Today Leica announced an addition to the M series of rangefinder cameras, the M10.
It is Leica’s first interchangeable lens digital rangefinder and is the successor to the M240.
One of its major highlights is the large 24-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, which has been combined with Lecia’s Maestro II image processor, as well as ISO ranges of between 100 and 50,000, and up to 5 frames per second shooting of 30 DNG RAW files or 100 JPEG images at the full possible resolution.
It also has built-in wireless connectivity with support for Leica’s iOS app, which allows the M10 to be remotely controlled, as well as transfer all of the images wirelessly.
Leica also says that the M10’s viewfinder has a 30 percent larger field of view than the Leica Q sensor from last year while featuring a battery that they say will last a few hundred frames per charge.
All of this is in a sleek and small body that combines brass with magnesium for the construction with an overall matte finish and the classic red Leica dot on the front.
There are also three buttons on the left of the display, with a controller to the right of it.
The M10 will be available in limited quantities from January 19th for £5,600/$6,495.
