Today CM introduced us to the, it appears to me, arcane world of the range finder.
After a comprehensive briefing we were able to take some shots. My observations are in no particular order:
- Fiddly and awkward
- Slow to prepare
- No intrinsic light metre
- Focus from 2 meters
- Film (other digital options are available)
- Very fast lens
- Sharp focus (potentially see point 2)
Obviously these types of camera have produced extraordinary shots and are still doing so today in experienced hands.
LP-Personally I am struggling to find them a place in my workflow. To do so I am going to have to put in some serious time.
