  1. I took a very underexposed shot and tried raising the exposure 3.4 stops, and I expect noise, but what are these horizontal lines? Is it normal? This was taken with my 'new' used LeicaQ. Is this expected? I've never seen this before, and I've definitely shot underexposed before. Should I return this camera? Is it defective? Thank you!
  2. With the important caveat that this post is largely speculation, let's anticipate the performance characteristics of the M10-R sensor. The Leica S3 sensor is 45x30 mm (1350 sq mm) and the DNG files are 9816 x 6512, for a total pixel count of 63,921,792 pixels, or 47,349 pixels per sq mm The Leica M10 Monochrom sensor is 36 x 24 mm (864 sq mm) and the DNG files are 7864 x 5200 = 40,892,800 pixels, or 47,330 pixels per sq mm. The pixel density of the two sensors is so similar that I assume the discrepancy comes from non-scaling edge usage factors, and/or small 0.01 mm-scale rounding errors in sensor size. So if we assume that the S3 sensor and the M10 Monochrom sensor come from the same process, differing only in size and the presence of the Bayer color filter array in the former, then it's reasonable to assume the M10-R sensor also comes from the same process, and is basically a 36 x 24 mm crop of the S3 sensor (as others have hypothesized in this forum previously). If this reasoning is correct, then you can expect the M10-R sensor to be the same as the M10M sensor, plus a Bayer CFA, and to perform more or less the same as the S3 sensor on a per-square-mm basis. Therefore, I would expect: - DNG files that are 7864 x 5200 = 40,892,800 pixels - Dual gain design - 4.6 µm pixel pitch - Base ISO = 100 - ISO range = 100-50,000 (basically one stop lower than the 160-100,000 ISO range of the M10 Monochrom, as one might predict from the lack of the Bayer CFA in the M10M) - 14 bits per pixel Good ISO 12,500 photos and decent ISO 25,000 photos would be terrific, and a significant improvement over the M10/M10-P, as noted here: https://photorumors.com/2019/01/20/mega-shootout-sony-leica-and-phase-one-comparison/
  3. Hi all, does anyone know what is going on here? All of sudden every photo is like this or a different shape with sometimes a bit of the actual image sensor? sd card? processor? any help before sending it away would be much appreciated!
  4. I just received a used Leica T body today and while waiting for B&H to ship me the special order of the Novoflex Leica M to T body adapter I decided to order a cheap lens adaptor off of Amazon to use temporarily (and to make sure the camera body is functioning properly). I have a Zeiss 50mm f1.5 sonnar lens so I tried it on with the temp adapter attached to the Leica T body. It turned out that the camera couldn't capture anything. The live display is completely black when I turned it on. I was able to see all the menus on the camera but it seems like the sensor doesn't display any live image. Though I noticed it still measured the light when I pointed the camera to different targets. I was wondering if there's a way to test to see if the camera is working without a lens attached (like shooting an image with the camera sensor directly)? I wasn't sure if the sensor couldn't display any live image on the camera because I don't have the right adaptor or if the camera itself is actually broken. I need to figure this out soon so I could send the camera back if it is really broken. Any help or input would be greatly appreciated!
  5. Love the camera, but the manual is ofen next to useless. I can't seem to find anything about the sensor cleaning system in the Leica SL. Can any of you advise on the following: 1) How does the electronic sensor cleaning system work? Does it activate on startup/shutdown as it does on my Canon SLR, or does it have to activated manually? If the latter, where is the switch in the menu structure? 2) Is there a specific procedure to follow for manual cleaning of the sensor? 3) Is there a dust detection system similar to the one in the M cameras? Thanks.
  6. Hi all, I'm curious if anyone has tried bulb mode with its max 60 sec exposure with their M240? I'm thinking of trying to take snapshots of my vacuum tube amps but I'm wondering if anyone who's tried it have noticed any sensor heat creeping. Is there any concern of heat damage to the sensor? Cheers.

