Leica has launched firmware version 2.0 for the SL2 which adds the long-awaited Multi-Shot mode. Leica had announced that the feature will be made available in 2020 during the camera release in 2019.
This mode captures a 187MP image by combining 8 images to create a DNG file. This is achieved by shifting a sensor in half-pixel increments between shots. This, however, limits the mode to the electronic shutter, and IBIS is turned off to achieve the same.
