The Leica brand is one known to photographers around the world, and for the most part the company has released cameras that have been priced out of the amateur photographer’s budget, but if you have £550 to spare, perhaps Leica’s recent announced Leica C camera could be yours for the taking. The Leica C will be part of Leica’s new digital compact camera lineup and at £550 it does not seem overly expensive for a Leica camera, although it might be for a compact camera, but we guess sometimes people don’t mind paying for the brand.
If the Leica C is a camera you’re considering, the camera will sport a 12MP 1/1.7” MOS sensor. It will also come with a fixed-mount lens of that will allow photographers to shoot between 28-200mm, an aperture of f/2.0-5.9, and an integrated electronic viewfinder (EVF). As expected of most cameras these days, the Leica C will also come with WiFi that will allow photographers to wirelessly transfer photos or videos captured onto a mobile device or laptop, along with NFC that can be used with devices, such as smartphones, who have the technology embedded in them.
Other features include a programmable ring around the lens that photographers can use to program to adjust things such as aperture, shutter speed, and zoom. The Leica C will be available in the UK via authorized Leica dealers around mid-September.
