NEEWER 160 LED CN-160 vs Yongnuo LED Video Light YN300

I’ve had the Neewer CN-160 for about a year and have used it for events, street photography and even product photography. It uses 3 type of batteries.

Second day with the Leica M Type 240 in Black and White

Second day of testing the Leica M Type 240. I shot in RAW mode then converted to B&W in Lightroom. I also took the M for a little while in a local Carnival and experienced lots of extreme lighting changes that kept fooling the built in meter into overexposing and underexposing by about 2 to 4 stops….
