Leica M10 Black

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.

Many photographers appreciate the dimensions of analogue M-Camera models for their perfect ergonomics and their fit in the hands. The Leica M10 marks the return to precisely these dimensions.

The ISO setting dial allows photographers to set the most important parameters for any particular situation– even when the camera is switched off.

Thanks to the new sensor design of the Leica M10, the ISO sensitivity range has now been extended to enable exposures between ISO 100 and ISO 50,000.

Light reflected by the blades of the 1 shutter curtain onto measuring cell.

LED in the viewfinder indicates values below the metering range

Flash exposure control

Flash unit attachment

Via accessory shoe with central and control contacts

Synchronisation

Optionally triggered at the 1st or 2nd shutter curtain

Flash sync time

1/180 s; slower shutter speeds can be used, if working below sync speed: Automatic changeover to TTL linear flash mode

with HSS-compatible Leica system flash units

Flash exposure metering

Using centre-weighted TTL pre-flash metering with Leica flash units (SF40, SF64, SF26), or flash units compatible with the

system with SCA3502 M5 adapter

Flash measurement cell

2 silicon photo diodes with collection lens on the camera base

Flash exposure compensation

Б}3EV in1⁄3EV increments

(in viewfinder only)

Using flash symbol LED

 

Viewfinder

Construction principle

Large, bright line frame viewfinder with automatic parallax compensation

Eye piece

Calibrated to -0.5 dpt.; corrective lenses from -3 to +3 diopter available

Image field limiter

By activating two bright lines each: For 35 and 135mm, or for 28 and 90mm, or for 50 and 75mm; automatic switching when lens is attached.

Parallax compensation

The horizontal and vertical difference between the viewfinder and the lens is automatically compensated according to the relevant distance setting, i.e. the viewfinder bright-line automatically aligns with the subject detail recorded by the lens

Matching viewfinder and

actual image

At a range setting of 2m, the bright-line frame size corresponds exactly to the sensor size of approx. 23.9 x 35.8mm; at infinity setting, depending on the focal length, approx. 7.3% (28mm) to 18% (135mm) more is recorded by the sensor than indicated bythe corresponding bright line frame and slightly less for shorter distance settings than 2m

Magnification

(For all lenses) 0.73 x

Long-base

rangefinder

Split or superimposed image range finder shown as a bright field in the centre of the viewfinder image

Effective

metering base

50.6mm (mechanical measurement basis 69.31mm x viewfinder magnification 0.73x)

 

Displays

In the viewfinder

Four-digit digital display with dots above and below

On back

3" colour TFT LCD monitor with 16 million colours and 1,036,800 pixels, approx. 100 % image field, glass cover of extremely

hard, scratch-resistant Gorilla. glass, colour space: sRGB, for Live-View and review mode, displays

 

 

 

Shutter and shutter release 

Shutter

Metal blade focal plane shutter with vertical movement

Shutter speeds

For aperture priority: (A) continuous from 125s to 1⁄4000s.,

for manual adjustment: 8s to 1⁄4000s in half steps, from 8s to 125s in whole steps, B: For long exposures up to maximum 125s (in

conjunction with self-timer T function, i.e. 1st release = shutter opens, 2nd release = shutter closes),

(1⁄180s): Fastest shutter speed for flash synchronization, HSS linear flash mode possible with all shutter speeds faster than

1⁄180s (with HSS-compatible Leica system flash units)
