Today, Leica has announced the new Thambar-M 90mm f/2.2 lens for the Leica M-System. Much like the Summaron-M 28mm f/5.6 re-issue last year, the Thambar-M 90mm f/2.2 features a similar optical design to the […]
- Just returning from vacation in Provence. Packed only my Typ109. The camera has a remarkable dynamic range given its compact size and price. This is a photo of my wife Instagramming in the garden of Dora Maar, Picasso’s mistress, in Menerbes, France.
Just got word that the Leica C Image Shuttle App for iPhone and iPad will not be compatible with the soon-to-be-released iOS11. Apple is rolling out iOS11 along with the iPhone X, 8 and 8 Plus, which […]
I’m new to this forum and sorry if I’m posting in a wrong section, feel free to move it where it belongs.
I’m trying to shoot drawings with the light, but as I move, I become more blurry. I saw a famous photographs of Picasso drawing with the lights where he’s sharp and still, and I’m wondering how it’s made? Is there any…[Read more]

This was my first time seeing a total solar eclipse here in Missouri. My conclusions are that a partial photographs just like is looks, because you must shoot though a dark filter and then the sky is black. But in total the photos do not easily show what the eye observes. Where I was, the sky in total was never black, but dark blue,…[Read more]
Jack, thanks for the kind comments! To answer you directly, yes, the sky was a darker blue at totality than during the ‘regular’ part of the day before and after. One note I made was how defined the shadows were during the darkest parts of the eclipse, the ambient light was just low. It was odd to feel like it was an overcast day, but still see…[Read more]
In 1980, I witnessed in India, best way to shoot during totality is
(1) Remove ND or Dark filter.
(2) At Iso 400, Shutter speed 1/60 and take different images at all Apertures. This way you can record all phases from Baliy’s Beads and different layers of Corona…
(3) same setting, but keep Aperture at F/8.0 & shoot at different shutter speed…[Read more]
Sunil, those are great photos, and film to boot! I wanted to try some film shots, but did not have two lenses that I could get a proper filter on and that mounted to a film body. Thanks for the exposure suggestions!
Now we will be ready for 2024. A fellow photographer predicted that by 20124 the DR of sensors will allow for a single shot to be able to pull out the range we need.
Interesting Jack. I also read that every 18 years we get a long totality. In 2047 we should have another solar eclipse in the US with 6 minutes of totality! It will be interesting to see what will be the Leica of that year!
Today, Leica has announced a new program allowing users of previous-generation Leica S-system cameras, or other medium format digital systems, to trade in those cameras towards the current Leica S (Typ 007). The […]
