It is November 2017. The maximum resolution that you can get on a Leica Rangefinder currently is 24 Megapixels. I actually get asked a lot, why hasn’t Leica gone beyond 24 Megapixels in the full frame digital cameras? It is a good one. There are, in my view 2 types …

WELCOME!

Thanks for stopping by.

I travel a lot and take enough photos with a a diverse amount of gear I decided to start sharing my photos, thoughts and reviews.

I love photography, travel, reviewing gear and making technical tutorials. This site is all about sharing my photos, and providing insight on where to get some great shots around the world.

I’m an avid fan of Leica gear and after using loads of compacts and DSLRs from Canon, Nikon and others, I have settled on the Leica M system.

What I love about it is the timelessness of the lenses, and that I am able to shoot with a system similar to that which was used decades ago. Leica Ms rely 100% on the skills of the photographer … the result is always 100% your own work, not the work of computers in the camera.

Adelaide is a place that really comes to life after dark for natural light type photos. It is an artsy city, but pretty safe after dark particularly around the northern part …

About Me

My Camera of Choice

Well, I don’t have a camera of choice.

I have a system of choice, and that system is Leica. Full Stop, Leica. Sure, they are handmade and uber expensive, but, the Leica M mount lenses have kept the same mount since the 1950s. Their systems will be compatible for years to come.

Spend any large $s on any other system, and eventually the lens mount will be out of date, or something in the camera will fail. With Leica, systems will be around forever. Beat that for value.

My Favourite Type of Photography

Street photography. Particularly at night.

One of the things I love to do is walk around after sunset ad photograph all the lights, shadows and look for whatever we don’t normally notice about what is happening after dark in public areas.

The Leica MP rocks. Technically, this 35mm film camera is built to be tough, simple, reliable, and to be that photographic companion for the lifetime of the owner. This is …

Quick update: Check out the Latest Sharpness Test. The Leica 28mm F2.8 Elmarit is not one of the most expensive (Leica) lenses, but sure is one of the best performing …

In my view, the 35mm Summicron is the sharpest lens made by Leica. Hands down. I’ve made some samples available in full resolution to show off the power of this …

It is funny, when we receive promotional or items like this from Leica, they tend to arrive better packed than expensive lenses and cameras from other manufacturers. That was what …
