Check out the new LFI 06/2015! China is at the heart of the current issue. With black and white images, Chinese photographer Jing Huang captures his everyday surroundings. A further two features are dedicated to panoramic views of China with the work of photographer HG Esch, who captures Chinese cityscapes with a Leica S attached to a drone, that is juxtaposed with images by Wulf-Diether of Castell-Rüdenhausen. Also included in the issue: the new Summilux-M 28 mm, winners of the Classic Cars Photo Contest, and a revisit of the historic Leica IIIf, introduced in 1950. Learn more here: http://bit.ly/1Udjsm7

Still sad about my Leica D-Lux 4. We love the pictures it makes but the lens does not go back onto the case since 3 years! Leica repaired it 5 times, paid 140 euro's, but still same problem over and over again. Now Leica says: no warranty any more on repairs (we spend time abroad, so returned my leica just now). They did not repair it and I have to pay full price for repairment that did not help. I thought Leica was an amazing brand that is strong... Is there nothing Leica can do for me? I've read a lot of forums were owners have same problem with the Leica D-lux 4.

Leica T Camera -- Cold Weather Issues

How cold does it get in Germany in the winter? The reason I ask has to do with a new camera I have been using. For several years I had a Leica X1 and Leica X2 as my trusty travel camera. They worked, and provided me with some of my best images while traveling. At times I did regret that they had a fixed 24 mm lens so was intrigued when the Leica T mirrorless camera was announced that allowed interchangeable lenses. The first two lenses were a  23 mm f/2 (which would be close to the 24 mm lenses on the X1 and X2) and a 18-56 mm lens. I wasn’t able to get the camera and lenses before my Semester at Sea Spring Enrichment Voyage and Summer Semester Voyage.

After I returned I did get a Leica T and the two lenses. I brought them along on my Hurtigurten Christmas voyage to Antarctica. Initially I planned to use the Leica T as my 2nd camera for travel image. My primary camera for the trip was a Nikon Df and 80-400 mm VRII lens for bird pictures. On the 2nd day of the voyage, the shutter on the Nikon Df failed, and the Leica T became my primary camera. The 18-56 mm lens (27-85 mm equivalent based on the sensor) wasn’t really what I wanted for the bird images – but I had to deal with it. 

The annoying issue with the Leica T camera to freeze in cold weather. When this happened, you had no control over any functions, including the shutter and the on/off switch. The rear monitor or EVF monitor remained on and would follow whatever you were pointing the camera at – and as a result drain the battery. I had set the camera to shut off after 1 minute, but when this happened it didn’t shut off. The only way to recover was to remove and reinstall the battery. The temperatures in the places we were visiting (Falkland Islands, South Georgia Islands, and the Northern Peninsula of Antarctica) at this time of the year (remember it is summer there now) never were below 30°F / -1°C. I’ve used many other digital cameras at temperatures well below this. The battery life wasn’t as long, but that was something I could deal with. 

When I got back from the Antarctic trip I sent a message to Leica Support in the US. This was their response. “My understanding is that 0°C is the lowest temperature within the operating range.  If by chance there was any wind chill factor at the time you were shooting that of course would have pushed the temperature even further away from ideal.  In a cold environment it is recommended to keep extra batteries in a warm place and swap them with the one in the camera periodically, minimize the length of time the camera is exposed as much as possible, and consider finding a way to insulate the camera somewhat while it is out.”

Did Leica really design a camera that can only work above 32°F / 0°C? I am curious if there are any other Leica T users out there that have used their cameras in really cold weather.
