Shooting DNG + JPG in M9 not working

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hi,

 

I'm experiencing a problem with shooting DNG+JPG fine in the M9. I have done so successfully previously but the last couple of shots I did, the camera didn't save 2 files - one DNG and the second JPG. Instead it saved 2 JPGs.

 

Has anyone experienced this problem? any suggestions? I thought I would reset my settings but that doesn't mean it won't happen again - if at all it will help.

 

Thanks

 

-Danny

One possible source for this—and similar—kind of problem is the concept of the user profiles. You select a few settings, among them a particular user profile ... and in the instant you select the profile you effectively are cancelling all previous settings.

 

So maybe for the last two frames you switched to a user profile which includes a setting for shooting in JPEG-only format.

Hi 01af,

 

I have done tests without using the profiles I made and selecting from the "SET" menu the compression: "DNG+ JPG fine" does the same problem like the profile I made for it. Also, on the memory card there are 2 files for each shot I made and both are JPGs who have the same name.. so this is a problem for sure, not my own mixup.

I don’t think the file system would even allow two files to have the same name and extension. How are you reading from the card?

Have you tried a different card? Did you format it in the camera? Is your battery raring to go?

 

Silly questions, but there needs to be gas in the car.

both have same serial number, second one has parentheses with a number inside them (like if you would copy paste a file in same folder of original one)

I haven't tried a different card, don't have one. have tried it again after formatting the card and same problem occurred. also the battery is almost full.

 

seems to me like an issue with the camera not the card.

That is even more strange as the naming conventions for image files do not include the use of parentheses, so it is unlikely that the camera would create these names. Are you really seeing this on the card itself or after transferring the image files to the computer? And to repeat my first question: how are you reading the card?

Same problem here. What I realized is that in previous attempts to read the card I used an external card reader, now I try to read from the camera directly. The result now is that as described above I get two identical files one including brakets and a running index. Unfortunately I cannot test my hypothesis now whether it makes a difference between direct and indirect card reading. But you might want to test it.

 

Cheers, C.

Interesting! It turned out when you download your images via a card reader there are two file formats! That's the solution for the problem, however, I cannot explain it. Does anybody has more insights?

 

Best, C-

It seems to me that no one has as yet said

- whether the seemingly duplicate files appear as seen by the camera or by the computer

- whether the problem with the names and formats of the files is observed on the card itself or in the computer's file system after the transferral of the files

- the OS of the computer in question

- the software used to transfer the files from the camera

      Die Kamera befindet sich in einem gebrauchten Zustand und ist voll funktionsfähig. Sie war wurde 2015 bei Leica geprüft und gereinigt und in 2018 justiert und generalüberholt. Der Sensor und Lederüberzug sind ebenfalls neu, das Innenleben ist neuwertig. Optisch hat die Kamera Gebrauchspuren (leichte Kratzer, Farbabrieb) an der Ober- & Unterseite. Die Funktion ist aber einwandfrei!
      Die Kamera hat 27.300 Auslösungen.
      Im Kaufpreis enthalten sind Kamera, Kameragurt, Originalverpackung, Rechnung und Nachweise von Leica, 1x Original- und 3x Fremdakkus, zwei Ladegeräte.
      Der Versand erfolgt versichert mit DHL. PayPal ist möglich, allerdings trägt der Käufer die Gebühren.
      Bei Fragen gern mailen.

      The NFC option does not appear in the network configuration.
      Attached screenshot of the manual, where it appears, and those of the menu of my setup, where not.
      Who knows what might be due?

      Moin zusammen,
       
      ich habe seit ca. 4 Wochen das Problem, dass meine M2 manchmal den Film beim Spannen nicht richtig transportiert. 
      Die Bilder überlappen sich dann. Man merkt es beim Spannen, der Spannhebel springt dann.
      Der Fehler tritt meistens auf wenn der Zähler bereits bei 20 -25 Bildern steht. Ich habe das Gefühl, dass der Film zwischendurch die Spannung verliert oder über die Zähne rutscht. 
      Ist jemanden so etwas schon mal passiert oder kennt sogar jemand die Lösung?
      Im Moment elf ich mir in dem ich ein Bild mit Objektivdeckel mache wenn ich merke dass der Film nicht transportiert wurde. 
      Gerade bei teuren oder alten Schätzen verliere ich so meist 4-6 Bilder was ehrlich gesagt sehr schade ist.
      Gerade bei Filmen wie einen Fuji Superia Reala 100 oder Kodak Ektachrome 160t 
       
      Die kleine ist mein Ein und alles. 
      Bitte helft mir. 
       
      Mit freundlichen Grüßen 
       
      Nik

      I just firgure out that my Leica M10, the DNG files opened and exported to JPG by photoshop are always brighter and less contrast than the original JPG generated by M10 body.
      Is there something wrong?
      This is the jpg exported from dng.
