    The Leica M10 Monochrom with 40MP

    The Leica M10 Monochrom opens the door to a new dimension of black-and-white photography. Equipped with a newly developed image sensor, the camera delivers an extremely high-quality rendition with breathtaking detail resolution. The absence of a color filter array and exceedingly high sensor resolution of 40 megapixels result in an unprecedented depiction of even the finest details, along with an exceptionally natural-looking sharpness.

    The new M10 Monochrom and its high-resolution sensor represent an uncompromising commitment to classic black-and-white photography, which has now been elevated to an entirely new level of image quality. No other camera consolidates the most fundamental of all photographic practices — the composition of images using only contrast and light — with a recording quality that can only be achieved with state-of-the-art methods of engineering and construction.

    Improved detail rendition for greater image quality

    The Leica M10 Monochrom occupies a special place within the M-System: its newly developed image sensor is designed exclusively for gray scale recordings and offers exceptional fine-detail rendition thanks to its exceedingly high, 40-megapixel resolution. The fact that no color filter arrays are required means that there are fewer glass and filter layers to impede the transmission of light or cause deflections. This is especially advantageous in a traditional rangefinder camera, and results in decreased, finer-grained image noise. In addition, the sensor’s enormous sensitivity range of ISO 160 to ISO 100,000 enables recordings with an extremely broad dynamic range – yielding images whose areas of shadow and illumination are clearly defined, particularly when shooting in uneven, high-contrast light.

    Understated and discreet for low-profile shooting

    The Leica M10 Monochrom is the epitome of discretion — which is why Leica chose to omit the familiar, and potentially eye-catching, red dot. In a similar vein, the “Leica M10 Monochrom” inscription on the top plate is considerably more subtle. The strict omission of any color-inlaid engravings further emphasizes the camera’s monochrome character. The camera shutter is barely audible, enabling recordings in situations in which other cameras would be too obtrusive. Thanks to its understated appearance, the M10 Monochrom allows photographers to blend into the crowd and capture their subjects without drawing attention.

    A reliable companion – Made in Germany

    The Leica M10 Monochrom is hand-crafted by accomplished specialists using superior-quality materials and elaborate methods of engineering. For example, the camera’s top and base plates are neither stamped nor molded, but milled from solid blocks of brass. Due to its robust construction, the Leica M10 Monochrom can weather even the toughest external conditions. ‘Made in Germany’ guarantees the utmost quality, reliability and durability, ensuring long-term value and functionality. After all, a Leica is not just a camera, but represents a worthwhile, life-long investment.

    Utilizing the full scope of the camera’s capability

    With its high-resolution image sensor and faithful detail rendition, the Leica M10 Monochrom has significantly raised the bar in terms of camera quality and performance. This, in turn, means that only equally high-capacity lenses will be able to utilize all of the camera’s performance reserves. Leica’s M lenses — globally recognized as the world’s best full-frame lenses — are the perfect match for the Leica M10 Monochrom, giving rise to an exceptionally high-performance combination.
