    Leica An update on my rangefinder

    as is, with what I believe needs to be is a shutter curtain reattached, would it sell on here for say $600 with everything included

    Leica An update on my rangefinder

    i think one curtain is off and not working at all.and from what I've seen of the m4 2, it looks like my front curtain is not working at all and it's not in sight and the one curtain coming from the right side of the camera as looking at it from the back is the one moving as I cock it.which I...

    Leica An update on my rangefinder

    I am taking to him next month,$25 bench fee plus the $95 is still worth it to me and he may have the parts there to fix it since he has the same model.Probably,if thats the case,reattach the curtain or if its damaged,replace it which will be Im guessing about $200.

    Leica An update on my rangefinder

    oh believe me I have no intentions of touching this camera as I know my limitations. with a 7 to 10 day turnaround its worth taking it to him which is by appointment only.as far as the curtains are concerned he said they moved back at the same time and since I only seen one channel for a curtain...

    Leica An update on my rangefinder

    Leica An update on my rangefinder

    the lenses have no issue at all and the shutter curtain is intact just sticking. I only see the one shutter curtain pull back from left to right looking at the back of the camera. looking at a diagram it seems like there's a smaller one that's wrapped up around the drum on the right side, I...

    Leica An update on my rangefinder

    as far as the rest of the camera the lever for the frame lines is Snappy and the frame lines themselves are bright along with the rangefinder patch. a few specs as to be expected but no separation of the glass, nothing a Q-tip,some alcohol ,and some air would fix.

    Leica An update on my rangefinder

    and I know everyone here has more experience than me so don't believe that it's not being wasted. exactly how are two Shredder curtains supposed to look like on this body? I can see the one going from left to right looking at the front of the camera but that's all I can see, is there another...

    Leica An update on my rangefinder

    and I read where he done really good work, but from my understanding there are two shutter curtains and only see one or am I missing something? ..I definitely want to start using a rangefinder and let my Olympus om-1 rest for a while

    Leica An update on my rangefinder

    as I just realized this counter is different than on my Olympus, it actually sets two or three frames before zero and goes another Direction. so least that's taken care of.
