    That is funny, especially he kept looking at the screen ( I am assuming its digital, too lazy to look any closer ) .

    You see it in the shadows.

    Not anyone who started out with an SLR. Thereafter, some behaviors just become habitual... lol
    Some Nikons (F6, F5x2, F3P, F3HP, F2ASx4, F2A, F2 and a D800), with Ai/Ais Nikkors ranging from 15mm to 600mm; Leicas (M6X2), with Leitz glass from 28 to 90mm and a pair of Hasselblads (500c/ms), with Zeiss glass from 50 to 250mm. A bit of stuff for a no-longer practicing professional, but justifiable for a now-converted hobbyist who absolutely loves taking/making pictures.

    I think he's looking at the settings on the lens.

    Yes indeed, they have that "Leica glow".

    I remember this video from awhile back, I think he was adjusting his aperture, his meter had to be indicating under exposure, even when he opens it up all the way.
