Leica M-E (Typ 220) is a affordable model of M-System rangefinder digital camera features a 18 MP full-frame CCD sensor, ISO 160-2500, 0.68x magnification viewfinder and 2.5-inch LCD screen.
Leica M-E is the ideal entry-level model for photographers wishing to experience the fascination of M-Photography or require a secondary camera that performs at an optimum level without fail.
Discretion and unobtrusiveness are particular strengths of the M-System. For instance, the Leica M-E camera's shutter action is extremely quiet. At the same time, the combination of camera and lens is more compact than any other full-format camera system – a reason why M-Photographers often go unnoticed and simply blend into the scenery.
Advantages of rangefinder photography include the ability for photographers to become a part of the action and frame whatever they wish to capture in the viewfinder, while still perceiving what is going on outside the viewfinder frame. The crucial moment becomes predictable, and can thus be captured at precisely the right instant.
The Leica M-E features an 18-megapixels high-resolution full-frame CCD sensor, the Leica M-E offers maximum imaging quality. Perfectly attuned to its role in the extremely compact M-System and the superior performance of M-Lenses, this particular sensor type possesses a high sensitivity to light. The omission of the otherwise usual low-pass filter reduces the need for digital post-processing and ensures that images possess a particularly natural visual impact. These characteristics lead to an unmistakably individual kind of photography.
Concentration on the essentials is part of the M-System philosophy. This also applies to the Leica M-E: it consciously declines to offer everything that is technically possible, but rather limits itself to what is essential to photography. These essentials include the M-typical rapid manual focusing with the viewfinder/rangefinder and the focusing ring of the lens, but also the option of selecting automatically determined or manually set shutter speeds.
The Leica M-E camera's most distinctive feature is a minimalistic, purist, design statement. The top deck and base plate are discreetly finished in unobtrusive anthracite grey. The design of its body expresses clarity, and its leather trim offers superior grip. The application of a new leather trim with enhanced grip characteristics ideally complements the camera's timeless design.
