  1. I am posting this here and in the LHSA section of the Forum. I will give a Zoom presentation for the LHSA at 7.30 pm, British Summer Time, 2.30pm EDT, on 19th August 2020 about 'Choosing and Using Old Leicas'. A link to register for the talk, which is free for LHSA - The International Leica Society – members, is here. https://lhsa.org/2020/06/free-webinar-aug-19-choosing-and-using-old-leicas-with-willian-fagan/#myaccount The talk , while mainly aimed at those with smaller collections and photographers who want to have one or two old or vintage Leica cameras to use, will also be of interest to more experienced collectors and users. ‘Old Leicas’ will include LTM and M models from 1925 up to and including the M6. I will present Leicas from different generations in groups of 3 and will indicate my own personal favourites, which should give rise to varied opinions in the discussion afterwards. I will indicate some of my favourite films. I will also give tips about using older Leica cameras, in particular about the question of loading LTM models and film trimming in advance of loading. I will describe various accessories for Leica cameras and their uses such as viewfinders, lens hoods, winders, cases, close-up equipment and filters. The response to this has been very good, with 135 members from many different countries registered as of yesterday, indicating the increasing interest in vintage Leicas and film photography generally. There are still a number of places available. We hope to have some time for questions and answers afterwards. I hope to see some forum members online as I know that quite a few here are LHSA members.

  4. Hi problem could have existed since long but I have just discovered it. Please test yours and let me know if such a problem is common. problem can be regenerated (not always) if you do the following: 1- make sure the camera is off first. Switch it on and directly go to menu. 2- scroll over items slowly downward (allow 2sec between each scroll) 3- camera will probably hang on last item i have noticed if you scroll quick the problem will not arrise. check it out here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ds1p1u7zbp37wso/IMG_2404.TRIM.MOV?dl=0 woukd appreciate your feedback. thanks
  5. Hi, Anyone know where can I buy a Wotancraft Ryker Small Brown in Europe? I have been able to find an online shop in Netherlands but they do not have stock. And, I am trying to avoid to import due to the taxes and customs. Many Thanks AR
  6. Hello I have recently bought a small fujifilm flash EF-X20 for M9 (its my first flash ever) and maybe it will be a stupid question but I have no idea how to check if its properly mounted because nothing happens when I try to fire it (x mode, m mode, p mode, ttl/manual). I press push button to take it strongly to the end in the hot shoe but cant hear the final click, maybe the contacts dont cover everything and there is no signal? it looks strange from the side as if it couldnt go further or maybe its sth else? The flash fires when I only press a test button.
  7. Ich reise viel und komme dabei mit vielen Menschen in Kontakt. Interessant dabei ist, dass ich fast ausnahmslos auf meine Leica M angesprochen werde. Entweder, weil sich einige vom Look der Kamera angesprochen fühlen, oder weil sie erkennen, dass es eine Leica ist. Bei vielen ist es sicher auch eine Mischung von beidem. Sehr schnell geht es dann um die Kamera und die Marke. Mir werden Fragen dazu gestellt und ich komme so sehr schnell in die Situation, mich gefühlt erklären zu müssen, warum ich ausgerechnet diese Kamera benutze. Das interessante ist, dass mir dies mit meiner Leica M deutlich öfter passiert als mit anderen Systemen, die ich nutze oder genutzt habe. ich habe meine Gedanken mal dazu in einem Video festgehalten. Hoffe ich bekomme jetzt hier keine Klassenkeile weil ich "Werbung" für unseren Kanal damit hier mache. 😊 Ansonsten einfach dem Admin melden mit bitte um Löschung. 😉 Mich würde mal interessieren was hier so für Beweggründe bestehen.
  8. Hey Guys, I wanted to buy a used leica since months now. But I am still unsure if I should go with the M6 or the M4? The only big difference is that the M6 has a lightmeter and the M4 not. But since I work in the film industry. I wanted to buy a separate light meter anyway at some point. So is it better to go with the cheaper M4 and get also a good lens instead of spending a lot on the M6? Looking forward to your replies Best Thomas

  13. Sometimes a photo gets a wrong capture time has anyone noticed this before? I have seen this 3 times already but cannot detect a pattern, the capture time is just a few hours wrong. (I have the latest firmware installed). Any help would be appreciated. If more people notice this we might get Leica's attention to fix this.

