EN­HANCED FUNC­TION­AL­ITY

New Le­ica SL Firmware Update Of­fers Faster Shut­ter Speed and AF Per­for­mance

HWM (Malaysia) - - APERTURE - NEWS -

Le­ica SL (Typ 601) own­ers will be happy to learn that the com­pany has re­leased a new firmware update. The update is a pretty ma­jor one, adding en­hanced aut­o­fo­cus func­tion­al­ity, as well as faster shut­ter speed – up to 1/16,000 sec.

The aut­o­fo­cus func­tion­al­ity has im­proved, in that the firmware bumps up the num­ber of AF points avail­able in sin­gle point mode to 529. Prior to this update, the num­ber of sin­gle AF points was 49. Update al­go­rithms also help to im­prove the AF's speed, ac­cu­racy and track­ing per­for­mance.

Firmware 2.0, as it's called, also al­lows for di­rect ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion con­trol via the top dial and the click wheel at the back of the cam­era. Ex­po­sure can be con­trolled in three dif­fer­ent modes: P, T, and A.

Last but not least, Le­ica has also im­proved the JPEG im­age qual­ity, and en­hanced the white bal­ance, video menu, and Auto ISO op­tions. In ad­di­tion, DNG im­ages can now be mag­ni­fied in-cam­era, and last but not least, the Le­ica SL can now sup­port all Le­ica flash units, thanks to this update.