    M9 sensor

    Hi, How can I find whether my M9's sensor has been changed? Thanks
  9. Is there some good reason why Leica is not including an automatic dust cleaning feature in their M's? It's a necessary feature on a digital camera. The lack of this vibration/sonic whatever is the deciding factor in my upcoming purchase.
  10. Today i experienced for the second time that my Monochrom M246 failed to capture an image. It triggered as usual, it indicates the right shutter time in playback mode but nothing was captured/registered in the image. It's just a blank (read black) unexposed picture. I've tried to google this but did not find anything about this problem, that's why i'm trying here. Nothing was captured in the sensor and it's only a black picture with no data recorded at all. Has anyone in this forum experienced something like this?
  11. 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!
  12. Hallo Forum, ich habe kürzlich meine M9 nach So… nein, nach Wetzlar! eingeschickt, mit einem offensichtlich zerstörten Sensor. Auf den Bildern waren deutliche Kratzer zu sehen, beim Abblenden schärfer als offen. Ich bin davon ausgegangen, dass ich mich beim (vorsichtigen) Reinigen mittels Sensor Swabs schlicht zu blöd angestellt habe und den Sensor verkratzt habe. Anstatt eines satt vierstelligen KVAs kam jedoch nur die Nachricht zurück, der Sensor werde auf Kulanz getauscht. Möglicherweise lag also noch ein anderes Problem vor - ich weiß es wirklich nicht, aber ich war mehr als überrascht. Aufgrund der erwarteten langen Reparaturzeit von 8 Wochen wurde mir alternativ ein Upgrade auf eine M240 angeboten, zu einem durchaus attraktiven (Auf)Preis. Da ich trotz mehr-als-Vollzeitjob auf akademischer Basis nicht unbedingt im Bargeld schwimme und eine Familie zu ernähren habe, überlege ich jetzt schon seit etlichen Tagen, was ich tun soll. Zunächst muss ich die M mal persönlich in die Finger bekommen, einen Ausflug in die große Stadt werde ich wohl nächste Woche in den Terminplan einbauen können. An der M9 wäre halt hübsch, dass Sie mit neuem Sensor zurückkäme, kalibriert, gereinigt und auf meine Objektive abgestimmt, quasi wie neu. Der Verschluss hat auch erst 5.000 Auslösungen hinter sich. Mich würden die Meinungen der Umsteiger von der M9 auf die M interessieren, ob sich ihr Umstieg subjektiv gelohnt hat. Wenn ich den derzeitigen Restwert meiner M9 mit kaputtem Sensor betrachte, ist der Aufpreis auf die neue M gemessen an der UVP ein Schnäppchen, aber in absoluten Zahlen halt doch kein Pappenstiel. Dies gilt um so mehr, als ich zahlreiche der neuen Features bislang nicht vermisst habe: - Den schlimmen M9-Screen habe ich nur zur Iso-Verstellung verwendet und gelegentlich mal einen Blick aufs Histogramm riskiert. - Mehr als einen M9-Akku am Tag habe ich noch nicht leerbekommen. - Liveview ist zwar nett zur Vermeidung von Parallaxe und für die akkurate Ausrichtung, aber ich könnte wohl auch ohne. - Video an einer M brauche und möchte ich nicht. Das Knöpfchen würde ich sofort deaktivieren. Aber das Entscheidende ist doch: Wie steht es mit der Bildqualität? Ist der Umstieg auf den CMOSIS-Sensor ein solcher Quantensprung, dass man dafür soviel Aufpreis auf den Tisch legt, dass man anderswo eine komplette Vollformat-DSLR mit Glas davor bekomme? Oder sind die Unterschiede eher marginaler Natur? Ich würde sicherlich nicht dauerhaft mit ISO 3200 herumlaufen, aber die Option zu haben, finde ich beispielsweise bei meiner X100 schon ganz nett. Butter bei die Fische? Oder lieber die M9 behalten und auf die nächste Generation warten, hoffentlich mit Bildfeldwählhebel, ohne Video und von mir aus auch ohne LCD? ;-) Ich bin für jeden kreativen Vorschlag dankbar. Viele Grüße, Henning
  13. Hallo, nachdem ich mit meiner M9 nun 2 Monate auf einen freundlicherweise kostenlosen Austausch des Sensors warte und von Leica keinen Hinweis bekomme, wann denn nun die neue Charge an M9 Sensoren kommt, wollte ich fragen: Weiss jemand wann die neuen Sensoren kommen und ob man dieses Jahr noch mit der Kamera rechnen kann. Auf der einen Seite finde ich es toll dass Leica zu seinem Wort steht und die Sensoren kostenlos austauscht, gleichzeitig stellt man sich die Frage ob man die Kamera nicht gleich nach Austausch verkaufen sollte, Hat jemand schon den 2ten Austausch des Sensors hinter sich?
