Milan (Italy). This is a sort of “double post”, because it refers to another one – here.
Why a double post? Because today I had the privilege of trying and testing the new Leica SL camera, with its lens Leica Vario Elmarit SL 24-90 mm f/2.8-4.0 ASPH, and I decided to write one post about the camera itself, and another one – this one – about the experience (this photo comes from the backstage).
The event was very well organised: not too crowded and with professional photographers explaining the functions and characteristics of the new Leica SL camera. Participants could test the camera in a professional studio with some lights and a model. At the beginning I was a bit “frightened” by the context and by the situation. Finding myself in a very specialised environment with professional photographers was something of totally new for me, and testing a camera in a fully equipped studio was an unusual experience – I’m much more comfortable on the street, in a museum, or in any case in a more informal environment. But at the end I can say that I’ve really enjoyed this experience, and it’s one of the principal takeaway of today…
As said at the beginning of this post, my feelings about this camera are here.
