“Why don’t we take off alone,
Take a trip far, far away,
We’ll be together on our own again,
Like we used to in the early days…”

Many of you have seen Andy’s work on my site, and have benefited from his frequent and always thoughtful commentary.

(So, we’re expecting big things from you Andy and you’re off to a great start with your first article!)

Congratulations Andy,

CCD sensor in a new M body… is Leica listening?

Sort of.

Two individuals have alerted me (thanks Dave and Aaron) to the fact that the Leica Rumors website is reporting a refresh of the Leica M-E may be coming which involves taking the current M240 body and wrapping it around the KAF-18500 18 MP CCD Sensor many of us know and love.

It’s not quite what I requested in my Open Letter to Leica (it’s not an updated CCD sensor), but I would be very pleased if this were true.

In the meantime, if you haven’t already done so, please consider signing my Open Letter to Leica.

After 4 months with the Mamiya RZ67 & 110/2.8…

After four months with the Mamiya RZ67 and Mamiya RZ 110/2.8 lens, I can say with absolute certainty that this gear (together with Kodak Tri-X 400 film) is superior to anything I’ve ever used before for portraiture.

To think that people are practically giving this film equipment away is very telling of our instant gratification-based culture.

Sometimes, the results are truly worth waiting for.

I’ll be posting new images soon, but in the meantime, please have a look at some of the photographs the combo has yielded for me so far:

Crossing the Rubicon.

I crossed the Rubicon yesterday and photographed a 4 hour event entirely with film.

(I had no choice really, seeing as I no longer own a digital camera.)

The Kodak Portra 400 will be delivered to the lab tomorrow.

Fingers crossed… though I’m comforted by history, and countless photographers before me who have successfully photographed critical events with the “old” medium.

The gear I used: Mamiya 7II/80mm.

—Peter.
