Leica M8 Price

Digital Leica M cameras always looked out of my reach when I used to use a Nikon DSLR.  Just too expensive.  A new digital Leica camera cost is still is crazy expensive for the majority of the population (including myself!).  The good news is as time passes the older Leica M bodies become cheaper and more affordable.  A Leica M8 price is now less than many used DSLR cameras.  The M8 still offers the Leica quality and you can use your Leica film camera lenses on it.  I still enjoy Leica M8  wedding photography today and clients seems to love the look (see my Leica Wedding blog posts).

Mamiya RZ67 Photos – Model Photography

Mamiya RZ67 Photos – Medium format film photography model shoot with Nella and my Mamiya RZ67 Pro II. For this shot I used the Mamiya Sekor 65mm f4 WA lens which is super sharp. No sharpening needed in PP.

Photo is a Epson V600 scan of the Kodak TMax 400 negative home developed in a brew of 3:1 Xtol and Rodinal at 20 degrees standing for 23 minutes without agitation.

Mamiya RZ67 Pro II Camera

The medium format Mamiya RZ67 film camera is currently my go to camera for any key shots whether wedding photography or model photography. My Nikon D800 gets the rest and light meters for the Mamiya.
