Manufacturer's Description

Moving pictures in M quality

Make the best of the unique imaging qualities of Leica M-Lenses for capturing moving images with the breathtaking, 1080p full-HD video function. Recording can be started directly with a separate release button. Complete control over exposure and recording parameters enable still images to be complemented with professional video recordings. Highest resolution, high speed and captivating bokeh guarantee the signature, premium quality Leica look.

Perfect handling in studio settings

The detachable multifunctional handgrip offers numerous advantages and helps to keep the camera steady. It enables tethered shooting with the Leica M (Type 240) and sends image data directly to a computer via cable connection to its USB port. A studio flash system can also be connected and flash and EVF can be used at the same time. In addition to this, the matched mains adapter provides constant power as an alternative to the camera battery. Capabilities and functions that are particularly appreciated by studio photographers.

The battery: perfectly prepared for longer trips or assignments

Enjoy longer independence from power supplies: the lithium-ion battery (1800 mAh) impresses with long periods of use between charges. Thanks to energy-saving exposure metering electronics, the energy-efficient imaging electronics of the Leica Maestro image processor and the sensor, a single battery guarantees an enormous number of exposures.
