I purchased a brand new S typ 006 three weeks ago. I had my entire extended family over labor day weekend. At dinner I removed the camera from its case to take pictures. After I switched on the camera there were no warning alarms nor messages to suggest anything was wrong with the camera. When I pressed the shutter release button it made a terrible whirring sound and the mirror was locked in the midway position and after some more whirring the mirror went back down without exposing the sensor. The rear display was blank. I was unable to review previously taken pics nor view the camera menu. The display light is on but there is nothing being displayed. The top LCD shows camera settings but no error messages. I am Fedexing the camera to 1 Pearl court NJ in the morning. Does anyone have any thoughts as to what problems I might be facing. BTW I tried calling customer care USA to no avail however the gentleman who answered the phone in Germany was extremely polite and asked me to ship the camera to Allendale.I checked the warranty book that came with the camera and it mentions that Leica would send me a replacement camera should I need one. Does anyone have any experience with their loaner service ? Please Help . Warm regards Fritz
Went to the Tate Britain last Sunday, just before the new working week began. Quite interesting, but all the while, was thinking about the photography exhibition, Exposed, which I think is still running at the Modern. Also saw the David Bailey prints, and also flipped through a Nadav Kander book, which I was very close to buying, but didn't in the end. Instead picked up a Winogrand book 'Arrival and Departures' from a small bookshop in Old Street.
