    I knew I did it, have you done it too?

    I was out doing some street photography with my M2 and pulled up this rangefinder to capture a woman sitting on a bench in a small town reading a book. A small girl was walking by and I took the shot.

    Walking back to the car I was internally proud of the shot until I opened the car door and was putting the camera in its bag when I noticed I had a 90mm mounted on the camera and I just knew I had used the entire 35mm frame lines to capture the image and I was very close to the action.

    So I knew I did it, shot the wrong #$%^& frame lines on a unique unrepeatable moment. Have you done this too?

    I admit I have slipped up a few times with the lens cap on, or a finger in the frame with RF's lol.

    I recently learned never to put a lens cap on a rangefinder unless it's for storage. Ask me how I know...
    And the sign said, "long haired freaky people need not apply"

    No, I never do that, ever. Not me. Oh no.

    I do frequently pick up a camera and realise there is still a part used film in it.

    Curious just how many times the film actually in the camera is quite different to the film I think is in the camera.

    So, I just might admit to shooting a lot of colour images at 100 ISO... on HP5+

    I rarely change lenses so I haven't made that mistake, but I have forgotten the lens cap on a few times and got a bunch of "finger shots" with my 21mm...

    Yet another reason to just stick to a Summicron 35. :-)
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Lee,
    the shot might went fine even with the 90mm.
    Some M's with their "all on" frame lines might lead to such surprises.

    No I leave the lens cap on my S.L.Rs, and think I've gone blind .

    Not having a rangefinder I've not done that one, nor the lens cap. But I have popped open a camera to put a roll of film in only to discover it's already loaded....
