Let's inspire us with your nice black paint. Each BP's brassing is different and that's the sweetest thing. ;thumbup;

Me first. M4 orginal BP + Sonnar 50/1.5


Taken before CLA yesterday.  ;hee;

haha, my MP was gone. That's why I got this M4 BP. My ultimate goal is a BP M2. Need to use it more to make more brassing!

BTW, becuase we know you got a BC M4, so we all post our BP to tempt you! ;hee;  ;hee;

Actually, it should be Edho who tempted all of us first.

I talked to a shop owner last night, he told me that why many black paint M have bubbles on paint, it was caused by sweat's acid get in the paint and made this effects, due to the paint at that time was not good.

Found more information on website. Quote from Cameraquest.
"To top off the black M3's climb to fame and serious fortune,   the original black M3's and M2's did not have that great a finish. The paint was not too durable and was easily scratched.  Over a period of years the acid in the photog's sweat would eat the paint off in a kind of blistering effect.  Strange but true.  The majority of black paint M3/M2/M4's are in rather poor condition, as they were often used by pro photogs who -- for whatever misguided reason -- actually used these precious collector's items to take pictures.    No accounting for taste, I suppose."

BP is really nice when it starts brassing..

The concept is really hard to understand until you really see it.

I guess the recent heat here is BP... so you might as well consider changing your M4BC to M4BP...

Mine is an MP and still long way from brassing nicely....

I think regarding playing with Leica... it will always come to a point where you will want a modern "get the job" done body+lens and at least one "i look very nice" body + lens...

Well... at least thats the stage i am at... haha... maybe there is another part of the evolution that i don't know about yet.

"a modern "get the job" done body+lens and at least one "i look very nice" body + lens...

Very true.

Another funny thing, my colleagues know I am a bit of a Leica nut and usually see and comment on my camera(s), but with the brassed M4BP they are even more intrigued and interested.

They think it is beautiful, but I think the brassing simply has a story that people want to imagine. That is what is beautiful to me...

haha, my BP is a get the job done camera, actually all cameras I have owned were. I shot 25 rolls with the Hammertone MP in 8 weeks before I sold. Which sounds so crazy to others. I shot 80 rolls+ from last June with my Hexar RF, M3, M6, MP and now M4. With a brassing M4, now i'm care-free to get scratches. What a good point to push me buying it. ;hee;  ;hee;  ;hee;

i know what you mean by the story...

i know its a bit weird but its like some people like to read books, some like to write...

I really would like to start from brand new and add in my mark onto the cameras myself... its a bit like buying jeans now...

there are those which the "old and worn" effect are ready made which gives it the vintage look.

There are also those ones that are truly vintage and cost $$$$ to get where all the marks are genuine with a story...

then there are some who likes to wear off their own from new.

I would like to use my MP till it really start brassing and one say i will tell my little girl (maybe not too little then) that when i bought it, it was brand new, after so many years it have becomes more used and tell her which part showed up first and which part came last.

then pass it on to her (if she is interested) no matter if she wants to use it or not, its a record of my past with it.

but hey... i buy those ready worn jeans as well... haha.. but with Leica, i would like to give it a try...

some parts are starting to go already..

I am a denim fanatic with over 40 pairs of jeans.  I was obsessive with wearing-in my raw denim and hunting for original selvedge denim. Now, I just wear any pair that I like - whether raw or distressed.

The best compliment I have heard so far is from my wife, she said the brassed M4 BP is the camera that suits me the most.

Agree with you. But i'm too impatient to wait it brassing. And actually, I don't like MP's leatherette and clutter frmaelines personally(I only use 35/50).

At the end of day, it's all about personal taste and choice.  ;cheers;

FYI, a shop owner told me that there are 2 collectors whose having 200+ original BP each in the world.....

One only starts collecting 2 years ago, and that's why BP is more difficult to get nowaday...
