    Q&A: Does the CL work with remote triggers?

    Last week I received this email: Hey Joeri! I’ve been poking around your site for a couple years for now and your insights on the Leica CL have lead me to pick one up for myself back in late 2018. I’m wondering if I can trouble you with a quick question, referencing this post you […]

  • A walk in the park with the Leica T and CL

    A walk in the park with the Leica T and CL

    The more I shoot with the Leica CL, the more I’m starting to love it. With my T (type 701) and the tiny 18 and 23mm lenses, plus a 50 Summicron M with the adapter, there’s a complete kit that is incredibly light and versatile. Of course I much prefer the CL to the T, […]

  • No reason not to bring a Leica T

    No reason not to bring a Leica T

    This week I went for a three day cycling trip to the Veluwe, an interesting area here in the Netherlands. In fact, I didn’t really feel like bringing a camera, because weight and bulk were already ‘maxed out’. I brought a tent, sleeping bag and pad and some extra clothing. Also, I find that it’s […]

  • Shooting the Leica T from a bike

    Shooting the Leica T from a bike

    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 […]

  • The Leica Elmarit-TL 18/2.8 ASPH is here!

    The Leica Elmarit-TL 18/2.8 ASPH is here!

    I have a small update on my adventures with the Leica T (type 701). Yesterday I got the Leica Elmarit-TL 18/2.8 after reading a couple of reviews. It’s not the most popular lens for the APS-C system, but the reason I bought it (without trying it first) is that I think it makes the T […]

  • One shot with the Leica Noctilux-M 75/1.25

    One shot with the Leica Noctilux-M 75/1.25

    Isn’t she gorgeous? I’m afraid I’ve just created an ‘alternative fact’, because this shot wasn’t taken with the new Nocti 75. No, I took it with an ordinary Nocti 50/0.95. Very bourgois indeed. Want to know which camera? Hmm, well, allright: the first version of the Leica T. Very, very unpractical in a setting like […]

  • The Leica T is here

    The Leica T is here

    While everybody is queuing up for the Leica CL, I just received this lovely Leica T from Leica Store Lisse for only 600 euro, including VAT. In the search for the smallest camera possible that is compatible with M-lenses, I came across the first T. When the Leica T was released, I never was really […]
