M-D Controls

Complete concentration

The Leica M-D has no LCD monitor screen and no menu system. Apart from the essential parameters for photography – shutter speed, aperture, distance and ISO values – it offers no further setting options. The consequence is photography in its purest form. Every photographer knows instinctively how to use the Leica M-D. No distractions – not even after each exposure. In a way, the Leica M-D is an homage to the experience of capturing pictures on film. It brings back the joy of anticipation of waiting to see how our pictures turned out.

 

 

M-D Back


Less Technology, More Creative Freedom


By deliberately omitting technical features such as Live View or video capture, the Leica M-D takes photography back to its purest level – allowing photographers to concentrate solely on the subject before them. Without the temptation to view the captured image immediately after exposure or share it with the person or subjects featured in the picture. The Leica M-D directs attention entirely on the composition. It consistently shifts the focus to the creative aspects of each subject – less technology for more creativity.

M-D Sensor


Typical M


As is the case with all M-Cameras, the Leica M-D delivers exceptional picture quality. Its Leica Maestro image processor and 24 MP still CMOS sensor represent the state of the art of digital rangefinder photography, yet it remains consistently true to its purist origins – by capturing exposures exclusively in DNG format. This guarantees that all options are available for digital image processing.

 

 

M-D Camera Front

Unique

Purism also characterizes its design: by the omission of the Leica red dot logo, LCD monitor screen and menu controls, and a body finished completely in black, the Leica M-D is the epitome of understatement. From the baseplate and matching leather carrying strap provided with the camera, to the top plate in brass with the stepped edge design reminiscent of the Leica M9. The Leica M-D is the pure ideal among rangefinder cameras. With an ISO setting dial placed in precisely the same location as a film speed indicator, the Leica M-D pays homage to its film-based predecessors, carrying the philosophy of its analogue ancestry forward into the digital age.

Shutter Button
Absolute Discretion


The Leica M-D features an almost silent shutter that enables exceptionally discreet photography. This is due to a shutter cocking system that is considerably quieter in single exposure mode than that of the M (Typ 240) and enables a shutter release frequency of up to two frames per second. In continuous mode, the M-D has the same sequential shooting speed as its sister model and shoots up to three frames per second.
