Who is using- user profile settings?

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Just wondering who of us have been using these settings.  I ask, as I had started to use early on and it seems the settings would change on power down, or  battery change.


Any comments as how you are using and if you had issues as well?

Used them from the beginning.   I've set three shooting profiles. One contains the smallest JPGs.  Another is B+W.   One is colour.    However, you do have to carefully set up and save each profile and then actually select one.  


I  find that the profiles are sticky.

I use them all the time but wish they were nameable like on the M. I have a normal, Street, Street + B&W


I also wish they were renameable. After all, the alpha-numerics are already there for wi-fi purposes.  Should be fairly straightforward to implement, should it not?  Come on Leica, we need a firmware update v. soon!

Wondering that no one else has had issues with settings changing in the profiles.  Makes me suspect something on my end, not sure what would be different.  I agree a name for each would be great.

      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?

      I've written an article with the best practice for setting up the Leica M10 and Leica M10-P as a quick starting point for new users. 
      It's based on the new possibilities with the last two Firmware updates.

      I recently bought a NOS TL. I'm still figuring out the best way to use it - but nevertheless, so far, it's hard not to like the camera. 
      One issue that I have with the TL does not seem to be normal however: when I remove the battery for charging, and the camera is without battery for eg one night, I loose all settings: date and time, and the settings in which I was working before I removed the battery. Saved profiles are still there. Just a problem with the internal battery, or… normal for a TL?

      What different User Profiles do you use on you Leica M10?
      So far I only use two:
      Norm: For general conditions (see attachment) Mono: For monochrome shooting For Mono I've made the following changes to the 'Norm' settings:
      File format: DNG + JPG Max ISO: 50,000 (I want that grain sometimes) JPG settings: Contrast, sharpness, Saturation: High Monochrome: On  
      I've attached a PDF of the settings I use. It was created by the legendary John Greengo. I think it's only fair to link to his course 'Leica M10 Fast Start' which I can highly recommend. For the record, I have no connection to this company nor do I get a referral payment.

      Always looking for the best way to have my Q pre-set, and then mess around from there. Rereading an early review of the Q, I found this discussion:
      which says:
      So, here's how most of us around the office chose to use the Q. Keep it in single-point Single-AF, and move your focus point around with the four-way controller (focus-and-recompose if you must). Utilize Auto ISO with a chosen minimum shutter speed, and shoot in aperture priority. Unless you use the shutter speed dial to override your Auto ISO shutter speed setting, use the rear control dial for exposure compensation. If you do override your minimum shutter speed, make sure your Fn button is assigned to exposure compensation, as that rear dial will change its function to controlling shutter speed in 1/3 stops. 
      personally, I like the FN set for white balance, but over the months of use I've been impressed about how the Q nails it with AWB and can be convinced to try what this reviewer recommends, since I do more often override shutter speed and then have to go into the menu for exposure compensation, which is a real pain.
      Or maybe set the thumbwheel to exposure compensation rather than auto?
      thanks for reading.
