Leica has made it possible to capture authentic black and white photographs while still combining modern digital technology. It is a comprehensive step-by-step guide that includes a pull-out quick reference card. Author David Taylor provides practical tips on how to get the best from this versatile camera. The 24-megapixel Leica M (Typ 240) is the latest digital rangefinder model that replaces the M9. The M is definitely a camera for the 21st century. The first rangefinder to use a full-frame CMOS image sensor, it enables live view, and offers a choice of magnified view or focus peaking for precise through-the-lens manual focusing. It is also the first M model capable of movie shooting, capturing 1080p footage at 25 or 24 frames per second. Compact for a full-frame camera, it measures 3.1 by 5.5 by 1.7 inches, but its brass and magnesium construction gives it a heavy-for-its-size weight of 1.5 pounds. A large optical viewfinder is located in the top right corner of the body and a second, smaller window towards the left.
