The new Leica Fotos app will play a major role in the M10-D camera’s use and control


I am still getting conflicting reports on the actual use of the advance lever on the upcoming Leica M10-D camera (it could just be a thumb rest with no specific functionality). I did, however, receive some information that the new Leica Fotos app will play a major role in the M10-D camera's use and control.

The new Leica Fotos app is expected to be released on October 25th, shortly after the rumored October 23rd M10-D announcement.

Additional info on the Leica Fotos app from the official press release:

Leica Camera introduces Leica FOTOS, a brand new mobile app which offers Leica photographers the tools to stay connected easily through a single app. Compatible with almost any Wi-Fi enabled Leica camera, the new app allows photographers to capture unforgettable moments remotely, transfer, edit and share images quickly, easily and on-the-go.

The Leica FOTOS app makes it easy to connect a smartphone to a Leica camera with the easy instructions provided at the start. All current Wi-Fi enabled Leica Cameras can be connected to the Leica FOTOS App. The app will automatically save all Leica camera credentials to instantly connect the next time it is used with the phone.

Leica FOTOS enables photographers to access the Live View function of the camera and remotely change exposure-relevant settings such as the aperture, the ISO value, the shutter speed and exposure compensation from a smartphone. It naturally also allows wireless control of the shutter release, which opens up entirely new creative opportunities. Leica FOTOS can be used for this in combination with many popular software tools, ranging from Adobe® Lightroom®Mobile® to VSCO®.
