The Leica M-E Digital Rangefinder Camera is a discreet and compact camera which embodies the philosophy of the M system. It concentrates on the essential ingredients for intuitive photography With an 18-megapixel high-resolution CCD sensor in full 35mm format, the quality of the image is outstanding. The layout of the micro lens had been designed to tolerate light abrations, which can cause optical problems when shooting in difficult lighting conditions. Guaranteeing uniform exposure and sharpness in every image, the Low-Pass Filter reduces the need for digital post-processing and means images have a natural visual impact. With the top and base plates discreetly finished in a grey paint, the Leica M-E Digital Rangefinder Camera is classy and the attractive leather trim, improves the cameras grip, allowing confident use of the camera even if the environment is challenging.
The Leica M-E Digital Rangefinder Camera offers rapid manual focusing through the focusing ring on the lens, which is ideal for photographers wanting to catch that unique shot. The option of automatically or manually selectingt set shutter speeds gives added creativity and speed and due to the camera's descreet outline, photographers can slip in and out of scenes without being detected.
