Leica's New Digital Camera Doesn't Have an LCD Screen

  • Posted 24 months Ago

Leica is bucking the trends in digital photography and, according to some leaked imagery, has completely removed the LCD screen from its new camera. The Leica M-D Typ 262 looks much the same as any other Leica M, but the lack of a screen encourages users to focus on the subject of the photo rather than endlessly scrolling through menu options. It also means there will be no image preview, so photographers will actually have to put more effort into each image rather than taking 100 and hoping for the best - something that's reminiscent of analog cameras. On the tech side, the camera has a 24 megapixel sensor, a Leica Maestro image processor, and a SDHC/SDXC storage slot. The price is yet to be unveiled but it was briefly listed on Red Dot cameras for 4,650.
