Inc: M Black Body (Typ 262) , 50mm F2.4 , SF40 Flash , Canvas Bag The new Leica M (Typ 262) is an additional M camera variation dedicated to the essence of M: Rangefinder photography, without Live View and video function The top plate is engineered from durable aluminium, which makes it around 100 grams lighter. High quality black anodized finish – fits perfectly to our M-Lenses (same finish) 24 MP-Still-CMOS sensor Leica Maestro processor ISO values of up to 6,400 scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass® 3" monitor with 921,600 pixels Made in Germany The Leica M (Typ 262) embodies the M-Philosophy in its purest form: with a focus on the essential functions for M-Photography and an intuitive handling concept, it is the most compact full-frame camera system and offers you access to lenses acknowledged as being the best in the world. It is the essence of M-Photography Distinctively functional lines lend the Leica M (Typ 262) the timeless character so typical of this camera. The top plate is engineered from durable aluminium, which makes it around 100 grams lighter. With an overall weight of 600 grams, it is even more ergonomic than its sister models. Further differences are the reduced size of the logo and the step at the end of the top plate. Design features that hark back to the Leica M9 It is a digital rangefinder camera that consciously offers less than that which is technically possible. Developed exclusively for rangefinder photography: therefore not offering extended functions like Live View and Video function. Offering only the essence of M Photography features makes it especially attractive for new M customers to step up from other camera systems. All controls and functions of the Leica M (Typ 262) are logically and ergonomically located exactly where the photographer expects them to be. For example, it allows fast manual focusing with the coupled rangefinder and the distance ring of the lens – just like every other M. Due to the omission of additional features like Live View and video capability, the menu is extremely lean and consists of only 2 pages. White Balance (WB) is set by a dedicated button on the back of the camera. The Leica M (Typ 262) features a shutter cocking system that is even quieter than that of its sister Models M and M-P (Typ 240) In single exposure mode, this enables a shutter release frequency of up to two frames per second. In continuous mode, the Leica M (Typ 262) has the same burst rate as its sister model and shoots up to three frames per second. The particularly low noise and compact size of the camera allows photographers to not only get close to the action, but to the heart of where it’s all happening Just like all other digital M-Cameras, the Leica M (Typ 262) captures images with a highresolution CMOS full-frame sensor. Its 24-megapixel resolution ensures exceptional imaging quality and extreme sensitivity – with ISO values of up to 6,400. This makes the Leica M (Typ 262) the ideal camera, particularly for shooting with available light. The resulting images are characterised by outstanding contrast, exceptional detail resolution and low image noise. At the same time, the camera’s Maestro processor guarantees fast processing of captured images and immediate readiness to shoot The generously dimensioned 3" monitor with a cover plate manufactured from tough, scratchresistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass® offers you complete control at all times. With a resolution of 921,600 pixels, it enables ideal assessment of your pictures with regard to exposure, sharpness and colour.
