  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. Just came from Latvia on assignment and got me a little souvenir... noticing how similar their Laima chocolate company logo is to Leica's. What do you think? Does any other company have a similar logo?
  5. 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?
  6. Here are some photos of Pasvik (near Norilsk), I took in my Leica Q2. What a wonderful camera! I am really satisfied with it
  7. Guten Tag, Neueinsteiger in das M-System und generell bei Leica. Habe ein paar grundlegende Fragen und hoffe das mir ein paar alte Hasen diese beantworten können. 1. Ist es normal das die Mechanik bei unterschiedlichen Zeiten sehr unterschiedliche Geräusche macht? - ( von 1/1000 bis 1/60 ein klicken ) -( bei 1/30 und 1/15 ein klicken sowie ein schwingendes Geräusch also ob etwas träges sich austariert ) -( von 1/ 8 bis 1s ein klick mit ablaufen der Zahnräder ein weiteres Klicken der Verschluss schießt und einer etwas langsameren Zahnradmechanik im Anschluss ) Das diese Kamera Vollkommen Mechanisch ist und die Zeiten somit einen Mechanismus brauchen ist mir Bewusst. Es wundert mich bloß das die Geräusche so unterschiedlich ausfallen. Das erste surren der Zahnräder kann ich mir erklären das zweite jedoch nicht sowie mich auch das schwingende Geräusch etwas irritiert. Gibt es dazu vielleicht eine Animation ? 2. Ist es wirklich so einfach ein Loch in das Verschlschlußtuch zu brennen? Ich verwende momentan ein Leica SUMMILUX-M 1:1.4/50 mm ASPH. In den Monaten Februar und März, welche zu teilen doch sehr verregnet waren und auch die Sonne noch nicht ganz so hoch stand , ist mir aufgefallen das sich ein weißer Fleck auf dem Tuch befindet. Ich dachte erst es sei ein Wassertropfen und habe einfach weiter Fotografiert. Ein paar Filme später wollte ich in trauter Zweisamkeit etwas entspannen und es fiel mir wie Schuppen von den Augen da ist ein Loch. Zunächst einmal Vorsichtig abgestellt, Objektiv abgenommen und verstaut, Bodenplatte entfernt, Rückklappe aufgeschlagen, ein Licht unter die Kamera gelegt. Es schien Licht durch ich hatte ein Loch. Muss man immer den Schutzdeckel auf der Frontlinse haben? 3. Ist die Beschichtung so fragil, verursacht die womöglich austretende Gerbsäure ein schnelleres abtragen der Beschichtung oder ist es der druck den das Leder auf die Beschichtung ausübt ? Die schwarzverchromte Version dieser Kamera ist nun 3 Monate alt und ich habe in etwa 20 Filme Belichtet. Dazu trage ich sie mithilfe eines Lederriemens von Oberwerth ELTZ, welcher einen Ring verwendet der jedoch durch ein passendes Lederstuck vom Gehäuse ferngehalten wird. Gibt es Produkte bei denen das nicht passiert ? 4.Ist diese Kamera wirklich so fragil gegenüber von Umwelteinflüssen, muss man sich jetzt bei einem Nieselregen Gedanken machen und auch den Staub in der Luft auf die Liste meine Erzfeinde schreiben ? 5.Gibt es Pflegehinweise so wie Verhaltensregeln die zu beachten sind , eben so für das Objektiv ? 5.Von was für einem Wartungszeitraum kann man ausgehen, wird sich auch das Fokussierungssystem innerhalb von Monaten Verabschieden, welcher weitere Verschleiß ist zu berücksichtigen? Über Erfahrungsberichte sowie Vorschlage würde ich mich sehr freuen und bedanke mich Schon einmal im Voraus.
  8. Have searched for a while for the ultimate pouch (neoprene, not leather) for my Leica M lenses. Finally found one for the "average" Leica/Zeiss/Hexanon lens. This bag can also be hooked to the belt via the sewn loop, having enough room for a finger to reach for the lens. I cut off the adjacent carabiner as it was useless. Now I can stack two lenses on top of each other (I have 4) in my ONA bag. I am not naming any brands, I am not associated with anyone, just informing anyone that was after such product that this company is in Munich, Germany and on amazon.de. They have even smaller (XXS) bags but they are too tiny for Leica lenses. The proper size they offer for the pouch IMHO was XS (7cm x 8cm). The bags are not the icons of design, nor very beautiful, but they do get the job done. PLEASE SHARE YOUR LEICA LENS POUCH EXPERIENCE(S).

  10. Hallo in die Runde Ich habe mal eine Frage. Ist bei jemanden schon mal das Glas im Bajonett was zur Objektivabtastung gehört, kaputt gegangen? Bei meiner zeigte sich erst ein kleiner Art schwarzer Streifen. Die Kamera erkannte aber noch die Objektive korrekt. Dann bemerkte ich, dass Sie immer mal wieder ein und das selbe Objektiv mit unterschiedlichen Exif angaben abspeicherte. Darauf habe ich gesehen, dass es anscheinend an einer Ecke sich das Glas vom Bajonett gelöst hatte. Daraufhin habe ich die Kamera über meinen Händler zu Leica eingeschickt, weil ich noch Garantie hatte. Jetzt kam von Leica die Rückmeldung, das es sich nicht um einen Garantieschaden handelt und es repariert werden muss. Jetzt ist natürlich mein Problem. Ist das Bajonett an der Stelle so empfindlich, ich weiß beim besten willen nicht, wie ich hätte den Schaden erzeugen soll. Leider. Das trübt extrem die Nutzbarkeit für mich, da traut man sich ja nicht mehr das Objektiv zu wechseln. Ich habe keine Adapter, nur M Linsen von Leica und Voigtländer benutzt. Kennt jemand das Problem. laut Aussage von Leica wäre es im Promillebereich im Customer Care aufgetreten. Ich wundere mich nur, dass die Kamera so empfindlich sein soll. Schade eigentlich.

