  1. Hey folks - I just purchased a secondhand Q on eBay. It arrived today and I've been really enjoying the feel after shooting with a 240 over the last many years. But when I started seeing the images in Lightroom my heart sank. Can you take a look at this and tell me what I'm seeing here? Looks like the sensor is corrupted somehow? Thank you!
  2. I discovered massive dust behind the cover glass of the M10 viewfinder. Can not be removed from outside. No other dust in the camera at all. Never had that problem with any other M. Has anyone experienced this problem too?
  3. Hi, I have an issue with dust in my M10. It is not this often ( Nearby zero ) that I change my lenses. I mostly shoot with my 35mm 1.4 FLE. When I have changed a lens, i do a dust check. Of course, I check the glasses to make sure they are dust free. If it is very sunny, I prefer to shoot with f11 or f16, but always when I see the images results, there is dust on the images. What tips can you give to avoid dust in the M10?
  4. I've recently acquired a very cheap 35mm Summicron v4 M in very good shape. However, the front and back elements are filled with dust (or fungus). The edges don't have any obvious fungus or anything. The are only specs here and there, but mostly in the center of the elements. What do you guys think? Is it dust or fungus? Here are some pictures:
  5. How often do folks typically need to wet clean their SL sensors? Lately my SL is picking up quite a bit of dust, and I seem to need to clean about once every 8 weeks or so, and I am not in a particularly dusty environment when I change lenses.
  6. Hi all. My M6 TTL is a brand new (new old stock) purchased last week. The camera is indeed pristine, with box and all papers etc, but today I noticed something weird at the finder window (on the inside), which initially looked like fog, but after using a flashlight to have a closer look, it seems to be something else. Can anybody tell what it is? The small white spot in the center is what makes me suspect it could be some kind of 'mushroom' - Also, it seems slightly -again, slightly- foggy on the inner side of that glass face, just where the spots are. Picture below.
  7. Hello everyone, I am new to Leica and forum (not quite bought the camera yet!), and seek some help I have read many threads over the last week on this forum so I am more familiar with the Q and any issues. I have demoed a Q at the Mayfair store London, took a few pics outside the shop, then viewed at home on a big monitor. Very nice indeed ! The lens on their demo was pretty dirty, marks and finger prints all over it ! I didn't know the Q was to order from Mayfair so I popped into another Leica dealer in London who was very helpful to ask if they had stock etc. After reading several posts regarding dust on sensor appearing, my concern is what happens outside of warranty. I just spoke to the Leica dealer (not Mayfair), and he shot me down in flames and said it doesn't exist and can't happen. We chatted further and he said drop it in to us and we send to Leica. Outside of warranty, he couldn't reply (for this non existent issue !) so I am no wiser or confident, how it would be handled. Dropping it back to London would mean a 5 hour round trip so not on the doorstep ! I am just trying to gain some idea of cost of cleaning outside the warranty. Does anyone have experience of costings, I guess this may be difficult as its prob around 2 yrs or approaching since it came out ? Out of all the little quirks the Leica has, this is stopping me buying one until I have a clearer idea on the cleaning. Appreciate its not every Q that suffers. I really like the Q, image quality is fantastic looking at pictures I am after a 2nd camera, fixed lens to go with my Fuji X-T2. I know the obvious thing would be to buy a 100f but I cannot get away from the Leica quality ! Thanks for any help Gill
  8. I recently bought a used "mint" Summilux 35 ASPH FLE and upon receiving it I discovered the inside of the lens to be extremely dusty. Needless to say, I returned it immediately. I do wonder how this could be possible though - the lens was sold to the previous owner in 2016/10 so it's been used for about a year. I just can't believe a one-year-old lens can have this much dust in it. Is there some type of design flaw with the FLE version that makes it prone to dust? I'm thinking about getting a new one so I don't want the lens to be like this after a year...

  10. Hey everyone! I have been noticing a small hair in the upper right hand corner of my developed film scans. Here is a link: http://imgur.com/a/SjQK8 Was wondering if anyone could give e some suggestions as to where this could be coming from? It seems to move around slightly, and I have used a rocket air blaster on the inside of the camera + lens with no results. Using a lecia m6 ttl with a 35mm summicron f2 asph Any help would be appreciated! Thank you.
  11. I just wanted to share something that might help others in their quest for less dust on negs. I am a noob when it comes to developing, and my first several rolls of film were horrible. There were so many scratches, dust, dirt, dog hair and crap on them I thought I'd never create a crap free neg, but I stumbled on a fool proof solution for me! Here are the elements: 1.) I run a hot shower for two minutes to bring the dust down in the bathroom where the negs will hang (I do it at the end of the washing step). 2.) I turn off the air conditioner and put a towel over the floor vent to minimize circulating air. 3.) I only remove the film from the tank IN the bathroom ready for hanging, no walking around with it. It goes from the tank to the clips. 4.) (I think this is key) I pour the photo-flo from the canister down both sides of my film right after hanging. I think it washes crap off the film...that's my guess. 5.) (another key point I think) I get the scanner ready for the film before it's dry and when I go into the bathroom, I cut the negs off of the clips at the bottom and the top, I don't try to clean off the accumulated moisture at the clips. Once I have a neg in hand, I GO STRAIGHT to the scanner and feed it into the scanner. (a 20 foot trip) 6.) I also wear white-lint-free-cotton-inspection-gloves when handling the negs. That's it. Since I've been doing that I've had to clean a total of two TINY dust spots off of my negs in 4 rolls developed. I'm astounded how well it works! No dust at all. Just thought someone might benefit from something here; I know that I was pulling my hair out with my previous results.
  12. Hi guys, I recently picked up a nice classic M6 with a voigtlander nokton 35mm 1.4 I'm really enjoying the setup. I live on a cattle station in western Queensland, Australia and usually take a camera with me when mustering (herding cattle). As it can get quite dusty, I'm just wondering if anyone has any advice on protecting the camera/lens from said dust apart from the usual. I won't be changing lenses as I only have the one at the moment but would expect to pick some dust up when loading film etc. Any tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Butch
  13. Here I want to share my experience on scanning scratched negatives. I thought it might be helpful since recently there are many questions posted on this. I've never owned an ICE capable scanner, so I had to find a solution for covering scratches on colour negatives when scanning them with my Konica Minolta film scanner. Post processing is not adequate in some cases. So 6 years back, I purchased a liquid solution called Rexton Scratch-Match from Adorama. It worked great! You just apply liberally over the frame you want to scan, it doesn't evaporate quickly and stays there. You wipe it off later, doesn't leave any residue. You can also clean the film with your favourite cleaner afterwards. 6 years fast forward, I am no longer living in the States, and similar products are not available for airmail postage due to harmful/toxic properties. So I had to find a local alternative. TURPENTINE! Yes, it is the same stuff, smells the same, and works the same, and cheaper! I read somewhere that Scratch-Match had some Chloroform (now a regulated substance) added to Turpentine. But apparently, Turpentine by itself works OK, too. I used distilled filtered Turpentine from Daler-Rowney. For better results apply with a flat painter's brush. Note that this solution doesn't help emulsion scratches. Below is the proof. I deliberately scratched (a bit too much actually) a negative strip and tested for you. Cheers, Koray
