  1. Disclaimer: I'm starting a new topic regarding the issues found in my newly purchased Leica MP, the purpose of this is to share any ideas that could lead to a solution, this is not a rant about Leica lack of QC which we all know is becoming an issue. After receiving my camera I run a roll of Kodak TriX 400, after developing the film I found a trace of scratches, I did several test with other films which I didn't develop (in case the scratches were being caused by my development process): Bergger Pancro 400, Ilford HP5+. They all show the same type of scratches. This is an undeveloped roll, https://ibb.co/RbxynrM https://ibb.co/8xkfs17 I found several threads with people claim the source of this issues was the pressure plate so I checked mine in order the find anything that could be the reason, the screws in the plate don't match the position of the marks in the film and the surface of the plate in my camera feels smooth and flat, I wondered if maybe the reason could be the bridge that has the connection for the light meter but after more inspection it was obvious that the plate keeps the very flat and it does not touch that area. I did another test in which I rub some film on the surface of the plate, to my surprise the film was very scratched, I did the same against the plate in my 1958 M2 and it didn't do a single one. I also did a couple of prints to verify the scratches appear and unfortunately the scratches are visible even on a middle size print. This is the print, the scratches appear in the top and the bottom https://ibb.co/VpKsdfb
  2. Hi All, my CLA'd 111f's will be arriving shortly, I'm hoping to use one for B&W and the other for Color,, This is just going to be a fun exercise, which films would you suggest? (It must be 20years since I used my film cameras, R6.2 & M6) - L
  3. I completed my first year of back to film (stopped shooting film in 2003 when digital became convenient). I did shoot digital for past one year as well and it was fun to compare. I shot around 32 rolls of film (mostly 36 frames each) and almost 90% was in M2 (rest on Nikon FM2 and Konica T2). Many were experimental but I did use it for my summer roadtrip and to capture life as well. I got around 86 pictures that I like very much. That is 7% of total. Still small but I was experimenting a lot. Around the same time I shot more than 6000 digital pictures (with M240 and Nex6 evenly distributed). I got around 4% keepers from that. How much do you shoot in one year? (Note: Nobody pays me, I shoot for myself) All my film keepers
  4. Kürzlich bin ich im Netz auf einige interessante Videos zu dem wohl relativ neuen Filmmaterial der Firma Silbersalz35 gestoßen. Es gibt vier verschiedene Versionen dieses Cine-Films: 050D & 250D (Tageslicht) sowie 200T & 500T (Kunstlicht). Wer hat Erfahrung mit diesem Silbersalz35-Cine-Film?
  5. I have one of leica c1 kirin beer limited edition and I want to know how many leica made this compact camera in limited?
  6. Hallo werte Leica-Forumsteilnehmer, vor gut einem Jahr hatte ich mich wegen eines Belichtungsproblems meiner R4 hier im Leica-Forum bereits zu Wort gemeldet (und weiss nun endlich auch, dass der kleine Elektromagnet, der die Springblende im rechten Moment stoppen soll, defekt ist. Alle bisherigen Reparaturangebote überstiegen aber bei weitem den Wert der Kamera, so dass ich mir als "vorläufigen" Ersatz für mein R-System eine zweite R5 zugelegt habe, die auch glücklicherweise tadellos funktioniert...). Ich möchte Heute aber ein anderes Thema ansprechen, welches mir schon seit einiger Zeit sprichwörtlich "unter den Fingernägeln brennt": Findet ihr auch, dass innerhalb von nur gut ein bis zwei Jahren das Preisniveau der Analogfotografie exorbitant gestiegen ist??? Klar, dass das fast schon unterirdische Preisniveau