  1. Just bought a used M8 and it has Firmware 2.005 on it. I can see the latest is 2.024 but there have been minor problems with it. Is there a list of what features were added in each firmware? What version would everyone recommend I go to (if I need to change at all?) TIA
  2. Here is a short review of the M8 - if you are thinking of acquiring a copy, this information may be of value. The evolution and advances of digital photographic technology has left the M8 by the wayside, but as the author of this review observes even with its limitations it is still a capable image making tool. https://casualphotophile.com/2020/07/09/leica-m8-review/
  3. Anlässlich des interessanten Vortrags von Peter Karbe "Fotografie - Technik im Wandel der Zeit" am 14. Oktober 2021, besuchte ich das Ernst Leitz Museum und hielt meine Eindrücke in ein paar Fotos fest:
  4. any point in coding my lenses? 90mm elmarit 50/1.2 canon (code as noctilux?) 28/3.5 canon (not sure)
  5. Hey guys! A new member here As stupid as it may sound I still cannot believe I finally got a Leica camera myself. Been waiting for this moment a very long time, gone through a "GAS cloud" switching systems from A7II, X100T, X-Pro1 and finally settled with an M8.2 which I got in mint condition, 105 shutter count, for only 1100€! I first thought there's gotta be something wrong with it, for the price to be set so low, but due to irresistable price I immediatly bought it and did not regret a single €. I'm using it with previously acquired Minolta M-Rokkor 28mm f2.8 coded, and without the common white spots problem, which I won on Ebay for 310€ incl. hood, uv/ir cut filter and I find the combo superb in it's performance. I'm wondering what's the actual price range now in mid 2016 for a used M8.2 as I can't seem to find any, anywhere. Seems like I had lots of luck Best regards, Andrej
  6. Hallo liebes Forum. Das ist mein erster Eintrag. Ich habe lange rumgesucht und keine Antwort auf folgendes Problem gefunden. Ich bin stolzer besitzer einer Leica M8u und habe seit ein paar Tagen das Voigtländer Nokton 50 1.1 an der Kamera. Mein Problem: Wenn ich perfekt fokussiere, sind die Bilder trotzdem unscharf. Der Fokuspunkt liegt immer etwas weiter hinten, als auf dem Punkt den ich durch den Sucher fokussiert habe. Ich habe Testfotos bei unterschiedlichen Blenden gemacht. Aber bei allen Einstellungen kommt am Ende ein unscharfes Bild zustande. Um scharf zu fotografieren, muss ich den Fokusring etwas weiter nach rechts drehen. Also über den Punkt hinaus, auf dem ich eigentlich scharfstellen will. So kann ich leider immer nur auf gut Glück fokussieren. Viele Bilder sind einfach nicht perfekt scharf. Das Probelm habe ich schon im Fotofachladen angesprochen. Der Techniker hat mir empfohlen den B+W IR-Sperrfilter zu kaufen, in der Hoffnung das das Fokusproblem mit ausgeglichen wird. Das hilft aber leider auch nicht. Ich habe noch zwei andere Objektive, ein 28mm Minolta mit Leica M Bajonett und ein Leica M 90mm. Beide fokussieren perfekt und präzise. Das Voigthländer hab ich gebraucht, aber so gut wie unbenutzt gekauft. Ich hoffe mir kann jemand helfen. Würde mich nur ungerne vom Voigtländer trennen, da es sonst ein sehr schönes Objektiv ist. Grüße Rouven
  7. Dear all, I am totall new to the leica digital world. I currently brought a M9 in a excellent condition. But one thing makes me a little bit wondering: sometimes the LCD display shows me pictures with strange rings. It happened very often when I shoot in-door under poor/artificial light source. the rings disappeared when I shoot under higher iso (1600 or higher). Leica Care told me it is normal. The camera have to compress the original photo extremely to be able to show it on this small LCD screen. Due to the bad resolution and colour depth of the compressed picture, these rings may appears. The explanation by Leica is quite OK. But yesterday I have the chance to try a Leica M8.2. It doesn’t show any rings when shooting under the same condition. Now I am really confused. Can anyone tell me if it is normal bei M9 or my LCD is somehow defect? Thanks s lot for your help! Best regards Frank
