Evolution of a Rebuild.

2021, Favourite, Inspiration, Leica M3, Q&A, Teaching point

I’ve had several of you contact me asking about who did the rebuild on my latest M3.

The answer is:

集英堂写真機 SHUEIDO CAMERA

They are based in Taiwan and they do amazing work, as you can see.

The results are not just cosmetically impressive — the camera functions exceptionally smoothly and accurately.

Having now commissioned two M3 cameras (first a Single Stroke and now a Double Stroke) from Shueido, I would say overall they are among the best rebuilds I have ever owned.

The customer service is also exceptional.

This season is officially history.

Speaking of which, the medium of film gives this photo a nice vintage vibe.

Lastly, I choose the skyline + clubhouse as a backdrop but I lucked out  that the field was empty and the sky was overcast (making for some gentle lighting despite it being midday).
