Having problems with your Leica M8 Digital Camera ?

The metering of my M8 is always over 1 2/3 stop, any way to make the adjustment? or have to send it back to Leica?

Answers :

Leicas are norrmally quite good on metering (within the confines of spot metering).
\015\012Have you checked whether any exposure compensation has already been programmed in? I don't think it resets itself, so if its consistently 5/3 of a stop out, then it might be that.
\015\012Page 107 of the user manual shows how to adjust / check..
\015\012Manual is here:
\015\012If its not that, you could use that function as a short term measure to consistently change the exposure.
\015\012You don't say how old it is.... if its still under warranty (actually, even if it isn't but its still reasonably new) I'd be tempted to correspond with Leica directly (write first - they respond quite quickly) to establish what they think the problem and solution should be. The 8 went to 8.2 quite quickly (by Leica standards), so its always worth an initital sounding out (which costs nothing). If it is their fault, they'll instruct you what to do next.

I have a Canon Powershot S3 IS and I was looking at picture I had taken and the lens was retracted. I switched to the camera mode and the lens started to come out and hit my leg and stopped half way. The lens went dark. I turned it off to retract the lens and then turned it back on. The lens came all the way out but the screen is still black and I could feel the camera and just barely hear it making the noise it makes when the lens is coming out but it was already all the way out.

Have a Finepix Digital Camera. It was given as a gift several years ago. The book doesn't explain how to make my pictures full size when loaded on my computer.

I have a sharp video camera model VL-AH30 This is a hi8 unit. When I play back the tapes there is alot of tracking problems that makes some of the tape nearly unatchable. Is this a problem with the mini VCR heads? Will a cleaning help? I can not find a way to adjust tracking like on a regular VCR. I am transfering it onto my computer and would like to find a way to eliminate as much of this tracking as possible. Thanks

Software problem The Casio EXZ75 makes you go through the setup menu every time you turn it on. There is no way to save the setup. You have to push the set button 5 times to get to the screen where you can take a picture. Casio says to send it back for a charge of up to $100 since it is 13 months old. Any ideas? or buy a new (not Casio) camera.

Erratic shutdown of Panasonic ag dvc7 camcorder due to dew sensor malfunction. Have tried the obvious solution with hair dryer. Can periodically resolve by removing/replacing battery or by smacking the case. Makes me think it is a loose connection, but have no idea where to look for connection. Any way to disable this dew sensor or repair without sending back to factory?

Based on vibration (smacking the case) sometimes resolving, it seems like you're on track with the problem being a loose wire or solder connection. Other than going in and fixing that, there isn't much that can be done. There's no setpoint or menu ... Digital Cameras

I just bought a kodak z950 and it seems i am having problems now with sending pics to other people or trying to upload so so others can see them on my space.. it seems like they are corrupt. they never finish uploading and when i send as a file it stops in the middle of transfer...it seems like this camera has stopped all of my ways to send pictures on line....like it s corrupted or something.

It would be better if you first downloaded your photos to your computer and then uploading them to myspace.If the resolution of your photo is very high its size will be large and depending on your net connection speed you ll have issues if the upload ... Kodak EasyShare C300 Digital Camera

Accidentally I dropped my Sony DSC S500 camera. Now the shutter is jammed. When i switch on, the lens ejects out and stops half way. While switching off, the lens doesn't come back to normal position, instead it stops in half way ejected position. From the LED display i could see a blurred image. I am able to see all the photos that i have taken so far, but am not able to take any new photos.

I was in the middle of shooting a wedding, when suddenly my camera said that it was 'busy' - it was taking a while to go back to normal, so I decided to shut the camera off and just turn it back on again (I didn't mind loosing the last image). When I turned the camera back on... all of the sudden the shutter kept going off extremely fast (without me pressing the shutter button). I turned the camera back off, but the shutter kept going off. I freaked out and too the battery out to make it stop.

Did you remove batteries for a couple of minutes, that is the first thing to do. ... Digital Cameras

The lens won't come all the way out- it makes clicking noises like it wants to and kind of bounces it but doesn't come out the rest of the way. If I push the zoom button over and gently twist, it will come out all the way. Once I turn the camera off and back on it gets stuck again. (I don't know for sure the model #- I don't have it with me right now but I got it about 3 years ago.)

Zoom my camera isnt an olympus FE - 230 digital camera, its a kodak M836, i can look at my pictures okay, but i cant take any, as when i turn it on to take a picture the lens goes out, and then back it and it switches off. it is nothing to do with the battery as i have charged it several times. - my dad thinks that it goes back in because there is some sand inside (as we recently went on a beach holiday) and that the sand is stopping the zoom from coming out all the way, so it goes back in, alth

The button that you press to make a photo came off the camera, and it won't depress to make a photo now. Is there a spring or something missing? If so, would a local camera shop be able to repair/replace it, or will I need to send it back to Sony? Thank you!
