shooting data :


Panasonic DMC-LX1

lens : 28-112 mm ( 16:9 ) : 28 mm

program auto exposure : - 1.33 EV

manual focussing : 3-6 feet zone setting, 6-15 feet zone setting

shooting mode : continuously

ISO : 80

date : Wed. 23 Aug. 2006

place : the upper deck of my junction station, JR Higashi-Kanagawa station south-east area, Yokohama canal, on the road of Route 15


JR --- Japan Railroad or something

higashi --- east


note :

I used my LX1 on 28 mm with 3-6 feet zone setting and 6-15 feet zone setting.

I used 3-6 feet zone setting for the person.

and I used 6-15 feet zone setting for the canal mainly.


and naturally,

LX1's battery was dead in 2 hours usually.

That was the place just near the main road to my Dai-koku Pier.




my frivolities


I went shooting with LX1 and W5.

W5 was using for the evening and night.

my W5 has f 2.8 and f 5.6.

and my W5 still had made stains on f 5.6 at that night.

but in the night, it is very hard to get f 5.6 naturally.

so I could use my W5 in my Dai-koku Pier with manual exposure for the evening and with auto exposure for the night.


I had to use my W5 by manual focussing with f 2.8.

but I did the normal mistake naturally again.


at first,

I had been shooting my W5 by manual focussing with f 2.8.

and soon I had been shooting my W5 by manual focussing with f 5.6.

and soon later I had been shooting my W5 with auto exposure entirely.

I found it on my Dai-koku Oo-hashi ( big bridge ) in the night.

I had already been shooting over 200 jpgs until then.

My memory stick pro could accept only around 250 jpgs plainly.

I couldn't do my shooting from the evening again.

It had already all been passing.


All the causes had been hidden in my W5's tiny little pushing buttons.

It comes from my frivolities.




Leica M8


my W5 had already come back from SONY for repairing with no cost.


I don't have a need to use my frivolities any more.

the manual exposure setting was not my shooting style naturally.


I had been shooting by manual exposure in my film lording type camera days.

The film lording type camera days could not be coming any more for me probably.

That has two simply reasons,

One is from my monetary reason.

and the other,

Leica had released Leica M8 already.


The most of all someone had been saying like this.

" I only shoot film ! "


The monetary reason person had been using the plastic digital cameras.

With no monetary reason person would be soon using Leica M8 naturally.


I have been simply loved Leica since 1978.

M8 is my too much more more far away dreaming still now.
