  1. This might be a stupid question and many have been answered in some form before. I have an M6 TTL 0.72 and a Summicron 35 f2 ASPH, both in Chrome. First off, I love film and shooting, but other things have over the past few years have taken more of my time. I typically only pull out the M6 during extended vacations/travel, which seems to be once every 2 years. For everyday photos, we pull out the cheap-o digital point and shoot. Film is great, but scanning is a hassle (used to be fun). Also film is getting harder to find locally. I feel like the anyone with a good point and shoot c
  2. Back in 1997 and again in 2000 I took part in workshops/retreats organised by the New Hampshire Society of Photographic Artists on a small group of islands called the Isles of Shoals off the coast of New Hampshire. I was the only "outsider" there, being from England. The trip was extended both times to make the travel worthwhile. I shot mostly black and white using Kodak T400CN so I could get it processed locally and not worry about x-ray damage at the airport. In 1997 I used an M3 and in 2000 it was an M6. I have recently been invited my the Portsmouth Athenaeum to add my images to thei
  3. Hi, I'm new to Leica and I'm looking into small-ish lens for everyday use. Which one of these (assuming all are in good condition) would you recommend? Prices are: Summicron €389 (little haze) Elmar €499 Modern Elmar-M €660 Leaning towards the modern Elmar-M but I have zero experience with leica lenses. Thank you!

    The Drag Queen

    Just selected by LFI for their gallery. Leica M7 with 35mm Summarit f2.5 and using Kodak Tri-X lab processed. Permission given by drag artist to photograph. Gerry
  5. When I was a young child my summers were spent walking the 600 or so metres from my home to the nearby river to play in its clear waters. Now close on 70 years later this image reminds me so much of those happy days. That is the power of photography. Leica M6 + 50mm Summicron f2 - Kodak T400CN film - ©1997 Gerry

  7. 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.
  8. Sorry to have such a general post. However I just wanted to see an assortment of opinions regarding the summicron 28/f.2. Quality, contrast, detail. It's signature, etc. Mostly for film. Thinking of purchasing the 2008 version. Any opinions or photos welcome; film/or digital. Thanks, richard
  9. Hi! Today I received a batch of negatives which I had processed and scanned at a dedicated b/w lab. Usually I do the scanning myself, but this time I needed some quick results to check the technical validity of some vintage cameras and I had little spare time available. These scans are low res jpeg and only substitute for contacts. I am thinking of re-entering the dark abodes of home-developing, especially after reviewing the result that I want to query this forum about. Seven rolls of TriX, TMax and HP5 from diffeent cameras (M3, IIIf, M7) came out fine, but one roll of film (TMax) fr
  10. I just got my first Leica M6 and am (of course) trying everything out extensively. Unfortunately, I am facing the known problem with the frame counter that is not resetting to zero when opening the bottom of the camera. The camera goes back to the seller next weekend to get this fixed. In order to discover everything else that might need some attention, I have two silly questions: 1) How do I notice that the film is fully exposed? Even when reaching the max number of frames on the film roll, I can still wind the rapid-advance lever and also press the shutter release button like for normal ex
  11. https://vimeo.com/208254533 A short video clip I made on SL with Summarit 35/2.4 in L-log and graded in FCP X as Arri Log C footage. Wanted to finally see what can be done with those L-log files. Not bad results, looks really promising. Anyone here has any experience with making films on SL? How do you capture the footage, how do you colour grade later? What LUT do you use? I've looked at buying some extra LUT loaders and use some custom LUTs but decided that it's not really needed. I can work with what's in the Apple Final Cut Pro X quite effectively it seems. How about you?

    Berber Children

    Two small Berber childen, one shoeless, and wearing dirty dresses sit outside their cave home in Tunisia. This is from 2002 when North Africa was a safer place to visit. I wonder where they are now? I used a Leica M6 and I think this was taken using the 50mm Summicron f2. Gerry
  13. Hey guys! Currently new to the whole Leica barnack scene and was wondering if you could give me helpful tips that could aid in my journey. I recently inherited a Leica III + Elmart 50mm 1:3.5 and have started using it. I do have a general understanding but was hoping you guys could provide some valuable insight as to the best way to use this gem. Thank you!

  15. Here is an interesting story of how one man's photographic journey went full circle, bringing him back to his roots in film photography. He shows some interesting images along with the essay : http://emulsive.org/articles/return-to-film/my-return-to-film-adib-mufty
  16. Photos from a day spent hiking around the mountains near my hometown. All shot with my Leica M6, 35mm Summicron IV and on Kodak Portra 400 film. Would love to see you over on instagram: https://www.instagram.com/_philippw._/
  17. Shot this with my then newly acquired yet lovely beat up M6 classic. Expired Konica film and 50 cron. Walked into a tailor shop and snapped one of his creations. Something about this capture that works for me.
  18. One or two shots out 36 exp will have a straight strip of light down the side. Any advice or suggestion on cause, many thanks.

  20. I found my old trusted Leica SL mot in the glass cabinet today and took it out and gave it a new Tie Her Up Rock'n'Roll strap. Now I have to decide if I want to bring it with me to Asia for the next two months or not ... hmm Here's my article on the Leica SL mot: http://www.overgaard.dk/leica_leicaflex_SL_mot.html
  21. Hey, I went to Vietnam this summer and shot a series that was among other featured on the leica camera blog. You can check that out here: http://blog.leica-camera.com/2016/09/25/lounging-in-vietnam/ But of course I shot a lot more than just those few images in the series! So I still had a ton of photos from my trip to Vietnam buried in Lightroom. I haven’t posted any of them anywhere because I couldn’t really figure out how to arrange them in a story that would make any sense. Also most of these photos are a tad too touristy for my taste. But since I still really like them and can
  22. I'm fascinated by Leica heritage and Leica lenses. I figured I would like to give film a try before going digital. Not knowing much about film cameras, I'd like to have some advice about which film Leica camera to buy, where to buy film and the best developer/scanner (possibly by mail, in the UK). Thank you,
  23. I took this in my home town of Southampton using the Leica M7 and Zeiss 50mm Sonnar f1.5. The film was Ilford Delta 400. I hope you like it. Gerry
  24. Hey everyone! I have been noticing a small hair in the upper right hand corner of my developed film scans. Here is a link: http://imgur.com/a/SjQK8 Was wondering if anyone could give e some suggestions as to where this could be coming from? It seems to move around slightly, and I have used a rocket air blaster on the inside of the camera + lens with no results. Using a lecia m6 ttl with a 35mm summicron f2 asph Any help would be appreciated! Thank you.
