Lately I've been shooting pictures with old, crappy cameras. It's fun to push these machines to their limit.
I wondered what would happen if I used a good camera. A new one, not used; modern, not vintage. It's a challenge of a different sort.
So I just bought a fancy new camera. I'm not disclosing its brand or price; just know that it has a Leica lens. Leica, a German company founded in 1869 -- that's 18-69 -- makes the best glass lenses in the world. Everyone agrees on that. The lenses in my crap cameras are cheap plastic.
I took my new baby out today for a stroll. Casual shots, nothing fancy. No tripod, no preparation; just want to see what she's capable of.
Wow! Sharp images. Rich colors. I'm pleased with the initial results.
