  1. I'm curious about the reported improvements in the M10 rangefinder. Twice in the past decade I've returned from overseas trips only to find that my rangefinder went out of alignment during the trip, resulting in many out of focus images. One trip was with M8, the other with M 240. I did not have the EVF on the second trip, and I have not yet learned how to adjust the rangefinder. So, my question is this: is the rangefinder on the M10 more "stable," for lack of a better word, than previous rangefinders? Otherwise I am content with my 240. I have large hands so the size/weight does not both
  2. I've just downloaded the Red Dot Camera app from iTunes. It simulates a manual focus "rangefinder" by using touch-screen dials for shutter speed, ISO, EV compensation, and focus There is no auto-focus or zoom, but a choice of three fixed focal lengths; nor is there aperture control, due to the small size of the lens. As an iPhone 5 user, this is more intuitive and less cumbersome than the device's own camera. It's free with an imprint on images or you pay for the full version. Colin.
  3. I've updated my Leica M article series with a new page 43 on how to focus the Rangefinder / Meßsucher The Decisive Moment - Focusing the Leica M - Part 2/5 This is the 2nd of 5 new pages on focusing a Leica M. The first page is also online here: The Minority Report - Focusing the Leica M - Part 1/5 Feel free to comment and suggest further tips. Next page is on using the EVF
  4. I wanted to capture this moment during my visit to the exhibition of Steve McCurry in Old Town, Prague this year. There were 107 of the best photographs from career of Steve McCurry, the contemporary icon of world photography, including author’s most important photograph, this portrait “Afghan Girl”.

    Camera: Leica M-P (typ 240) Lens: Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH. Location: Wien No crop as usual... I liked the tones of yellows in the picture and believe that her yellow hat completes this tonnage there.
  6. I like the concept of the M262 as a stripped down rangefinder for those who do not need or want live view and video. For those who have used the M262, three questions: 1) How does the range/viewfinder compare with the M9, M240, and film Ms for clarity and ease of focusing? 2) How does dynamic range compare vs M9 and 240? 3) How does white balance compare? Thank you in advance.
  7. So, my M3 arrived on Christmas Eve and now has a roll of HP5+ in it. Still working on the settings to cope with the light and lack of meter (using iPhone Light Meter App for now). Just means taking two shots all the time as I realise I've checked something but not made any changes! A real change from my previous SLR/DSLRs - things are now always in focus, except in the little square. I know practice is the best form of learning, and I'm doing a lot of that. But does anyone have any recommendations for books on rangefinder technique?
  8. I wanted to capture this night scene just because of the lights coming from the ground and the bokeh behind. Camera: Leica M-P (typ 240) Lens: Noctilux 50mm f/0.95 ASPH. Location: Dubai / Jumeirah Beach Residence
  9. Among the many possible answers to the first question – Why Leica? – my preference to the M-system has been the relatively small size and low weight of the bodies and the majority of lenses, the overall superb optical quality ranging from ultra wide-angle to medium telephoto, including a unique set of fast lenses, the brilliant optical viewfinder (when properly calibrated) and, with the digital Ms, mostly fine-quality, full-format sensors. Overall, the system has the feeling of being an instrument, not some plastic-stuff put together in millions of copies. The price of the instrument p

  12. While I was wandering in Reykjavik streets, saw this little boy was checking outside from that window. Quickly turned my camera on, focused and pictured him. Fortunately he was not shy to give that pose or he might think he's hiding behind the frosted glass. Camera: Leica M-P (typ 240) Lens: Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH. Location: Reykjavik
  13. I'm downsizing and looking for a nice portable digital rangefinder style camera primarly for travel. I currently use a Canon D1x which I now find very difficult to pack around given the plethora of heavy lenses. That being said I was initially attracted to the Q but find the fixed 28mm is just a little to wide and restrictive. I love the new SL and seem to always find ways to justify it but truth be told I find the new lenses bulky and over size. The flexibility of being able to use quality lenses appeals to me greatly and perhaps the SL with a 35 & 50 mm Lux's might just change my mind bu
  14. I stumbled across this website yesterday looking for info on the drawing style of a Leica lens. Most of the current crop of Leica lenses are discussed, along with photographs from those lenses, and also the ZM and CV lenses too. It's a useful resource. http://rangefinder.yodobashi.com/lens/index_e.html
  15. I'm considering buying a Leica for the first time. From some video reviews, I noticed that with a 50mm lens, part of the rangefinder frame is occupied by the lens. Does that mean that with a 35mm lens, an even bigger portion of the frame will be occupied by the lens?
