GENERAL INFORMATION
• Do not use your camera in the immediate vicinity of devices that generate powerful magnetic, electrostatic or
electromagnetic fields (e.g. induction ovens, microwave ovens, television sets or computer screens, video game
consoles, cell phones, broadcasting equipment). Their electromagnetic fields can interfere with recordings.
• Strong magnetic fields, e.g. from speakers or large electric motors can damage the stored picture data or disrupt
recording.
• Switch off the camera, remove the battery briefly, replace it and switch the camera back on in case of a camera
malfunction due to the effects of electromagnetic fields.
• Do not use the camera in the immediate vicinity of radio transmitters or high-voltage power lines. Their electromagnetic
fields may interfere with recordings.
• Always store small parts e.g. the accessory shoe cover as follows:
– out of the reach of children
– in a safe location, where they will not get lost or stolen
• State-of-the-art electronic components are sensitive to static discharge. Since people can easily pick up charges of
several 10,000 volts by walking on synthetic carpets, a discharge can occur when you touch the camera, and especially
it is placed on a conductive surface. A static discharge on the camera housing poses no risk for the electronics. Despite
built-in safety circuits, you should avoid direct contact with external camera contacts like those in the flash shoe.
• Take care not to soil or scratch the sensor for lens detection in the bayonet. You must similarly prevent direct contact of
the bayonet with grains of sand or similar particles, as these could cause irreparable damage. This component must only
be cleaned with a dry cloth (in system cameras).
• Use a cotton or linen cloth instead of a microfiber cloth from an optician’s (synthetic) when cleaning the contacts. Make
sure to discharge any electrostatic charge by deliberately touching a heating or water pipe (conductive, grounded
material). Dirt deposits and oxidation on the contacts can be avoided by storing your camera in a dry location with the
lens cap and the flash shoe/viewfinder cap (in system cameras) attached.
• Only use accessories specified for this model to prevent faults, short circuits or electric shock.
• Do not attempt to remove parts of the housing (covers) yourself. Repairs must be done at authorized service centers
only.
• Protect the camera against contact with insect sprays and other aggressive chemicals. Petroleum spirit, thinner and
alcohol must not be used for cleaning. Some chemicals and liquids can damage the camera housing or the surface
finish.
• Rubber and plastics are known to expel aggressive chemicals and should therefore not be kept in contact with the
camera for extended periods of time.
• Prevent any sand or dust or water penetration into the camera, e.g. during snowfall or rain or on the beach. Be extra
careful when changing the lens (in system cameras) and when inserting or removing the memory card and rechargeable
battery. Sand and dust can damage the camera, the lens, the memory card and the battery. Moisture can cause
malfunctions and irreparable damage to the camera and memory card.
LENS
• A camera lens can have the effect of a magnifying glass when exposed to direct frontal sunlight. The camera must
therefore be protected against extended exposure to direct sunlight.
• Attaching the lens cap and keeping the camera in the shade or ideally in its camera case, will help prevent damage to the
interior of the camera.
RECHARGEABLE BATTERY
• Improper use of the batteries or the use of unapproved battery types may result in an explosion!
• Do not expose the rechargeable battery to sunlight, heat, humidity or moisture for prolonged periods of time. Likewise,
the batteries must not be placed in a microwave oven or a high-pressure container as this would pose a fire or explosion
hazard.
• Do not under any circumstances charge or insert a damp or wet battery into the camera!
• A safety valve in the battery ensures that any excess pressure caused by improper handling is discharged safely. It is
nevertheless important to dispose of a bloated battery immediately. It may pose an explosion hazard!
• Keep the battery contacts clean and easily accessible. Although lithium-ion batteries are secured against short circuits,
they should still be protected against contact with metal objects like paper clips or jewelry. A short-circuited battery can
get very hot and cause severe burns.• When a battery is accidentally dropped, make sure to check the housing and the contacts immediately for any damage.
A damaged battery can damage the camera.
• The battery must be removed from the camera or charger and must be replaced immediately in case of a strange smell,
discoloration, deformation, overheating or leakage. Continued use of the battery may result in overheating, which can
cause fire and/or explosion!
• Never throw batteries into a fire as they may explode.
• Keep the battery away from sources of heat in case of leakage or if you smell burning. Leaked fluid can catch fire!
• The use of other chargers not approved by Leica Camera AG can cause damage to the batteries – and in extreme cases
– cause serious or life-threatening injuries.
• Make sure that the power socket is freely accessible at all times.
• The in-car charging cable must never be connected while the charger is connected to mains electricity.
• Do not attempt to open the battery or the charger. Repairs must only be carried out by authorized service centers.
• Keep batteries out of the reach of children. Batteries can cause suffocation when swallowed.
CHARGER
• Using the charger in the vicinity of broadcasting receivers may interfere with reception. Ensure a distance of at least 1 m
(3 ft) between the charger and the receiver.
• When the charger is in use, it may emit a buzzing sound – this is normal and not a malfunction.
• Disconnect the charger from the mains when it is not in use, as it consumes electricity (a very small amount), even if no
battery is inserted.
• Always keep the charger contacts clean, and never short circuit them.
• The in-car charging cable must only be operated in 12V in-car grids and must never be connected while the charger is
connected to mains electricity.
MEMORY CARD
• Never remove the memory card during a datasave or card reading process. The camera must not be switched off or be
subjected to impact or vibrations while working.
• Do not open the cover/remove the memory card or the battery while the status LED is lit, which indicates memory
access. Data on the card may otherwise be destroyed and camera malfunctions may occur.
• Do not drop or bend memory cards as this will cause damage and result in the loss of stored data.
• Do not touch the connections on the reverse of the memory card and keep them clean and dry.
• Keep memory cards out of the reach of children. Swallowing a memory card may cause suffocation.
SENSOR
Cosmic radiation (e.g. during flights) may cause pixel defects.
CARRY STRAP
• Once you have attached the carry strap, please make sure that the clips are mounted correctly to prevent the camera
from falling.
• Carry straps are usually made of very robust material. You should therefore keep it out of the reach of children. A carry
strap is not a toy and poses a strangulation risk.
• Use the carry strap only for its intended purpose on a camera or on binoculars. Any other use poses the risk of injury and
may possibly result in damage to the carry strap and is therefore not permitted.
• Carry straps should also not be used for cameras/binoculars during sports activities that pose a risk of entanglement
(e.g. when mountain climbing and similar outdoor activities).
TRIPOD
• When using a tripod, make sure it is standing securely and turn the camera only by turning the tripod, not the actual
camera.
• Ensure that the tripod screw is hand-tightened only.
• Avoid transporting the camera while the tripod is attached. You might injure yourself or others and the camera could get
damaged.

The use of incompatible flash units with your Leica M10 Monochrom may result in irreparable damage to the camera and/
or the flash unit.REGULATORY INFORMATION
