Just got my first Leica, a tip toe in with a used DLux 6. Anyhow, unless I’m doing something wrong, the dial seems broken. Have I missed something? In manual mode, for example, you spin it right or left for shutter speed, nothing happens. Just before I send it for repair I wanted to check with an experienced user if I was doing the right thing and hadn’t missed something obvious.
thanks in advance
It's been more than a year since I've posted! Did I miss anything?
I'm currently living in Turkey, teaching on a Fulbright. I'm still taking photos though, my cameras here are my faithful M9 with 40mm Summicron-C lens (and occasionally a Voigtlander Nokton 50mm /1.1 —a hefty lens I should use more), my trusty D-Lux 6 (G-Star Raw Edition), and my iPhone 7 (to be honest, the iPhone 7 is my most used camera). I'm posting photos, every so often, on my website. Here is the link to the gallery of pics for my year away from New Mexico:
On the weekend of Jan 6, I was in Istanbul for a few days. That trip also coincided with a pretty hefty dumping of snow. So, on the 7th, I wandered around Sultanahmet with my D-Lux 6 and took some photos. Here's one of those pics.
I've recently acquired a Leica T to add to my quiver of Leicas, and I'll be picking it up in a few weeks. When I get back to Turkey, I'll travel around with that camera too.
I'll also try to post more pics here and there on this forum.
Happy 2017, everyone!

I have D-Lux 6 which I still carry for work because it is smaller than my 109 and has a pop-up flash. The problem I am having is that when I take interior shots, the flash turns the images into very warm tones. This does not happen if I shoot without the flash. What am I doing wrong.
I have owned and liked the D-Lux 6 but ultimately found it too bulky (especially with EVF) ad was seldom encouraged to carry it around in addition to an M system. But I like the new Leica C because it could offer similar IQ (allowing for the slower but longer zoom) and is extremely compact and self-sufficient, with retracted lens, auto lens cover and a built-in EVF, even though small and low resolution. I think I could be persuaded to get one. My initial thoughts here on my blog if anyone is interested.
