  1. I had a similar experience with an SL Typ601. Strap gave way, camera fell onto concrete sidewalk from waist level, I picked it up and continued shooting. Not a problem. Used it for some months then sent it in to have it gone over. The body was totally out of alignment and Leica USA repaired. However, you wouldn't have known there was damage from looking at the files it had produced.
  2. 35mm APO-Summicron, Norwich terrier, an excellent friend
  3. Heron's Head Point, San Francisco , Vario-Elmarit 90-280
  4. Adobe released today the 11.4 version for Lightroom Classic. It seems to fix the bug where, with a couple of exceptions, Lens Profiles were not being applied to M11 files. I have quickly tried this new version with an M11 and a 75mm APO-Summicron-M and found that, indeed, the lens profile is applied, can be turned on and off, and the distortion slider now works.
  5. I just realized; the logo of the neighborhood Linea coffee roasting company is the same as the Leica logo.
  6. 50mm f/1 Noctilux v4, @f/1 electronic shutter, driving by... silly but...
  7. An experiment to see how close the 35mm APO-Summicron-M will go. This is MFD. The ladybuys are cropped to ~16mp and the honeybee to ~27mp. Aperture f/8. Hard to focus, particularly because in my free hand was the end of a terrier's leash, and the terrier's agenda was to find a gopher.
  8. For me, for some reason, connecting via Wi-Fi did not work at first try. I then deleted the M11 from Leica FOTOS and repaired. Then, in a boots-AND-suspenders moment, I connected via USB-C. The app wanted to have Bluetooth turned on which I did and the camera connected to the app. Scott, if there is an Update selection in the M11 section of FOTOS, just select that. If not, I guess you'll have to wait for the update to reach your part of the world.
  9. Doug, the FW update file is definitely on root level of your SD card?
  10. What about street photography as fine art. A diamond merchant in NYC discovered that a photograph of himself, taken on the street and with no signed release, was being sold at a prestigious art gallery for between 20 and 30 thousand dollars. He sued for invasion of privacy and lost. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nussenzweig_v._DiCorcia
  11. This just in… Dear Ed, Hope this email finds you well. This e-mail is in reference to the escalated case ADB-24303818-T8D9, I would like to inform you that our engineering team is working on it, here is the bug code for reference "CR-4201773". This issue will be fixed on the next release of Lightroom Classic. Thanks for working with us. Thanks & Regards Kimber Thiyam | Lead Technical Support Consultant | Customer Experience | Adobe Systems |
  12. I've written to support at Leica USA. A first step.
  13. Scott, the issue in Lightroom is that, for the majority of lenses, the Lens Profile Corrections are not being applied to image files. So, if you go to the top of the profile list, in the lens corrections panel, and enable/disable the APO 35mm profile, a correction will be applied to the image. For almost all of the other profiles, no correction is applied when enabled. But if you change the camera's metadata to say that the camera is an M other than the M11, the entire list of corrections becomes usable. This is just weirdness that needs to be fixed.