für alte Kameras, Filme, Entwickler & Entwicklungslabore von vor gut zehn Jahren längst Geschichte ist, nie mehr wiederkehren wird und sicherlich auch dem Fortbestand der filmbasierten Fotografie nicht unbedingt förderlich war. Nischeninteressen können durchaus kostspielig sein, und dazu gehört klassisches Fotografieren auf Film ja inzwischen eindeutig. Aber was jetzt gerade abgeht - ganz ohne Corona-Krise - ist nun wirklich teils schon absurd! Da werden etwa für uralte, abgelaufene 135er-Diafilme wie Agfa Precisa oder Kodak Elitechrome teilweise reinste Wucherpreise verlangt. Hier mal ein Beispiel aus dem bekannten Online-Auktionskaufhaus: https://www.ebay.de/itm/Fur-Sammler-1x-Agfa-Agfaphoto-Precisa-CT-100-36-Diafilm-Ablaufdatum-2014-12/223921237768?hash=item3422beef08:g:-OAAAOSwvRJeTrdi Aha, für Sammler also - ernsthaft?! Es gibt wirklich schon Leute, die jetzt unbedingt noch mal einen erst vor kurzem ausgelisteten Drogeriemarkt-Diafilm verknipsen wollen und bereit sind, derartige Wucherpreise zu berappen??? Bei den gebrauchten Kameras sieht es nicht besser aus. Auch hier meint wohl mittlerweile jeder windige, Opas Keller ausräumende Erbschaftler irgendeiner banalen Durchschnitts-Spiegelreflex, er habe das große Los gezogen und müsste hinsichtlich des aufgerufenen Verkaufspreises nun einen auf Fachhändler machen. Kam mir jedenfalls so vor, als ich unlängst eine Kamera für eine fotografierende Freundin aussuchen durfte, die nicht allzu teuer sein und einen PK-Anschluss haben sollte. Also mal bei Ebay-Kleinanzeigen nach alten Ricohs umgesehen, weil diese entsprechend eigener Erfahrung einfach, gut und robust sind. Doch dann kam tatsächlich nur sowas hier bei rum: https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/ricoh-xr-10-mit-zubehoer/1332175555-245-4619 Die gleiche Kamera - ich würde sie als ganz gut ausgestattetes Einsteigergerät bezeichnen - habe ich noch mit einem deutlich besseren 50er-P-Rikenon vor drei Jahren für sage und schreibe 15 Euro bei einem Fachhändler (!) als Wühltischfund erworben. Sie funktioniert übrigens ganz ausgezeichnet, was ich von den genannten Privatangeboten eher nicht erwarten würde... Ich bin wohl nicht der Einzige, dem dieses aktuelle Wucherpreisniveau auf dem Gebrauchtmarkt aufgefallen ist, auch der von mir sehr geschätzte Foto-Youtuber Steffen Schüngel hat dies unlängst thematisiert: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YN1hXQmbaNA Was meint ihr, findet ihr auch, dass die derzeit stark steigende Preisspirale im Endeffekt zu einer weiteren Abnahme an Filmfotografie-Interessierten - inzwischen soll das "Jammertal" ja schon durchschritten sein und wieder mehr auf Film fotografiert werden - und damit irgendwann zu einem selbst für den geneigten Leica-Nutzer kaum noch bezahlbaren Vergnügen werden könnte? Die verschiedenen Meinungen hierzu würden mich mal interessieren. Grüße an alle Leica-Fans, Anigrapher
  7. Immer mehr Flughäfen rüsten ihre Sicherheitsschleusen auf neuartige CT-Scanner um, auch in Deutschland. Sie bringen für Flugpassagiere deutlich mehr Komfort, Filme und Fotopapier werden hingegen bereits bei einem Durchgang durch die Geräte ruiniert – davor warnen jetzt Kodak Alaris und Ilford unabhängig voneinander. https://www.photoscala.de/2020/02/02/gefahr-am-airport-neue-ct-scanner-ruinieren-jeden-film/
  8. Life is pretty quiet photographically for me at the moment, mostly due to really bad weather with heavy rain which makes street photography almost impossible. This means I am continuing my journey through my archives, and this I had forgotten. It shows a typical English pastime - playing bowls. The white clothes are the standard dress for everyone, and afternoon tea is almost compulsory. English tradition at its best. Leica M3 + 50mm Summicron f2. Ilford 400 Delta. 1997.
