If you're a Leica fan, then the chances are that you are fondest of the Leica M family of rangefinder cameras - so when an addition to that brood comes along, you know the product is going to be hugely exciting.
The Leica M10 is just that - setting numerous firsts for Leica M digital rangefinders. It is the slimmest yet; the first to feature an ISO dial and the first to include wireless connectivity.
With its heritage formed in the film camera days, the new ISO dial ensures that controls for image composition can all be manually set and controlled. A minimalistic rear sees just a few buttons and a control joystick.
The difference between film and digital photography tends to be the way you 'think' about the photo, when you have manual dials and controls you relive that style of photography.
We haven't even started on the brains of the operation - with an all new image sensor developed specifically for the M10, in the form of a 24MP full-frame CMOS sensor combining with the Maestro II image processor and 2GB Buffer.
This marriage of eyes and mind ensures that the highest image quality, as expected from a Leica camera, is possible - and with that large buffer, a continuous shooting mode 5fps is achieved.
When it is a Leica camera you know that certain boxes are going to be ticked - image quality and style are always a Leica expectation, the M10 builds upon these expectations by adding modern technologies, and the inbuilt WLAN module is a sign of moving with the times whilst keeping the looks strictly retro.
The Leica M-App enables image transfer between phone and camera - and those with an iOS device can rejoice that the latest OS will be able to handle DNG files. The application also lets you remotely control your M10, meaning you can get some delicious long exposures without having to risk camera shake via shutter pressing. Although if I were you, I wouldn't be leaving this camera lonely on a tripod. I'd be holding it, cuddling it and delighting in every essence of just what this camera is capable of.
