D-Lux 4 - Favorite function button mode?! Why?

Recommended Posts

What's your favorite settings for FN button (arrow down). In the custom mode do you use the same association for FN?


My FN settings is quick access to AF MODE. I like to experience a different focusing styles (faster, tracking, multiple etc.) and a quick acces is important to me.


To be easier for respondents I will recap the available option:

- REVIEW (default)

I have mine set to ISO because I like to be able to change the ISO easily...although I have found that in the 2 weeks since I have had my camera I don't seem to be changing the ISO very often.


Maybe I should think about changing it!

I first use it as ISO ... but just change back today for the REVIEW mode ... I access the ISO setting with the Q-MENU and it is so easy ... As I uise a 24 mm LEICA VF, and so the back lcd is very often off on my D-LUX, it is finally cool to access the REVIEW mode with that button than with the switch ...

I also use mine for the "review" function. It's nice to be able to customize it! I started out with it as my ISO button, but it didn't last long.

I used ISO, but I'll give AF a chance.

Capture One delivers more problems than the camera itself. Perhaps I should cancel the RAW-mode.

I have set the FN button to adjust White Balance, preset to Custom WB as the AutoWB get's it wrong most of the time.


Really? My Auto WB is just superb. Better than my Canons and better than my M8.

I was thinking the same about the D-LUX 4 Auto WB and my Canons !!!! The Leica is so cool I love it really.

      The NFC option does not appear in the network configuration.
      Attached screenshot of the manual, where it appears, and those of the menu of my setup, where not.
      Who knows what might be due?

      Where can one find the battery charge level?
      What's the best way to extend the battery life? 
      If I shoot DNG/JPG, where do the JPGs end up? I don’t see them when I import the files into Lightroom. Are they the ones transferred over to the Leica Photos? 
      If one shoots A for aperture, shutter speed, and focus, is it the same as Full Auto in Scene Mode?
      I notice the photos I take in Black and White turn to color when I import them into Lightroom. Importing the B&W photo into Leica Fotos shows it is B&W, which I assume is so that it can be shared. My question is: Are there specific Lightroom presets that show the Leica style?
      I occasionally get the red box with spinning circle. Why does it do that? I assume it’s writing to disk but I’ve had occasions where I haven’t taken a photo at all, so there’s nothing to “write to disk.”
      Can I use the Leica Q2 LCD panel to focus/shoot like my Canon 5D Mark IV? Maybe I’m wrong but I recall seeing a video of a Leica Q doing so. 
      Does changing the user profile also change what’s found on the favorites menu? 
      Is there any sort of logic for how to set up the FN versus the wheel button? I appreciate their usefulness but I find I can’t remember what’s where and I end up going back to the menu button. Any suggestions on how to set it up logically?

      I've written an article with the best practice for setting up the Leica M10 and Leica M10-P as a quick starting point for new users. 
      It's based on the new possibilities with the last two Firmware updates.

      I recently bought a NOS TL. I'm still figuring out the best way to use it - but nevertheless, so far, it's hard not to like the camera. 
      One issue that I have with the TL does not seem to be normal however: when I remove the battery for charging, and the camera is without battery for eg one night, I loose all settings: date and time, and the settings in which I was working before I removed the battery. Saved profiles are still there. Just a problem with the internal battery, or… normal for a TL?

      What different User Profiles do you use on you Leica M10?
      So far I only use two:
      Norm: For general conditions (see attachment) Mono: For monochrome shooting For Mono I've made the following changes to the 'Norm' settings:
      File format: DNG + JPG Max ISO: 50,000 (I want that grain sometimes) JPG settings: Contrast, sharpness, Saturation: High Monochrome: On  
      I've attached a PDF of the settings I use. It was created by the legendary John Greengo. I think it's only fair to link to his course 'Leica M10 Fast Start' which I can highly recommend. For the record, I have no connection to this company nor do I get a referral payment.
