  2. Many M8 users have had screens die out on them. I have picked up a used M8 without a working display with the intention of using it as an Film shooting Digital storage Camera. Would appreciate any tips fellow shooters have to give in this regard. This thread would also serve as a one stop for anyone in a similar situation. One important contribution owners with working LCDs could give is key combinations to access functions.
  3. Taken recently in Rome...Fee Fee. M8 Nocti, 5.7 Iso1250 from inside the Pantheon. The light is truly amazing inside, but often very contrasty. I tried to get a softer look. Thanks for looking.

The workshop is free but we do have very limited spaces available. Further details can be found at the following link. Please call 0117 9291935 to book a place or email us at Bristol@LCEgroup.co.uk. We hope to see you there. Tom Greetham http://www.lcegroup.co.uk/EventOpen/?683
  6. Just got a brand new Sandisk Extreme 8GB 45MB/sec card SDSDRX38192A21. Could anybody here advise me on how to correctly " treat " my SD card? Here is what I customarily do: with camera switched off insert card in camera boot camera Format card in camera Shoot up to 10 DNG + JPG fine image pairs in about 5.5 sec with camera set to "S". Camera takes 54sec to completely write all buffered files to card. Switch of camera Remove card from camera. Lock card. Download card via Lexar USB 3 card reader LRW307URBNA. Eject card via Apple command ⌘ + E Unlock card Reinsert card in camera Reboot camera Reformat card in camera. Shoot new images Would you think this to be appropriate SD practice or do I need to change anything in my workflow? Much obliged, Mark
  7. What newer cards are reliable ? I lost 1/2 a shoot for the 3rd time this year. I am getting a bit paranoid because Lexar image rescue5 could not recover any of the files even after several attempts. While shooting I always randomly check on the LCD but then there is nothing on the card - how is that even possible ?
  8. My M8 LCD stopped showing anything. Leica Germany sent this back to me as it was not possible to fix as same to many other users have malfunction LCD display. (Also I was offered upgrade to M-P) It still take great pictures, setting was still same to what i want it to be so i would still use it. However, once it is back from attempt of repairing in Leica, time setting on camera was about 21 days and some hours off. As I know many of user have damaged LCD, are there any way to access to menu and adjust time?
  9. There are two negative pins and one positive on the Leica M8 & M9 charger. I put a meter on them and got readings I cannot understand - yet. They vacillate wildly within different voltage ranges. I've yet to apply the meter to a charged battery because the contacts are buried in plastic, but I will soon. Before I make an utter fool of myself, does anyone have an idea regarding the roles of the negative pins? Does one read the internal chip? Why do voltages change every second? One objective is to eventually read the internal chip to detect fake or defective batteries. .
  10. I know that the banding issue has been discussed in the past, but my searches have lead me to mostly high ISO concerns. This is different, and hard written into the file. Only happens at 640 and is not reproduced by trial and error. any thoughts?
  11. ... oder: Plätzchen backen mit der Oma. Leica M8 mit Summicron-M 2/50 (IV) (Mensch, ist diese Linse toll!)
  12. I can’t think of many instances where noise from the camera shutter, adds to the process of photography. Maybe some people-subjects like the sound, knowing the photo is finished… Some really clunky noises out there in camera-land. My Fuji 690SWII sounds like a toy spring shutter…and then needs a double wind… the Canon 60D is enormously noisy with a massive mirror slaps and recock combined. My most discrete cameras are the modern Canon Powershots…in-lens shutters…essentially silent. Even quieter than a Barnack... What was the sound of the Leicavit like??? The Motor-M also made noise. The DSLR clacking at press and presidentials. The M8 sounds like electro-mechanical film winding to me. Web research over the last 3 years since I became a Leica nut shows no references to the “nice sound of the shutter”. Everyone loves to hate the shutter-recock sound. A huge urban myth, I suggest. Perhaps it is an OK sound?? Some sound must be present due to mechanical settings and movements. (Is it another “myth”; like the pathological hatred of the UV/IR filters ??) But no sound at all is preferred…forget your black tape descretionairres... ... It seems it’s always the sound which attracts attention…. the din which discloses the discrete. Care to add anything on camera shutter noise?? The TLR leaf shutters where nice. The M8 delay recock is just silly really? Cheers Dave S

  14. Been years I've been wanting to shoot around Jakarta (Indonesia) and its satellite cities. Started around 5 years ago with a self-project called shoot Jakarta, and its basically a street photography around Jakarta from my personal cameras. But its been hiatus for 3 years due to my job. 2 weeks ago I finally got my hands on Leica M8, and restarted the self-project again. Hopefully, I can take some photos every weekend. Hope you guys like it. all photos taken with M8 + Voigtlander 28MM F2
  15. Guten Abend Leica Forum, ich bin seit einiger Zeit auf der Suche nach einer Leica M8/8.2. Bisher habe ich dafür Ebay oder Ebay-Kleinanzeigen genutzt. Leider sind entweder alle Angebot meiner Meinung nach zuteuer oder zuschnalle vergriffen. Ich werde dort weiter suchen aber, wollte fragen ob ihr mir auch andere Orte empfehlen könnt. Egal ob Online oder nicht. Sollte nur nicht allzu weit von Frankfurt entfernt sein. Vielen Lieben dank schonmal im Vorraus. Liebe Grüße Flo