  14. 카메라 m10을 보면서 뭔가를 찾았습니다. 빨간색 표시에 반짝이는 접착제가 있습니다. 다른 카메라는 이런가요? Looking at camera m10, I found something. There is a shiny adhesive on the red mark. Are other cameras like this?
  15. Hey everyone, I just got my m2 off ebay and had a look through the viewfinder only to see 2 main very noticeable spots. I attached a picture and the one on the lower left looks much dimmer and looks like a dot and a hair almost? It's kind of light greyish and I think it's a particle or dust but I'm not quite sure. However, in the middle the speck seems much darker (basically black) and more prominent. Could this be separation or is it another speckle of dust (imo it doesn't seem like one). If this has happened to you or you know what it is, any input on how to fix or your thoughts would would be greatly appreciated! Also the shutter curtain on the front seems a little pushed forward and I can see the whole seam on it, is that normal? The curtain works 100% fine but I'm not sure if Im supposed to see the whole seam and overlap of the two curtains. On the back it stays slightly open by 1mm or so (didn't include a pic sorry)... should it cause a light leak? The camera was also recently CLA'd. Lastly, the viewfinder has some "gold specks" which I think is separation, but I hope i'm wrong. Please help if you can clarify, recommend a fix, or give any thoughts on ^^. Overall the camera seems amazing and none of the things I mentioned has really bothered me, but if I can learn more about them then it would be great. Thanks in advance, Ashley
  16. 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”
  17. Please share your opinion - if you have used or owned both lenses or any opinion on the topic. Mostly interested in comparison of render, sharpness, bokeh, pop etc. according to you - digital sensor or film. Early reports indicated the Hexanons were inferior. According to LHSA "some Hexanon early samples were reported to have focusing discrepancies, long since resolved, and that adversely affected initial sales. The current consensus: Konica KM and Leica M lenses, even those with longer focal lengths and wider apertures, can be used interchangeably on both cameras without problems." Lots of posts ot the tiny flange difference between the cameras, but here we discuss the lens. Mr. Rockwell even went as far as comparing the build of Summicron 50 (V) to the Hexanon-M 50 side by side and they indeed look almost identical. Check the pic on his webpage under the Hexanon topic. I have recently acquired a Hexanon-M 50/2 (photographed below on my M) and it is a stellar performer, slightly better wide open (especially corners) compared to Summicron M 50/2 (IV) in all the tests I did. YMMV.

  19. Hallo, in 2020 steht der Kauf eines nativen L-Mount Standardzooms auf der Wunschliste. Mich würde interessieren, wie die Meinung des Forums zur folgenden Frage ist: Durchgängige Lichtstärke 2,8 (z.b. Sigma beim neuen 24-70er), Stabilisiator (z.b. beim Lumix 1:4/24-105) oder beides beim Vario-Elmarit 24-90 Body ist eine SL 601(also ohne IBIS), und mir ist klar, daß wir hier Äpfel mit Birnen hinsichtlich Preis vergleichen. Motive meist Reise und Menschen oder Kombination...:-9 VG Arndt
  20. Hello everybody, this is my first post and I would like to extend a friendly hello to all of you and also to thank you for your time! This thread is not about finding the right screws for adjusting the rangefinder, but rather about one of them not wanting to move. The infinity adjustment (horizontal plane) seems to be a tiny bit out of alignment with my M5, and although it probably will not have a significant effect, it still nags me. One factor might be that the brass barrel of the lens I commonly use appears to be quite worn, so that when "freshly" attaching the lens, everything seems to be in order but never goes back to true inifity after the lens is focused to a closer distance and back to infinity, if this makes sense. Anyway, the screw inside the roller at the end of the rangefinder arm inside the lens mount does not move. I have tried several straight and angled screwdrivers, even filed one down for better fit, but still: it won't budge. I am afraid of stripping the head of the screw/damaging the arm and wonder: can or should the eccentric screw at the end of the rangefinder arm be lubricated in any way? Or will this result in unwanted movement/reoccuring maladjustment of the screw? When looking straight at the rangefinder arm from the front, there seems to be a small opening in the arm through which I can see the screw, which is why I'm wondering if it's meant to be used for lubrication purposes. What confuses me most though, is that my camera technician has adjusted the rangefinder several times already, and will most probably also have used this screw (although there seem to be other ways after taking the top plate off). Maybe I should ask him if he applied any kind of bonding agent to keep it in place. Although I'd wonder where he should have put it, since it inevitably would come into contact with the roller, inhibiting it from moving freely. If all of this is too confusing, I can add some pictures later for clarification. Thank all of you for your time and have a nice day!
