Question about Leica C1 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

Open Question

LEICA C1 Leica AF C-!. Yes, I know it's not really a Leica, BUT........... On inserting film the film symbol comes on as does 0. Then 0 flashes, but the film is correctly inserted. NO battery symbol shows. Does that mean battery is OK or exhausted on this camera? Any help appreciated. Thanks, Richard

if you check the operation for spliting to a photo tube. PG 49 you can see the procedure for using a camera (there is a control pin on the side of the scope (shown on pg 49) which you have to operate to switch to the camera output... you should then be able to take your photos :) http://www.vashaw.com/assets/84/84original.pdf

SOURCE: Loss of function

Whilst it is still under warranty you must return it to the seller.
That is your first move - it is their responsibility.
The second is to contact the makers support site and tell them.

Bear in mind price /value not withstanding small electronic devices are replaced not repaired.

I don't have a C1, but in all probability it's the EV (exposure value) compensation adjustment, and should be variable between about +2 and -2. Usually the middle/zero/auto/normal (whatever they call it) setting is fine, but sometimes you want to overrule your automatic exposure settings, which are intended for an average-brightness scene. For example, a photo of a dazzling white snow-covered field will probably come out a soft, easy-on-the-eyes light gray unless you kick up the exposure a notch or two. Try taking your camera to an unusually bright/dim location (a beach, inside an old church) and take the same shot five times, with EVs from -2 through 0 to +2. Then look at the resulting photos and decide whether the effects are pleasing/useful or not (warning--sometimes automatic photo processors will try to reset the picture to average when they print the photo, so you may still end up with minimal differences in the shots). A good beginner-level explanation of EV compensation is at <http://www.imaging-resource.com/ARTS/EVCOMP/EVCOMP.HTM>.

Good luck!

Thanks for the response! I actually sent my camera in a month ago and they promised to fix it for free...although it's a 4 month turn-around time. Still, better than buying a new camera!

SOURCE: leica m2 film advance lever is stuck

mandie22,
on this model two strokes are needed to fully advance the film and to set the counter to the next #,
so advance the lever, bring it back and advance again.

I have a Leica Digilux, but could not fine it anywhere on tghe dealer spots. I need a memory card for it and its difficult to get locally. The size is larger than the regular cameras.


Amazon could be a help:

It may depend on what your exact camera model is. You have only stated Leica Digilux.
There is the Leica Digilux 1, Leica Digilux 2, Leica Digilux 3, Leica Digilux 4, and the Leica Digilux 5. Most seem to take the SD HC (the SD card may work as well) card:

If your camera is a Leica Digilux 1, then the cards it can take are: Secure Digital Card and Multi Media Card
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leica_Digilux_1

If you have an earlier camera, then it could take some other kind such as the Compact Flash Card, although I did not find such a note anywhere.

How do you load film into a Leica111a


Leica IIIc was made for many years. the bottom of the camera comes off by twisting the flip style finger shackle. The film take up spool must be removed to attach the film to it. pull the film out at the same whidth of the camera and insert. It seems like a tetious task although owning a Leica makes it well worth it

hi,
your camera needs cleaning of lens and lens shutter; because some time dust particles gose inside and effect the alignment of lens and cause camera not working.

please give me good rating if the solution works
