  1. Hello, I recently acquired two Leica M cameras from an auction. One is a M3, the other is a M2. They both are cosmetically in pretty nice condition, but the viewfinder on each seems to have an issue. The M3 seems like it may have some separation going on and the focusing patch seems pretty dim. The frame lines for the 90mm seems permanently visible as well. The M2 has what looks like dark spot inside the viewfinder—I'm not sure that this could be. When you looks through the viewfinder it still seems bright and the patch is clearly visible. I'm wondering if anyone can help identify the issue and also let me know if you think it can be fixed. Other than the viewfinders, the cameras seems in really great shape. Hopefully a CLA can clear things up, or a recement. Thanks! Ross
  2. Hello to all I am new here and new to film cameras, kind of. Used to shoot film in high school when I didn't really pay attention to photography as a medium, just a tool to keep some memories. Then, years later fell in love in video production and bought the canon 5dmk2 (that I finally sold two weeks ago). Having that camera helped me learn very fast so I started both shooting music videos and do photography, events and anything really. Not saying that I am a pro, I just get by doing projects I really like and fitting my hobby to become my second best work skill. My "real job" is leather craft. I have a small workshop here in Zagreb, Croatia. We used to make a lot of high quality stuff for police and security agencies, but I have expanded my field to a lot of custom work (custom stuff for harley bikes, musicians and lately photographers). That way the creative juices are always flowing. Combining high quality standards, durability and cool designs gets you long way... Of all my friends I got stuck on digital cameras for the longest time. Cause they used film for fun and research, while I was more or less working with my cams. At some point I did not know where the work stops and I needed a step back, slower gear... Manual focus lenses were the first slower gear. Every time I would travel to UK my camera bag was heavier and bigger and the basic kit I really needed was so simple. That I have solved with Sony a7s. A really cool little camera for work, but still the colors are a big problem there... This summer I finally decided to get a film camera for a trip my girlfriend and I was planning. We bought an old olympus OM10. We went to Tre Cime, Italy, and hiked a lot around Dolomites. We used both the canon and olympus and were so excited to get home and develop all the rolls. When we did that and compared the pics to the digital ones I just felt like all the time I was messing around in raw converter I was actually looking for this film photo. And not just that, a lot of the colors were not even present in the digital pics... The digital ones had more detail and they seem sharper and so, but film is something else... To cut the long story short. I have decided to get a decent film camera and Leica was my first choice along with the Hasselblad 500... Hass lost due its size. A couple weeks ago I decided to sell my canon to get some more traveling money (as I am going to USA for a month, to shoot pics and do some video) and a couple days later Leica M3 from 1955. knocks at my door. What could I do So that is how I got here... Sorry for the long intro but I just drank a cup of coffee and I am getting ready to re skin my M3... Pics of that soon cheers, S
  3. Hey Guys, maybe you can help me out? I bought an old M3 in very good (optical) condition. After shooting and developing the film i saw this: Do you have an idea why I have these stripes in the pictures? It can't be seen in every picture of the film. ;( Thanks a lot!!! Peter
  4. All, I'm using a Summicron 50mm Type IV or 1997 on a Leica M3. Absolutely no problem as per this 100% crop of a scan : However, mounting the same lens on a Sony 7R, I have chromatic aberration ! Has anyone ever had this problem before ? Does anyone have explanations to this ? Thanks, Igor
  5. Summaron 2.8/35 with googles C&C welcome!!
  6. Hi, first 'photo' post here and almost the first roll of film I've run through the M3. Film is very old TX400 and lens Rigid Summicron Type II. Exposure is a little (a lot) off at times, but I'm using an old Leica Meter combined with a healthy dose of Sunny 16 as I don't trust it much. C& C of course welcome and your tips on how to use the M3 in street photos is much appreciated.
  7. Hi M3 fans, I own a M3, build in the same year I was: 1960. As I still work on understanding my self day by day, I would like to understand better than I do now how to work with this M3. What I know of photography I found out by doing and reading, all by my self. I never took any lessons. Now I am asking around if anybody can help me improve a bit the things I do with my M3, but it's very hard to find a old fashioned street photographer of journalist, who is willing to do so. Motivation: I belief when I keep on working with the M3 I will be better in charge later on when I start to work with a M9 (which I might purchase in the year I will become the age of 50). Besides: it's fun taken photo's with this magnificent camera. Who can teach me? Who knows somebody who can teach me? Or is there something to do at the Leica Academy? Regards, Bart
