  1. Good day, could someone inform what and how to make use of the 49-area metering system on a new D-Lux 109? I looked up on the instructions but there is not much detail explain of it...
  2. May I ask someone who know: There are three metering modes on the DL 109, for the middle one (Centre Weighted), I'd have two questions not sure about: 1. How big is this "Centre Weighted" area in relation to the photo framing area? 2. If this "Centre Weighted" metering area user changeable? (like you could change on the auto focusing area?)
  3. Hi all- Thanks for your response in advance. I bought a used M240 recently followed by a new MP 240. I am new to Leica and come from the Sony/Nikon world. so please excuse me if this question is stupid. I set both camera's to exact same firmware, same menu settings, same metering modes etc Below are my observations can you please validate if there is a issue 1. The LCD on MP240 looks less brighter and has a more warmer tone than M240 - Is this the case because of the Sapphire glass? 2. MP 240 under exposes compared to M 240? - same conditions, same lens, I tend to find MP 240 under exposing. is this common? 3. The B&W Film simulation images from MP 240 are a bit more vintagy looking than M240 or bit warmer than M240? Please see the attached image for the LCD issue (maybe not a issue). ignore the metering in the image thats just me playing around. I really appreciate your assistance in validating the above. Glad to be a part of this community. - Donny
  4. I am not sure if this is lack of my knowledge but in the setup I defined metering mode as follows: INFO summary displays: ... what suggests that I rather defined "Center-weighted" than "Spot". Any ideas?
  5. Having noticed that my (wonderful) new Vario tends to overexpose more often than I'm used to, I decided to test the camera's light meter using the Sunny/16 rule. Using a high quality 18 percent grey card in direct sunlight, I made a series of measurements that raise more questions than I myself can answer, so I'm hoping some of you may be able to help. The idea is that the camera, using aperture priority, should pick a shutter speed equal to the ISO value. Instead, with spot metering, the shutter speeds are double the expected value: ISO 100 : 1/200 ISO 200 : 1/400 ISO 400 : 1/800 etcetera With centre-weighted metering the results are different (though they should be the same, having taken care to fill the frame with the grey card): ISO 100 : 1/160 ISO 200 : 1/320 ISO 400 : 1/640 etcetera Now to make things even more complicated, I found that in manual mode, the on screen exposure meter reads zero at a third set of values: ISO 100 : 1/125 ISO 200 : 1/250 ISO 400 : 1/500 etcetera With this final test, there was no difference between spot and centre-weighted metering, which presents us with yet another riddle... Can anyone explain this? Or try to replicate these results with their Vario, just to rule out that I have a faulty item? Also, I'd welcome advice about adjusting exposure strategies in light (pun intended) of these irregularities. I use spot metering most of the time, and my thinking about exposure is largely in terms of Adams' Zones.
  6. In Menu>Camera, I have 3 options for Exposure Metering Mode, i.e. Advanced, Classic, Classic with LV disabled. In Set>Metering Mode, I have another 3 options, i.e. Spot Metering, Center-weighted Metering, Multi-field Metering. Because of shutter lag, I hate to use Advanced metering mode. So I chose Classic in Menu>Camera. Now, I am uncertain which mode I should pick in Set>Metering Mode. Suppose I pick Multi-field Metering for Set>Metering Mode, then will I be able to meter in Classic Metering mode leveraging the Multi-field metering algorithm, instead of Classic & Center-weighted? Or is Multi-field only allowed to be functioned as a sub-set of Advanced Metering mode only when set so in Menu>Camera? In addition, if I hit the LV button for live view shooting while my M 240 is set for Classic & Multi-field metering, does my camera change the metering mode automatically to Advanced & Multi-field as long as I remain in LV mode? And I don't have to re-set back to my preferred metering mode immediately after I finish the LV mode shooting, am I correct? Lastly, what is your preferred mode between Center-weighted and Multi-filed? Thanks in advance for your advice. Don
  7. I am off on a ski trip to Switzerland in a couple of weeks and am planning to take my MP with me and a load of film. I am reasonably new to film and the MP and would love some feedback on the following; 1. Exposure in snow conditions and particularly film selection for this. I would like to shoot E6 but am worried about its limitations to over or under exposure. Am I better shooting with something else? 2. I am expecting the MP will live up to the cold conditions without too many issues? 3. I have never travelled internationally with film - I assume carry-on X-ray machines are ok? Any feedback on any or all of the above would be very much appreciated.
  8. Hi New user of the X1. Are the metering mode icons correct? Page 77 of the manual shows item 2.1.22 a) as centre weighted with no dot in the centre as multi-field with a dot in the centre and c) as spot metering. © looks correct, but the other two would make more sense the other way around or is this a typo? Is the 'Evaluative' mode that others refer to? Any comments from users please? Thanks
  9. My M7 has developed a small fault. The exposure meter and lights in the viewfinder no longer switch themselves off after the shutter release has been left untouched for 15 seconds or so as they should. They seem to stay on indefinitely. And the viewfinder no longer shows the film speed for the first few seconds after switching the camera on. It goes straight to the exposure meter. The metering still seems to work fine. Has the heat and humidity got to the electronics, or is it just age and chance? This would be no problem but that I am away on a trip in Singapore and other places in the region -- with many photographs to take -- and have only the one camera with me (not counting the phone). I grandly thought all this business of having a back-up was so much faffing around and have not brought a spare. I should have brought the Mini Zoom along at the very least. By switching the camera off between shots it will be probably possible to keep the batteries working for quite a while, and it's no big deal if I go through a few sets of batteries in the next six weeks before returning to the UK. If not this may be the time I practice using only the two mechanical speeds -- 1/60 and 1/125 -- and guessing exposures -- sunny sixteen. And as a last resort the local camera shops seem to have an ample supply of replacement/extra kit at perfectly reasonable prices. Writing this, with the news from Japan hovering behind the next tab on my browser, I feel that I should not be writing this at all. It isn't one of life's bigger problems. But it would be interesting to know if anyone has had similar experiences with the M7. All the best, John

    Light metering

    Can anyone with an X1 in hand help with Q about the light metering? There's spot, centre weighted and 'intelligent', 'multiple' - what are these last two and how do they perform? Are there any visual displays of the metering area in the LCD display options? And can you fix the meter reading with a shutter half press?
  11. I took the plunge: sold a lot of my Canon DSLR-stuff and bought a as-good-as-new M8 demo (black). My experience with Epson's R-D1 brought me to the rangefinder-concept. Love the portability and optics. Now I'm playing around with my M8. Figuring out the way it meters light. Below some links to rather challenging subjects: black coal mud, concrete and piles of black earth. I metered on my hand and took the EV down with 1 2/3 or 1 1/3. Liked the result. But please tell me what you think. Hope your experience will get me learn better. Westpoort 1 Westpoort 2 Westpoort 3 All pics are taken with a CV 35 mm F1.4 Nokton Classic. Many thanks in advance for your effort. Wim P.S. photos can also be found on Flickr
