Leica M10-P camera additional coverage:

The other big update is a rear touchscreen. In live view mode, it allows you to tap to select a region to zoom in on it, or double-tap for an instant "pop-in" zoom -- all of which is pretty key for a camera without autofocus. For playback, meanwhile, you can pinch to zoom, double tap and swipe to play through your photos. Finally, Leica has added a spirit level so you can check that your horizon line is straight. (Engadget)

Leica has introduced the M10-P, a higher-priced version of the M10 that removes the famous red dot and adds a quieter shutter in order to make the camera 'the stealthiest M ever'. Though ironically, if stealth is its aim, Leica has also added its trademark script to the top plate, which is hard to miss. (Dpreview)

You can use the touch-screen in playback to swipe between photos, pinch to zoom, double tap to zoom and move around the photo using your finger. In live-view, you can tap to choose the magnification point and focus peaking will help you focus. You can also double tap for instant pop-in (magnified view), then touch and move the screen to change the area you are viewing. There’s also a new built-in electronic spirit level, viewable during live-view. (Ephotozine)

Leica developed a new mechanical shutter that is practically inaudible, somehow improving the already stealthy aspect. The Leica M-10P will be available in both black chrome and silver chrome to complement the signature M series sleek. (Adorama)

I never did see the point of a level gauge, it seems to me that if there is a horizon you don't need it, and if there isn't then what 'feels right' is what you want. However it seems that I'm in the minority here and lots of people really missed it in the M10. There was much talk about it being implemented in firmware, but in fact that isn't possible as the hardware is not present. (Slack)

The hot shoe cover is made of metal in the color that matches the camera body, i.e., black or silver. It’s a small thing, to be sure, but it will likely make you more vigilant against losing it. (Shutterbug)

But it’s how it goes about capturing those photos that has changed. Leica claims that the new mechanical shutter is 50 percent quieter than the M10, and even the film versions of the M that used cloth shutters. Leica achieved this by mounting the shutter onto the camera with a new rubber-bearing suspension that reduces vibration and noise. At the same time, the M10-P’s shutter has the same maximum 1/4000 second speed, 1/180 second flash sync speed, and overall reliability as the M10’s. (The Verge)
