The essential M-Camera
Since the release of the Leica M3 at Photokina in 1954, every single M-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, over a decade 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.
Its 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.
Many M-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. At a depth of just 33.7mm, the Leica M10 is the slimmest digital M ever made.
ISO setting dial for better control
One of the most striking changes for 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. The result? Better control and even more discreet photography.
Superior imaging performance
The key component of the Leica M10 is the new 24MP, 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 new sensor design 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.
New optical viewfinder
For the Leica M10, several important aspects have been further improved with respect to the viewfinder. To improve the view of the subject, the field of view has been enlarged by 30%. The magnification factor has been increased to 0.73x and thanks to a 50% increase of the eye-relief distance, the viewfinder is much more convenient to use, particularly for photographers who wear glasses.
