Many photographers wished for a return to the dimensions and ideal ergonomics of analogue M models. Leica has taken note of these wishes: the dimensions of the M10 are now identical to those of analogue M-Cameras. The Leica M10 is the slimmest digital M of all time.
ISO setting range extended from 100 to 50,000
The new sensor design of the Leica M10 has made it possible to extend the ISO sensitivity range to values between 100 and 50,000 and also brings significantly improved noise characteristics in exposures captured at higher ISO values. The Leica M10 opens up entirely new areas of photography and delivers exceptional imaging performance even in difficult lighting conditions.
The improved viewfinder lets you see more
From the very beginning, the ‘Messsucher’ (combined rangefinder/viewfinder) of the Leica M played an essential role. So essential that it gave the system its name; the ‘M‘ stands for ‘Messsucher’. For the Leica M10, several important aspects of this legendary combined viewfinder and rangefinder system have now been further improved. To improve the view of the subject, the field of view has been enlarged by 30% and the magnification factor has been increased 0.73. In addition to this, the eye-relief distance has also been significantly increased. Thanks to a 50% increase in this distance, the viewfinder is much more convenient to use, particularly for photographers who wear glasses.
Fast continuous shooting Up to 5 frames per second
Thanks to a 2 GB buffer memory and sequential shooting at up to five frames per second at full resolution, photographers will never again miss the decisive moment.<
The new Maestro-II processor takes the M10 to the next quality level
The latest-generation Leica Maestro-II image processor of the Leica M10 reflects the state-of-the-art of advanced processor technology. In combination with the new 24 MP sensor, this ensures that all exposures fulfill the promise made by Leica: pictures that captivate with exceptional quality and brilliance. As a result, the Leica M10 delivers images with low digital noise levels and true-to-life detail, even at ISO values as high as 50,000.
Superior imaging performance thanks to a new 24 MP sensor
The key component of the Leica M10 is the 24 MP, full-frame CMOS sensor developed especially for the camera. It features new technologies that lead to significant improvements in all parameters relevant to imaging performance: impressive dynamic range, excellent contrast rendition, exceptional sharpness and finest resolution of details.
Perfectly equipped to withstand light showers, dust & Co.
Thanks to components machined from solid brass, the high strength of the M-10’s full-metal, magnesium alloy chassis and scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass, is built to effortlessly resist the adversities of everyday life guaranteeing enduring pleasure to the photographers. Further protection against light showers, dust and bad weather is provided by special rubber seals.
Wireless communication with the M-App and WLAN connectivity
The Leica M10 is the first M-Camera with an integrated WLAN module. This allows pictures to be sent conveniently to iOS devices wireless and shared online. It also enables remote control of the Leica M10 by WLAN with a smartphone and the Leica M-App. If required, important parameters like the shutter speed or functions like releasing the shutter can also be controlled from the smartphone. This makes it easy to shoot from unusual angles and avoid camera shake when shooting with longer shutter speeds.
Focusing with Focus Peaking
Focusing made easy: The Live View function of the Leica M10 offers two convenient focusing method. Focus Peaking automatically marks sharply focused edges as colored lines and Live View offers the ability to magnify the subject on the monitor screen. In the Leica M10, the visibility of these contrasting lines has been improved against the previous generation and now enables even more convenient focusing assessment to ensure images with outstanding sharpness.