  14. Sensor dust: I really like my M9P but it is a magnet for sensor dust. With the new M I can imagine it can get even worse with liveview. Any information if there is a dust-removal function? Any ideas how much we will have to deal with dust with this camera? Which brings me to my second question, how is the shutter implemented: Is there no mechanical shutter blade and the sensor is always visible? Is the shutter implemented fully via the COMSIS sensor, or will a blade shutter kick in with very short shutter speeds? According to the website of COMSIS, the sensor itself must have a shutter function as it can take several hundred images per second for the movie function.
  15. It is apparent that the circuit board for image processing needs to be replaced in my M8 for about $1000. I have read here that it is soldered to the sensor. Does that mean that the sensor must be replaced as well? Are the two, as a unit, replaced for $1000?
  16. Hi all! This is my very first post in here and i'm sorry this is pretty annoying for you. Lately, i'm experiencing the same problem as described in this thread: http://www.l-camera-forum.com/leica-forum/leica-m9-forum/223557-help-again-sensor.html So, i'm going to send my M9 back to Solms. I have a question for all of you who, sadly, have experienced the same problem as mine: have i to send also a lens to the Leica customer care, in addition to the camera and the SD card? My question came up after reading the needed accessories on the RBS (battery, battery charger, SD card, lenses resp. camera). Thank you in advance. Enzo
  17. Hi everybody I am exhausted a year and a half ago, i buy my first digital leica, and some lenses, few thousands euros of new equipement after a year, i had to send it to germany cause the letther was going out, it took me 7 weeks to get the camera back... i got it back a month and a half ago, and since some time, I notice a raw of red pixels on every single pictures I shoot, it appears mainly when I shot under, but it's always here I speak with Leica by mail they want me to send back the camera, but I know it will take few weeks, I live in Israel, and these days I have to use professionaly this special camera for assignements Does someone know any software that could help me to fix shooted pictures automaticaly ? thanks for your precious help noam
  18. Hello all, I have recently bought a Noctilux ASPH (under warranty), and decided to have it perfectly calibrated and matched with my M9 (out of warranty). So both were sent to Leica Solms. Now Leica's representative tells me that the M9's CCD sensor is misaligned and some repair should be charged. When I ask this person if the misalignment is due to some incorrect tolerance during the M9 assembly, he answers that it is most certainly due to some chock or bad usage like "skiing with the camera" (!). Have you met some similar issues if "sensor misalignment" before ? Was it due to unsifficient tolerance during assembly, bad QC, or some chock (how bad) ? Do you know if a sensor can really move that easily ? The only case I have found was due to bad QC checking : http://www.l-camera-forum.com/leica-forum/customer-forum/260171-some-thoughts-leica-quality-leica-nj.html Thanks & regards, David
  19. Hello all, I have sent my M9 (out of warranty) and my new Noctilux Asph (under warranty) to Leica Solms in order to have them both calibrated. Now Leica tells me that there is a CCD sensor misalignment, and some repair services have to be charged. When I ask if the misalignement is because of a tolerance issue during the body assembly, Leica representative answers it must be because of a bad usage and a chock, for example "skiing with the camera" (!). Have you heard of sensor alignment issues with the Leica M9 before, and do you think the M9 is so fragile that the sensor can shift ? Or is it a case of bad QC? My black-paint M9 does not have any sign of chock. The only similar case I have found is here, and it seems to be a tolerance/QC issue : http://www.l-camera-forum.com/leica-forum/customer-forum/260171-some-thoughts-leica-quality-leica-nj.html Thanks and Regards

  21. Hi, Just discovered the dark side of the Leica sensor issues (cracking etc...). My M9 serial number doesn't seem to be in a batch of bad IR filters: 3977 That being said: has anyone bought Leica's extended warranty for 390 euros? It seems that we have conflicting experiences where some got their unwarrantied cameras serviced for free and others didn't. I bought my camera in april 2011, so I should be out of warranty in about a month. It's a year warranty right? I'd just like to get some opinions on this extended warranty offer and the sensor issues. So far, I had to no problems with my camera... No card problems etc... Maybe froze a couple of times... Thanks!
