  1. I'm left handed and I think that makes my left eye dominant but not sure. Anyway when I bring the Q to my eye, instinct is to use my left eye. Given the design, I have to think that 'rangefinders' are meant for right eyed use, allowing both eyes in use? Is it possible to train myself to use right eye and keep left eye open? Any one have experience with this problem? I think I've read that gun owners are told to keep both eyes open when using a scope? Is it not worth worrying about, and just use my left eye with right closed?
  2. I bought an M4 about a month ago and have been really enjoying this wonderfully engineered machine. However I am wondering if the shutter timings are correct. My first outing resulted in most things being underexposed and I put that down to my lack of experience in shooting a meterless camera using sunny 16. The day was heavy overcast so f5.6 should be right. However I had 400 tx loaded so I expected f11 to be about right for a shutter speed of 125. I shot mostly at f8 and was therefore surprised to find my film underexposed by 2 to 2 stops. Next outing I decided to use my mobile phone
  3. Leica Q - Observations and Queries I have been thoroughly enjoying using my Q these last 9 days. It is quite a camera, and a worthy companion to the M240 (or is it going to be the other way round?!). The performance of the camera is fantastic. The exposures are far more accurate than the M240 and I must ‘unlearn’ over-compensating in bright, back-lit and dark situations! The AF is astoundingly quick and accurate in bright and averagely lit scenarios, and still pretty good in low light ones. Its size and weight are just about right, a nice balance. Its quiet shutter, fast operation and clea
  4. Hi, I've just recently purchased a Leica Q to add to my Nikon D-SLR system and just today I also updated the firmware to ver. 2.0. I'm using the camera in aperture priority mode and single-shot mode 95% of the time I'm using it. But only today I noticed something strange; when I use it in continuous [C] shooting mode, the exposures after the first one are different than the first one (and all except the first one being the same). As if the camera does not lock the exposure parameters after it's done with recording the first shot. This is not strange by itself, because the camera should
  5. Just wondering ... Does the T have a tendency to overexpose? What I see in the Visoflex or on the display in live-view appears darker than the resulting shot.
  6. My Leica D-Lux 3 that displays (1) a purple color shift for white colors in bright light; and (2) a photos show a green or yellow tint in low light. I have looked over the presets and defaults. I cannot find a switch that improves the display. I believe that the exposure sensor is damaged or malfunctioning. Otherwise, the camera is in good shape cosmetically and according to a review of the presets and default, working correctly. A used replacement on Ebay is about $150 to $200. My questions are: -1- Can I send my camera to the Leica repair for a new sensor for th
  7. IN BUILT LIGHT METER HELP! Hey Guys, I am totally new to the forum and digital Leica's. So hello everyone :-) I am a professional photographer from Australia, I have shot a number of cameras over my career much like most of you all, here is a sample list so you can get some context of my experience with different systems and therefore my experience with different in built light meters. Nikon FM's Contax G2 Contax T2 Leica M's (film) Mamiya RZ's / RB's Hasselblad 500's Pentax 67's Linhof Technika's Over the last 5 years I have been shooting digitally with: Phase one Fuji X I have re
  8. I'm wondering, has anyone had instances where two takes of the same subject, same framing, same manual exposure settings but with auto SIO taken within a couple of seconds of each other are taken with very different iso values. It's not happening a lot and at first I put it down to imagination but it's happened enough now that I'm pretty sure it's real. I wondered, maybe, if sometimes it takes a bit of a while for the ISO to adjust and it's firing before the change has been made. Or something.
  9. Hi Guys, I've been using my M6 TTL without an issue for sometime and then I left it dormant for around a year when I left the country... Now the meter wont work , the M6 would work fine and still take pictures if exposed correctly with an external light meter, but the mechanism now would not turn on. I'm based in NYC and have sent it to the Leica repair and they sent it back saying that they can't fix it because they "no longer have the parts", I contact Sherry Krauter and she said that she gets her parts from Leica, so if they don't have it, she won't either. So really now I'
  10. Hi, Can anyone tell me why two films on an M5 are partially unexposed ? On the first film, only the last two frames were exposed, and on the second film only 6 non consecutive frames out of the 36 were exposed. I have excluded reasons such as forgotten lens cap, ASA adjustment, battery problem, bad aperture/speed adjustment. It seems to me like it could be a shutter problem, but can there be another reason? Can a badly loaded film be the cause ? Does anyone have experience of this ?
