      Leica Camera is excited to announce the new Leica M10-P Edition "Safari." The eye-catching special finish of olive green 'Safari' cameras from Leica have a long and storied tradition, dating back to the early years of the M-System. The Leica M10-P Edition 'Safari' camera body will be limited to 1,500 units worldwide, and includes a carrying strap and SD/credit card holder in Brandy-colored leather.

      The first Leica cameras with this high-quality enamel finish in olive green were originally designed and constructed for military use in the field. What began in 1960 with the Leica M1 “Olive” manufactured for the German armed forces went on to become a story of legends in the camera world. While the subsequent olive green M3 and M4 cameras were manufactured exclusively for military use, 1977 saw the appearance of the olive green Leica R3 'Safari' camera in response to increasing demand from private customers.

      This special edition was followed by a series of popular successors: the M6 TTL 'Safari' in 2000, the M8.2 'Safari' in 2008 and, in 2015, the M-P (Typ 240) 'Safari'.

      The Leica M10-P Edition 'Safari' camera and the Leica Summicron-M 50mm f/2 Edition "Safari" premium lens (available separately), both finished in olive green enamel, represent a perfect symbiosis of functionality, legacy, and design. All visible metallic components of the camera and lens are elaborately machined from solid brass. The premium baked enamel finish in olive green makes the camera and lens resistant to handling blemishes and scratches and provides enduring protection against external influences such as chemicals and UV light.

      Exposure Metering: Exposure metering through the lens (TTL), with working aperture
      Metering Method: For metering the light reflected by light blades of the 1st shutter curtain onto a measuring cell: Strong center-weighted; for metering on the sensor: Spot, center-weighted, multi-field metering

      Metering Range:

      At room temperature and normal humidity for ISO 100, at aperture 1.0 EV-1 to EV20 at aperture 32. Flashing of the left triangular LED in the viewfinder indicates values below the metering range
      Sensitivity Range: ISO 100 to ISO 50000, adjustable in 1/3 ISO increments from ISO 200, choice of automatic control or manual setting
      Exposure Modes: Choice of automatic shutter speed control with manual aperture pre-selection - aperture priority A, or manual shutter speed and aperture setting
      Flash Exposure Control
      Flash Unit Attachment: Via accessory shoe with central and control contacts
      Synchronization: Optionally triggered at the 1st or 2nd Shutter curtain

      Flash Sync Time:

      1/180s; slower shutter speeds can be used, if working below sync speed: Automatic changeover to TTL linear flash mode with HSS compatible Leica system flash units

      Flash Exposure Metering: Using center-weighted TTL pre-flash metering with Leica flash units (SF40, SF64, SF26, SF60), or flash units compatible with the system with SCA3502 M5 adapter
      Flash Measurement Cell: 2 silicon photo diodes with collection lens on the camera base
      Flash Exposure Compensation: ±3EV in1⁄3 EV increments
      Displays in Flash Mode (in viewfinder only): Using flash symbol LED
      Construction Principle: Large, bright line frame viewfinder with automatic parallax compensation
      Eyepiece: Calibrated to -0.5 diopter; corrective lenses from -3 to +3 diopter available
      Image Field Limiter: By activating two bright lines each: For 35 and 135mm, for 28 and 90mm, or for 50 and 75mm; automatic switching when lens is attached
      Parallax Compensation: The horizontal and vertical difference between the viewfinder and the lens is automatically compensated according to the relevant distance setting, i.e. the viewfinder bright-line automatically aligns with the subject detail recorded by the lens.
      Matching Viewfinder & Actual Image: At a range setting of 2m, the bright-line frame size corresponds exactly to the sensor size of approx. 23.9 x 35.8mm; at infinity setting, depending on the focal length, approx. 7.3% (28mm) to 18% (135mm) more is recorded by the sensor than indicated by the corresponding bright line frame and slightly less for shorter distance settings than 2m

For manual adjustment: 8s to 1⁄4000s in half steps, from 8s to 125s in whole steps, B: For long exposures up to maximum 125s (in conjunction with self-timer T function, i.e. 1st release = shutter opens, 2nd release = shutter closes),(1⁄180s): Fastest shutter speed for flash synchronization, HSS linear flash mode possible with all shutter speeds faster than 1⁄180s (with HSS-compatible Leica system flash units)
      Picture Series: approx. 5 pictures per second, 30-40 pictures in series
