Tom Abrahamsson of RapidWinder.com It is almost never that an inventor improves on a Leica product so that it is better than the original Leica product. Tom holds that distinction with his RapidWinder for Leica M rangefinders -- a bottom mounting baseplate trigger advance. In addition Tom manufacturers other Leica accessories such as his very popular Soft Release and MiniSoftRelease shutter releases. Tom is well known as one of the true Leica rangefinder experts, even by Leica. IMPORTANT READ THIS: CWE Forum hosts have moderation powers within their forum.

RFF meet-up in Vancouver in April 6-9? Tom A

Hi all,

I will be in Vancouver, BC to attend the Tom A. Celebration of Life on April 7. Any chance we can form an RFF meet-up (walk, talk, eat, photograph, etc.) April 6-9? Be great to see you while I am in Vancouver then. I am staying at Best Western hotel, 1100 Granville Street-downtown. Thanks, Bob

While I did not know Tom (my loss!), I followed his ramblings on RFF as a chance to learn not only about photography but life! He will be miss. Please pass on my condolences to his family!!
