  3. 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

    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.

    Las Familias

    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
  6. 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 style is predominantly landscape and fine art photography combined with B&W converted infrared photography. This said, I am also using digital cameras in parallel to film cameras. For infrared, I am currently using a converted Canon 5D MkII full frame DSLR with 715 nm cutoff filter, for digital landscape/macro/fine art work I am using a Sony A7R - predominantly with Leica and Voigtlander lenses plus adapter. I am not fixed to just one brand regarding photo gear and simply use what I consider best for my needs. I am looking forward to share photos and experience regarding Leica cameras and M mount lenses. Martin
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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

  11. 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.
  12. 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 surface where 600-800 people will gater for the eclipse. All the people will be in the front of the image, with the sun above them, and some mountains surrounding all the scenery. My M6 will be on a tripod with a Summicron 35 ASPH and i will try to shoot two rolls during the two minutes. 1. Should i protect my camera from the direct sunlight? If yes, how? [Corrected: Should i avoid having the sun directly in my frame?] 2. Do you have any suggested settings, i maybe should prefer? 3. Which film would you prefer? Maybe some strange questions, but since a total solar eclipse is also strange for me, it explains my questions
  13. 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). ... Testaufnahmen folgen.
  14. Death Valley in September 2014, Leica M6 - 35mm Summicron IV - Portra 160 I was positively suprised about how much there is to see and do. southwest_-55 by derphilipppp, on Flickr southwest_-60 by derphilipppp, on Flickr southwest_-57 by derphilipppp, on Flickr southwest_-58 by derphilipppp, on Flickr
  15. 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 result in condensation. How can i protect it from condensation, on days where it's travelling in and out, from - let's say - minus 5 or plus 10 degrees Celsius, with a humidity over 80%, and inside to plus 20 degrees Celsius, and the other way around several times each day? Yes, it's gonna be protected in a bag under the most severe conditions, but my concern is condensation, as a result from changing temperatures and changing humidity.
  16. 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 share with me I am all ears.

  18. 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?
  19. I already posted some of these in the Film and Mountains thread but I figured they might be worthy of an own thread. Taken on Portra 160 with a Leica M6 + 35mm Summicron IV
  20. 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 wenn er sich verdreht schaut die blendenskala auch mal nach unten. ich dachte, dass sei bei der neuen Version nicht möglich, weiss aber ehrlich gesagt nicht woher ich die Meinung habe. Bitte um kurze Info, wenn sich jemand auskennt. Ps an der m6 gibt es keine Einschränkungen hinsichtlich der Versenkung, oder? Gruss Markus
  21. 4 photos don't really do the place justice but well... see the rest at: All on Portra 160 film - Leica M6 - 35mm Summicron IV
  22. I am new to the forum and looking to make the plunge into a film camera to keep me on my toes when I am out on my own. I normally shoot a 5D MK2 and I have a GF1 too. I work professionally on all kinds of jobs but am more concerned with how lazy digital has made me - and from what I have read on other sites, others too! I am aware of the size and weight issues with the RF vs the SLR in the M6, R9 debate, BUT, I can't decide as they are vaguely the same in price at the moment for a 2nd hand model. I would most likely have 21mm, 35mm and 50mm lens on either. If I was to go for the M, Carl Zeiss would have to be the lenses due to budget. I have never used a RF but I am keen to 'go right back' to the traditional stuff and I think there is more nostalgia attached to them - I think I would feel better 'inside' using one. Does anyone who has used both, have any advice.
  23. Hallo, ich habe heute feststellen müssen, dass sich auf den Linsen meines Summicrons in Moiree-förmiger Fehler befindet. Der Fehler ist neu, es sind weder Schmutz noch Kratzer auf Front- und Rücklinse. Auf meinem letzten Film hatte ich das Muster auf einem Bild mit Gegenlicht entdeckt und mich sehr darüber gewundert. Ich bin mir keiner Schuld bewusst. Kann mir jemand weiterhelfen?? Auf den angefügten Bildern sollte man den Fehler sehen, scheinbar befindet er sich irgendwo hinter der Blende, und nein, es ist kein Lichtreflex. Vielen Dank Ludwig
