  1. I think this is an impossible question to ask, without someone seeing it in person, but back in the 1960's and 70's I accumulated a small collection of Leica gear, most of which went into storage when I got into digital. Then Leica came out with the M8 and M8.2, so I bought one as soon as I could afford it. When I read about the problem the camera had with infrared, for me that was a bonus - I wanted to take infrared photos, and now I had a chance. I did this back in 2009 and 2010, and then I mostly moved on to other things. I've now got a M10, and all my other gear is put away in drawers,
  2. Does anyone know when the infrared marks on Leitz/Leica lenses were not used anymore? I am checking my own lenses: Hektor 13,5 cm (1956): yes; Elmar 135 mm (1962): no Elmar 9 cm (1937): yes; Elmar 9 cm (1952): yes; Elmar 9 cm collapsible (1954): yes; Elmar 90mm (1962, new version or II): no Summicron 50mm II (1960): no; Summicron 50mm III (1968): no Summitar 50mm (1948): yes Summar 5 cm (1937): yes Elmar 5 cm (1939): yes None of my 3,5cm/35mm lenses has the R-mark Best, Lex
  3. Hello all, Just want to introduce myself - I am doing photography since 1985. As the headline states, I grew up in Germany but live for professional reasons not related to photography since 2005 permanently in the US. I just recently acquired my first Leica camera - the Leica M6 since I always wanted to have a fully mechanic reliable camera including a light meter. I want to do B&W film photography with this camera since I still develop my own film and use my darkroom to make silver gelatin prints both from digital files (using homemade digital negatives) and from film negatives. My s
  4. This sunny and cool october day was dedicated to discover autumnal impression in my city of Bielefeld. We have many parks and one of them belongs to our art museum (architect Philipp Johnson). This park has a pond, old trees and scultptures. Olympues EM 5 with Summilux 15 mm and infrared filter
  5. My first successful attempt at taking an infra-red shot, inspired by a recent talk on this subject at Croxley Camera Club. The Leica M8 with it's extremely thin IR filter, combined with a Hoya R72 filter on the front of the lens, appears to give great results! I shot the image at ISO160 using the "hidden" RAW mode in the camera and then converted to DNG using Arvid's M8RAW2DNG utility. This gave me a low-noise DNG that I could use to boost the image and counteract the loss of light caused by using the R72 infrared filter. Think I pushed the exposure +3EV in Adobe Camera Raw? Other than tha
  6. I wanted to see how well (or poorly) my TL2 could be coaxed into producing infrared or near-infrared photographs. So I started this informational topic to pass along some of what I found out. I used infrared film only very occasionally during my predominantly film days, but there were times when it was just the ticket. One of my favorite B&W films was and still is Ilford's near-infrared SFX-200 processed in PMK Pyro, both for normal and occasionally for near-infrared photos (but that's another story). It turns out that the TL2's sensor collects an impressive amount of infrared
  7. I've started experimenting with Infrared film, unfortunately I am a little confused leading to the first film I developed being overexposed. I am using Rollei infrared 400iso when I looked it up it advised to set the iso at 25. I can't use the light meter due to using a filter on the lens. So did the same with my digital but the lowest iso was 100, so I thought I had to increase the shutter speed but I think I should have decreased it. How do I figure this out? For example if on my digital (again using infrared filter) the iso is 100 and shutter speed is 30secs, then how long would the s

  9. Hello user, by majority request, I open here an infrared photo thread. Who wants to join the "club" finds instructions, hints and examples for infrared-photography between pages 274 and 277 of the "normal "image thread" https://www.l-camera-forum.com/topic/269530-leica-q-the-image-thread/page-274
  10. Hello Everyone I have an M8 and M9. I use the M8 mainly for infrared and as a backup when travelling. I want to buy the M 240 for all sorts of reasons ..... but money is a little tight and I would benefit from trading in either the M8 or M9 ( or both ). I have found the M9 to be very poor as an IR camera, but the M8 is superb. I think I want to end up with the M 240 and the M9 - but I don't want to give up shooting infrared photos. Can anyone please tell me how the M 240 performs as an IR camera. If I could get really good IR from the M 240, I could let the M8 go more easil
