Product descriptionIts unique balance of heritage and technical innovation embodies the essence of everything that is truly important for photography. Compact dimensions, improved performance and the new ISO setting dial on the top plate offer M-Photographers what they wish for from an M-Camera.
Since the release of the Leica M3 at Photokina in 1954, every single M-System camera has represented the pinnacle of innovation for its day. Defined by what is essential for photography. Leica embodies this passion for quality, craftsmanship and its philosophy of photography until today. More than 60 years of rangefinder expertise, 11 years of digital M-Camera development and invaluable feedback from dedicated M-Photographers have inspired Leica engineers to create the slimmest digital M of all time: the Leica M10.• As slimly built as an analogue M Many photographers appreciate the dimensions of analogue M-Camera models for their perfect ergonomics and their fit in the hands. The Leica M10 marks the return to precisely these dimensions. • ISO setting dial The ISO setting dial allows photographers to set the most important parameters for any particular situation– even when the camera is switched off. • Extended ISO range Thanks to the new sensor design of the Leica M10, the ISO sensitivity range has now been extended to enable exposures between ISO 100 and ISO 50,000. • Leaner handling concept The focus has been set on the functions essential for photography: The back of the camera features only three buttons: Review, Live-View and Menu. • The improved viewfinder lets you see more 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. • Fast continuous shooting Thanks to a 2 GB buffer memory and sequential shooting at up to five frames per second,photographers will never again miss the decisive moment. • Camera type - compact digital view and range finder system camera • Lens attachment Leica M bayonet with additional sensor for 6-bit coding • Lens system - Leica M lenses, Leica R lenses with an optional adapter (available accessory) • Sensor - CMOS sensor, active surface area approx. 24 x 36mm • Resolution -DNG™: 5976 x 3992 pixels (24MP), JPEG: 5952 x 3968 pixels (24MP), 4256 x 2832 pixels (12MP), 2976 x 1984 pixels (6MP) • Data formats - DNG™ (raw data, compressed loss-free), JPEG • File size - DNG™: 20-30 MB, JPEG: Depending on resolution and picture content • Buffer memory - 2GB / 16 pictures in series • White balance - Automatic, manual, 8 presets, colour temperature input • Storage media - SD cards up to 2GB/SDHC cards up to 32GB/SDXC cards up to 2TB • Menu languages - German, English, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Russian, Korean • Exposure metering - Exposure metering through the lens (TTL), with working aperture • Metering method - Light reflected by the blades of the 1 shutter curtain onto measuring cell. • Metering range - At room temperature and normal humidity at ISO 100, at aperture 1.0 EV-1 to EV20 at aperture 32.
