February 4, 2016 – Leica Camera today announces new firmware update version 1.5 for the Leica T, which includes new improvements to the connection, speed and functionality of the Leica T’s Wi-Fi capabilities. Wi-Fi DIRECT, a new function in firmware version 1.5, enables Leica T users to set up their own mobile hotspot and transfer pictures via a wireless link between the camera and the Leica T mobile app. With the new firmware, the wireless connection to known networks will reconnect faster and more reliably.

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.
