Leica M10-R Digital Rangefinder Camera Black Chrome
Leica M10-R Digital Rangefinder Camera Black Chrome Summary
Leica’s purist approach to photography has culminated in the M10-R Digital Rangefinder Camera (Type 6376) which is seen here in classic black chrome colour. This camera represents another huge leap forward with extensive developments in useability and image quality from a new full-frame CMOS colour sensor which delivers 40.89 megapixels of stunning detail. Advanced Dual Gain sensor technology allows the sensor to capture a broader dynamic range as well as boasting excellent low light performance with a native ISO of 100-50,000. New body haptics provide sensory feedback whilst the photographer is immersed in the sophisticated experience which this light 660g compact model provides.
When this camera is combined with high quality APO models in the Leica M System lens range, the details from the high resolution sensor shine with the M10-R Rangefinder delivering stunning image quality. The allmetal and brass body is also designed to provide photographers with a lifetime of reliable and versatile service. The body is manufactured in Germany and embraces useability and ergonomics from previous generations of M10 rangefinders while pushing technology further than ever. It sports a completely silent shutter, ideal for many shooting situations from street photography and portraits to weddings, whilst providing intuitive touchscreen useability and familiar dials with a three button layout.
• Newly developed 40 megapixel sensor
• Enhanced compact M10 camera body design
• Sophisticated ergonomics and haptic feedback
• Silent shutter
• Class leading low light performance
Leica Rangefinders are highly desirable cameras which provide users with a refined, immersive shooting experience steeped in decades of manufacturing history. The black chrome M10-R continues this trend whilst also delivering highly advanced, class-leading specifications. The wide dynamic range of the new sensor and broad ISO capabilities allow photographers to continue working throughout any low light situations, capturing stunning high resolution detail that this level of digital photography provides. The silent shutter and light, compact body enable this system to be used discreetly anywhere at any time, particularly when combined with new haptic feedback from the body. Images are swiftly processed by the latest Leica Maestro II processor and stored on an SD card.
New features broaden the appeal of the M10-R and include longer shooting times of up to 16 minutes. The responsive high resolution touch display is simple to use and detailed with 1,036,800 pixels (also found in the M10-P) while the Rangefinder system provides seamless connection with Leica FOTOS for quick and easy sharing. Wifi connectivity and an optional GPS viewfinder ensures that photographers can share their images wherever they may be travelling. Familiar ergonomics and a huge range of compatible M System lenses provide lucky owners with a lifetime of enjoyable photographic service, shared with some of the most notable photographers in the world.

Storage media: SD cards up to 2GB/SDHC cards up to 32GB/SDXC cards up to 2TB
Exposure metering: Exposure metering through the lens (TTL), with working aperture
Metering method: Light reflected by the blades of the 1 shutter curtain onto measuring cell.
Metering range: At room temperature and normal humidity for ISO 200, at aperture 1.0 EV-2 to EV19 at aperture 32. Flashing of the left triangular LED in the viewfinder indicates values below the metering range
Sensitivity range: ISO 100 to ISO 50.000, adjustable in 1/3 ISO increments, choice of automatic control or manual setting

Flash sync time: 1/180 s; slower shutter speeds can be used, if working below sync speed:
Construction principle: Large, bright line frame viewfinder with automatic parallax compensation
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 and 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
