By MeftyIch reise viel und komme dabei mit vielen Menschen in Kontakt. Interessant dabei ist, dass ich fast ausnahmslos auf meine Leica M angesprochen werde. Entweder, weil sich einige vom Look der Kamera angesprochen fühlen, oder weil sie erkennen, dass es eine Leica ist. Bei vielen ist es sicher auch eine Mischung von beidem. Sehr schnell geht es dann um die Kamera und die Marke. Mir werden Fragen dazu gestellt und ich komme so sehr schnell in die Situation, mich gefühlt erklären zu müssen, warum ich ausgerechnet diese Kamera benutze.
Das interessante ist, dass mir dies mit meiner Leica M deutlich öfter passiert als mit anderen Systemen, die ich nutze oder genutzt habe.
ich habe meine Gedanken mal dazu in einem Video festgehalten. Hoffe ich bekomme jetzt hier keine Klassenkeile weil ich "Werbung" für unseren Kanal damit hier mache. 😊
Ansonsten einfach dem Admin melden mit bitte um Löschung. 😉
Mich würde mal interessieren was hier so für Beweggründe bestehen.
By UltraDanHi there,
Can anyone offer me some simplified advice for using a flash with my m4p, I have an old sunpak auto 140 flash that is non settable and is activated via the ports on the back, what I wanted to know is :
how do I gauge my shutter speed and aperture for two situations 1) outdoor in good/fair light 2) indoor
and is it better to use one of the ports over the other (M or X)
Thanks in advance,
By TxikiHi guys,
this is my first post, regarding my first Leica which I bought on Ebay.
It was listed as having an issue with 1sec shutter speed being way too fast, which I didn't care much because it is a shutter speed I don't think I am going to use at all. I received the camera, really good cosmetic condition btw, and I noticed that all slow shutter speeds, below 1/30sec were off, way too fast. After googling the problem, I found that that can happen after a long time without being used, and that firing the shutter several times throughout all the shutter speed range might work. So I did it and it worked, for all shutter speeds except 1/8 and 1/30. I compared it side by side with my Canon 7 and they were the same-ish by the naked eye. And now, I have just tried something and if I fire the shutter with the camera upside down, 1/8 sounds ok, halfway between 1/15 and 1/4. And I promise I haven't been drinking or anything 🤨
So, today, I have contacted by email 4 Leica repair shops in the UK. Two of them have replied, one that they cannot do it because they don't have spare parts, and the other that I should return the camera and ask for a refund. So I went to the only Leica repair shop that I know in London, which I am not going to say its name. So, I got there, the guy took the camera, he wasn't listening to what I was saying at first, started firing the shutter and making appreciative faces saying, yes, slow speeds are ok. Until I got him to listen to what I was saying, and then he saw the problem with 1/8 and 1/30. He told me the camera would need servicing (now the finder needed service too because it wasn't a clean view..., but also that they wouldn't probably need any spare parts), which is fine, normal price for a CLA for a Leica. But he also advised I returned the camera to the seller. So I don't really know what to do. The camera has that problem, it looks in good cosmetic condition, and, whatever they say, I been after one of these cameras for like a year, and I have never seen one in this cosmetic condition for less than a grand. And I bought this one for £750. I have asked the seller if they would refund me the cost of the repair, but they haven't said yes, just have asked me to check if I want and let them know.
So, what do you guys, as Leica users, think? Just a honest, and blunt if necessary, opinion.
