More Leica M10 specifications and rumors: no video, only three buttons on the back, M7 size

I received some additional information on the upcoming Leica M10 camera (see more details here) that will be announced on January 18th:

  • It will have only 3 buttons on the back
  • No video (this is a strange move, probably needed to make the camera smaller – it also explains the lack of the movie button on the top plate)
  • Leica M7 size
  • New 24MP sensor (meaning new compared to the M 240, I still believe this will be the same sensor from the Q/SL)

The Japanese website Nokishita also published some additional M10 information translated from German:

  • 24MP sensor (Höchste Abbildungsleistung durch neuen 24 MP Sensor)
  • Image processing engine MAESTRO II (Das nächste Qualitätslevel mit neuem Maestro II Prozessor)
  • As slim as analog Leica M camera (So schlank wie eine analoge M)
  • ISO sensitivity dial (ISO Einstellrad für mehr Kontrolle)
  • Improved viewfinder (Mehr Durchblick mit verbessertem Sucher) – this probably explains the bigger size of the viewfinder in the leaked pictures
  • Up to 5 frames per sec. (Schnelle Aufnahmefrequenz Bis zu 5 Bilder pro Sekunde)
  • Wi-Fi equipped (Vernetzt mit M App und WiFi Konnektivität)
  • Improved menu (Ganz nach Wunsch Das Favoriten Menü)
  • Enhanced ISO sensitivity settings (Erweiterte ISO Einstellungen)
  • Reduced concept of operation (Reduziertes Bedienkonzept) – I am not sure of the exact translation here, maybe easier to operate?

Update: more M10 details are available here.
