  1. Another from my latest film back from the lab. This was taken on the M7 prior to getting rid of it (big mistake!) using the 35mm Summarit-M f2.5. Film is Kodak T-Max400 processed by Harman Labs who do a pretty good job. No idea of exposure (sorry) but was available light only. I particularly love the face of the little child in the background. Gerry
  2. I took this charming image candidly at my favourite café. It is not my normal practice to talk to my subjects, but if there are children involved I normally introduce myself and explain what I have done and ask for permission to use the image. I don't recall ever having been refused, although it is slightly more awkward shooting film as opposed to digital because you cannot show the parent the image. This young mother was quite happy with what I had done. Leica M7 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5 using Kodak T-Max 400 and only available light. 1/125 @ f2.8
  3. I haven't posted for a while for various personal reasons, but this came back from the lab today. Hope you like it Leica M7 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5 - Kodak TMY Gerry
  4. I saw a M7 with 0.85 finder on eBay, but not the "a-la-carte" version, it comes with its original box, manuals, papers, body cap and shoulder strap... the seller said that, it is very rare~ anyone can tell me...? is it more expensive than the 0.72 version at its original price? is it rare? also.... is the concept similarly apply for MP? ...I want to get one 0.85 for my 50mm lens... : ) here is the eBay link (just for reference): Leica M7 RARE 0 85 MP Finder rangefinder Film Camera Body LNIB 4022243105058 | eBay
  5. Hello everyone, I have a ASA light blinking for 16 seconds or so each time i press the release button. I assumed that the asa is not correctly set...but it is.... I am not sure what to do. Did you ever have this problem? Thank you very much in advance for your help. greetings. m.

