The Leica MD is a digital camera for purist … free screensaver!
Leica made the big difference. Having demonstrated a modernism and an unexpected democratism, with touch controls for cameras and Wi-Fi, the German brand returns to the fundamentals. And that’s saying something.
Leica did announce last week a digital camera… not screen! The manufacturer has already proposed such a device, but it was a limited edition. The Leica MD (type 262) is itself a production model.
The Leica MD “voluntarily departs all the technical possibilities unimaginable”. It has neither the Wi-Fi, or any other connection. He gives up the video and the live view . It lacks flash and autofocus same, but this time it is characteristic of a Leica rangefinder camera.
The Leica MD is content with the basics: it only has a rangefinder, a setting dial and the shutter speed of a trigger. The diaphragm rings and development of distance being on the lens. All that distinguishes this model of a film M is the setting dial sensitivity from 200 to 6400 replacing the screen on the back of the unit.
The device also contains the electronics of the Leica M Type 240 standard, that is to say its CMOS sensor 24 x 36 mm 24 million pixels and Maestro processor. It only records standard RAW format Adobe DNG SD card.
Leica ® type 262 is available now for the tidy sum of 6,000 euros, with a leather belt, but of course without lens.
