Leica yesterday published a small update for the Leica M10 Firmware:

 

Version 1.9.4.0 does only fix one bug. From the release note:

 

Unfortuntely we discovered, that in certain cases, the firmware 1.7.4.0 could produce black images when using short exposure times.

 

On this page you'll find the firmware download:

Something very wrong with the Leica server....

Several attempts at file download have failed, and download speed has been 24-40 KB/s,

whereas a download speed test for my mobile broadband service revealed 7.9 Mb/s

odd...

Just small information. Since very first FW update for M10 LEICA tags all of them with the following languages: Chinese English French German Italian Japanese Korean Polish Russian. This is not true. There is no Polish language available but ... Portuguese. The only real Polish file on download page is FW installation manual for version 1.3.4.0.

Thanks for the alert.  Haven't encountered the problem (electronic shutter at high speeds?).  No difficulty with the download and firmware installation, although it took a little over 5 minutes to complete.  My settings were not affected.

Done without problem. I had two blank shots a few days ago, not sure why, maybe due to that bug in the previous version.

Fine at midday London. Took abut 25s to download to iMac and all working now. Upload to camera takes perhaps several minutes as with the recent previous firmware.

Took two attempts to download the firmware but probably my own slow internet. Installed okay but be warned it is a different installation process to the last one.

Seemed exactly the same to me. Happy to report no issues upgrading.  


TW is in love with an M type 240, an M10, a Summicron and Summarit 1.5 50mm, an Elmarit 28 and 90mm, an Elmar and Telyt APO 135, a Zeiss Distagon and Summilux 35mm pre-ASPH, a Super-Elmar 3.4 ASPH, a Voigtlander Heliar and a Summilux 75mm. 

Photographic evidence of his previous indiscretions  committed with other gear as well as his utter lack of mastery can be found on Flickr

No problem for me either. I've noticed that the Leica server is pretty slow, or could be the distance from Northern California.

Hi everyone,
 
I just installed the the new firmware (no issues and everything went smoothly) and have noticed the following bug.
 
Every time you take a picture with exposure compensation applied, either + or -, and then you look at the image on the LCD and overlay the photo info, it will show the exp comp as -3.  Regardless of the exposure compensation used... it will always show -3.
 
Anyone else see the same thing?
 
Cheers.

H LNG,

Yes, me too. Exposure comp appears correctly in the preview, then as -3 in the 'play' review of the in-camera jpg.

Actual exposure seems to be correct.

Hi Renatus,

 

That is right... the image is exposed as planned. It is just on the play mode that shows it as -3.

 

Well... it is good to know that you also have the issue, which means it is a firmware bug.  Not a critical one at all... but something they should probably fix with the next firmware.

 

Cheers,

L.

I've noticed this too. Perhaps Leica are keeping us on our toes by always leaving at least one bug in the system! It does not bother me very much.

In my menu, the firmware version (1.9.4.0) is grayed out. Is this correct? Is it supposed to be grayed out?
