I've had similar occurences with the M 262 - maybe it's something this generation of cameras and/or batteries does ... That said, my issue wasn't too bad - I just needed to use the blower. It pays to check for dust from time to time, that's all I have to get used to.I know it’s part of the script before you buy a Leica - fragile things, best fixed by an 8 month stay at the repairers in Germany at enormous cost n’all that - but I had a nasty episode over the weekend of the camera becoming dead after the first shot which could only be temporarily fixed by taking the battery out and then in again, plus the camera overheating - which appears to have been fixed by a simple replacement of the SD card. Of course, the hoops I had to jump over to get to that stage and establish that took the whole weekend. So while the subject matter is different, our frustrations appear to have been similar over the weekend.
I'm not (yet) a tablet guy, though I try (have tried, a couple of times). But I've looked into the iPad, especially the Pro - it's a great tool for sure. It'd be one hell of a paradigm shift, though (the cheapest vs. the most expensive way of getting a "computer"). For the time being, I'll use up my stack of laptops that have accumulated over the last couple of years (mainly for evaluation purposes - but the machines ended up in my possession). I still have a couple of travel-worthy small units that do work - after a fashion, at least. And there's still the Acer Switch 5 I got for work but don't use regularily - it's a nice compact machine, but I'm really bad at working with the stylus, and the detachable keyboard (more of a type cover, though with really nice keys) is not practical in my usual use (pick up the machine and walk around with it in one hand - keyboard flapping from the bottom?!). I'll learn how to use it efficiently - but it'll take some time and leisure. For now, I have to stick to what I know how to handle.How about that iPad... maybe a Pro?
@BrianS If I could write my own software and optimise it for my purposes, I would do the same thing as you. I am into GNU/Linux, but after the last couple of policy changes I do have to use Windows for work (Office365, OneDrive synchronisation, OneNote ...). The Chromebooks were an attempt at a sort of getaway from my work environment, and as long as they lasted (and to be fair, I probably overused them way beyond what they were meant to endure), it actually worked. I shouldn't be too critical - the hardware *was* cheap and actually held up reasonably well. But the way Chrome OS/Google handle files is, shall we say, "proprietary"? That's all I'm complaining about, really. I guess I got what I paid for, after all - and I sure got what I chose. Once the dust has settled, I'll set up a sensible GNU/Linux laptop for my personal needs.
