Capture Assistants Not Working | Leica CL

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hey gang - wondering if anyone else out there is having the same issue I am presently facing in trying to enable some camera's capture assistance features on my Leica CL?

I'm presently using Camera Firmware Version 2.2. Here's the items within the Capture Assistants section of the menu and a rundown of the functionality I 'have/don't have' for each:

  • Grid Setup - Working, no issues here.
  • Clipping - Does not display.
  • Horizon - Does not display (this is the function that I'd really like to enable)
  • Histogram - Does not display.

Troubleshooting so far:

  • Disabled then Enabled (and vice-versa) for each function. No dice, doesn't make a difference for the display of Clipping, Horizon, or Histogram. Only the Grid Setup functions as it should.
  • I've looked for items elsewhere in the menu that might correspond to the functions that I can't get to work. Maybe something is cancelling out their functionality? Can't see anything though that might be the culprit?

Is anyone else out there having this problem? This has only arisen after I updated to the most recent firmware (2.2). I can't quite remember though if the missing horizon/level gauge immediately went away directly after the firmware's installation.

Did you try to press the directional pad's central button?

Well, that did the trick!

In past troubleshooting, I'd pushed all the directional arrows outside of that central button, but it looks like I failed to do the obvious. Thanks for pointing that out!

I'm glad it was a bone-headed error on my part versus a more serious issue with the camera. 😅

I was about to suggest that you are unlikely to find a 'gang' on this forum, but would be unlucky not to find an expert or two. A stalwart has come to your rescue.I am pleased to see. We are lucky to have a wide body of experience located worldwide. Welcome William.

Thanks very much David! I've certainly noticed that this group (not gang 😄) has a vast wealth of knowledge and experience. Thanks for allowing me to pick your brains every now and then! Cheers!

      After lots of discussion about future of APS-C. How many of you think that the real reason for CL/TL being held back is the lack of native lenses ? 
       
      A little history :
      - 2014 : T was released with two lenses : 18-56mm f/3.5-5.6 & 23mm f/2.0
      - 2015 : Then two more with 11-23mm f/3.5-4.5 & 55-135mm f/3.5-4.5
      - 2016 : Leica release the only two made in Germany TL lenses : 35mm f/1.4 & macro 60mm f/2.8
      - 2017 : CL was released with 18mm f/2.8 pancake lens  
      Leica were on a good track, 1 or 2 TL lenses per year. But after 2017 ? Nothing happened at all ! 
      We should have 10 to 14 lenses by now. Not 7. 
       
      Only 1 fast lens. Only a trinity of slow zoom lenses. Only 2 compact prime lenses.
      None of them have OIS. None of the bodies have IBIS. 
      No portrait lens, aka equivalent to fast 85/90mm or 70-200mm f/2.8. 
      No fast wide angle. ex : equivalent to fast 18/21mm. 
      These lens cannot be replaced with any adapted M and R lenses. 
       
      So what’s the problem here ? Leica may think that APS-C line do not sell well enough. So they stop releasing new lenses  ? It is a kind a vicious cercle. But  no new lens = death of the system. 
      Just like they left the S line died by releasing only bare minimum body upgrade and no new lenses for half a decade. 
       
      So what do you think about this situation ?

      My [almost] two year old Tekiac Stealthcover’s tripod mounts popped out - yes, both of them. And the plastic started cracking around the tripod mounts, to boot.
      Thinking it’s time to update it anyway I went to LFI (where I first got it from) but lo and behold, it’s not there anymore.
      A quick visit to the Tekiac website and wouldn’t ya know it, it’s no longer in production.
      Does anyone have a suggestion for an alternative? Really only need it to do the three things the Stealthcover did well:
      Have a grip Cover the logo Have a tripod mount Bonus points if it comes in black 🤟
      Thanks!

      Recently bought CL as I used leicas many years ago as a prof photographer - now retired.
      Is it possible to program  CL to only use "M" setting or to remain on the "M" setting when manually put on ?
      (I want to control my exposure myself and not be dictated to by the camera.)
      What "off camera" flash should I buy for the CL. Thinking of second hand Metz or new Nissin but which hot shoe to use ???
      Thanks
