  1. Hello- I just got my M4-2 back from a repair service for this light leak/shutter issue - a band across the top. I got my first roll back, and 95% of the frames didn't have it - but the last few frames did. None of the frames with my 35mm Summicron had it, only the last few with a 50mm Canon 1.4 LTM with an adapter. Is there any chance this is a lens/adapter issue, or is the shutter still the culprit? Band happend when shot into the direct sun at 1000th, sun behind be at 100th; and also in muted indoor light around 250th. Cheers
  2. Dear Friends: In the late 80's (when I was a kid) my father taught me how to use the Leica R4. I use the M-system these days but for last few weeks I have been wanting to make a comeback to film photography. I recently bought a used R4 with Summicron-R 50 mm lens. The lens looks great (I tested on Leica M10 with adapter). However, when I got the negatives developed and scanned, something strange showed up in the photographs. I am attaching a few examples. Can someone with an experienced eye help me figure out what is going on so that I can fix this problem! Your help is appreciated.
  3. Just reorganized some old film and noticed this issue on this roll. At first I thought it's just flare but it leaks outside of the frame into the next picture. I also noticed that it's reaching above and below the frame and that its towards the end of the roll. Is it possible that this is a light leak through the film cassette? Someone suggested it might have been me changing the lens in daylight with light hitting the shutter curtain. I just can't explain how 1.5 frames are exposed with this leak but before and after nothing else is. the light leak also doesn't reach the sprocket holes, meaning it wasn't me opening the camera. (I know what those light leaks look like ;-) Thanks in advance!
  4. Hello, After saving for a long time I was able to do two things I’ve always wanted: Travel to Japan and buy a Leica M6!! I bought the M6 from a reputable dealer in Tokyo I was told it has just had a CLA. Long story short when I got home the 5 rolls of porta I took had a strange light leak. Not every frame and it moves slightly. It happens mostly mid roll say shots 15-30. I contacted the dealer and they paid to ship it back to Japan. They said they could not find the light leak but replaced all the light seals anyways. They tested it with film and could not duplicate it... I received the camera back and ran a roll though and still have this damn light leak. On thing I can think of is when I sent it to Japan I did not include the strap.... Thanks for reading and any help is appreciated. I’ve been searching for days and have found some info but the threads are old, pictures are no longer uploaded and original posters are not responding. Sorry for the small photos, it’s the only size I could attach. If it helps I can post more/bigger ones from another site.
  5. Hi all! Happy to be part of this group! I am really looking forward to the analog Leica rangefinder experience. I just shot my first roll of film this weekend and picked up my scans. However, I was a bit underwhelmed when I saw some artifacts that shouldn't have been there. I'm not sure what it is as I am unfamiliar with analog, so I thought it might be best to attach photos to describe what I'm seeing. I am curious to know if my copy of the M6 is defective, and what part is. First example, the bottom half of the photo is blacked out. What would be the cause for this? https://flic.kr/p/Z8c3YN Second Image, you can trace a faint blue line going from the center person's left calve all the way up past the dog's right eye: https://www.flickr.com/photos/101100257@N04/36814955114/sizes/l Third Image: Similar situation, a faint blue line going across the center (most obvious from his right arm): https://www.flickr.com/photos/101100257@N04/36814953464/sizes/l Fourth, is this light leaking from the top left corner? https://flic.kr/p/Y6dj47 I would greatly appreciate your insight. My gear: Leica M6 classic, Zeiss Biogon 35/2 Film: Fujifilm Fujicolor 200
  6. Hello Gentleman, Quick question. Would anyone know where this leak would be coming from ? Is it seals giving up in one spot or something else ? I am no expert on leaks. Any ideas / help would be appreciated. Thank you !
  7. Hi all, First time here, thanks in advance for any help or insights you provide! I recently purchased a Leica M6 —in what appeared to be mint condition. I ran through the standard checklist of items and it passed with flying colours. Unfortunately it was purchased from someone on Craigslist, and there's always a risk there. I got my first rolls of film developed, and it looks like there's a fairly significant light leak coming through. See below, a horizontal band that runs across the lower third of the photo: Has anyone here seen this issue before, or have any ideas as to what could be causing it? Any advice and/or insights would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Andrew
  8. Hey guys, new to this forum. I've had my Leica CL for about 6months, and she's my all around camera. Living in NYC nothing is better than having a small partner that fits in my messenger bag that leaves the weight back in the factory. Anyway, my question for you guys is about the light leaks I have experienced since i purchase the camera 6months ago. I discovered that my rolls would experience burns on 1-2 frames per roll. Always on the same spot // the bottom middle of the image. After some further digging and trial and error, I believe the culprit was myself. As I would go on photo walks with the lens cap off. And since the shutter blades never close completely when resting, I believe the light was leaking onto the curtain and bleeding onto the film.. This I may be completely wrong... Has anyone experienced such a thing? My Work: Jose Alvarado Jr. | New York City Photographer - New Work
  9. Hej, my beloved M4-P seems to suffer from a light leak. See attached snapshots. It appears on one or two exposures per film. All Images are taken with M4-P, Summicron 35mm Asph., original hood and B+W high quality ND Filter. I experienced it only with the Cron so far, though it seems to be body problem. My questions are: Common issue? Where is the light leak? Back door? Shutter? How/Where to repair (Berlin)? Complicated? Expensive? Thank you very much in advance!! Peter
