Leica has added the M10-P ‘stealth’ model to its portfolio of ‘full frame’ cameras.

Offering similar specifications to the Leica M10, the M10-P boasts the quietest shutter in the line-up and the prominent red dot on the front of the camera, masked with tape by many pro photographers for added stealth, has been omitted. Instead the camera features  unobtrusive Leica lettering on the top plate and the matching metal hot-shoe cover that merges seamlessly into the top plate. It is also the first M model with touch functionality that allows faster and more fluid control of the focus position in Live View and Playback modes, along with more convenient browsing of photos during Playback.

Key features are as follows:

  • 4MP full-frame CMOS Sensor
  • Leica Maestro II image processor
  • Optical viewfinder with 0.73x magnification
  • 3.0-inch touchscreen LCD with 1,040,000 dots
  • ISO 100-50000
  • Built-In ISO dial and frame line selector
  • Stills-only operation
  • Continuous shooting at up to 5 fps
  • Built-in Wi-Fi
  • Redesigned shutter for near silent operation
  • Built-in level gauge
  • Weather-resistant brass body
