M10- FW Requests/Bug Reports


Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Post your FW Requests or report Bugs here. (I'll keep Post #1 updated with all the requests)

Current Version: 1.3.4.0

List updated: 2/22/17

 

 

[bUG FIXES]

 

-Auto review-hold issue

When "HOLD" is selected in Auto Review the image remains until you touch the shutter a second time. On the M240 and M9, this functioned correctly and the image remained only while "holding" the shutter release down. The implementation on the M requires a 2nd step. Is there a reason for this change? Is this a bug or by design?  Regardless it needs to be fixed.

 

-SDXC Card Compatibility  issue

Users are reporting several cards are not functioning (posts #44),

-Auto brightness issues

The auto brightness for the frame lines is erratic...jumping rapidly from bright to dim in mixed lighting. This also occurs occasionally with LCD brightness.

 

-Continuous mode + EVF

Fixed with firmware update v1.7.4.0

-Date/time issue

Some users are reporting that date/time does not stick and images have the wrong data.

 

-Profiles and Leica R-M Adapter

When the Leica R-M adapter is installed, Profiles will no longer load.

- Bring back the Aperture info into EXIF

For those who don't read French the following comment by Stefan Daniel might be interesting:   "Mr. Daniel goes on to say: '...Regarding the electronic shutter, it is not a patent issue, since it is a technology we have mastered over the SL. If there is none, it is just because of a lack of time, we absolutely wanted to launch the M10 early 2017. But it is not excluded that a future firmware update will add the electronic shutter if we feel a strong demand.' (see http://www.lesnumeriques.com/a

Addition of a silent shutter would definitely move me to replace my M-240 with the M10.  I regularly shoot live performances and ceremonies where the shutter sound is distracting and unappreciated by the audience.  There I can't use my Leicas and instead use my Nikon D4 which has a silent mode that utilizes an electronic shutter.  In that mode I have to occasionally chimp to verify that I am, in fact, capturing images.  An M10 with silent shutter would allow me to use the rangefinder for focus a

Is Focus Assist restricted to LV monitor or do you see those reflected in the viewfinder? I really love the fact that the USB cable is gone and it has no video, then you have at one's fingertips ISO, F-stop, and shutter speed. M10 is genius at work.

I actually use this on my SL and I don't find it distracts me from greating great pictures. In some instances I can agree that it be distracting, in others I find it a boon. Of course I wear glasses so my eyes are not the best, but I am glad to see an M with Focus Assist.

The M10 appears to generate its raw file .DNG output in the same (newer) format DNG1.4 that the SL uses.  This suggests that we could now get the best of both worlds.  The M10 carries forward the file labelling options that the M240 has offered -- I'd like to see that offered on the SL.  The SL has a broken system, creating a new folder and a gap in the labelling every 999 shots, and less ability to give files from different cameras unique names.  The SL's firmware team has incorporated corrections for distortion and lateral chromatic aberration for many R and M lenses, but they do not appear to be present in the M10's firmware.  Why not use them?  Adobe LightRoom does appear to apply a correction (per Sean Reid), but that doesn't help those who use other software to develop their raw files.  These corrections give straighter lines and sharper edges for wide angle lenses.

are you referring to the focus peaking?

If so, Im not suggesting this be eliminated...after all it can be turned off. The implementation in the M is drastically different from the SL or any previous Leica. Unless my camera has an issue (which I doubt), the M focus peaking is adding too many highlights on the image and many appear random. I need to test it further.

I'm lost. What USB was on the M240? There is a databus behind the baseplate, but that could not get in your way as it was hidden.

What would be the advantage of uncompressed DNG ?

 

My M240 allows me to choose. Its not about which is better. Its really just about having a personal preference needlessly removed. The M purports to be a tool for purists. I am a purist. Purists appreciate the ability to make decisions for themselves as to what type of file to capture and store. I hope that helps.

But if the choice is meaningless, what is the point?

From my tests, there is virtually no difference in lossless compressed DNG and uncompressed. I fought for uncompressed myself until I analyzed the differences...I stopped using uncompressed long ago. A complete waste of space and slows the camera down.

The point is that with choice you and I can both be happy. 

Now is that really that much to ask?

It looks as if there's the possibility of a silent shutter - and it's just a firmware issue!  Time to make some serious requests as I for one would value this enhancement of the M10/...

Giving a choice even when just one of the two options makes sense only gives rise to pointless debates as to which option is best: “If ‘compressed’ is clearly the best option, then why does Leica offer a choice?” The only way to put this to rest is to offer no choice.
