Such Stuff as Dreams are Made on

Here is a breath of fresh air...a digital rangefinder with a Leica M mount and bare bones features, manual focus, aperture setting and speed. Check this out. and 

The Konost promises a digital rangefinder focusing system, unlike the mechanical rangefinder found on the Leica or the Epson R-D1 cameras. The process is best explained here. For rangefinder lovers, this is a welcome feature.

Thank you to William Shakespeare for the title line. And thank you, Dashiell Hammett and Humphrey Bogart.

This is Pascale, photographed with my new Petzval lens. This is an unwieldy lens and I don't recommend it for all occasions. Like street photography. The lens doesn't seem like the right fit for the street medium. But when the weather improves (we are in a cold February as I write this), I will use it as a street lens and see how far we can go with it. Otherwise, this is a fabulous lens and a lot of fun to use. The lens focuses with a forward and backward shifting knob, as opposed to the barrel rotation system. What is really neat is the aperture control. Again, you don't twist the lens barrel ring to get the aperture. You slide aperture templates into a slot at the top of the lens. Pascale will be modeling again soon before this lens. Stay posted.
