Leica Debuts New M10 Camera
Ka-ching ka-ching! Leica’s new M10 is out in the market!
The latest Leica M10 comes with a classic 24 megapixel full-frame sensor that is slimmer than its highly acclaimed predecessor, the Leica M. It’s a machine designed for precision to take pictures just like most other Leica’s M series cameras. It comes without an auto focus feature and isn’t equipped for video shooting.
The Leica M10 calls for immense patience and practice to master a sharp & well focussed image. You look through the optical peephole, line up two offset images through the viewfinder by adjusting the lens-mounted lever and when you’re satisfied by what you see through the viewfinder, you pop the shutter to capture your ideal shot.
With such detailing going into each shot, the Leica M10 isn’t ideal to shoot action & motion but with brilliant image quality, it makes for beautiful portraits, landscape and street shots.
In comparison to the M, the new feature introduced on the M10 is a physical ISO dial on the top of the camera. Thus now, the ISO, shutter speed & aperture parameters can be adjusted before even turning on the camera.
The M10 looks like it’s chiselled from magnesium alloy and it comes with a 3 inch LCD screen that allows you to envision how your image will look before capturing it. The interchangeable lens-camera delivers at the speed of 5fps on its continuous shooting mode. Its ISO goes up to 50,000.
All these amazing features aren’t all… there’s more! The M10 has an inbuilt Wi-Fi in order to transfer images and control your camera using your mobile device.
With so many outstanding features, you’re definitely set to lose some big bucks for this camera. Just like every other Leica cameras, the M10 isn’t remotely close to affordable. It’s as expensive as $6,595 and that is just for the camera body. The lens can range anywhere from $3,000 to $10,000, shooting up the final cost of the camera to at least $9,595.
But if you’re extremely impressed and have approximately $10,000 to invest or splurge, it’s available at your nearest Leica dealership.
