Hi Ruben,

 

Yeah, its part of a micro series, of sorts. I'm not sure if the dust was from the J8 or the scanner I used (not mine). I don't post process much (bar some cropping and vignetting on my digital stuff), so most of my images come on a take-them-as-you-find-them basis. I'll upload another equally dusty OOC shot soon

hi there

 

from a composition point of view, the overall scene is very neat, but i wish the person was relaxed or even slumped over . . . the outstretch hand (for some reason? ) looks bad to me . . . i would also punch up the contrast (i read you comment about not postprocessing, but jees . . even scanning has some inherent postprocessing).

Dave,

 

Totally take on board what you are saying. This shot is actually part of the first roll I have ran through my M6 - a test roll, if you will. I was still getting a feel for manual focus and using the exposure meter, so I suppose composition wasn't on the fore front of my mind - that will probably come with time and experience (both of which I have very little of).

 

I'm expecting the highlights of my next roll (of far tastier HP5!) to be of a better standard. We'll see. Thanks for the comments, none the less - its very appreciated.

      Hey Guys,
      I wanted to buy a used leica since months now. But I am still unsure if I should go with the M6 or the M4? The only big difference is that the M6 has a lightmeter and the M4 not. But since I work in the film industry. I wanted to buy a separate light meter anyway at some point. So is it better to go with the cheaper M4 and get also a good lens instead of spending a lot on the M6?
      Looking forward to your replies
      Best
      Thomas

      Has Leica ever officially confirmed that M6 TTL light meter is not repairable by them? I've read mixed information in this forum and elsewhere where "some" owners have sent the camera for light meter repair and some have had it repaired and others have received a response from Leica that they can't fix it. What specifically is so unique about the M6 TTL light meter vs the M6 classic light meter that makes it so complex for repair.
      Obviously I'm interested in purchasing an M6 TTL in great condition - found one specifically with a 0.58x viewfinder which is very important to me since I wear glasses and shoot primarily 28mm and 35mm. I enjoy the in-camera light meter and hoping that in a few years down the line ...the M6 TTL does not turn into M4-P if the light meter malfunctions for any reason. Thanks in advance for the feedback.

      I have used Leica m240 for a while, and recently have bought Leica M6 as recommended by my friend, the last time I shot a film was almost 20 years ago (it was a school event, where we had to learn how to shoot film); but since then, my photography experience is pretty much always digital.
      I travelled to Copenhagen last weekend, and decided to give myself a bit of challenge, so I only took my Leica M6 with couple rolls of Fuji C200; the metering and focusing are pretty much identical between M240 and M6; so it was not that hard for me to use the camera, having said that, without the ability to view the image straight-away did take me out of the comfort zone as I had no idea how the image would look like.
      Followings are some of the images i would like to share, those are small default scans from the film developers, so the resolution is pretty low, i'm currently exploring options of scanning those negatives using my other digital cameras. Anyway, any C&C is welcomed.

      Hallo zusammen, mein SF20 Blitz löst auf meiner M6 leider nicht nur beim auslösen aus sondern feuert auch beim spannen. Ist das ein Defekt? Kennt jemand die Lösung?
      Ganz herzlichen Dank für eure Hilfe
      Nicolas
