Focusing on the main photographic functions: on the back of the camera are just the three buttons "Menu", "Playback" and "Live-View".
All Pictures are shoot in DNG in the exposure mode A (aperture priority), with WB automatic by Eric Berger in Auto ISO - developed in Adobe RAW converter.
Classic night shots have high contrast mostly with existing individual light sources. In landscape photography, it is more effective to use a tripod. Even in the street photography in the evening I managed no need 25000 ISO, because I prefer an open aperture anyway.
The Leica M10 Maestro II image processor features technology of the latest generation with her Leica. Together with the new 24 MP sensor recordings that meet the requirement of Leica arise: shots of exceptionally brilliant image quality.
ALL PHOTOS SHOWN HERE WERE RECORDED BY ERIC BERGER FOR THE FOTOCULT MAGAZINE.
FOR ME, THE MOST OBVIOUS DIFFERENCE TO THE M240 THE SIGNIFICANTLY FASTER PROCESSING TIME AFTER TRIGGERING, AND THUS THE "REAL" FAST IMAGE SEQUENCE TIME. AT FIRST GLANCE AN ARGUMENT, WHICH IS AN EXTREME HIGH "MUST HAVE" DESIRE!
DO NOT FORGET TO AN EXTRA BATTERY!
A desire, which, on the second day of the test, quickly a little bit was marred. I had a flat battery after approximately 290 pictures. I simply had not thought of, that I should charge the battery over night. A fact I was not so used by the M240. Of course this resolve by purchasing a second battery.
Smart Phone steuerbar via Leica M10 App
The Leica M10 is the first M camera with built-in Wi-Fi module. About images can be easily and wirelessly on iOS devices transmit and share in social networks. In addition, the Leica M10 via Wi-Fi with your Smartphone and the Leica can be remotely app. To succeed, for example, blur-free long exposure shots and shots from unusual perspectives.
Lenses were used for the test:
Super-Elmar-M 18mm, Summilux 35mm, Noctilux 50mm
I think that the sensor in the Leica SL in the new M10 is installed. This, or for me, makes a further evolved here absolutely good accurate work.
The viewfinder was also improved and the Focusierhilfe via life view (zoom to preset 5 times or 10 enlargement) can be placed off-center now also via the arrow buttons on the back
Thanks to Gorilla® glass blocks of brass, an all-metal body made of high-strength magnesium alloy and scratch-resistant Corning®. In addition, special rubber seals protect against light rain, dust and weather.
The camera is simply great fun, with a usual Leica precision and professionalism in daily practice.
THE FAVORITES MENU
The importance of individual settings varies depending on the preference and application area when shooting. Therefore, the Leica M10 offers a customizable Favorites menu. Moreover, the photographer sets the personally relevant functions button on it for quick access to. Of course, the settings can be changed at any time and adapted to photographic situations.
I'm primarily a photographer, that's why I can deal with the fact that the M10 offers no way to record videos, although I did use lately with the M240, more and more of them.
