2008 PAW 40

Filed under: PAW 2008,Photography — at 3:49 pm

This week has been characterized by running a couple of cameras through their paces … and remembering cameras tucked away in a closet. The Kiev 4a was mentioned on the Leica Users Group (LUG) and I decided to take mine with me to Odense. I was lucky enough to be able to meet up with Rebecca, in Copenhagen, on my way back home:


Thas was with a Kiev 4a, Jupiter-8m, wide-open, at 1/25.

I also got two cameras back from repairs. I had purchased a camera that I used to dream about 30 years ago, a IIIG, and my M2 was due for a new shutter. I had also gotten a 50/2.8 Elmar (LTM) from a member of the LUG a couple of years ago. It was sharp enough, but contrast was suffering from haze between the inner elements so I sent it along with the bodies to get it cleaned up.

I was more concerned with seeing how the contrast held up rather than sharpness. These two were taken outdoors with the Elmar at f8:

The next one was taken wide-open (f2.8):

Poor Ewa can never eat in peace when I’m home.

On Friday evening we went out to eat at a restaurant that is a fixture in Göteborg, Kometen (The Comet). They specialize in schnitzel. These were taken with a 35 Summicron on the M2, 1/15 @ 2.0 and the last one at 1/8 @ 2.0:

This early in the month there’s not a lot more, but there are a couple of others in the shoebox for October.
