lykaman posted a topic in Leica M (Type 240 / 262)Hi all, trying to understand the following:- does the 262 suffer exposure wise because it only has One metering choice? Does it lower the Keeper ratio? My M-P240 had various choices which obviously helped in difficult situations, even my D-Lux 7 has metering choices.. L
Faulty exposure meter on MP
simonwesterlund posted a topic in Leica M-A / M7 / MP and Film MHi guys! I'm new to this community and I've been a passive member untill now, and I need your help. I've recently upgraded from a Leica M6 to a mint condition second hand Leica MP chrome, and I'm in love! The build quality is just perfection. However I started to get anxious when I got my latest roll back from the lab, and it was very underexposed. I blamed the lab, because the roll should be pushed +2. Yesterday I was shooting outside and then I realized the exposure meter was giving me some weird readings. When I got back home I double checked with my M6 and Lumu light meter, both of them suggested times that were 1.5 stops under the MP. For example I got the same reading when I changed my ISO on the MP from 400 to 150. I started to investigate and then I thought, maybe the batteries are out. Now it gets really interesting. I bought new batteries and voilà, the readings were the same, but then I loaded the MP with a roll and the readings were back to -1.5 stops again. Is there someone out there that could point me in the right direction? Or experienced the same even? I really don't like this, because I don't think the camera has any warranty left. Best, Simon
