Grand Prize: Leica M10-R Digital Rangefinder Camera Body

Redefining image quality – The Leica M10-R opens up new dimensions of image quality with its high resolution of over 40 megapixels. The image sensor captures even the smallest details, so photographers can dive deeper into every scene. Defying conventional wisdom, where increased resolution means sacrificing low-light performance, the M10-R boasts a much higher megapixel count over its 24 megapixel M10 brethren while also delivering lower levels of noise – ensuring it can be used in any and all environments for a wide range of photographic disciplines. 

No other M-Camera is geared towards maximum image quality in such an uncompromising manner like the Leica M10-R. Thus the camera fully realizes the capabilities of the prime M-Lenses and offers new stylistic and compositional approaches to the photographer.

Its base sensitivity of ISO 100, combined with fast Leica M-lenses, makes it easy and flexible for shooting wide open and achieving maximum background blur and strong bokeh even in bright daytime light.

On the other end of the spectrum, the new sensor allows for a longer maximum exposure time of 16 minutes, lending the user more creative freedom when capturing star trails, motion blur, or bringing out the tiniest amount of light in a nighttime landscape. All of this versatility at these new heights of resolution and higher dynamic range make the M10-R an imaging powerhouse for any application.

The Leica M10-R is more than just a big megapixel count. Its image quality is supported further by other vital components to ensure a complete package of imaging prowess.

Second Prize: Oskar Barnack: From the Idea to the Leica ($60 Value)

In 2015, the LHSA Board approved a project to translate, publish and sell the English edition of Ulf Richter’s excellent book: Oskar Barnack – From the Idea to the Leica.  

Ulf Richter spent years assembling the material to allow him to write this outstanding book on the life of Oskar Barnack and the development of The Camera that Revolutionized Photography. The book contains many photographs of the early Leica cameras, pictures associated with Barnack’s life, illustrations from Barnack’s workbooks, and detailed drawings of the camera mechanisms. The Appendix contains copies of selected patents and an extended selection of references. An interesting fact is that the Lecia M10 is essentially the same size as the Leica I (A).

This book will make a fine edition to the library of any Leica owner, historian or any photography enthusiast.

You probably get this A LOT but is the new sweepstakes available to Australian residents? I can’t find a definite answer in the T&C’s.

Let me know,

    HI Alex, the rules say that the sweepstakes is void where prohibited. Since it is impossible for us to know what is legal in every country, it is the responsibility of the person entering the sweepstakes to know if it is legal in their country. Thank you!

Fingers crosssssseddddddddd
