Leica M10 1.9.4.0 Firmware Updates and Bug Fix

ShaShinKi.com - 728x90 Nikon

Leica has released firmware 1.9.4.0 for the M10, correcting a bug from firmware 1.7.4.0 that produces black images in some cases during short exposures. The company has also advised M10 owners on how to handle SD cards issues that may arise in some circumstances, stating that cards with speeds of at least 80MB/s should be used.

The latest firmware can be downloaded here.

The full M10 firmware v. 1.9.4.0 change-log reads:

  • With the previous firmware 1.7.4.0, a larger selection of SD cards were made compatible with the Leica M10. Unfortunately we discovered, that in certain cases, the firmware 1.7.4.0 could produce black images when using short exposure times. This bug has now been fixed with firmware 1.9.4.0.
  • All improvements from previous firmware versions are included in firmware 1.9.4.0. We apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused.

Improvements of SD card compatibility

  • With the Firmware 1.7.4.0 a larger choice of SD cards is compatible with the Leica M10.
  • With the last Firmware, certain SD cards were not recognized, or the complete write speed could not be used with the camera.
  • The Leica M10 supports SDHC/SDXC cards from 1GB up to 512 GB. We recommend to use cards with write speed 80 MB/s or higher in order not to restrict the cameras performance. In single cases it can occur that the speed, stated by the cards manufacturers, differs from the effective read or write speed in the Leica M10.
  • Use UHS I cards instead of UHS II. The M10 is compatible with UHS II cards, but does not use the full UHS II speed. Leica performs ongoing compatibility tests of the latest cards available in the market. We ask for your understanding that due to changes in production and software, Leica cannot guarantee a 100% compatibility of the recommended cards.

Sony A9 Firmware Update V1.01 – addressing overheating issue

ShaShinKi.com - 728x90 Nikon

Sony has just released a new firmware update v1.01 addressing the overheating issue of their latest professional A9 camera that goes upto 20fps shooting speed.

Photographer Danny Eusebio, known as that1cameraguy online, posted the 9.5-minute video above about a recent experience he had with the camera. After taking the a9 to a pool for a swim meet, Eusebio noticed that the overheating warning icon showed up on the screen after less than 20 minutes of use in 81°F.

Sony A9 is still in pre-order stage in Malaysia. Not hitting any physical stores yet. If you are getting one or already in the pre-order list, do have the new firmware ready in your computer and update the firmware when you have the camera in hand.
