Camera quirks

Why oh why can’t there just be a perfect camera? Why must every camera have at least few annoying little quirks?  I’m a big believer in the idea, that a camera should not get in the way of photography. I practise using my cameras in the back yard, because I…

Is Leica a good beginner’s camera?

Just in case you’re wondering whether a Leica is a good beginner’s camera, I’m here to advise. And the answer is — heck no!  I can honestly say that probably in 95% of the time, a Leica wouldn’t be the best choice for a novice film shooter. I’ve been into…
