Analog feel and digital performance. That's one way to describe Leica's latest release in the growing M10 line. For the M10-D, Leica replaced the familiar LCD display from the back of the camera with a circular dial to adjust exposure compensation and a mechanical on/off switch that serves as a shortcut for Wi-Fi connectivity. With no digital distractions, the M10-D delivers a vintage, analog shooting experience. Instead of the screen, your smartphone becomes the preview monitor, allowing you to review and edit pictures via the all-new Leica Fotos app for iOS and Android smartphones. And while the camera is filmless, a thumb grip on the side adds additional stability and might even make you think there is a roll inside that needs to be wound between shots.
