Leica M-P 240 upgrade from M9 rolling review #2

May 08, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I'm getting used to the new M-P 240 it's a wonderful camera. I have set up four user profiles that fits how I shoot and it's been great to switch back and fourth for certain situations. I guess I have been used to the center weighted average metering in the M9 because I ahve set everything to that setting. Using the sensor metering makes a weird sound as it re-cocks the shutter release. I don't like it. So I don't use it. I really like the thumb wheel for scrolling through the menu items, blowing up images to check for sharpness etc. I have used Live View a few times and feel like I need the EVF to really enjoy looking through the sensor. The color has been really great. For a guy that leans toward B&W I have been very impressed by the CMOS sensor in this camera. The lenses make the color look a little different from my Canon images which of course are also CMOS images. The images below were made with the M-P 240 of the Cape Ann Tool Co. in Rockport. It has had this orange insulation on the metal since it closed a long time ago. I remember the familiar loud thumping coming out of this forging operation way back in the 60's when the wind was blowing toward Annisquam. I have made a few images of the outside of this building before but only in B&W. Yesterday I came home a different way and the low light and shadows were playing across the front of the orange building making some very interesting images. Here are a few.
