Rangefinder cameras are hot; they’ve gone through a period of glory, then spent time in the darkness, then returned, and now they’ve returned again in one of the biggest ways. The type of camera typically associated with Leica and used as an icon for loads of different graphics is indeed something that most folks would want. Though if you’ve never considered one, then you probably may not know where to start or you may have gotten one or two things wrong. Take some advice from someone whose screwed it up a number of times now.
“I often roamed the city at night, always having my camera, a Leica M6 loaded with high speed 3200 ASA film, with me.”
“Kodak Tri-X is the most famous film of all time, it has a look in it that is easily recognizable.”
“Since typical street shooters need to capture fast-changing moments, the faster the film the better.”
“I try to maintain as close to an analog workflow as possible, minimal gear, minimal choices, allowing me to stay as connected with my surroundings as possible.”
