New firmware update FW for the LEICA S and LEICA S2 (FW

Leica Camera AG, Solms, has posted the latest firmware updates for the Leica S (FW and the Leica S2/S2-P (FW on the Leica website. Users wishing to bring their camera up to date can now download the update from the Leica owners’ area and take advantage of the improvements.

Both firmware updates relate to the use of the new Leica Elmarit-S 45 mm f/2.8 ASPH. (CS) lens and ensure optimum functionality when the lens is mounted on Leica S, S2 and S2-P cameras.

The Leica S Firmware Update FW also contains further optimisations. These include improvements in tethered shooting for DNG-compressed file output and that the flash triggering signal is now passed to the sync socket at all shutter speeds. Also new is that user-settings for bracketing sequences and the self-timer can now be stored in user profiles and that, when previously set, they now remain active after restarting the camera. In addition to the above, the colour temperature of the monitor screen has also been optimised and Korean has been added to the language options. Errors registered by users, such as the focusing behaviour of the Leica Vario-Elmar-S 30–90 mm f/3.5–5.6 ASPH. and in user profiles, have been corrected.

Registered S customers can now download the files containing the firmware and an installation guide from the owners’ area at:
