Leica M9-P

As many of you know Leica announced an updated version of the Leica M9 yesterday, the M9-P.  No internal changes, only visual changes to the body consisting of removal of the front “red dot” and “Leica” logo and placement of an engraved logo on top, a leatherette grip, and a new sapphire anti-reflective lcd cover. Definitely gives the camera a more “retro” and “stealthy” look.

Amazon.com  (black or chrome) and B&H Photo now have it listed and for pre-order.

Below are a few pics and video.

Illuminate

One evening I thought I would use my Ikan LED light to shoot some daffodils.  I love how well it illuminated the flower pedals.  I was using my Leica M9 and the 90mm Summarit-M lens.  Obviously, shooting in complete darkness can be challenging especially with a manual focus camera.  I had to lay on the ground to get this shot and used a high aperture (f/2.5) to get the shot.

Soon, I hope to post more frequently.  Having a 3.5 week old at home is making it difficult (sleep has become much more important).
