  4. Hallo Zusammen. Ich habe einen Gastartikel, ehrlich gesagt zwei und zwei folgen noch, zum Thema "(Reise)Fotografie mit Stil" auf www.fratuschi.com geschrieben. Dieser Artikel bezieht sich auf meine Lieblingskameras von Leica: https://fratuschi.com/leica-m-kamera/ Da es sich hierbei nicht um die ├╝blichen Reviews und Erfahrungsberichte handelt, sondern eher um eine humorvolle Auseinandersetzung mit dem manchmal zu verbissen betrachtetem sch├Ânsten Hobby der Welt, dachte ich der Artikel w├╝rde vielleicht einige von euch interessieren. Wenn nicht, oder wenn ich gegen die Foren-Regeln versto├če, dann bitte ich um Entschuldigung und werde eine L├Âschung dieses Postings in dem├╝tiger Haltung erdulden. Mehr Spa├č hat man ├╝brigens, wenn man den ersten der vierteiligen Artikelserie (es folgt noch die Hasselblad X1D, die hier vermutlich eh keinen interessiert und das weite Feld der Kamera-Accessoires), zuerst liest: https://fratuschi.com/reisefotografie-in-style-stilvolle-tipps/ Viele Gr├╝├če und viel Spa├č beim lesen. Audemar
  5. 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.

    I'm torn between getting the Leica M10 now or waiting for the MP10 to come out .... I need your opinions... current setup: Leica M9 help me sleep at night
  9. With two significant repairs to M7s, one under warranty, I've decided to start using my MP I was fortunate to get. Although I am so careful with these cameras, I am just getting tired of not being with them, and I hear MPs are "more robust." Not having Aperture Priority Auto is really far less of a big deal as I just go back to "Sunny 16" and fine tune the shutter speed if I have time. The dial rotation is literally driving me nuts; are there any of you that have a way of remembering? How about the dial stop - that has me looking to the top. Then I have a few questions: Do you all set the dial to "OFF?" Do you wind the shutter to the next frame and then turn shutter dial to meter "OFF?" Do any of you use a soft shutter button, cable release or Leica self timer APDOO OZTNO combination with MP? Believe it or not, I actually like the MP rewind knob. I know I'm weird. Thanks in advance for replies.

  11. Hello guys , I just bought a 21mm Elmarit f2.8 lens (the old one) for my Leica MP Typ 240. Really enjoyed the lens. I just noticed that its min focus distance is 0.7 while i read on the internet that you can find a version that focus at 0.38. Any other differences between the two lenses ? Somebody here have experience with the close focus version ? I took some Street Pictures and wrote a little article for my blog: www.walkingphotographer.net/blog/21mm-street-photography Thanks for your time ! Eolo www.walkingphotographer.net
  12. After owning the MP for about a year I decided to write some of my experiences with this camera, and with film cameras and the film process as a whole. Check it out: http://indergaard.net/2016/02/26/leica-mp-review/
  13. Hello all, I am new to the forum and new to the Leica world too. I just moved over to a MP from a Nikon FM2n- great camera but needed something a bit quieter and something that I could focus more quickly. Anyways, had a quick question about cleaning the viewfinder. A neighbor of mine came by to check out the camera, and put a nice thumb print on the glass. I tried using a micro fiber cloth but that just swirled the oils around. I read online that you can use rubbing alcohol? Anyone tried this? Also, wanted to know if anyone had some thoughts on home developing. It is getting expensive and where I only shoot black and white I thought I might develop myself. Any thoughts on tanks and chemicals? Some people are really into the Patterson tanks and others hate them..any suggestions on where to buy metal tanks? Thanks for taking the time to read, and answer. Sincerely, Peter
  14. I purchased a new Leica MP some time ago, and I've been seeing bright stripes on my scans frequently ever since. I assumed it was the scanner - dust on the glass or the sensor or something similar. Recently my wife started scanning her negatives however, and she has a Leica MP too, albeit a n older one. She did not get the same bright stripes in the scans as I do. Our development process is the same. The same gear is used. A lot of our film are even developed together at the same time in the same tank, and for our color films the same lab has developed them. It happens with all the film I've tried: TX400, HP5+, Silvermax 100, Acros 100, Portra 400, Superia 200, Fuji Pro 400h, etc. So I recently started to inspect my negatives, and to my surprise there is a dark stripe on them, that matches what I'm seeing in the scans. I've checked the back plate of the camera, and it's clean without any sharp edges as far as I can see or feel. I've attached a few images that clearly shows the stripes on the negatives and how the scans looks. Does anyone have any idea what this could be caused by? Negative: Scans:
  15. I am new to film Leica and have problems with loading the films. It should be easy but it is not for me. I think I am doing something wrong and need some help. 1. the spool: in the MP spool there are 3 metal leaflets that turns. Do I insert the leading end of the film into it (like between 2 metal leaflets) or around it? 2. my 2nd roll did not stop after the last frame. So it just kept going forward after frame 38... then I cannot rewind. I think it is ripped off on the last winding. How can this happen? I had to open it (exposed it) and then used a forceps to remove it. 3. there is no indication that the film is properly loaded like the "turning knob" on the M7, M6 that i have read and viewed on you tube. How can you tell? 4. next is How to do longer exposure than 4 seconds on MP? can you give me a website where I can read about it?

  20. Adox Silvermax. Yes, I really like this film. Not as 'pictorial' as D100 but it has grittyness with guts and depth. Streedagh was a good place for a first outing with it. Takes me back. Leica MP 35mm Summicron asph Heliopan O22 Adox Silvermax

  22. I'm about to buy a factory new film Leica, and my choices are Leica MP and Leica M-A, and one thing, that could help me make the decision, is how bright the viewfinder is. I know of the difference between the two cameras, so my only concern, prior to buying, is the viewfinder, since i find mine (Leica M6) to be a bit to dim in certain situations, and annoying when flaring. Does anyone in the forum know how the viewfinders of the MP and M-A are compared side by side? Which camera has a brighter viewfinder?
  23. In a months time or so, i'm gonna buy a companion for my trusted M6 manufactured in 1998, and i've decided, it's gonna be the MP. I can get a silver MP for a really good price at a dealer. I can get the black as well, but i don't like the high gloss black finish, so this really isn't an option for me. The only thing, i wan't to change, if i buy a black à la carte, is the black finish to the more durable black and a viewfinder without the 135 mm frameline, since i only shoot 35 mm. The price difference in total will be 1300 USD, if i choose the à la carte, where i "only" do get the matte black finish and the viewfinder with a clean 35 mm frameline, over the standard silver. I intend to keep it, and not selling it after some years. Is it worth the 1300 USD? Meaning; will i be 1300 USD happier in the long run just for the matte black finish and a clean 35 mm viewfinder? What's your opinion?
