Grüner See

What would a photographer do if he  would suddenly need to carry an ever moving child on his back to every location he would take photos? Of course he would use the new situation in order to justify a new purchase of a lens for the sake…

Gábor, Leica M9 P, Carl Zeiss Sonnar 50mm f/1.5 ZM

M9 + Sonnar vs M2 + Planar

Two friends with the same passion to photography, both using rangefinder cameras almost indistinguishable from the distance. The cameras are matched with fast 50mm lenses from the same brand and color. Sounds like these photographers or at least their choice of gear are quite the same. While this…

Mr John Gunn from John Gunn Camera Shop (Dublin 2015), Leica M2, Zeiss C Sonnar 50mm f/1.5 @ f/2, Fuji Xtra 800, Epson V700

John Gunn Camera Shop

As you may have noticed I have never written a post about any camera shops or labs I visited. There are many reasons behind this starting from the fact that most of them are quite uninteresting and ending with my intention to not make advertisements…

My film collection

Just about a week ago I was called by the reception at work that a package arrived with my name on it. I was genuinely surprised, because I have never received anything unexpectedly at work. Who on earth would have sent me a package and…
