Mine acts like that when I try to range toward the sun on bright days. That can really start to limit it.

Re: Leica 1600B

That's how I feel when I can only get 3000 out of my terrapin :
Seriously this may not apply but how are you holding it. I had a 1600 and I found if I rested on my pack or tripod I could get to there pretty far but off hand unsupported not nearly as far.

Took me awhile to realize I do my best shooting prone why not range that way as well

Re: Leica 1600B

We'll today it's overcast and the best I can get out of it is 1275 just a bit disappointing when I watch people on youtube get out to 1800 on youtube and ya I tried putting it on my tripod and that's how I got it to 1275 but in the sun I'm lucky to get 1000! I'll be sending this junk back and getting something else
