I'm Ramón, (cousin to Jorge). Although I do not own a Leica, I was fortunate enough to use one this past Friday during the Leica X Vario City Challenge in Miami. The challenge also took place in New York, DC, and LA. Myself and 29 others in Miami were loaned an X Vario for four hours. I was able to shoot 146 images in a little over 3 hours throughout the Wynwood District of the city. If you're not familiar with Wynwood, check out Wynwood Walls when you have a chance, and you'll see some of the most incredibly awesome graffiti art that served as our backdrop for the challenge. Other than the few shots I took while having accidentally moved the focus ring off its AF setting, I was very impressed with the images it produced. What I liked most about the camera was the flip-up viewfinder. Looking down at the camera helped me be a bit less afraid of getting closer to people on the street. I wish Fuji made a similar viewfinder for their X100, what I normally shoot. With approximately 45 minutes remaining before I had to return it, the camera shut down from a low battery. I think Leica timed the event perfectly. It would've been nice to have a 2nd battery, but i never gave it a second thought, and I'm not sure if it would've been within the rules of the challenge to have a 2nd battery. I'm glad I signed up. Win or lose I had a blast. I have to pick one image taken with the X Vario on Friday and submit it before midnight tonight. I'm blown away by many of your images here on Leica Images. The pictures I took on Friday don't compare with the majority of the images posted here, but if you could take a minute to look through my photos and help me pick the one you like the most, I would be most grateful. Thank you all for your help.
