Robert, those are lovely black and whites! And Raid, seeing and enjoying your beach pics from a couple weeks back makes me realize how different our water/beach experiences are! The terrain from one end of the country to the other could not be more different

This is my usual swim the dog spot, but clouds were dramatic the past couple of weeks so here is what I found.

Always Alpe Devero, with the Leioca X1.Unfortunately the camera has a serious dust on sensor problem and to have it cleaned it is necessary to send it to Germany...more expensive than the commercial value of the camera itself

More beautiful scenery! Robert, you seem to have a talent for finding these locations... This photo catches my attention as did the others.

Dust. I have no idea what cleaning should cost but I imagine if you bought another new Leica digital, the depreciation over a year would be more than a cleaning of the X1. Let us know what you work out!

Thanks Dave, my wife and me like to go hunting for out of time locations...sometimes!

As for the dust problem expected cost is around 400 EUR (it was last time I did it). For the moment I solved the problem shooting film. A new sensor each photo!

robert

PS: but beside my film cameras I like to have a small digital for easy of use...maybe a preowned T with the 23 F2 ....and an adapter for M lenses....

Another shot from the archive, same journey as previous with the Leica x1. The face of the boy on the bicycle has been blurred in PS even if not so visible in small size.

Let's go slightly OT here: Should a person who likes his X100 get an X1? I really like the shots here, not only for the vision but also for the quality. Will I see an improvement with the X1? I really like the optical finder in the X100, and the X1 doesn't have one. But still . . .

Robert,
Nice that you still have that X1 up and purring. Thanks for sharing, these are very nice.

Rob-F I went from X100S to the X 113. And I had the X1 in the past. They are all good and different. If you enjoy having the ovf, stay with that, X100 is a great camera. If that is not so important, and you are looking for a change, the Leicas are a joy to use and the DNG files nice to work with as well.

David

Robert, the vomposition caught my eye and, of course. the man behind the lens made a great addition to the set of photos from that trip. Thanks for posting.

Now I have CCAG.....cuckoo clock gas! Brings back lots of memories of the first German click we bought when we were first married.

Thanks for the comments, it's interesting to review our own files a few years later...these are from 2011

Rob-F : I have an optical viewfinder on my x1, never tried a Fuji X so I have no idea how to compare...

There are many cuckoo clocks around, most of them have inside electronic made in Japan, are very nice but in my opinion not 100% original! The ones I like (but not yet bought!) are simple and pure mechanical inside!

In Friburg there are many small water canals, built in the old times as prevention against the fire. Oft the are between the road and the sidewalk. When walking, specially if you are a tourist looking all around you have to be careful not to walk inside one of them! Specially if you are a photographer looking for that special frame
