Leica Camera just announced the long-awaited third generation of its innovative black and white digital rangefinder cameras, the Leica M10 Monochrom. Based on the Leica M10-P platform, the M10 Monochrom brings a new level of resolution and performance to the M-System as well as black and white photography as a whole.
The Leica M10 Monochrom touts a brand new 40 megapixel full frame monochrome sensor that achieves new heights in sharpness, detail and resolution while also opening up newfound versatility with a lower base ISO of 160 and a higher maximum ISO of 100,000. With these new levels of performance, the M10 Monochrom is even more capable than its predecessors in any lighting scenarios while maintaining the film-like grain and beautiful contrast and sharpness it is known for, thanks to the removal of the color filter array from the sensor. The M10 Monochrom is the ideal camera for the most passionate and dedicated black and white photographers.
Features at a glance: – New 40mp full frame black and white sensor – ISO range of 160 – 100,000 – Silent mechanical shutter, touchscreen, thinner body design and ISO dial of M10-P platform – Leica FOTOS connectivity; first Monochrom to feature Wi-Fi – Monochromatic design aesthetic; white and gray engravings on the body, blacked-out shutter button and lens release button
The newly developed 40 megapixel sensor has been built from the ground up with the M10 Monochrom in mind, achieving new more versatile ISO performance. The removal of the color filter array ensures each pixel receives more light and no interpolation is needed, ensuring the highest quality black and white captures.
Leica Camera has released the Leica M10-P: an upgrade to the hugely successful M10 digital rangefinder.
Traditional “P” model styling cues are found on the Leica M10-P, along with a few great new features. The removal of the Leica red dot logo on the front of the camera and a classic Leica script engraving on the top plate are the main cosmetic changes. The big news is a redesigned mechanical shutter that is nearly silent, a touchscreen LCD for controlling playback and live view and integrated level gauge.
The Leica M10-P is priced at $7,995 ($700 more than the M10), comes in both black chrome and silver chrome and has already begun shipping in the USA. You can order yours today by giving us a call at 201-664-4113. We would be more than happy to help.
On May 1, 2018 Leica is increasing prices on a wide range of products by an average of about 5%. Affected products include most M bodies (film and digital), nearly all M lenses, the black Q, TL2, S (Typ 007), many S lenses and a few other items (66 in total). To quote Leica “this revision is necessary due to the current exchange rates and the increase in raw materials and production costs.” This does make sense, as every year about this time we tend to see some increases, designed to reflect the ever-rising costs involved with manufacturing hand-built products from exotic, expensive materials.
There are no increases within the SL-system, and recently announced products such as the Thambar-M 90mm, Noctilux-M 75mm, and CL are not affected. If you were thinking about the M10, best to grab one before months’ end as the price is going up $400. The black Q sees an increase of $245 (making it the same price as the silver Q) and TL2 bodies go up $245 as well. If you have any questions feel free to call or stop by the store and we will be more than happy to help.
