Earlier today, we reported on a professional videographer's less-than-enthusiastic review of the somewhat clumsily-named Leica M (Typ 240). It's the company's first video-capable rangefinder camera, and Johnnie Behiri, an Austrian freelance cameraman and editor for the BBC, found more shortcomings than positives in its video feature set. It's important to note, though, that Johnnie's comments were limited strictly to video capture, something he was quick to note himself. The Leica M is, first and foremost, still a still camera -- and with the release of a new firmware update today, it should prove more satisfying in that respect.

The latest update for the M (Typ 240) takes it to firmware version, and Leica notes but one change in its release notes. Vignetting correction is said to have been improved for a selection of 11 different lens models.

New firmware improves vignetting correction with the Leica M (Typ 240) and 11 lens types.

In all, the list of lenses for which the Leica M 240 should better correct light falloff in the corners includes the following:

  • Tri-Elmar-M 16-18-21mm/f4 ASPH.

  • Super-Elmar-M18mm/f3.8 ASPH.

  • Summilux-M 21mm/f1.4 ASPH.

  • Super-Elmar-M 21mm/f3.4 ASPH.

  • Summilux-M 24mm/f1.4 ASPH.

  • Elmarit-M 24mm/f2.8 ASPH.

  • Elmar-M 24mm/f3.8 ASPH.

  • Summicron-M 28mm/f2.0 ASPH.

  • Elmarit-M 28mm/f2.8 ASPH.

  • Summilux-M 35mm/f1.4 ASPH.

  • Summicron-M 35mm/f2.0 ASPH.

The firmware update can be found on Leica's website, along with a PDF document detailing the upgrade process. More details on the camera itself can be found in our Leica M (Typ 240) preview.
