Leica Releases Firmware Updates for SL2/SL2-S and Q2/Q2M Cameras

Leica released firmware update version 6.0 for the SL2/SL2-S mirrorless cameras. Here is what’s new:

  • Continuous shooting with activated Perspective Control
    SL2: for 2 fps and 6 fps, SL2-S: for 2 fps and 5 fps
  • Added lock function for white balance settings Auto ISO and Auto

  • Joystick: More assignment options


  • GPS accuracy of the shooting location was significantly improved
