The Streets

Stumbled upon a great deal recently on a camera I’ve been battling on getting…

I’m very pleased and humbled to be able to get my hands on it

It is a true work of art and possibly the epitome of the rangefinder camera lineage for 35mm film photography

Later on this week, I will be the proud owner of a Leica M6 🙂

I cannot tell you how badly I’ve wanted to have this camera through the years and now it is truly coming into fruition!

After shooting on Leicas M2 and M3 for so long, I cannot wait to compare the look and feel of hitting the streets with the M6 and the built in light meter

Here is some more info taken from Wikipedia:

The Leica M6 is a rangefinder camera manufactured by Leica from 1984 to 1998.

The M6 combines the silhouette of the Leica M3 and Leica M4 with a modern, off-the-shutter light meter with no moving parts and LED arrows in the viewfinder. Informally referred to as the M6 “Classic” to distinguish it from the “M6 TTL” models, and to indicate its “Classic” M3 dimensions. The top and bottom plates were made from lighter, cheaper magnesium alloy rather than the heavier machined brass of the M3 and M4. The M6 and M6 TTL are mechanical cameras; all functions save the light meter work without batteries, unlike the succeeding M7, which needs electrical power to operate properly.

That’s enough for now, gotta head to work soon.

Talk to everyone later on!
