Fairly Long Maximum Camera Shutter Speed

With a maximum camera shutter speed of 60 seconds, the M-P (Typ 240) has a quite long maximum camera shutter speed compared to most of the other digital cameras of this spec and age. Digital cameras that were released around the same time as the M-P (Typ 240) have maximum camera shutter speeds of between 0.25s and 60s.

Chart Edit

Has Nine White Balance Modes

The number of white balance modes found on the M-P (Typ 240) is more than most MILC digital cameras that were released around the same time as it. This Leica digital camera has an Auto white balance mode, which is the most frequently found white balance mode found on MILC digital cameras that were released around the same time as the M-P (Typ 240). The white balance modes "Cloudy", "Custom modes", "Daylight", "Flash", "Fluorescent H", "Fluorescent L", "Shade" and "Tungsten" are also found on this camera.

5952 X 3976 Pixels Maximum Image Resolution

The M-P (Typ 240) has a 5952 x 3976 pixels maximum image resolution which is higher than the 5472 x 3648 pixels maximum image resolution found on most similar spec cameras that have been around for more than a year. Cameras of a comparable age and spec to the M-P (Typ 240) maximum image resolutions range from 1280 x 1024 pixels to 8688 x 5792 pixels.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 Pixels Video Resolution

This digital camera supports a video resolution of 640 x 480|1280 x 720|1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many digital cameras of this age and type. A video resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels is equivalent to Full HD video. You will require a Full HD TV or better to appreciate this level of detail.

Chart Edit

LCD Display

This camera has an LCD display, which is the most commonly found display on similar spec cameras that were launched around the same time as it. LCD is the most common display type used in digital cameras. LCD displays are relatively cheap to manufacture but their limitations lie in narrow viewing angles and the displays do not perform well in direct sunlight.

14 Reasons Against

Price Has Recently Increased by £495.03

In the last 37 days the price of the M-P (Typ 240) has increased by £495.03.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most of the other digital cameras of a comparable spec and age to the M-P (Typ 240) support WiFi connectivity, however the M-P (Typ 240) does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Flash

Most MILC digital cameras that are a similar age to the M-P (Typ 240) do not have a built-in flash. The Leica M-P (Typ 240) is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in flash.

We think you might also be interested in alternative digital cameras which also have a built-in flash including the Leica M Monochrom (£4,897.00) which also has a higher rating.

The M-P (Typ 240) does not support video recording, although it is worth noting that most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that were released more than a year ago also do not support video recording.

Chart Edit

Not Waterproof

The M-P (Typ 240) is not waterproof, although this is within the context that most of the other cameras of this type and age are also not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

Most digital cameras of a similar age and spec to the M-P (Typ 240) do not have an image stabiliser. The Leica M-P (Typ 240) is no exception to this as it too does not have an image stabiliser.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other similar spec cameras that have been available for more than a year, the M-P (Typ 240) is not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a GPS

The M-P (Typ 240) does not have a GPS, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other MILC digital cameras that have been on the market for more than a year also do not have a GPS.

Chart Edit

Expensive

Cameras of a similar spec and age range in price from £127 to £5,000. We think that this Leica digital camera looks expensive compared to other cameras of a similar spec and age.

Very Low JPEG Frame Rate

The average JPEG frame rate of MILC digital cameras that were released around the same time as the M-P (Typ 240) is 41fps, and the JPEG frame rates range from 24fps to 60fps. The M-P (Typ 240) has one of the lower JPEG frame rates (only 25 frames per second) amongst comparable spec cameras of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Maximum ISO Speed

The maximum ISO speeds of digital cameras of a comparable age and type to the M-P (Typ 240) range from 6,400 to 410,000, and the average maximum ISO speed is 46,000. With a maximum ISO speed of only 6,400, the M-P (Typ 240) has a quite low maximum ISO speed compared to most of the other cameras of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Very Heavy

With a weight of 680 grams, the M-P (Typ 240) is one of the heavier MILC digital cameras that are a comparable age to the M-P (Typ 240) amongst comparable spec cameras of this age. The average weight of similar spec digital cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the M-P (Typ 240) is 370g, and the weights range from 180g to 680g.

We compared all the other 680g digital cameras to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Leica M Monochrom (£4,897.00) is also worth considering.
