Impressions of the Leica M – Part 3

It may be true that the Leica M is the rangefinder camera you have to experience once in a life time. Leica is the only player at the moment. Epson has previously made the first digital rangefinder RD-1 in 2004, much earlier than the Leica M8 in 2006 but it was not a big success (probably due to pricing and popularity) until its discontinuation in 2007. Later on,...

  If you ask me what cameras I’ve seen in my recent travel to Iceland and Greenland, I have to honestly tell you that there were not many different brands. In general, the travellers care about their travel a lot, so do the camera they use to record things they see. These days we have seen plenty of DSLR kits from hanging on the necks of many on beaches...
