A quote from "The professional" applied to phot...

Published November 1st, 2011

Léon: The rifle is the first weapon you learn how to use, because it lets you keep your distance from the client. The closer you get to being a pro, the closer you can get to the client. The knife, for example, is the last thing you learn.

same thing with photography ... you begin with 200mm and end up using 14mm ....

I would rather by a fuji X200 than a leica M10

Published September 4th, 2011

let's face it .... the first step to rangefinder photography is a 10000€ step ... because leica is the only player in town.

while i admit that leica lenses are the best i'm not interrested in rangefinder because of the lenses but just because of the form factor ... tiny, silent, unobtrusive... this is just what i want.

if fuji release a X200 with swappable lens at a fraction of the leica price then i'm sold.

let's wait photokina 2012.

Leica M9: buy without try ???

Published August 31st, 2011

i went at the local leica dealer asking if it was possible to rent an M9 for the weekend.

I mean, buying a 10000$ equipment you are not sure to be able to focus with is .... a little bit frightening. (i wear glasses)

The guy was cool and said that as soon as he receive a new demo model he will lend it to me for the week end.

then i asked: "it must be a very frequent inquiry ?"

the salesman : "no! you're the first !"

he sold numerous M9 to leica newcomers and these guys didn't ask to try it first .... i'm amazed.... i live in cannes ... these guys must be very very very rich.

A Leica M9 to the rescue

Published August 22nd, 2011

i'm fed up with these big DSLRs... the weight... the sound ....the big lenses .... all these buttons (i thought iso/speed/aperture was the only technical choice ?)

i need some fresh air. i need simplicity. something that will reminds me of my beloved OM3Ti or my bronica RF645.

I just have to find the money and i hate leica for that.

I hate HDR

Published August 21st, 2011

what is this all about ... i can't stand these technical means that are raised in artistic form ...

It's the same for the holy bokeh ... but in the case of bokeh i can understand the hype cause bokeh is beautiful ....

but all these fucking ugly HDR shots ... come on it's a nightmare for my eyes
