Users will be able to change camera settings and trigger the shutter. Another modern update is changes to the camera's Live View function, including focus peaking and adjustable/moveable magnification. Also, a programmable Favorites menu is available. The camera will be available in silver chrome or black chrome.

Various accessories are being made to complement the M10, including the new BP-SCL5 Li-Ion Battery Pack and BC-SCL5 Battery Charger. A dedicated Display Protection Foil for the rear LCD will keep it scratch-free while also reducing reflections. Also, a set of Correction Lenses II can help perform dioptric adjustments to the viewfinder for more comfortable viewing. Users can still adapt their older correction lenses and the Anglefinder M by using this Thread Adapter. And, for those looking for a better grip on their camera, new Thumb Supports and Hand Grips are being produced in matching finishes.

In terms of soft goods, custom-made Leather Protectors provide style and security for your M10 while Leather Carrying Straps will provide added comfort on long days.
