PRESS RELEASE: New: Leica S2 Firmware Update Fw 18.104.22.168 Now Available
Solms, Germany (July 28, 2011) - Leica Camera AG has released a new firmware update for the Leica S-System, FW 22.214.171.124. All Leica S2 and S2-P cameras will now be supplied with the latest firmware version. Users wishing to bring their camera up-to-date can download the firmware update from the "Owners Area" on the Leica website and take advantage of the latest improvements.
The firmware update FW 126.96.36.199 includes a revision of the setting procedure for auto-bracketing. Now, the shutter-release button must only be pressed once to activate the full bracketing sequence. This function is particularly useful for shooting bracketed exposures for HDR post-processing. Additionally, the menu-control button at the top right of the camera can now be programmed to carry out a custom function, allowing users quick access to settings. This improvement gives photographers a further opportunity to customize the Leica S2 and S2-P to meet their individual needs and demands.
For installation instructions and to download firmware update FW 188.8.131.52, please visit: https://owners.leica-camera.com.
