The race between the good, affordable and mirrorless cameras are on. And now another cameras maker company Leica comes up with their entry level M type camera. Leica has announced it’s the new M-E (Typ 240) digital rangefinder camera. The camera is designed for newcomers to the M system, “making it the new entry-point of Leica M rangefinders.” Well, each of the cameras is handcrafted in Germany. The body is resistant to spray water and dust, and the leather trim across the surface provides a safe grip
Coming inside, the M-E (Typ 240) is a 24-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor backed by a Leica Maestro image processor. Besides that it has a 2GB buffer up from the 1GB buffer of the original M240. While, the ISO range is 200 to 6400.
Leica M Rangefinder Camera
The company has introduced an M-E (Typ 240) model that preserves the compact rangefinder design and a 24-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, but at a slightly easier to swallow $3,995 price. Coming to technicality and other stuff, the reasonable priced camera Typ 240 now has a good 2GB storage. This allows shooting three frames per second; the sensor only shoots at a max ISO of 6,400. It won’t be a low-light champ, even if the full-frame sensor helps overall performance.
Besides that, user will also have to settle for 1080p video recording, which may feel out of place when many phones can capture 4K. Leica’s new ‘entry’ M Rangefinder camera is Full Frame Mirrorless and has a 24 Megapixel CMOS sensor. Not only that, it features a Leica Maestro image processor, and inspiring Rangefinder design.
While talking about other aspects, the company has made many improvements with this M typ camera. For example it has brand new anthracite-gray lacquered finish, which has been developed just for the new camera, and there is genuine leather covering the body which will provide users with excellent grip and premium styling.
