Leica T Announced: Come See Demonstration on Friday, May 2, 2014

Leica T_Unibody_1Leica announced the newest Leica camera, the Leica T on April 24. The Leica T is Leica’s first interchangeable autofocus compact system camera with an 16.5MP APS-C sized CMOS sensor.

On Friday, May 2, Tom Brichta, Northern California Leica Sales Manager, will have his sample available for demonstration from 11:30am to 2:00pm.


The system is totally convincing. In its reduction to the essentials. Both in its design and its inner technologies. It has everything it needs and nothing more. Minimised, yet so perfect. Never before has taking pictures been this easy. And never before has it felt so good. Find inspiration in the pictures and look forward to seeing many more.


Fulfills the highest expectations.

In the development of the new Leica T-System, we let ourselves be guided by values that have been strongly associated with the Leica name for more than 100 years. Dedication to innovation. Passion for technology. Love of design. Nevertheless, our steps took us down entirely new roads. We reduced everything to the essentials and never lost sight of our clearly defined objective: to create a camera that places the sheer joy of photography back into your hands

A large APS-C sensor with 16.5 megapixels ensures colour fidelity, the finest details and pictures with exceptional brightness and clarity, even in unfavourable lighting conditions. And even on large-format screens. And for pin-sharp videos in full HD resolution. Top performance at the press of a button. Fast, precise and almost silent autofocus. Exactly like the newly developed image processor, which instantaneously displays the results on the big touchscreen display.

Leica lenses enjoy an exceptional reputation. And no wonder – Leica has more than 150 years of experience in the development of precision optical instruments. The T-System is built using our vast know-how and dedication to perfection. The result? Exceptional imaging performance that’s visible in every picture. For the incomparable Leica bokeh.

LEICA-T-DETAILS-IMMER-BESTENS-VERBUNDENThe integrated Wi-Fi module lets you transfer pictures directly from your Leica T to a smartphone, tablet PCs or computer. With the ease of wireless communication. You can also share your pictures quickly and easily on social media or by email with the Leica T app for iOS or the Browser Gallery on Android devices. Particularly practical: With the remote function of the Leica T app, you can, for example, use your smartphone or tablet PC as an electronic viewfinder and shoot with your Leica T by remote control.

The generously sized 3.7″ touchscreen with maximum detail resolution takes up almost the entire back of the camera. Handling is particularly intuitive. Simply touch the screen to focus and compose your picture, and check and review your pictures with a swipe. Simply clever: Set up the menu of your Leica T to meet your personal needs. Then just call up your favourites in the MyCamera menu. You decide what you need.Lots of memory

Forgot to bring along a memory card? No problem – just use the built-in 16 GB memory of the Leica T. Of course, the camera also features a slot for SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards. We really did think of everything. To let you think about nothing but your pictures.
