One of the best features of the Leica M system is it’s size and weight. This makes for the perfect travel camera, but mind you: if you carry six lenses, two bodies and a tripod, your bag will still be very heavy. So the key for a perfect travel bag is to take as little as you can. One body, one or two light lenses and no tripod. This picture was taken in Prague with a shutter speed of 0,5 seconds. Not handheld of course, but pressed against a solid piece of stone on that bridge. If you’re creative enough to ‘see’ the pictures, you’ll be creative enough to find something to replace your tripod as well.