  15. So a couple months ago I got my first ever Leica! Its an M6 classic, 1992 build, in nearly mint condition, and I got it for a good price I've now gone through about 6 or 7 rolls in it, and its been a whole lot of fun for me. Completely different from what I'm used to, which sort of brings me to my question, sort of. I've been shooting with a Canon EOS 50D for a few years and prior to that a Nikon consumer-level DSLR. I'm young, and really got seriously into photography as a hobby long after film had been replaced as the norm. I feel like spending time with film has begun to and will teach me a lot which can better me as a photographer. For example developing your eye so that you are really looking for what is important, learning more about the process for how photographs actually happen, etc. These sort of existential qualities that you get through using and developing film. My enormous Canon and I have been through a lot together, and I've done some pretty good things with it. The extreme "practical" aspects of using a digital SLR camera make it hard for me to take my M6 seriously as a professional tool. Before you gasp and stop reading hear me out here. My Canon is not all that valuable, and certainly not uncommon. To most people it looks like any old "nice camera" and I've never felt like it would be cause for someone to come up behind me at night with a knife. I don't have to load it, it doesn't "fog" at airport security, and when I get home, my pictures are ready for sorting and processing as soon as I am. These are all matters of convenience and as a camera I don't like it as much. It is big, clunky, heavy, loud, intrusive, laggy, etc. I once said I felt like I was walking around with a brick strapped to my neck and a mask over my face whilst clapping. Manual focusing it is difficult and inaccurate. I tend to spend lots of time "chimping", and I'm always frustrated by the sheer volume of "trash" photos I come back with at the end of a trip. I guess the point I'm trying to make is this. Later in the summer I'm planning a trip, maybe to Germany, but I'm not sure yet, my friend and I haven't fully decided yet. I'm trying to convince myself to leave the Canon, lenses, CF cards, etc. at home and take the Leica and some rolls of film. Sounds great, except I can't seem to shake this voice inside my head that says: "you're not actually going to take that as your only camera are you?" "you know its just going to get stolen." "your film is not going to stand up to 2014, USA-bound airport security and even if it does you're just going to screw it up in the darkroom when you get back." "something is going to go wrong and you'll be sorry." etc. I can't tell if these are stupid concerns or not. So what better place to ask for opinions than from a bunch of people who own exactly the same/similar camera right? Do you ever have these thoughts? What is your point of view/justification? discuss
  16. Liebe Community, ich bin Jugendbuchautorin und sitze gerade an meinem dritten Buch. Eine der Figuren trägt eine Leica M4 mit sich herum, die sie im Keller gefunden hat und für ein Erinnerungsstück an ihren Vater hält. Nun habe ich, um die Fakten richtig zu kriegen, einige Fragen. Diese betreffen - das Einlegen des Films - das Geräusch, das beim Drücken des Auslösers zu hören ist - den weiteren Transport des Films - sowie das Zurückspulen Falls hier ein Leica-Profi Lust darauf hat, sich meinen Fragen zu stellen und mir weiterzuhelfen, würde ich mich sehr über eine Nachricht freuen. Beste Grüße Lena
  17. Hello all A few months back I finally fulfilled my dream and got myself the M 240. The digital Leica M body I always have wanted. So far it's been stunning experience and I love shooting with it. M 240 and SEM 21 are particularly a special combo together. What the M has brought me for the first time I truly enjoy shooting street photography. However, I have always enjoyed landscape shooting the most. I was aware of the drawbacks of M 240 when I purchased it. If you don't know what I am talking about I mean the following problems: - One minute maximum exposure = It's a disgrace to even call it bulb mode - No way to turn off LENR (Long exposure noise reduction) = practical disadvantage: try shooting fireworks when the guy next to you is going to get twice as many shots as you are - Long exposure with high ISO is even more limited = astrophotography is impossible - Inability to move the focus point on live view when zoomed in I am aware there are plenty of discussion about the aforementioned issues on these forums. As we all know anyone who is serious about landscape shooting these issues render the M almost useless. Which is in so many ways so sad. We are talking about a 6000 € camera, we have the best ultra wide lens ever (SEM 21) - and yet it can't be used to it's full potential because of these limitations. This makes me just sad. For me this is frustrating beyond all ways to describe it. To have the digital M body you always wanted, yet you are limited by such limitations. Right now I have three options: 1) Pray and hope Leica would release a firmware update to fix the issues (or perhaps a firmware hack could enable this? 2) Forget all kind of long exposure shooting with the M. 3) Get a second body for landscape shooting. Right now for me the only option would be the Sony A7r. Which I already owned once. Sad news at the time the performance with certain M wides was not acceptable. The good news now is by modifying the camera it appears we can get good performance even with SEM 21 (source: Diglloyd.com). Now I most certainly would not want to choose option number 2). So what I want to know is there a way we can reach Leica directly and get answers about these issues? Has Leica ever explained the reasoning to disable long exposures on the CMOSIS sensor? I simply can't believe an overheating would be a problem. If yes, how come no other camera manufacturer doesn't have the same problem? My guess is they want landscape shooters to invest into S-system. Or perhaps Leica's vision is perfection: hot pixels are not tolared. I say this because even the Leica T has the same technical limitation. And we all know the T has a Sony sensor which is perfectly capable for long exposures without any issues, yes again Leica has not allowed it. What ever the real reason for this is I find it ridiculous. Every DSLR I ever had (since Canon EOS 300D) has had a bulb mode. Hot pixels have never been a problem. And if they are turning LENR on removes the problem. I realize the game is probably lost by now for the M 240 and Leica is already probably working on the next generation M body. But I just want Leica to be at least aware of these drawbacks. And that the next generation Leica M body would not have such disadvantages for those who enjoy landscaping with Leica glass the most. M9 is not an option for me, because I think live view is a mandatory property for a landscape shooter. And I don't think I would be satisfied even with the 240 seconds. Any comments? Thank you for reading this... P.S. I am aware some folks seem to be bit over defensive when it comes to criticizing Leica M bodies here, but I truly believe these issues are serious drawbacks for each and everyone of us. And only together we have a chance to get answers from Leica. I certainly am hoping that a future firmware update is possible to fix some of these issues.
