Leica M11 Rangefinder Digital Camera

The M11 is built around a 60MP BSI CMOS sensor. This is a considerable jump from the 24MP of the M10 and the 40MP of the M10-R. Critically, though, it’s also a move to a back-side illuminated pixel structure.

BSI sensors put the light-sensitive part of the pixel closer to the front of the chip. In small chips this has a noise benefit by shifting the wiring out of the way and making a larger proportion of each pixel light-sensitive, but in sensors with relatively large pixels, the greater benefit stem more from the fact that the light-sensitive region is at the very front surface of the chip, rather than being set down into the pixel a little.

Iconic Design: The Leica M-Family is known for its premium look and feel. With a carefully optimized design and the use of high-quality aluminium for the top cover, the black Leica M11 is focused on efficiency and ergonomics, with noticeably less weight. Together with the new scratch-resistant matte paint finish, the black M11 is about 20% lighter than the silver-chrome version, which features a classic solid brass top cover.

The new M-Sensor: Stay flexible and choose from 60, 36 or 18 Megapixel resolution for DNG and JPG: The exclusively developed Full Frame BSI CMOS Sensor with Triple Resolution Technology in the M11 is a masterpiece of imaging technology. With its new filter technology, the M11 produces brilliant images when combined with the legendary Leica M-lenses. And for the first time, multi-field light metering while shooting in rangefinder mode allows Leica M photographers to concentrate even more on their subject, and less on light metering.

Maestro III Processor: The fluid and responsive operation of the M11 is in part thanks to the powerful Maestro III processor. Its advanced algorithm enables the M11 to produce images with three different resolutions always using the full sensor and delivering unprecedented digital image quality. This incredible processor allows you to shoot nearly endlessly even at 36 Megapixel DNG resolution.

Wide ISO- and Dynamic Range: The M11 is impressive in every lighting environment. With its Dual Pixel Gain technology, the M11 offers a dynamic range of up to 15 stops at ISO 64. Every shot shows the finest tonal separations and very low noise with a natural and elegant look. The maximum sensitivity of ISO 50,000 enables you to take pictures even in extremely low light situations. There is also now more opportunities to shoot in very bright situations with fast lenses, with shutter speeds up to 1/16000s thanks to the new electronic shutter.

High-Resolution Touch Display: Examine your images on the crystal clear 2.3 Million Pixe touch display, with 800 nits brightness and 100% sRGB color gamut. The new Status Screen grants direct access to all important functions and with an additional function button on the top plate, the Leica M11 provides more options to customize the camera to your personal needs.

Connectivity: The Leica M11 is a certified Made for iPhone and iPad product equipped with advanced connectivity abilities. This will enable even more features for the Leica FOTOS app, including over-the-air software updates, available through a new firmware download in the second half of 2022.
