Hiking the Haselstein and the Center of Central Europe

On this hike I car­ried with me three cam­er­as — maybe I should stay at one per hike only, as weight is always an issue. The film one was a Con­tax G2 with its Carl Zeiss Biogon 2.8/28mm attached. I loaded a Kodak Ultramax 400. After the second image the cam­era stopped work­ing due to…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Hik­ing the Hasel­stein and the Cen­ter of Cent­ral Europe

Hiking the Waldnaabtal

On this hike I used two cam­er­as. The film one was a Con­tax G2 with its Carl Zeiss Biogon 2.8/28mm attached. I loaded a Kodak Ultramax 400. The digit­al one was a Sony A7R2 with a M39 Voigtländer Col­or-Heli­ar 2.5/75mm attached. I loaded … a pretty cool sensor ;) The full album can be seen…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Hik­ing the Waldnaabtal

Contax G1 with a Zeiss Planar 2/45mm

This time a beau­ti­ful Con­tax G1 found its way to me, accom­pan­ied by three legendary Zeiss lenses. All parts are in good shape, so let’s see what comes out when the first film is pushed through. On the one side, the Con­tax G‑System (i.e. the G1 and even more its sib­ling the G2) is said…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Con­tax G1 with a Zeiss Planar 2/45mm

Hiking the Burgruine Weissenstein

Between the years we were hik­ing to the Burg Weis­sen­stein in the Upper Palat­in­ates Stone­wood Forest. Dur­ing a snowstorm, in a winter won­der­land, we found the Burg covered by an ice shield. This area is one of my favor­ite hik­ing regions dur­ing all sea­sons. All images were taken with the highly appre­ci­ated Ricoh GR II.…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Hik­ing the Bur­gru­ine Weissenstein

Contax Aria and Yashica ML 2.8/24mm

A first film found its way into my Con­tax Aria — an Agfa Vista 400. As lens I used a Yash­ica ML 2.8/24mm. The Con­tax Aria is a beau­ti­ful piece of tech­no­logy and one of the last SLR mod­els from Con­tax. Tech­nic­al specs can be found here, so there’s no need to duplic­ate them. And…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Con­tax Aria and Yash­ica ML 2.8/24mm

Hiking along the Waldnaab

After Christ­mas A.D. 2017, with all its won­der­ful and exhaust­ive meals, we found time to hike along the small river Wald­naab. Wald­naab / Flutkanal, Ricoh GR II This time I col­lec­ted a hand­ful of black&white bark images — made with the Ricoh GR II — from trees lined up along the small river — or…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Hik­ing along the Waldnaab
