Leica’s latest looks at the photojournalist, and looks the part as well. The company’s M10-P ‘Reporter’ is dressed in a clinically militant shade of green, and features woven Kevlar around its body for toughness in the field.
The finish of the M10-P ‘Reporter’ is an olive drab and scuff- and scratch-resistant paint. The Kevlar covers the lower part of the camera’s body, and is ideal for a sure grip under stressful or time-sensitive conditions, when getting the shot is a matter of quick response. The model’s shutter is whisper quiet. The foundation of the model is the popular M10 rangefinder, a classic in the field, and the M10-P that followed.
The M10-P ‘Reporter’ calls attention to the 40th anniversary of Leica’s Oskar Barnack Award. Only 450 will be produced. The M10-P ‘Reporter’ is priced at under $10K.
