Here is the Lot:
with MX winder
naglalaway pa din ako condoman gusto ko pa din ng om1 LOL nung isang araw pagkagising ko olympus om1 lang ang nasa isip ko haha
oo nga eh. haha kulang na lang mapanaginipan ko sa sobrang kagustuhan ko haha
letting go of my lomography spinner 360 and digitaliza para makabili ng bakal cameras! yey! ngayon lang ako naging excited magbenta ng camera haha
Nabenta ko na ang apat na camera ko - all with electronics in them. Baka isang araw di na umandar ang camera dahil sira na yung electronics. Yung F4 ko na binenta, bigla na lang nagkalat ang LCD niya sa loob. Wala akong nakitang replacement LCD. Ayun binenta ko ng palugi.
Puro manual camera na bakal na lang ako. At least walang circuits na masisira. And most of these cameras are designed to last for generations. Ika nga hindi disposable.
^manual cameras lang din gusto ko.. hindi ko masyadong trip yung may electronics iba kasi yung tunog haha chaka yung feel. basta! hahaha
Nice looking pics!
Question: I just "unearthed" a Canon Rebel G unit fitted with a 55-80mm lens. any feedback on this SLR?
1) all are full manual focusing rangefinders
2) all can use Leica M bayonet mount lenses
3) all have the same dimensions
Now for the differences and prices (all are without lenses):
M3 - the first M camera made from 1954-1968. Leica made more of the M3s than any other Leica camera. It has the largest, brightest and clearest viewfinder of the three. Depending on condition, used Leica M3s go anywhere from US$650 to collector's editions costing tens of thousands of dollars. Average price for a good condition, fully functional M3 on ebay runs from 800-1200.
M6 - non TTL made from 1984-1998 and TTL version made from 1998-2002. It has two versions, with the earlier one (called Classic M6) having no TTL metering and the second version with TTL. Prices for the classic M6 range from $900- to over $2000 depending on condition. The TTL version and the titanium version plus the other commemorative versions cost even more.
MP - made from 2003 to 2006 (?) and this version came after the M7, and is Leica's last film camera. It represents a step backward for some. For example, it doesn't include TTL flash metering, which the M7 and M6 TTL have. It is the same size as the M6 classic and shares the same features. In fact some have called it the M6-P. Prices start at over $2000 and goes up to astronomical heights. This camera can still be bought new.
Most of the Leica Ms were made in Germany but some were made in Canada.
Yep. I just realized that Leicas are all but for the riches.
Siguro mga tatlong taon kong bubunuin bago makabili ng second hand (or maybe brand new)?
Does anybody here have any idea what brand is somehow at par with Leica?
When it comes to longevity and serviceability the Leica is tops. You can send off a 1957 Leica to a Leica service center and they can still repair it. It is expensive because a lot of people collect it, not because it produces the best images.
Actually it is the Leica lens more than the body that is coveted. According to many, the Leica 50mm Summicron M, Dual Range lens represents the pinnacle of lens maker's art. The uber expensive 50mm Noctilux with Leica M9 is also popular among the rich and nouveau rich. Does it take better pictures than the Nikon D3X or Canon 1D or the Canon 5D? Nope.
If on a tight budget, you can always buy a Leica body copy, for example, FEDs, Zorkis, Zeiss, Voigtlander, etc... and use the Leica lens. Or not. The Feds and Zorkis are much cheaper and you can buy them on sulit.com.ph. In fact you can get a lot of rangefinders on ebay or sulit.
What some people do is buy a digital camera (Sony Nex5 or 7, Panasonic, etc.. and buy the Leica Lens adapter for the lcamera. My friend used a Leica Summicron on his NEX5 and the images were quite good.
If you want sharp pictures, look to digital. If you want the old school look, use a film rangefinder. But if you want a different (not better) way of taking photos, try a Leica (or any other rangefinder).

Thanks for the link. I think what Camp is trying to explain and compare is the output of Leica vs. DSLR. I am in no position to critique the Leica capability nor its advantages/disadvantages with other models since I never own one of such kind. But then again, this was the brand used by some renowned French photographers of the last century, including Doisneau and Cartier-Bresson (if I'm not mistaken with the latter).
Thanks for the heads-up. At least I have a gist on what to invest for next year.
FED's or Zorki's body and then attached a Leica film rangefinder, right?
This might nurture the creativity within you: http://www.filmsnotdead.com
nice name! Film's not dead. I would like to try this as well! Yung parang class sa Ramon Magsaysay, may nakaattend na ba noon dito?
If you have a bit more money, buy a Voigtlander Bessa, Zeiss Ikon or Contax rangefinder. The proprietary lenses of these German cameras are also very good, and some of their lenses are comparable or better than some Leica lenses. If you just want a rangefinder, there are many made by Nikon, Olympus, Canon, and other Japanese brands. Please note that compatibility with Leica lenses could be a problem.
As to Fed and Zorkis, they are much cheaper than German made cameras, but I cannot vouch for their durability.
