  1. Whenever I remove my SL2 battery, I lose all language, app, date and time settings, etc., and I'm forced to set them each time I remove the battery. Has anyone experienced this? I'm now charging with the usb-c port, but would like to figure this one out...... Cheers, Scott
  2. After a serious hike up Volcan Madera in Isla Ometepe, Nicaragua, I am fairly certain my M battery has given up the ghost. It doesn't turn on the camera anymore and stays in 'low charge' mode on the charger forever, occasionally giving the green and orange LED 'blinking' error when trying to charge. Perhaps some water got into it, or it is simply its time to go. Sadly, I don't have any way to get a new Leica M battery easily in Central America. Does anyone know if there's a possible fix? I've kept it in a bag of rice just in case some of the more moist tropical air was the culprit, b
  3. I posted this topic over on rangefinder forum here, but someone suggested i post here too. Gist of the situation; m240 camera, battery was around ~70% last night and ~95% a few days ago when checked it prior to my trip. (have taken ~200 shots on this battery so far) This particular battery recently started to display the "Check Battery Age" message about a month ago, but I believe I had just recently charged it. Maybe 2 weeks prior to this trip. I'm on a biz trip at the moment, so I didnt bring any spare batteries or a charger, so my test & diagnosis options are limited. I
  4. 37 months after the Leica M9 disappeared into the closet, the Leica M9 returned... I've been using the Leica M9 for the last five weeks and found it so pleasant to use that I decided to add a Page 19 to my Leica M9 article series. It also contains a dictionary of Leica words as well as a visual guide to the features of the Leica M9. Enjoy! Leica M9 Confessions by Thorsten Overgaard http://overgaard.dk/leica-M9-digital-rangefinder-camera-page-19-Leica-M9-Confessions-Definitions-and-What-is-That-Details-Explained.html
  5. I have not used my M9 for a couple of years and need two new batteries. Remembering the discussion years ago about generic batteries and wonder if anything has approved. Is it possible today to by generic batteries working OK with the M9? If anyone has succeeded in buying one please let me know where and how.
  6. During my last couple of trips in colder temperatures I've noticed that once temperatures get slightly cold the light meter of my M6 gets fairly unreliable. Meaning that the little arrows either don't show up at all, are barely visible or simply give me wrong meterings. I'm assuming it has something to do with the cold draining the batteries. But the temperatures I was in weren't exactly "freezing" - mostly between 0 and 15 Celcius (32 and 59 Fahrenheit) - so I'm not sure. Is this a common issue? Is there a simple fix? Maybe a battery thats more resistant to cold temperatures? Any
  7. Hi, The datat sheets state that the battery for the Q is BP-DC 12. A search for that model shows that the battery for the V-LUX4 is the same model. But is it really the same battery? On B&H site there are two listings with same model name and specs: 1: BP-DC 12 for Leica Q that costs $190 http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1160034-REG/leica_19500_bp_dc_12_lithium_ion_battery.html 2: BP-DC 12 for V-LUX 4 that costs only $79.95 http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/894736-REG/Leica_18729_BP_DC12_Lithium_Ion_Battery.html and of course there are third party batteries like the Wa
  8. Hi, I'm new here and I created my account because I desperately need help with this and would be grateful for any help I've been using my M6 for some time now and everything has been functioning perfectly However, when I bought some new batteries for it, the light meter would stop working, while if I put the old batteries back in, everything would work again. The batteries I have tested include, LR44 alkaline battery from energizer, and a CR-1/3N lithium battery. If anyone has any idea what the problem could be, and if there are any possible fixes, it would be greatly appreciated.
  9. Hi all, Sometimes when I insert a battery into the charger, after a few moments both LEDs come up flashing rapidly. If I remove the battery and insert it again, all seems to work fine. Is it the battery or the charger? Does it happen sometimes, or it's better to investigate it further? Thank you S.
  10. Hi, The R8 I purchased on eBay came with the motor and that's great. I would, however, like to get the standard battery compartment for the R8 for times when I don't want the extra weight. Can anyone recommend a source for this part? I have been in touch with Dave Elwell of Leica Camera in NJ and he says there are no such parts in stock in the US or Germany. Thanks in advance, Danny dszpiro@gmail.com
  11. The first time I charged my Q2's battery it went to the green "charge" light. Yesterday the battery indicator was red. so I charged it overnight. this morning both the green charge and the orange 80% are lite. does this mean it's not fully charging? I pulled it out and re-inserted it. the charge was blinking but then stopped after 5 minutes. the orange 80% is still lite.? to me this means it's stuck between 80-100%? ? Anyone else experience this?