  11. Hi there, new to the forums here, please forgive me if this is posted in the wrong section. I have been looking for a good 28mm (near 35mm equiv.) lens for both IR photography and B&W once I sell my full spectrum modified Olympus. After researching a while I have come down to these three options; Ultron 28/1.9 = Good low contrast B&W, IR?? Biogon 28/2.8 = Not so good B&W (higher contrast) but good IR Summaron 35/3.5 (Not 28mm I know) = Good B&W and apparently good for IR (due to coatings) The Ultron seems ideal for my needs e
  12. Hallo zusammen, nachdem ich nun schon einige Zeit damit verbracht habe, überall im Netz zu suchen und nicht fündig geworden bin, wende ich mich nun an euch: Ich besitze eine M240 und würde gerne mit Infrarotfotografie experimentieren. Es gibt aber allerhand Infos dazu im Netz und eben auch gegenteilige Meinungen. Daher meine Frage an die Fachleute: gibt es hier jemanden, der Erfahrung mit der M8 (natürlich noch interessanter für mich der M240) hat und berichten könnte ? Belichtungszeiten etc? Die Frage wäre nämlich dann, wenn die M8 so exorbitant besser sein sollte als die M240 mir einen gebr
  13. Hey there, after searching for quite some time now, I decided to write this post. I own a M 240 and would like to experiment with infrared. But there are so many and opposite informations in the web and Leica is not helpful at all about this topic. So: does anybody has experiences with the M8 (M8 should have a less strong IR filter that the M240-also interested in experiences of M240) and infrared photography ? Can anybody explain his/her experiences in exposure time etc? It would really be a good help for me. Thanks in advance, Nick
  14. these are my first attempts with infrarerd photography. I bought 2 filters, so that can cover the range of my lenses. For my MKII I discovered that only Novoflex adapter is lightproof, so exercises with this camera will follow later on when we get another series of nice lighting. It seems that subjects can be found anywhere if light is contrasty enough. A different world of light and subject is waiting to be discovered and inviting for light adventures. Have a look.

  15. Anyone tried infrared photography using D-lux 4? I just got myself a Lensmate adaptor and a 46mm Hoya IR filter R72, but for some unfathomable reason, the photos turn out all pink, like this: They look nothing like what the infrared pictures I've seen on say, Flickr: Infrared Help! Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Might it be the camera settings or...?
  16. Dear Forum, just new – since some months - in this circle, I feel like at home, because there are so many experienced and friendly people in this forum. Therefore, I hope, anyone can perhaps help me to find a suitable actual Leica M lens for infrared imaging with a Leica M8 ! Principally, IR with the M8 works well with some restriction, perhaps mostly coming from the lenses. I see only few problems with the Leica Apo 2/75, which I bought a short time ago. IR-imaging was quite good with very old screwlenses Elmar 3,5/35 and 3,5/50. I tested a Voigtländer Nokton 1,2/35 mm asph.
  17. I experimented with IR photography using my Elmarit 28/2.8 on the M8. I realized that this lens appears to cause a significant hot spot under IR conditions, especially with apertures 8 and up. Can you please share your experience with other lenses on the M8 when using for IR photography? Thanks! Ralph
  18. I know the FAQ recommends taking off the IR filter when using a 35mm or wider lens, but does anyone have any real world experience yet with this? I would find it annoying to have to remove the filters as I switch from M8 to M9 during the day. How much of an issue is this? Thanks.
  19. OK, so I was shipped a 39mm Leitz IR filter (deep red, almost black) by mistake for a Leica UV/IR filter - and decided to keep it. Playing around, the first thing I noticed is that while the M8 replicates B&W infrared film quite nicely, color IR shots are nothing like color Ektachrome Infrared. They are either red all over, or, with a strong bias of the white balance towards the left (yellow, + green tint), a weak approximation of EIR shot without a filter - pastel purples, magentas and reds. Where were all the rich greens and cyans and flaming red foliage I remembered from shootin
