  1. Der (Online-)Store-Betreiber Leica Camera Deutschland GmbH sucht Verkaufsberater für den Leica Store Stuttgart. Neueröffnung dieses Stores soll am 15. Juni sein. Weiß jemand da schon mehr … zum Beispiel wo der Store sein wird oder wer ihn leiten wird?
  2. I’m new to photography, I’m trying to decide between the M10P and the Monochrom M246. I’ve read all the forums about the pros and cons of each choice. I shoit primarily in b&w but I like at least having the option of shooting color. With the M10P, I’ve heard about “Monochrom Mode” when shooting in this mode will the images show up as a black & white preview on the LCD Screen? is it really that big of a difference/ time consuming effort to convert each and every M10P color photo to blk & white? As opposed to little PP Time with the Monochrom M246? Thanks, Robert
  3. Hi everybody, I’m a computer science engineer who has been working, as a hobby, the last three years in a new, more precise, way of recreating film look with digital cameras. I’m posting here for feedback, in case anybody of you would like to test the application (with the M9) and show the results and your opinions. I usually shoot film photography but also I like the comfort of digital. The problem is that I’ve never been happy with existing film emulations. Mainly because of that, because they are emulations instead of simulations. METHOD USED For doing so, instead of doing a generic conversion for every camera, I’ve done a specialised conversion for the Leica M9 based on simulating the chemical process and spectrum response, instead of applying curves and other stuff. In the end, I thought, if analog and digital are just two instruments which capture light, I thought, maybe is there any mathematical conversion to make the digital to look like film? I mean, if I take the same photo with analog and digital, under exact same conditions (light / aperture / exposition /…) could I make them look exactly the same? It’s based on chemical simulation and the Leica M9’s response to spectrum. Then LUTs and finally some extra calibration. I think that it could be improved because I’ve used home made or open source tools for calibrating and so on, which are far from perfect. EXAMPLES (Analog vs Converted Digital) Following are some examples of Superia 200 and TriX 400. Click in each photo to see high resolution. DNGs shoots taken with Leica M9 (left), and FILM shoots taken with Minolta CLE (right) at same conditions (aperture / exposition / ISO). All shoots taken with Zeiss Biogon T* ZM 35mm f/2. The examples show several photos, which are the following: +------------------------+------------------------+ | original DNG | | +------------------------+------------------------+ | converted DNG | scanned FILM | +------------------------+------------------------+ | developed DNG | developed FILM | +------------------------+------------------------+ For the generated simulated negative TIFF file and the scanned TIFF file I’ve applied exactly the same develop parameters. TriX 400 - 1 TriX 400 - 2 TriX 400 - 3 Superia 200 - 1 Superia 200 - 2 Superia 200 - 3 Superia 200 - 4 Superia 200 - 5 Superia 200 - 6 CONCLUSIONS Tonal range - Biggest difference between digital and film Dynamic range - Digital is faaar more detailed in the blacks, film never gets burnt, meanwhile digital gets burn quite fast. Film has more microcontrast, it's more sharpen Digital is a little bit more contrast after developing, I imagine it’s because it reach white level faster, then, when doing autolevels with the developing program, as a result, it’s a more contrast image. DOWNLOAD I'm having a console application ready, if interest is shown it will be ready quite soon! CAVEHEATS / LIMITATIONS The program only accept DNG, because I need all the light captured by the camera, instead of a JPG already converted and really dependent on camera self made adjustments. The program only accepts photos taken at the ISO of the certain film that is gonna be used. For example, for TriX400 it will accept only Leica M9 DNGs at 400 ISO. I’ve also done tests with ISO 200 and 800, and the results were quite satisfactory but, for complexity reasons, I prefer to let it be native film ISO for the moment. Highlights are not always correct, and sometimes they look weird, mainly in color film. This is due to bayer sensor pattern and its different intensity response (for Red, Green and Blue channels). FUTURE (& PAST) WORK Leica M10-D Leica M8.2 THANKS Super thanks to the creator of LibRaw, a wonderful C++ library for working with RAW files. Any questions I’m open to answer 🙂 Best regards everybody. Tomás AKA “Camalogica”
  4. I just firgure out that my Leica M10, the DNG files opened and exported to JPG by photoshop are always brighter and less contrast than the original JPG generated by M10 body.Is there something wrong? This is the jpg exported from dng. And this is original jpg by body
  5. Hi, I have had a M6 (serial number is in the 1665000 range) for about 7 years now and to be honest, haven't used it a lot in the last few years, but fired it up again recently and noticed that I think the light meter is functioning odd. In the past, I could press the shutter button when the film wasn't wound on and the light meter would activate, briefly, and then I could set the exposure. Now it doesn't do that, but when I wind film on, it will activate the light meter and not turn off until a photo is taken. I ran a roll of film through and it works fine - i.e the exposures were fine - it just seems to activate differently that it used to. Is this a common thing anyone knows about? I live in Melbourne, Australia and it's tough to get a repairer here who will look at an M6. Any advice would be REALLY helpful. Thanks in advance! Scott (Also, I added a photo of my camera just 'cause it's a nice looking thing.)
