LEICA T: New firmware update 1.5 enables users to set up their own camera hotspot for wireless transfer of pictures with the Leica T app

A new firmware update for the Leica T is now available from Leica Camera AG. Customers can now download firmware version 1.5 from the Leica website – www.leica-camera.com – and update their camera system. Alternatively, any Leica Store will be pleased to update the firmware free of charge and offer comprehensive advice about the use of the camera.

Wi-Fi DIRECT, a new function in firmware version 1.5, enables users to set up their own mobile hotspot and transfer pictures via a wireless link between the camera and the Leica T app. The connection speed to known networks has also been improved.

The free Leica T app for iOS devices is available from the Apple App Store and allows remote control of the Leica T with the Live View function and remote setting of all relevant exposure parameters (such as focusing, ISO value, aperture, shutter speed, exposure compensation and capture mode). The app also enables users to create photo albums on smart devices and conveniently share their pictures.
