  1. I know, this topic has been up before. But the thing is that I own an M6 Panda manufactured 1989. What I´ve read and find out so far is that there was no Pandas around before -91. But I am 100% sure that my camera is an original from factory camera, based on from whom I bought it. First original owner and I know when and where he bought the camera, early 1990 in a small town in Sweden. My guess is that they started to be built in the series 1772501 - 1775000 in 1989. I have seen other up for sale within that range. The serial number is 1773xxx I need to do some more research on this topic.
  2. Hi to everyone here, I currently owned M6 and MP (type 240) by nature, i usually like shooting at 35 mm focal length. I am aiming to upgrade my summicron asph to a summilux which 35mm summilux lens will be the ‘one lens’that would fit with my two camera bodies?(digital and film) I will be studying abroad( in edinburgh), so i would like to hear thoughts and comments from fellow experienced users in this forum. Thank you
  3. Hello all, First time here so thanks in advance for you help. I've scoured the internet trying to get to the bottom of this pesky problem but have yet to find a proper solution. In 5-10 exposures per roll, I get these white horizontal bands across the frame, always in the same place at the top, and sometimes at the bottom. It happens at different shutter speeds, apertures, with different lenses and with different developing labs. The light leaks occur on the negatives and on the scans. It extends between exposures on the negatives and isn't restricted to each rectangle. Weirdly, the majority happen indoors with 1/30 @ f/2.5 but they also happen in bright light outdoors. I had Youxin Ye do a CLA one year ago and he replaced "the light seal from the shell to the back door area" and "added a light strip at the back door edge". Unfortunately the light leak issue wasn't solved. I've shined a flashlight through the curtain in a pitch black room and no light comes through so I wonder how it could be the curtain. Also, as far as I'm aware, it seems like the issue with holes in the curtain manifests as white spots on the negatives, not horizontal white bands. I'm including a couple pictures hoping someone could help me diagnose this particular problem. Thanks in advance for you help!
  4. So I bought my first Leica M6 0,72 TTL couple of weeks ago and was finally getting my roll developed at a Local lab here in Stockholm. Getting back the rolls I saw leaks on the negatives and prints, going from the first few frames, then skip a few frames and come back at frame 10-12. After that nothing on the rest of the roll. Some have leaks going across from perf to perf and on one or two frames it only occurs around the perfs but not affecting the image. And it's not on the same spot of the frame, it moves back and forth. I shoot a 400 Kentmere factory loaded. The seller says that he never had problems with leaks of the camera, but is very helpful to help me get this sorted. Anyone know what this can be? I really hope it's the film, waiting to get back my second roll and hoping for the best...
  5. A couple of photographs I missed when first browsing through my rolls. All taken on Kodak Tri-X film, some with my Leica M6 & 35 Summicron IV some with the mju-ii. You can see more on my flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/derphilipppp/

  7. Anyone know anything about this special edition M6 Titanium? I bought it off ebay but can't really find any info on it. The top plate reads: H.R.H Prince Saud Bin Abdul Mohsen Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud Presented by Leica Camera and Ahmed & Mohammed Saleh Kaki Thanks

  9. A small series I did on the Austrian tradition of "Almabtrieb". This is just a selection of pictures from the full series here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/derphilipppp/albums/72157659340180141 Leica M6 - 35mm Summicron IV - Kodak Portra 160 In case you don't know what an "Almabtrieb" is: The "Almabtrieb", which translates from German as: "drive from the mountain pasture", is an annual event in the alpine regions in Europe, referring to a cow train in autumn. During summer, all over the alpine regions cow herds feed on alpine pastures ("Almen" or "Alpen") high up in the mountains (a practice known as transhumance). In numbers, these amount to about 500,000 cows in Austria, 380,000 in Switzerland and 50,000 in Germany. While there is often some movement of cattle between the Almen during the summer, there is usually one concerted cow train in autumn to bring the cows to their stables down in the valley. This typically takes place in late September or early October. If there were no accidents on the Alm during the summer, in many areas the cows are decorated elaborately, and the cow train is celebrated with music and dance events in the towns and villages. Upon arrival in the valley, joint herds from multiple farmers are sorted in the Viehscheid, and each cow is returned to its owner.

  11. Some photos I took in Joshua Tree NP while on a trip through the southwestern US with my trusty M6, 35 Summicron and a whole bunch of Kodak TriX. If I remeber correctly I think I also used an orange or yellow filter on these shots ....

  13. Hey everyone! I have been noticing a small hair in the upper right hand corner of my developed film scans. Here is a link: http://imgur.com/a/SjQK8 Was wondering if anyone could give e some suggestions as to where this could be coming from? It seems to move around slightly, and I have used a rocket air blaster on the inside of the camera + lens with no results. Using a lecia m6 ttl with a 35mm summicron f2 asph Any help would be appreciated! Thank you.
  14. Hi there, I recently purchased an M6 and plan to shoot black and white film with my 35 Summicron Version 2 8 Element lens. I read that many people use either the orange / yellow filter when it comes to shooting monochrome, I would just like to get your thoughts on which one serves better as an all purpose lens? And how exactly are they different when applied? Thanks! Regards, Jeffrey
  15. 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.

