Possible to use rear dial for exp comp when in Aperture priority?

Recommended Posts

No, not at the present time. 


I believe some have already added this request to the SL firmware wish list. No one outside of Leica engineering knows for sure whether it's possible with the SL hardware, of course. 


Personally, I prefer the top dial for EV compensation and wish the other option were available ... to move it to the top dial in Shutter priority mode with native lenses. With my Olympus E-M1, I can define which dial does what in each exposure mode.

      Hey Folks, 
      while I work with M and Auto ISO , I use the exposure compensation to control the brightness of the scene. 
      i programmed one of the front buttons to enter the mode. 
      now in this mode to me it would be convenient if both wheels would change the values. 
      not only the back wheel . 
      if I enter the magnification mode for focusing , both wheels react ! 
      what do you think? 
      would it bother you if both wheels control the EV? 
      do you get confused by this behavior? 
      who would like to change the behavior? 
      hope you did a good picture today …. 
      have a nice Sunday ….

      I've noticed when using exposure compensation with the M10, often when i review photograph I've just taken on the screen, the exposure compensation information reads back incorrectly. If set at zero compensation (doesn't matter if it's set via the menu or with the thumb wheel), the screen will show it correctly.  If I set the exposure compensation to -0.3 or -0.7 (or +0.3, etc.), it will occasionally read correctly when I review the image, but most often it shows up on the screen as -3.0. Is anyone else experiencing this oddness? I am using the latest firmware, fwiw. I have searched the forum for any notes on this, but if I have missed something from others about this issue, apologies in advance.

      Hi All,
      Is it possible to have direct access to exposure compensation (via rear click wheel) on a Leica SL when it is in Auto-ISO and in Manual mode with an M lens?
        I have the 2.1 firmware installed, and best I can figure out is that I need to press any one of the configurable buttons to bring up the exposure compensation dialog, and only then I can use the back click wheel to do the exposure compensation. For speedy operation I would like to go directly to the rear click wheel. Anyone know a way?    I'm guessing the two-press way is designed to prevent accidentally changing the exposure compensation, but sometimes one needs a fast way to adjust the exposure and besides I find the click wheel is rather well protected from accidental shifting.   When in auto-ISO, in manual mode and with an M lens it would seem the rear click wheel is neutralized?      Thanks for any advice...   NaHar

      I like to have a -1/3 exposure compensation dialed in at all times. I find that it now displays "-0.3" in the viewfinder before it will show the shutter speed when in aperture priority or showing the metering arrows when in manual exposure mode. I absolutely hate this. I want to immediately see the meter reading, not my exposure compensation setting. How do I make it so that it doesn't display the exposure compensation in the viewfinder?

      the m9 was reported to iso-less, as no matter in what iso an image was shot, a repair could be made in photoshop without degradation of the image. is this true for the M as well?
