Leica Firmware Update for M Monochrom, M-E, M9, M9P

Download the Leica M firmware update.

Update: Well, I didn’t notice dates because I got an email today from Leica announcing a firmware update... the web page is a confusing of dates includinng October 19 for some of the cameras, but the M240 seems to be back from April.

Many worthwhile fixes; see comments and links I’ve noted. It’s like Leica finally heard me two to three years after reporting the issues.

  • Implemented optimizations that prevent the camera controls from becoming unresponsive after a series of continuous burst photos fills the buffer.
  • The selected user profile will be displayed even when exposure compensation has been adjusted. Exposure compensation is no longer saved to the user profile.
  • Memory cards with a capacity up to 512 GB are supported. [DIGLLOYD: hooray! I could not use large cards until now]
  • The default file format settings upon camera reset have been changed from JPG to DNG+JPG. [DIGLLOYD: this bit me once after the M240 crashed and did a total reset]
  • The time-out period for the last GPS Position, when no GPS signal is received, has been extended to 2.5 hours (GPS is not available with M (Typ 262))
  • It is now possible to display DNG files from the Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) in all zoom steps, also with the M/M-P (Typ 240 and 262). [DIGLLOYD: this is a BIG plus for reviewing image quality after a shot]
  • When using SD-cards that are too slow for movie recording, a message appears in the viewfinder display Leica Camera AG / Page 1 of 3 Bug Fixes.
  • Bugs, that led to a camera freeze when shooting fast sequences, have been fixed. [DIGLLOYD: this one has been dogging me since the M240 first shipped. 3.5 years to fix it is better late than never I guess].
  • The accuracy of the internal clock has been improved.
  • When using „UTO ISO in M mode“the used exposure metering mode is now being displayed in play mode.
  • Files larger than 2GB can now be transferred from the camera to the PC via USB.
  • The display of the histogram has been optimized for high ISO values.
  • The display of flash exposure compensation values has been improved in the menu.
  • A misleading message (“check battery age”) has been removed.
  • In case of Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246): A bug that led to black pixels in fine pattern has been fixed. [DIGLLOYD: I’m the one who very early reported this bug. It ruined many of my images]
  • Further system optimizations have been implemented.
Rigorously lab tested and OWC certified.
