26 June 2012: Leica Camera AG has announced a firmware update for the Leica X2. In addition to general performance enhancements, firmware version 1.1 brings improved noise levels at ISO 1600 and improved automatic white balance.
The firmware and full installation instructions can be downloaded by Leica X2 owners at:
The Leica X2 is the second model in the X series of digital compact cameras. Made in Germany by Leica engineers, the X2 features a new, APS-C format, professional CMOS image sensor with 16.5 megapixels (effective 16.2 megapixels), combined with a high-performance Leica Elmarit 24mm f/2.8 ASPH. lens – a classic focal length for photojournalism – providing maximum image quality and brilliance.
The Leica X2 is reminiscent of Leica’s M-System cameras, characterised by its compact design and portable nature, combined with classic, subtle styling. The robust, all-metal construction and premium, high-grip leather-style trim makes the X2 a typical Leica camera in both look and feel. The camera is available in a discreet black or elegant silver finish.
The Leica X2 is available in the UK from authorised Leica dealers including the Leica Store Mayfair: www.leica-storemayfair.co.uk, tel: 020 7629 1351. A full list of authorised UK Leica dealers is available at www.leica-camera.co.uk. The suggested retail price of the Leica X2 is £1,575 inc. VAT.
