So.... i only got the Leica M 240 a week ago and after i took it to a trip to Korea, I find this line going across the images. So I thought it was memory card. Swapped it for a new one. Same problem. Now I thought it was the actual LCD monitor that was the problem. Nope. When I was in LiveView, the line isn't there. Weird. So now it's getting shipped to Solms (teardrop) and have to wait for 6-8 weeks. The reason why I am posting this is because I couldn't find other Leica M owners who had this problem (yes, with other models but not for the new M). Please share your pain with me here if you have the same problem as me. http://i1348.photobucket.com/albums/p729/christianpsu/1_zpsbfb2500d.jpg
Passing through Singapore in December for a month in S. E. Asia I had a sudden attack of G.A.S. I had with me just an M8 with the old 24mm Elmarit-m asph (and a 35mm summilux asph and the 75mm summicron), and I found that both the Leica shop and Cathay Camera in Singapore had the 24mm summilux in stock!! I was very tempted, particularly as the recent price rise was just around the corner. Happily I managed to resist. But it came very close to being an expensive shopping trip. I used the elmarit-m a lot on the trip, and didn't miss the extra two stops. After taking around 500 undistinguished pictures with it, I'm glad I didn't splash out on the summilux. There will be future opportunities, of course. After the trip, I've found that the M8, which I have not used very much since I bought it three years ago has developed a white stripe around 1-2mm thick down the RHS of its LCD screen. It's no real problem, and I think I'll just live with it. This is the third minor problem the camera has had: when new its clock did not work; later it developed the coffee ring on the LCD; now the white stripe. I had the first two repaired under warranty, but I think I'll not bother with this issue until something makes a repair unavoidable. All the best, John
I just noticed my M8 developed this problem a couple of days ago, whilst reviewing images on the screen. More obvious on bright scenes. The camera's been used sparingly over the last 2 months or so and have been in a camera bag most of the time, in cool conditions. Yesterday, I sent it back to my Leica dealer and the immediately took it in to be sent back to Leica UK. I guess this is due to poor supplier of the glass or installation and is a known fault? Have never come across this problem having owned so many digital cameras over the years.
Dear All, Begin new to everything Leica (and Lightroom) I am posting my first thread. I recently bought a M9. For now I have two questions (and many more lurking in the back of my mind): - When working in Lightroom 2.6, in the navigator there are several standard settings to zoom in on a picture (1:1, 1:4, 1:3, 1:2, 2:1, 3:1, 4:1, 8:1 and 11:1). Can someone explain to me which zoom equals a 100% crop? - The other thing is that I noticed that when I zoom in I can clearly see the individual pixels from 2:1 onwards (working in Lightroom 2.6 on a DNG compressed picture). However, when I take a look at the same picture on the LCD screen of my camera I can zoom in much further, in fact right up to maximum, and still not be able to see the individual pixels. Why is that? Thanks, Martin
