LeicaLeica M-D (Typ 262) digital rangefinder camera : Leica is dedicated to focusing on the sheer essentials of photography. As a result, Leica has developed the Leica M-D (Type 262): a camera that delivers photography in the most consistent way. A camera that offers no more and no less than the most important features, and represents state-of-the-art digital rangefinder photography in its purest form. Simplicity itself, photographers using the Leica M-D for the first time will instinctively and intuitively know how to use it. With the deliberate omission of anything but the essentials, the Leica M-D provides the greatest freedom to focus on creativity and capturing the decisive moment every time.

Leica M-D camera specs
The Leica M-D has no LCD monitor screen and no menu system. Apart from the essential parameters for photography - shutter speed, aperture, distance and ISO values - it offers no further setting options. The consequence is photography in its purest form. Every photographer knows instinctively how to use the Leica M-D. No distractions - not even after each exposure. In a way, this Leica rangefinder camera is an homage to the experience of capturing pictures on film. It brings back the joy of anticipation of waiting to see how our pictures turned out. By deliberately omitting technical features such as Live View or video capture, the Leica M-D takes photography back to its purest level - allowing photographers to concentrate solely on the subject before them. Without the temptation to view the captured image immediately after exposure or share it with the person or subjects featured in the picture. The Leica M-D directs attention entirely on the composition. It consistently shifts the focus to the creative aspects of each subject - less technology for more creativity.

Leica M-Cameras
As is the case with all M-Cameras, the Leica M-D delivers exceptional picture quality. Its Leica Maestro image processor and 24 MP still CMOS sensor represent the state of the art of digital rangefinder photography, yet it remains consistently true to its purist origins - by capturing exposures exclusively in DNG format. This guarantees that all options are available for digital image processing.

Leica M-D body
Purism also characterises its design: by the omission of the Leica red dot logo, LCD monitor screen and menu controls, and a body finished completely in black, the Leica M-D is the epitome of understatement. From the baseplate and matching leather carrying strap provided with the camera, to the top plate in brass with the stepped edge design reminiscent of the Leica M9. The Leica M-D is the pure ideal among rangefinder cameras. With an ISO setting dial placed in precisely the same location as a film speed indicator, the Leica M-D pays homage to its film-based predecessors, carrying the philosophy of its analogue ancestry forward into the digital age.

Discreet photography
The new Leica rangefinder camera features an almost silent shutter that enables exceptionally discreet photography. This is due to a shutter cocking system that is considerably quieter in single exposure mode than that of the M (Typ 240) and enables a shutter release frequency of up to two frames per second. In continuous mode, the M-D has the same sequential shooting speed as its sister model and shoots up to three frames per second.

Leica M-D price & availability
The Leica M-D will be available from May 2016 and carries a suggested retail price of $ 5,995,00.
