Pictures of Canada taken by Canadian Leica.

About year or so ago I returned to Ontario, Canada the M4-2 which was made in Ontario, Canada.
Here is something special to show it to Canadians and tell them - it is made in Canada.

I'm going to post here pictures of Canada taken by made in Canada Leica camera.

Can't afford MiC lens, yet.

My M4-2 with a tabbed 50 Summicron (Canadian) was the most balanced camera I have had. And I took some of my best photos with it. The lens is now on the Monochrom, but i traded the camera for an M6.

My current 50 in black Elmar-50 M and it is same weight as Cron, almost.
Fits well on black M4-2.

Thank you!

I was showing this print and others to gas station attendant on Monday. He told me it has retro feel in it. Maybe it comes from Agfa-Brovira paper which is from seventies, if not sixties.

I will copy your idea, and I will use my German made camera in Germany next year! The big challenge is finding a good US made camera for taking photos in the USA!

Well done.

Good!

Graflex is perfect for LF and Fuji instax. Brownie is special in MF department. And I don't see what is wrong with Argus. All three are iconic, but not as Leica, I guess.

Speed Graphic! ) I just saw the Weege exhibition at Ryerson University in Toronto. I had seen most of the photos over the years but there were newspaper clips from the New York newspaper PM. It was interesting to see how they laid out the photos and the captions.
I loved the shot of Weege typing a caption on a typewriters set up on the trunk of his car.

I guess it is due to my reply in this thread.
http://www.rangefinderforum.com/foru...d.php?t=152670

All I was saying - those who dump ALL of their gear in the sig are gearheads first and foremost.


This picture was taken at ALT Hotel in Griffintown, Montreal after long working day and photo walking evening.



Ontarian Leica with 24 F4 Skopar on it.

Then I show Ontario made camera to gear clueless Ontarians it makes THEM feel better. I guess, you have to be Ontarian to get it...

With Skopar 35 2.5 PII. Polypan F film gives me Leica glow



I know who they are since I was at school. Was listening them since...
But only during last year or so I was able to get them on LPs... Some of their LPs...

I took this picture a while ago with Canadian Leica in Toronto.

It came back to me today. I called it - Where is the street of Peace?

Hey Ko.Fe, nice shot, but you should probably know that it was very against the rules to photograph at a polling station like that (I worked at one this past election). I guess the workers didn't really care, or you were just really stealthy about it!

Maybe, but Milton isn't Toronto, I guess.
I wasn't hiding at all and took few and openly. Pre-focused with RF and framed it with EVF to my eye. All have seen me. And it was no "no photography" sign.
From where I came from the real election procedure is lost and to be able to vote in free, not manipulated way is the luxury for us. This is why picture like this means a lot to me.

About stealthy. I don't know, but with M4-2 nobody seems to be alarmed so far. People looking at me, but reaction is more on smile side. But while I was in Montreal, one student was astonished to see someone with film Leica. He was in real shock.

Federal election, so the rules are the same throughout the country. Election personnel are trained to ask people to take pictures/selfies outside by the election signs instead of in the actual polling station. The rationale is that photographers could potentially intrude on the privacy of voters. Personally, I don't think it's a big deal as long as you don't take pictures of the actual ballot. I agree that there should probably be signs.

My Voigtlander 25mm lens went on Bessa T.
And the Color Skopar 35 PII left to new owner oа M6TTL in sunny Florida. I have LTM Ultron 35 1.7 for now. It looks nice on M4-2, because it is black version


Finished, developed first roll last evening, scanned this morning.



Can't wait to see how this lens is on prints.

Thank you, unfortunately, I'm not in Montreal for unknown period of time...


... I printed from new to me Ultron 35 1.7 LTM. It doesn't sit perfectly on M4-2 due to cheap adapter.
