Steve Huff needs no introduction: As a veteran blogger with a large fanbase, he is also known across the internet as a rangefinder and small-camera aficionado.

Worth Its Weight in Gold: The Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95

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.

Leica V-Lux 20: Super Zoom, Compact Body

Hello, B&H Insights readers! I am back again today to talk about a new Leica compact camera that has been garnering a great deal of attention across the Internet for the past few weeks. The new Leica V-Lux 20 is a compact camera with some new and convenient features, and I have had the pleasure of testing it out for the past couple of days.

The iLeica

When Steve Jobs introduced the new iPhone 4 at the recent WWDC10 Conference, he described the latest iPhone incarnation as being "… the most precise thing we've ever made. There is glass on front and the backside and it has stainless steel around it. Its closest kin is a beautiful old Leica camera." That’s a pretty heady statement from an equally heady mover and shaker. But iconic referencing aside, how true is this statement?   

The Leica D-Lux 4. Is it still a good option for a compact camera?

Hi there! My name is Steve Huff and this is my very first post to the B&H Insights blog. While usually busy running my own photo site at stevehuffphoto.com, I am happy to announce that I will also be writing articles right here for B&H Photo.

I have been a passionate photographer for 15 years and in that time I have shot with, owned, or tested almost every digital camera ever made. Today I shoot with Leica and in future posts I will explain why I do, and also try to share my thoughts on Leica cameras in general like what makes them so unique and why they are so crazy expensive!
