Tips for M10-R file organization

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)


i’ve just got my first digital Leica, an M10R.

coming from a canon background im used to connecting my camera directly to my mac and having the eos utility automatically download and organize my photos into different folders sorted by date,

Obviously thats not the case with the Leica and i have to connect the sd card to my mac in which all the photos are stores in one folder that i have to manually create date stamped folders for on my hard drive.

is there any way (in camera or through an app) that i can do something similar to the canon eos utility with the leica sd card and automatically import all the photos on it into date stamped folders?

I do it pretty manually. Generally I will end up with a folder for an "event", whether that is a walk in the country, a concert or a fortnight's holiday. I generally use Lightroom for basic processing. Then depending on all sorts of things, I might:

1. Create the folder manually, copy photos from camera(s) into the folder, and import the folder into Lightroom . Or....

2. Create the folder and import the files directly from the camera card into it in LR. Or...

3. Create the folder in LR and import the files directly from the card into it all in one go.

Yes. Import in Bridge …..

After some helpful advice a year or two back on this forum, Bridge + Photoshop was what I settled on. Very intuitive, IMHO, at least it is once one’s learnt what a few symbols mean within Bridge to access things like “Photo Downloader”.  I used to use Apple iPhoto / Photos (as the viewer) and PS Elements (as the editor), but now find Bridge + Photoshop convenient within the monthly subscription. Within Photo Downloader, it also gives a simple way to convert camera raw files into DNGs as you import (not needed for Leica, clearly, but nice if one wants all DNGs only from the outset regardless of the camera brand).

      Dear all,
      I bought the "reporter edition" of M10-P about 5 months ago. And it constantly has freezing issue. For the past few weeks, it's just been way too often, like 1 out 2 days it would freeze. I always turn the EV on when I'm shooting, and before it's about to freeze, the EV looks like it's having dropped frames, pretty lagging and then it would freeze, so I have to take the battery out and restart the camera. And many times it just freezes after I turn the camera on, I don't even get to press the shutter.
      Yesterday, I went out shooting and it froze again, but this time, after I restarted the camera like I always did, I found that the screen got a dark horizontal line on the very top of it (please view the photo I uploaded). I checked the photos, it's usually without the line on them, unless the ISO is 4000 or higher, then I got part of the line (or banding?) on the left side.
      Is this normal? Should I send the camera in for a replacement of the CMOS or something?

      Hello everybody, question about S 007 vs M10R + 50mm APO.
      So I’ve had many Leica cameras and I’ve come down to loving the 006. I love everything about it but obviously I can’t shoot in low light situations. So I’m thinking about going either for the 007 or the M10R as I already have the 50mm APO. 
      Those of you you’ve had experience with both, which one would you recommend?
      Important things for me: image character  , dynamic range & colors. I know that the 007 doesn’t have a similar color palette to the 006 but I’m considering it as it might be a good option for low light situations.
      Thank you!
