Last August? And you're only coming on here now? I would guess that by now there is little hope.

 

Apart from the police report what else did you do back then? Let Leica know the serial nos? Claim on your insurance? Check eBay?

 

Oh and welcome to the Forum!

I havent put it up on here until now because I am actually just a broke student living in Taiwan, but the box for my camera was in a storage space in the US so I didnt know the serial numbers. I have contacted leica and I check Ebay regularly. I don't have homeowners insurance or anything so I guess I'm basically screwed. It got stolen when i was waiting with all my luggage at the Paris Cambronne (Line 6) station. The serial numbers for the lens and camera are as follows. Guess I'm hoping for a miracle.

Unlucky. Your only real hope at this late stage is that whoever has it now has to send it into Leica for a repair - if you have reported it to them and can prove ownership, they should reunite you.

 

As an aside, I left my lllf on a cafe table in Paris one breakfast time. I only realised about an hour later when I went to take a photo. Managed to find the cafe again and there was the camera, just where I'd left it!

Another aside from France: a gentleman approached me and said: "I see you have a Leica without a lens cap. I found one on the corner down there, could it be yours? Indeed it was, I thanked him and I walked back and picked it up where he said he hat put it.

Many years back I had left my bag with two CANON F1 in a bank in France when I got money. About 1 hour later I turned up and the bank manager had kept it for me. Needdless to say that I bought a couple of bottles of PASTIS for the staff.

One reason why I always keep a business card inside my camera bag !!!!!

A bag doesn't always gets stolen but one just "forget" sometimes !

 

And by the way, it's not that easy to have your camera gear insured !!!!

So that's not always an option .

      Hello All,
      Recently my beloved M4 was stolen in Washington State.

      My M4 is Silver and the serial number is 1190748.
      Please keep a lookout on local classifieds if you see a Leica M4 show up for sale.
      It was my first Leica and I desperately want this back. 

      Thank you.

      Because of the covid-19 lockdown I am unable to go out on to the streets to photograph, not that there are any people around. I am therefore still working through my archives, and came across this image from Paris in 2002. Taken with a Leica M6, 50mm Summicron f2 and using Kodak T400CN film (which I used to love!). I hope you like it.
      I have also been revamping my web site using Adobe Portfolio, which is part of the Lightroom/Photoshop package, and like the results so far, although it is a work in progress. Take a look here

      I found this little old camera is amazing. I hope you all enjoy it.

      Paris has always been a special place for street photography for me and, although I haven't been there for far too long, I try and emulate  the work of its' great photographers such as HC-B, Robert Doisneau and (dare I say) Peter Turnley. For me it is like fishing on a great trout stream in that you are always bound to have a good catch.
      This was taken in 2000 using my M6 and Kodak T-Max 400 film home processed. I think it was with the 50mm Summicron lens, although I can't be 100% sure.

      From my 'Paris' portfolio. Taken on an M6 using Kodak T400CN film commercially processed. I am sorry but all lens details have been lost, but probably a 50mm Summicron f2.
