I picked up a Leica CL and a Summicron C-40mm from our local camera store. I shot 2 rolls of film, Superia 400 and TX400. I am pretty amazed how small this lens is.
On a very sunny and unusual warm weather before christmas 2015, we decided to visit the small town Staufen, 30 minutes away from Freiburg. Staufen im Breisgau is a German town in the Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald district of Baden-Württemberg. It has a population of approximately 7,600 inhabitants. It is noted in history and culture for its association with Dr Faustus who, according to legend, sold his soul to the Devil.
I continued my ongoing project about handcrafted japanese teapots in Tokoname, Aichi. On a late afternoon I went out for a walk and took some "non touristic shots" with my Leica M4p and Summicron 35mm, loaded with TX400. Many thanks to Mr. Bergs @ MeinFilmLab who greatly supported this project!
In the last few months I was fortune enough to test a few 35mm film compact cameras. They were easy to handle and fun to use but at the end I was happy to get out with my Leica M3 or M4P again. But every compact had their own signature.
I went out and thought about doing a quick comparison on using a roll of Kodak Ektar 100 versus a digital filmsimulation of this film stock. The Ricoh GR has a great fixed lens, giving you a view of 28mm. I mounted the Elmarit 28mm on my Leica M4p, which is also a great performer.
