LEICA M11 DIGITAL RANGEFINDER CAMERA IN BLACK PAINT FINISH SUMMARY

With all-new technology packed into a familiar iconic design, the Leica M11 in Black Paint Finish heralds a new era of Digital Rangefinder Cameras. Leica has incorporated an exclusively designed full-frame BSI CMOS Sensor powered by the Maestro III image processor, together with new Triple Resolution Technology. This allows the user to capture images using the entire sensor surface, irrespective of format, in resolutions of 60 megapixels, 36MP and 18MP. There’s no low pass filter for maximum sharpness, and Digital Zoom 1.3x and 1.8x is available to maximise the potential of attached M-mount lenses.

This black paint M11 features a more scratch resistant full-metal housing made of magnesium and aluminium, together with a classic Leica-styled leatherette cover. The updated body design is 20% lighter than predecessors and the M11 Silver Chrome, weighing just 455g without the updated rechargeable M11 BP-SCL7 battery.

Strong Gorilla Glass is used on the 2.95-inch touch control LCD panel, which has 2.3 million dots, while an optimised menu and button layout is easier to navigate and adds a FN button for quicker camera operation.

NEXT GENERATION IMAGE QUALITY

With an all-new sensor and completely new technology, the Leica M11 is a camera with refined imaging capabilities and future-proof technology. A native IS0 64 to 50,000 defies the compact size of the camera, with resulting images being well controlled for noise and showing a wide dynamic range. This enables you to shoot in extremely varied lighting conditions, from bright daylight with smooth noise-free details at low ISO values, to low light situations at high values.

Triple Resolution Technology promises incomparable levels of image quality from the full colour sensor, opening up entirely new possibilities in composition with a choice of resolutions, which all harness the entire sensor surface area. Shooting in up to 60 megapixels delivers the highest resolutions ever seen from an M system camera, with options to capture 36 and 18 megapixels.

ADVANCED METERING FEATURES

Exposure metering is done by the image sensor for all exposure metering methods, both in Live View mode and in rangefinder mode. TTL (exposure metering through the lens), with working aperture is offered. Users can choose from Spot, Centre-weighted and Multi-field metering, with Aperture priority and Manual modes available.

LEICA M LENS ECOSYSTEM

With countless lenses available for the Rangefinder system users are spoilt for choice when choosing their next focal length. What’s more, any lens constructed from 1954 through to today can still be used without compromise. This means you can scour for available used Leica lenses as well as the most recently released M lenses and enjoy the art of photography with a whole world of creative freedom, which a Rangefinder provides.

COMPREHENSIVE ACCESSORIES

Accompanying the launch of the new camera is a series of accessories aimed at enhancing the ownership and shooting experience. Leica has designed half-cases, straps and batteries, which cater for the two camera finishes available.

Perhaps the most essential accessory will be the Visoflex 2 Electronic Viewfinder, which provides three angles with a high resolution OLED screen. The M11 Leather Protector in Cognac is a personal favourite, while an M11 Thumb Rest adds to user ergonomics. If you’re a flash user the accessory shoe SF 40 Flashgun or larger Leica SF 60 both harness centre-weighted TTL at up to 1⁄180s.

LEICA FOTOS APP AND LATEST CONNECTIVITY

The M11 belies its traditional appearance with future-proof connectivity, which includes 5 GHz WiFi,  Bluetooth v4.2 and Geotagging via Leica FOTOS app. The app connects the camera seamlessly to your smartphone or iPad via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, enabling the transfer of images, camera remote control and the ability to view, edit and share pictures in various formats.
