Your camera is perfectly adequate. Master your tool, master your skills. Master your understanding of light. Master your understanding of composition. Some of my favourite images come from my cellphone and my elderly, can barely hold a charge on the battery Panasonic LX-2.
Set up the camera to the save with the least compression or RAW, best of all, both. Memory cards are cheap. Page 74 of the manual (at least the one I found online tells you how) Set it to RAW + L
To master your tool, study the manual and try the different settings. The old Leica manuals used to strongly advise that you be familiar enough with the camera to load it in the dark. No mean feat to be sure.
Here’s an interesting exercise that Bernie Bloom once gave us in a composition class:
Pick a focal length, say 50mm. Pick a subject 100 yards (in the old money) away. Now, take make three images: 1 at ground level, 1 at waist level and one at eye level. Take 5 steps. Do it again. Rinse, repeat.
Study how the composition changes as you change your perspective. Try it with different focal lengths. You’ll find that sometimes good old sneaker zoom works just fine.
Take the time to understand this maxim: “Camera light meters are pathological liars”. It’s in their nature. To them, their prime directive is: “Everything must be middle grey”. I have yet to find a light meter, handheld, spot, center weighted, matrix that sees a scene like my aging MK I eyeball.
Learn how to make the best compromise for exposure, especially in difficult light. When in doubt, Sunny 16 it (f16 @1/ISO in bright sun) and all the derivatives of that. Play a game with yourself as you walk around trying to guess the your exposure settings would be. To check your self, take an exposure reading of grass. It’s on middle reflectivity and should confirm your guess.
Experiment with different exposure settings for a given ISO. Understand what you are seeing and why.
