This is a GREAT camera
It’s been 2 days of intense shooting on the streets.
Switching settings, testing functionality, custom configurations, and seeing what this camera really capable of.
I see now that i was just scratching the surface when i said i had a good grasp on the camera.
Here some images i took recently:
This is such a great camera for street photography.
I can’t stress enough how great rangefinder size cameras are for hitting the streets
After spending some hardcore time with this camera, (carrying it with me everywhere) I’m finding the settings that work best for me with my style of shooting.
I use a high shutter speed since not only are my subjects moving most of the time, but i am as well. A fast shutter would catch movement very well
Since my shutter speed is so high, i chose to open my aperture up quite a bit
Here are the settings I’ve been using on camera:
When using Zone Focusing like i am most of the time, you really need to be precise with how far whatever you’re shooting is at these settings.
I’ve been practicing gauging feet and distance from when i shoot with my Leica M cameras so this felt like something familiar for sure
At F4, you don’t have too much room to nail the focus of your subject but it can be done with practice.
Or just use Autofocus, which is ok and pretty fast but i believe Zone Focusing makes it way quicker for me to get shots off especially when moving around on the streets.
Oh! and by the way, the Macro Mode is pretty good also
