Hello all, I live in a city, (San Francisco) that hosts Leica Academy sessions, and I have wondered for a while now, is it worth doing? I shoot primarily with an m6. The Academy wants participants to use an m9 and will loan an m9, but I want to shoot with a film camera, not a digital camera. Are these tutorials nothing but a marketing ploy? Is there anything to be gained by a person who wants to shoot film? Or are they trying to pull us in like carp using the loaned m9, which I am sure is a beautiful beast, but I have picked my pony and don't want to use a digital camera... I would love to hear from those who have a thought on the matter. Thanks for input, Lenore.
