Leicas are very nice!ChrisinHove wrote:I used to love Agfa Scal b&w transparency film. I was lucky enough to have a Leica (pre mortgage, pre kids etc etc) and the tonality through the Leica glass was just lovely - and far exceeded my capabilities to exploit it!Water Bug wrote:Agreed! My comment was in regards to black and white photography in general, but especially 35mm film. I still prefer the fun and results of film photography. One reason I bought a digital SLR was because film was starting to get harder to find, the selection of what was available was getting smaller, and/or it was getting harder to find someone to develop it... also, the digital SLR I have provides full-frame/35mm capability, which was a big selling point for me.awa54 wrote:I find that few digital cameras capture the same feel as film B&W does.Water Bug wrote:Nice pictures indeed! Black and white photography can be a beautiful thing and a wondeful work of art.
Not to knock black & white images made on a digital, I just shot way too many rolls of Plus X and Tri X to be completely satisfied with digital monochrome.
Nice tries at that! And, the more you try, the better you get.i am travvy wrote:well i tried lol
Did you have to adjust the ISO to pull the shot off, or was the camera automatically making ISO adjustments for you?i am travvy wrote:Thank you!
All of the pictures were handheld. I was using my 50mm 1.8, f5.6 I beleive with shutter speeds from 1/100 to 1/1000
I believe you'll find the 70-300mm to be a fun lens to use.i am travvy wrote:My iso was at 100 on those shots.
The 50 1.8 is absolutely my favorite lens. I only have 3 to choose from but I usually always grab the 50. I'm going to be going to Disney with the girlfriend Monday and can't wait to do some "street" photography with it. I also hope I can take out the 70-300 and finally give it a go.
