With the new Leica M10-R, Leica Camera AG introduces a high-resolution variant of the company’s legendary rangefinder camera. The M10-R’s newly developed sensor offers a resolution of over 40 megapixels, which represents a substantial increase compared to the M10. As a result, the M10-R delivers a significantly enhanced rendition of details.
The new sensor of the M10-R exposes a number of possibilities that are unprecedented within M photography. alongside the clear visibility of even the best details, the sensor provides extensive performance reserves for cropping and bigger formats. Additionally, the contrast-rich rendition of subtle structures results in a good lower risk of moiré patterns. The M10-R is therefore compatible for landscape and architectural photography.
Despite its high resolution, the M10-R offers significantly reduced image noise also as a wider dynamic range. The M10-R completes the Leica M10 family, which also includes the M10, M10-P, M10-D and M10 Monochrom.
The M10-R’s base sensitivity of ISO 100 and goes up to ISO 50000. the utmost exposure time has been increased to 16 minutes, enabling extraordinary night-time shots with the utilization of a tripod. The Leica M10-R is provided with an equivalent shutter because of the Leica M10-P. it’s not only exceptionally quiet (allowing for an unobtrusive way of working), but also operates with minimal vibration. This reduces the danger of camera shake.
As with all of Leica’s rangefinder cameras, the development of the M10-R involves an outsized proportion of manual assembly by highly trained specialists, administered at the company’s production plant in Wetzlar. This ensures that the massive number of mechanical components – like the complex rangefinder – not only perform with the utmost precision but also are particularly robust. A Leica M is synonymous with the utmost reliability and sturdiness, making it a viable long-term investment.
The Leica M10-R is best ready to reach its full potential when paired with Leica M lenses. Equally, the camera has the capacity to completely utilize the outstanding imaging performance that distinguishes this legendary lens range. Particularly together with the most recent generation, like the APO-Summicron-M 50 f/2 ASPH., the M10-R delivers photographs of very exceptional quality. At an equivalent time, the camera emphasizes the distinctive characteristics of older M lenses cherished by photography enthusiasts everywhere the planet.
