Subject: [Leica] The tripod socket on M6 TTL
From: "M V" <>

Hi folks,

As a new user of a Leica M6 TTL, I am a little baffled by the tripod socket 
being off to a side on the M6. I realize that most M6 users shoot handheld 
(as I did, on my recent trip to India, and the slides look awesome!) but I 
am used to an SLR + tripod, and would occasionaly like to use a tripod with 
the M6. Does the offset socket cause stabilty problems, especially with 
vertical compositions? I am planning to use a light weight tripod with a 
ball head.