  9. Hi everybody, I’m a computer science engineer who has been working, as a hobby, the last three years in a new, more precise, way of recreating film look with digital cameras. I’m posting here for feedback, in case anybody of you would like to test the application (with the M9) and show the results and your opinions. I usually shoot film photography but also I like the comfort of digital. The problem is that I’ve never been happy with existing film emulations. Mainly because of that, because they are emulations instead of simulations. METHOD USED For doing so, instead of doing a generic conversion for every camera, I’ve done a specialised conversion for the Leica M9 based on simulating the chemical process and spectrum response, instead of applying curves and other stuff. In the end, I thought, if analog and digital are just two instruments which capture light, I thought, maybe is there any mathematical conversion to make the digital to look like film? I mean, if I take the same photo with analog and digital, under exact same conditions (light / aperture / exposition /…) could I make them look exactly the same? It’s based on chemical simulation and the Leica M9’s response to spectrum. Then LUTs and finally some extra calibration. I think that it could be improved because I’ve used home made or open source tools for calibrating and so on, which are far from perfect. EXAMPLES (Analog vs Converted Digital) Following are some examples of Superia 200 and TriX 400. Click in each photo to see high resolution. DNGs shoots taken with Leica M9 (left), and FILM shoots taken with Minolta CLE (right) at same conditions (aperture / exposition / ISO). All shoots taken with Zeiss Biogon T* ZM 35mm f/2. The examples show several photos, which are the following: +------------------------+------------------------+ | original DNG | | +------------------------+------------------------+ | converted DNG | scanned FILM | +------------------------+------------------------+ | developed DNG | developed FILM | +------------------------+------------------------+ For the generated simulated negative TIFF file and the scanned TIFF file I’ve applied exactly the same develop parameters. TriX 400 - 1 TriX 400 - 2 TriX 400 - 3 Superia 200 - 1 Superia 200 - 2 Superia 200 - 3 Superia 200 - 4 Superia 200 - 5 Superia 200 - 6 CONCLUSIONS Tonal range - Biggest difference between digital and film Dynamic range - Digital is faaar more detailed in the blacks, film never gets burnt, meanwhile digital gets burn quite fast. Film has more microcontrast, it's more sharpen Digital is a little bit more contrast after developing, I imagine it’s because it reach white level faster, then, when doing autolevels with the developing program, as a result, it’s a more contrast image. DOWNLOAD I'm having a console application ready, if interest is shown it will be ready quite soon! CAVEHEATS / LIMITATIONS The program only accept DNG, because I need all the light captured by the camera, instead of a JPG already converted and really dependent on camera self made adjustments. The program only accepts photos taken at the ISO of the certain film that is gonna be used. For example, for TriX400 it will accept only Leica M9 DNGs at 400 ISO. I’ve also done tests with ISO 200 and 800, and the results were quite satisfactory but, for complexity reasons, I prefer to let it be native film ISO for the moment. Highlights are not always correct, and sometimes they look weird, mainly in color film. This is due to bayer sensor pattern and its different intensity response (for Red, Green and Blue channels). FUTURE (& PAST) WORK Leica M10-D Leica M8.2 THANKS Super thanks to the creator of LibRaw, a wonderful C++ library for working with RAW files. Any questions I’m open to answer 🙂 Best regards everybody. Tomás AKA “Camalogica”

    Got this new film..images on the lomo site looked quite interesting
  11. Hello everyone! I'm new to the leica film cameras but I came up a rather very nice iiif in great condition which comes with a summarit 50mm f1.5 going for about $550. This sounded like a pretty good deal to me, however, upon closer inspection the lens seemed to have a lot of haze (not sure about fungus) as when I performed the light test there were specks everywhere. It seemed to be internal and in the second glass?? Not sure how to fix it or if I even can, also the focus ring was pretty stiff (but that isn't a deal breaker or anything). Like I said, the body of the camera was in very good condition however the lens is my biggest concern. As most of you are owners/experts and such please help me out and let me know if this is a good deal or not. Thanks, Ashley
