    Your Magic Bullet Stories...

    The best tip i was ever given when I was running Epson printers 4800, 7800 etc to stop nozzle blocking (as they where spectacular at getting blocked nozzles), was buy a USA company that specialised in fixing them. the solution was to put s small plastic container in the printer near the print...

    Always read the requirements for any competition, exhibition etc...

    Just a cautionary tale for anyone entering prints or framed images into competition or exhibition. A client has had me print and frame 20 images for exhibition at a venue, to his specifications (and at a not insignificant cost) AR glass and museum board. He delivered them to the venue to be...

    Anyone bought a Leica M (any digital model) then sold it? Why?

    This is turning into the 50th thread, as I just purchased the Leica SL for my upcoming 50th in October... I have never used any of the film Leica Ms as film is just not for me, the SL for me totaly fits the bill, especially with how it handles the M lenses, the M digital series would have to...

    Anyone bought a Leica M (any digital model) then sold it? Why?

    I had an M9, which I loved but I really struggled with the rangefinder focusing, I persivered with it for a while but just couldnt nail it, so sold it. I have since (3 weeks ago) bought a used Leica SL and the Leica SL - M adapter, so I can now use the M lenses on the SL, and benifit from focus...

    Mount card colours choice(s) to better suit the subject?

    Thats the big kicker you do what you want with your photographs, but as soon as you sell them / part with them, you loose all control and all bets are off with what happens to them. One persons decor is another persons meaningful image, asthetics or emotion or both. I have stopped trying to...

    An adventure into framing.

    They have a very small amount of adjustment, but if they are well worn, its a machining job to get them back to servicable condition, if the previous overner(s) havent bothered lubricating them they do wear.

    An adventure into framing.

    You wont get many people willing to ship them, they are just heavy, they would need to be pallet shipped. If you buy one, check there is not excessive play in the head slides ( vertical and horizontal ), as excessive play will result in bad cuts.

    An adventure into framing.

    You can pick a used morso up for around £200-£300, usually with a couple of pairs of blades, just make sure the blades have at least 1/2" of edge on them, that way you will get pleanty of re-grinds out of them.

    Leica SL - What lenses do you use with your Leics SL

    Having spent some more time with the SL 50 1.4 & SL 24-90, I have decided to use M lenses, they are just more user friendly in the weight department, they have stunning picture quality, but the weight of them is considerable. So im using the Leica M 24mm f/2.8 ASPH, which I find great for walk...
