COOPH strap with LEICA M10-P White Edition and LEICA NOCTILUX 50mm f/0.95 ASPH.

Seeing in the Dark with the LEICA NOCTILUX-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH.

Advertised as a lens that outperforms the human eye, the LEICA NOCTILUX-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH. is considered the best 50mm lens by many. Beyond bokeh worship and any aficionado praise for the romantic, dreamy and surreal look it produces, it is indeed a lens with state-of-the-art optics and unique characteristics. So I was happy to spend some time with lens and see if all the fuzz is for real. “The world’s fastest aspherical lens” Source: Leica Camera AG During a […]

Trying out ORBA by Artiphon

When Artiphon announced ORBA on kickstarter in 2019, I was intrigued. I liked their approach towards creating a musical instruments for the hands. It integrates a loop station with drum machine and synth sequencer. It felt like an innovative tangible interface with motion (accelerometer and gyroscope) and touch sensors and haptic feedback as main input mechanisms. So now, almost one year later, I have the ORBA instrument in hand. I have to admit though, my initial excitement wore off throughout […]

Leica M10-R Demo Model

Trying the just released Leica M10-R

As it happens, I was invited by Leica to attend the Leica M10-R release event July 16, 2020.

Different from previous releases of new camera models, most of the relevant information was already spread on the internet weeks and days before through numerous leaks. […]

The Leica M10-P White Edition

So here it comes. After months of consideration and deep soul searching, the day has finally arrived. Ever since my last endeavour with rangefinder photography, I knew I would return to the Leica M System at some point. Little did I know that it would happen in white. And yet, here I am sharing my first in depth encounter with a marvellous piece of German engineering and product design, the Leica M10-P White Edition. Even though I unpacked various Leica […]
