Happy New Year 2009!
It’s time to put some pics again to this blog. It seems that I’ve been a good boy last year as Santa brought me a dream come true Christmas present - a Leica D-LUX 4. My first Leica! This might be one of the best compact size cameras out there at the moment. And it is a true Leica! I’ve always wanted to get one, so here we go.
I won’t be going to the technical side of this camera, there are other sites for that. Instead I’ll be posting pics more frequently. It seems I hardly ever bother to carry my DSLR with me, so I’ve promised myself to have my Leica with me where ever I go. The beautiful brown leather case protects very well it and it fits in the pocket of my winter jacket. Perfect.
Quality of the JPG’s seems very good. Here’s a pic from a cafe in the middle of Frankfurt. I haven’t done any editing to this picture except resized it smaller. Click for a larger version.
Another Cafe. I drink my daily double espresso always here. I’ve focused on the painting.
For years I’ve been drooling at the window of the Leica Gallery Frankfurt. It is a very sophisticated camera shop which sells only Leica cameras and holds regular photography exhibitions upstairs. Few days ago, I just had to walk in and asked to see the D-LUX 4. I’m sure you can guess the rest. Within 20 minutes I walked out with a lovely shopping bag from Leica Gallery.
I can highly recommend this shop to any Leica enthusiast. It’s a must see place if you visit Frankfurt. The seem to have just about any Leica available from vintage collectors items to modern Leicas, books, peripherals etc.
