There are almost as many cameras out there as there are applications. The temptation is to pick up a camera that is dedicated to each purpose, but that has the drawback of having to be certain that you have the right camera with you when opportunity knocks. The Leica M Typ 240 offers creative freedom by being applicable to any situation.
First, the Leica M Typ 240 can be used for capturing 1080p full-HD video. You maintain complete control over the recording, deciding on exposure and other recording parameters, which gives you the ability to take still images from the video and turn them into stunning photographs. The Typ 240 offers the signature, premium quality Leica look with high resolution and high speed for your video needs.
Or if you’re looking for a camera that is suitable for studio settings, the Typ 240 is perfect. You can pick up a detachable handgrip that offers multiple functions. Use the Typ 240 for tethered shooting and let the camera send image data directly to your computer via its USB port. You can also connect to a studio flash system, and still use EVF at the same time. And you don’t have to rely on the camera’s battery as you can use the matched mains adapter.
Speaking of the battery, the Typ 240 battery can stretch through long periods without needing to be recharged thanks to its energy-saving exposure metering electronics. That means you can stay out in the field longer, waiting for that perfect shot.
And of course, the camera has the famed Leica quality when it comes to capturing those perfect images. Using a high resolution, 24-megapixel CMOS sensor in a full-frame format, the Typ 240 can deliver detailed images even at higher sensitivities up to ISO 6400. Plus its processor has your images ready much more quickly and with more reliability than other cameras.
That reliability also applies to the camera’s body—you can have the Typ 240 out in any conditions and not worry about whether it will survive. Plus, it can accept Leica’s many lenses, and you have the option of creating your own, unique M-Camera with Leica’s a la carte service.
In other words, the Typ 240 is the camera you need regardless of the situation.
