Got myself one of those Leica m6 rangefinder cameras

I have always wanted one of these Leica m6 rangefinder cameras, but could never justify the price –

The M6 combines the silhouette of the Leica M3 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.

But I have managed to get a Leica within my budget this is a dolls size one 1/6 Scale Camera 🙂


Its tiny and can’t be used of course – but the lens does rotate!

The next camera and lenses on my list are these 1/6 Scale Canons!


So for the time being I will have to keep using my lowly Canon 400D


British Monarchy puts photos up on the Royal Flickr Account

Now that the British Monarchy has joined flickr and are sharing their photos with the world, well a lot of them seem to be from PA or government sources, but it would be good to see personal shots from the Royal Family that they have taken themselves is that not what flickr is about!

Anyway here a shot of the The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall pouring some ale in Neuadd Arms Hotel in Llanwrtyd Wells.

I thought Charles has a Leica so I wonder what his views are on the rise of digital?