    Twins and Guitars

    Another series from our recent Montana trip. I asked my brothers to go out and play there guitars. It was a bit cold but having grown up in Michigan it was not a stretch for them. I wanted to get the fading sun and get them together to play it was pretty cool. They just started playing and I started shooting.
  8. I am looking for a suitable flash unit to use with my M7. I know most Leica users don't use flash but I quite like and I like experimenting so I thought I would try it out. Im just not sure what flash unit to use, I want to use it for fill flash but I think I need to get a flash that will allow faster sync speeds. If anyone has some experience using flash on the M7 then I would much appreciate your input. Thanks.
  9. I love my M7, but I have been noticing that i consistently miss the framing on my photos because i find the 50mm frame lines to be inaccurate on the vertical plane. My photos are consistently framed higher than I think they will be when I'm looking through the viewfinder and taking the photos. (The result is that i often cut off people's feet when I intended to capture their entire bodies.) This is most common when I'm in the 8 to 25 feet range. I thought it might result from my eye not being aligned, but moving my eye around doesn't really change my view of the framing enough to suggest that it's the problem. Does anyone else have this issue with the 50mm M7 frame lines? The most accurate frame lines I use, oddly, are the 35mm lines with my 40mm Summicron on my original M8.
  10. Hi everybody, I just wanted to post the serial number of my Leica M7 which got stolen yesterday in Spain after a robbery, maybe, you'll never know, if somebody sees it being offered at Ebay or other some other online auction website... The serial number is : 2779381 The lens on it is a Voigtländer Nokton 50/1.1 Please, if someone ever sees it being offered online, contact me !!!
  11. I am new to film Leica and have problems with loading the films. It should be easy but it is not for me. I think I am doing something wrong and need some help. 1. the spool: in the MP spool there are 3 metal leaflets that turns. Do I insert the leading end of the film into it (like between 2 metal leaflets) or around it? 2. my 2nd roll did not stop after the last frame. So it just kept going forward after frame 38... then I cannot rewind. I think it is ripped off on the last winding. How can this happen? I had to open it (exposed it) and then used a forceps to remove it. 3. there is no indication that the film is properly loaded like the "turning knob" on the M7, M6 that i have read and viewed on you tube. How can you tell? 4. next is How to do longer exposure than 4 seconds on MP? can you give me a website where I can read about it?
  12. I just tried the new Retro 100 TONAL (Orthopan) film in CG-512. E.I. 50, 14:00 minutes at 24 C. M7 + Summicron 2,0/50mm The regular film speed in AM74/RHS is E.I. 80-E.I. 100. The Orthopan film goes till 625nm and in 135-36 it has been made on 100 micron clear Polyester layer. The film is very flat so easy to enlarge or scan. Due to the very fresh emulsion the Ortho sensitizer tends to have white spotts in the negative due to the Calcium salts. So the new emulsion must be developed in a developer made in destilled water.
  13. Hello all, I've just bought (through a dealer online) a second-hand M7 with a 50mm F2 lens. All I know is the ser. nr. 3328314 and that the supposed age is about 2008-2009 (?) but there's no passport or original proof of purchase with the camera. Can anyone offer advice as to what issues (if any I should look for in the camera)? I've heard that early models (how old?) can have an unreliable DX film speed sensor and that also there were issues with a defective finder design. "A lack of a proper baffle often would let the same light that comes through the fluted window to light the finder lines would also light (flare) the rangefinder spot." Does anyone know at what point in the history of the M7 this was fixed? Thank you for your help. Victoria
  14. Liebe Forumler, habe soeben bei Ebay eine neuwertige Leica M7 mit einem Summilux 1,4/ 50mm, Motor M und einer Bereitschaftstasche zu einem guten Preis ersteigert- 2950.- Habe jetzt bei der Kontaktaufnahme erfahren, dass die Bodenplatte wohl nicht vorhanden ist und keinerlei Herkunftsbelege vorhanden sind.(Erbschaft) Ich habe die Kamera noch nicht bezahlt oder abgeholt. Gibt es eine Möglichkeit, die seriennummern zu überprüfen? Was kostet eine einzelne Bodenplatte? Oder kann ich die Bodenplatte meiner M6 verwenden und gegen den Motor austauschen? Vielen Dank für eure Hilfe Emil
  15. Hallo tapfere Mitstreiter, ich würde gerne ab und zu mal etwas "anblitzen". Extra dafür einen weiteren Blitz zu kaufen lohnt sich aber für mich nicht. Der manuelle Modus mittels Blitzbelichtungsmesser ist mir dabei ausreichend. Ich habe noch ein Canon Speelite 430EX und frage mich, ob ich damit meine M7 zerstören würde. Im englischen Teil dieses Forum wurde schon mal positiv mit Fremdblitzen berichtet. Kann mir jemand weiter helfen, oder hat einen Tip? Danke und Gruß Roesel
  16. I have a 2854xxx black M7 0.85. I have read about different rangefinders being built into the batches of the later M7. I see, that my M7 does suffer from the same issues, my 0.72 M6 classic suffers (whiteout, low contrast with strong back light, … ). Although I can live with that, as I am already accustomed to it, I am very interested in which camera I have here. How can I find out?
  17. Hallo liebes Leica Forum, nachdem ich längere Zeit immer wieder die diversen Foren durchgestöbert habe und schon einige offene Fragen klären konnte, habe ich mich jetzt hier angemeldet, damit ich eine konkrete Frage an euch erfahrene Leica Fotografen stellen kann. Obwohl ich im Mode-Bereich fast ausschließlich digital mit Canon und Hasselblad arbeite, fällt mir im Kunstbereich immer wieder auf, dass ich mich zu meinen analogen Fotos deutlich mehr hingezogen fühle als zu den digitalen und für Ausstellungen nur analoge Fotos auswähle. Deshalb habe ich mich entschlossen der Leica M eine Chance zu geben. Ich hatte eine Woche lang die Gelegenheit eine M6 + 35 Summarit auszuleihen und die Ergebnisse sind WOW. Als Kamera werde ich ziemlich sicher ein Demomodel einer M7 nehmen, aber die Objektive, die Objektive.... Der Plan: Ein bis zwei Objektive zum Anfang. Möglichkeiten: 1) 50 Summilux oder 2) 35 Summicron oder 3) 35 Summarit & 50 Summarit Die Logik sagt mir 35 + 50, aber ich habe in der Fotografie immer wieder die Erfahrung gemacht, mit einem günstigeren Teil anzufangen, nur um es dann wieder auf ebay zu verkaufen, weil es eben doch nicht gereicht hat. Ich möchte die Leica eigentlich aussschließlich für Available Light Fotografie einsetzen, habe aber kein Problem einen 400 TRI-X auf 1600 zu pushen. Was sagt Eure Erfahrung??? Danke und viele Grüße Oliver

    Which One Do You Suggest?

