A New Level of Understated Excellence
The Leica M10-P takes the traditional understatement of the M series to a new level. Connoisseurs will appreciate the fine distinctions between the M10-P and the M10. These include the quietest shutter of any M camera ever – a seemingly minor detail that can nevertheless make the difference between a good picture, and a great one.
The prominent red dot on the front of the camera, masked with tape by many pro photographers for added stealth, has been omitted. Instead the camera features unobtrusive Leica lettering on the top plate. In terms of construction and materials, the M10-P naturally meets the same superior standards as its sister models – making it an ideal choice for photographers with an eye for the extraordinary.
Leica Camera is proud to introduce the Leica M10-P
The newest, most inconspicuous addition to the Leica M series.
The new Leica M10-P separates itself from other digital cameras with its almost inaudible mechanical shutter release and omission of the classic red-dot logo to covertly capture candid moments.
Exceptionally discreet, the M10-P embodies the essence of the M philosophy and raises the traditional subtlety of the M series to an unprecedented level. The most notable feature of the Leica M10-P speaks volumes to the core philosophy of the M series, yet it is virtually silent to the ear. At the heart of this camera is the newly designed shutter, making the M10-P the quietest of all digital and analog M cameras ever made. Moments requiring utmost discretion can be captured unobtrusively with the nearly silent, fast and slim M10-P. The design of the Leica M10-P is classically minimalist, featuring only subtle Leica lettering on its top plate, and omitting the Leica red dot logo or any branding on the front.
With the M10-P, Leica debuts a touch-function for the M-System, enabling faster checking of focus in Live-View and Playback modes and convenient contemporary touchscreen controls such as swiping and pinch-to-zoom.
The M10-P further assists photographers in capturing a perfectly framed and level shot, thanks to its built-in Level Gauge. This time-saving feature helps photographers get their perfect shot, right at the press of the shutter.
All other features, functions, build quality and finishing of the Leica M10-P match the same high standards of its sibling model, the Leica M10. Rounding out that high-level design, the M10-P also comes with a color-matched metal hot shoe cover, giving the top plate a seamless look and sleek style. Compact, pared down and discrete, the M10-P’s design perfectly reflects the ethos of M cameras: provide photographers the right tools to unobtrusively capture important moments from the rich tapestry of life.
New levels of control
The First M with Touch Functionality
Every aspect of a Leica M is dedicated to concentrating on what is essential: taking pictures. Consequently, the M10-P offers state-of-the-art technology solely to augment this philosophy.
The new display with touch functionality allows for faster and more fluid control of the focus position in Live View and Playback modes, along with more convenient browsing of photos during Playback.
