Leica T write speed? (searching for best SDXC memory card)

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

as a proud new owner of a Leica T to complement my film M6, I'm searching around for the best memory card that the Leica T can take full advantage of. 

i'm always interested in the latest and greatest but it doesn't make much sense if the limiting factor is the camera


it seems new cards are released frequently, with the most recent spec being Class 10 and UHS-3 classification


has anyone done a test on the write speeds of the Leica T? i've done some google and forum searches but cannot find an answer


been shopping for cards and have concluded I want a SanDisk extreme pro card.  now I'm trying to figure out if we'd be able to notice a difference using a UHS-1 vs. UHS-3 card with the Leica T

      Hi There,
      I just got my SL2 today, very excited to be back with Leica after a 2 year break.
      I have a 128gb Lexar UHS-ii 1000x 150 MB/s, a card I had around and was hoping was enough for the SL2. writing takes a couple of seconds but when I press the Play button, the red light stay up for over 30-60 seconds and I can't do anything with the camera.
      Is my card faulty or is it camera settings I need to change? Your suggestions are greatly appreciated.
      (I don't have another card at the moment o test with)

      Just wondering what you all use for storage capacity for your SL2s? I have mostly 32GB cards that I use for my CL, but just picked up two 64GB UHS II 300MB/sec cards.
      I might want to pick-up a couple more.
      Should I get 64GB or 128GB? I shoot in full res DNG+JPEG and backup from one card to the next, so, storage-wise, in actuality, I'm only using one card.
      Thanks, Brad

      Took my Leica S2 out in London yesterday to see how it performed out of the studio. Took a total of about 50 shots in groups of a dozen or so in 3 locations.
      Apon my return I discovered that instead of my usual CF AND SD cards I only had the SD card in the camera. Strangely the S2 only saved 8 images (all DNG) to the SD. A single image from the first location. 7 from the second and none at all from the last location.
      This has never happened before. The battery was fully charged and didn't require changing during the day. The SD card has plenty of space on it. BUT the S2 was set to save in parallel and I've never not had both CF and SD in the camera together AND The camera was set to save DNG only.
      I'm trying to reproduce the same issue now. Seems that there's maybe an issue with having the camera set to parallel saving when DNG only is selected and there's only an SD card present.
      Can anyone confirm that for me? Or could this be something more serious?

      I am very pleased to say that my M9 returned home today after being with Leica since September for the removal of an SD card label (Fuji 16gb card) jammed in the shutter, and for a sensor clean and service. It came as a surprise as they had bot notified me it was on its way, but they appear to have done a great job, and sent it back in its own box by UPS.
      Now to tackle Fuji about the SD card, who seemed to be pretty disinterested when I spoke to them on phone.

      I've seen this with the other Leica cameras i have as well, and it's the same with my new M10.
      How do i force my M10 to start image numbering from 0 and not continue from the number that last was written to the card (even though it came from another Leica)?