  12. Hello all, I am new to the forum and new to the Leica world too. I just moved over to a MP from a Nikon FM2n- great camera but needed something a bit quieter and something that I could focus more quickly. Anyways, had a quick question about cleaning the viewfinder. A neighbor of mine came by to check out the camera, and put a nice thumb print on the glass. I tried using a micro fiber cloth but that just swirled the oils around. I read online that you can use rubbing alcohol? Anyone tried this? Also, wanted to know if anyone had some thoughts on home developing. It is getting expensive and where I only shoot black and white I thought I might develop myself. Any thoughts on tanks and chemicals? Some people are really into the Patterson tanks and others hate them..any suggestions on where to buy metal tanks? Thanks for taking the time to read, and answer. Sincerely, Peter
  13. Post your mistakes. I love film and when things go wrong you can get some suprising results. Here's 3 double exposures from my M3 shooting Ilford Delta Pro 100. Oddly enough the double exposures are all in context and I really like them.

  15. I know folks talk about how shooting film changes the way they think of shooting but it just hit home with me. I'm a digital shooter also, I have a great rangefinder (In addition to my M6) that I love; an Epson R-D1x, so it's not either/or for me. However, I just realized something about how shooting film affects my shooting habits; I shoot differently with my M6 than I do with my Digi-cam. For example, I was out walking to my wife's work this morning at sunrise to give myself a chance to shoot some images on the way (something I've done dozens of times) but this time I found that I was waiting for the light to be right; I wasn't just shooting scenes that "might be good" but ones that (in my mind) seemed to be interesting and would look good in B&W. Whereas before I might shoot a dozen frames while walking and possibly none might even be good enough to convert to B&W to "see if it's good" this time I waited and waited for the light to come over the tree line and cast some interesting shadows and such before I pulled the trigger at all. I even saw a doe and her fawns on my street and sat down and waited until they forgot me and began to dart across the street in front of me. Before I'd have just shot a few images in different poses and chose the best one. It's not that film is more expensive per shot (though it is) it's that I know that when I pull the trigger, that's just the beginning of making an image happen, there is a LOT more work involved and I'll be darned if I'm going to waste my time developing, scanning and then culling an image in lightroom that I know will probably be mediocre at best...it's a complete waste of time. That's a good thing, and I hadn't realized that it was happening until just this morning. So far I'm on roll #2 and loving the process. I'm learning a bunch and having fun. By the way; my wife has polaroid 600 and this is me with her Zorki 4 and my M6 just clowning around.

  17. Film noob here. I've only shot digital so far and this is my first roll of developed negatives. I used Tri-X 400 in my M6, developed in New55 Monobath and scanned with a flatbed scanner; Canon 9000F II. I'm just not happy. I think (though I don't know) that it's a combination of lots of grain but mostly the scan is just "not quite sharp" not quite in focus. I scanned both using the film holders, and then going against the glass, and got better results against the glass with no holder. I'm also guessing that the Monobath developing is pretty grain-enhancing....true? In any case, here is a shot from my first roll. Any comments and suggestions to guide me are more than welcome.
  18. Howdy I've been pondering a Leicavit for my MP for some time now, however I'm not sure if it will work for me. As you can well imagine it's a fair chunk of money to drop without being sure. So my query is would anyone have one that I could borrow for a morning/afternoon just to test with a roll of film ? I realise this is asking quite a bit, but you don't know if you don't ask. I'm based in London and am more than happy to travel to meet up. Thanks in advance. .m
