Paradox, isn't it? You splurge on the latest and greatest, which then piques your interest in antique technology. You actually consider going back to film, manual focus and metering and (horrors!) manual winding (not that I have EVER been there). All this just to recapture the purity of the dawn of photography. My wife had to slap me when she caught me gazing lovingly at the cameras displayed outside Alley Photo in Centrepoint.Originally posted by Red Dawn
rueyloon - i think i know wat u mean....i found myself staring at various Leica and Bessa models today, together with their associated (expensive) lenses
i think i was there 45 mins....definitely treading on dangerous grounds
They're so COOL! But then I'd have to grow a goatee and a ponytail and wear sunglasses, a photographer's vest and maybe black leather pants to complete the "artistic" look, when I carry that Leica around.