  6. Does anyone know of anywhere that would rent me a Leica M lens, looking for a 28mm for 6 days? I appreciate it’s a long shot but thought I’d ask. Have looked at the usuals (lens pimp, WEX) but no M lens’s. cheers, Dan
  7. Now that Leica has acquired Sinar, it might help many of us to have a forum on the Sinar Digital camera/LF digital backs/& lenses. It would be of interest to gather ideas and tips, on how to use old Sinar cameras and go digital. Anyone with such interests, information and experience here? Would be happy to learn whatever I can on this. Thank you.
  8. Anyone know of an aftermarket replacement eyecup or workaround for the Leica SL? Mine has had its plastic innards self-destruct and is peeling away, as you can see here. Leica Store Miami didn’t know of any solution other than sending to Leica USA for repair (yuck), and they usually take forever for anything.
  9. Hi, I know that Lightroom is supporting the Q's crop mode in DNG, meaning it will automatically crop to 35mm or 50mm aspect with the ability to recover the 28mm frame. I know that Capture One unfortunately do not support the crop modes and will just display the full 28mm. I'd like to test the feature on other RAW converter before purchasing my Q. Would anyone be kind to send me a DNG file which has been taken in 35 or 50mm mode? Thanks a lot! Romain
  10. Mit dem neuen APO-Summicron-SL 1:2/35 ASPH erweitert Leica sein Objektiv Line-Up um eine klassische Reportagebrennweite für Leica SL Systeme. Laut Leica Soll das Objektive unter anderem aufgrund innovativer Fertigungsmethoden und neu eingesetzten Technologien, die neue Referenz unter den Reportageobjektiven sein. Das Objektiv besitzt vollkommende Kompatibilität zu anderen Kameras der L-Mount Alliance. Neben der besonders starken Abbildungsleistung, welche auch schon bei voll geöffneter Blende laut Leica hervorragend sein soll, sorgt die Konstruktion sowie das Design des Objektives für kompakte Maße sowie ein geringes Gewicht. Leica betont, das bei der Entwicklung des Objektives ein besonders Augenmerk auf die Vermeidung von Streulicht sowie Reflexen gelegt wurde. Durch hochwertige Beschichtungen ist es laut Leica gelungen diese auf ein geringstmögliche Maß zu reduzieren. Das APO-Summicron-SL/35 ASPH ist auch bei widrigen Wetterbedingungen bedenkenlos einzusetzen, da es über Staub- und Spritzwasserschutz verfügt. Es wird ab April 2019 zu einer UVP von 4.400,- € im Handel erhältlich sein.
  11. Hi, I wonder if anyone in this forum is also pre-ordered the ME from B&H. If so, have you gotten the camera yet? I pre-ordered it on July 17 and it is over a month now, it still says backorder and the costumer representative said they have no idea when the manufacturer will ship to them. Wondering if Leica is already sold out of the total 750 units.
  12. Quick question re the M4p (and subsequent M bodies) how much, if at all, are they weather sealed? I.e were they designed to be weather sealed in anyway? I’m assuming not though the build quality of my M4p is fantastic so I’d imagine light spots of rain wouldn’t be too much of an issue or am I wrong with that assumption? Cheers, Dan
  13. Leica Ausstellung endet am 18.08.2019 • Bregenzer Festspiele • Showroom "Bregenz, 19.7.19. Emanuele Scorcelletti sprüht geradezu im Gespräch. Wenn er an seinem Smartphone durch die Bildergalerie scrollt, erzählt er dazu unterhaltsame Anekdoten, wie es zu dieser oder jener Aufnahme gekommen ist. Er hat viele Prominente fotografiert, beispielsweise Scarlett Johansson, Karl Lagerfeld, Audrey Tautou, Zinédine Zidane oder Quentin Tarantino. Die naheliegende und häufig zu lesende Bezeichnung „Fotograf der Superstars“ gefällt ihm dennoch nicht. Ihm gehe es darum, die „Realität menschlicher Gefühle“ in seinen Bildern einzufangen – unabhängig davon, wen er ablichtet. Wichtig ist ihm stets, den porträtierten Personen mit Respekt zu begegnen. Das spüre das Gegenüber. Kooperation mit Leica Diesen Ansatz hat er auch in Bregenz umgesetzt. Treibende Kraft hinter diesem Projekt war Karin Rehn-Kaufmann, Art Director und Chief Representative der Leica Galleries International (Österreich). Leica zählt zu den Sponsoren der Bregenzer Festspiele. Kaufmann-Rehn hatte zuvor bereits Ausstellungen mit Scorcelletti in Salzburg und Baden bei Wien konzipiert. Seine Bilder aus einer Zirkuswelt hatten sie an Rigoletto mit dem aktuellen Bühnenbild denken lassen. In Absprache mit Kuratorin Miriam Marzura, Leiterin der Leica Galerie in Wien, kam die Idee auf, in Bregenz die „Zirkusartisten“, also die Akrobaten, in Szene zu setzen. Scorcelletti war sofort begeistert und sagte zu. Sechs Tage lang war er Ende Juni / Anfang Juli mit seiner Kamera rund um die Seebühne unterwegs. Zusätzlich ist von diesem Shooting ein Making-of-Video entstanden. Internationale Vita Emanuele Scorcelletti hat italienische Eltern und wurde in Luxemburg geboren. Heute lebt er in Paris. Begonnen hatte seine Karriere als Fotograf bei einer Presseagentur. Den internationalen Durchbruch brachte ihm ein Bild von Sharon Stone aus dem Jahr 2002. Es zeigte die Schauspielerin auf dem roten Teppich der Filmfestspiele von Cannes und brachte ihm eine Auszeichnung beim World Press Photo Award in der Kategorie „Kunst und Kultur“. Die Ausstellung von Emanuele Scorcelletti ist kostenlos vom 17. Juli bis 18. August im Foyer des Festspielhauses (Nähe Haupteingang) zu sehen. https://kulturfreak.de/neuigkeiten-von-den-bregenzer-festspielen-19-juli

