Leica M6 vs Leica M5

This video not only compares the Leica M6 to the Leica M5 but also compares 35mm and 50mm focal lengths, as well as talks about the differences between Ilford HP5 Plus 400 to Kodak Tri-X 400.  We’re not saying any of these options are better than the other because they’re not – it all comes down to personal preference really which is why this video focuses less on tech specs and more shooting style and your approach to photography.

Below are the images Matt Day & Trev Lee took with their preferred setups!
