Leica M8 Software Timer Fix, Please

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Dear Leica,


Can you provide a firmware update for the Leica M8 with the following feature, please? It really would make me very happy.


“Because we’ve all missed a shot or two by flipping the shooting mode selector switch to self-timer by accident, Leica has come to the rescue with a 0 sec self-timer menu setting. In other words, it disables the self-timer and makes the shutter release behave like it would in single shot mode. Just another example of working to address user concerns.”


- David Farka, Leica M9 Review: Shooting in Wetzlar, Germany

      I just brought a D2 but I have a problem. When I turn on the D2 without the SD card all the function is good but once I inserted the SD card the shutter speed button is out of control. When I press down the shutter speed button it take around 10-15 seconds to shoot a photo and each 10-15 seconds it will automatically shoot another photo. And so wired when I look at the photo info in my PC it shows it is took by D3 not D2 but every time I reboot the camera it will allow me to press the shutter speed button again ... here is photo that I check my firmware in D2 ... anyone know how to fix it ?

      The Calonox View usb-c port supports charging and the transfer of data (pictures, videos).
      It works with usb-c to usb-a cables with chargers or computers which have an usb-a port.
      However, the port does not work with an usb-c to usb-c cable. I tested multiple cables and
      different chargers and computers. Always the same negative outcome.
      The Calonox View device comes with an strange usb-c to usb-a/video-chinch splitter cable.
      This cable works - but obviously for charging and data transfer per usb-a only.
      I can't find the reason for this unfortunate limitation - especially considering that
      usb-c shall replace usb-a ports.
      Has someone a solution?
      Also, I can't figure out how to update the Calonox View firmware - nor did I find any
      information regarding firmwares for this device on Leica's pages. In my case, the
      installed firmware is v5.0 but I'm wondering how Leica want's to maintain such a
      high-end device without software updates? Has anybody a solutionn to this problem?

      Das Calonox View har eine USB-C Schnittstelle zum Laden des Akkus als auch zum Übertragen von Daten (Fotos). Verwendet man eine USB-C zu USB-A Kabel funktioniert die Schnittstelle auch sowohl am Rechner als auch mit verschiedenen Ladegeräten. Verwendet man allerdings ein USB-C zu USB-C Kabel, funktioniert die Schnittstelle nicht. Ich habe sowohl verschiedene Kabel, als auch verschiedene Netzteile und Rechner ausprobiert. Die Firmware auf dem Calonox View ist 5.0. Ich habe bisher keine Möglichkeit gefunden, wie man die Firmware aktualisieren kann, noch habe ich bei Leica eine neuere Firmware gefunden - was nachvollziehbar ist, da das Gerät ja neu auf dem Markt ist. Hat jemand bzgl. der USB-C Schnittstelle ähnliche Erfahrungen gemacht? Weiss jemand wie man die Firmware aktualisieren kann?
      Ansonsten aber eine super Wärmebildkamera. Die Qualität ist wirklich Leica typisch super.

      The manual focus' Magnification setting (x3 x6) does not specifically appear in the main menu. Whereas it can be optioned indirectly by defining Magnification in the Fn or the thumbwheel programmable areas. Shortage of firmware memory or missed out accidently?
      [ whilst in the actual manual focus screen ]
      Easiest method is by clicking the virtual joystick centre button to toggle through x3 & x6 (EVF or LCD). Quite why the top right icon stuff shows or declares [SET] seems pointless. The virtual joystick arrow buttons also directly steer the particular view being magnified (EVF or LCD). Neat though necessarily quite slow.

      For unknown reason(s) an oddity is happening with indicated exposure times seen in viewfinder. After making an exposure, for the next two exposures there is no variation in indicated exposure time when panning about with camera. After the third exposure, the indication again varies properly as you pan about different scenes. Then repeats. As if there were an unwanted exposure lock mode in effect for 2nd and 3rd shot of a 3 shot sequence..
      Cannot find any obvious settings error likely to be the cause. The bracketing is set to 0.
      Tried to reload latest firmware but it "completes" in about two seconds so never happened. Does Leica determine the actual present checksum of the loaded firmware and decide that a reload is not necessary??
      What am I missing here? Thanks.
