Celebrating 100 years of being boss, Leica introduce another covetable camera, the Leica T 701, the company’s first mirrorless, non-rangefinder digital camera. Designed alongside the good folk at Audi, a business that knows a thing or two about clean lines, the industrial body is machined from a single block of aluminium, the aim with this model, to strip the camera back to just the essentials – “Perfection is simplicity” as Leica put it. A spec list far too long to include in its entirety, the basics; A CMOS 16.5 megapixel image sensor (built by Sony), integrated Wi-Fi, interchangeable lenses, a high-resolution electronic viewfinder, a 3.7 inch touch screen, built-in memory, a new Leica SF 26 flash unit and full HD video. So good they had to build a whole new German factory just to manufacture it.
Available Worldwide in silver from May 26th, the black model to follow later this year. Head to the gallery and press play below.
