With these cameras, I started:

Leica M2
Leica M3
Leica M4-P
Leica M6

My first camera was a Rolleiflex 3.5 F 1 Mod with built-in light meter. This camera was equipped nochmit called a sports finder, which enabled me to carry the camera on the eye.As an inexpensive model for Leica M2 M3 in 1958 was presented. It differs in appearance but only in the details of the M3, such as in a manual register or a slightly modified top plate.The Leica M3 was in 1954 the first M-Leica. She had a viewfinder magnification by 0.9-fold and could light reflecting in part for lenses with 50, 90 and 135 mm focal length. Lenses with shorter focal length required either a set or a separate viewfinder viewfinder, which was plugged into the accessory shoe.Based on the Leica M2 was introduced in 1967, the Leica M4 with illuminated frame for four focal lengths. Was first replaced by the rewind crank allow a diagonally mounted and used a new fast charge system, the change of the film in harsh conditions sollte.1981 the successor M4-P was present. It differs essentially from two additional bright-line frames for 28mm and 75mm lenses.With the Leica M6 was the first time integrates a TTL exposure metering into the case of a Leica M4-P, but a TTL flash control was not possible. The simple exposure was achieved by a white dot on the front curtain, the light incident on a cell below the bayonet ring reflected. The test result was indicated by two LEDs in the viewfinder, from which the correct exposure could be set manually.Source: Wikipedia


With this equipment I'm working today:

Nikon D7000

Despite that I have photographed a long time with small cameras, I'm not ultimately in the development of digital cameras come by. My decision to buy the D7000 was due to the fact that I use my old lenses (pictured at left, a Nikon AF-S Nikkor 80-200 f/2.8, pictured right, a Nikon AF-S f/2.8 Nikkor17-35) could. Today I am convinced of the digital photography, with its full potential.
