    For sale my beloved Leica Monochrom with the sought-after CCD sensor. Great conditions overall despite the age, screen is immaculate with a screen protector fitted from day one. There are some usual wear and tear around the body but nothing too drastic, there is a very small dent in the bottom right frame of the screen - barely noticeable but I thought I'd mention it. It comes fully boxed with 2 original batteries and 1 third-parties. Obviously with the updated sensor (CCD 53) and with 13400 clicks on the shutter. This returned from Wetzlar few days ago with a brand new main board, as well as usual: -software adjustment -clean sensor -adjust range finder -adjustment of all parts -cleaning and end control I'm looking to fund a M246 which I recently tried and got me hooked, so if anybody wants to swap I will offer some extra cash - otherwise a straight sale is fine. I would prefer a UK sale for speed and security but we can find a way if abroad.

  3. Did you need the yellow filter for the clouds? Could similar or same be achieved post? Having specified a Q2M I wonder whether I should be looking out to fit yellow or orange glass in front of all that nice Q2M design?

  7. I just now happened to stumble upon this essay on the M10 Monochrom which is accompanied by a nice set of sample images. In thinking about the concept of a black and white only digital camera in general and about the M10 Monochrom in particular, I was smitten with a thought that I cannot shake free of: The M 10 Monochrom may well be the pinnacle of the digital M camera. It is going to be an awfully hard act to follow. If anyone can best the M10 Monochrom, it would have to be the gents and ladies of Werzlar. https://www.popphoto.com/story/gear/hands-on-leica-m10-monochrome/
  8. Here's an interesting photographer. Appearently she only used MM for this project. Half greek like myself. http://theempireproject.com/lang-EN/exhibitions-45/works-1434/
  9. I did a search here on the Forum to see if there was any history or discussion on an interesting problem I was having with my M Monochrom 246 but found nothing. Therefore, I thought I would document my experience for the record. My issue was that the shutter was randomly misfiring, either too fast or too slow. This was producing some "unusual" results with some exposures unpredictably wildly off the mark. In my blind trust of Leica, I was a bit slow to conclude that the problem was with the camera rather than me. At first, I could not understand how such varying results could be produced in aperture-priority mode but gradually began to suspect the shutter. I took a series of shots of the same scene and the same lighting, with the same aperture, but with a manually-selected shutter speed both in "S" and "C" modes. As it turned out, the shutter speeds for each image file were all over the place with the minority at the actual set speed. Furthermore, it did not seem to matter what shutter speed was selected and, of course, it did not matter what lens was on the camera. When I wrote to Leica Camera USA describing my situation, I got an answer in pretty short order with the suggestion to do a camera Reset. This worked! The Reset function apparently is a like a o/s reboot on a computer which sadly had not occurred to me as a possible solution. Of course, all my menu-driven customizations were wiped out with the camera reverting to the factory default but that was a small price to pay to have normal shutter operation restored. Anyone else seen this?
  10. Hello, On the 14th of August London Camera Exchange in Bristol are running a free Leica M street photography workshop. The workshop will be run by Leica M user Robin Sinha who has run workshops for the Leica academy in Mayfair London. The workshop will include a 2 hour street photography session with Robin in the picturesque city centre area of Bristol, we will then move to the Bristol Hotel where Robin will be offering advice on taking and editing your photos, image composition and much more. The workshop is free but we do have very limited spaces available. Further details can be found at the following link. Please call 0117 9291935 to book a place or email us at Bristol@LCEgroup.co.uk. We hope to see you there. Tom Greetham http://www.lcegroup.co.uk/EventOpen/?683
  11. This morning in the Plaza, Rincon Puerto Rico. With my newly received (used) MM. Summarit 75.
  12. This is regarding theoretical resolution only. Nothing else. Written by someone with no electrical engineering knowledge or background. Just a physics question, if you will. The 246 part is easy. I get it. Each pixel on the sensor reads a different density of light, all the data are collected, and a monochrome file is generated. Sounds simple although I am sure it's not. On the 240, the sensor is covered by a Bayer filter, which is a series of quadrangles of RGB micro prisms. Each prism has a "filter factor" The camera's software must consider this filter factor to come up with a true density of each pixel, and then must extrapolate from the four pixels what the color of that quadrangle of filters must be. Hence, the resolution would be less than a file generated by a monochrom camera because four pixels are involved in calculation of a color point vs. one pixel per light density point. But regarding conversion of files to monochrome in a 240, why can't the software correct for the color filter factors to assign a density of gray to each pixel while ignoring the color extrapolation? Wouldn't this theoretically keep the resolution of a monochrome file from a 240 the same as from a 246? The micro filter should not affect resolution, which is determined by what comes out of the back of the lens and the individual pixels. It's not as if the poor optical quality of each micro lens would affect image quality. When I enlarge Thighslapper's DNG files from the two cameras up to 1200% and convert the 240 to gray scale, I see absolutely no difference in the gray shading of the individual pixels. (No, this isn't extreme pixel peeping, it's trying to understand how the sensor and software work). So, I'm wondering, at low ISO's, shouldn't the resolution theoretically and practically be identical? And isn't it the lack of "filter factors" which largely accounts for the increased ISO performance in the 246? More photon can strike the individual pixels so the noise is less?
  13. Just curious if anyone is pondering buying a new MM in 2015, rather than the new M246? If so, I am interested to know why. I just got back some 20x30" prints I took last year on my MM. I love the look of them, and wonder if I might in fact like the look of the M246 files less. Almost every other consideration points to getting the M246 instead of the MM - better body, buffer, live view and better screen for certain lenses / edges critical work, and no sleepless nights worrying about CCD corrosion. The current price differential might be one consideration. The MM is currently being offered 'street' price' 29% less than the M246. But if I opt for the M246, I will wait for its street price to drop a bit. Meantime, this is the last chance to get a brand new Monochrom... So the price difference is not part of my thinking. I've read what Erwin Puts has to say on this. Just wondering if anyone else is in the same current dilemma? Thanks.
  14. Hello! We are offering a free 1 hour tutorial session on the Leica M-Monochrom (typ 246), here at our store in Bristol, on Baldwin Street. The session will be a great opportunity to get to know the Monochrom if you haven't had a chance to use it yet, and as long as the weather permits us, give you some time to use it around the harbour side with our resident Leica expert Tom Greetham. Those who attend our free tutorial session will get the chance to partake in some exclusive Leica offers as well! We are pretty flexible regarding dates and times for this session, so please let us know if you're interested and we can try to find a time that suits you. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! If you wish to book a place on the course, please email bristol@lcegroup.co.uk or call 0117 9291935. We look forward to seeing you there.

