Improvements in the Leica M9 Firmware Version 1.138

1. Camera Performance:

• Improved compatibility of SDHC cards.
• 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 or scrolling through the menu).
