Macfilos author William Fagan is set to deliver a fascinating Zoom presentation on old Leicas on August 19. The talk is available to members of the LHSA, the International Leica Society.
The presentation is aimed primarily at those with smaller collections and photographers who want to have one or two old or vintage Leica cameras to use. However, William says that it will also be of interest to more experienced collectors and users.
‘Old Leicas’ will include LTM and M models from 1925 up to and including the M6. William will present Leicas from different generations in groups of three and will indicate his own personal favourites, which should give rise to varied opinions in the discussion afterwards.
William will indicate some of his favourite films. He will also give tips about using older Leica cameras, in particular about the question of loading LTM models and film trimming in advance of loading.
He will describe various accessories for Leica cameras and their uses – such as viewfinders, lens hoods, cases, close-up equipment and filters.
William is looking forward to sharing his knowledge of older Leicas with enthusiasts in different parts of the world. He has noted a recent increase in the number of photographers of different generations who are using film with older cameras, some of them for the very first time and he feels that the timing of this event is very appropriate.
William’s LHSA Zoom presentation will take place at 7.30 pm, British Summer Time (GMT+1), on August 19, 2020. A link to register for the talk, which is for LHSA members only, is here.