  15. I recently found a super deal on a Visoflex 020 being sold by Adorama through auction listed as having major defects; the details described as "** Item Notes: Viewfinder does not switch back to LCD screen properly; Likely proximity sensor issue; May have other issues; Cosmetic condition is E ** However, the price was too good to pass up, less than half price of a brand new one. So I took a chance and bought it. When I received and tried it out, to my surprise, it worked, but there were green lines across the display. The lines went away when I angled the viewfinder to the max 90 degrees angle, but only temporarily. Issue returned when I adjusted the angle of the viewfinder again. I spent the latter half of a Friday evening/night before I pinned the problem down to the LCD connection to the main board. I started disassembling the base module where the unit connects to the camera at the hot shoe. There are four screws at the bottom, then the top of that module can be lifted up and out. There is a swinging door with the tiniest spring that attaches to that top piece, very easy to lose. The door can fall off easily. The hot shoe connection can then be disconnected from the metal hinge assembly by removing two silver screws and pushing back the two plastic tabs securing the connector to the hinge plate. To disassemble the main eyepiece module, the rubber eye "hood" or protector had to be removed; it is held in by double-sided adhesive at the top and bottom inside. Behind that, there are two screws left and right flanking the eyepiece that hold the upper and lower housing together. After I removed those, I spent a lot of time working the housing, trying to figure out if there were any other screws, or if adhesive or tabs were holding them together. Turns out, I took a chance and found out there is a tab on each of the three sides. The bottom comes off, and the main assembly is attached to the top housing. The ribbon flex cable connecting the base module to the eyepiece main module had no signs of damage; connection was fine, and removing/reattaching it did not resolve the green-lines issue. There were no breaks on the flex. However, pushing the flex beneath made the green lines disappear temporarily. So I removed the mainboard from the top housing assembly, and found a misaligned connection between eyepiece LCD and the mainboard: see, the connection is crooked It may have dislodged from the connector after a drop, or perhaps maybe it was never properly installed at the factory. Or maybe the continued adjusting/angling of the viewfinder furthered the loose connection? In any case, removing and reinstalling the connection made the green lines disappear and have not reappeared ever since I reassembled everything together. I tested the eyepiece multiple times on my TL before reassembling everything back together. Gotta say, I'm very happy with the viewfinder. Though it seems to pale in comparison to the viewfinder in my recently acquired CL, it is still a very welcome addition. And very fun to use. I'm not a serious photographer, but I'm slowly working my way into a new hobby.. Some background; I have repaired other people's smartphones in the not too distant past, and I collect and repair vintage Macintosh computers. After my experience with the TL, Leica cameras are working their way into becoming a new part of my collection.

  18. Since Sinar Camera has merged with Leica, would anyone here know if there is a chance we will have a Sinar forum here soon?
  19. I am purchasing my first Leica! The M10-p. I was wondering which lens should I go with (current version brand new), the 35mm Summilux or 35mm Summicron. I do not consider the $ what so ever. Why go with one over the other? Is the Summilux strictly better but a matter of $$? Mostly street & reportage-style photography

  23. We've all heard of that college student who bought an M2 for 5$ in a thift shop. I've never got such a deal but I've managed to get Leica equipment for low prices in the past. Such as a very clean M2 that I got in an eBay auction for 600$CAD. The shutter speed had to be adjusted, and the vulcanite had to be replaced. Other than that, it is in excellent condition. I later got an M262, which I also bought on eBay, for about 3500$CAD. The sensor was filled with dust and oil spots, and the focusing mechanism had to be lubricated two days after I recieved it. (Those problems where not specified by the seller) It looked like new back then, but after about six months of use, I've got some paint removed on the corners and a cut in the faux leather. It has been faithfull ever since. Then, yesterday, I looked for a replacement for my 35mm ZM 2.8 on the internet and ended up looking for pre-ASPH summicrons. I then stumbled uppon a 35mm Summicron on keh.com for 1080$USD. No picture of the actual lens was shown and generic pictures of a Type 4 where shown instead. It was listed as "UG" (ugly). Giving this extremely low price and the 180 day warranty offered by keh, I jumped on it. (I'll keep you guys updated on this purchase.) What are the good deals you guys managed to get on Leica equipment?
