Leica M8 (8.2 Upgrade) Black Digital Camera Body {10.3 M/P} Description


The Leica M8.2 was designed off the M8 with a few upgrades. Nevertheless, the M8.2 still reflects the advantages of the Leica M system to deliver advanced and creative digital photography. The Leica M8.2 continues Leica reputation for uncompromising image quality, compact design with subtle functions, and the ability to blend into the scenery. The 8.2 upgrade featured extra-quiet, low vibration metal blade focal plane shutter with the option to re-cock the shutter at a later moment, LCD designed with ultra scratch-resistant sapphire crystal cover glass, new snapshot mode, vulcanite body finish, viewfinder bright line increased for two meters, and operational changes following user feedback. 

The Leica M system is now open for professional digital photography. Breaking completely new ground, the Leica M8 doesn't only look like an M - it utilities all the benefits of the analog Leica M system for sophisticated and creative digital photography. It is the only digital camera for professionals to incorporate the rangefinder system with its advantages of discreet and quiet operation, speed and precision. And the no-compromise quality criteria of the M system continue to apply to the M8. Full compatibility with nearly all M lenses means that their unique imaging performance is available for digital photography, too. The CCD image sensor has been specifically matched to the compact lens design to guarantee superlative photographic quality. The controls and functions of the digital M still concentrate on the essentials. The proven M concept is complemented by the intelligent extra functions that digital technology has to offer. The Leica M8 is the first timeless digital camera "Made in Germany". Fascinatingly new and yet still a real Leica M.
