Proud of myself - I managed to replicate the M8 green line
and this is why
Good on you Bill...see what a throbbing foot and generous lashings of Codeine can do for you! Now onto the white orbs of the X10
I had no idea there was such an issue with the M8. Looks like something the green lantern would do!
it happens in natural light as well - it is well known but only happens now and again - only the second time since I bought the camera - two years ago - I think
you want to get a Sigma DP, Bill, then you can have green pictures all the time
...or get yourself the original DP1. Then you can have this, and as a bonus for early adopters, a free set of meshed red orbs whenever you point the lens at light...
No no mark, you can have red orbs with a DP2s, I promise you ...
You guys are a riot!
I've never had this anomaly on a Leica. I think bright/stray light that hits the calibration portion of the CCD causes the problem? I read that somewhere.
I have a similar thing happenning on my Leica but only in some very low light high ISO shots and it's not a coloured line but more a straight dark line.
the black line, (sorry I mean't red line), - that's a different issue
ah in that case I haven't seen the green line yet on my Leica.
I do not think that the more wealthier members of the Leica Society, (i.e. those with M9s and Summilux), have these "optional" factory fitted extras
and maybe your M8 was not fitted with these options
Maybe the wealthier members of the Leica society get beautiful bright golden sun-flare-like lines in their photos.
The rest of us get cheap gangrene green, rashy red, and darker-than-the-depths-of-hell dark lines instead.
but surely you have the "coffee cup" stain on your LCD - that's a "must have" - mine appeared after 6 months and up to that time I really felt left out
Whoever hand-assembled your M8 that day at Solms must've been feeling particularly generous with the gifts.
That's mad Bill, did you manage to get rid of it? I recall reading something about this a while ago.
