AII the M 1 O family advantages combined in one camera
• Newly developed 40 Megapixel color sensor
• Thin M 10 body design
• Sophisticated, from body haptics to the interface design
• Silent shutter
• Excellent craftsmanship Made in Germany
AII the features of the M 10 family, that photographers benefit from and love are combined in the new Leica M 10-R.
The best M sensor ever made.
A brand new pixel design results in a completely new M-Sensor, that is exclusively developed to unleash the full optical performance of Leica M lenses.
40.89 Millon pixeis show even the finest details.
The excellent high ISO performance
(ISO 100 up to ISO 50000) and the dynamic range surpasses all predecessor cameras.
Higher resolution and better low-light performance for an impressive image quality.
Technical background information about the new sensor
~10% more resolution compared to 24MP without scarifying ISO performance. How was this achieved?
• New Pixel design: Optimised light-sensitive area by reduced space requirement of the non-light-sensitive area on the pixel used for contrai electronics.
• The pixeis can capture 10% more photons compareci with the M 10 24MP design resulting in increased dynamic range.
• The electrical signal is amplified by a "Dual Gain Technology" directly at the pixel for better noise performance at all higher ISO levels (effective from ISO 125).
• Further optimisation for high incident angles for better M lens performance by more symmetrical pixel design.
The dimensions and ideal ergonomics of analogue M models is what makes the M 1 O family a beloved piece of gear for many photographers around the world.
Sophisticated, from body haptics to the interface design.
Every single component and every technical solution in the Leica M 10-R concentrates uncompromisingly on photography.
Tlhe three button layout on the back of the camera with its intuitive touchscreen and the ISO setting dial got familiar to photography enthusiasts who want to concentrate on the act of taking extraordinary pictures.
Handling and usability are key features of the new Leica M 10-R.
The silent shutter: A unique feature first presented in the M 10-P.
Discretion counts among the most distinctive qualities of all M cameras.
ln analogue times, many theatres only allowed M cameras for capturing performance stills, arguing that the mirrar slap of a mirrar reflex camera would disturb actors and audience alike.
The silent shutter of the M 10-R supports the unobtrusiveness, that M-Photography is known for.

Leica Camera AG I Viewfinder
Construction principle Large, bright line frame viewfinder with automatic parallax compensation
Eye piece 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 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
Magnification (For all lenses) 0.73 x
Long-base rangefinder Split or superimposed image range finder shown as a bright field in the centre of the viewfinder image
Effective metering base 50.6mm (mechanical measurement basis 69.31mm x viewfinder magnification 0.73x)
