Description

The Leica M (Typ 262) Black Digital Rangefinder is the new addition to the Leica M-System family. The Leica M (Typ 262) has been developed especially for rangefinder photography; therefore does not offer extended functions such as Live View and Video function. All controls and functions of the M (Typ 262) are ergonomically located where the photographer expects them to be - just like every other M. Features a shutter cocking system which is extremely quiet and in single exposure mode, this enables a shutter release frequency of up to two frames per second. In continuous mode, the Leica M (Typ 262) has the same burst rate as it's sister model and shoots up to three frames per second. This low noise and compact size of the camera allows you to get up and close to the action without any disturbance.

The Leica M (Typ 262) captures images with a high resolution CMOS full-frame sensor. It's 24 megapixel resolution ensures exceptional imaging quality and extreme sensitivity - with ISO values of up to 6,400. This makes the camera extremely suited for shooting with available light. The resulting images are seperated by their exceptional contrast, detail resolution and low image noise. The Leica Maestro Processor guarantees fast processing of captured images and immediate readiness to shoot. The large 3" monitor with a cover plate is manufactured from tough, scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass which offers you complete control at all times. With a resolution of 921,600 pixels, it allows the perfect assessment of your pictures with regard to exposure sharpness and colour.

The top plate of the Leica M (Typ 262) is engineered from durable aluminium - which makes it around 100 grams lighter. Made in Germany.

    Storage SD cards up to 2GB / SDHC cards up to 32GB / SDXC cards
    Menu languages English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Russian, Korean
    Compatibility Windows® 7® / 8®; Mac® OS X (10.5 or higher)
    Exposure metering Through the Lens (TTL) metering, with variable aperture, centre-weighted TTL metering for flash exposure with system-compliant flash units
    Metering principle/method By measuring the light reflected by the light blades of the 1st shutter curtain onto a measuring cell: strongly centre-weighted
    Metering range (With ISO 200/24) At room temperature and normal humidity, corresponds to ISO 200 at aperture 1.0 EV0 to EV20 at aperture 32. Flashing of the left triangular LED in the viewfinder indicates values below the metering range
    Sensitivity range ISO 200 to ISO 6400, adjustable in 1/3 ISO increments, choice of automatic control or manual setting, PULL 100
    Exposure modes Choice of automatic shutter speed control with manual aperture preselection - aperture priority A, or manual shutter speed and aperture setting
    Flash unit attachment: Using accessory shoe with centre and control contacts
    Synchronisation: Optionally triggered at the 1st or 2nd shutter curtain
    Flash sync time: 1/180 s; slower shutter speeds can be used, if working below sync speed: Automatic changeover to TTL linear flash mode with HSS-compatible and system-compatible flash units
    Flash exposure metering: (with system-compatible flash units, e.g. Leica SF 26) Control with centre-weighted TTL pre-flash metering
    Flash measurement cell: 2 silicon photo diodes with collection lens on the camera base
    Flash exposure compensation: ±31/3 EV in 1/3 EV steps can be set (only with system-compatible flash units that do not have their own setting possibility)
    Displays in flash mode: (in viewfinder only) Ready: Constant illumination of flash symbol LED in viewfinder, Function check: Continued illumination or brief rapid flashing of LED after exposure, underexposure indicator: LED temporarily goes out
    Viewfinder principle: Large, bright line frame viewfinder with automatic parallax compensation
    Eyepiece: Calibrated to -0.5 dpt.; corrective lenses from -3 to +3 diopter available
    Image field limiter: By activating two bright lines each: For 35 and 135mm, or for 28 and 90mm, or for 50 and 75mm; automatic switching when lens is attached
    Parallax compensation: The horizontal and vertical difference between the viewfinder and the lens is automatically compensated according to the relevant distance setting, i.e. the viewfinder bright-line automatically aligns with the subject detail recorded by the lens
    Matching viewfinder and actual image: At a range setting of 2m, the bright-line frame size corresponds exactly to the sensor size of approx. 23.9 x 35.8mm; at infinity setting, depending on the focal length, approx. 7.3% (28mm) to 18% (135mm) more is recorded by the sensor than indicated by the corresponding bright line frame and slightly less for shorter distance settings than 2m
    Magnification: (For all lenses) 0.68 x
    Large-base rangefinder: Split or superimposed image rangefinder shown as a bright rectangular field in the centre of the viewfinder image
    Effective metering basis: 47.1mm (mechanical measurement basis 69.25mm x viewfinder magnification 0.68x)
    In the viewfinder: Four-digit digital display with dots above and below, displays
    On back: 3“ colour TFT LCD monitor with 16m colours and 921,600 pixels, approx. 100% image field, max. 170° viewing angle
    Shutter: Metal blade focal plane shutter with vertical movement
    Shutter speeds:

    "For aperture priority: (A) continuously from 60s (ISO-dependent) to 1/4000 s

    For manual adjustment: 8s to 1/4000 s in half steps

    (B): For long exposures up to max. 60s (together with self-timer: T function, i.e. 1st press = Shutter opens, 2nd press = Shutter closes), (1/180 s): Fastest shutter speed for flash synchronisation, HSS linear flash mode possible with all shutter speeds faster than 1/180 s with HSS-compatible Leica system flash units)
     

    Activation of shutter release button: By integrated motor, low noise operation
    Picture series: Approx. ≤12 pictures in series with 3 pictures/s, then slower
    Shutter release button: Two-stage, 1. Activation of exposure metering and exposure lock (in aperture priority mode), 2. Shutter release; standard thread for cable release integrated
    Self-timer 2s (aperture priority and manual exposure setting) or 12s, set in menu, indicated by flashing LED on front of camera and corresponding display in monitor
    Camera on/off Using main switch on top of camera; optional automatic shutdown of camera electronics after approx. 2/5/10 minutes; reactivated by tapping the shutter release
    Power supply 1 x Leica BP-SCL2 lithium ion battery, rated voltage 7.4V, capacity 1800mAh, capacity indicated in top panel display, when shutter held open (for sensor cleaning) additional acoustic warning of low capacity, maximum charging current/voltage: DC, 1000mA, 7.4V; manufacturer: VARTA Microbattery, Made in Indonesia
