Item Description

Leica M10. 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 the slimmest digital M of all time, but the most refined and state-of-the-art digital rangefinder Leica has ever created.

As slimly built as an analogue M

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.

ISO setting dial for better control

One of the most striking changes in the case of 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 even switching on the camera. For even better control and even more discreet photography.

Leaner handling concept

With a handling concept reduced to the currently achievable minimum, the Leica M10 takes a further step in the direction of absolute perfection. Every single component and every technical solution in the Leica M10 concentrates uncompromisingly on photography. For instance, there are only three buttons on the back of the camera: Review, Live-View and Menu.

The improved viewfinder

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

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 & a new 24 MP sensor

  • 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 fulfil 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.
  • 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.

Weather Resistant

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.

The ‘Favourites’ 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.

Wireless communication

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 coloured 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.

Sustainability always in focus

Leica has been making history for decades – with cameras that have always been ahead of their times. 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: almost all M-Lenses produced ever since can be mounted and used on today’s Leica M10. Our optical instruments are timeless and faithful companions with enduring reliability and an exceptionally long life.

Compatibility with the Leica Visoflex and R-Lenses

The combination of the Leica R-Adapter and the Leica Visoflex 2.4 MP electronic accessory viewfinder makes it possible to use almost all Leica R-Lenses on the M10. In addition to this, the advanced loupe function enabled by the processor can now be freely positioned on any part of the viewfinder image for even better assessment of sharpness when shooting with Leica R-Lenses.