  16. SOS HELP!!! I dropped my Leica M4 and according to the NYC Camera Doctor repair team, the prism that creates the ghost image in the rangefinder is dislocated and needs to be replaced. They suggested that I send it directly into Leica for repairs, becuase the rangefinder is a complicated mechanism they wern't equipt to fix. They also let me know that Leica, located in New Jersey, dosen't do specific repairs and will want to do a full tune-up. Money is a concern, and I'm not prepared to pay $1000-ish if I can at all avoid it. I just want my range-finder to be functional. Has anyone had
  17. Hi everyone! I know that there are already discussions on this subject and I followed them to do the vertical alignment procedure on my m9, but I saw that nobody had my problems, so I ask you some advice, maybe someone has had my same experience and can help me. This is what I did: I removed the red Leica dot, I dropped a drop of acetone on the adjustment mechanism of the vertical alignment and after a while I inserted the special tool into the hole trying to pivot and move the mechanism. I have not seen any drops of glue on the mechanism or anything that looks like glue. However, I notic
  18. Hi I have recently bought two Leica M6 cameras with various problems, and are wondering which one to keep. The best looking one is a Wetzlar M6 and has the following problems: - The rangefinder patch flares significantly more than the other M6. This seems to be caused by haze on the inside of the rangefinder window. My leica CL has less flare than both. - After the shutter trips, I am able to see a little bit of the seam on the left hand side of the shutter looking inside of the camera from behind. It is somewhat visible when looking straight on and compared to the o
  19. Hello, actually on a trip in London , m’y m10 rangefinder suddenly stop coupling with my lenses. in fact, the little wheel wich get contact with the lens stays blocked on the infini. If I put it in thé right direction I can feel itsabnormaly hard to move. what happened ? CAN Ifix it by myself -? Is there a place in London where it could be fixed ? thank you for your help
  20. Hello everybody, this is my first post and I would like to extend a friendly hello to all of you and also to thank you for your time! This thread is not about finding the right screws for adjusting the rangefinder, but rather about one of them not wanting to move. The infinity adjustment (horizontal plane) seems to be a tiny bit out of alignment with my M5, and although it probably will not have a significant effect, it still nags me. One factor might be that the brass barrel of the lens I commonly use appears to be quite worn, so that when "freshly" attaching the lens, everyt
  21. Hello guys, I found that my lecia m4 RF alignment need to adjust. However, when I want to screw the biggest bolt in the mount, I found that I can't screw it. It totally fixed. I google a lot of article, but I don't find anyone else has same problem like me. AS a result I come here to ask you guys; is there anyone had same problem like me?8
  22. I've been having difficulty to focus both my life and thru the rangefinder, it is very frustrated. Forget my life, if I place a ruler flat and at zero degree toward me (12 and 6 o'clock) and see it thru the rangefinder from 45 degrees adjacent. The focus block that moves left to right sees the ruler at 1 and 7 o'clock which is approx. 10 degrees off clockwise. It happens on all my lenses, so I can presume that the rangefinder is creating this issue. I was expecting the image block is also at 0 degree. Is my camera normal or the rangefinder is misaligned?
  23. Before I owned the M6, I used to have the Canonet QL 17 GIII. It was working perfectly until I stopped using it for 3 months. The shutter got stuck. When I took it to the repair shop, they asked if I have left the battery inside as the shutter/ self timer is very sticky and dry. So I'm wondering if I should remove my M6's battery when not in use to prevent shutter jam?
  24. What are your thoughts on Leica rangefinder/viewfinders vs other cameras? I am currently using a Canon Canonet that I recently purchased. I am interested in purchasing a Leica, but am worried that the rangefinder/viewfinder might be too hard (squinty) for me to use? I do wear glasses. Mahalo!
  25. Hello, I am reading this forum for quite a while now and finally got my own Leica M6 about two weeks ago. I bought the camera from a German dealer on Ebay, optically it's in perfect condition and I was very happy... until I got my first scans back. I am experiencing the worst front focus issues I've ever had with any camera. After the first roll I thought it's me, after the second roll I was suspicious and then shot the third roll testing the focus. Except for the minimal focusing distance, every single image is off. And not only slightly. Now my question to the Leica pro's here in
