Renowned for their attention to detail and remarkable handmade factory process, Leica have unveiled their new camera line, the T-System. With a solid body milled from a single 1kg block of aluminium, the camera features a 16.5-megapixel APS-C sensor, full HD video cpature, WiFi integration and a gorgeous 3.7″ touchscreen, but what you don’t see straight away that are the real selling points.



Linking to an iPhone or iPad through the new Leica T app, you are able to remotely viewfind, take shots and adjust the aperture and shutter speed. Then you can transfer the photos instantly to easy sharing or on the go editing. The camera also packs 16GB of internal memory and includes an SD card slot, the clever Easy-Click system for quickly attaching and removing a holding strap with no fuss and Leica’s new high-resolution Visoflex electronic accessory viewfinder, designed exclusively for the T-System. Able to title and swivel, it means you’re able to shoot from all angles through the a viewfinder, and switches off the touchscreen as soon as you look though.

The Leica T will hit stores on May 26th in aluminium, with the anodised black version set to follow in July. Find out more on their site: www.en.leica-camera.com/Photography/T-System/Leica-T
