  1. Hi everyone, I have Summicron M 50mm version V and I use it with my M6 classic. Summicron M 50mm seems to be a tricky lens.From one side it performs well giving very nice result, but in some areas when the weather is cloudy I got images which lack of contrast which I dislike. I have Contax G2 with Zeiss 45mm and Nikon FM3a with Zeiss 50mm and both gives more contrasty images. what is your opinion if you use this lens with film camera? Any advices?
  2. Another from the last film I processed. Taken just standing and shooting on the street, so a 'grab' shot. This is a crop from the full frame. I must confess that I quite like the look of the film even though it is clearly not the 'original' Agfa product and is a bit grainy so has to be worked on Maybe a change in developer would calm it down. Leica M6 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5. Agfa APX400 processed in Adox FX39ii. Gerry
  3. Another from my favourite cafe. This is a candid shot taken handheld at 1/30th @ f2.5 by available light. Leica M6 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5. Agfa APX400 film processed in Adox FX39. Gerry
  4. This is from a roll of Agfapan APX400 which I processed yesterday in Adox FX39. Leica M6 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5 Gerry
  5. I have struggled with his image for a long time (I actually took it in 1997) mainly because I shot it on Agfa Vista 800 colour films nd the train after scanning was horrendous. I have now had another go using Dfine 2 to try and calm the grain down, and have produced this which I am reasonably pleased with. Taken with a Leica M6 using available light only in the Louvre in Paris. Sorry, no other details are available. Gerry
  6. Taken candid handheld using available light only from roughly waist level. Leica M6 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5. Ilford HP5+ developed in Adox FX39 II. Gerry

    Dry Berth

    Taken as part of my return to film photography on the first roll put through my new (to me) Leica M6, which I am loving. 35mm Summarit-M f2.5 lems. Ilford HP5+ (expired) rated at 400 iso and processed in Adox FX-39 II developer 1:9. Scanned into Lightroom Classic. Gerry
  8. Normally I shoot candidly, but because I wanted to get in tight and had the 35mm lens on, this time I asked for permission - no problem. image was cropped to about 50%. Leica M6 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5. Ilford HP5+. 1/125 @ f11. Adox FX-39 II dev. Gerry
  9. I have tried to capture as many details as possible of the new Leica M6 re-issue. Please feel free to add your observations and images.
  10. Hi everyone, I have Leica M6 classic an I use it for a year. Few days ago I inserted Kodak gold. On some of the shot (11th) I noticed that the film rewinding knob on the left almost doesn’t rotate when push the lever.As I remember when push the lever for next frame the knob on the left should rotate.I taught that the film was not properly loaded and opened the camera. I was very disappointed to know that it was rewinding good and I just have light the film I have reviewed many tutorials in the internet and all of them show that when is properly loaded the film, on first shots the knob on the left rotates a half a turn. so, I decided to insert new film and I noticed that the first shots it rotate half a turn, but next rotates, but some of them less, some more. My question is how to be sure that the film is 100% loaded properly and goes OK? I read that if the film doesn’t go the reloading lever doesn’t return, is that true? Any tips for checking to be sure?
  11. 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._/
  12. 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.
  13. Hello to all, I would like to request your help/advice. I currently own and use a Nikon F3, but feel the need for something new to help with street/travel photography. After doing a fair bit of research I have come up with buying either the M5 or the M6ttl. I can't actually go to a store and handle these cameras and I will be buying online, I am drawn to the M5 but the worry is I am buying something bigger than my F3 when I am looking for something less intimidating when on the street? however the shutter dial and viewfinder look like great additions. With the M5 it seems the Shutter speed in the viewfinder would also be useful and perhaps better than the LED's in the M6? Could anybody who owns an M5 post some size comparison photos to give me some idea of what it looks like next to the F3? How Do you find the M6 TTL, LED system? I will be predominantly using a 35mm and 50mm lens to start with. Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated, Thanks !
  14. Hi, I'm new here and I created my account because I desperately need help with this and would be grateful for any help I've been using my M6 for some time now and everything has been functioning perfectly However, when I bought some new batteries for it, the light meter would stop working, while if I put the old batteries back in, everything would work again. The batteries I have tested include, LR44 alkaline battery from energizer, and a CR-1/3N lithium battery. If anyone has any idea what the problem could be, and if there are any possible fixes, it would be greatly appreciated.
  15. From my 'Paris' portfolio. Taken on an M6 using Kodak T400CN film commercially processed. I am sorry but all lens details have been lost, but probably a 50mm Summicron f2. Gerry
  16. I have used Leica m240 for a while, and recently have bought Leica M6 as recommended by my friend, the last time I shot a film was almost 20 years ago (it was a school event, where we had to learn how to shoot film); but since then, my photography experience is pretty much always digital. I travelled to Copenhagen last weekend, and decided to give myself a bit of challenge, so I only took my Leica M6 with couple rolls of Fuji C200; the metering and focusing are pretty much identical between M240 and M6; so it was not that hard for me to use the camera, having said that, without the ability to view the image straight-away did take me out of the comfort zone as I had no idea how the image would look like. Followings are some of the images i would like to share, those are small default scans from the film developers, so the resolution is pretty low, i'm currently exploring options of scanning those negatives using my other digital cameras. Anyway, any C&C is welcomed.
  17. Has Leica ever officially confirmed that M6 TTL light meter is not repairable by them? I've read mixed information in this forum and elsewhere where "some" owners have sent the camera for light meter repair and some have had it repaired and others have received a response from Leica that they can't fix it. What specifically is so unique about the M6 TTL light meter vs the M6 classic light meter that makes it so complex for repair. Obviously I'm interested in purchasing an M6 TTL in great condition - found one specifically with a 0.58x viewfinder which is very important to me since I wear glasses and shoot primarily 28mm and 35mm. I enjoy the in-camera light meter and hoping that in a few years down the line ...the M6 TTL does not turn into M4-P if the light meter malfunctions for any reason. Thanks in advance for the feedback.
  18. 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

    Taking a moment

    This is from my archive of images taken on a trip to Marrakesh, Morocco. Leica M6 + 50mm Summicron f2. Home-processed Ilford HP5+. Post processing in Lightroom Classic. Gerry
  20. Hallo zusammen, mein SF20 Blitz löst auf meiner M6 leider nicht nur beim auslösen aus sondern feuert auch beim spannen. Ist das ein Defekt? Kennt jemand die Lösung? Ganz herzlichen Dank für eure Hilfe Nicolas
  21. I am just working through some transparency work and scanning it on to the computer. I was particularly pleased with this one which was taken in 1999 on Kodachrome 64 using a Leica M6. Scanning was with a Plustek 8200i, and post was with LT Classic. I think it is amazing how the work we have just put away into a filing cabinet etc. has stood the test of time, and before there is "ah, well it is Kodachrome" some Fuji Provia RDP is just as good. Gerry
  22. 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
  23. Because of the covid-19 lockdown I am unable to go out on to the streets to photograph, not that there are any people around. I am therefore still working through my archives, and came across this image from Paris in 2002. Taken with a Leica M6, 50mm Summicron f2 and using Kodak T400CN film (which I used to love!). I hope you like it. I have also been revamping my web site using Adobe Portfolio, which is part of the Lightroom/Photoshop package, and like the results so far, although it is a work in progress. Take a look here Gerry
