Ricoh has released a firmware update for its GR Digital II compact camera.

Firmware version 2.40 includes correction of a problem concerning long exposures when the ‘orientation information (horizontal or vertical) of the image may not be recorded correctly’, says Ricoh.

Improvements also include enabling the camera’s playback mode to show the picture that the photographer played back the last time this function was used (when switching from shooting mode to playback).
