after a year, i had to send it to germany cause the letther was going out, it took me 7 weeks to get the camera back...

i got it back a month and a half ago, and since some time, I notice a raw of red pixels on every single pictures I shoot, it appears mainly when I shot under, but it's always here


I speak with Leica by mail they want me to send back the camera, but I know it will take few weeks, I live in Israel, and these days I have to use professionaly this special camera for assignements


Does someone know any software that could help me to fix shooted pictures automaticaly ?

Write an action in photoshop.


Make a one pixel wide selection of the offending line, then run content aware fill.


When you make the selection. hold down the shift key to keep the line straight and vertical.


The tricky part is identifying the exact location of the dead pixel. Do not go to !00% as then the line is two pixels wide. Try doing a photo of white paper and color select red. Every pixel on the screen has a X Y location which you can use to reproduce the proper selection/fill.


To keep the selection one pixel wide, put 1 in the width at the top. Try making a green line on a higher layer and moving it until it hides the red one. The arrow key will move it one pixel at a time.


once the action is written, use a droplet to apply it all photos in a batch.


I have done it and it works. A bit tedious if you do not know all the tricks.


Profesional means you have back up equipment.

      Hi, I shoot a lot of commercials.
      I bought sl2 this time.
      An incident occurred during the first commercial shoot using sl2.
      The picture came in well on the capturer one, and there was no problem taking it.
      Then, at some point, the camera went completely out of order.
      Touch screens are not available and power buttons are not available.
      If a stop occurs, the battery must be forcibly removed.
      And when we film again, things go well, and at some point, af stutters.
      It stops again.
      This phenomenon continued to occur on the set.

      Usage environment - macbook pro, capturer one, ether cable (usb C), sd card not used

      I'll connect the link. I would appreciate it if you could check and tell me the cause.

      Laika only says it's an SD card problem even if there's no problem at all.
      There's no problem, so there's nothing I can do for you.
      It's so frustrating.
      SL2 All functions stopped.

       Hello from Japan. I bought a used Leica M7 because it was a great price with two lenses. I love the features and proportions of the M7. Most of all, I love the fact that the camera was born in 2002 (I have a personal attachment to 2002). Of course, there is the issue of the repairability of the electronic shutter.
       Now, my Leica M7 that I bought is a bit scratched up. It's used, and it's an early model of the M7. But since it is my first Leica and I plan to travel with it until it is beyond repair, I want to freshen it up and make it beautiful. Initially, I was looking for a repainter, but I couldn't find one who repainted the M7, at least not in Japan. In the course of my research, I found out that Leica offers Redesign Options, and on Reddit I found a guy who had replaced the top cover of his M7.
       Is it possible to revive the Leica M7 with Leica's Redesign Options? Also, has anyone done that? I would like to do an overhaul on my Leica and replace the exterior parts at the same time. There is not much information about that. If the replacement of the exterior is not possible, I would like to engrave the print on the top cover.
      Thanks in advance.
      P.S. I heard that Leica Japan is a bit unresponsive on that front, so I'm asking here.

      Hello all.
      My Leica Q of two years all of the sudden shows a pretty severe Purple / Greenish tint to everything through the back LCD, but not in the EVF or the actual photo files. The issue popped up out of nowhere after a flight, and I've done everything I can on my end to fix it but nothing has worked. Anyone else have a similar experience? Really trying to avoid sending this thing in for however much that will cost to fix. Firmware is up to date. The photos attached are the difference between the back LCD and the EVF (Which has normal color). Apologies for the bunk iPhone photos but at least you can see the difference in color.
