|New Firmware Version For The S2|
A new firmware version for the Leica S2 is available free of charge for all registered S customers in our owners' area.
"Our close cooperation with professional photographers provides us with an opportunity to constantly develop and improve the Leica S-System. Our latest update contains many of the suggestions and wishes heard in discussions with professional users. The result is a whole range of improvements for applications, features and functions, and the handling of the S2, all specifically tailored to meet the particular needs of professional photographers", reports Stephan Schulz, product manager for the Leica S-System at Leica Camera AG.
The improvements in the latest firmware upgrade include, for example, a new white balance setting for HMI light with its daylight-balanced, neutral colours. The functions offered by user-defined button programming have also been optimised: the stop-down button can now also be programmed after installation of the new update. Thanks to a new control element lock function, the shutter speed and aperture dials can now be locked to prevent inadvertent shifts. A more intuitive approach to image display now also contributes to functional optimisation and improved handling. The revised image review functions of the camera monitor allow for improved image quality control. In addition, memory cards formatted outside the camera can now also be used without problems in the S2. And last, but not least, the update supports the latest S-System LEICA SUMMARIT-S 35 mm f/2.5 ASPH. and the LEICA APO-MACRO-SUMMARIT-S 120 mm f/2.5 lenses, as well as ensuring better image quality in JPEG files.
