  1. Hello fellow M8 users, I am very happy to announce that I finished the tool mentioned in the thread M8 goes uncompressed DNG! It creates 16bit (acually 14bit in a 16bit container) DNG files from the M8 RAW files with slightly more pixels and much more discrete values compared to the 8bit standard DNG. I even set up a website with download, comment function, contact form and whatnot... even though I am really not familiar with web programming so please be lenient if it is not as polished as this site here for example. The command-line tool is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, so I am now looking forward to getting some input after you tested it on your own files. You can find more information on m8raw2dng.de. I am trying to make the program as good as possible (because I am using it myself on a daily basis). To achieve this I thought it clever to share it with the community even though I had to create a completely new software from scratch in C++ even though I already have a running version in Matlab with more functionality. But I think that'll change as I focus now on the C++ version. I invite you to share this information with other M8 users on other forums, flickr groups, wherever you like. Have fun and good results, Arvid
  2. Just posted some photos on my blog about my beautiful "new" camera, check it out if interested! https://uninspiredme.wordpress.com/2015/04/12/camera-porn-leica-m8-anti-panda/
  3. I am looking for a camera bag that should cost around $60-100 and it should fit a M8 with a 50mm Summicron. I want it to look like something normal and doesn't scream "I AM A CAMERA BAG! LOOK AT ME!" and should fit a M8 with a water bottle and some batteries. I originally wanted a billingham hadley digital but didn't think it was worth the price (and another kidney) so yeah, hope you guys can help!
  4. Flickr 上 Jimmy C. Yang 的 Hat Man I saw this guy on bus, and I thought it will be an interesting shot.
  5. I took my new m8 with an old summar to the local skatepark. Spent some time with friends and walked away with some nice portraits
  6. 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.
  7. Hi guys , recently i bought an M8 . And it has some color problems which black fabric looks magenta , so i was wondering if the UV/haze filters can solve this problem ? Thank you.
  8. I just purchased a used M8 from an Ebay member of 6 years with a 100% rating. He is sending paperwork along with the camera showing that Leica US had recently completed a CLA on the camera. I know what a CLA includes on an M6 but can someone tell me what it incudes on an M8? Thanks
  9. Hi Everybody,I'm a new one to the leica world especially to digital leica camera. I got a used leica M8 camera on ebay about a month ago with around 5000 shutter counts and Firmware 2.014. Camera comes only with charger and battery,no box or other accessory.Seller said he has no problem since owned it. After I got the camera I checked the shutter num directly in the body debug data in the service menu and it did have around 5000 exposurecounts and the camera seems works fine.I registed the camera in leica.com and even got 2 UV/IR filters with the serial num on the hotshoe(3104318 which seems an early products...) since the previous owner seems didn't apply for them. But recently when I was playing with the camera,I occasionally entered the service menu and played with all the options in the menu other than just the debug data,and that's where I thinkg the problem starts:when I entered the firmware info option in the service menu(please see attached pic),I found that the serial num didn't match the one on the hotshoe(3103771)!!!!! I'm so confused and nervous now,I paid almost $1500 for the camera... Anybody have any idea on this?Could it be the previous owner cheated on the camera? Why the serial num didn't match?Could it be the top plate including the hotshoe was not the original one(3103771) due to serious damage? And thus was replaced from another dead camera for parts(3104318) ? Please help me out,any idea or suggestions will be really appreciated~~~ I'll need to contact the seller to see if we can work something out if this is really a big problem although I've left positive feedback for him....
  10. kein Tippfehler der Film heisst wirklich so (deutsch Poliezei ) Hauptprotagonistin Mélissa (Maïwenn de Bosco - auch Regie und Skript) ist eine Fotografin die im Film sehr oft mit einer Leica M8* arbeitet**. *sinnigerweise war der franz. Partner von Arte bei diesem Film M6 (der frz RTL Ableger) ** ich bin gespannt was die Tagespresse als Foto veröffentlicht einige Pressefotos sind Werbeplakate für die M8 mit 28er Elmarit
  11. It was a rainy day in Taipei, but I still took out my M8 and Summicron 35 IV to shoot. Flickr 上 Jimmy. Yang 的 Leica M8 Summicron 35-1188255 Flickr 上 Jimmy. Yang 的 Leica M8 Summicron 35-1188254 Flickr 上 Jimmy. Yang 的 Nespresso pop up Flickr 上 Jimmy. Yang 的 Leica M8 Summicron 35-1188239
  12. This weekend I visited Ximending in Taipei with my beloved Leica M8 with summircon 35 Pre-A. I was able take some very interesting shots in this area in Taipei. Overall, I'm very happy with my setup, the 35 summicron is a very good performer all around, and the 35mm on M8 is very practical when shooting on the street. Here are some of the results from that day, enjoy. Flickr 上 Jimmy. Yang 的未命名相片 Flickr 上 Jimmy. Yang 的 Ximen Flickr 上 Jimmy. Yang 的未命名相片 Flickr 上 Jimmy. Yang 的未命名相片 thanks for watching

