With the "M" coming does anyone know how long the Monochrom and how many will be made? I may have used inaccurate information when I explained to my wife why I needed to have one. Opps!

Yes, positively confirmed for your better half.
It's a strictly limited run. After the final deliveries of this batch all tools and machinery will be destroyed.
The very final signup is before X-mas '12. You need to hurry up Jim !

I did get one over Thanksgiving, I'm on 3 waiting lists and wasn't moving. Out of the blue on Thanksgiving I searched on Amazon and what the heck, there was one! Even after buying it I had a sneaky thought my order would be cancelled for lack of product (happened before). Monday following Thanksgivng it was on my desk. That's when I had to explain why I needed another camera! I love it, still learning but I haven't shot anything since. I'm glad I made the purchase.

Jim, it's all worth the hassle and excuse right? Next time, I'll try to remember this "inaccurate" information and put it to good use.

Jim, thanks for your kind words, they are appreciated.

I do not own a MM as of this time, perhaps in the future after making a decision on how much gear I would have to sell to raise the capital. I had the opportunity to borrow a camera from the Leica Rep for an hour a couple months back. The lens I had with me was the 35 lux and did not use a filter.

I only recently have gotten a chance to process the files using Ps6 and NIK software.

@Ashwin - the "Fuel" shot has wonderful bokeh, what lens did you use?

@Carsten - the Nocti's rendering is on a different league, but I think you did a good job capturing her smile.

@Vince - getting warmed up with the monochrom?

@jcrutcher - the smile of Jameson is priceless!

Yes, slowly getting more used to it. My big problem right now is putting myself in situations that enable me to use the darned thing!

My wife and I went out for brunch this morning, and thought I'd take the little beast along...

Mates, isn't it fantastic, we can do this (10000 ISO) now with a M digital?

I mean with the M8 and M9, a film M with pushed Tri-X @ ISO 3200 was my low light camera and I loved Tri-X for this but hated when a roll turned out not quite pushed enough .

Now with the Mono there is a camera, that really eclipses the possibilities of film - this for me is the biggest news about the Mono.

Great shot Dave btw ;-)

Couldn't agree more. I can shoot action on hte street at f/8 and 1/500 of a second. Freeze the action and have DoF so hyper focusing is a lot easier.

A few from the weekend:


look at me man by teknopunk.com, on Flickr


birdie by teknopunk.com, on Flickr


Lamborghini Gallardo - side by teknopunk.com, on Flickr

The Gallardo was parked on a pitch black lonely backyard - shooting ~ISO3200 and 1/4sec was the only way, I could get some shots. I would have shot this on film or a Nikon body in the past ;-)

In the middle of doing a food shoot at my house, and I thought I'd take some 'prep' shots with the Monochrom.

Not much in the way of post-production (they could probably stand a bit of tweaking), and no retouching, all shot at ISO 1000:

More to come!

airfrogusmc, Dave, Dirk and Vince all nice stuff. Vince I can't wait to see the final food product, you left a lot to our imagination..haha.

Off to San Francisco today with M7, M9-P and M-mono, since it's raining and clouding I'm thinking the mono will get a workout, can't wait.
