By monTeurHey 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...
By Tina ManleyI'm having a terrible time printings some portraits for a gallery show. I'm using Ilford Galerie Prestige Gold Fibre Silk paper, 13x19, and printing with an Epson 1430 Artisan printer. I'm printing through LightRoom, using the Ilford profile for that paper. I've turned off color correction for the printer itself and am using the color settings in LR. I'm using Relative Intent. Here is an example of my digital file:
Here is an iPhone photo of the actual print:
See the greenish shadow on her jaw? All of my portraits are printing with these green shadows somewhere. I've tried adjusting the color balance of the whole photo which makes it too pink and I've tried adjusting the toning of just the shadows which doesn't seem to help.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. This is driving me crazy!!
By PeterSchlichtLadies and gents,
I searched the net since quite some time for experiences and examples that demonstrate the performance and quality of Leica M10 or SL files for large printing. With large prints I mean sizes up to 150cm (60") on the long side. There are lots of comparisons and reviews between cameras of different makes, e.g. between SL and Hasselblad X1D, but they concentrate mainly on usability or spec-sheet resolution etc. They don't say anything about the final product, which is the print. Print quality from files of a particular camera is nearly never mentioned or discussed. I would like to ask the community here for experiences with printing large from Leica full frame cameras such as M10, SL, 240 or even M9. I know, many of the answers will state "quality is subjective", "depends on viewing distance" or "depends on expectation", etc. But maybe this thread is able to shed some more light on people's experience. I'm sure there must be some prints out there of such sizes. Did you send your SL or M images for example to services such as whitewall.com to produce such large prints? Do you print yourself? How do M or SL files hold up in a 40x60" print? Are they totally inferior to a print from digital medium format... ?
