The black Leica T Mirrorless Digital Camera is a compact interchangeable lens camera body featuring a 16.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor housed in a solid aluminum alloy unibody design with the Leica T lens mount for attaching optional lenses. This works well with the 1.3 million pixel 3.7" TFT LCD touchscreen on the rear of the camera in order to create a simple, high-quality system with a modern aesthetic. The Leica T is also very user-friendly due to the ability to customize the menu and easily scroll through settings using the touch screen as well as adjust settings using two dials on the top of the camera.
For shooting, the camera is very capable with a contrast-based autofocus system that works well with Leica T-mount lenses. Also, it can shoot continuously at up to 5 fps for up to 12 shots. Another feature of the camera is full high definition video recording at 1920 x 1080p at 30 fps, easily done by pressing the record button located on the top of the camera.
Other built-in features include a flash unit with a guide number of 15' at ISO 100 for low-light shooting conditions as well as 16 GB of internal memory for storing your images. This memory can be added to through the use of SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards as well. The camera even has Wi-Fi connectivity and is able to directly connect to iOS devices through the use of the Leica App T. The camera also includes a carrying strap with a quick connect method.
To ensure maximum functionality, be sure to download and install the latest firmware update from the Leica website.
Autofocusing is done on-sensor due to a mirrorless design through a contrast-based method. This allows for accurate focusing on your subject. The camera's touchscreen is able to assist by allowing for quick selection of subjects in the image.
The top of the camera body features both a pop-up flash unit with a guide number of 15' at ISO 100 and a standard ISO hot shoe for using a variety of flash units as well as for using additional accessories, such as the electronic viewfinder.
