Finally, firmware update for the M9!
Of a few improvements Leica included in the update, i think the
auto white balance fix
really helped! (the only minus point i experienced with M9 so
Here’s what LEICA says:
Improvements in the M9 Firmware Version 1.138 1. Camera
• Improved compatibility of SDHC cards. Nevertheless, we recommend
our customers the “Extreme III” cards from the leading brand
• Improved Auto White Balance in conditions with power saving lamps
and tungsten light.
Notice: The choice of SD and SDHC cards in the market is already
very big and is constantly growing. Therefore, Leica Camera AG is
not able to do comprehensive compatibility- and quality testing
with all available cards in the market. We recommend leading brands
such as “SanDisk”. Using other card types, will not damage camera
or card, but as especially “no name” cards do not respect the full
SD or SDHC standards, Leica Camera AG cannot warranty full function
with those cards.
2. Bug fixes:
• Saving user profiles has been improved (changing from one profile
to another did sometimes cause problems)
• Time display in “American” format corrected. • Auto power off bug
fixed (camera did turn off automatically while using the Play Mode
through the menu).
