    Hello guys, Does anyone know why this blue line has appeared from the sun through my image? Thanks to all.   Federico
    • pop

      There is a very bright part of the image that lies exactly on the edge of the sensor, i.e. the image of the sun. This confuses the sensor, causing it to produce that line. 


      The image can not be recovered.


      The effect does not damage the sensor. Try framing the image a bit differently, moving the sun completely outside of the frame or within the frame at some distance from the edge of the image.

      If you have money to spend, buy what you want for Luxes to be on pair and something easy for kid. Like serviced M2, Color Skopar, TwinMate lightmeter and bulk of bw film with developer and else to let kid to learn at his own and ask questions. And not always from you. They ask, learn on-line.

    • ShivaYash

      I'd recommend a twin body set up, nice to shoot two types of film at the same time. The MP is charming and very similar to the M6. As others have said, price doesn't seem to be an issue so go new.

      You will have to budget for the 6-bit conversion i'm afraid but your dealer is selling this new old stock lens at a lesser price than a current one i guess. Otherwise i would look for another dealer.

    • Brabu

      Hallo Oliver,

      meiner Meinung nach kannst Du unbesorgt das C-Biogon kaufen....also das 2,8er...ich benutze es fast ausschließlich analog, es ist auf meiner M4 angewachsen...ich kann analog keine unscharfen Ecken entdeckten und wenn, kommen die vielleicht dann eher vom Film...und gehören dann auch irgendwie dazu....ich habe allerdings das 2,0er nicht...ich habe digital meist das Distagon (1,4/35) auf der Kamera, auf der M4 nutze ich sonst noch das Planar (2/50) ...alle drei sind sehr gute Objektive, das Distagon ist vielleicht eine Spur zu groß und zu schwer....

    Peter H has started Seriously Worried about my M10 in Leica M10.
    You may or may not know that I had an unpleasant accident with my 2-month old M10 which I managed to crash to the hard and unforgiving ground a few weeks ago. I blame no one but myself for that....
    • anickpick

      Peter currently owns a piece of non-functional scrap.

      Paying 60% of the retail price to restore it to the level of a new M10 seems viable to me. If Peter authorises the repair at the quoted £3000 and doesn't subsequently feel comfortable with the camera I'll happily pay him £3050 for it with every confidence it will work perfectly.

      Cameras get broken all the time and manufacturers fix them.



      I increase the bid: £3075


      Seriously: Peter, I also would authorize the repair.

    • Peter H

      Thanks again for all the nice messages.

      But the offers to buy the camera sort of illustrate the problem. Before the accident I could have sold the camera for around £4000 say, probably a fair bit more. Now, I can pay £3000 to have it repaired and sell it for £3,075. ( A smiley face would feel appropriate at this point.) So I'd still be down over £5,000:  £8600 (purchase plus repair) - £3075 = £5,525.  


      Even if I recover £3000 from the insurance company I'd be £2,500 down, with no camera and an increase in insurance premiums to look forward to.

      So I'd better authorise the repair and keep the camera. It's the only sensible thing to do. And I don't mean to throw your generosity back at you!

      Thanks everyone for clarifying things for me!




      PS: The attached lens only needs a new filter-holder ring and with labour costs will amount to another £300. Quite an expensive little trip to Dundee, but I did get to hear UB40 for free as they were playing live in an open venue directly next to out hotel room, so we just opened the window and enjoyed the post-accident evening. And my broken rib is repairing itself free-of-charge.
