Hello Silence, my Old Friend ..
The M8 – seems like ancient history, eh? – was the breakthrough that proclaimed Leica relevant in the digital age. But this first digital M was a long way from matching the form and function of its film predecessors. While improvement has been noticeable in subsequent generations (M9, M240, M10 and others), the feel, intimacy and discreetness that made film Ms so desirable, was still lacking.
The wait is over! The new M10-P is the digital M with perfect form, function and discreetness. When I held the M10-P in my hands, looked through that extra bright and wide viewfinder and pressed the shutter, my heart skipped a beat. It feels even quieter and smoother than my M6! How did they do that? It’s smooth, quiet and oh-so-pleasant to the ear, but you better listen carefully or you'll miss it!
The M10-P brings other improvements over the M10. The much-missed levelling function? It’s back. The new firmware includes other practical features like a touch screen that can control the light meter and image magnification. But at the end of the day, it’s that quiet shutter that will make you fall in love with the M experience all over again.
Leica has quietly achieved perfection to the power of 2. The M10-P is like reuniting with an old friend: no need for talk or noise, it just feels good to be together again! The M10-P, Perfektion to the Power of 2 - Jean B.
Exceptionally discreet, the M10-P embodies the essence of the M philosophy and raises the traditional subtlety of the M series to an unprecedented level. The most notable feature of the Leica M10-P speaks volumes to the core philosophy of the M series, yet it is virtually silent to the ear. At the heart of this camera is the newly designed shutter, making the M10- P the quietest of all digital and analog M cameras ever made. Moments requiring utmost discretion can be captured unobtrusively with the nearly silent, fast and slim M10-P. The design of the Leica M10-P is classically minimalist, featuring only subtle Leica lettering on its top plate, and omitting the Leica red dot logo or any branding on the front.
With the M10-P, Leica debuts a touch-function for the M-System, enabling faster checking of focus in Live-View and Playback modes and convenient contemporary touchscreen controls such as swiping and pinch-to-zoom.
The M10-P further assists photographers in capturing a perfectly framed and level shot, thanks to its built-in Level Gauge. This time-saving feature helps photographers get their perfect shot, right at the press of the shutter.
All other features, functions, build quality and finishing of the Leica M10-P match the same high standards of its sibling model, the Leica M10. Rounding out that high-level design, the M10-P also comes with a color-matched metal hot shoe cover, giving the top plate a seamless look and sleek style. Compact, pared down and discrete, the M10-P’s design perfectly reflects the ethos of M cameras: provide photographers the right tools to unobtrusively capture important moments from the rich tapestry of life.
