Overview
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.

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 to this 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.

British photographer Matt Stuart has been photographing the streets of London for over 20 years. This has given him a unique ability for identifying situations in fractions of a second and perfectly capturing their essence in pictures. It is, therefore, not surprising that he is counted among the most prominent representatives of his genre: contemporary street photography.

Matt Stuart was one of the first photographers to be given the chance to test the M10 – in Brussels. The resulting images were as beautiful and diverse as the city itself: curiosities and exciting snippets of everyday life – all captured by Matt Stuart in perfect little masterpieces. The camera felt familiar and ideal from the first moment on: ‘The M10 feels exactly like an analog Leica. Small and discreet – for me, it’s perfect. It’s like meeting up with an old friend again.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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 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.

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.
