Internally, the M10-P is identical to the M10 with the following exceptions. The M10-P features Leica’s quietest shutter… ever. Quieter than your father’s M4. Quieter than the film MP. Quieter than anything Leica has made before. This isn’t an electronic shutter “silent mode,” this is beautifully quiet mechanical-shutter perfection that still gives you the full tactile experience of firing off a frame along with the satisfying, yet unobtrusive, auditory click-thump from inside the magnesium-alloy and brass chassis.
Also new to the M10-P is a touchscreen LCD that allows you to scroll through your images while chimping, pinch to zoom to check focus, tap zoom, and more. Those accustomed to all of the touch controls of a smartphone will find that the touchscreen features of the M10-P are very basic.
Live view on the M10-P now features an artificial horizon or, as Leica calls it, a “Level Gauge.” This is a great feature for those carefully composing their shots on the LCD.
And, as a finishing touch to the minimalist design of the M10-P, a body-colored hot shoe cover protects while smoothing out the camera’s top plate.
