As part of the 40th anniversary celebration of the Leica Oscar Barnack Photography Awards, Leica Camera Company released a specially designed version of the Leica M10-P camera: M10-P “Reporter” is a piece of news out of the box Reporting cameras can even adapt to the harshest environments. Leica has launched a lot of cameras that are made according to the needs of journalists and news photographers.
This can be reflected in outstanding models such as the Leica 250 camera in 1933, which can hold 250 films in its film compartment; and the Leica MP in 1956, which is based on the Leica M3 and referenced famous photographers ( As suggested by Alfred Eisenstaedt, 1898–1995) and (David Douglas Duncan, 1916–2018), the Leicavit fast film feeder was added.
The strong, scratch-resistant dark green coating of the Leica M10-P “Reporter Edition” camera coupled with the Kevlar body finish can not help but recall the challenging environmental conditions that created many outstanding news reports of this era. Kevlar is a synthetic fiber commonly used in the production of bulletproof clothing.
Under natural ultraviolet radiation, the finish of the body will gradually become the same color as the top and bottom of the camera. The diamond pattern on the finish gives the Leica M10-P “Reporter Edition” camera higher friction and grip comfort.
All the lettering on the fuselage is light green, which is more low-key than the white lettering usually used on the black fuselage. The technical specifications of the M10-P “Reporter Edition” camera are exactly the same as the Leica M10-P series produced. The Leica M10-P “Reporter Edition” camera is now available for sale on Leica’s exclusive retail network, and is limited to 450 sets worldwide.