  12. So, I recently bought a preowned m240 from a Leica store and realized there was a problem when I was charging the battery. The CHARGE LED would blink and after several hours both the CHARGE and 80% would be flashing at the same time. Tried it several times but the battery would not charge properly. I contacted the Leica store and told them what the issue was, so they decided to send me a replacement battery that was also used, but unfortunately, the issue still happens when I tried to charge the replacement. I'm planning on ordering one of the Nitecore USB chargers and maybe a new Leic
  13. Hello. I have a problem. I have Leica 60 type 240. I have a non-original charger (nitecore) I don't know how old the battery is. The charger is new. I bought it a week ago. While charging the battery the EE message appears after about 10 seconds. Yes, I know the manual says it is short circuit protection but what causes the short circuit? The battery? All in all, it doesn't make sense to me. Maybe there is someone from Poland who reads this and lives in Gdansk, Sopot or Gdynia and could help me? Or you know what could the reason be. Some people wrote that it was the charger
  14. Where can one find the battery charge level? What's the best way to extend the battery life? If I shoot DNG/JPG, where do the JPGs end up? I don’t see them when I import the files into Lightroom. Are they the ones transferred over to the Leica Photos? If one shoots A for aperture, shutter speed, and focus, is it the same as Full Auto in Scene Mode? I notice the photos I take in Black and White turn to color when I import them into Lightroom. Importing the B&W photo into Leica Fotos shows it is B&W, which I assume is so that it can be shared. My question is: Are th
  15. I recently bought a NOS TL. I'm still figuring out the best way to use it - but nevertheless, so far, it's hard not to like the camera. One issue that I have with the TL does not seem to be normal however: when I remove the battery for charging, and the camera is without battery for eg one night, I loose all settings: date and time, and the settings in which I was working before I removed the battery. Saved profiles are still there. Just a problem with the internal battery, or… normal for a TL? Marc
  16. I really like my Q. That said, nothing is perfect and one of the weaknesses of the Q is that it is power hungry. Even though I have automatic review turned off and EVG-LCD set to EVF Extended so the LCD is rarely powered I only get about 100 shots/battery charge. That is a guestimate -- I've not actually bothered to note the exact number of images. In addition to the stock battery, I bought two Wasabi work-alikes. They were cheap and reportedly made in Japan using good Japanese cells. Also, where the stock battery is rated at 1200 mAh the Wasabi batteries are rated at 1400 maH. 16% m
  17. Am sorry, am in hurry, leaving for Alaska. I got this unit while buying DMR but don't know what this is for. Can somebody please let me know about it- http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=344915062307079&set=a.344915045640414.1073741826.141740022624585&type=3&theater
  18. Before I owned the M6, I used to have the Canonet QL 17 GIII. It was working perfectly until I stopped using it for 3 months. The shutter got stuck. When I took it to the repair shop, they asked if I have left the battery inside as the shutter/ self timer is very sticky and dry. So I'm wondering if I should remove my M6's battery when not in use to prevent shutter jam?
  19. Dear all I just got a nice Leicameter MR 4 No 94991 for my M3. How do I know which battery I need? I have both an EPX625G (Alkaline 1.5 V) and a Wine Cell MRB625 (1.35 V). I read that originally the Leicameter was designed for the Mallory PX 625 1.35 V battery, but later models were adjusted for 1.5 V Alkaline. How do I know which model is mine? Can you please help? Thank you in advance. Regards Swiss leica fan
  20. I know there were many threads about this with the M8....but I didn't have the problem then, and this may be a different beast? I have two batteries....one works perfectly and charges fully, the other was fine also, but now didn't charge at all (once, yesterday) and then charged only halfway, at least according to the INFO meter.... It is a somewhat older one (left over from M8 days)...is this a sign that the battery is dying (it isn't really that old and hasn't been used that much) or that the INFO might not be correct? Or that the camera might be reading it incorrectly somehow?
  21. Being frugal with money so I can save for my travels, and having good experience in the past with Chinese batteries I ordered a $12 (shipping included) battery for the X1 on eBay to try out. I figured I'd share my experience with you folks here in case there's some other's looking for a less expensive battery alternative. Since the X1 doesn't use "smart" batteries like my DSLR, the kind that have unique electronic serial numbers with communication to the camera to monitor performance and shutter clicks per given battery, I wasn't concerned with using non-OEM batteries. There's no electro
  22. Hello, We've been using DIGILUX 1 for couple years now and we like it a lot. We bought the camera used and since the beginning it drains a battery while not used. It is very annoying to pull out the camera and realize the battery is empty. Is it normal? Can we do something about it like change some settings etc.? I tried to get a new battery which did not help. Thank you, Radovan
  23. Hi, I just found this website that seems to sell some kind of M8 and M9 generic batteries for very cheap (compared to Leica products) I was wondering if anyone had used these batteries with the M9... At this price it's a real bargain, but I don't want to waste my money... Any thoughts? Thanks!
  24. Has anyone experience of using Lumix branded comparable batteries instead of Leica on the D-Lux 3 or on any other Leica models? I am assuming they would be compatible, and/or does someone have some suggestions please are.
  25. I've had the Nitecore charger for few years without problems charging batteries for M240. Just bought couple of new BP-SCL2 batteries at very attractive price via FEDEX from Hong Kong. When I try to charge them for first time with the Nitecore there appears the " EE EE " message indicating shorted battery. HK seller now says that I must "activate" them via first time charge from original Leica charger. Said original charger is misplaced or lost somewhere over past few years. So two questions: 1. Is it true about having to "activate" a BP-SCL2 with original charger? 2. If so, is there
