The M4

with 9 comments

Spending a roll with a buddy’s Leica M4 last week solidified my love for rangefinder cameras. Unfortunately, I was nearly out of film when I headed out with the M4, but I was able to dig up one last roll of Lomography XPRO (no, not that XPRO) Chrome, the same stuff I used to shoot the Lomokino Movie Maker. Good enough.

This camera is refreshingly mechanical. No meter, no nothin’ electronic. Tons of fun:

I think I may be in the market for a film Leica M after shooting the M4. :)

  1. These are incredible. The quality is so crisp and detailed. Almost doesn’t even look like film! How did you get your hands on one?

  2. I have to agree with the previous comment, crisp clear pictures very detailed I’d never have guessed you’d used film.

  3. Using a classic is always great. The M series Leica has and always will be a great camera. Their design was durability and working in close, a delight for the photojournalist. Nice shooting too!

  5. Oh man, I would love an M. You must be a pro at the range finder. I found it so challenging but your focus is bang on.

  8. These are beautiful, even with the weird film. The Suki pics are my fave, of course!
