Today, Leica Camera has released its first firmware update for the recently released M-D (Typ 262) digital rangefinder camera. Firmware version adds a power-saving mode that turns the camera off after 10 minutes without use or any buttons being touched. This is quite handy if you forget to power off the camera before putting it away (or if the camera turns on in your bag) as it will prevent the battery from completely draining. You can download the firmware here: Leica M-D (Typ 262) Firmware

To update the firmware in your M-D, follow these steps:

  1. Insert a fully charged battery in your camera
  2. Power off the camera
  3. Insert an SD memory card into a card reader in your computer
  4. Copy the MD262-1004.FW file from your computer onto the memory card
  5. Insert the SD card into the camera
  6. Turn the camera on while holding down the function button on the top plate
  7. The update process will begin, and can take up to 15 minutes. DO NOT turn off your camera, remove the battery or the memory card during this process. The graphic below illustrations what the viewfinder LED display and rear LED light will show:

    Does anyone know if the firmware upgrades for the M-D also works on the M60 version?
