By yaacovkRecently i buyed a flash with synch cable for my LEICA M4.
After made one shot with the flash, i exidently pressed again on the shuter release without advancing to the next frame.
I payed attention that the flash fired again.
I want to mention that the shutter speed dial is in the flash mode
Is it normal? or i have a problem?
Thanks in advance.
By shootsSOS HELP!!!
I dropped my Leica M4 and according to the NYC Camera Doctor repair team, the prism that creates the ghost image in the rangefinder is dislocated and needs to be replaced. They suggested that I send it directly into Leica for repairs, becuase the rangefinder is a complicated mechanism they wern't equipt to fix. They also let me know that Leica, located in New Jersey, dosen't do specific repairs and will want to do a full tune-up. Money is a concern, and I'm not prepared to pay $1000-ish if I can at all avoid it. I just want my range-finder to be functional.
Has anyone had rangefinder work done, espeically on an M4? Would you advise having this work done by Leica or an outside repair person, such as DAG? Any experience or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I have a M4 and a M6. With the M6, the loading is super easy, basically dropping the film and close the bottom plate.
With the M4, if I don't pay close attention to the loading and advancing 3 times before closing the bottom plate (checking that the film is taken up correctly), the film can loosen from the taking spool (tulip). This has happened a number of times and I always dread it might happen. Now, I think I have a workaround but I have to waste 2-3 frames.
Any suggestions? If it needs a service, what would most likely be the parts? And being from 1970, would those be available?
I love how the M4 feels and operates in my hands but the M6 TTL is more reliable...
Kind regards, Joakim
By ThomasSmithDPHey 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
