Leica M10-P Overview

  • 1Description

Distinguished by its sleekness and simplicity, the black chrome Leica M10-P is a digital rangefinder camera that blends enhanced still imaging capabilities with an updated, pared-down appearance as well as the quietest shutter of any film or digital M-series camera. Utilizing a redeveloped 24MP full-frame CMOS sensor and Maestro II image processor, the M10-P yields high-resolution imagery with an extended dynamic range, high sensitivity to ISO 50000, and a continuous shooting rate of 5 fps. Akin to its sibling model, the M10, the M10-P features a slim body profile reminiscent of M film cameras, and the larger 0.73x-magnification optical viewfinder allows for greater composition and focusing accuracy. The body design also incorporates a dedicated ISO dial for quick adjustment, even when the camera is turned off, and the rear 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD features a Gorilla Glass cover to guard against scratching and light impacts. Also contributing to durability, the top and bottom plates are constructed from brass and the chassis is built from magnesium alloy to realize a robust physical construction for long-lasting use. Additionally, the M10-P also sports an integrated Wi-Fi module for wireless sharing and remote camera control from a linked mobile device.

Leica M10-P
Taking the M10 to more inconspicuous places, the M10-P is a sleek evolution of the pared-down, simple camera system. In addition to the film camera-inspired nature of its sibling model, including the slim body design, high-magnification optical viewfinder, and omission of video recording, the M10-P gains a redesigned shutter that makes it the quietest of all film and digital M cameras. The M10-P is also characterized by a rear touchscreen LCD, for intuitive settings and playback control; a built-in level gauge, for perfectly aligning compositions in-camera; and the omission of the front red dot, for a more unobtrusive appearance.
24MP CMOS Sensor and Maestro II Processor
A redeveloped full-frame 24MP CMOS sensor pairs with the Maestro II image processor to deliver a wide dynamic range with notable color rendering, as well as enhanced sensitivity from ISO 100-50000 to suit working in a variety of lighting conditions. The image processor also incorporates a 2GB buffer to afford fast continuous shooting at 5 fps for up to 40 consecutive frames in a burst.
Optical Viewfinder and Rangefinder
The optical viewfinder is a large, bright-line 0.73x-magnification rangefinder with automatic parallax compensation and bright-line frame lines, which are set to match the image sensor size at a focusing distance of 6.6'. On the front of the camera, a viewfinder frame selector can also be used to manually change the apparent image field to help visualize the scene with varying focal lengths; options are available in 35mm/135mm, 28mm/90mm, and 50mm/75mm focal length pairs.

The rangefinder mechanism displays split or superimposed bright field images within the center of the viewfinder to benefit accurate manual focusing control. The effective rangefinder metering basis is 50.6mm (mechanical metering basis 69.31 mm x viewfinder magnification of 0.73x).
Body Design and Built-In Wi-Fi
  • Slim body profile is reminiscent of Leica's film cameras for easier handling and manipulation.
  • Integrated ISO dial is featured on the top plate to permit simple and direct adjustment of sensitivity values, even when the camera is turned off.
  • The rear of the camera features just three buttons—live view, playback, and menu—for more simplified and intuitive navigation of the camera's control-set.
  • A programmable Favorites menu can be used, which allows you to define your most oft-used settings and select them for easy, one-touch access.
  • 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD provides an intuitive means for image playback as well as live view shooting.
  • Rear LCD monitor has a Corning Gorilla Glass cover to protect it against scratching and impacts.
  • Built-in level gauge aids in achieving perfectly level horizons.
  • Top and bottom plates are machined from solid blocks of brass and the chassis is built from magnesium alloy for a truly durable, hard-wearing physical construction.
  • Rubber seals are used to prevent the entrance of light rain and dust to enable working in inclement conditions.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi permits sharing imagery directly to a linked smartphone and also enables remote control over the M10-P to adjust select shooting parameters or to release the shutter via the Leica M app.
Other Camera Features
  • When working in live view, focus peaking is available to highlight edges of contrast for easier, more precise manual focus adjustment.
  • Designed to accept all M-mount lenses, Leica R-mount lenses are also compatible through the use of an optional R to M adapter.
  • Compatible with the optional Visoflex accessory electronic viewfinder for manually focusing adapted lenses.
  • Images can be recorded in either the DNG or JPEG file format.
  • A top hot shoe permits working with an external flash and the top sync speed is 1/180 sec.
  • Language support: German, English, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Russian, and Korean.

