Slimmer in size, faster in performance, and offering the best image quality with smarter connectivity for intuitive usage - the Leica M10 sets the new standards for rangefinder photography and state-of-the-art imaging. The Leica M10 builds on more than 60 years of rangefinder expertise, 11 years of digital M-Camera development and the invaluable feedback from dedicated M-Photographers to not only bring one of the slimmest digital M of all time, but some of the most refined and state-of-the-art digital rangefinder Leica has ever created.
ISO Setting Dial For Better Control
One of the most striking changes with the Leica M10 is the ISO setting dial on the top plate. For the first time in a digital M, the M10 allows all essential shooting parameters such as distance, aperture, exposure time and ISO values to be preselected without using the menu or switching on the camera. This allows for better control and more discreet photography.
Superior Imaging Performance
The key component of the Leica M10 is the new 24 MP full-frame CMOS sensor developed specifically for this camera. It features new technologies that lead to significant improvements in all parameters relevant to imaging performance - impressive dynamic range, excellent colour rendition, exceptional sharpness and the finest resolution of details.
The Maestro-II Processor
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 cameras - pictures that captivate with exceptional quality and brilliance. The Leica M10 delivers images with low digital noise levels and true-to-life detail, even at ISO values as high as 50,000.
New Optical Rangefinder/Viewfinder
The new optical rangefinder/viewfinder in the M10 greatly improves the focusing and composing of subjects. The field of view has been enlarged by 30%. The magnification factor has been increased to 0.73 x. Also, with a 50% increase of the eye-relief distance, the viewfinder is much more convenient to use, especially for those who wear glasses.
Leaner Operating Concept
With a slimmer profile and only three buttons on the back of the camera - Live-View, Playback and Menu, the Leica M10 is incredibly easy to handle and use. Fast Continuous Shooting With a 2.0 GB buffer memory and continuous shooting of up to 5 frames per second at full resolution, the Leica M10 ensures that a photographer will never miss decisive moments.
Weather Resistant for All Conditions
The Leica M10 is perfectly equipped to withstand light water sprays and dust. The camera’s top and bottom plates are machined from solid blocks of brass, with a full-metal magnesium-alloy chassis and scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass covering the LCD. The build of the camera and its special rubber seals make it able to resist the adversities of everyday life, even in bad weather.
The ‘Favorites’ Menu
The importance of particular settings varies according to personal preferences and photographic needs. To cater for these, the Leica M10 offers a programmable ‘Favourites’ menu. In this menu, the photographer defines personal preferences for the relevant parameters and can later access them at the press of a button. The settings can be easily changed and adapted to meet the needs of specific photographic situations at any time.
Live-View Focusing with Focus Peaking
Live-View offers both focus peaking, the automatic marking of sharply focused edges as coloured lines, as well as magnification to attain pin-point accurate focusing on the LCD monitor. In the Leica M10, the visibility of these contrasting peaking lines has been vastly improved from the previous generation, and now enables even more convenient focusing by allowing the magnified view to be moved anywhere on the Live-View image.
Sustainability & Longevity
Leica has been making history for decades - with cameras that have always been ahead of their time. Throughout all these years, Leica has always kept a tight focus on sustainability. In the 1950s, Leica created a timeless and enduring standard - the Leica M-bayonet. Nearly all Leica M-Lenses produced ever since can be mounted and used on the Leica M10. Leica cameras and lenses are timeless and faithful companions with enduring reliability and an exceptionally long life.
Compatibility With Leica Visoflex EVF and R-Lenses
The combination of the Leica R-Adapter and the Leica Visoflex 2.4 MP electronic viewfinder makes it possible to use nearly all Leica R-Lenses ever made on the M10. Manually focusing R-Lenses is now easier than on prior M cameras with the combination of the Visoflex and the M10’s improved Live-View functions. Additionally, the Visoflex’s built-in GPS functionality embeds geotag data into every image the M10 captures while it is mounted.
