Hey guys, I'm new to this forum and I'm also new to the Leica M system. I just bought my new m10 one month ago with a Elmarit 28mm ASPH (so far). After some shooting I noticed a relatively big spot in the upper right part of the sensor. I don't know how this could have happened because I never changed lens till I opened the camera and attached the Elmarit the first time. It's very annoying to pay so much money for a camera and then having a spot on the sensor. Do you have advice what to do now? Should I send it to Wetzlar or can I fix it on my own? I did a sensor cleaning on my DSLR once, but I'm a bit afraid of doing so on this expensive, new camera. I don't want to make it worse... Cheers, Sebastian
In Menu>Camera, I have 3 options for Exposure Metering Mode, i.e. Advanced, Classic, Classic with LV disabled. In Set>Metering Mode, I have another 3 options, i.e. Spot Metering, Center-weighted Metering, Multi-field Metering. Because of shutter lag, I hate to use Advanced metering mode. So I chose Classic in Menu>Camera. Now, I am uncertain which mode I should pick in Set>Metering Mode. Suppose I pick Multi-field Metering for Set>Metering Mode, then will I be able to meter in Classic Metering mode leveraging the Multi-field metering algorithm, instead of Classic & Center-weighted? Or is Multi-field only allowed to be functioned as a sub-set of Advanced Metering mode only when set so in Menu>Camera? In addition, if I hit the LV button for live view shooting while my M 240 is set for Classic & Multi-field metering, does my camera change the metering mode automatically to Advanced & Multi-field as long as I remain in LV mode? And I don't have to re-set back to my preferred metering mode immediately after I finish the LV mode shooting, am I correct? Lastly, what is your preferred mode between Center-weighted and Multi-filed? Thanks in advance for your advice. Don
Last month I noticed some strange light spot in some shots, spot1.jpg and spot2.jpg on the boy's chest. Looking at these shots and one other, it seems the spot was resulted somehow from the camera/lens. I thought it was just some one-time error, for whatever reason. There cannot be any assisting focusing light from the camera for sure, but anyway. Now today I got this spot3.jpg, and the same light spot appeared. Again on a boy's chest! I tried to find a thread about this but in vain. Monochrom + Summicron 35 + shot at 2.0 ISO 1600 and 640 raw file only These shots are exported directly to jpg in LR4 without any extra processing. Anyone has any idea what can this be?
Hi All, Wonder if any of the people shooting and printing black and white could tell me where I could find spotting pens for retouching traditional prints in the UK? When I was at college we used packs of varying shades, but I can't remember what they were called now and it seems that photographic retailers only want to stock products related to inkjet printing these days. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
