Leica Camera AG has released Firmware Version 1.162 for the Leica M9, billed as the world’s smallest, full-frame digital system camera.
Leica said Version 1.162 features a revision of sensor homogeneity for wide-angle lenses. The additional color calibration noticeably reduces chromatic differences between the center and the corners of an image, especially in critical shooting situations. Additionally, the software processes of the Leica M9 have been optimized, significantly reducing the “red edges effect,” and improving the menu’s Italian translation.
Launched in September 2009 and touted as the world’s first digital rangefinder camera with a 24 x 36 sensor, the Leica M9 carries the proud heritage of the Leica M system into the digital age. It is priced at about US$8,000.
