About this item

The Leica M-P Type 240 Full-Frame Still and Video Camera has an unobtrusive appearance, appealing to professional photographers and avid Leica M users. It is an elegant, discrete and faster model to the M-System. The large buffer size of 2GB makes it possible to shoot up to 24 images in full continuous speed of 3 frames per second. With such a buffer size, the new Leica M-P is ready to shoot at almost anytime, thus, the 'decisive moment' is never missed. With the reduced, classic look, without the Leica logo, the Leica M-P has an unobtrusive appearance making it a professional tool with a unique identity. The sapphire glass is extremely scratch resistant and unbreakable, an appealing feature to professional photographers. Leica Camera is the only manufacturer that offers sapphire glass as a camera display protection. The Leica M-P has the classic image field selector which is another appealing feature to professional photographers and avid Leica M users. The Leica M-P is in silver chrome finish.
