Reddotcameras.co.uk is already taking preorders on the yet still to be announced new Leica M-D camera. The description text says:
The new Leica M-D (Typ 262) is a new M camera variation dedicated to the essence of M: Rangefinder photography. The purest form of the manual digital rangefinder
– Full mechanic control of all photographic functions thanks to the ISO speed dial
-24 MP-Still-CMOS sensor with Leica Maestro processor, ISO values of up to 6,400
In the case of the Leica M-D, the realisation of the purist concept consciously omits additional functions such as Live View or Video. All of which allow photographers to concentrate on what’s essential: the subject. It concentrates attention entirely on composition. It consistently shifts the focus to the creative aspects of each subject – less technology for more creativity.
The purist design lacks a display and menu system, along with the Leica red dot logo and in keep with the classic M deisgn brings back the step on the top plate.
Made in Germany
Includes genuine leather camera strap, 2 year warranty and free 16gb SD card
Camera comes in a black paint finish
