Mike discovers a tiny Cold War spy camera that can be worn on the wrist. The Tessina 35 was the smallest 35mm camera ever made and a fine example has come in from the cold at London's Portobello Road market. Read how to spend £500.
Excitement this Saturday morning in London. It's the first outing for the new Leica M-D and Adam Lee has come along as well to give us some film I input. We are here at Leica Store Mayfair borrowing an M-A to take out for the day. Comparisons later.
It’s surprising how much use I’m being able to make of many of my older shots after sifting through the archives and enhancing some of the material that hasn’t stood the test of time very well.

The Woolwich Leica story by Mike Evans last week reminded me that I, too, have a copy of The Leica Manual; in my case this is a 1937 edition which I keep on my iPad for reference.
