Ergonomic Changes

The first thing users will notice immediately is the camera’s size. Previous digital M models had a body that was somewhat thicker than film Ms, and some photographers needed to adjust the way they worked with the camera as a result. The M10’s body has been slimmed down and now rivals film M Leica cameras such as the M4 in size. This will promote better handling and should be widely welcomed by the Leica user community.

Leica also simplified the M10’s control layout. Instead of six buttons on the left side of the LCD monitor in the M Typ 240, the M10 has three larger buttons: LV (live view), Play and Menu. The camera retains the same four-way toggle/navigation switch on the right as well as the thumb wheel on the upper right corner.

Significantly, Leica added an ISO dial on the left side of the camera’s top plate, allowing users to quickly set ISO from 100-6400 by hand instead of by borrowing through menu options. The dial is placed where the rewind knob used to be on film models, and is designed to look like an M3-era rewind knob. Now, the three features that determine exposure—aperture, shutter speed, and ISO, have been placed at the photographer’s fingertips.

Improvements Under The Hood

Now let’s look at new and updated technology housed within the M10. A new 24MP full-frame CMOS sensor has developed especially for this camera. It features technologies that Leica claims will lead to significant improvements in dynamic range, color rendition, sharpness and resolution. The extended ISO range of 100-50,000 (improving on the M Typ 240’s 200-6,400 range) is said to include less noise at higher ISOs.

A new Maestro-II image processor has been employed to improve performance. Buffer memory has been doubled from 1 to 2GB, resulting in a high-speed frame rate up to 5fps and longer continuous shooting.

The M10 is the first Leica M camera to incorporate built-in Wi-Fi. Now photographers can send pictures to iOS devices wirelessly to be edited and shared online. A new iOS app, the Leica M-App, lets users remotely control the M10. Shutter speed, shutter release and other key features can be controlled through the app. Leica says an equivalent app for Android devices is in the works.

The M10 also offers customization via the new Favorites menu. This is a programmable menu in which the photographer defines personal preferences for the relevant parameters and can later access them at the press of a button. The settings can be easily changed and adapted to meet the needs of specific photographic situations at any time.

The optical rangefinder viewfinder’s field of view has been enlarged by 30 percent, with an increased magnification factor of 0.73x; a 50% eye-relief distance increase makes the camera easier for eyeglass wearers. A new optional Leica Visoflex (Typ 020) electronic viewfinder can provide live view at eye level at a stunning 2.4MP resolution. It also has an integrated GPS module.

Exposure Metering

Exposure metering through the lens (TTL), with working aperture;

Metering Principle/Method

For metering the light reflected by light blades of the 1st shutter curtain onto a measuring cell: Strong center-weighted; for metering on the sensor: Spot, center-weighted, multi-field metering

Metering Range

At room temperature and normal humidity for ISO 100, at aperture 1.0 EV-1 to EV20 at aperture 32. Flashing of the left triangular LED in the viewfinder indicates values below the metering range

Sensitivity Range

ISO 100 to ISO 50000, adjustable in 1/3 ISO increments from ISO 200, choice of automatic control or manual setting

Exposure Modes

Choice of automatic shutter speed control with manual aperture preselection - aperture priority A, or manual shutter speed and aperture setting

Flash Unit Attachment

Via accessory shoe with central and control contacts

Synchronization

Optionally triggered at the 1st or 2nd Shutter curtain

Flash Sync Time

= 1/180s; slower shutter speeds can be used, if working below sync speed: Automatic changeaover to TTL linear flash mode with HSS compatible Leica system flash units

Flash Exposure Metering

Using center-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

+/-3EV in 1/3EV increments

Displays in Flash Mode (Viewfinder)

Using flash symbol LED

Viewfinder

Large, bright line frame viewfinder with automatic parallax compensation

Eyepiece

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 & 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 by the corresponding bright line frame and slightly less for shorter distance settings than 2m

0.73x

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