  16. Hello to all, I would like to request your help/advice. I currently own and use a Nikon F3, but feel the need for something new to help with street/travel photography. After doing a fair bit of research I have come up with buying either the M5 or the M6ttl. I can't actually go to a store and handle these cameras and I will be buying online, I am drawn to the M5 but the worry is I am buying something bigger than my F3 when I am looking for something less intimidating when on the street? however the shutter dial and viewfinder look like great additions. With the M5 it seems the Shutter speed in the viewfinder would also be useful and perhaps better than the LED's in the M6? Could anybody who owns an M5 post some size comparison photos to give me some idea of what it looks like next to the F3? How Do you find the M6 TTL, LED system? I will be predominantly using a 35mm and 50mm lens to start with. Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated, Thanks !
  17. Hey, I went to Vietnam this summer and shot a series that was among other featured on the leica camera blog. You can check that out here: http://blog.leica-camera.com/2016/09/25/lounging-in-vietnam/ But of course I shot a lot more than just those few images in the series! So I still had a ton of photos from my trip to Vietnam buried in Lightroom. I haven’t posted any of them anywhere because I couldn’t really figure out how to arrange them in a story that would make any sense. Also most of these photos are a tad too touristy for my taste. But since I still really like them and can’t stand the thought of never showing them I decided to split them up into a couple of smaller sets and post them on my blog - of course fully aware that tumblr is pretty much dead these days. But hey, any place is better than the depths of my hard drive. All photo are taken with a Leica M6 and the 35mm Summicron IV on Kodak Portra 160 or 400. You can find some of the photo already on my blog and I will keep updating over the next few days. Blog: http://lifeon35.tumblr.com/
  18. Hello folks! New to the forums. I have a m6 that I'm been using with a 2.5 50mm cron. I'm getting superb images overall, however I feel like there are some that are not coming back sharp or in focus. Especially ones focused at infinity. I'm wondering if it's an issue with my m6 or cron. A few images attached as example. Thoughts?

  20. I'm looking to trade up my 35mm Summicron ASPH to a Summilux for my M6. I shoot only film and so I've been craving a slightly faster lens that'll go well with slow film. After some research, I'm torn between all the different types of Summilux's: - Pre-ASPH/Classic (cheaper, prone to flare, prone to focus shift, softer on the edges, and has the classic Leica glow/rendition) - Aspherical (super expensive, a non-option for me) - ASPH (a little cheaper than the FLE, still prone to focus shift, sharper than the Pre-ASPH, still has the classic Leica glow/rendition - not as much as Pre-ASPH though) - ASPH FLE (expensive, no focus shift, really sharp, lots of contrast, more modern Leica look) I'm leaning towards the ASPH and ASPH FLE, and the only reason why I'm leaning towards the ASPH FLE was that the focus shift is mostly eliminated with the floating lens element. However, I kind of like the classic Leica look that the regular ASPH has. I've also read places that focus shift is less prominent in film cameras. Is that really true? Should I just spring for the FLE version?
  21. Hello Lads, I have been shooting Kentmere 100 for a minute now. Some of the rolls I tend to push to 400 and really loving the results. I find kentmere 100 when shoot at box speed to be sort of flat and pleasant in look but when rated at 400 it becomes angrier:) and with more character. Not bad for a 2.5$ dollar film. Attached pic of my son Milan. thanks !
  22. Liebe Forumsmitglieder, ich habe ein sehr gut erhaltenes 90er Objektiv und möchte gerne Portraits photographieren. Da ich noch auf der Suche nach einer Kamera (M6) bin, habe ich bei einem bekannten Fachhändler angerufen. Dieser meint, dass die M6 eher für 50er Objektive und Streetphotographie ausgelegt ist und dass es mit einer Suchervergößerung 0.85X /90er schwierig für Anfänger ist, vernünftige Ergebnisse zu erhalten. Da er Experte ist und ich Laie denke ich, dass der gute Mann Recht hat. Dennoch würde ich gern von Euren Erfahrungen lesen. Muss ich das Objektiv abstoßen? Also Kombi M6 / 50er als Brillenträger mit Dioptrin +2,0? Danke für Eure Tipps. Viele Grüße andreas61
  23. Hallo, nach längerer Zeit bin mit meiner M6 mal wieder wie "in den guten alten Zeiten" ein wenig durch die Gegend gezogen. Im Dortmunder Osten habe ich diese nette Straßenszene eingefangen, viel Spaß damit. Benutzt wurde ein Summicron 2/50 an der M6, der Film war ein Kodak 200er- Farbnegativfilm. Die Belichtung war 1/125 bei Blende 8-11. Durch die relativ tief stehende Sonne von Seite her wurde die ganze Szenerie gut ausgeleuchtet. Ich war bei der gewählten Belichtung skeptisch ob da was Vernünftiges herauskommt, aber das Ergebnis fand ich doch am Ende ganz überzeugend. Scan von KB-Negativ , nur in der Breite heruntergerechnet, keine sonstige Bearbeitung.
  24. Hallo zusammen, ich bräuchte mal die versammelte Kompentenz in diesem Forum. Bei einer meiner M6 ist eine Schraube am Filmtransporthebel verloren gegangen die den Plastikaufsatz auf dem Filmtransporthebel festhält und gleichzeitig dessen Beweglichkeit ermöglicht. Ich würde jetzt mal auf eine Zapfenschraube in der Größe M3x1 oder ähnliche Dimension tippen. Ich füge mal zwei Fotos zur Erklärung bei. Ein Bild zeigt den Hebel mit den noch vorhandenen Teilen an der einen M6 (ohne Schraube) und das andere Foto den Normalzustand (mit Schraube). Kann mir hier jemand weiterhelfen bzw. hat so eine Schraube für mich übrig? Vielen Dank im Voraus!
