Black anodized hot shoe, M6TTL
I have now replaced my M6 classic with two M6TTL bodies. The one thing I love about the M6 classic is the black anodized hot shoe.
I figure it would be pretty easy to remove the hot shoe as it is with any camera so I am willing to send them out to a proper place to have them anodized black.
Any ideas on this? Where to send them? I can't believe that Leica put chrome hot shoes on all there M bodies from the TTL out as they stick out like sore thumbs, the classic ones hold up fine as far as brassing.
Is it a conductivity reason?
I know this sounds really Leicaphile and superficial, but believe me, it is truly about keeping the cameras low key. The classic is awesome for this reason as you can hardly see it in the dark.
Swapping them out would be a no brainer if the serial number were not on them.
