LEICA RELEASES M10-P RANGEFINDER
New model said to have the quietest shutter of any M-series camera
Leica has followed up last year’s M10 release with a new M10-P variant. An even more premium version of the
M10, the M10-P adheres to much the same idea as that camera, with the same 24MP fullframe sensor, M lens mount and the classic style synonymous with the range, together with rangefinder focusing.
It does, however, offer a touchscreen – a feature absent from the M10 – with the display itself still bearing the 3in dimensions and 1.04 million-dot resolution of its sibling.
On the inside, photographers can also now call upon an electronic spirit level to keep horizons straight, and the camera also boasts a shutter mechanism that’s said to be the quietest in the M-series camera to date. Other features include 5fps burst shooting, wireless connectivity, focus peaking and a metal hot shoe cover.
The new model is only Leica’s second camera to be announced this year, following the C-Lux compact camera that was unveiled in June.
The M10-P is available now, in both black chrome and silver chrome options, with an asking price of £6,500/$7,995. The M10 will continue to be sold alongside the new arrival.