    Leica M10-P Reviews

    M10-P Digital Rangefinder Camera (Black Chrome) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful camera i have a m9p, m9m, sl and now the m10p. i got a m240p when both my m9s were off for a very long time for sensor replacement and an sl shortly later. i never got as comfortable with the m240p as i have with each of my other leicas, especially with the evf lag. i now carry the m10p, sl and m9m and am ready for any situation. the m9p was my first digital leica and for a certain look, especially color rendition, i wont ever let it go even if i dont use it much. the m10p has the best rangefinder view of the 3 i have now, the most intuitive controls, wonderful detail, ease of use and also with either live view or evf, quiet shutter (i mean no attraction to my photographing at all) and overall as good an end photo as my sl.  the level and touch screen are also welcomed additions. i like hand-grips on all my rangefinders and got the really right stuff one which both saved money and works well as both a handgrip and tripod mount. if i could have just two leicas it would definitely be a m10p and a sl and the m10p if only one.....with apologies to my m9s. i buy all my cameras and lenses from b&h for the customer service, refund policy if needed and, well, no sales tax.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, Leica nailed it! Leica M photographer since the M6 (still I’m only in y early 50s), I owned all M bodies generation since then along the necessary Hasselblad and Nikon systems. Leica M system is not a do-it -all camera, but it is really at ease when one us looking for a high end manual portable system. I use it to document my explorations and travels. Now the M10-P. It has all the benefits of the M10: back to the legendary M body size, the best rangefinder optical viewfinder ever produced, and a very capable sensor that really works well in very low light (much better than the M240). The P adds (1) a stable, easy and reliable WiFi raw (DNG) file transfer to my iPad (still impossible to do from my Nikon Z7 or D850!). With Abide Lightroom mobile on the new iPad Pro, raw processing is a delight. (2) a reliable touch screen (double tap for instant 100% focus checking - perfect). (3) The first mirorless now get an optional EVF that works very well and is top quality. (4) this EVF has Integrated GPS that works much better than the Nikon/Panasonic Bluetooth connexion to your smartphone. No messy setting, your files are just tagged. Finally, the 3 buttons and the user interface is simple, fast, and easy to use unlike anything on the market. Well-done Leica!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Camera and Great Service It took me two tries, but it was worth it. My first one had a number of defects. The bottom plate was defective out of the box. I had to travel to Boston the next morning so I brought it to the Leica dealer there. They swapped a plate from the demo camera and it worked. Tried to attach a Visoflex. That only worked if you moved the Visoflex back and forth on the hot shoe until it made a connection. Finally we took a few test shots in the store and saw that there was a horizontal line through all the pictures meaning a bad sensor. When I returned home I brought it back to B&H. They exchanged it for a new camera with zero problem. The new camera works great with no issues. I never understood the idea of less is more. Ive always wanted the latest tech in all my cameras. I get it now. This camera forces you to slow down and think about the creation of the photo. It took me a few weeks to really appreciate manual focus. I hadnt used a manual focus camera since my old Canon AE-1. I would recommend anyone who thinks they need autofocus to give yourself some time and develop the muscle memory. This is now my primary camera for everything other than fast action. I love the look of the photos out of this camera!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is what the M-Digital is supposed 2B when M8 was launched It is simple, direct, non-lagging (finally), silent and easier to use I waited for the MP version of the M10 since they launched it 2017 Jan 18th, I am glad I waited I had been using Leica Digital M's since they launched the M8, and I still keep each one of them except the MP240 due to lagging issues in operations I own about 30 Leica/Leitz lenses, (mostly vintage), and to fully appreciate what Leica is about, we have to dig deep into the history of the the company thru its products of the past, I own pre-war lenses from the 30's and 50's (1st gen M mounts) to the 80's and 90's then the recent ones, so it makes good sense to own yet another Leica M digital body, that brings out the best of those lenses, PROS The most significant difference in Operations is the touch screen locating of the focused zone, you no longer have to rely on the direction key to move it, all you need is to double tab to activate the zoom, it also moves to the extreme edges of the frame, unlike the M240, which locks in the centre of the frame for a 10x and 5x magnification, another mostly mentioned upgrade is the (more silent) shutter, which is nice to have CONS It lacks video, which is actually useful, you may not shoot videos a lot, but it sure helps when you try to record how your vintage lenses react to light entering at different angles, as the vintage lenses of the old days, do react more drastically compare to more modern ones, and experienced leica users do care about how they manage their aperture settings when they feel there's ghosting and flares modern lenses tend to suppress light a lot more when it comes to ghosting and flares, with the help of coating and more advanced optical designs, but the result is a lens that leans towards a more clinical result, which lacks character, a great example of such would be the relaunch of the Thambar 9cm f2.2, as it tries to relive the legend's reputation, by going back to way less corrections, but the old lens still is more preferable in the Bokeh (which users of this lens care about) it's getting rather long, so I just end it here, this camera brings out the best in our M lenses, and it's worth that money to get one, the SL is not a range finder, and its slow in operation as it doesn't focus with a range finder, try to stop down any lens to f5.6 and focus accurately on the SL, you will find you have to go back to it's larger aperture settings (f1.4-f2) to hit thin focus, and stop back down, while the Range finder lacks absolute accuracy, it focuses with speed, which is better suited with M lenses on the street

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is what the M-digital should be when the M8 was launched in 2006 Waited since 2018 Jan 18th, for the MP version, and it's worthy of the wait, the double tapping in LV to magnify was a breeze compare to previous zooming method (which starts in the middle of the frame, then moved to a desired area of the frame, to achieve accurate focus) This is the biggest difference operation-wise, other than the mostly reported silent shutter (the other pleasing change) I would say the M10P is a fine improvement over a already good product that "finally" live up to the "Leica" brand name I had used every Digital M since the M8 and still keep all of them except the M240 I have about 30 Leitz vintage lenses, from 1930's to current models, and I need the ultimate M that can bring out the best of them, I use the SL as well, but it is not a range finder, and that makes my M lenses slower in use (focusing) If you waited for the M10P You know what you waited for, the improvements were cherries on top of the already sweet cake One thing you can consider a short coming, it doesn't shoot video, I enjoy shooting videos on the SL, as I can run test on various vintage lenses and RECORD how each lens differ from one another when the light enters the sensor from a different angle, something you would care about if you are keen on your vintage Leica lenses, as they are very sensitive to light, modern lenses are much more suppressive due to coating and all the new tech to suppress ghosting and flares And in my humble opinion, you only know Leica when you go back into Leica history and shoot their vintage lenses from screw mount lenses to 1st gen M mounts, to 80's and 90's and the latest..... It's a bit long, so I will end it here
