I just received my M 240 and am having problems getting the frame lines and the exposure meter to come on in the optical viewfinder (the rangefinder window). The frame lines flash on and off. The exposure indicators (the triangles and the dot) appear at random. I've been using M9s on a daily basis, so I am familiar with the basics. The M 240 has some new complexities, so I thought I would ask the forum for suggestions of what I might be doing wrong before sending the camera back. I didn't see any relevant posts. Thank you for any help you can provide. Tim
Last Friday and Saturday I went to enjoy the final days of Amsterdam Gay Pride, including the Canal Parade. I was carrying a minimalist set up: My beloved M Type 240 + 'cron 35 asph + Thumbs Up EP-10S + spare battery. Back home I made a Blog posting with some text and a couple of pictures, primarily to update my friends and family on the event, but of course you're welcome to have look, too: Gay Pride Amsterdam 2013 – a personal account | Norbert Steinkamp. Most of the evening and night shots in my report were taken at ISO 3200. In some situations it was so dark I wouldn't even think of focusing on something. The camera's been a delight to use. I was operating it in classical RF mode, which implied hip shooting and focusing guesswork. I may bring the EVF next time, however, while being a great tool for the exact work, it often interrupts fast and intuitive picture taking.
