There haven't been this much sunshine and warm weather in Finland for as long as I can remember, which is excellent.



We spent most of my two week vacation in remote locations with my family.  Remote meaning mostly no electricity or running water. That also meant I ran out of batteries and missed a lot of shots because of poor battery life of the M9.



I shot maybe two frames with 15mm and the rest of the vacation with Noctilux wide open at f/1.0 using 3 stop ND filter because of the bright conditions. I should just glue the aperture ring to f/1 since I never seem to stop down.



I continue to be impressed about the M9 jpg files. The colors are excellent and best since the original Canon 5D which I liked a lot in terms of colors and tones. Those files files felt like Kodak Elite Chrome slide film. Nikon D700 files had a totally different feel to them and felt more like some C41 film which I generally don't like.

  1. Those are amazing shots. There is still definitely nothing quite like spending a vacation so close to nature.
