Another weekend is upon us and I am planning on going with the family and some friends to see Avatar 3D at the local Imax. I have already seen this movie in standard 3D and it was amazing. I am not usually a fan of sci-fi films but this one is a masterpiece!
Anyway, I stumbled upon some cool links this past week and wanted to share them with you..
Erwin Putts the human Leica encyclopedia has posted his Pocket Leica Guide “Leica Lists” for free in PDF format. You can download it here. It is full of all the technical info on lenses, cameras, model#’s, years..all of the info you may like to know if you have an old lens and want to see when it was made. Pretty nice of Erwin to make this available!
Like cats? I thought I was nuts for taking so many cat pics lately, but really it is only due to the nasty grey weather we have been having lately. If you like cats of all shapes and sizes checkout this thread over at Fred Miranda..Meoowww!
I posted earlier this week about the Thorsten Overgaard Photography Extension course. Well, I think this is a superb way to learn at your own pace and improve your photography. Thorsten is another passionate Leica shooter who has always been helpful. I recommend his course and he has now made a more detailed page showing you what you get when you sign up. You can see the more detailed page HERE. This course is online and also gives you one on one with Thorsten for each assignment. Very cool!
Wow! I can not believe this 35 Summilux is still available at B&H. It is used but an 8+ condition lens for $2599. That is close to half price! LOOKS LIKE IT SOLD!
In case you missed it, (not sure how you could have) I put up a page called “The Worldwide Leica M9 Image Database” where YOU can upload your own M9 images for the world to see. I thought it would be a cool experiment and provide a resource for those wanting to see images from this camera. You can upload and each image can be tagged with your name so you get full credit. If this works I plan on putting one up for other cameras as well so users from all over the world can have a way to browse and share images from their favorite cameras and/or lenses! Go to the M9 Image Database page NOW! Images are coming in by the hour 🙂 If you know someone who has an M9, direct them to the page and help spread the word! Even if you do not own an M9 you can browse the images and rate them!
Digital Rev interviewed me this week on their blog. You can read it HERE.
The 50mm lens I use on the M9, the 50 Summicron F2 can be found for $929 used at B&H Photo. This may go fast. It is NOT coded and in an 8+ condition. If you want it, get it before someone else! They still have a used M8 like new in box as well. The M8 Sold!
