Leica tweaks handling of its new M10 with firmware 220.127.116.11
Leica has introduced new firmware for its latest M series digital rangefinder that aims to improve a number of aspects of the camera’s handling and operation. Firmware version 18.104.22.168 is said to reduce the duration of the black-out time between frames when using the M10 in Live View mode so the camera is ready to shoot again more quickly.
The new firmware also makes scrolling through the menu system quicker as users can now press the Menu button again to shift from page to page. The Favourites Menu has been expanded by one item to allow up to 15 oft-used features to sit there, and this menu will now divided into two pages when more than seven items are consigned to it.
Photographers making use of the optional Visoflex EVF can now have the camera automatically preview just-captured images there instead of only on the rear screen, and the battery and SD card status bars are now color-coded – from green to yellow to red – to give users an idea of remaining capacity.
Firmware update now available for the Leica M10
Leica Camera has released a firmware update for the Leica M10, downloadable from the Leica web site from today.
Firmware version 22.214.171.124 adds numerous improvements to the camera’s handling. These include optimised colour-coding of the status bar for SD memory cards and battery level, which now change from green to yellow to red as the battery charge level reduces or the card becomes full.
The ‘Favourites Menu’ has also been revised: up to 15 menu entries can now be created and a second Favourites page opens after adding more than seven entries. Furthermore, with this update, M10 owners have even faster access to the main menu – it can now be opened by pressing the Menu button in the Favourites Menu. The same button can also be used for page-by-page scrolling.
An additional new feature enables the selection of the target display for automatic review on the monitor screen. The menu entry now offers the alternatives ‘Auto’, ‘EVF’ or ‘Display’ as target options, while ‘Edit Favourites’ allows the activation of direct access to ‘M-ISO’ as a Favourites Menu item. The firmware update also brings a further significant reduction in the lag (dark screen) between exposure and display when taking pictures in Live View mode.
