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. With current COVID-19 restrictions also applying to this event, I joined a small group of people at the official Leica flagship store in Düsseldorf for the release event, that was streamed live on YouTube from Wetzlar. 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. […]

Leica M10P White with Summilux 1.4/50 White

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 […]

Leica SL (Typ 601) with Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 1:2.8-4/24-90 ASPH.

Talking about my Leica SL experience on Leica Rumors

I recently reported on my experience with the Leica SL Typ 601 and its relevance in 2020 after the release of the SL2 in late 2019. A revised version of the article is now also now available on the Leica Rumors website and was features on Instagram, Facebook etc. In recent days I thought a lot about the Leica SL and my perception of the system. Even though the weight of the system was a considerable burden to me, I […]

Using the Leica SL (Typ 601)

The Leica SL (Typ 601) is a 24 megapixel full-frame mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera introduced by Leica in October 2015.

Leica-CL

Some time with the Leica CL

As an obvious and long standing Leica aficionado, I must admit that I fell for the promise of the Leica CL: “Dream Big. Pack Small.” With its iconic design, its mechanical precision and compact construction made in Germany, it felt like the perfect candidate as an everyday camera and light-weight companion. It offered fancy new features such as WiFi, an outstanding EVF, 24 megapixels, the Maestro II processor and all kinds of bells and whistles. It even supported the Leica […]

Leica R8 - the quintessence of photography

Thoughts on Analog Photography and the Leica R8

I still remember the times during my studies of media technology when I dreamed of someday owning a Leica camera. Although I was happy with the Nikon F2 SLR and Nikon 24mm f/2.8 setup I used during the photography classes I took at university, I kept longing for more. A close friend and I spent many nights debating used camera options available at local Leica dealers but always decided to stay away from it. To be completely honest, we dreamed mostly […]

Polaroid Originals OneStep 2

OneStep 2 Instant Camera introduced by Polaroid Originals

As of September 13th 2017, The Impossible Project is called Polaroid Originals. Apparently the company’s largest shareholder acquired the Polaroid brand and corresponding intellectual property. That seems fitting since the 2008 founded company practically saved Polaroid instant photography. After Polaroid stopped producing instant film, The Impossible Project stepped up to produce new film material. They acquired a legacy Polaroid factory and developed new instant film materials for vintage Polaroid camera models. In addition to the Impossible Instant Lab (allowing Polaroid instant photos […]

Kodak Super 8

Kodak launches a new Super 8 8mm film camera

In January 2016 Kodak announced a new Super 8 8mm film camera at CES in Las Vegas. To say the least, this is a surprise and I am enthusiastic about it. They say there’s kind of an analog film renaissance and that’s why there is a market for it. As you may know, I spent quite some time over the past few years to revive a Leicina 8mm film camera. “On the heels of celebrating 50 years of manufacturing Super 8 film, […]