  11. Hi, I just have a M3 camera here to try out. But I have not really any idea how to use a camera without light meter. So the question is on one hand - how to use a M3 without a ight meter to get the right exposure (ISO Aperture and Speed) - and on the other hand this is not sticky to a M3 but how to use any camera without light meter. Thanks for any help which is highly appreciated. Any links to online help also welcome - I already asked google but did not do a great job. Regards AHAB
  12. I bought my Leica Monochrom September 2013. Not only was it my first rangefinder, but also my first experience with Leica and I must admit that this has been a revelation for me. Like many of you it took me a couple of months to get used to iy but now I feel more and more confident shooting with my “Back Beauty” However, I am still struggling with these blowing Highlights. I already bought a 3 stop B&W ND filter but still… Reading this forum I understand that many others have had the same issue. I tried to expose for the highlights but then I tend to have pictures with a lot of shado
  13. I am off on a ski trip to Switzerland in a couple of weeks and am planning to take my MP with me and a load of film. I am reasonably new to film and the MP and would love some feedback on the following; 1. Exposure in snow conditions and particularly film selection for this. I would like to shoot E6 but am worried about its limitations to over or under exposure. Am I better shooting with something else? 2. I am expecting the MP will live up to the cold conditions without too many issues? 3. I have never travelled internationally with film - I assume carry-on X-ray machines are ok? Any feed
  14. Back in late autumn 2007 my Digilux 2 suffered sensor failure and it was shipped back to Leica UK for repair. This was the time time they were offering Digilux 3's cheap as an alternative to a repair. Obviously I took the opportunity to buy the DL3 at around half price as it appeared a good deal. However, 6000 pictures later I still appear to be disatisfied with exposure on many photos. This is despite having used the autobracket function extensively. In reality I have probably taken 2000 photos with this camera as I generally take three shots. The problem I find is
  15. Hello everyone! I am a film noob (photography noob too), and I am expecting my first ever film Leica M to arrive tomorrow. It's a M6 "classic." I haven't used film since ... the 1990's. My film camera back then was a fixed lens, fixed focus, point and shoot that I paid either $10 or $20 for at Walgreens. I am trying to figure out which type of film works for which type of lighting situation. On my digital M (and any other digital camera that I've used), I just dial in the proper ISO to get the desired shutter speed at a given aperture. For film, it would appear that I can't really do t
  16. It seems that one could do a simple test to see how many stops of exposure move an illuminated object from "blue" to "red", or from one end to the other of the so-called 'raw histogram'. Anyone with an MM have a chance to give it a go?
  17. Hi, I use an M6 since one year and since the last few months the light metering has a problem. It happenes most of the time in low light situation, the camera indicates me a good exposure which is in fact over exposed of usuallty few stops.. for exemple i m using a tmax 400 the real light is f5.6 at 1/30 so he will indicates me f2.8 at 1/15 ... i need to shake the camera to help him to give me the real exposures on the one side, it teaches me how to read the light less or more, but on the other, it's very annoying when i need to photograph quickly and i have these mistakes. i ve cha
  18. For unknown reason(s) an oddity is happening with indicated exposure times seen in viewfinder. After making an exposure, for the next two exposures there is no variation in indicated exposure time when panning about with camera. After the third exposure, the indication again varies properly as you pan about different scenes. Then repeats. As if there were an unwanted exposure lock mode in effect for 2nd and 3rd shot of a 3 shot sequence.. Cannot find any obvious settings error likely to be the cause. The bracketing is set to 0. Tried to reload latest firmware but it "completes" in ab
