Leica M Typ 240 Firmware Update

Leica has released firmware update 2.0.1.5 for the Leica M Typ 240. I updated my M240 without incident.

The thing I noticed immediately was the Horizon option for Live View—no more need for 14 button presses into the menus.

Reader Gen F writes:

If you update it restarts your shot count. If you take one shot andchange the file name in the Finder to the next number in your pre-updated sequence the camera starts counting at that number. I'm sure you knew this already but I was glad someone else told me so I figure it wouldn't hurt to repeat to you.

DIGLLOYD: that works, and it could be used any time. It also resets the filename prefix.

But of much greater concern is that the update resets the file format to JPEG. A bit nasty if you don’t notice. Check ALL settings after the firmware update.

Improvements – Leica M (Typ 240) Firmware Version 2.0.1.5.

  • Improved description of the lens type in Exif-Data
  • Live view is now possible with every lens (including older screw lenses via an adapter) using “manual lens detection”
  • A “Video off” option is now available in the Set menu (see submenu item “Video recording”)
  • The M-Button on the Top-cover is deactivated when this option is chosen.
  • The Horizon (level) is now visible in Live View, overlaying the live image. This additional info screen is enabled using the menu item “Horizon”
  • Exposure simulation -> Permanent: Live View accurately shows image brightness according to the shutter speed and aperture set in manual exposure (as long as the chosen exposure time is shorter than 1/30s).
  • Exposure simulation -> Release button half-pressed: Image brightness in live view is adjusted for best visibility, regardless of the actual exposure. Half pressing the shutter button shows the actual exposure.
  • Extended Auto ISO options: All Auto ISO options are now visible using the ISO button and extra options for “Maximum Exposure Time” - 1x, 2 x, or 4x focal length - can be selected
  • To help avoid camera shake when using auto ISO and long lenses.
    o “Auto ISO in M mode” is now offered as an option. This varies ISO sensitivity for correct exposure when shutter speed and aperture are set manually.
  • Alternatively the camera chooses the previous manually-chosen ISO speed
  • Crop marks—in Live View, new crop marks for 3:4 / 6:7 / 1:1 / and 16:9 aspect ratios can be displayed. By pressing the up/down keys, the crop marks are superimposed on the live view screen (without additional information)
  • During video recording, 1/25s is now used instead of 1/24s. This reduces flicker effects with 50Hz mains voltage
  • Exposure bracketing settings are now saved when the camera is switched off
  • Direct exposure correction: An “EV correction” option in the menu enables direct adjustment. So EV compensation can be altered by turning the thumb wheel, without having to press additional buttons.
  • New Light Metering Mode “Classic / LV disabled”: In this mode, only Classic light-metering is possible; the LV button is disabled to avoid the activation of live view by accident.
  • New menu item “Focus Peaking”: For improved visibility, the color of focus peaking can now be set to red, green or blue.
  • Better display of GPS location data. Position is now shown for JPG files in Adobe Lightroom®. Where the GPS signal is weak, the last position is now deleted after 5min instead of 24h as in previous firmware versions.
  • Bugfix in Live View at high temperatures: Occasional malfunction of Live View at high temperatures has been fixed.
  • Bug fix in light metering (Live view).
  • Bug fix regarding sensor cleaning function
