not bad handheld @ 1/16th, ISO 1250, the M8.2 makes things fun with the delayed recocking and lack of vibration.

oops, screwed up my original post by using the wrong image source links.
ANYWHO, what i was saying was I never bothered to try out the auto ISO setting as of recent...but I gotta say, it ain't half bad when you don't really want to worry about a whole lot.

From my walk home:

After nearly 3 years with the M8, I'm finding a new appreciation for the first digital Leica. The firmware updates and the Solms hardware upgrades have really made a wonderful camera - UV/IR filters and crop aspect aside...

Thanks Mani, - no artistry here, just mucking around.
It's three bracketed DNGs tiffed as-is in Photoshop. Then a tone-map in Photomatix. Then conversion to B&W in Photoshop. No funny tricks at all. It's the green channel that does it. I always hope to make life easy and just tone-map B&W jpegs, but it never works - it's the channel filters that do the trick.
my muckarounds with HDR vs darkroom chemistry is here http://picasaweb.google.com/cjbroadb...eat=directlink.

Just a few shots from going to buy dinner tonight(last night was cold, today insanely hot for a place with no A/C), i've started to become overly obsessed with color lately.

haha, i love using the m8 without the IR filter for random things like this. I spent a whole day once just wandering around my apparentment taking pictures of remote controls while pressing the volume buttons once (granted, there was some alcohol involved, but it was a lot of fun)

This was my first ever photo with the M8 - of the guy that sold it to me (Mr. Tomaru) while he was filling out the registration papers @ Leica Ginza... Nearly forgot about it!
