Yet more retro looking digital cameras. Only this snapper, the Digilux II, is from top-end brand Leica and behaves in almost every department like an analogue camera. Most notably its design and the layout of the controls are identical to Leica’s well-established film cameras.
As you’d expect from Leica the lens is pretty special with a maximum aperture of F2.0 at wide angle and F2.4 at telephoto. The camera takes five mega pixel images, features a 3.2xoptical zoom lens and a transflective 2.5inch LCD monitor. Images are stored on Secure Digital (SD) cards.
It goes on sale in February. No news on price yet. You can find more details here.
