The Leica M-series of cameras is probably one of the company’s most iconic lineups, which might explain why they have kept the Leica M7 around for as long as they did. Unfortunately all good things must eventually come to an end, as is the case with the M7 which has since been officially discontinued.
Mirrorless cameras are the happy middle between a compact camera and a DSLR, where it can be small and portable but yet offer up DSLR-quality images and also the ability to swap lenses.

Think of mirrorless camera systems and your mind might jump to the likes of Sony, who has been making some pretty good headway with its A-series of mirrorless cameras. Given that these days consumers seem to want cameras that can take high-quality images but also be compact, it is easy to see how the mirrorless system is the perfect option.
In terms of design, Master & Dynamic have been killing it as of late, having recently taken the wrap off a set of speakers made out of concrete. However it looks like they’re not quite done. The company has recently announced that they have teamed up with Leica who will be helping them redesign some of their signature headphone models.
The Leica M9 was introduced back in 2009 and we guess it was inevitable that it would be succeeded and sure enough, Leica has officially announced the Leica M10, the company’s latest digital rangefinder camera, a camera that maintains the design of older Leica cameras, while stuffing hi-tech camera tech under its hood.

Leica announced its T digital mirrorless camera about two years ago and while it looked promising, it did have some drawbacks like slow autofocus.

These days our smartphone cameras have gotten so advanced in terms of hardware and software that in some instances, they could completely replace compact cameras. However the question is, how will the iPhone 7 fare against one of the most expensive camera brands in the market today, Leica?
In 2015, Leica announced the Leica Q. This is a full-frame camera with a fixed lens, so in some ways you might be able to compare the Leica Q to Sony’s RX1R II.

Leica is a brand known by photographers as being a high-end brand for cameras. Now the company has lent their name and brand to other camera manufacturers before, and earlier this year, they lent their name and expertise and technology to Huawei which resulted in the Huawei P9, a smartphone with a dual lens camera setup with Leica’s name on it.
Leica, a company known for their very expensive and almost exclusive cameras is certainly dipping their toes into pretty much every aspect of the camera market, such as going full-frame mirrorless with the Leica SL.

Leica is a company known for their high-end cameras which are almost legendary in status in the photography world. However it seems that in recent times, the company has been expanding its portfolio to try and appeal to as many customers as possible, and their latest effort comes in the form of an instant camera.
When the Huawei P9 was launched, the company boasted that the handset featured a dual-lens camera setup that also came with the Leica branding.

So the Leica M-D Typ 262 is a camera that we have been hearing about recently. However what makes the camera so unique is the fact that in a world where LCD displays on cameras are expected, the M-D Typ 262 does not come with an LCD screen on the back of the camera. Instead on the back of the camera, all we are treated to is an ISO dial.
