Goodbye, hello...

No don't worry, it's still the same blog. It just looks a bit different.

Well dear reader, here's one of the last photos I took with my Leica M9 after its second sensor had cracked (crack in the corner cropped out).

Malaysia, 2 February 2015

I had a longwinded and rather boring story ready about how I traded in my M9 a few weeks ago (when it was in Germany for repair), tired of the sensor problems (ready for its third new sensor in barely 5 years), but who cares. Oh yeah, I now have a Leica M-A (I'm still in the Leica fold, since their lenses are awesome) - no more sensor or electronics, not even a lightmeter built in - and I'm trying film. No results yet, the first roll is still in the camera. It's an impressive machine though, this new M-A, with its smooth velvety black chrome and all mechanical innards... let's hope I know what I'm doing, since I never shot an analogue photo before.

Oh, and if you're attached to DNGMonochrome or DNGDeblur, not to worry. I will keep supporting the DNG software, also seeing the big photo archive I have myself. Next on the list for an upgrade is DNGMonochrome. I can't work on M9Tether anymore, but I don't think that's a big problem, seeing how that program was more or less finished and still does what it needs to do.
