Just wondering how can a filter be fitted to a Voigtlander 15mm lens?
By the way, very nice leather.

Nice

Personally I went back to black (except for the handle which I left with the Claret for now).

Hi,

The delayed action white plastic insert, in your last picture, belongs to the 50th anniversary model M4 (1975)

Regards,

sorry for such a silly question/

I no longer own the MP + 50 cron, or the 35 lux. all sold here on the classifieds.

Currently, I own the M7, a DR summicron without the eyes(which may be sold here soon enough), and a 90mm T-E(acquired from the classifieds)

I always wanted to contribute to this thread.
My humble M2 just came in from Keh.com a few days ago. Rated as BGN but is very clean.
Using a J-12 for now until the 50mm LTM adapter arrives or when I could afford a better lens.

The story behind this image is this . I met up with a "Nikon Cafe" member yesterday. David is hell of nice guy and he had a D-70 converted to IR via "Life pixels". Anyways while having lunch I fooled around with the 45 P.C as well as my Nikkor 8mm 2.8 AIS on the IR D-70. As far as the processing I have no idea as he E-mailed me the files from his card that I took and I just added a a little contrast. Im not sure where the color is coming from there is another Images without color he sent and it was B+W but I liked this one. Im thinking of having one of my D3 converted to IR so I can learn/experiment more, especially with my Nikkor 8 mm 2.8 AIS.

What was cool is that after David got to handle my Leica M7 and the Noct as well as the M6 with the 28 1.9 ASPH Voigtlander I think we got another lecia member joining the fold.

As far as the image In IR , me likes it. It different, sure it's kind of out there , but isnt that the point in doing IR photography.

Sure you don't want to start out with cheaper model SLR? Or maybe you've got heaps of D3's laying around collecting dust

Best,

Hi - David here....... what I did to make the image........

Imported into Lightroom as a TIFF (Raw Files automatically change to a Red color - don't want that), then opened it in PS4. Adjusted the Levels (High/Low - no clipping), then experimented with the Channel Mixer, cut back the blue channel and pumped up the red. Then over to Topaz Labs for some enhancement and saturation.

The image has been "stepped" on - as you can see in the pattern/grain of the table top. The interesting thing I found out was I was able to keep the color of the camera - but the lense and the strap came out red. At that point I stopped.

It may not be for everyone's taste buds - but I am working with the intricacies of Photoshop and it's 3rd party add-ons. Pushing the envelope can produce some interesting results.

My thoughts - not yours - your mileage may vary.


Regards,

Dave

And yes - Gregory - I have never in all my life been so close to a Leica. I have only spent a few hours looking at some of the photos on this site. I am AMAZED at what can be done with this system.

Cheap? No - But my lord - look at what that F1.0 does................

Been wanting a setup like this for over 15 years. (ever since I held Jim's almost identical camera, except his had the original MP -vit). Sherry Krauter did a full CLA and modified the M4 to accept the Leicavit. It feels like an old friend.

Hey David welcome to the forum
It's was fun having lunch and playing with the IR D-70. And it was great to share the leica experience with fellow photographers. Next time lets go shooting more.

Hey! It's the 1980's!!!

Nikon F3 And Leica M4-P, May, 2010


I spent most of my career as a newspaper shooter with the Nikon on my shoulder; I wish it had been the Leica.

Don't do it - it's such a beauty!

Before heading out yesterday night, I fixed the black dots from DAG to the M6 and M7 and used the occasion, to set vertical and fix with green Loctite on both film bodies:



This is the end of the black over red tape for me.
Both film bodies really pop now after setting, making faster glass sooo much easier (and isn't that chrome M6 classic looking sexy with black dot ).
Looking forward to the scans on the weekend.

Is that brassing on the bottom edge of the M9?

It is a M8.2 unfortunately.
It is brassing all around already - I got a special soft paint version I guess - is there something like a Leica M8.2 SP (Soft Paint) ?
I wish, my M7 had this finish as well.
Here are some older shots of the camera - it looks much nicer than that already some weeks later:

Where does that pink in the lenses come from. Infrared filters?

Indeed. UV/IR filters. Probably should take it off when the lenses are on the m4-p but taking it on and off all the time will just ensure I drop one. Cant see it making a noticeable different anyway as I usually only shoot B+W in the film camera

The 35s brilliant. Still a big lens but worth the weight for the IQ. Thanks again for the scanner!!
