POTD: In the recording studio

Radio is a lot less happening than TV…Leica M9-P, Zeiss ZM 2/50 Planar

Score one for the M9-P, I was able to shoot in discreet mode without anybody noticing, or worse still, having something recorded on the air. In hindsight I probably should have used something totally silent like the Ricoh GR-Digital III, though that wouldn’t have given me enough working distance. MT


  1. Nice shot! I use this Zeiss lens a lot on my M9, I really like it’s rendering, and I think I’ll use discreet mode just to be ready for this kind of shot. Thanks.

    • The profiles actually help – so I’ve got one set up for normal shooting (auto ISO, AE lock on shutter), one for night shooting (fixed ISO, soft release) and one for discreet work (soft discreet release).

      • Thanks Ming Thein, I’ll set up my profiles as per yours and see how it works for me. One soft – One soft discreet -One with AE lock on shutter that I use all the time, and the Auto ISO I used to use on my D700 a lot but haven’t tried on the M9.
        Great Blog, Love your work, thanks for the feedback.

  2. Ciao, nice clean, sharp shot 🙂
