Digital Leica M8 / M8.2 / M9 / M-E /Mono / M10 aka "M" Discussions about the Leica M8 /M 8.2 / M9 / M9-P/ M-E / M Monochrom / M10 aka "M": Leica digital M mount rangefinder cameras. Naming the new digital M the "Leica M" is VERY unfortunate as it will only confuse newbies with other Leica M cameras of the the past. Happily there is room for confusion with only the past 59 years of Leica M production ... since Leica introduced the Leica M system in 1953. All Hail for the Leica Marketing Department learning Leica M history!

Ned, this one too. I guess that one who did get used with the color film look, can always create that look in digital PP without much hassle. But it becomes much trickier with such images when you shot at day time like your two first pictures so all depends on objects btw. You have push so much contrast that almost only mid tones are left. It is what we have to deal with linear curve. But M8 would be awesome at gray, rainy weather, lol

The hypersensitive user named NB23 completely misread post #4, believing Jaap was criticizing a photo post.

If you reread the post carefully you will come to the conclusion that Jaap was talking about process.

Next time I suggest NB23 read before hurling aggression at our long-standing members.

It's bad form.

Kevin and jaapv clearly misread my post where I make it a point to shoot the M8 like film and where I prefer skipping the process. At least when the M8 is implied.

Getting lectured on something that is NOT the subject of this post (and on something that is my job) did, indeed, upset me.

Lol, they didn't miss it ... they just clarified that shooting like film still involves post-processing. Its called the darkroom. If you're gonna cross-analogy the two worlds, then at least include all the steps.

This thread is fantastic ... I loved it.

It's called the lightroom, right? Darkroom is for negatives.

But what's the problem with my first pic? A dust in the sky? Jags in a downsized picture? Really worth going Anal?

Yeah, unhealthy place for sure. It's in a car bodyshop and those guys are always smoking and drunk or so they seem to be (maybe because of the fumes?)... But it's always fun to visit them, the "real people"...

I think it's dust mixed with fluo lighting... which makes green... But yeah, it's toxic.
