  1. Just a service information: The front button of the M10 has 3 different functions: 1. Manually switch On/Off the focus enlargement when using LV or EVF 2. Setting the exposure compensation while simultaneously turning the back wheel (alternative of using the menu) 3. Setting long exposure times (8 sec … 4 min) not indicated on the shutter dial (pressing the front button while in Bulb gives a new set of long exposure times) BR Poul

  3. Most likely covers the multi connection plug for factory service
  4. Further two divergences between the LED-display and the LCD-screen when in aperture priority mode: LED will show 1.5" instead of 1" (therefore 1.5" applies for both 1" and 1.5"). LED will show 2 instead of 3 for ⅓ sec (therefore 2 applies for both ½ and ⅓ sec). So, out of many, many values 4 readings will deviate with half a stop. On my personal M10 all other shutter speed readings seems to correspond. I found another M10 in a local store that also was able to show 1/25 sec :-) But it really is strange to have two different readings at the same time ... Best regard
  5. Thanks Fedro I can confirm your figures. This is very important info because this means that the camera itself will not be defect. Showing 15-24-25-30-45-50-60 in the LED-display is not a big deal - whereas a defect camera would be a completely different story. It must be a bug - Let's be glad that it does not show all values between 4 minutes and 1/4000 sec. BR P
  6. After updating M10 to version 2.6.5.0 the shutter speed display can now show 1/25 sec (!) when looking through the viewfinder (OVF) - at the same time the LCD screen back on camera shows the common used 1/24 sec as also will be "stamped" on the picture when reviewing. Displaying 1/24 sec through the viewfinder will still be possible when the exposure is measured to be exactly 1/24 sec. I know that the camera calculates all possible shutter speeds - but to avoid confusion it normally should "round" (filter) the figure to a common used value before presentation - in this case 1/24 sec (although the factual shutter speed will be calculated as 1/25 sec). Perhaps a minor bug to be corrected in the next update . Best regards P
  7. Well Guys. It's all about "Circle of Confusion". (I've learned my lesson)
  8. Ahh, CoC means Circle of Confusion. I will study the link indicated in post #26 from pico. Poul
  9. Thanks to a.noctilux! Indeed I have read post #14 even before sending my question - and I also got the feeling that jaapv was trying to explain the background in his post. I'm sorry, I may be stupid. But as an explanation to the lens engravings, I simply don't understand the meaning of "instead of the traditional CoC on film of 0.033, it is better to assume 0.02 for a sensor". BR Poul
  10. Apropos Zone Focusing and Hyperfocal Distance. Please allow me a fundamental question: Regarding the engravings on the lenses, what is the definition of "being in focus" or "being sharp enough"? Only a properly focused lens would make a specific subject perfectly sharp. Changing the aperture will of course change the Depth of Field (DoF) - but what is the theory behind the lens engravings? Example: If the figures on a specific lens indicate that all subjects in the field from 3 mtr to 6 mtr will be IN "focus" - and subjects outside this field will be OUT of "focus", then this reading must be based on some form of definition as only subjects in the exact focal plane will be perfectly focused. Question: What kind of calculations / theory is used to define the engravings on the lenses? BR Poul
  11. Correct: it is not the cards Poul
  12. I do agree about backward compatibility. Only wanted to comment on this because some users seems to have issues while others not - despite of using exactly the same cards. Poul
  13. Briefly expressed: Some photographers using a specific card in a specific camera potentially could operate their systems with a different protocol compared to other photographers using the exact same equipment. Will this lead to performance differences - or even issues? Poul
  14. I do respect the knowledge and experience in this forum. However, this issue is a bit frustrating - and I think it needs to be cleared, because: 1. According to SanDisk official homepage the SD-cards are factory formatted with the following standards: SD 2GB or lower FAT16 SDHC 4GB to 32 GB FAT32 SDXC 64GB or higher exFAT "All cards come pre-formatted and do not need to be formatted out of the box" (SanDisk) 2. The "SD Formatter 4.0" (SD Association) default will format a 32GB SDHC in FAT32. No options are given - it will not be possible to format this card to an alternative protocol with this tool "SD Formatter 4.0" 3. The M10 will change a 32GB SDHC from FAT32 to exFAT when re-formatted directly in camera I suppose that the camera very well knows what is the best format to use :-) And I do respect the experience claiming that a M-camera prefers storage formatted in exFAT. According to the M's Manual: "If the memory card has been formatted in another device, such as a computer, you should reformat it in the camera". But don't we have a discrepancy when the "official" format tool mandatory use a different protocol - and also the big manufacturers use a different protocol as a default - compared to Leica? Poul
