The new firmware update improves autofocus, speed and precision, particularly in low ambient light, ensuring consistently reliable and precise focusing – even in unfavorable light conditions. In addition to this, firmware version 188.8.131.52 offers optimized white balance with manually entered color temperature values (kelvin) to ensure more precise skin-tone rendition when shooting with the flash.
Leica S (Typ 007) owners can also download an update for the Leica Image Shuttle 3.1 dedicated workflow software and the Adobe Lightroom tethered shooting plug-in. The OS X version of Leica Image Shuttle 3.1 for Mac is now available and the version for the Windows operating system will be available in the near future. The Leica S app from the Apple Store allows the remote control of Live View, autofocus and all other exposure-relevant camera controls from an iPhone or iPad. The app also enables browsing of collections of images and offers an easy-to-use image-sharing option.