  15. Hello, We are running another Leica adademie based photowalk on the 30th of January 2016 in the centre of Bristol. Robin Sinha, from the Leica Academie Mayfair will join us and provide a valuable insight into the Leica M system. This practical day will teach you how to get the best from a rangefinder camera and take classic "decisive moment" photography that Leica is renowned for. the day will start at 10.30am, there will be a Leica M body and lens for each attendee to try (as well as X and T system) and will consist of the following: 10.30am – 11.00am – Robin Sinha will introduce you to his work with a short talk using his own images to demonstrate Leica Photography. 11.00am - 11.30am - Review and mini-critique of attendees images (attendees are asked to bring 4 images on a USB stick that represent their photography) 11.30am - 12.30pm Familiarisation with the Leica camera range prior to photowalk. 12.30pm – 1.00pm – Lunch break 1.00pm – 2.30pm – Photowalk around Bristol using the Leica cameras provided 2.30pm onwards – Back to the studio for image review and critique. 4pm approx - finish The location will be a bit different to the last one, probably based around the temple meads/temple quay area so right next to the main train station. If you wish to book a place on the course, please email bristol@lcegroup.co.uk or call 0117 9291935. Please let me know if you have any queries and look forward to seeing you there. Tom
  16. I took these photographs in Paris last Thursday, 12th November 2015, with a 28mm Summicron and Monochrom (v.1).
  17. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, how did you resolve it? Recently acquired a MM however I've been unable, after untold attempts, to download Lightroom v5 and Nik Silver Efex to my mac. software-support at leica-camera.com have kindly reset my license count several times now however I still haven’t been successful. The problem is the download starts, then download speed drops to a few kbps then disconnects in about 10-20 hrs. I got around Lightroom by downloading a 30 day trial version from Adobe, download took about 5-10 minutes, then entering my licence. I got an email from Adobe warning me that my free trial expires in 30 days however hoping my licence means it will ok. I didn't have any problems downloading Lightroom v4 when I got my ME. Never had any problems like this before. We've been using Macs since last century and I've never experienced anything like this.
  18. I got into Leica through the M9 and loved it for a while, but sold it last year as I was increasingly frustrated by the shutter noise and the primitive lcd screen. I kept my Leica lenses and now use them occasionally on my M2 and more often on a Sony A7. Whilst the A7 does a good job producing high quality images with 35mm and above lenses, I now miss the true digital rangefinder experience and have been thinking for some months now about getting the M240 or the MM. I convert 95% of my images to B&W and so the MM might make a lot of sense: users seem to have a religious zeal for it, and certainly the images are unique in terms of contrast, and grain. However, I remain concerned that as it is the same architecture as the M9, it will still feel clunky in operation and out of date. So, my questions are, in view of the huge financial outlay - should an owner of some beautiful Leica lenses without a Leica body buy: (a) the Leica M (still discounted new in the UK); or ( the current M Monochrom (second hand); or © hold out for a new M Monochrom built on an M240 platform? Also, any updates on when this might be released? And do you think the likely improvements (Live View, better screen, higher ISO) could be outweighed by drawbacks (e.g. heavier, less classic, more cluttered)?

  21. was my first thought... Downtown, NYC MM/28mm summaron
  22. This morning I had a second go with my MM and SF-24D flash, which I hate. Lens was 28mm summicron. For clarity, I was going for an exaggerated flash that would create a stark contrast The crack flash doesn't allow a shutter faster than 1/180. So I'm considering upgrading. [ATTACH]444192[/ATTACH]
  23. Just picked up the M240 to use as a second, and more reliable body. After having shot 160k+ frames on my M9, the sensor is starting to go (pixel streaks along the right side of the image at ISO 800+). I'm wondering, is it possible to "hack" the M9 body to think it's a MM by replacing the M9 sensor with the MM sensor? Perhaps there's also a firmware update needed as well, so the M9 would pull in the menu options from the MM, specifically the higher ISO. I'm sure someone has considered this and has a POV to share. Thanks!
