Leica M-E (Typ 220)
The essence of rangefinder photography

Overview

 

The M-E Digital Rangefinder Camera from Leica is a full frame, interchangeable lens camera that embodies the notion that less is more.By concentrating on essential photographic functions, the M-E produces high quality images in a fast and stealthy manner.

The camera houses a full frame (36 x 24 mm) sensor but retains a compact, durable and well-designed form. The 18MP CCD sensor in full 35mm format offers high-resolution imaging and the omission of the sensor's low-pass filter creates photos with fine details and an increased visual impact.

The sensor matches well with the compact M-system and M-series lenses, giving uniform exposure across the entire sensor. The camera's compatibility with the full line of superb Leica M-series lenses provides flexibility in shooting and sharp imagery.

By declining to incorporate features such as Live View and Video functions, the M-E frees itself to perfect only those functions that create a better photographic image. Its fast and accurate manual focusing is achieved via the optical viewfinder/rangefinder and the smooth, exact focusing ring of a Leica lens. Shutter speeds from bulb mode through 1/4000th of seconds can be set manually or automatically determined by the camera.

The shutter mechanism is a closed type focal plane shutter with external cocking mechanics and provides a quiet and smooth action. A 2.5" TFT LCD screen with 230,000 pixels offers clear image playback and menu control and the camera body itself is an all-metal casing made of die-cast magnesium with an attractive anthracite-gray finish and a real leather wrap which provides a good grip as well as good looks.

A hot shoe mount is available for optional flash attachment. This is an ideal camera for those interested in a pure photographic system which produces uncompromised image quality.

 

Details

 

Concentrated on the essentials

The Leica M-E is a modern camera that works like a classic, so mastering the essentials of this piece comes quickly and naturally. You may focus manually - using the rangefinder and focusing ring of the lens - or select automatically determined or manually set shutter speeds.

Uncompromising image quality

The 18-megapixel high-resolution CCD sensor in full 35 mm format is a perfect fit in the M-System. The micro lens layout makes it tolerant of oblique light rays impinging on the surface and guarantees uniform exposure and extreme sharpness. The omission of the low-pass filter reduces the need for digital post-processing and offers a particularly natural visual impact.

Classic M design

The essence of the M-System is reflected in the functional design which lends clarity and an absolute timeless to the camera’s character. The top and base plates are discreetly finished in anthracite-grey paint and the leather trim offers superior grip. The quiet sound signature of its shutter release shows our attention to the finest of details.

Quiet, discreet, compact

The M-System proudly claims discretion and unobtrusiveness as particular strengths, perfectly showcased by Leica M-E’s inconspicuous shutter action. Additionally, the combination of camera and lens offers a more compact system than any other full-format camera, allowing M-Photographers to almost blend into the scenery to capture life’s most precious, fleeting moments.
