I recently got a Leica M3 rangefinder camera. I’ve been shooting with it the past month and getting to know the camera. I’ve loved nearly every moment I’ve had this camera in my hand. It’s fun to use and it just plain looks cool.
Loading film into this camera is not like any other camera. If you’ve ever loaded film into a camera, you’re probably used to the back the camera swinging open like a door and you load your film in that way. On this camera you take the bottom off and slid the film up! So weird. Anyhow I made a video of me loading the film for the first time and it went about as good as you might expect haha. I’ll add that video at the bottom of this post.
Once I had my film sorted I figured I’d better make a proper video of me shooting some photos with the camera. I did just that on Friday and I think the video turned out pretty good, give it a watch if you like that sort of thing.
Thanks for stopping by, Rob