  17. I have a question. I bought Voitlanger 40 mm f / 1.4 to filter Leica E43 UV / IR. Do you recommend to enable the Leica M8 menu function "on + uv / ir" or better left to the "off"? Voitlanger of course, is not encoded. I have the impression that the pictures from the "off" are more greenish than with "a + uv / ir." How do you have at home? Does it also affect the sharpness of jpg files is?
  18. Hallo zusammen, seit ein paar Monaten gehört mir eine gut erhaltene M8 und ein sehr nettes altes Summilux 35mm, die zusammen beim Fachhändler 1900EURO kosteten. Wg. einer nötigen Sensorreinigung hab ich beide zu Leica geschickt und um einen vollständigen Service-Kostenvoranschlag gebeten, der sich auf 1200EURO beläuft. Was tun? Lohnt sich das bei einer M8? Wäre über Eure Tips und Meinungen dankbar. Herzlichen, Peter
  19. Liebe LFB Freunde, hiermit laden wir Euch herzlich zu unserem "Sommer - Grillfest" am 16.07.2016 ab 17:00 Uhr ein und damit zum 3. LFB - Treffen 2016. Wir treffen uns am Samstag bei Andreas in Marienfelde. Themen, Vorträge oder Überraschungsgäste haben wir nicht geplant. Wir wünschen uns, dass Ihr gute Laune mitbringt, reden über dies und das und hoffen, dass Petrus mit uns ist. Bei schlechtem Wetter haben wir die Möglichkeit uns im Haus aufzuhalten - somit findet das Treffen in jedem Fall statt. Da dieses Treffen ein "Sommer - Grillfest" im Freien ist, laden wir auch herzlich eure Partner mit ein. Die Fotografie steht dieses Mal etwas im Hintergrund. Wenn der Wunsch besteht, wird eine kurze bebilderte Reise erzählt, wir entscheiden gemeinsam am Samstag Nachmittag darüber. Beamer und Leinwand sind vorhanden, so dass wir auf Tablets und Notebooks verzichten können. Pro Person erbitten wir eine kleine Kostenbeteiligung von € 10,00 vor Ort. Bitte meldet Euch verbindlich bis zum 13.07.2016 per Mail an LFB@mail.de. Nähere Informationen erhaltet Ihr nach eurer Zusage, wir bestätigen die Teilnahme und nennen Euch die Anschrift per Email.
  20. There are certain Leica Summilux 35 1.4 non ASPH lenses that are incompatible with the M8 or M9. I have one that is made in Canada. I looked everywhere to find clues on how to fix the issue. I found little pieces of information and I wanted to do everyone else a favor by taking a video of how I resolved the issue. First, to test if you have a problem - Set the focus to 3 feet (not to infinity). Mount the lens into your M8 or M9. Move the focus ring toward infinity GENTLY. If you feel resistance before infinity - stop. You have the issue. Now, to unmount, backup your focus ring to 3 feet again and then dismount. If you have the issue, do not try to mount the lens while focus is set to infinity. Bad. The problem - There is a shroud that sticks out (a black piece of aluminum highlighted in my video) at the back of the lens. This shroud increases in height as you move to infinity. The M8 and M9 body is preventing that shroud to further stick out while moving to infinity. I have highlighted in the video exactly which part of the shroud is hitting. I also show how I've done the job myself of shaving 1mm off the shroud to allow the focus to get to infinity without obstruction. There are illustrations that say measure 7mm from the bottom of the ring to measure exactly how much to shave, but my video shows what I've done and it works for me. I'm now a happy camper. Happy enough to share what I did. PS: I did not show it but I did tape the lens glass to protect it while I was grinding the shroud with my dremel tool. Here is the video for future adventurers: https://vimeo.com/275145377 Ronnie
  21. Dear All I wonder if anyone can give me some advice or help. We were burgled last week from north west London and all of my precious cameras have been taken. I don't have the reference numbers for the whole stash, but what was taken included an M2, son-1085967 with a 40mm/ f2 Summicron lens in a brown leather case an M8 body, fabrication number 3196666, VK number 10702 an M9 body body number 0384,with 35mm/ 2.8 summaron lens , son-2081257 There was also a 50mm/ f2 Summicron and a 90mm / f28 Elmarit as well as a Hasselblad 500C/M with an f/2.8 80mm and a f/3.5 100mm lens and my old Nikon FM2 with a 24 mm, a 35mm, a 50mm and an 80mm lens and a Canon 5D mk 2 body a Polaroid SX-70 an old battered Mamiya 645 in a metal case I'm devastated, not least by the M2/ 35mm which was the first Leica I bought, and which after a particularly terrible time working in DRC was the only thing that was evacuated with me. I wonder if anyone has been through the same devastating experience and can offer any advice? The police have done forensics/opened a case but is that all I can do? I’d be hugely thankful for any help/ lead in this All best Miriam
