  1. Hello all, Just want to introduce myself - I am doing photography since 1985. As the headline states, I grew up in Germany but live for professional reasons not related to photography since 2005 permanently in the US. I just recently acquired my first Leica camera - the Leica M6 since I always wanted to have a fully mechanic reliable camera including a light meter. I want to do B&W film photography with this camera since I still develop my own film and use my darkroom to make silver gelatin prints both from digital files (using homemade digital negatives) and from film negatives. My s

    Taking a Break

    Photo taken with my Leica M6 and Kodak Tri-X 400 film using the Leica 50/2 Summicron-M lens. The film was developed with Kodak D76. The negatives were digitized by photographing with Sony A7R and Sigma 105/2.8 macro lens. Post processing with B&W and channel inversion plus slight contrast adjustment.

  4. I took this on a visit to the Forbidden City in Beijing in 1998 and this is a scan from the original Velvia transparency. I used a Leica M6 back then, and this was probably taken with the 50mm Summicron f2 but I have no exposure details. It forms part of a gallery of Beijing images in a gallery which I am gradually adding to and can be viewed at http://archive.gwpics.com/gallery/Beijing-1998/G00001zr0M27_Rk4 Thanks for looking. Gerry
  5. I shot this in Beijing in 1998 using a Leica M6 and 50mm Summicron f2 lens. The film was Tri-X. I have just got around to scanning it as part of my efforts to digitise many years of film images. I guess these streets have disappeared now since the rebuilding for the Olympics. I have just started shooting film again with a M7!
  6. Hallo zusammen, ich schau mich grad nach einer M6 um. Hab dazu nur eine Frage, kann es sein, dass es auch Modelle (80er und früher) gibt, die keine Sucher-Kennung haben, also die kleine Zahl in der rechten unteren Ecke? Ist das dann immer ein 0.72 Sucher? Vielen Dank für eure Hilfe und beste Grüße vom Bodensee
  7. I am continuing to scan and catalogue some of my transparencies from the days when I shot with a Leica M6, and this was taken on that camera in Beijing in 1998. I can tell you it was shot on Fuji Velvia but I have no lens/aperture details although I suspect it was the 50mm Summicron. Gerry

  9. Hi there! I'm looking to buy my second M6 Non-TTL body. I've googled, but i did find answers pointing in different directions. Do you know if some production numbers/years are more prone to zinc corrosion on the top plate? Are some models guaranteed free of zinc corrosion? What should i take into consideration before buying so i don't end up with a body that later could be "infected" with zinc corrosion on the top plate?
  10. Hello I am looking at getting my first leica! I am looking at getting a m6 classic I just have a few questions. I wear glasses and I hear that people who wear glasses should get a .58 magnification is this true? Would I be fine with .72 magnification? Another question is are the m6 classics as reliable as people say they are and how much money should I set aside for a service? Also what should I look over when looking at a m6? Thank you so much for help I appreciate it! This is the one I am looking at http://philadelphia....5216118730.html

  12. I took this on the Isles of Shoals back in 1997 using my Leica M6 and Fuji Velvia (sorry, no lens details but I suspect the 50mm Summicron f2) whilst on a photographic retreat with the New Hampshire Society of Photographic Artists, and I have just scanned it for the first time.
  13. I took this on a trip to Beijing in 1998 using my M6, and I have just scanned it to give it a new life. I am sorry but I have no details stored with the original, but can say that it was taken on Fuji RDP 100iso film. I hope you like it! Gerry

    The Crickets

    Back in 1998 I went on a package tour to Beijing with my wife, but the images have lain pretty dormant in my filing cabinet since. I am now going through some of my older work and scanning it, and I was particularly pleased with this one which was shot on Fuji Provia using an M6 and Summicron-M f2. The exact details have been lost in the annal of time, but I think it was taken in the Forbidden City and shows a man who has brought his caged crickets out to enjoy the winter sunshine. I remember reading that Marc Ribaud )Magnum) had gone to China to photograph the Tiananmen Square 'happenings' in
  16. After many years of work, I have finally edited down my 51,267 photos of Honduran families to 52 and published my first Blurb book: http://www.blurb.com/books/6725808-las-familias All photos made with Leica rangefinders, all with black and white film. I still have second thoughts about what I should and should not have included but I had lots of help editing and will save the second thoughts for another book! You can preview the whole book on Blurb. Let me know what you think! Tina

    The Ferry Trip

    This is from my trip to the US in 2001 and was taken on the Ellis Island Ferry using the Leica M6 and TX400CN. I thought long and hard about posting this image, and finally came to the conclusion that less able-bodied people are a part of our society and hopefully this image shows a caring relationship and inclusion in the world.

