RIP Leica Camera

Bulls Head In the midst of all the summer madness, we’ve had a sad development at Ice cream Ireland. My brother-in-law, visiting from Germany, accidentally threw my Leica digital camera into the sea. I am very sad, and my food photos will definitely suffer. It seems the model is sold out and it will be October until the next generation comes out. I’m back to the old Minolta until I can figure out a replacement…

    oh. my. god.

    not to be impolite, but how does one accidentally throw a camera into the sea? (if it’s too painful to recount, i understand.)

    tho i would point out that your non-leica photos are still lovely

    Too painful is right! The Minolta is not bad, but what the Leica had was such vivid and true colours…

    Hi there, I heard about your Leica incident. I don’t know if you know, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1 is the same camera, just rebadged. It’s still available, currently costing about £280. Great website, btw, I’ve now GOT to go and buy an icecream-maker! Any recommendations?

    Thanks for that. Actually they are not quite identical – manual focus, etc, in Leica only. But Panasonic is coming out with the DMC-LX2, which seems to be quite the same, plus 10 megapixels instead of 8 and hopefully solving the noise, which was a problem… I guess I have to wait and see! As for ice cream makers, the question is not so much brand but whether the refrigeration is built in. Suggest getting one without first if you have a freezer big enough for the base. We used a little Magimix…
