My MM should have arrived in NJ yesterday and will hopefully take it's place on a workbench there before too long! In the meantime, I have been enjoying many of the images here on this page of the thread (too many to mention).

But I will add that I enjoyed your series sdotkling and hadn't seen your posts here before. Then scrolling saw that same image by shiro_kuro that you later would pick out of the boy framed! I also was really struck by that one

I've been enjoying shooting mostly film that has been in the cool of a closet since about '03 and hope to process some B&W here before too long while my Leica gets a new heart.

Good observation, Erik. Fits right in. I'd say the answer is, "Pretty far." Relatively effortless filmless film.

Very nice Erik, I think the Monochrom is about going back to the future, or maybe forging a new past! Without factoring in for inflation on price of gear

Thanks, David. I've only recently jumped to my first digital Leica, after many years of either shooting film in my vintage Ms, or hating every digital camera I ever bought before. My M9M is so close in feel to my film cameras, that I can admit that m-a-y-b-e I can live without a darkroom someday. (Or at least save it for the Medium format stuff.)

It took me a while to come round but I did. And M9 MM great cameras. Once you get immersed in digital, and want a smallish camera for color, try the X100S T or F!

I am enjoying film again but limit my processing now to film, and when I can get to it. I send the color film out.

First proper outing with the CV 21/4. It has a lot going for it, I can't really complain about much tbh.

I was wiped out all holiday weekend with a major cold, and by Monday had a pretty itchy shutter finger. i finally dragged myself to the back yard yesterday for a few shots. Feeling much better today.

Thanks! I like the first one best also.

It's interesting that I did not notice a major tonal difference between the lighter and darker plants. At first I thought the rendering might have to do with the way the MM translates colors. Then it occurred to me that I still had a light yellow filter on the lens. So I guess the lighter plant contains much more yellow.

I know from my days of converting color to BW that some greens, especially in early spring, are actually more yellow. As summer advances, the yellow gives way to truer greens.

I don't use filters much, but in this case it worked out.

John

I purchased a Monochrome from a RFFer and I got to unbox it and take it to a statewide meeting of a Model T and Model A club here in Victoria last night. Posting a quick image to say how impressed I am with the quality of the b&w images it produces. Haven't had time to really work on my post processing for the MM, but the camera handles like a Leica Imagine that...

Very nice, OC. I admit to being a little wistful seeing your photographs here, but I'm glad the MM found a good home.

I enjoyed your web site, and especially the Winogrand article. My appreciation for his work has deepened over time, and your personal anecdotes and reflections are some really good reading.

John,
I have taken a real fancy to the camera and being so used to the M9 and its color work flow, I must say the B&W flow seems quick. I'll have to get my printer some fresh inks to see how the print flow compares to the M9 conversions.

I also understand why MM users say expose to protect the highlights. I got to the parking lot full of model Ts right at twilight and still managed to burn a few highlights.

Glad you enjoyed the site. I haven't touched it in a few years and need to update it, but I am glad you enjoyed the Winogrand article.

OC

Hi Allen. Yes, I did. After waffling about it to an embarrassing extent, I finally decided to let it go. The sensor had just been upgraded, so it seemed a good time.

As much as I love that incomparable MM output, I feel I"m a better photographer with small, nimble cameras like my GR. The sale also coincided with recent reevaluation of my personal photograph goals.

Hope I've done the right thing. As we all know, Leicas get in your blood and are not easy to part with. But, of course, nothing is forever and venturing back in is easy enough, if I decide to.

I thought I might replace the MM with something else, but nothing jumps out at me as compelling. I certainly will miss sharing with all the wonderful photographers in this, my favorite, RFF thread.

John we all have to do whats right for the way we see and work. My MM is going back to Leica this week. I know it has a dead pixel and I hope that they replace the sensor. It is showing some signs of trouble.

I am on the list for a new M 10.

Good luck and I hope that you keep posting somewhere on RRF.

Thanks, Allen. Sure, I'll be around in other threads.

Good luck with your MM. If I were you I would share with them your commitment as a professional customer and urge them to replace your sensor regardless. It's really not fair of them to expect you to face the prospect of a $1K repair and many months without your camera again. I think you have a strong case and I would certainly make it to them.

Stopping in to see what you all are doing with MM while mine is in New Jersey for a sensor replacement, really nice stuff here as always!

Sorry you'll be leaving the thread here John but it is all a journey and I'm sure you'll click with the GR and something else to follow that.

I have been enjoying some very pocketable film cameras lately rather than shooting my other digital cameras, and reconnecting to film (APX 25, Acros 100 and Neopan 1600 that I had tucked away) is good for me right now.

Thanks, David. I'm somewhat drawn to a film M, but a film GR sounds appealing, too.

BTW, there was a post on FM yesterday in which a guy reports that he dropped his M9 off at Leica NJ in person and was told the wait is now 24 weeks. Wow! Sure hope the MM wait time is better.
