    Product Description

    Due to the enormous demand for the Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) ‘Leitz Wetzlar’, launched in November 2019 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the founding of ‘Ernst Leitz Wetzlar’, Leica is now offering a second edition of the product version. The Leica M10 Monochrom ‘Leitz Wetzlar’ is now available as the successor to the M-Camera with a black-and-white image sensor featuring the traditional and extremely popular ‘Leitz Wetzlar’ engraving on the top plate.

    The Leica M10 Monochrom is the modern tool for photographers who make intentional use of the aesthetics of black-and-white photography to express their creativity. Its ultra-high-resolution, 40-megapixel black-and-white sensor assures exceptional imaging quality and delivers exposures with natural sharpness and previously unrivaled resolution of details in all lighting conditions.

    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 160 to ISO 100.000, adjustable in 1/3 ISO increments from ISO 160, choice of automatic control or manual setting

    speed and aperture setting
    Flash exposure
    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 photodiodes with a 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
    Eyepiece Calibrated to -0.5 dpt.; 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  The 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) 0.73 x
    Long-base rangefinder Split or superimposed image range finder shown as a bright field in the centre of the viewfinder image
    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  On back 3″ colour TFT LCD monitor with 16 million colours and 1,036,800 pixels, approx. 100 % image field, glass cover of extremely hard, scratch-resistant Gorilla® glass, colour space: sRGB, for Live-View and review mode, displays

    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)
