German camera manufacturer Leica has lately unveiled its latest full-frame digital rangefinder camera named the M10.
Designed to be compact, light, and hold high standards in the world of cameras and optics, this flagship product has reached more compact dimensions. With a top plate depth of 33.75mm, it is the slimmest digital M so far.
According to Leica, the 24-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor was created exclusively for this camera. It has remarkable improvements in dynamic range, contrast rendition, sharpness and ability to resolve fine detail.
Activated by Leica’s Maestro II image processor and 2GB buffer memory, it can shoot up to five frames per second at full resolution, making it the fastest-ever M-system camera.
Another special feature is that for the first time in a digital M, main photo-capturing parameters such as focusing, aperture, shutter speed and ISO setting can be selected without going into the camera menu.
The M10 is also the first camera in the M system with integrated WLAN connectivity, which allows for fast wireless transfer of images to Apple mobile devices for editing and sharing to social media platforms. Transferring RAW images wirelessly is also applicable using the Leica M-App.
The Leica M10 comes in black or silver chrome and is available in Singapore since 20th Jan 2017, at the price of S$9,950 or about US$7,000 (GST included).
