Voigtlander Color-Skopar 21mm f4 P Lens First Impressions

Voigtlander Color-Skopar 21mm f4 P Lens First Impressions:

When I’m looking for a wide angle lens, I generally want something small because I use wide angles for street, architecture, and even on vacations.  Therefore, I want something that is easy to carry around, and I don’t mind sacrificing a larger maximum aperture for it, especially since most cameras these days have great high ISO capability.  Plus, I stop down my wide angles generally anyway.  With all that said, I’ve been wanting to try the Color-Skopar 21mm f4 P by Voigtlander for quite a while, and now that I finally got one in to review, here are my first impressions of it.

More From My Shoot With Cinestill 50 And My Leica M6

More From My Shoot With Cinestill 50 And My Leica M6:

I thought I’d post some of the remaining shots I had taken with Kristina (Instagram), when I went out with her on a social distance shoot to have some fun with my Leica M6 TTL Millennium.  As I said last week in my first post with the M6 (post here for those interested), I was using Cinestill 50 for the first time.

Leica Leather Wrist Strap Review

Leica Leather Wrist Strap Review:

There are tons of great camera straps on the market to choose from these days, and a lot of them are very good, which makes it even harder to choose sometimes.  I’ve reviewed quite a few in the past from several manufacturers, and for the most part, each one brought something cool, and unique to the table.  I always thought that Leica should’ve capitalized on the strap market a bit more, and well, they have.  There is, for example, the Leica Leather Wrist Strap, which is designed to fit M and X cameras, and it is what I am going to talk about now.

Fujifilm X-T4 Mirrorless Camera First Impressions:

Quarantine caused by the corona virus pandemic here in New York City has eased up a bit, and I’m beginning to go out for more walks again.  I’m still taking a lot of precautions, and shooting is definitely not like it used to be, and I don’t go out for as long as I used to but with that said, I am also beginning to start reviewing new gear again.  One piece of gear that’s been on my list for a while now is the new Fujifilm X-T4.  I recently received one, and here’s my first impressions of it.

Back to Film With Cinestill 50 and my Leica M6 TTL Millennium

Back to Film With Cinestill 50 and my Leica M6 TTL Millennium:

I was originally going to make this one of my weekly portrait posts, since I haven’t made one of those in a while (I couldn’t really meet anyone during the pandemic).  However, I haven’t shot film in a long time, so this will be a post about my recent experience shooting with my Leica M6 TTL Millennium again, and a film that is new to me at least, Cinestill 50.  Things are getting better in NYC, which also means I am finally going out to shoot more.  It also means I’ll have more content to post again.  This is a recent social distance shoot I did with my dear friend Kristina (Instagram).
