Leica M10 Owner’s Boot Camp | Sept 21-23, 2018


Sold Out

    • The Leica M10 represents the culmination of more than a decade of digital rangefinder development: it maintains Leica's classic design while incorporating cutting-edge technology and features. Thanks to its incredible image quality and versatility, there is little the M10 cannot do given the right mix of technique, practice and accompanying equipment. With that in mind, Leica Store Miami is pleased to introduce another workshop in our Boot Camp series: the Leica M10 Owner’s Boot Camp, taking place over 3 days from Friday, September 21 to Sunday, September 23, 2018 in sunny Miami, Florida.

      We will go over the entire menu in detail along with every button and switch on the camera. You will learn how to set up the M10 for your preferred style of shooting, and all of our favorite tips and tricks will be shared including the best way to work with Wi-Fi, configuring buttons and menus buttons for quick access to your most-used settings, a full overview of the M-system accessories lineup and how to use alternative lenses with adapters. There will also be lessons in rangefinder technique and best practices along with a variety of shooting exercises throughout the first two days of classroom sessions.

      This workshop is primarily geared towards M10 owners, however anyone interested in a comprehensive overview of the camera is welcome to join us. A very limited supply of loaner M10 cameras will be on hand, along with a full assortment of M-system lenses for use during our shooting sessions.
