M-D (typ 262)

Leica Rangefinder


The M-D (Typ 262) from Leica is a digital rangefinder camera and the first of the digital M family to be made without a monitor screen. An ISO sensitivity dial has been added to the back of the camera, in place of where the screen would usually be found. While the M-D features all the technical benefits of being part of the Leica rangefinder system, it is streamlined to include only the most essential parameters required for photography; shutter speed, aperture, distance and ISO sensitivity. By deliberately omitting additional controls it allows you to focus on the process of creating.

Like the other digital M-Cameras, it features a high-resolution 24-megapixel CMOS full-frame sensor, exclusively dedicated for rangefinder photography, so supports neither video recording nor Live View. Exposures are saved exclusively as RAW data in DNG format, and a Maestro processor guarantees fast processing of captured image data.

The design of the Leica M-D is sleek and purely functional, with a black paint finish, and the Leica red dot logo has been omitted from the front of the camera to maintain an unobtrusive appearance. A near-silent shutter and shutter cocking system further benefits working inconspicuously. In continuous mode, it is capable of shooting up to three frames per second.

It comes with a real-leather carrying strap in full-grain cowhide.

M-D (typ 262)

Leica Rangefinder


Camera type Leica M-D (Typ 262), compact digital view and range
Lens attachment Leica M bayonet with additional sensor for 6-bit coding
Lens system Leica M lenses from 16 – 135mm
Picture format/image sensor CMOS type, active area approx. 23.9 x 35.8mm
Resolution 5976 x 3992 pixels (24MP)
Data format DNGTM (raw data), compressed loss-free, JPEG
Buffer memory 1GB
Storage medium SD cards up to 2GB, SDHC cards up to 32GB, SDXC
Exposure metering Ambient light: Through the lens (TTL), with working aperture, flash light: TTL metering with system-
compatible, SCA-3000/2-standard flash units
Metering principle/method Metering the light reflected by light blades of the 1st shutter curtain onto a measuring cell: heavily center-
weighted
Sensitivity range ISO 200 to ISO 6400, can be set manually in 1/3 ISO steps
Exposure mode Choice of automatic shutter speed control with manual aperture preselection - aperture priority A, or manual shutter speed and aperture setting
Flash unit attachment Via accessory shoe with central and control contacts
Flash sync time 1/180s; slower shutter speeds can be used if sync time is not met: automatic switching to TTL linear flash mode with HSS-compatible Leica system flash units
Flash exposure metering With system-compatible flash units, control with center-
weighted TTL pre-flash metering
Flash exposure compensation Flash units with the appropriate specifications: in all modes ±3EV in 1/3 EV steps
Displays in flash mode Readiness: by means of constant lighting of the flash symbol LED in the viewfinder, success control: by further lighting or temporary fast flashing of the LED after the picture has been taken, underexposure display: by the LED going out temporarily
Viewfinder principle Large, bright line frame viewfinder with automatic parallax ompensation
Eyepiece Calibrated to -0.5 dpt.; corrective lenses from -3 to +3 diopter available
Image field limiter By activating two bright lines each: For 35 and 135mm, or for 28 and 90mm, or for 50 and 75mm; automatic switching when lens is attached; frame color: white
Parallax compensation The horizontal and vertical difference between the viewfinder and lens is automatically balanced by moving the bright-line frame in line with the relevant distance setting
Matching viewfinder and 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
Magnification (For all lenses) 0.68 x
Large-base range finder Split or superimposed image range finder shown as a bright field in the center of the viewfinder image
Effective metering basis 47.1mm (mechanical measurement basis 69.25mm x viewfinder magnification 0.68x)
Displays Four-digit digital display with dots above and below, displays
Shutter Metal blade focal plane shutter with vertical movement
Shutter speeds For aperture priority: (A) continuous from 60s to 1/4000s, with manual setting: 8s to 1/4000s in half steps, B: for long-time exposures up to max. 60s, (1/180s): Fastest shutter speed for flash synchronization, HSS linear flash mode possible with all shutter speeds faster than 1/180s with Leica system flash units with appropriate specifications
Activation of shutter release button By integrated motor, low noise operation
Shutter release button Two-stage, 1. Activation of exposure metering and exposure lock (in aperture priority mode), 2. Resolution
Turning the camera on/off With main switch on the camera top panel, reactivation by touching the shutter release button
