Personal Leica M240 and Leica Q

  MY very own Leica M240 and Leica Q After 6 months…The Leica M240 is a status symbol that can cut both ways. Personal advice, since I have been using one with ALL the options on, even to the leather colors is to think of the price. In dollars, it will cost $10,000 sgd to have it functional. Add another $10,000 to make it useful. Minus 20% off all if you can find a good used piece. It is so powerful and mind bending as a tool, that it will now split my main hobby (which I was not good at), which is photography into my blog. It is flowing with enough, more than overkill, in educational content, to me at least….to make my blog almost free of words…yes..I am going to try minimal for a while. BUT I will photograph my unusual encounters,boring...

Greubel Forsey IP1 platinum under 2:1 macro by LAOWA 60mm

Greubel Forsey IP1 Greubel Forsey IP1 The Greubel Forsey IP1 platinum is in the closing years of the age of the superlative hand made, most costly, most rare watches, the sincerely most valued. Without the embalmed values of diamonds and such… Valued for hand made. An age which is to end. Greubel Forsey and Sincere Fine Watches present ‘More To It Than Meets The Eye’ Horological Meandering 2006 The IP1 in platinum of 11 pieces, and gold in 22…are, will be, the most documented, verified, as teutonic and Germans can be…no secret editions…always a pain to discover a decade or even 10 later! Now, more than 2013 to 2016…as Tag reintroduces the world to what the Chinese in Beijing have been doing since 2006…the tourbillon...

Leica M240, Pentax 645 on Greubel Forsey

Leica M240, Pentax 645 on Greubel Forsey Leica…but then http://www.kenrockwell.com/pentax/645d/I’ve been using this Pentax 645D for two years. Only the Leica M240 and the Sony’s ability to share all my Summilux, crons, etc..moved me to request for a Sony. Unlike my Greubel Forseys, I don’t pay for cameras…only the Leica I have to buy. My previous cameras were 4×5 film systems, Pentax 67 and the Mamiyas. I moved to digital Canon 1Ds for quite a number of years, enough to produce 3 paid books. So…this is NOT a review of cameras, just a sharing. In case people/readers are thinking of FULL FRAME and/or BIGGER. I am not a pro. I am not even a GOOD knowledgeable photographer…BUT I am a REAL 99% of the market, I guess, and...

GREUBEL FORSEY IP 1, Vision 30, 8 years on

Greubel Forsey Greubel Forsey. Is the best , MOST EXPENSIVE, investment, statement of wealth object (yacht, supercar, football club etc). I have brought RM, PP, Dufour, Daniels, Journes, and AP to this debate. http://bernardatdermawan.blogspot.sg/2013/08/the-number-of-rolex-and-omega-watches.html 2006, at the Opus 6 reveal, I was beaten. Years back, I bought my FIRST GF. Clint Eastwood, “A man’s got to know his limitations” The Greubel Forsey Invention Piece 1, second hand. I doubt many collectors who have reached this ( self proclaimed) Olympian level, buy their FIRST GF as a platinum IP 1. But I did. After 18 months of photos and close study…I bought the next one, a new 24/25 single incline platinum white. For non watch people, what I had done, was...
