List of new improvements in the latest firmware update:

  • Prevents the camera controls from becoming unresponsive after a series of continuous burst images fills the buffer
  • The selected user profile will be displayed even when exposure compensation has been adjusted
  • Exposure compensation is no longer saved to the user profile
  • Memory cards with a capacity of up to 512GB are now supported (we don’t necessarily recommend SD cards this large due to long startup times)
  • The default file format settings upon resetting the camera has been changed from ‘JPG’ to ‘DNG+JPG’
  • The time-out period for the last GPS Position, when no GPS signal is received, is extended to 2.5 hours for the Leica M/M-P (Typ 240) and Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) – GPS is not available with the M (Typ 262)
  • It is now possible to display all zoom steps when reviewing images in playback mode from the Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246), Leica M (Typ 262) and Leica M/M-P (Typ 240)

List of bug fixes included in the firmware updates:

  • When using ‘AUTO ISO in M mode’ the used exposure metering mode is now displayed in play mode
  • Files larger than 2GB can now be transferred from the camera to the PC via USB
