Troubles with My Leica
I still love my Leica, but I have had my share of troubles, and have a new problem. Two years ago, I had the CCD replaced (they did it for free) as it suddenly went bad. It took a few months to have the new CCD replaced. Now, that new CCD is giving me problems. I thought it was just dust on my CCD, so I brought it into the shop to have it cleaned. The guy at the shop told me that the “spots” were under the protective cover of the CCD….Apparently, in hot humid environments (like Jakarta), the CCD gets small water spots under the protective covering….not really sure if I explained that right, but it is annoying as I have to send the camera back to Leica to get it repaired….arrrrrgh.
I took the photo below with my Leica, and had to use the spot removal tool about 100 times to get rid of all of those spots. I still get amazing files from that little M9, but those spots are really annoying….
