What newer cards are reliable ? I lost 1/2 a shoot for the 3rd time this year. I am getting a bit paranoid because Lexar image rescue5 could not recover any of the files even after several attempts. While shooting I always randomly check on the LCD but then there is nothing on the card - how is that even possible ?
My Leica M 240 will intermittently lockup when EVF is in use with bracketing. Have to pull out battery and put back in in order to get it to recover. Until I do this, the red light on camera rear stays on. Anyone else encounter this problem? The problem is very intermittent. Sometimes I'll go a whole day with no problem. Other times it will happen over and over. It seems to only happen when the EVF is attached.
Hi! I have been looking solutions for following problems and seen that in previous years many m240 users have had some of the similar problems but in recently no one haven't much complained about these problems any more. 1) Some photos show magenta cast when I zoom in the preview. Seems to happen only when I shoot DNG. 2) Camera will lock up regularly (sometimes after taking 30 photos and sometimes after 100 photos) and only way to recover is to do power off/on. I have pined down that about minute or so before the crash, the LCD will show hourglass every time the SD card led is blinking, so basically every time I take a photo. I also want to note that when auto power off is set for example to 2 minutes, then I can just wait 2 minutes and camera will power off, after which I press the shutter to wake the camera up and proceed to take more photos. So for some users some lockups may happen even without the user knowing it, because camera will recover from them with auto power off. I have M262 with the latest firmware 126.96.36.199. I use 32GB and 64GB sandisk 95mb/s cards which I always format with SD Card Formatter after the use. I have also tried 32GB and 16GB sandisk 45mb/s cards but the outcome is the same. Battery level seems not to have any effect on this. Fully charged battery have same chance for lockup as under 20% one. My workflow for taking pictures is most part following: 1) Take the photo 2) use 3 or 5 second auto review 3) sometimes zoom in to confirm the focus 4) never turn the camera off. My local Leica shop says that Leica has always had these problems and sending it to Germany will probably not fix these issues. So is it normal?
