Leica Q: Firmware Update v3.0

Recommended Posts

Could it be continuous focus instead of single?

I don't think so. I think its the iris/exposure rather than the autofocus. Even on manual it still constantly shifts as I reframe with the camera and the light changes. 

 

I've reset the camera and tried all the settings that I can think of but for a while the iris doesn't move, and then for no apparent reason it starts irising open and closed at various apertures (I can see it if i look into the lens and move the camera around).

and if you switch to P-A-S and in manual?

Yes. Its the same on both settings. Randomly after a minute or so the iris just starts opening and closing to adjust to every changing light whereas normally the scene adapts in the EVF without any iris movement and accompanying noise.

Can you resin

How about re-installing the firmware? I’ve not heard of anyone else needing to do that, but something is clearly not right with the new code for your camera.

Can you reinstall the firmware? How? (I don’t know ... just asking.)

Hi everyone. I restarted the camera a couple of times and took it out on a shoot yesterday. All was well. I'm guessing a software glitch on upgrade. I'll be keeping an eye on it though as I spoke to Leica London. They offered to send it to Germany. And it seems no one has reported this issue before. Lets hope no one else does... In other news, the V3 firmware seems to deliver nice looking images...

I don’t know how either. Just trying any possibility to help. Sounds like from the message below he’s been successful getting it to work. I hope it lasts.

Hi All,

 

I have loved the Leica Q since I bought it 2.5 years ago. But since the new update software it has just become so slow at taking photos. Slow to get focus and then there seems to be some sort of lag between pressing the shutter and it actually taking the photo. Plus the way in which it is giving me a 0.0001 second preview (it seems) in the viewfinder when I take a photo is driving me mad. I am going to head to the Leica store in London and check that it isn't a problem with just my camera - I have to say, right now I am looking at the Fujis as a future......

 

Is anyone else feeling the same way?

Sorry to hear of your frustrations. I’ve been very happy overall with the 3.0 firmware. The photo displayed after the shot is a little annoying and I wish they’d make that a selectable option. I’m happy with my Q. If you’re really serious about looking I’d suggest Sony. I tried one of their mirrorless cameras a friend had and I was stunned how fast it focused. I don’t have recent experience with a Fuji. Good luck.

I haven’t experienced any performance issues with firmware 3, my camera works like a charm and the Favorites menu is a gift.

Thanks for the firmware instructions which made the update a breeze. Just need to use the camera now and it’s raining!

The preview in EFV is a gift from leca after the firmware. A gift that nobody asked. If they do not fix the problem within the year I will certainly sell the camera. A pity because with the 3.0 they had added the new menu, was e perfect camera. Not now.

Leica fix auto review problem on SL with firmware 3.3. I wonder if they will do the same with the Q

“Furthermore, an additional option ‘Shutter Pressed’ has been added to Auto Review settings, and the option ‘Off’ no longer enables the camera to show Auto Review while the shutter release is pressed. These revised settings allow photographers to focus on the action in fast action moments where there may not be time to review each picture.”

ich hatte die letzten tage leica nochmals angeschrieben mit dem obigen text.

hier folgende antwort:

ich habe Ihre Mail an die zuständige Produkt-Managerin weitergeleitet. Ich bin mir nicht  sicher, ob diese Punkte auch in eine neue FW für die LEIAC Q verwendbar sind. Wann eine neue FW für die LEIAC Q erscheint und was sie beinhaltet entzieht sich meiner Kenntnis, aber selbst im Flurfunk habe ich noch nichts darüber gehört. Vielleicht lassen sich Ihre Wünsche ja realisieren. Bis dahin. Schönen Tag noch

 

downgrade auf FW2.0 ist übrigens nicht möglich

Hello, thank you for accepting me in your community.

I am the happy owner of a leica Q (Type 116), needing help.

The previous owner has never updated the firmware that is stopped at 1.0, I would like to know how I can update the firmware to bring it 3.0.

Do I have to upgrade to 2.0 before?

Can I upgrade it directly to 3.0?

I can not find the 2.0 update anywhere.

Sorry for my English

Thanks for your help.

Raffaele

Welcome. If you read this thread you'll find the answers.

You can update to the latest firmware immediately, without loading the intermediate versions. You can find the current firmware and update instructions on Leica's website.

Welcome Raffaele,

After you update the firmware to 3.0, I recommend you spend time perusing the past posts about the new features. There are numerous improvements that are not documented in the Q manual. It’s a fun challenge to discover all the great capabilities of the Q. It’s a spectacular camera and it will grow on you as you fully utilize the features and terrific image quality.
