Exposure bracketing on Leica M-P (Type 240)


Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I have a question on exposure bracketing on Leica M-P (type 240). I've set the exposure bracketing to 3 frames, plus minus 0.5 EV, Auto. ISO is either auto or manual at various levels. When looking at the meta-data for the shots, the brackets invariably come in at plus minus 0.3 rather than 0.5 EV. It seems to work ok with plus minus 1 EV. Is this a bug or is there an explanation for this. I speculate that perhaps the shutter speed cannot vary finely enough to achieve plus minus 0.5 so the closest it gets to is 0.3. If that is the case then the setting should say plus minus 0.3 rather than 0.5. This was the case with firmware 2.0.1.7 as well as with 2.0.2.5

 

Thanks in advance for any explanation.

I assume that the shutter speeds in the EXIF show the half stop difference?

 

The EV "anomaly" may be due to the fact that the aperture is only ever estimated and may vary from shot to shot slightly.

 

Just guessing.

      Hello and greetings to everyone from a new member !
       
      My name is Andrea, 40 years old, and I write from Italy.
      Since yesterday I'm a new Leica user, as I had the chance to buy an almost unused Leica M-P (typ 240) , along with 50mm Summicron f/2 and an Elmar-M 24mm f/3.8 ASPH.
       
      Ideally I would have preferred a 28mm, but the deal was for the whole set, including the EVF2 Leica.
       
      I've been for a long time a Nikon shooter, and I now use a Sony A7rII. But since a long time, as I love shooting film with a Nikon FM3a , I wanted a more "slow" experience in digital. Leica was the best option...
      When a deal finally arrived...I got it !
       
      Hope to learn a lot about this wonderful camera, I'm already in love !
