The Ghost In The Cabinet - The New Leica TL
Of course once one of the dedicated black leica lenses is attached to it, everything comes into focus (Yes, I got away with that one...) but there is no denying the exquisite design lines of the New Leica TL.
This is one of those cameras that sends images to mobile phones, tablets, or computers and can be controlled from that phone. Of course the social media sites can be accessed to show your dinner to everyone you know.
You also have such assistance as an inbuilt 32 Gb memory to act as a back-up for the memory card and the ability to charge the battery in-camera from a USB port.
You see the world on the screen - there is no integral viewfinder. However , you can choose to slot an accessory electronic viewfinder onto the camera's hot shoe and see exactly what the lens sees. If you'd rather use that shoe for a more powerful flash than the one that is built into the camera, Leica have a range of sizes and powers to suit. You can add an adaptor to use all of your Leica M and R lenses as well. Nothing is wasted so you are really economising...
As a matter of fact, you may want to be really frugal and get several of these cameras for the holiday period. They are in stock right now at Camera Electronic - either at the Stirling Street or Murray Street store. I should get one of each colour, if I were you.
