Leica M8 Black Digital Camera Body {10.3 M/P} Description


This German-made, professional-grade digital camera uses an image sensor specially developed for the requirements of the Leica M system!

Features include:


  • Full compatibility with nearly all M lenses (offering a 1.33x conversion) & supports 6 bit-coding
  • Quiet, discreet operation with speed and precision via the rangefinder system
  • 2.5" Bright LCD display with a highly-scratch-resistant Sapphire Crystal coverglass
  • Features a full-auto mode that selects aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance!
  • Future-guaranteed raw data format (DNG) & raw data converter Capture One LE software
  • Snapshot Mode
  • Exposure-compensation

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.
