Full Leica M10-R Specs, Coming on July 16

By on

Here are the full specifications of the Leica M10-R camera. According to latest rumors, Leica will soon announce a new Leica M10-R camera and official announcement is expected to happen on July 16th.

The Leica M10 Monochrom is the first black-and-white camera of the Leica M-system The new sensor has lowered the base ISO from 320 to 160, and Leica also claims an improvement in dynamic range. The camera works with all Leica M-Bayonet mount lenses, and features an ISO range of ISO160 to ISO100,000.

There will be two available colors: black and silver. The new M10-R will feature 4089MP sensor and the price will stand at $8,295.

Storage media : SD cards up to 2GB/SDHC cards up to 32GB/SDXC cards up to 2TB
Menu languages : German, English, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese,
Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Russian, Korean
Exposure metering : Exposure metering through the lens (TTL), with working aperture
Metering method : Light reflected by the blades of the 1 shutter curtain onto measuring cell
Metering range :
・At room temperature and normal humidity for ISO 200, at aperture 1.0 EV-2 to EV19 at
aperture 32
・Flashing of the left triangular LED in the viewfinder indicates values below the metering
range
Sensitivity range : ISO 100 to ISO 50.000, adjustable in 1/3 ISO increments, choice of
automatic control or manual setting
Exposure modes : Choice of automatic shutter speed control with manual aperture
pre-selection (aperture priority A), or manual shutter speed and aperture setting
Flash unit attachment : Via accessory shoe with central and control contacts
Synchronization : Optionally triggered at the 1st or 2nd shutter curtain
Flash sync time :
・1/180 s; slower shutter speeds can be used
・ If working below sync speed:Automatic changeover to TTL linear flash mode with
HSS-compatible Leica system flash units
Flash exposure metering : Using center-weighted TTL pre-flash metering with Leica flash
units (SF40, SF64, SF26), or flash units compatible with the system with SCA3502 M5 adapter
Flash measurement cell : 2 silicon photo diodes with collection lens on the camera base
Flash exposure compensation : ±3EV in1⁄3EV increments
Displays in flash mode (in viewfinder only) : Using flash symbol LED
Construction principle : Large, bright line frame viewfinder with automatic parallax
compensation
Eye piece : Calibrated to -0.5 diopter; 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 : 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) : 0.73x
Long-base rangefinder : Split or superimposed image range finder shown as a bright field in
the center of the viewfinder image
Effective metering base : 50.6mm (mechanical measurement basis 69.31mm x viewfinder
magnification 0.73x)
In the viewfinder : Four-digit digital display with exposure alerts above and below
On back : 3-inch color TFT LCD monitor with 16 million colors and 1,036,800 pixels, approx.
100% image field, glass cover of extremely hard, scratch-resistant Gorilla glass, color space:
sRGB, for Live-View and review mode, displays
Shutter : Metal blade focal plane shutter with vertical movement
Shutter speeds :
・For aperture priority:(A) continuous from 16min to 1⁄4000s, for manual adjustment: 8s to
1⁄4000s in half steps, from 8s to 16min in half steps, B: For long exposures up to maximum
16min (in conjunction with self-timer T function, i.e. 1st release = shutter opens, 2nd release =
shutter closes), (1⁄180s): Fastest shutter speed for flash synchronization, HSS linear flash
mode possible with all shutter speeds faster than 1⁄180s (with HSS-compatible Leica system
flash units)
Picture series : Approx. 4.5 pictures/sec
Shutter release button : Two-stage, 1st step: Activation of the camera electronics including
exposure metering and exposure lock (in aperture priority mode), 2nd step: Shutter release;
standard thread for cable release integrated.
Self-timer : Delay optionally 2s (aperture priority and manual exposure setting) or 12s, set in
menu, indicated by flashing LED on front of camera and corresponding display in monitor.
Turning the camera on/off : Using main switch on top of camera; optional automatic shutdown
of camera electronics after approx. 2/5/10 minutes; reactivated by tapping the shutter release
Power supply : 1 Lithium-ion rechargeable battery, nominal voltage 7.4V, capacity 1100mAh;
maximum charging current/voltage: DC 1000mA, 7.4V
Charger :
・Inputs : 100-240V AC, 50/60Hz, 300mA, automatic switching, or 12V DC, 1.3A
・Output : DC 7.4V, 1000mA/max. 8.25V, 1100mA
GPS (only with Leica Visoflex viewfinder attached, available as an accessory) : Optional (not
available everywhere due to country-specific legislation, i.e. enforced automatic shutdown in
those countries), data are written to EXIF header in picture files.
Wi-Fi : Complies with IEEE 802.11b/g/n standard (standard Wi-Fi protocol), channel 1-11,
encryption method: Wi-Fi-compatible WPA/WPA2 encryption, access method: Infrastructure mode

Material : All-metal die cast magnesium body, synthetic leather covering. Brass top panel and
base, black chrome plated finish
Image field selector : Allows the bright-line pairs to be manually activated at any time (e.g. to
compare detail)
Tripod thread : 1/4-inch DIN stainless steel in bottom
Operating conditions : 0 to 40-degree-C
Interfaces : ISO accessory shoe with additional contacts for Leica Visoflex viewfinder
(available as an accessory)
Finish : Black chrome(20002), Silver chrome(20003)
