When it comes to the perfect symbiosis of heritage values, design and state-of-the-art technology, there is no other than the Leica M system — and the M10 is the pinnacle of innovation within this family.
Modeled after the original, iconic Leica M, the M10 is the slimmest yet in the digital M range. The soft camera body creates a beautiful contrast to the durable, chrome-finished exterior, for an unforgettable hands-on experience and a secure grip.
The perfect ergonomics of this camera make it born to be held, and at 660g the M10 finds the perfect balance between compact lightness and robust density -- handling a camera has never felt this right.
Like the rest of the M family, the M10 is still assembled by hand in Germany to the highest standards of longevity and reliability and adding to its rarity on the market.
Ingenuitive engineering has combined full-sensor technology and rangefinder capabilities to allow the M10 manual focusing precision machined to a tolerance of 10 micrometers, which is the equivalent of one-sixth of the diameter of a human hair. This gives images shot on the M10 unparalleled sharpness that the Leica M range is known for, even in the most difficult low-light situations.
Unlike traditional DSLRs, the M10's 24-megapixel full-frame sensor sits right behind the lens. Light does not travel through a mirror, and the delay between releasing the shutter and capturing the shot is minimal.
Added to this, essential parameters such as ISO, aperture, shutter speed and distance can be manually adjusted while the camera is switched off. The photographer can thereby prepare for fleeting moments and be sure that when the shutter strikes, the decisive second is captured.
An integrated Wi-Fi mode is compatible with the Leica FOTOS App and allows the user to remotely control the camera and instantly transfer images to their phone.
The M10 brings authentic, handmade precision and uncompromisingly high quality of images.

What are the dimensions of the Leica M10?
Many photographers who appreciate the dimensions of analogue M-Models due to their ideal ergonomics and perfect fit in the hands expressed their wishes for precisely this for digital M- Cameras. To fulfil these wishes, the dimensions of the M10 are now identical to those of analogue M-Cameras. With a top plate 4 mm thinner than that of its close relative, the Leica M (Type 240), and a resulting depth of only 33.7 mm, the Leica M10 is the slimmest digital M of all time.
In what ways has the viewfinder/rangefinder been improved?
From the very beginning, the ‘Messsucher’ (combined rangefinder/viewfinder) of the Leica M played an absolutely essential role. For the Leica M10, several important aspects of this legendary system combining a viewfinder and rangefinder have now been further improved. To improve the view of the subject, the field of view has been enlarged by 30% and the magnification factor has been increased to 0.73. Eye-relief – the optimum distance of the eye from the viewfinder eyepiece – has also been considerably increased. Thanks to a 50% increase in this distance, the viewfinder is much more comfortable to use, particularly for photographers who wear glasses.
How heavy is the Leica M10?
The Leica M10 weighs 660 grams (with the battery). It is, therefore, lighter than the Leica M (Type 240), Leica M-P (Type 240), Leica M Monochrom (Type 246) and the Leica M-D (Type 262).
Can the M10 also be focused on Live View?
The Live View function of the Leica M10 offers two convenient focusing methods. Focus Peaking automatically marks sharply focused edges as coloured lines and Live View offers the ability to magnify the subject on the monitor screen. For the first time, the section of the image to be magnified can also be freely selected. In the Leica M10, the visibility of the contrasting lines in Focus Peaking has been further improved against the previous generation and now enables even more convenient focusing assessment to ensure images with outstanding sharpness.
Does the M10 have a video mode?
In the case of the Leica M10, Leica consciously concentrates on what’s essential in photography – the picture. In line with this principle, and to further reduce the complexity of the handling concept and enable a slimmer form factor, Leica decided to not integrate video recording capability. Its predecessor, the Leica M (Type 240), offers you an option for capturing video.
Can settings still be changed when the camera is switched off?
All essential exposure parameters, such as focusing distance, shutter speed, aperture and ISO sensitivity, can also be set when the camera is switched off. This enables you to make settings in anticipation of the photographic situations you expect to encounter.
How many exposures can be made on a single battery charge?
A single battery charge is sufficient for around 210 exposures with the Leica M10 (measured according to the CIPA standard). The CIPA standard includes the use of Live View. Due to separate exposure metering electronics, this rises to around 500 exposures when only the rangefinder is used.
What are the advantages of DNG format?
DNG (Digital Negative) is the workflow standard developed by Adobe. DNG format is reliable and, what’s more important, is also future-proof. DNG is an essential component of a seamless photographic workflow from import and post-processing to export without any compression or loss of quality. DNG is fully supported by Adobe software applications.
