Ok so finally I am back! sorry it took so long to post these images, I have been trying to start a new career as an architectural photographer (not with the Leica IIIa of course
, all digital unfortunately) and haven't really had time to concentrate on much else - but alas have been out a couple of times with the IIIa, so here finally are some of the negs from the first roll of film I put through the camera (Jupiter-8 50mm lens, Kodak Tri-X 400)
I am quite happy so far with the results, the only problem I have is that the film seems to slip down a bit and exposes over the sprocket holes slightly, although I have recently found out this is normal for this camera and even Cartier Bresson had the same problem!
Also I find it a little tricky to compose sometimes through the little viewfinder and it always seems as if the image is showing too much of the right side and it isn't exactly how I remember composing it, anyway I realise this is an old camera so it obviously isn't perfectly precise, I may buy an external viewfinder for it to stick on the hotshoe, has anyone else had a similiar problem composing with a Barnack?
Anyway really pleased with the camera!
Feedback is welcome on the images.
