Hello, I just bought an M7 and I cannot trigger in aperture priority mode. No problem with other shutter speed. I tried with different light and.. nothing. Also I don't see the shutter speed in the viewfinder. When I set in On, I see my ASA (400) during 2 sec and after there is nothing. I changed the batteries but it didn't change anything. As anyone had the same problem ? Thanks for you answer :-)
For some reason, the shutter speed shown on the LCD screen is 1 or 2 stops slower than the shutter speed that I have selected. For example, at this second I have 1/15 on the knob, but my LCD screen says 1/15. I now just shut the camera off, and turned it back on - the shutter speed on the knob is now matching up to the LCD screen. Fast forward after taking 3 shots, and have switched my shutter speed to 1/125, but 1/60 is being display. As confirmation, after the photo is taken, the shutter speed that was taken into account is the one that is on the LCD screen. Help?
Folks, I've just got me a used M8. When I look through the view finder, I noticed that the shutter speed display LED is very blurry. But at the same time, the focusing RF patch in the center of the VF is clear and sharp. I tried to google online but don't get the information I need. Please advise why this happens and how to adjust it? P.S. since the RFpatch and focusing looks clear, I assume the eye piece of the VF should be fine, am I right? (I do have a -1.0 and a -1.5 correction lenses if it's necessary to replace the eye piece.) update: I did put on the -1.0 and -1.5 correction lenses to try but didn't see any improvement of the shutter speed readout. I also put on a pair of glass and that didn't help either... update2: I also brought the m8 to a local camera store. A guy look though the VF and also confirmed that the m8/9 shouldn't look that blurry ======= I doubt that is something I can fix by myself (I didn't have such experience nor the specific tool to dissemble Leica before). How much this might cost? Any idea? Thanks.
I am a relatively new X1 owner, and a relatively ignorant photographer. That unfamiliar bit of modesty being said: My understanding of traditional photography lore is that 1/60 is the slowest speed that will prevent camera shake. (I know the there is a more complex formula that applies, 1/lens length or something, but nothing slower than 1/60 is the shorthand version I have always used.) And yet when I put the shutter speed in auto mode, the X1 will let the shutter go as slow as 1/30. I'd set the camera so it wouldn't go slower than 1/60, but the menu doesn't have that option. I ask because I believe that I am suffering from camera shake. If I take multiple shots of a single subject, some will be just a bit fuzzy. Just a bit--on the edge of imperceptible. But still fuzzy to the critical eye. The only explanation that occurs to me is that I'm not holding the camera steady when I take the fuzzy shots. I would switch to 1/60, but the X1 won't let me, in violation of longstanding knowledge. What's the deal? I should add that, notwithstanding this problem, I love the X1. Last summer, I was hanging around the camera store, bugging them about the X100 arrival date. Just as a goof, I asked to see the X1. As soon as I picked it up, I realized that I had asked a very expensive question, and that there was no way I was going to walk out of the store without it. For years, I've been looking for the digital equivalent of the T2. The X1 is the first real contender.
