    The Copiest

    I took this in the Louvre in Paris in 2002. I have just scanned it to add it to my archive. The camera was certainly the M6 and probably the lens was the 35mm Summicron I had back then. It was taken on Agfa Vista 800 colour film, which I have no rational explanation for now because I can't imagine me ever using it. The grain is pretty big, but through judicious use of LRCC I think I have gotten away with it at this size, or at least I hope so! I do like the result. Gerry

  4. Taken in the Soho area of London in 1999 and just discovered whilst trawling through my negatives. It would have been Leica M6 and is Tri-X. Gerry
  5. Taken in 2002 using a Leica M6 but I am afraid I have no further details as i have mislaid the negative: Gerry
  6. Another from my first visit to Italy in March 1999. This was taken in Montepulciano (Tuscany/Toscana) using a Leica M6 with Tri-X film but I have no other details recorded. Looking at the image I would assume 50mm Summicron f2. Gerry
  7. Before I owned the M6, I used to have the Canonet QL 17 GIII. It was working perfectly until I stopped using it for 3 months. The shutter got stuck. When I took it to the repair shop, they asked if I have left the battery inside as the shutter/ self timer is very sticky and dry. So I'm wondering if I should remove my M6's battery when not in use to prevent shutter jam?

  9. Hallo, ich bin neu im Forum. Ich bin seit langer Zeit stolzer Besitzer einer nach wie vor funktionstüchtigen M6. Allerdings merke ich, dass der technische Fortschritt auch nicht spurlos an mir vorüberzieht. Seit einigen Jahren fotografiere ich nur noch digital. Ich möchte mich ungern von meiner M6 trennen, möchte sie aber auch im digitalen Zeitalter vernünftig nutzen können. Frage: Gibt es Möglichkeiten, eine digitale Rückwand in die M6 einzubauen, so dass ich sie (freilich ohne Display, das brauche ich nicht) digital nutzen kann? Wenn ja: Wer bietet so etwas an? Was kostet so etwas? Gibt es Erfahrungen, Bewertungen, usw. damit, damit ich abschätzen kann, ob sich die Investition auch wirklich lohnt? Oder bleibt mir nichts anderes übrig als mich von meiner M6 zu trennen, für eine M9 fleißig zu sparen oder es zu lassen? Schon mal danke für eure hilfreichen Antworten. AS

  11. Hi, I looked around on the forum and did not find much info about this... My M6 VF is giving me a hard time focusing (sometimes). I recently got it and other than this problem it's mechanically and cosmetically perfect. So in general it's hard for me to focus when my subject is: 1. Heavily backlight (bright source of light); 2. Very contrasted; 3. In a very dark environment. From what I've heard this seems to be to a fairly common problem with M6's. I contacted Gerry Smith in Toronto at Kindermann (I live in Montreal) and he told me about a modification that could be done to the VF for approx. 180$. So my question is: Does it need to be modified? or is it just maybe dirty? Has anybody upgraded their M6 this way? Is it worth it? Any insight would be great! Thanks
  12. Hallo zusammen. Ich finde leider keine Antwort in bestehenden posts; kann mir jemand sagen, ob ich mit meiner M6 mit Leitz Logo einen höheren Verkaufspreis erzielen kann, als mit einer neueren, Leica gebrandeten Version? Danke und gut Licht!
  13. I am relatively new to the entire film world and was just godfathered a Leica M6 with three M lenses. What film is the best for Leica's and I am mostly interested in night shooting. Any advice would be helpful
  14. I have got several Carl Zeiss M42 lens which I really love to use and would like to fit them on my M6- does using an adaptor on a lens alters the image quality?

  22. Hello all! i have been a film shooter for years mostly (leica m6). recently i have been craving a digital camera to carry along with my set up. I cant really stretch to a m9, so i was thinking of going to a m8.. ... am I Mad? i was thinking of trading in a m6...
  23. Hi, I just bought my first Leica, an M6 Classic. I hope I'm not asking a stupid question... I have a Summaron 35mm f/3.5 serial number 1179705, I think it might be from 1954? On my M6 the 35mm frame lines does not automatically show; I get the 50mm + 75mm. I have to turn the frame lever to get the 35mm + 135mm frame lines. I understand there is an issue with the goggles made for the M2. But reading about it, I get all confused. How do I know if my Summaron was designed to be used with goggles? If I so; shouldn't the M6 display the 35mm frames without the goggles? I understand some have filed down a detail on the lens to make it work without the goggles; could this be my problem? I would greatly appreciate any help from you good people of this forum :-) PS: Also; the focus lock knob touches the frame lever, making close focusing a bit hard - is this "normal"?
  24. Hallo, ich möchte mich gerne von meiner Leica Sammlung trennen und habe deshalb die M6, ein Summicron-M 2/35 , ein Elmarit-M 2,8/90 und ein Noctilux 1:1,2/50mm zur Überprüfung an den Leica Customer Service eingeschickt. Ergebnis ist, das für das Austauschen des Entfernungsmessers und Reinigen der M6 fast 600 € berechnet werden. Für die beiden Objektive mit neu fetten, Optik reinigen und neu justieren werden jeweils knapp 400 € veranschlagt. An das Noctilux traut sich "keiner" ran. Ist auch kein Wunder das Teil ist wie neu und wurde nur 1-2 mal verwendet. Meine Frage lohnt sich eine Reparatur der M6 bzw. Wartung der beiden Objektive in Höhe von fast 1600- € ? Oder gibt es eine Alternative zu dem Leica Service. Besten Dank und Gruß Frank
