Pairing an APS-C sensor with a compact body is all the rage these days, and now Leica's getting in on the act with the Leica X Camera. This compact shooter combines a 16.2 megapixel CMOS sensor with a fast Leica Summilux 23 mm f/1.7 lens, giving you an angle of view equivalent to a classic 35mm lens, and absolutely stunning bokeh when used wide-open. Other features include a macro focusing distance of just 0.2 meters, a sturdy body made from magnesium and anodized aluminum, premium leather trim, 1080p video recording, a 3-inch LCD, and plenty of physical controls for manual operation, including dedicated rings and dials for focusing, shutter speed, and aperture.
Every once in a while, you might hear an old photo curmudgeon long for the days when you had to take a whole roll of film — and develop it — before you knew what you had. Recapture that simpler time with the Leica M Edition 60 Camera. Created to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the M System rangefinder, this is a fully modern camera, featuring a 24 megapixel full-frame sensor and a fast Summilux 35mm f/1.4 lens, but it replaces the rear LCD monitor and controls with a simple ISO selector dial. The result? You need to control things manually, and you can't see what you've taken until after you're done shooting, just like an analogue camera. Only 600 individually-numbered units will be available, so if you're looking to take a firm step back in time, you'd best get your order in now.
