  1. Good morning everyone! I'm having a problem with my M7, on my last trip in Morocco I’ve took some photos on Porta 400 with good results, except for a darker band on the left side of some frame and some vignettes on the corners. I'm more concerned about the band at the moment. Have you already had a problem like that? in my opinion could be the shutter but the problem seems to appear just when I shoot colour film. I’m kind of scared about a serious problem view the amount of electronic parts in the M7. I can’t show any samples because of the 2,44 mp limit unfortunately:( if you want you can go on my IG profile: randomcolora thank you in advance!
  2. Hello, I got back the photos I took with my M7 and Portra160 film. I am not sure if this a light leak o a developing issue. What do you think this might be? Thank you for your help.
  3. Hello members, I’m curious about the new Summaron-M 28mm 5.6 It’s Focusing tab stuck at the framelines selector and cannot go to close focus. Does this occurs to every M-body that has rectangle framelines selector? 😅 Thanks in advance Thatchapon
  4.  Hello from Japan. I bought a used Leica M7 because it was a great price with two lenses. I love the features and proportions of the M7. Most of all, I love the fact that the camera was born in 2002 (I have a personal attachment to 2002). Of course, there is the issue of the repairability of the electronic shutter.  Now, my Leica M7 that I bought is a bit scratched up. It's used, and it's an early model of the M7. But since it is my first Leica and I plan to travel with it until it is beyond repair, I want to freshen it up and make it beautiful. Initially, I was looking for a repainter, but I couldn't find one who repainted the M7, at least not in Japan. In the course of my research, I found out that Leica offers Redesign Options, and on Reddit I found a guy who had replaced the top cover of his M7.  Is it possible to revive the Leica M7 with Leica's Redesign Options? Also, has anyone done that? I would like to do an overhaul on my Leica and replace the exterior parts at the same time. There is not much information about that. If the replacement of the exterior is not possible, I would like to engrave the print on the top cover. Thanks in advance. P.S. I heard that Leica Japan is a bit unresponsive on that front, so I'm asking here.
  5. Hello! I bought my M7 last year and it started giving me issues when in aperture priority. I had put 50ish rolls through it before the issue started. When it is in aperture priority mode it does not give me the a shutter speed reading, it gives me the the the triangle and circles. When this occurs, two possible things can happen when I click the shutter button. The first thing that happens is no photo is taken; the shutter button does nothing. The second thing that occurs is the shutter goes off but it remains open. It stays open even if it turn off the camera. The shutter only releases when I move the shutter speed dial to to 60 or 125 (the shutter speeds that fire without a battery). Things I have tried. New batteries and changing the ISO speed selector from manual to DX. My questions: Does anyone else have experience with these issues? If you had a similar issue and sent it to Leica, how much did it cost? Thank you so much for your help, if this has already been answered a link to the topic would be appreciated.
  6. Hi there guys I was using kentmere 400 and when I was rewinding the film somehow the it ripped out So decided pull it by myself on changing bag Tried with the finger and no success. Tried with tweezers. Hooked in something and pull it out. It was spring Like pictured coming out form the take up spool area For now, all functions works. I can cock the shuuter and fire it, open the bottom cover and film count reset, film advance and rewind Any one have idea what this piece is for?
  7. Hello, Newbie post here! I purchased a really beautiful M7 back in February and initially sent it in to service for a shutter curtain and rangefinder calibration after finding flaws in the first few rolls back from the lab. The work was done in March and all seemed well. Now there's a new super weird and annoying problem and I'm curious if any technicians and fellow M7 owners have experienced this. When powering on, the first shot seems to lock up the shutter halfway when using electronic speeds snd auto mode. It sounds like the soft click of the front curtain opening for a long exposure, but never completes the exposure with that louder clack. I am able to complete the exposure jam by switching to one of the mechanical speeds and press the release. It then clacks and allows me to advance again. Here's the weird part: as long as I keep the power switch on, I can now capture normal electronic shutter speeds without issue. Once I turn it off and then on again, that first powered frame will lock up. I've changed the batteries (using Duracell DL 1/3N CR1/3N 3v Lithiums), the battery gate and contacts appear clean, the meter appears to be displaying and working normally. Literally just the shutter lock up on the first powered frame is the issue. The service technician is a bit stumped by this issue and has suggested that I keep the power switch on and only advance when ready to shoot, or live with the oddity to avoid having to pony up for what could be the need for a new circuit board. Anyone have experience with this issue? What is the going rate for a trip to Leica for a new board and CLA? Would it be less of headache to sell the body at a low price and live another day with an M6 or MP instead? Yes, I do dream of an MP... Thanks in advance!
  8. Hi, I have to choose between two mint condition cameras, one is a upgraded viewfinder M7 and second one is a m6 classic with a recent CLA. I like the M7 as it gives me the option for aperture priority IF I want. But the one thing that worries me is the electronics, compared to the M6 mechanical inside. Please advise as I need to make a quick choice. The price is not the factor i need help with just the talk around riliabilty and posabilty to service IF it breaks down in a couple of years.
