I traded my Leica lens for another…Leica lens

A new lens is in my bag as for today, but this time, for the sake of my bank account, I’ve not spent any cents. Yeah, it is possible, even for a Leica lens. How can? Easy peasy, I traded one of my Leica lenses for another…Leica lens. An M for an R. Bad or good deal? mmh, to me, for now, very good, but will see in the future… Anyhow, one of my trusted shops here in Luxembourg, Fototrade, showed […]

My new old lens, promising a special bokeh: the Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Oreston 50mm f1.8 (test image gallery)

You know, I have a true passion for old vintage lenses and one of the reasons why I recently switched to the Leica SL is because this camera allows me to use almost any existing lens from the past. I own already several vintage lenses, but not only for collection purpose. Anytime I prepare my bag for a trip around the world, I open my box and I chose one or two vintage lens to carry with me. The advantage of a […]

10 days in Andalusia, with a Leica SL and… A look inside my travel photography bag.

That is my choice: Leica SL

After several weeks of dubbing, googling, reading reviews and watching videos on YouTube, it was enough to have an advice from a very good friend of me, Ryu from Newoldcamera to illuminate the way to choosing the right camera to pair with my Leica M. As already mentioned in the recent post (HERE), I came to the conclusion that the Leica M with the Summicron 28mm ASPH f2 is the perfect camera for the street photos, while I needed a […]

Traveling with a Leica M – my ideal set (VIDEO)

Tonight I gave myself a little last minute “cadeau” to complete my Leica M travel set: the small Skopar Voigtlander 21mm f4 that goes like a complete kit consisting of Summicron M 28mmf 2 ASPH, Summicron M 50mm f2 and Elmarit M 90 f2.8, all on the beautiful Leica M typ 262 Watch the video with the unboxing of the Voigtlander https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tojDEFh0vTM thanks for watching, a presto, Sabino

New lens in my bag: Leica-M Summicron 28 f2 ASPH

In my long process of chasing the perfection, or better, the ideal combination of camera and lenses for my travel photography, today I’ve added an important and crucial masterpiece: the Leica-M Summicron 28 f2 ASPH, replacing the Summicron 35mm f2 ASPH. Given that I’m a very happy Leica user, after my switch from the DSLR world, I’ve decided to sell the ‘cron 35mm and replace it with the ‘cron 28mm, bought from my favourite dealer Newoldcamera in Milan (thanks, Ryuichi!). If you may don’t […]

Finding the Perfect Travel Camera Bag…

Which is the best Travel Camera Bag? or better… how should a perfect Travel Camera bag, be like (if it may ever exist)? This subject can be easily underestimated, but to my opinion, this is the most important items for a photographer, even more than the camera itself, this is the place where all your valuable gears will spend most of the time, protected from any potential damaging element like water, dust, knocks and bumps… There are so many factors that can […]

Photowalk with an old Industar 50-2 on a Leica M

Imagine a lazy Sunday, sunny outside, pleasant temperature, what do you think a normal person would do? Just go outside and enjoy the weather, no? But if you are a person like me, who thinks photography 24 hours per day, you will find for sure something to do with your gears… So I’ve decided to clean and re-organize all my vintage lenses that were somehow sadly abandoned in few boxes due to a recent moving and, as I’m in the mind […]

I’ve found the perfect travel tripod!

Finally, i may say! Well, actually i’m not a frequent user of tripods as i mostly shoot in daytime and i do street photography, but, you know that, when you leave it at home, then it will happen that you really need it. In less than one month i will be in Japan for another amazing photography experience and i want to be as light and comfortable as possible. I my personal process of reaching the perfection in terms of gears, […]
