Leica Q2 firmware update version 2.0 released

A new firmware update version 2.0 was just released for the Leica Q2 camera. Here is the list of performance improvements:

  • AF field size selectable
    Choose between three AF field sizes (small, medium, large) by a long tap on the camera display while touch AF is activated.
  • DNG writing speed improved
    The DNG and DNG+JPEG writing speed is now improved by the factor 2x.
  • Deleting user profiles
    The user now can delete individual/single user profiles.
  • Touch AF + Release
    Touch AF + Release is now implemented and works in all AF modes.
  • Status screen for photo and video implemented
    Complete overview of the preferred settings, easy access and operation by touch. The video mode can be deactivated or activated via the status screen.
  • Exposure parameters for video
    Extended opportunities for capturing video files including the ability to switch between PASM by aperture- and shutter speed dial.
  • Auto ISO behavior
    The auto-ISO behavior was changed and the priority is now set to “correct exposure”.
  • Manual Focus behavior
    In MF mode the preselected AF frame will appear and can be used to start the magnification, the frame can be moved by using the cursor keys.
    In AF-Multi: the magnification will start from the center and
    the last position is saved until the camera is switched off.
  • Face Detection behavior
    If the face detection is not successful, the AF-Mode now switches to AF field instead of AF multi field.
  • Leica FOTOS transfer speed
    Downloading photos from the Leica Q2 to Leica FOTOS is now up to 50% faster.
    (The Leica Q2 needs to be paired again with Leica FOTOS after this firmware update)
  • Variable EVF frame rate
    A menu was added to choose between 60fps or 120 fps. For fast moving subjects set 120 fps for a more fluid display of movement (with lower resolution) or choose 60 fps for full resolution.
  • AF-L / AE – added to Zoom button
    The AF and AE lock function allows you to lock your focus or exposure settings separately as you recompose your shot.
  • Improvement of Tracking AF
    Precision and overall performance of Tracking AF is improved.
  • Touch in EVF
    Touch functionality during EVF mode is now available.
