range limitations on the M8/9, not knowing about Camera Care Clinic's mod option that you cleverly researched!

Now I remember why I get nervous on firmware updates. Many people run out and get updates as soon as they can. I have never been that way. I did update my Leica M9, but now, after this, I may think twice next time!

Thanks Charles. It's one of those images I just needed to look at and think about creatively to make it what I wanted it to be. Processed in Silver Efex Pro II.

FYI guys, a PROBLEM ALERT with NIK SOFTWARE AUTO UPDATE - I heard that there is a problem with a recent update of software. It seems to be an auto update, from what I gather. It makes it so you cannot edit your files from Lightroom or Photoshop. it requires a fix. Maybe they will get it fixed before it crashes others? I don't know...

Error message when trying to launch:

"MSVCP110.dll is missing from your computer".
Google solution: https://support.google.com/nikcollection/answer/3528247?hl=en&ref_topic=3001406

Requires a complete reload of software. Great...

My system has not updated as yet. So I don't know why that is. Personally glad it hasn't. Apparently if it updates, you are supposed to see a new Analog option. Apparently if you have the complete package: you will see that the new "Analog Efex Pro" software. Is what I was told by someone... I thought I had NIK collection. So, that makes me curious why it didn't do this to me. I don't have an answer.

Weird question.. I'm thinking of getting a pelican case for my M240 / 50APO / 50Noct only.. As those are the lenses that I foresee keeping for the long hall (and the ones I'd most likely take on short trips). I know that they can all fit into a 1400 case. BUT I was wondering if I decided to keep/travel with the following lenses, what case would I need if anyone has experience (hard for me to judge, you can't buy them here, I'd have to order online).

Option 1:
M240, 21SEM, 28Cron, 50APO, 50Lux, 50Noct, 75APO

Option 2:
M240, 21SEM, 28Cron, 35FLE, 50APO, 50Lux, 50Noct, 75APO, 90APO

Thanks guys!

Oh and one more question.. I just updated my OS to Mavericks (it was just there and I clicked yes), and now lightroom has gone monochrom... As in, any of the color buttons, and color sliders don't show color anymore. Makes it REALLY annoying for adjusting the hue sliders, as now I have no idea which way I'm going and which colors I'm getting.
Any ideas what's going on?

Sweet Paul and welcome back. Been away for a few days but great stuff everyone.

Had to get out and away from the keyboard so I took a walk around the block. Not my usual subject matter. Second one is the 35 Lux FLE wide open.