  18. I have just posted a new blog post at https://gerrywalden.wordpress.com/2016/09/05/just-one-roll-of-film/ which sabot a roll of film I shot in 2003 using a Leica M6 and (I think) a Summicron f2. It features 9 images in mono of a Mela in Southampton. Please take a look. Gerry
  19. Guten Tag, Erst einmal bin ich überglücklich weil ich von meinem Vater zum 18. Geburtstag eine sehr gut erhaltene Leica M6 (+ Originalverpackung) und Summicron-C 40mm bekommen habe. Der Messsucher erweist sich als äußerst klar und alle Zeiten laufen sauber! Allerdings musste ich bei meinem ersten Ausflug feststellen, dass bei der Objektivfokussierung "Unendlich", Unendliche Objekte im Messsucher nicht als Scharf angezeigt werden. Bedeutet das, dass der Messsucher dieser Leica dejustiert ist??? Korrekturlinsen brauche in normalerweise nicht (habe keien Brille). ... Testaufn
  20. I'm about to start a project where i will use my Leica gear (M6 and a 35 mm ASPH Summicron) extensively each and every day under different circumstances and changing weather conditions for a half year or so. I'm not anal about my equipment since it's been bought to use. I just want to protect it in the best way, since it's gonna be exposed to heavy use. I'm gonna try to minimize the use in heavy rain and snow. The one thing, i'm most concerned about is how it's gonna react and cope with changing weather conditions, changing humidity and changing temperature, which i imagine could resul
  21. I do commercial photography as a huge part of my day job, but I have a Canon EOS 1Dx for that. However I do, for my personal use, much prefer my M6 due to the size and the quality of the glass. I have a decent assortment of M glass, all with UV/IR cut filters on them. I would like to switch to a digital M as work has me traveling quite a bit going forward and I am honestly done with the extra handling that film requires. I don't know if anyone else has done this, or if I am over reaching by wanting to swap for an M8.2 body. If any of you have any thoughts, or tips, that you'd like to shar
  22. On March 20'th i will be in a country where Total Solar Eclipse will occur for two minutes, where it will be "peaking" at 9:41 AM local time. I think i already now know the scenery/landscape where i will be, but i'm wondering how to protect the camera from damage, since i did read somewhere that you should be very careful and not stare at the sun. This leads me to think, if the sun is so strong, that it can damage my eyes the two minutes - the lengt of the total solar eclipse - could it also damage my camera as well? I will most likely be on a mountain, some 20 meters above a flat
  23. Hallo liebe Foriker Ich habe heute mal den letzten Film entwickelt, und da auf einem Bild, einen schwarzer Streifen am linken Bildrand gesehen, allerdings ist das Motiv darunter noch sichtbar, der Rest des Fotos wirkt überbelichtet. Siehe Anhang Jetzt meine Frage, was könnte der Fehler sein. Hat der Verschluss gehangen? Es ist nur ein Foto, auf dem ganzen Film. Die Kamera wurde seit dem Bild davor, das letzte mal vielleicht drei Tage davor benutzt. Belichtungszeit müsste entweder 1/500s oder 1/1000s sein. Grüße Haze70

  25. Hi allerseits Bin ganz frisch im Forum und habe eine Frage: Ich habe die Gelegenheit ein 50er elmar-m (Baujahr1996) für meine m6ttl zu knapp 500eur zu kriegen. Konnte es neulich bei Bekannten ansehen und die Gläser sind Top (innen wie aussen) und gebrauchsspuren sieht man auch kaum. Zwei Dinge sind mir aufgefallen, die ich seltsam fand und bei denen ich auf Hilfe hoffe, wenn jemand das objektiv kennt. 1. Der blendenring hat etwas Spiel - aber nicht rechts-Links sondern minimal vor- und zurück. 2. Der versenkbare Anteil lässt sich im eingeschobenen Zustand komplett rundum drehen - also we
