Quote: “A camera, like a guitar, is just a box with a hole in it. Until it is placed in the hands of a true artist, it will not make music, only noise. What do you want your music to sound like?” – Tim Mantoani

Thought for the day: Question – Is the Leica CL weather sealed?
From a Quora question I answered:
If you google on this question you will see that Leica does not claim that they are. Users report that with care you may not ruin you camera during a walk in the rain (can you think of coming home and saying “Honey, I ruined the Leica!”. A number of cameras claim weather sealing but this implies limitations. Weather sealing, not weather proof. And weather proof is not underwater proof. And worse yet is that underwater proof isn’t proof agains the dust clouds of Burning Man or Holi powder. You may pay your money and take your chances, but I wouldn’t with a Leica or other fine camera.

Use appropriate tools with suitable protection. Be aware that getting the pictures you want may result in ruin of the camera. But…the purpose of the camera is to help you make pictures, not to sit on a warm safe storage shelf.

About the Author:

SlickPic was created by a group of like-minded photographers and photography-enthusiasts who wanted a service that wouldn't force them to conform to a certain style or niche, but one that would allow them the freedom to use their photos to tell whatever stories they want. They wanted a service that was capable of storing, showcasing, sharing, and displaying photos in all the different ways people use photos: some are meant just for family, some are taken for friends, and some are made for the world to see.
