Just been looking at a blog of someone cycling down California's Lost Coast. The blog had some very good black and white images which I assumed as I read it were taken with a normal camera then converted to B&W later. Not so, they were taken with a Leica camera which only takes B&W images. And wait for it, it costs over £6,000 in the UK. You have to be pretty dedicated to B&W photography to fork out that much but there is no question the images are very good. The blog about the camera is here: http://stories.glenncharles.pro/a-year-in-monochrome A review of the camera is here: http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/reviews/compactsystemcameras/129345/1/leica-m-monochrom-review The blog about the Lost Coast, which is what I found first is here: http://stories.glenncharles.pro/the-lost-coast An area north of San Francisco which looks good for RV'ing. Not that good for cycling as you will find if you read the blog - too many hills!
