    Just selected by LFI for their gallery. Leica M7 with 35mm Summarit f2.5 and using Kodak Tri-X lab processed. Permission given by drag artist to photograph. Gerry
  3. Hello there! I have a slight but not to severe problem. I've noticed that my Leica M7 is not able to read the DX code of these two specific films: Fujifilm Superia X-Tra 400 and Fujifilm Fujicolor C200. For these two films I get the ISO value of 5000 and 3200 which are obviously wrong. For example, Fujifilm Pro 400H is working perfectly fine, the ISO detection works without problems. Further I tried several other films like Kodak Ektar 100, Kodak Portra 160 and 400, Ilford FP4+ 125 and so on... and the dx detection worked perfectly fine on every single one of these films. I compared the working ones with the "malfunctioning" films and the only difference I noticed is that the black paint in the dx code is a kind of green, it's not a perfect black, more like a darkish green, definitely not a true black. Could this maybe be the reason? The thing is, I've sent my camera to Leitz for a grand- overhaul just 3 weeks back. They changed and renewed a lot of parts including thr DX- reader so the camera is like brand new. Unluckily I've no clue if it had the same problem before it went to Leitz because I've not shot one of these films before. It would be a great help if somebody has an answer or maybe a similar problem! Regards Alex
  4. I haven't posted for quite some time because being a street photographer when there is virtually nobody on the streets during these crazy times is difficult. This was taken prior to the time when we knew the term COVID-19 in 2017. Leica M7 + 35mm Summarit-MM f2.5. Fuji Neopan 400CN (C-41) film commercially processed and then scanned by me. Gerry
  5. This was taken before the coronavirus problems we now all have. Leica M7 + Fuji Neopan T400CN film commercially processed and home scanned. Gerry
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. This from a film received back from the lab this week. Leica M7 with 50mm Zeiss Sonnar f1.5 and taken on Kodak Tri-X at 320iso. Lab processed and then processed using Lightroom Classic.
  10. New to my street photography gallery: June 2019Leica M7 + 35mm Summarit f2.5 lens. Kodak Tri-X.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. Hi, I had Leica M6 classic. UPS lost the package and obviously I’m going to get the insurance.Now I have to see what to buy. My Leica M6 was super, but I have to recognize that the manual exposure control and manual focusing make me slow. I lose time and distract from what I shoot. From one side M7 seems to be a very good option, from all reviews I see the owners aré happy and enjoy it. I know M7 is with electronic exposure and M6 is fully manual , but is M7 serviceable? Is M7 so bad? And because I’m not sure wether I’m going to find M6 in same mint condition like one I had, the another option is to buy brand new MP. I know MP is “mechanical perfection” and it is nice and mechanical, but it is with manual exposure. what are your recommendations?
  15. "He likes to pose" his owner said when I asked for permission to photograph, and he certainly did! Leica M7 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5/ Film was Kodak T-Max400 commercially processed and then scanned at home. The shadows were a bit of a problem but the scanner (Plustek 8200i + Silverfast) got through them well. Gerry
  16. I have shot very little this past year for various health and Covid reasons. Here is one that I was pleased with from my favourite café. It is a grab shot as I just had the camera resting on the table and didn't look through the viewfinder. Leica M7 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5. Kodak T-Max 400 at 400. No exposure values recorded. Commercially processed and scanned at home. Gerry

  20. 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
  21. 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?
  22. 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
  23. 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?
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
