Leica Camera is proud to present the Leica M-P, an elegant, discrete and faster model to the M-System. Embodying the best of Leica M cameras, the Leica M-P has an unobtrusive appearance, appealing to professional photographers and avid Leica M users.
KEY BENEFITS & FEATURES
- Scratch resistant display-cover made of sapphire glass
- Long-lasting readiness to capture due to a large double sized image buffer of 2GB
- Pure look without the Leica Logo and “M” lettering on the front side
- Manual viewfinder frame selection with the traditional ‘frame selector‘
The large buffer size of 2GB makes it possible to shoot up to 24 images in full continuous speed of 3 frames per second. With such a buffer size, the new Leica M-P is ready to shoot at almost anytime, thus, the ‘decisive moment’ is never missed.
With the reduced, classic look, without the Leica logo, the Leica M-P has an unobtrusive appearance making it a professional tool with a unique identity. The sapphire glass is extremely scratch resistant and unbreakable, an appealing feature to professional photographers. Leica Camera is the only manufacturer that offers sapphire glass as a camera display protection. The Leica M-P has the classic image field selector which is another appealing feature to professional photographers and avid Leica M users.
The Leica M-P in silver chrome finish will be available from late August while the black paint finish version will be available from mid-September. There are new protectors and ever ready cases designed for the Leica M-P which will be available from mid-September. The new case designs will accommodate the frame selector on the M-P.
Current protectors and ever ready cases cannot be used with the Leica M-P. Other technical accessories such as the multi-functional handgrip M, electronic viewfinder EVF 2, R-Adapter M for the M (Typ 240) can be used with the Leica M-P.
