If you are lucky to be using the Leica SL mirrorless system you can download the latest firmware updates from 22nd September 2021 for the following products: Leica SL (TYP 601), Leica SL2 camera, Leica SL2-S camera and Leica SL-lenses. All of the camera updates include lens firmware updates.
The big news from Leica’s free firmware update is that the superb SL2-S camera just got a bit better for video in particular, but photographers aren’t overlooked. Leica has removed recording time limits (so you might want to stock up on new high capacity UHS-II SD cards), as well as improving data storage and other enhancements.
Both photo and video focusing has been improved with updated algorithms keeping pace with user demands and for photo enthusiasts there are a few completely new features. These include exposure for highlights to ensure you can avoid clipping and a new iDR (intelligent dynamic range) feature which draws out more detail from shadow areas in your images. As more hybrid shooters adopt the SL system these are extremely welcome updates, improving features throughout the system.
