 Great shots, great story! Who needs that DSLR to get good shots? I guess it's the same as with bikes; it's the rider that makes the difference.

 To me, a Leica rangefinder with a wide prime lens is like a totally dialed custom hardtail, while a DSLR is like a full suspension bike straight out of the box. It may perform better, but it's not as elegant or exciting.

 @scmalex: I like that analogy... but in terms of performing better, I would just say they're different tools for different purposes.

 @nvonf: I fully agree, but I meant my analogy specifically in the context of pro sports photography and on a purely technical basis. The truth is that the camera doesn't matter too much, it's more about the artist... or rider Wink

 I love mountain bike and I love photography, but I choose to photograph something very different than bikes....

 This is a legitimate post containing photographs produced by a mountain biker. Why the necessity to down vote? It's somewhat related and it's interesting.

 Damn that's a damn fine gear he's packing. German perfected the hand held range finder with Leica. Too bad it costs the same as a high end mountain bike with top of the line components.

Can't wait to see episode 3~

 A little different composition for the eyes, I like it. Though I believe the best use of B/W is encompassed in Marco's photo.

 Are these scans or photos of photos? If the latter, the sharpness of the photos is amazing. Great photoset.

 They look like digital scans direct from the negatives. These days when you get film developed you can get it on a CD in high res format. That's what I tend to do as it is cheaper and you can evaluate the shots properly and just print the ones that don't suck (so about 1 in 50 for me)

 Shots look good but I would have rather seen scans of the prints. Half the art of B&W is the printing.

Looks as though he needed to use an orange or red filter.

 Beautiful. Thanks ex why.

 Instead of a camera talking about 1 lens and 1 focal length, it should be a bike with 1 gear.

 Anton is racing elite this year I believe, so it'll be interesting to see how he goes against the big boys. Bonus is we'll finally get red bull coverage of him racing

 The thing is you can shoot great pictures with a calculator if you are passionate abut it. Gear never limits passion.
