Might make for good moody pictures these hazy days.
Gotta go breathe in the smoke and take some pictures.
Brought the GRD1 along to brunch today. It was so bright and sunny I couldn’t see what’s on the screen at all and the familiarity with seeing in 28mm frames helps. For a while I felt like I was shooting film again, where I don’t see the image until I got them out of the camera and processed. The GRD1 is already set to spit out images with the colour tone, all I did in post processing is compensate for exposure using levels.

Got this from my uncle a fortnight ago, and have been trying to figure our what to do with it. Sell? Keep? It didn’t come with any lens. While I have a Jupiter 8 50mm f2 on the Zorki 4K, it really doesn’t work for me on the crop sensor in the R-D1s, turning that into a 75mm equivalent. I’m also not prepared to fork out thousands for Leica glass.
I like Leica in general, but I don’t like Leica price specifically ;)
And there are always other options. I also happen to like Voigtlander designed lenses. They have some pretty nice stuff for the Leica M mount. The 15mm/f4.5 Super Wide-Heliar looks awesome!
No no, not an Audi :p
I’m referring to the Sigma one:
At first glance, it’s really beautiful. Rather long, but quite handsome. I wonder if the battery is big, the AF and electronics are on par with the rest of the industry.
WTF is it with camera reviewers who never miss to say “I do wish..” after saying whichever camera is oh so great?
That’s just bullshit review.
I hate hypocrites who praise a camera to high heavens and then try to balance that with “oh but I do wish..”. No, it does not balance anything.
