1.Has a flip-out screen
Leica M10-R
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Leica M10-R
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.Has a built-in focus motor
Leica M10-R
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.


We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
5.has an optical viewfinder
Leica M10-R
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens will capture. OVFs have no time lag and require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders, which can drain battery life. OVFs are also better in low light situations.
6.Has a hot shoe
Leica M10-R
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.


1.sensor size

36 x 24mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.megapixels (main camera)


The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
3.maximum light sensitivity

50000 ISO

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
4.continuous shooting at high resolution


Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
5.has AF tracking
Leica M10-R
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
6.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Leica M10-R
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.


1.Has phase-detection autofocus for videos
Leica M10-R
A phase-detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.
2.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Leica M10-R
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
3.Has timelapse function
Leica M10-R
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
4.has a 24p cinema mode
Leica M10-R
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
5.supports slow-motion video recording
Leica M10-R
Slow-motion is an artistic video effect that makes time seem to go slower. It is achieved by recording a video at a higher frame-rate than the standard playback rate of 24fps or 30fps. Frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.
6.supports AVCHD format
Leica M10-R
AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.


1.has a stereo microphone
Leica M10-R
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
2.has a microphone input
Leica M10-R
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
3.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Leica M10-R
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
4.Has a zoom microphone
Leica M10-R
Zoom microphones record high-quality audio and enable you to record sound from a distance. They can be useful for recording meetings, lectures, and presentations.
5.has stereo speakers
Leica M10-R
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.


1.has a removable battery
Leica M10-R
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
2.has a rechargeable battery
Leica M10-R
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
3.has a battery level indicator
Leica M10-R
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
4.battery power


Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
5.has wireless charging
Leica M10-R
The manufacturer offers a branded wireless charging kit. To charge the device, you simply put it down on its charging base.


1.supports Wi-Fi
Leica M10-R
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
2.color depth


The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. Source: DxOMark.
3.Has a remote control
Leica M10-R
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
4.has an external memory slot
Leica M10-R
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
5.supports Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)
Leica M10-R
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
6.has an HDMI output
Leica M10-R
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
