Leica just released a new firmware update for the Leica T. Version 1.5, as it is called, introduces a function called Wi-Fi DIRECT that allows you to transfer images directly from the camera to the Leica T mobile app on your mobile iSO device. This operation would seem quite basic with other Wi-Fi enabled cameras but it was lacking on the Leica T. The only option was to connect both the camera and the app to another connection like the Wi-Fi you have at home. I’m glad that Leica has finally fixed this annoying limitation. The connection speed has also been improved.
The new firmware can be downloaded from the Leica official website or at an official Leica store.
