Leica M9 Firmware V 1.176

十二月 6th, 2011

Leica 新的韌體 1.176

主要是解決 SanDisk 的 SD 卡問題,SanDisk 現在都可以用了。

A firmware update (1.176) eliminating a rare fault occurring during the initialization of the cards will be available for downloading as of Dec. 6th, 2011.

Continued testing has revealed that the function faults registered in the earlier tests were not due to the SD cards.
As a result, we would like to revoke the constrictions made with respect to the compatible cards. Generally speaking, the Leica M9/M9-P is compatible with any SD card that is in accordance with the respective standards. Unfortunately, it is impossible to test the compatibility of every single card of every single supplier.
All cards available from SanDisk have been compatibility-tested and the firmware version 1.1.76 ensures their proper function.

We would explicitly like to thank SanDisk for their intensive technical support while searching for the cause of the fault and express our regrets for having mistakenly stated that certain SanDisk cards may not be compatible with the firmware version 1.174.
Furthermore, we would like to thank all affected customers for their patience and their positive support in searching for the cause of the fault.

十一月 10th, 2011

M9 Firmware  更新摟~

download from here

主要是解決 SD 卡的問題。

另外建議不要用 Sandisk 的兩款SD 卡,請大家注意了。

Improvements in the M9 Firmware Version 1.174
1. Bug fixes:
Leica Camera has become aware of customers experiencing compatibility issues related to select types
of new memory cards when used in the Leica M9.
This Firmware 1.174 fixes a bug that led to the faulty behaviour. Generally Leica recommends to use SD
/ SDHC Cards from San Disk. Until further notice, the following SD-Cards are still not recommended to
use, because some misbehaviour occurred in the test phasis.
– San Disk Extreme Pro SDHC I UHS-1 (all card sizes)
– San Disk Extreme HD Video SDHC I (all card sizes)

Leica Camera AG pays dividend for the first time since 1997

如果這個消息是真的,看起來至少到目前為止, M9 是很成功的。

常收到一些朋友討論 Leica 是不是要倒了,賣這樣的價錢有問題,看到這消息應該不用擔心了。


Leica 去年是賺錢的,甚至開始分紅了。
