Leica Has Unveiled Its First Instant Camera

  • Posted 19 months Ago

Leica has unveiled a camera that's a little more accessible that it's usual 1,000+ models - an instant camera that uses Fujifilm's Instax film to instantly produce prints.

Named the Leica Sofort, the camera has a retro-aesthetic while retaining classic Leica elements like the leather-pattern edging and the iconic red badge. It will feature automatic modes like party, people, sport, action, macro, and standard auto and will also be able to produce multiple exposures on one print. Of course, for the modern day no camera is complete without a "selfie mode", so Leica has given us a "self portrait" mode complete with a mirror on the front to help you frame your shots.

The Leica Sofort will be available from November in white, orange, or mint green and will retail for $299 (approx. 225).
