Expanded Leica M10-R Digital Camera Body Key Features:
A Companion For Life
The Leica M10-R is built to be a trusted image-capturing companion for life. Constructed around its unique 40MP full-frame CMOS sensor, this camera body stands out from the M10 series for its longer exposure and high-resolution capabilities. It is both at home on the streets and in the wild, where the ISO 100-50000 range and low-noise shutter allow for a more intimate shooting experience. The camera body itself retains the slim form factor, vintage feel, and stripped-back design of the esteemed M10 series. With access to the full Leica lens lineup, you can begin to craft a composition that works uniquely to your preference - a gamechanger for the travel, fashion and lifestyle photographer.
The full-frame colour 40.89MP CMOS sensor combines with the Maestro II image processor to portray a wide dynamic range with quality colour saturation and contrast. The ISO 100-50000 is well-suited to deal with varying lighting conditions, still allowing for the sharpness and premium resolution of the sensor’s optical low-pass filter. You can also manipulate the viewfinder frame selector to manually change the image field, providing a visual guide with varying focal lengths. These include 35mm/135mm, 28mm/90mm, and 50mm/75mm focal length pairs.
Set to match the image sensor size at a clear focusing distance of 2m, the substantial, bright-line 0.73x-magnification rangefinder consists of an automatic parallax compensation and bright-line frame lines. Its mechanism displays superimposed bright field images central to the viewfinder to aid in manual focus control. This is further backed up by focus peaking within live view - highlighting edges of contrast to allow for pinpoint focus adjustments.
A Modern Take On Tradition
Leica are known for their vintage styling and intricate design. However, the M10-R effortlessly combines this with contemporary features such as its sharp 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD, built-in Wi-Fi capabilities, and access to the Lecia FOTOS app. The LCD is both large and bright, capable of both live display and image playback. You can then share your images directly to a linked smartphone or tablet - a great addition for image-makers looking to share snaps on social media, or to transform your device into an intuitive remote control. This allows you to adjust your shooting parameters, release the shutter and more - via the aforementioned FOTOS app.
The Story Behind ‘That’ Red Dot
Leica stands as one of the most prestigious names in photography, responsible for some of the most memorable photographs in collective memory. The first fully-functioning 35mm camera was in fact a Leica, changing the game for the artistic and journalistic mediums of photography. These values are still held to a high esteem at Leica, with that ever-recognisable logo sitting proudly upon the M10-R.
