Leica Camera AG are offering a new firmware update for the Leica S (Typ 007), available as of today.
Improvements include an automatic lens update, whereby lenses with older firmware are immediately recognised and automatically brought up to date. The individual programming of function keys has been expanded to include the Live View button as well as the shutter release button, which can now be configured to the AE lock.
Icon Display and Camera Performance
The display of camera settings has also been improved. AUTO-ISO operation is now indicated on both display panels (info screen and top panel), while the video-record symbol (REC) is shown on the top panel. GPS and WiFi are now also displayed as icons on the rear info screen. In addition, the new firmware offers a number of improvements in terms of camera performance.
Registered users are able to download the new firmware 184.108.40.206 by logging on to the Leica owners area. Alternatively, simply take your camera to a Leica Store to receive a free update as well as answers to any questions you may have.
