New Leica SL firmware improves tethered shooting, SL 50mm F1.4 goes on sale

German photo brand Leica has announced new firmware for its full frame SL mirrorless camera, making it fully compatible with the latest version of the companys tethered shooting and remote control applications.

Firmware 2. 2 bolsters the cameras ability to operate with both Leica Image Shuttle 3. 5 for Mac and Windows, as well as Tethered Plug-in 1. 1. 0 for Mac. Image Shuttle is the companys application for controlling the camera remotely, while Tethered Plug-in allows images to be drawn directly into Adobes Lightroom when connected via a USB cable.

The firmware also removes the restriction on long shutter speeds for those using 6-bit M lenses with the M-Adapter T/SL, as well as some mystery improvements to the camera that are not specified.

The company has also today released the Summilux-SL 50mm F1. 4 ASPH for sale. Announced alongside the SL itself the lens should offer a very slightly more compact alternative to the 24-90mm F2. 8-4 and 90-280mm F2. 8-4 zoom lenses the company has released so far. It costs $5295/

Press release:

Firmware update 2. 2 for Leica SL with improved support for Leica Image Shuttle software and Leica Summilux-SL 50mm f/1. 4 ASPH. lens available today

Leica Camera has released Firmware Update 2. 2 for the Leica SL mirrorless system camera, improving support for the Mac versions of Leica Image Shuttle 3. 5 and Tethered Plug-in 1. 1. 0. , as well as supporting the new Microsoft Windows version of Leica Image Shuttle 3. 5.

Registered Leica SL owners can download the new software and firmware updates from the Leica Owners Area (https://owners. leica-camera. com) or take their camera to their local Leica Store or Leica Customer Care in the UK for a complimentary installation.

Leica Image Shuttle 3. 5 improves workflow efficiency for tethered shooting with the Leica SL and allows the camera to be controlled from a computer via a USB 3. 0 cable connection. All relevant exposure parameters such as shutter speed, aperture, ISO value and autofocus can be set and controlled from the computer, and exposures can be displayed directly on a large monitor screen for assessment.

The Leica Tethered Plug-in 1. 1. 0 (for Mac) also available as a download from the Leica Owners Area establishes a direct connection between the Leica SL and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 / CC for Mac via USB cable. The cameras shutter release can be activated from the plug-in and the images captured can be displayed directly in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 / CC (for Mac), making the workflow even faster and more reliable. The corresponding firmware update is required for the use of Leica Image Shuttle and the Leica Tethered Plug-in.

Firmware update 2. 2 also removes the shutter speed limitation when shooting with 6-bit coded Leica M-Lenses, while further optimising the performance of the Leica SL system.

Available from today, the Leica Summilux-SL 50mm f/1. 4 ASPH. is the first prime lens for the Leica SL-System and sets a new standard in its class. Its large maximum aperture makes this high-performance lens ideal for photography in challenging lighting conditions, and enables the use of shallow depth of focus as a creative tool. Furthermore, the fast, precise and reliable autofocusing ensures that photographers can concentrate fully on composition and creativity. The lens combination of resolving power and soft bokeh in unsharp areas clearly isolates subjects from their background, particularly when shooting at maximum aperture.