  18. I really love taking random street photography like this. Camera: Leica M-P (typ 240) Lens: Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH. Location: Dubai - Jumeirah Beach Residence Welcome 2016
  19. Ladies and Gents, This is my first post as a newly-minted owner of the Leica T. I'm hoping you can help me sort out a future lens purchase. I picked up the T, along with the 23mm F2.0 Summicron and the M adapter, mostly for travel. I also own a Ricoh GR with the 21mm adapter. With the GR and the T my wide-angle (35mm, 28mm, and 21mm) shooting needs are covered for now, but I'm planning to take a close look at the Leica 11-23mm F3.5-4.5 once released. I also have a Leica M3 with the 50 F2.0 Jahre Anniversary Summicron. I'm shooting less film nowadays - roughly 80/20% digital to film - so the 50mm is used primarily on the T with the adapter, which makes it a perfect portrait lens with an effective focal length of 75mm. This travel set-up gives me everything I need except for a long, fast telephoto (something around the 200mm mark). So I'm looking at two lenses: 1) the Leica 135 F3.4 APO Telyt and 2) the Zeiss 135mm F2 APO Sonnar (ZF.2) with a Novaflex adapter. I like that the Telyt is reasonably fast, can be easily affixed via the M adapter, and would make for a relatively compact package. I don't like that the Telyt costs nearly $4000K. I like that the Sonnar is very fast, has a unique signature, and costs less than $2500K with the adapter. I don't like having to stack adapters and the size/weight is a real concern, not having held this lens in person. I'd very much appreciate any and all feedback. Does anyone have experience with either of these lenses on the T or another mirrorless camera to share? Any general thoughts on the two options? Any other recommendations? Regards, Vintage Digital
  20. Checking out the used Leica lens selection at my local dealer - Service Photo in Baltimore - and one of the staff mentioned that they have a new Silver M body (M240) in stock, with no one officially waiting for it. I guess that it will be a Leica Christmas for someone - but probably not me.

  22. Here are some of the reviews I have wrote for Leica M lenses, including some exotic and unique ones such as the Zeiss 15mm ZM, Leica 75mm F1.4 Summilux, MS-Optical 50mm F1.1(Stay tuned for this one): Photography Reviews — JERRY BEI GALLERY
  23. Hallo liebe Mitforenten, bei dem herrlichen Wetter heute, wollte ich einige Langzeitbelichtungen aufnehmen. Gesagt, getan... und so war ich einige Stunden draußen, um mit meiner Leica M240, einem Summicron 35mm ASPH und zwei ND Filter Langzeitbelichtungen zu erstellen. Dabei stieß ich auch ein komisches Phänomen. Um die vollen 60 Sekunden der M240 bei ISO 200 ausreizen zu können, nutzte ich zwei ND Filter. Einen B+W 10x und einen Hoya 3x. Insgesamt konnte ich so also 13 Blendenwerte verlängern. Meine Belichtungszeiten waren damit zwischen 30 und 60 Sekunden bei Blende 5.6, bzw. 8. Nun aber zum eigentlichen Phänomen. Die M240 scheint einen 'digitalen' Schwarzschild Effekt zu besitzen, den ich so bei noch keiner anderen digitalen Kamera gesehen habe. Foto Nummer 1 zeigt mein Motiv ohne Graufilter. Die Belichtungszeit betrug bei ISO 200 1/125 Sekunde bei Blende 5.6 Foto Nummer 2 ist das selbe Motiv nur mit den zwei ND Filtern (13 Stops). Die Belichtungszeit betrug 60 Sekunden bei Blende 5.6 oder 8. Auffällig ist hier, dass es Bereiche im Foto gibt, die absolut schwarz sind. In Lightroom ist selbst im RAW der Fotos nichts mehr zu retten. Der Screenshot aus Lightroom (Anhang 3) verdeutlicht das ganz gut. Die dunklen Bereiche sind tatsächlich absolutes 'Nichts'. Das Foto Nummer 4 ist schließlich ein anderes Motiv (DHL Tower in Bonn), welches auch mit den selben ND Filtern aufgenommen wurde. Einen 'abgesoffenen' Bereich gibt es hier nicht. (Und sagt mir jetzt bitte nicht, dass die Filter bei dem letzten Motiv sinnfrei sind. Mir fiel erst nach dem Foto auf, dass sich die Wolken in nichts aufgeflöst haben. ) Das Phänomen trat so (zum Glück) auch nur bei einem Foto auf. Dennoch, oder gerade deswegen, meine Frage in die Runde: Hattet ihr schonmal ähnliche Erfahrungen? Gibt es sowas wie einen digitalen Schwarzschild-Effekt?
