New Leica M10 Comes with a Thinner Body, ISO Dial, and Wi-Fi

Leica M10 mirrorless camera officially announced with a thinner body, ISO dial, and Wi-Fi.. This is the latest digital rangefinder model in the renowned M-System lineup.

Leica M10 is a new 24-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with better dynamic range, sharpness, resolution, and contrast rendition.

The digital M-system rangefinder camera provides a top plate depth of only 33.75 millimeters, a whole four millimeters less than that of its close relative, the Leica M (Typ 240).  The new model offers an improved viewfinder with a magnification factor of 0.73 and a 50% higher eye-point.

Leica M10 specs also include a top-mounted ISO setting dial, a new Maestro II image processor, 5fps max shooting, a scratch-resistant 1.04M-dot rear LCD, and built-in Wi-Fi.

The new Leica M10 will be available in black and silver starting January 19th, 2017, with a price tag of $6,595.

The Leica M10 has a 2GB memory buffer that allows users to shoot continuous burst at 5 frames per second at full resolution for up to 16 frames.

ISO range has been expanded in the M10, allowing photographers to shoot at ISO 100 to 50,000 (up from 200-6400). Noise has been reduced at higher ISOs as well compared to predecessors.

Wi-Fi connectivity is also another first for M cameras. This allows photographers to quickly and easily transfer photos from M10 to mobile devices. You can directly transfer DNG raw files for on-the-go editing and sharing using the Leica M-App.
