A few weeks ago Leica released a new Perspective Control feature driven by Computational Imaging for the Leica M10-P, M10-R and M10 Monochrom cameras. Reddotforum published a nice article explaining in details how the new feature works:

“In practice, the Leica Perspective Control feature is simple and extremely intuitive. In Live View mode, either on the rear LCD or in the Visoflex 020 EVF, you’ll see a white framing rectangle. As you change the pitch, yaw and roll of the camera, the rectangle will adjust accordingly in real-time to show the degree of cropping necessary to achieve a fully perspective-corrected image. This way, you can make sure you don’t accidentally crop out important details from your composition after straightening the frame in post processing.

Once you’ve taken your shot, the LPC metadata is embedded in the DNG file and a perspective-corrected thumbnail is stored. And if you’re shooting in JPG or DNG+JPG, the JPG image will have the correction applied in-camera. Activating image review or playback, you’ll see the corrected version of the image. While permanent for the JPG, this is only a preview for the DNG file. Once imported into Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Camera RAW (Photoshop), the effect can be undone to revert to the full-frame, uncorrected image. Or, the perspective correction can be adjusted to taste in the Transform palette using the Guided Upright control. Again, this is only available if shooting in DNG.”
