  1. My first photo with my first Leica! Approaching the Geyser basin in Yellowstone on the Snow Road and the the cold temperature generates clouds of billowing steam against the sun. The lone tree on the plane of the old volcano basin provides context amongst the field of crisp cold snow.

  2. I am going to the Lofoten and one of the purposes is Northern lights photography. I know that temperature at night is far bellow 0ºCelsius, I would like to know if someone has that kind of experience, I am affraid the metal will freeze quickly, is there any risk for the camera?... Any tips? I also have the option of taking a tropicalized D800 Nikon... Obrigada, thanks for all help provided.
  3. I was not sure if I should start a new thread for this simple question, but here it goes. I purchased Leica MP (used) just little over month ago. Just last week we got our first cold weathers this winter here in Finland. I have shot with the MP for many rolls without any problems. At first cold weathers the battery died, so I replaced it with brand new one. Now when I was shooting my first roll with the new battery in ~ -3 °C, after a while when the camera got cold my light meter stopped showing the overexposure led. Other leds work fine and the lightmeter does seem to work fine otherwise. I still have warranty left on the camera because I bought it from store. I would like to know if anyone else has experienced this and if this could be because of my batteries. I used Duracell DL1/3N battery, instead of the recommended CR1/3N. At the moment the led seems to work fine, when the camera is at the room temperatures.
  4. Liebe Forummitglieder. ich möchte mich an diejenige von Euch wenden, die mehr Erfahrung haben in der Entwicklungspraxis mit dem Problem von der Temperaturkontrolle des Entwicklungsbades, insbesondere bei langen Entwicklungsprozessen. ich habe neulich mit dem Mittelformat angefangen und hab mich entschieden mal endlich ein paar Negative zu "forcieren". Einen tri-x 400 habe ich auf 6400 mit meinem KIEV 88 belichtet. Dies verlangte Entwicklungszeit von 60 min. Bisher habe ich alle meinen Filme auf den Nennwert belichtet und hatte nie Problem mit der Temperatursenkung. Innerhalb von 7-10 minuten passiert ja nichts. Aber bei 60 min es wird schon problematisch. Obwohl ich den Tank während des Prozesses zwischen dem KIppen nicht einfach auf dem Tischblatt, sondern in einem becken voll von Wasser mit ca. 20 grad gehalten hatte, musste ich fesstellen dass die Temperatur ist vom 20,3 C (am Anfang) auf 17,6 gesunken ist. ich habe natürlich inzwischen alle paar minuten die Temperatur des Wassers im becken gemessen, bald warmes, bald kälteres Wasser hineingegossen, aber es ist meiner Ansicht nach ein Würfelspiel. Entweder es klappt, oder...halt nicht. Habt ihr da welche bewährte Mehtode, die ohne großen Aufwand die Temeratur dauerhaft auf dem gewünschten Niveau behalten lässt? Damit nicht jede Entwicklung zu reinem Glückspiel wird? Wäre dankbar für Eure Tips. Es würde mich auch Ihre Meinung zu einem der Resultate meines "stand-developments" sehr interessieren. ich lege das wohl am meisten gelungene Foto (von meinem lieben Neffen =) tri-X 400@6400 in HC110 (dil. B 1+31) entwicklungszeit; 60 min (30 sec initial; 10 sek alle 5 min) temp. am Anfang 20,3 C temp nach der Entwicklung; 17,6 C LG Lukasz
  5. Hi, I came across this blog post about the SL in cold conditions and I thought it was a nice read, very encouraging indeed. http://scenictraverse.com/blog/2016/1/26/review-how-does-the-leica-sl-like-the-cold
  6. Freezing cold weather turn the Chicago River into sheets of ice.
  7. During my last couple of trips in colder temperatures I've noticed that once temperatures get slightly cold the light meter of my M6 gets fairly unreliable. Meaning that the little arrows either don't show up at all, are barely visible or simply give me wrong meterings. I'm assuming it has something to do with the cold draining the batteries. But the temperatures I was in weren't exactly "freezing" - mostly between 0 and 15 Celcius (32 and 59 Fahrenheit) - so I'm not sure. Is this a common issue? Is there a simple fix? Maybe a battery thats more resistant to cold temperatures? Any help would be appreciated!
  8. Finally winter has come to Stockholm after an exceptionally warm christmas and new year. The sun was shining and I took the SL for a walk. With thermo-glowed there was no problem operating the SL. I now appreciate the placement and heft of the on-off lever being an on-offer. The other buttons were also workable. Thankful for their size. And my hands kept warm. I did not take any precautions with the battery. It was not fully charged and I did not hold the hand-grip to keep it warm. The camera hung on the strap around my neck. And the SL did function as usual. No temperature related problems during 90 minutes in the cold. (As the M does at these temperatures apart from thermo-glove usability issue.) /Eric
  9. I recently bought a M240. Now in Norway there has been two days with temperatures around zero degrees celsius. I went out shooting both days, and both days the same thing happened. Suddenly and without warning the camera seemed to lock itself. None of the buttons worked. I could still fire the shutter, but no pictures were recorded. Anyone have a clue?
  10. So ein wunderbares Bild schon etwas aelter, auch Sensorkorrosion war bei dem Bild schon aktiv, aber bei der Blende kein Problem! Ich hoffe es gefaellt
  11. Are there any new "space age" type gloves/mittens that would permit convenient and comfortable use of the camera in below freezing temperatures? Providing some protection from the cold yet maintaining flexibility and tactile sensing of focus ring and shutter release. Camera itself inside my jacket until being used. Thanks, Harry
  12. I just tried both M and M9 in -15 down to -21C. Both cameras had fully charged batteries and were kept in trunk of car overnight in temp between -15 down to -21C (yeah, this travel was in rural area, so no theft risk). I then went for a hike / photo shoot-out for 5 hrs: My conclusion: M handles the medium low temp down to -21C without problems, M9 can hardly be used. My M9 took only 5 exposures and then went dead. No reaction when switching on/off. When removing and inserting same battery it woke, but the following exposure were not recorded on card . I took 90 exposures during the 5 hrs with the M, most with LV (tripod work). I had no problems and when finishing the battery info showed 85% remaining. Quite good !

  13. I am off on a ski trip to Switzerland in a couple of weeks and am planning to take my MP with me and a load of film. I am reasonably new to film and the MP and would love some feedback on the following; 1. Exposure in snow conditions and particularly film selection for this. I would like to shoot E6 but am worried about its limitations to over or under exposure. Am I better shooting with something else? 2. I am expecting the MP will live up to the cold conditions without too many issues? 3. I have never travelled internationally with film - I assume carry-on X-ray machines are ok? Any feedback on any or all of the above would be very much appreciated.
