Firmware update for Leica M10-P, M10-R and M10 Monochrom.
Besides a general firmware update, this includes a very useful new feature, perspective control, which will automatically correct converging lines in a photograph and assures a straight horizon. This is especially useful for architectural photography.
NEW FIRMWARE FOR THE LEICA M10-P, M10-R, AND M10 MONOCHROM: USING COMPUTATIONAL IMAGING TO CORRECT PERSPECTIVE DISTORTION
The new firmware update for the camera models Leica M10-P, M10-R and M10 Monochrom introduces an exciting feature: the Leica Perspective Control function, abbreviated as LPC. Having installed the update, owners of the above-listed cameras are able to activate the Perspective Control function – which uses the camera’s integrated orientation sensors to recognise whether it is being held in a straight position, or tilted upwards or downwards. On the basis of this information, the function uses computational imaging to automatically correct receding lines – a common phenomenon that is especially bothersome in architectural photography. The term ‘computational imaging’ refers to the process of forming images with the aid of in-camera algorithms.
To begin with, the new Leica Perspective Control function will be available for the camera models Leica M10-P, M10-R and M10 Monochrom. The firmware update containing this new feature can be downloaded free of charge at www.leica-camera.com, and installed by following the instructions provided.