  9. Hi dear colleagues, some time ago I asked what analog camera you would recommend for pro-use. I got a lot of helpful tips here and finally got a beautiful M7. Now I have shot my first full day wedding coverage with it. Tools: Leica M7 (MP viewfinder) with 35 Summicron IV and Artisan 50/1.1. Ilford HP5 pushed to 1600. (colorimages on Canon AE with 50/1.4 - so just ignore them) The film was developed in my guest-bathroom (na, now more a little foto-lab) Over the time of 13 hours I shot 14 rolls of films with the Leica and delivered 400 images. I am in love with this incredible camera and could not wish for any better tool to make my job (0: here you can see the images: https://just-schmidt.com/analog-wedding-photography/ I have been shooting weddings with the M9 and M240 for 2 years now, so the transition was nearly a piece of cake. Even the flash work went very well after I trained a bit at home and learned to remember some settings, even for off-camera-use. So I could extrapolate on the fly, depending on circumstances and distance. Now I am probably going to get a M3 to take my 50, so that I do not need to change lenses. have fun shooting, heiko

  15. Manama, Bahrain - Leica M7
  16. I was able to put a few rolls of CineStill film through my new (to me) M7 last weekend. If you haven't tried CineStill, you should give a shot! It's Hollywood movie stock that has been re-purposed for 35mm stills and normal C-41 processing. It comes in 800T (low light Tunsgten balanced) and 50D (bright Daylight). It's a really nice alternative to "regular" film. Forgiving and super easy to scan without a lot of fiddling around in post. There are some color casts for sure, but that's all part of the look. And the 800T has no anti-halation layer, so highlights get beautifully soft! Love it. All taken with the M7 0.85 + VM 50/1.5. "Scanned" with an A7ii + Tamron SP 90mm and lightbox. 800T - Very "Arty" color, and nice grain. 50D - Reminds me of Portra 160, but less grain, sharper and a little more "pop".
  17. Unterwegs bei schönem Wetter in der Eifel. M7 + sumicron50 + Kodak Portra160. Belichtet wie 100ASA, scan von Meinfilmlab. Bild wurde von mir verkleinert, wahrscheinlich sehr stümperhaft.
  18. The following picture was taken by a short trip to monschau, germany with my m7 and the new 28 elmarit. I love this lense! Dev&Scan MeinFilmLab
  19. Taken on the streets of Southampton last week using a Leica M7 with 35mm Summarit f2.5 and Fuji Neopan 400CN. Gerry
  20. It just shows how slowly I have been working because of what has happened, but this was on the latest roll of film back from the lab. Taken using my M7 and Fuji neopan 400CN film. Out of the box maybe for me, but I hope you like it: Gerry
  21. So, as you do, I was still on the quest for a perfect day bag for my 2 cameras: The Q and and M7. I have neoprene protectors, but was only taking one or the other out with me at a time and sometimes I still wanted something to put them into (one or both) when not shooting. I want to take both, but am very fussy about the amount I carry. Confused, yup! I had the Domke F803 but found the lack of padding and the width of the inserts all wrong for the Q and also got sick of adjusting the strap and the bag just generally getting in the way. I couldn't see a review for this one on the forum when I came across it, so here is the bag: http://www.artisan-n-artist.com/product_detail.php?id=271 This bag doesn't seem to have made much of an impact as I couldn't find any reviews or references to it but I think it has really slipped through the cracks of perfect bags for camera weight weenies. I didn't want to pay the new price ($240, I'm also a tightwad)) and found only one on that auction site for sale anywhere and at a very reasonable price. Adjustable shoulder strap (like the AnA one I have on the Q but wider and more robust) and just the perfect size, great padding and quite unobtrusive. Also it's left/right adjustable so you can have the bag on one side out of the way and the camera on the other and still room for another camera, lens, tablet, filters and spare batteries. If you have small lenses and want to travel light for the day and compact I think this is perfect! (nb. I have no affiliation with Artisan and Artist, but defo would if they gave me free stuff to review ) I think I've finally found the perfect day bag. I shall now have a day of rest.
  22. Hallo, folgendes Problem: meine M7 erkennt fälschlicherweise die Beschriftung vom Adox CSM 20 II als ISO-Code 3200 (obwohl der Film nicht kodiert ist). Manuelles Einstellen auf den korrekten ISO-Wert bringt keine Veränderung, der Wert bleibt bei 3200. Der kamerainterne Belichtungsmesser kann daher nicht verwendet werden. Der Vergleich mit einer anderen M7 eines Forum-Kollegen brachte das gleiche Resultat. Was also tun? Die Beschriftung der Filmdose entfernen und abkleben (Adox verwendet mit 100-ISO kodierte Dosen)? Beste Grüsse Jakob
