Leica launches special edition M10-P "Reporter" camera, designed for journalists and writers

Leica launches special edition M10-P "Reporter" camera, designed for journalists and writers

Leica M10-P "Reporter".

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Leica Oskar Barnack Award, Leica launched the M10-P "Reporter", a special edition of one of its popular M series models.

The M10-P "Reporter" uses a scratch-resistant finish brought out by its Kelvar camera trim, and it's meant to weather the challenging conditions of photo-journalistic reportage. The body armour is built for a weathered look; according to Leica, by exposing the device to natural UV rays, the body's colour changes to that of its top and base plate.

For extra grip, the body features a diamond-weave texture. Inlaid are light green engravings to differentiate the "Reporter" from regular M10-P shooters with white inlays. Technically, it shares identical specifications with the Leica M10-P, so you're getting a supposedly better grip and cooler appearance.

The only catch? It's unlikely that a modern reporter can actually afford the M10-P "Reporter". Leica Singapore has it listed at S$12,950 (body only, tax included). As a special edition camera, there are only 450 units available worldwide.
