Leica Releases Its Newest Touchscreen Camera That’s Out To Make You Swoon
By Izza Sofia, 11 Jul 2017
Leica just released the new TL2, the compact successor to the original TL, that looks like a modern mirrorless camera.
For US$1,950, you get a giant touchscreen LCD measuring 3.7 inches, a shutter that allows up to a 20 fps shooting speed and 4K video.
The main features are an all-new 24-megapixel sensor and image processor, a big improvement from the original TL’s 16-megapixel chip. It can shoot mechanically at up to 7 fps and in electronic mode at 20 fps, capturing about 100 RAW images. Maximum ISO is now 50,000 and there are 49 focus points instead of nine.
Another big plus is 4K video. You can shoot Ultra HD resolution (3,840 x 2,160) at up to 30 fps, 1080p at 60 fps, or in “slomo” 120 fps mode at 720p. Unfortunately, there are no headphones or microphone ports and no built-in viewfinder.
The camera also includes an SD card, a 32GB internal memory, HDMI, Wi-Fi and USB charging.
Leica TL2 will be available through authorized retailers for US$1,950 in black and silver color options.
