Tutorial how to Load a Leica M3
Tutorial how to Load a Leica M3. I have created a video tutorial on how to load a Leica M series camera so it’s perfect every time. Everything with a Leica is dependent on lining up the film to the mechanics of the camera body. There are little tricks and tips in this video which will endure, if you follow them, that your film will be loaded correctly every time.
A great many shooters, early in their training, think that a rangefinder will be the answer to their prayers. Why you ask? Because a rangefinder helps you to see. your light in real time. However, when they get the beast home, they fumble. They aren’t honest with themselves about their inability to load the thing.
But don’t worry, if you are patient with yourself, you can learn how to load a Leica M series, removable spool and all, easy and instinctually. I can even do it in complete darkness because I know how a correctly loaded Leica feels. The sensation of the film matching up, the sprocket marks, the sounds it is supposed to make. If any one of these things is off, the film won’t advance properly. Then, sadness at the end of the day when the roll is rewound.