  8. Here is an interesting article about the M8, along with some photographs that show the camera's capabilities, if you are willing to work within its limitations of the 160-2500 ISO range: https://www.35mmc.com/26/06/2020/leica-m8-finally-falling-in-love/ At the risk of stating the obvious, with any Digital M camera ISO appears to be a very significant factor with regard to image quality. I tend to work with ISOs of around 10-15% of maximum on my digital Leicas (Q2 and M-P 240) in the interest of image quality. I/Q does not always seem to be a linear proposition, though. With my M-P 240, I have made images at ISO 1600 and even 3200 that still result in exhibit quality prints at 16x24 inches, depending on subject, lighting, shutter speed and probably a whole kettle full of other intangible factors. The M8 was a "gateway drug" for this photographer, as he has decided to upgrade to an M10. He took the affordable bait and now he is hooked! 😄
  9. I put my M8 aside for a few years as I was a little disappointed in it. Its ISO limits and poor dynamic range plus the limits of an optical finder with an old fashioned rangefinder were becoming increasingly apparent to me. But lately I have been giving it another go and have been using it, getting good results and enjoying it. Especially its color rendition. I always shoot in uncompressed RAW by the way. Looking back through my older images downloaded to my PC I noticed that many were not terribly sharp - despite the supposed benefits of having a sensor without an AA filter. I am not talking about the apparent sharpness when viewed on the camera's LCD which of course is terrible for this purpose, I am speaking about the images saved on my PC explicitly. I initially put this down to focus errors (mine) and its one reason I became discouraged from using the camera. But then recently I started seriously post processing many of these images with Adobe Lightroom rather than just leaving them on the PC. The thing I noticed is how well the M8 images which started out a tiny bit soft - or in some cases quite soft, sharpened up nicely without artifacts. In fact in my view they sharpen up much better than those of any other cameras and lenses I regularly use (and I use cameras by Nikon, Sony, Panasonic and Olympus). I should add that I am presently mainly using Lightroom for this and other processing. It set me thinking. Is this what they mean by the sharpness benefit of not having an AA filter over the sensor? I had expected that without an AA filter the images would be sharp right out of the camera even though the DNG images presumably get no in camera sharpening. But not so in my experience. Is this consistent with other people's experience of image sharpness from an M8. Do you find the M8 images respond to sensitive and well executed sharpening better than other cameras which presumably have an AA filter. BTW I used to use the Nik Sharpening Efex filter but now generally just use Lightroom's filter. This image started out a little soft out of camera but now looks quite acceptable for portrait purposes. The Look That Says it All by Life in Shadows, on Flickr
  10. Hallo, ich habe aber die Suchfunktion zwar schon benutzt, bin aber auf nur wenige für mich relevante Artikel zum Thema Bildbearbeitung von Leica DNGs auf dem iPad gestoßen. Entweder suche ich falsch, oder das iPad scheint nicht sonderlich beliebt für die Bildbearbeitung zu sein. Wie dem auch sei, ich bin auf der Suche nach Tips und Erfahrungen zu dem Thema. Seit Jahren habe ich eine M8 und habe meine DNGs immer per CaptureOne auf dem Mac bearbeitet. Allerdings sind meine Macs und auch mein CaptureOne etwas in die Jahre gekommen und letzteres läuft seit einem OS Upgrade nicht mehr. Ich scheue aber die Investition in die neue Software, weil ich dann wohl die Hardware auch bald erneuern müsste. Aber ich habe ein aktuelles iPad Pro, dass mich, wie auch meine M8, auf allen meinen Reisen begleitet. Bis jetzt habe ich Apple Fotos und Adobe PS Express auf dem iPad ausprobiert. Allerdings bisher nur mit JPGs. Beides macht weder Spaß, noch bietet es mir die Optionen, die ich gerne hätte, wie Tonwertkurven oder selektive Bearbeitung mit Ebenen oder Masken. Hat jemand von Euch dazu relevante Erfahrungen? Gruß Tim

  12. Hi I'm new to this forum, after buying a second hand Leica M8 and a second hand cron 50. I love the gear, but can you tell me if the ccd is too old or something else is wrong. Can it be fixed? If you magnify the attached pic You can see in the dark parts have lots of white spots. Best sabPHOTO
