Lumu App Update and $30 Savings

You may recall, back in September - when we reviewed the Lumu light meter. Today, Lumu has updated the iPhone app (now v2.0) in a big way with a new reflected light meter mode, using only the iPhone camera. There are also optimizations for iPhone 6/6+, note syncing to iCloud, a more accessible multiple measurements view, a prettier side menu and overall improvements and bug fixes. Check out Lumu in the App Store. Plus - for a limited time, you can save 30% on your order by using the "LUMUROCKS" code on checkout, with free shipping and returns!

Scott Williams Reviews the M9

As we've said before, we love these sorts of stories. Scott Williams, a Toronto-based Nikon DSLR shooter - finally realized his own dream of owning a Leica M9 and Summarit-M 35mm f/2.5 lens. So enamored was he, that he wrote a Leica M9 Review. He concludes with, "I really do think that my days as a DSLR shooter are very numbered."

There's just something about Leica's and rangefinders... I can't even explain it, I just love them. Maybe it's the history? Some of the worlds best photographers have used Leica's... Cartier-Bresson, Erwitt, Capa just to name a few. Maybe it's just the lack of automation and options when using a Leica. Either way, it's just fun to shoot with.
