First Look at the Leica M10 Rangefinder

Earlier this week Leica introduced the M10 – it’s latest full frame digital rangefinder (after the M9 Type 262). The camera brings several improvements, both outside and inside the hood.

The new camera was designed to be thinner and easier to use both in terms of the controls and menus as well as produce higher quality images with a new sensor and processor, the shooting speed is also higher (although this is still far from a sports shooting camera). On the video above Robin Sinha from the Leica Akademie explains some of the new features of the M10.

Here are some of the specs of the new Leica camera:

  • A new 24MP full-frame CMOS sensor.
  • Processor: Maestro II (like the one on the Leica SL).
  • LCD: 1.04 million-dot rear LCD (with Gorilla glass).
  • Continuous shooting speed: 5 fps (up to 30 Raw frames).
  • ISO range 100-6400 (extendable to ISO 50,000).
  • New (simpler) menu system.
  • Automatic lens corrections.
  • EVF – the M10 is compatible with  the Leica Visoflex’ 2.4m-dot EVF (that is besides the camera buiilt in OVF).
  • CIPA: around 210 shots
  • Built-in WiFi and an app.
  • Price: $6595.
