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. 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.
Many photographers appreciate the dimensions of analog M-Camera models for their perfect ergonomics and their fit in the hands. The Leica M10 marks the return to precisely these dimensions.
The ISO setting dial allows photographers to easily set one of the most important parameters for any particular situation – even when the camera is switched off. 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.
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.
To improve the view of the subject, the field of view has been enlarged by 30% and the magnification factor has been increased to 0.73x. In addition to this, the eye-relief distance has also been significantly increased.
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.
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.
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.
