The Leica M (Typ 262) is a digital rangefinder camera announced by Leica Camera on November 19, 2015.[1] The shutter and cocking mechanism are much quieter than in the earlier and higher-priced M Typ 240, and allow two frames per second to be recorded in single shot mode.[2] The model omits the Typ 240's live view and video capabilities, and has a much simpler menu structure and one-button access to white balance settings.[2]