  22. Hallo zusammen, vielleicht begehe ich ja einen Dankfehler an dieser Stelle, aber dennoch wage ich es: Wenn ich eine Landschaft mit einem s/w - Film aufgenommen habe, dann setzte ich z.B. einen Orange-Filter ein, um das Himmelblau dunkler zu machen. Dabei wurde auf dem Negativ die Eigenfarbe dunkler und die Komplementärfarbe heller. Im anschließenden Vergrößerungsprozess wurde dann, da das Blau weniger Deckung hatte der Himmel dunkler wiedergegeben. Der Sensor der MM gibt direkt ein Positiv. Dann müsste man eigentlich einen Blaufilter nehmen und das Himmelblau abzudunkeln. Das würde aber für den s/w-Photographen ein Umdenken bedeuten. Oder verhält sich der Sensor wie ein Negativ und wird direkt in der Kamera-Bearbeitung zu einem Positiv umgerechnet? Da keine Farbinformation vorhanden ist müsste hier der Nik-Filter eigentlich auch bei der MM nicht wirksam sein (zumindest ist er das bei meiner M8/M9 nicht, wenn ich s/w-jpgs bearbeite). Gruß Michael
  23. Just found out that my next M246 suffers from sensor issues. My first M246 was replaced because there was an error with the sensor on the first one, and now it's happening all over with the M246 which replaced the first one with sensor error; i have to send my next M246 to service. Three years ago i jumped in the water: I switched to Leica from Nikon (and a short period with Canon) after 25 years without any techinical faults or issues what so ever, and i never looked back. That is until now, because i'm wondering if i really want to stay with Leica after these experiences after all. Three years with severe errors on two different digital bodies (sensors). - Is this sufficent enough? - What would you expect from Leica's customer service in this matter? - Would you go the other way around again, turn the back on Leica and return to Nikon based upon the experiences these (first) three years? Or shall i just tolerate this?

    M10 Artifacts

    Hello everyone, long time reader first time posting. I purchased a Leica M10 from Camtec in Montreal almost two weeks ago and I'm in love with it. I used it on a few shoots and just recently on a weekend getaway. More often then I'd like to admit, I miss the exposure and rely on the dng to recover. So when recovering the shadows in an image I underexposed dramatically, I was surprised to see red, blue and green pixels lighting up all over the place on the image. Does anyone know what these could be? I've never experienced this with any other digital camera. And I don't think it's dust, these are pixel sized points. Thanks in advance! Andrew
  25. Any suggestions whether I should send my M246 to Germany for cleaning or save time and do it locally with a reputable dealer? May be one of Leica stores? I am in NYC. I got a few small spots on the sensor over the year of use and a few thousands shots. Appears to be like wear & tear naturally in progress. I do not feel I would try cleaning on my own...
