I have been a long time reader of this forum and bought my M9 in April 2010 after reading many post here. However, this is my first post. Last night I was taking photos at my daughter's party when from one shot to the next, the camera went haywire. I have attached photos to illustrate this and I have no idea what is going on. One moment it was taking photos normally and the next....this. This morning I have tried the following things to see if I can have any effect on the behaviour: Experimented with varying ISO and shutter speed Turned camera on and off several times Reset camera to facory default settings via menu Changed lenses (VC 35 f1.2 to Summicron 35) Removed and replaced battery The firmware is version 1.116 (as originally received from factory). The camera has never malfunctioned before. There are several issues occurring as you can see from the images: There is a distinct division of the image left to right, with a clear vertical line. The left side is darker. White balance is abnormal and different on each side of the image There is some "smearing" of colour in some photos, not all In some photos (very dark) there is a vertical zonation apparent on the right hand side I am gobsmacked and at a loss to explain what has happened. Would appreciate any thoughts that you might be able to offer on this.
The lug strap eyelet from my M9 just disconnected from the body. As I had wound the strap around my wrist several times it didn't drop on the ground. After recovering from a slight heart attack I could continue with my assignment but in the afternoon the camera showed "shutter fault" and stopped working. frank