    I have been looking around for some Leica M Rangefinders. I have narrowed it down to a few: M4-2, M4-p, m6, m7. Which one would you suggest? I am leaning more towards the M4 options but i do knot know the difference between the two, nor the others for that matter. Thanks in advanced for your help. Edit: What are your thoughts on the Voigtländer 15mm, for landscapes and such. I am also considering a summicron 50mm f/2. Any other thoughts of good lenses, not too expensive.
  19. I have a silver .72 M7 and use many lenses on it, like 35mm Summicron, 50mm Summilux, 75 and 90mm Summarits. Recently I got the latest 28mm Summicron (the digitaly coded version) and I am having problems to attach that lens to the M7. What happens is that it does not click like other lenses and the small tab which is supposed to hold the lens on the camera is not really keeping it from rotating it. That is I can take off the lens from the body without pressing the lens release button. Now the same lens clicks and holds perfectly on an M8 I also have. Anyone else experienced the same issue? thanks Miklos
  20. I have an M7 and an M8. While I love both cameras for their unique qualities and stellar performance, I have come to the realization that living with both a film-M and a digital-M can often be difficult. I'm referring to the need to constantly remove the IR filters from the lenses whenever I use the M7, and reverse the process when I need to go digital. Fortunately, I only have four lenses, but even with this small number, I find it a downright hassle to have to go through this every time I make the switch. Worse than that, is just having to remember to do it. A few times I did forget and ended up with some bad color shifts. I'd love to go all digital, but I still like to shoot film for certain subjects. Anyone else share this frustration? Got any advise on how to make living with both cameras easier?

  22. Since a few years m7 has been my "first" camera. Lenses: 12mm (CV) + 35 cron asph + 50 cron + 75 cv F2,5) . When travelling I was used to have a Nikon FM2 (with 50mm F 1,4) as back up. Reason of this choice was that with the 50mm I can focus up to 30 cm for details. Most of time leaving one camera in hotel an going out with one lens on the camera + 1 lens in the pocket depending on the daily expectations about what to shoot. Sometimes iso 100 in one camera and 400 in the other. Mostly B&W. Last winter I bought my first digital camera and I went for the x1, because of the sensor, OVF and the 35 equivalent lens (35 is the lens I use 70% of times on the m7). Last week I went for a short holiday in south germany and after a long thinking I decided to take with me the m7 (35-50-75) and the x1. Idea was to have a relaxing holiday and taking some pictures, not to make a journey in order to take "the best photo of my life". The idea was to use the m7 with an iso 100 B&W film and the x1 for some family color snaps and for the need of higher iso. Positive points (IMHO) : I appreciated many times the possibility to set the x1 at 800/1.600 iso and shoot in low light situation, which I could not have done with the m7 (100 iso in it). In difficult light situations I could chimp. But what surprised me was the fact that I almost never used the m7 because "easier" just to set to 100 iso the x1 and take pictures. Even if I had the m7 with me all the time! It seems me that having a digital camera beside the film one causes a kind of "laziness" which forces me to work with it. I do not like to go in direction of a film versus digital old annoying story, but I'm just curious if the members here who own both a film M and a digital M are using them in the same occasion. I think in future when holiday is the main point to use just the x1, if I have a serious project in mind to use again the film combo M7+FM2. Any comment about ? thanks and sorry for long post, robert PS: I am not sure if this had to be posted in the x1 forum or in film forum, it seems me here could be of more interest.
  23. "woman in window" what do you think about life? is it important to you? are you important? does it matter, that you exist, breath, think, procreate? why do you look at me like that? do you search for answers? answers from me? i ain't got no answers. i ain't got no answers. i ain't got nothing.
  24. I need some help to decide, I’ve just sold my M4-P with M6 top-plate, and now I want to upgrade but which one is best, a used M6 TTL for $1750 (Canadian dollars) or a used M7 for $1000 more? Thank in advance
  25. I just got a Zeiss Ikon ZM. My initial impression was wow! The viewfinder in it is just wonderful - after looking through it, I dont want to go back to the Leica's (it has the MP finder). It is bright and clear - rather like others have noticed for the wide angle viewfinders. However, to pick up and hold (sorry, that should probably be fondle), the Leica wins every time. But to actually look through and focus, the Zeiss is the winner.
