LE­ICA RE­LEASES M10-P RANGEFINDER

New model said to have the qui­etest shut­ter of any M-se­ries cam­era

Digital Photograper - - News -

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.
