It looked like new, and was overhauled to the point of what a new camera would have been like. By mid-afternoon when I called it quits I was half frozen, and my Nikons certainly were, but the Leica was like the Timex watch in the ads of the time, they just kept on ticking. Film advance is great, Just be carefull to load it properly, and see if the film catches on correctly. It is a matter of weighing these and determining if it is the right camera for you. The early morning went well, with the temperature at about the freezing point and with a moderate overcast. It has a remarkable quality and functionality - yet its unobtrusive and without image consciousness. By happenstance I had stumbled across a Leica fanatic who had himself taken a long shot with R4 and R6, and we had a reminisce about the old days.

Leica M6 TTL: Buying a example of a classic film camera

It all depends on the children in question and how they behave in front of a camera. I used the previous generation 35mm Summilux in years past and it was a favourite. Much of the top quality equipment was shrink wrapped. On one trip I was wandering the streets of Tokyo on a Sunday afternoon and came across a camera store with the most amazing display of Leica gear in the window. You can point to whatever middle grey reference, use exposure lock and ready. I think that this is the sign of a perfect camera, when you know it so well that you could use it in your sleep. But that said, why does it not fog the film over its length as the film is rewound, and which I would expect if it was continually leaking light? The soft click of the shutter release, the small size of the M6 body, and its relatively light weight make it a perfect walking companion, anywhere in the world.

Or is this down to the scanning? With the streaking, the light is limited to a certain part of the cap, but there is also a vertical fogging and which suggests the light leak occupies more of the capping area. The Leica M4-P falls somewhere between the Leica M4 and the Leica M6 in that it's styled similarly to the more modern Leicas with the two part film advance, the 'quick load' film loading system that I actually find to be slower than the older system , the same framelines as the M6, the. The viewfinders themselves don't seem to be much different, if at all. Sometimes some devices that run well on silver oxide batteries don't run that well, or sometimes don't run at all, on alkaline batteries of the same general specifications. I went on my way as soon as I could find the time.

The Voigtlander and Zeiss lenses that I used also provided a very pleasing look when paired with the full frame sensor in the M9. Pentax has a number of those lenses, at various focal lengths. You have a M3 in your hands, this is gorgeous. The M7…well, I am not a big fan of that particular camera. There is nothing that stands out about it at all, which is a huge complement.

A Leica comes to hand like no other camera. The plastic tipped film advance does more than I initially thought it would and is very practical in use allowing for an easy catch and stroke. That totally convinced me to get an M6 at that time. My Leica M6 Review I picked up the M6 in January of this year, and have used it daily, to the point that the black chrome is beginning to wear through. I may be lucky, but never had any issues or mechanical problems with all three M cameras.

Leica M6 vs Leica M4

Marty December 14, 2016 at 11:44 pm i hear you about the knob preference…that seems to be a very personal choice. The thumb grip on the back of the Bessas is a huge deal for those of us that hold our camera in our hand while we walk around and shoot. I do also shoot a lot of 12-15mm ultrawide stuff of huge crowds but because of the way it distorts people on the edges so much I may start trying this focal lenght. Compare the size of the two 35s in the first image of that first link. During that period I shot extensively with a Leica M3and M2. The good news is that you can keep finger pressure on the release and thereby control when the motor winds the film on. I also like to photograph children -- fast moving objects.

Leica M6

Because of manual focusing, this camera is not well-suited to take photos of sports action and so forth. I eventually sold it after a year and migrated to an M3 and a Zeiss 50mm and forced myself to learn sunny 16. Color balance in mixed light is incredible Leica is wonky and sometimes hard to fix in post , dynamic range is better, multiple flash is light years better, autofocus is incredible, and the list goes on. Still it lacks the brilliance of the Leica lens to a certain extent, mainly because it uses far more elements than Leica does. The popular saying is that the best camera is the one that you have with you, but I think that some cameras are more likely to tempt you to carry them around than others. I enjoy the rangefinder shooting experience. With minimal tweaking, all of the shots looked the same and blended in with one another.

Leica M6 vs. M7

Customs and import duties were due, but I had expected that. What surprised me is how flimsy the knob is, especially considering its precarious position on the camera — I imagine their logic was not to make it too strong, like a crumple zone on a car otherwise you might do serious damage to the body. Because the M6 is a purely mechanical camera there is no electrical shutter release and no auto-rewind. Historically Leicas, like all 35mm cameras, had a chrome finish. If not, the M6 nudges you in the right direction. The Leica M series of rangefinder cameras are indeed very tempting.
