  1. This morning my beloved d-lux4 survive to a accident. When a decide to put my camera into the pocket it slips near the pocket and hit a hard ceramic floor. I don't have quite long legs but was some distance. Lucky, the camera balanced and felt almost on entire back lcd surface. I turned on and everything seems to work fine, lens, focus, display. Unfortunately and curiously the lens cap suffer a fatal damage by losing one interior grip part and become useless. However, I used to think about install a Ricoh 3flaps auto-open cap. After all and even small Leica quality was proved once again.
  2. I was just about to wrap up after taking a few shots of my empty apartment when the tripod somehow slipped out of my hand and bang! The Leica hit the hardwood floor. First I was in shock, but at least the body itself didn't even have a single dent. I tried to turn on the camera, the screen showed up and the controls seemed to work fine, but then the camera seemed to have a problem with the shutter release. It just kept going and going and going, the same sound you hear right after taking a picture, just that it would repeat about two times per second non-stop. This was of course frustrating. I took off the lens, opened the battery cover, changed the battery, turned the camera on and off etc., the same non-stop shutter sound came back again. I am sure many of you would never consider opening the M8, but I am not that kind of person. I thought I should give it a try at least, to see if it was maybe just a simple problem, maybe something got stuck. After unscrewing the screws under the batter cover, I was able to remove the plastic cover, which then revealed part of the shutter mechanism. And there it was--it was indeed stuck. I carefully moved it back into position, screwed everything back together and was quite relieved because it worked The camera doesn't show any symptoms anymore whatsoever. After taking a couple of test shots, it appeared that the camera is back to normal again. I thought I would share this experience--not that I suggest taking the camera apart if something goes wrong, but if it's a similar problem to mine, it may be well worth it. Attached is a test shot (with default automatic settings, nothing spectacular, just my wonderful Musical Fidelity amp). DrTebi
