LEICA M-E (TYP 240)
The Entry-Level Leica M Camera
The new Leica M-E continues the unique tradition of rangefinder photography. A stringent paring down to the most essential camera functions ensures a streamlined and intuitive operation. Compact, quiet and characteristically discreet, the new Leica M-E allows photographers to blend into their surroundings, establish a direct connection with their subject, and capture each scene with absolute authenticity and brilliant image quality.
Seeing the Bigger Picture
Leica’s unique M-System – whose name is based on the German term ‘Messsucher’, meaning rangefinder — has been making history for 65 years. The ‘Messsucher’ presents a bigger picture - a broader view of your subject - and opens up a whole new world of creative freedom: this enables the photographer to anticipate the way in which a composition might develop — and press the shutter at the decisive moment. Consequently, Leica M cameras are particularly suited to street and reportage photography. In addition, the rangefinder allows for a fast and precise focus, even in challenging lighting conditions.
The Iconic M Design
The Leica M-E (Typ 240) is distinguished by a timelessly elegant aesthetic and high-end construction. Each model is handcrafted in Germany. The compact camera body is dust and spray water resistant, while the genuine leather trim offers both a sophisticated appearance and a safer grip on the camera. Top and base plate are finished in an anthracite grey paint which has been developed especially for the M-E.
Image Quality without Compromise
The new Leica M-E ranks among the most compact full-frame camera systems in the world. Its 24MP CMOS sensor offers a high light sensitivity of up to ISO 6400 – facilitating outstanding image results even in low-light situations. Its 2GB buffer memory ensures that the Leica M-E is always ready to shoot, even when capturing a rapid succession of frames – so you can rest assured that you will never miss out on the decisive moment.
Leica Look in Full-HD
Thanks to its exceedingly high resolution and light sensitivity, the Leica M-E delivers photographs imbued with the classic ‘Leica look’, characterized by a unique bokeh rendition. Owners of the new Leica M-E are also able to apply this distinctive quality to their moving images: the Leica M-E features a 1080p, full-HD movie mode — allowing you to capture stunning videos using a dedicated recording button, adding yet another dimension to your creative pursuits.
