    If you think the latest digital camera offering is expensive, think again. That is why collectors have been gunning for Leica Cameras.

    There’s a new record for the world’s most expensive camera: a Leica 0-Series camera, which was a 1923 prototype for the groundbreaking Leica A, the first commercially successful 35mm compact camera sold at WestLicht Photographica auction in Vienna for €2.16 million (about $2.8 million).

    It was one of just 25 models created, 12 of which are known to have survived. Bidding started at $390,000, but in the course of 4 minutes offers reached $2.3 million The camera was bought by an anonymous bidder.

    The previous record was also held by a 0-Series Leica which fetched 1.32 million euros ($1.7 million) in 2007.

      Money wasted. But what can we say, its his money. I never understood why people collect old stuff other than the fact that they wanna sell it later at higher price. Good business thought. Bought with 2.8 mil. Keep it for few more decades and sell it at 5 mil. Who knows..

  • Exposure Blending and Refining The Edge.
    I'm sure many of you have seen pictures especially Landscapes. The Transition between Sky and Foreground. The Bright and the Dark transition. If you look carefully,you will notice a carefully processed one and the less careful. The Less careful ones are the halos which some may say its ok. To me its not natural to look. That is what I wish to perfect. What I'll be sharing here is to reinforce what I understand…it took me quite awhile to digest. I'm not perfect.Its troubling me for some time. Having A GND Filter or No Filter method? As long as it gets the job done faster choose which workflow you feel comfortable with. In the end is the final outcome of the picture. Below will be in a series and breaks here,through pictures and explanation. I myself can return for reference and comprehend if I forget the steps. I don`t write it down or explain I will forget.

  • Sony Alpha 7 only manages to get a Silver Award

    This is the technical tests that many photographers have been waiting for. The Sony Alpha 7, the smallest full frame mirror-less digital camera. Many have raved about its capability. See how does it stand to a technical review by Dpreview.

  • Soaring like an Eagle ... and Flying with the wind
    A couple of weeks ago I started a brand new love affair. I want to soar like an eagle and fly with the wind. I've started training to qualify for a licence to fly a Powered Paraglider. You put a motor with a prop on your back, harness yourself to a parachute wing, start the motor, run a short take off run from almost anywhere, and then fly off into the sunset like below : The Paraglider itself is an amazing subject to shoot: Apart from the adrenalin rush associated with when you put your life at risk, the aim is to shoot photos from a perspective not usually available to most people. Here's a combo selfie while flying a powered paraglider over Pulau Indah, and a photo o...
