Leica M Firmware UPDATE is HERE! Version 188.8.131.52
FINALLY! Leica has released new firmware for the M 240 that they say improves the white balance of the camera. I have just downloaded it and will be testing it today and report back with my findings in about 30-45 minutes. But for now, go get it if you own a Leica M!
M (Type 240) Firmware Version 184.108.40.206
Improvements in firmware version 220.127.116.11 versus version 18.104.22.168
Improved performance of the white balance
The accuracy of the white balance presets and the auto white balance function is higher with version 22.214.171.124. This results in better skin tones and better general colour rendering.
Improved Video quality
The visibility of compression artifacts is reduced due to lower video compression.
For coded Leica lenses, the image homogeneity (colour shift) has been improved.
