Upgraded to D-LUX 4 firmware Ver 2.1

Just upgraded the firmware of my Leica D-LUX 4 to the newly released version 2.1. According to the official release notes, "the exposure compensation and the auto bracket compensation can now be set up to ±3EV." This is a feature that I have been waiting for a long time.

Additionally, a standard "HIGH DYNAMIC" feature has been added to scene mode with this version.

Below are two HDR pictures testing the differences between ±1EV and ±3EV under the same low light condition and the same AWB setting, each directly generated from three auto-bracket shots by Photomatix Pro 3.2.6 using its default settings. No any other modifications.
