My first encounter with the legendary Leica Noctilux was about ten years ago, when one of my good friends returned from a holiday in Switzerland with his new Leica M6 and an assortment of Leica lenses—all given to him by his grandfather! Yes, GIVEN! And among those lenses was the Leitz Noctilux f1. I remember seeing those first images Michael shot on his new M6, wide open, with the Noctilux, and I remember thinking, "My goodness, I couldn't care less if there's no actual point of focus in the image!" The way that Noctilux rendered was just breathtaking.

Viewfinder to the eye, focus while exposing, control the breathing, pray to Cartier-Bresson, release the shutter—that is how I shoot film. Though I use digital for my professional work for many reasons, I still love to shoot film. It's fun, and besides, there is a slight adrenaline rush that comes from not knowing whether or not I got the shot.
Why be a fly on the wall at an event or wedding, when you can be a ninja? There are many photographers that love to be stealthy in their own ways. If you'd like to learn the ways of the ninja photographer, then check out these cameras to help you get started.