  14. Bis zum Erwerb meiner Leica M8 habe ich ausschließlich Farbdiapositive aufgenommen. Jetzt, in der überwiegend digitalen Fotowelt, wollte ich diese Aufnahmen nicht vergessen - also digitalisieren, natürlich selbst! Dazu boten sich die digitalen Leicas und das BEOON-Nahgerät mit seinem möglichen Abbildungsbereich von 1:1 bis 1:3 an. Die ersten Versuche machte ich mit der Leica M9, Maßstab 1:1, einem kleinen Leuchtpult und verschiedenen 50mm-Objektiven. Nach den ersten Testaufnahmen schieden wegen mangelnder Randschärfe (Zonenhöhe ab 17mm) das Summicron 2/50 (Vers.IV), das Summarit 1,5/50 und das Elmar 3,5/50 (Red Scale) aus. Lediglich das Focotar 4,5/50 aus dem Focomat brachte bessere Ergebnisse. Die nutzbare Bildqualität des Focotars konnte durch einen Crop gesteigert werden. Also: Abbildungsmaßstab auf 1:1,5 erhöhen und als Kamera die Leica M8 mit dem kleineren Aufnahmeformat verwenden. Die erforderliche Tubusverlängerung des Focotars wurde durch den Zwischenring Nr. 14020 K (15,5mm) und durch den BEOON-Ring "D" (34,5mm) erreicht. Das gerahmte Dia (Hamafix) wurde auf die BEOON-Bildbeldbegrenzung 1:1 gelegt und mit einem Blick durch die Lupe scharfgestellt. Nach dem Abblenden des Focotars auf 11 und dem Wechsel Lupe gegen Leica M8 konnte belichtet werden. Für die nächste Aufnahme eines Dias braucht man nur das Dia zu tauschen. Kamera und Schärfe brauchen nicht verändert zu werden, solange die Diapositive in einem gleichen Rahmen sind. Bei der Belichtung des Dias stand die Kamera auf den Modus "A" und als Belichtungskorrektur verwendete ich, je nach Dichte der Diapositive, einen Wert von -2/3 bis -1 1/3. Eine Kontrolle der Belichtungskurve auf dem Kameradisplay sowie das Arbeiten im DNG-Format ist zu empfehlen. Bei der nachträglichen Bearbeitung der Bilddateien am PC machte mir zunächst der Farbcharakter des Leuchtpults Probleme: das Leuchtpult hatte kein Normlicht. Die Farbtemperatur liegt bei 8.000 K° und dazu ein kräftiger Peak im grünen Spektralbereich. Die DNG-Dateien ließen sich nach einiger Übung gut mit dem Konvertierungsprogramm CaptureOne 7 und dem eingebundenen Farbtool "Farbbalance" ausgleichen. Ich bin mit den Ergebnissen, selbst von unterschiedlichen Diamaterialien, sehr zufrieden. Diese Dateien gestatten ohne Schwierigkeiten eine einwandfreien Ausdruck bis zum Format 30X40. Verfechter des analogen Fealings werden die sanfte Wiedergabe des "Filmkorns" schätzen. Das Digitalisieren der Dias auf diesem Weg kann ich als Zeitvertreib an Winterabenden empfehlen.

  21. I just made the move to digital Rangefinder from an M4, with the purchase of a used M8 from KEH camera. I also have a Leica X1. I am unsure if this is a common issue or normal for the M8. It seems at all ISO i have a few, what appears to be Hot Pixels pink blue and green colored, the number of "spots" increases with higher ISO. However when in play mode the photo displays these inperfections for a moment then the photo seems to correct and the Pixels or Spots are gone. Also these are not noticable in the photos only at extreame crops Does anyone know what this is, any help or advice will be greatly apriciated, could there be dozens of hot pixels? is this a issue with the sensor? Should i return this camera??
  22. OK SO i'm new to Leica and also Leica glass. I've tried a few CV lenses, but always felt that they lacked something that the only other lens i had 28mm Elmarit, seemed to deliver. I've just taken a few frames with this 50mm lens on my M8 and its filled me with a lovely warm feeling. now the lens came with a UVa 13206 filter fitted which is in perfect condition. Question: Do i find an IR filter e43 for this lens or is the feeling that i can resolve colour shifts in LR? again i'm new to Leica, so if the best solution is to replace the UVa or indeed, keep the IVa and resolve colours in PP. your help and advice would be gratefully received. andy
  23. I just bought an M8 camera in good condition with about 4750 shoots. Yesterday however something very strange happens. I had an 8GB 30 MB/sec San Disk card into the camera with various photos from last days. Yesterday I took some photos in 2 different places and I was able to see all photos in the LCD of the camera. When I put the card on my Mac Book Pro and C1 to retrieve the photos , to my surprise some of them was not there !! In fact I could see all photos of the previous days , I could see the last shoots of yesterday , but I lost all photos I took early yesterday !! What I also found is that for mysterious reason some of the last pictures, took the numbers of pictures I previously deleted !!! Not good to loose photos , never happens again all this years with various cameras ... Any explanation ? Has anyone similar experience ?
  24. My Leica M8 has a loose shutter leaf. I noticed it when all of the sudden a bright white stroke of light appeared on my photos. I made the loose shutter leaf conclusion after removing the lens and looking at the shutter. A loose shutter leaf is clearly visible. I hope I can find a solution through this community. I bought it two months ago as my first Leica. I'm missing it already.
