Love M10 Colors but hate behavior. !!  I really love how the camera render colors but don’t like how it has behaved. After 30 minutes continuous hooting, the M10 body temperature was very high and shooting on continuous mode start frozen the camera (this remind me the old days with the M240 not solved after 2-3 firmware updates). Only option to get camera back was to remove the battery .. through the Cirque performance event, at least 6 times I had to remove the battery. Setup was Continuous mode, DNG+JPG and LV only on EVF no display pictures. Anyone experiencing same problems ?

[...] it is about the M10. After 30 minutes continuous hooting, the M10 body temperature was very high and shooting on continuous mode start frozen the camera

 

Cure: Don't do that. Get some version of Nikon for that kind of stuff.

What the heck were you shooting to require such haste?

Funny, but I just ran an SD speed test on a SanDisk Extreme Pro 95MB/second on my 16 year-old Macintosh Air. Damn, is this computer's SD slot crippled? 14MB/second is all I could get - from a computer, and I should expect more from my Leica? YES!

Gotta update something soon.

Before someone tell a joke that I confused the M10 with my Nikon D3, continuous mean that the camera was on (w/o turning off) for ~ 4 ½ hours , take total of 700 pictures with Drive mode as “continuous” but does not mean that my finger was left forgotten shooting continuously. Total of batteries used was one and half.

After first hour on – the camera body temperature was very high and everything start to froze. So I thing that when the camera reach certain temperature, either the software hold some components on or the tolerance for high temperatures is low...

And yes I always format the SD Card with SDformatter.

Did you have live view on continuously? Or the external viewfinder? 

 

Edit: re-read now clear...

 

Live-view is the culprit... if ambient temperature is high live-view can make the camera overheat...

 

If ambient temperature wasn't high, it's really bad of the Leica to overheat, means too little heat dissipation.

I will never have such an issue. I use my M for M style photography, which is shooting consciously, not to be confused with continuously.

They may even have been aware at Leica that the M and M10 have their boundaries here and may have chosen deliberately not to deliver for customers who want to shoot random and throw away at home what didn't work out

The "continuous" mode should be called "conscious" then. Would fit well with Das Wesentliche

.

Hard to find the boundaries you're referring to in the M10 specs though if i may object.

 I used continuous shooting mode, when I was testing SD cards. I felt that the camera is a bit warmer, but I had no problem with the M10. Maybe faster SD card will be the solution. Faster images writing will cause the processor to turn off or stand by earlier.

There is a bug with continuous and EVF:

I wonder if this issue is related? Hopefully it will be addressed in the next FW update.

 

Are you shooting DNG only?

      Hi everyone,
      I'll be moving away from my 12 year old Canon body and wanted a camera to use everyday. Given this requirement, I was keen on checking out the M10 with a 35 summicron. I recently tried this setup at a Leica store and really liked the compact RF setup. As an everyday camera, size/weight is definitely really important and this is one area the M system shines. However, I can't quite get over the fact that the skill set of the M is a little limited. A mirrorless camera will allow me to also dabble in the limited landscape/wildlife stuff I do whenever I travel. The SL2 S seems to be a camera which can do most things pretty well though it may not be the best as a camera to use during general day to day stuff. In the future (say in 1-3 years), I see myself having an M and a mirrorless due to their vastly different abilities but right now, I need to think about where to start. I think that a practical approach would be to start with a SL2 S and use an M 35 summicron with it. This would not be too large a setup and the SL system would allow me to use some other lenses for landscape or wildlife as the need arises. I've heard that the BSI sensor on the SL2 S is also really good and it would really excel in many scenarios. In a while (maybe when the M11 launches?), I could potentially get an M body and thereby have the best of both worlds. But as it stands today, I need to decide between the M10 + 35 summicron vs SL2 S + M 35 summicron and would love to hear your thoughts (both options are around 8k-9k USD). Any other suggestions are also welcome.
      I haven't used the SL2 S but how does it behave as an EDC with small M glass? Even if the size isn't too much more, does the extra weight (930 gms vs 660 gms for the M10) pose challenges? Is the M10 sensor dated now and am I better off waiting for a bit?
      Please let me know what you think!
      Cheers!

      I started with Leica m9 and fell in love with the manual focus, small and discrete of a Leica range finder. However, I have a poor eye sight and always wear glasses. Tried diopter but not really a solution.
      Then I got the m10 along with the evf. Although the evf doesn’t give the same rangefinder experience, I find it easier to focus with evf and magnifying than ovf, especially when shooting at low light or complex subject.
       
      In terms of lenses, I have the following:
      35mm sim micron 7 elements 
      noctilux 50 1.0 v3
      summilux 50 1.4 asph
      summicron 90 2 apo asph
      With my poor eyesight, the only lens I’m comfortable with while using the ovf is the 50 1.4asph.
      I cannot fully see the 35mm frame line, and the 90mm is like a sniper scope.
      Recently a friend asked me if I want to switch my m10 with his sl2s in addition with some cash. I’m not considering any sl lenses in the near future, so probably just using a adapter along with my m lenses.

      however,  I’m not really sure if the better electronic system and better evf will justify the additional weight and bulky body of a sl?
      any kind of input is appreciated!
      thanks

      I purchased this new just a year ago. Barely used. I use my R lenses on an SL, so this is an unnecessary accessory for me.  Sale includes:
      Visoflex 020 base plate Leica nylon pouch box, instructions Lovely leather Art di Mano case (retails for $129 at Leica Store Miami) Shipping is at your expense and must be insured. Import duties at your expense.  Item ships from Seattle, USA.
      High resolution pictures (and more than the 5 permitted here) are here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1d-te2fFJBZD0tXBS2xf5myb7zlmEFd84?usp=sharing.
      Thanks.

      Has anyone else had any problems connecting the GPS to the M10 Monochrom?  Most of the time, I see in the rear screen that the GPS icon has an "x" through it...obviously not connected.
      I have the Visoflex connected to the camera and the GPS turned on in the menu. 
      I realize there are areas that pose a problem for GPS connections, but I have tried various types of environments.
      Am I missing something?  I've only had it connect sporadically over the past few weeks. 
      Thanks.
