This was the big 10 for the Kirby Derby. Didn't feel like wresting out the big camera so I dusted off the Leica without even knowing what film was in it. Turns out it was some Ilford Delta that Jen probably gave to me about 300 years ago.* It was refreshing to go back to a manual wind film camera. The pace is so different. I've never thought I was much for spray and pray, but shooting when you have to crank the next frame into place by hand? That'll make you feel like a kid with a Super Soaker.
Not trusting my self to catch any of the actual derby with the Leica, I'd grabbed the LX-5 and had that in my pocket. Okay, and also to feed the instant gratification monkey on my back. I figured this was as good a chance as any to check out the burst mode. It's okay, but it really does force you back into that previously mentioned spray and pray.
The LCD screen doesn't stay live, but rather attempts to process the shots as you take them. When you're panning, that makes things sort of an odd exercise.
*Anybody have any ideas on where to get Ilford processed locally. I'm going to try my old lab from when I was in school, but some back up plans would be great.
