Although I’ve won a few awards with a wedding shot that I took from a bike, I usually don’t shoot while racing on my road bike. I need at least one hand (and preferably two) for handling my bike safely. Also, even though the M is small, it is too big to fit in a cycling jersey pocket.
Enter the Leica T. And the Leica Elmarit-TL 18/2.8. This combination does fit in my jersey and I can operate it with just one hand, using the excellent AF. It takes a bit of practice (and nerves of steel) to shoot a camera while cycling 30+ km/h, but I’d just like to share a few shots from last evening.
Always carry a camera.
