Leica Camera announced that it will hold a new product launch conference at 10 pm on January 13, and it is likely to release a new professional full-frame side-axis camera M11, which is expected to cost around 7,000 euros (about 50,750 yuan).

The specifications of the side-axis camera M11 have been exposed, it will use 60.3 million pixels of full-frame CMOS, use the Maestro III processor, the screen is 2.95 inches, the body has built-in 64G storage space, and support UHS-II SD expansion for high-speed data transfer.

With a CMOS of up to 60.3 million pixels, Leica’s previous lenses may not be able to feed this CMOS, which means that Leica players need to buy new lenses to achieve a relatively good imaging effect. Higher pixels can have better resolution, and you can see more details when zoomed in.

The CMOS has been upgraded to 60.3 million pixels, and the body is only 64GB of storage, which means that users must buy some high-speed SD cards, and supporting UHS-II SD expansion can better meet this demand.

The Leica M series, as one of the few professional-grade side-axis cameras, is still loved by many wealthy niche enthusiasts.

Side axis cameras, i.e. viewfinders and imaging lenses use separate optical paths

, This will inevitably cause parallax, there will be distance problems in focus, and there may be problems with poor focus in scenes such as shooting macro.

The electronic bypass system has a ruler that shows the focusing distance so that the user can have an estimate and not get too wrong. This requires users to adapt for a long time, and users who are accustomed to autofocus, especially Sony cameras with excellent focusing performance, may be very uncomfortable with the Leica M series.

In terms of design, the black version is made of magnesium alloy and aluminum alloy, and the silver version is made of magnesium alloy and brass. High-end Leica cameras, many parts are still handmade, with a leather body, the texture of the whole machine is very good. It has to be said that Leica, as the inventor of full-frame, has a history of nearly 100 years, and after entering the era of electronic digital cameras, the brand image has also been established very well, maintaining its own German imaging style, and firmly establishing a foothold in the high-end market. However, the price is not very close to the people, and ordinary users still choose Sony, Canon, Fujifilm and the like.
