Leica Sofort Instant Camera First Impressions


Leica Sofort Instant Camera First Impressions:

Today I bring you Leica’s new Sofort, which is not only currently the cheapest Leica camera that you can purchase new but it also shoots film.  I recently received the Sofort as a loaner, and first off, let me say one thing: At first, I couldn’t believe it when I first heard that Leica was releasing an instant film camera.  But it does use Instax Mini film, which is actually quite popular among a lot of people, and you know what?  I’m actually having a lot of fun with it.

Chinese Lunar Festival 2017 With The Leica SL


Chinese Lunar Festival 2017 With The Leica SL:

I bought my Leica SL along with the 24-90mm zoom, and the 50mm Summilux-SL in December but I was pretty busy back then, so I didn’t get to use it as much as I would’ve liked to.  It really sucks to have a brand new camera just lying there waiting to be used :).  My schedule has definitely cleared up since then, and I’ve been shooting with the SL quite a bit now.  Last weekend, I went to the Chinese Lunar Festival, and I brought it along with me.

Photos From Tokyo With The Leica M Typ 240


Photos From Tokyo With The Leica M Typ 240:

These are not new photos from Tokyo, Japan.  I’ve been getting over a nasty cold, so I’ve been home the past few days.  While surfing the internet, I ended up reading up on Capture One 10, and I decided to download it to give it a try.  I started with post-processing photos that I took a while ago when I visited Tokyo with my Leica M 240.

Oberwerth Heidelberg Camera Bag First Impressions


Oberwerth Heidelberg Camera Bag First Impressions:

For those who are still waiting for my 50mm Summilux-SL review, I’m still working on it.  I’m spending a little more time on this lens than usual because I want to get the most out of it before I post anything from it.  But it’ll be posted soon along with a few other things.  Actually today, I received something really cool in the mail.  The kind folks at Oberwerth, which is a camera bag company based in Germany, sent me the Heidelberg to review, and it’s such a beautifully made bag that I couldn’t resist posting a few pics of it.  Just to be clear, this post is not a review; I will write up a full fledged review for this bag soon.
