The M11 is Proof Leica Should Stick to Rangefinders

Leica has historically been known for rangefinder-style cameras but has branched away in recent years. But if there is one thing the company should take away from the praise the new M11 is getting, it's that it should stick with what it's good at.

Sam Hurd’s PIXII Rangefinder Review: It’s Complicated

Sam Hurd recently published a video review of the PIXII Rangefinder: a rear-LCD-less, smartphone-connected, M-mount rangefinder developed by PIXII, an upstart camera manufacturer. And while his introductory statement that it is the "worst camera I have ever owned" does more to get the click than convey his actual opinion, it doesn't look like the PIXII is a camera you should be picking up just yet despite some extremely promising design choices.

The Pixii M-Mount Rangefinder Has No Display or Card Slots, Costs $3,300

Almost two years ago, the French startup PIXII announced the development of a "radical" M-mount digital rangefinder that had neither a rear display nor any sort of memory card slot. Now, this strange camera is finally available for brave early-adopters to order... if you're willing to drop 3 grand, that is.

Beautiful Behind the Scenes Film Shows the Making of the Leica M10

This beautifully-shot film from 2017 has been making the rounds again this morning, showing the making/assembly of the Leica M10.

18-Year-Old Retrofits an Old Konica Rangefinder with a Sony NEX APS-C Sensor, and It Works

There are only a small number of cameras on the market these days that allow you to shoot digital photos while manually focusing with a working rangefinder. These cameras also cost quite a bit, so they're not exactly the type of thing most enthusiasts can pick up on a whim and play with.

Ollie Baker wanted one, but instead of paying the big bucks for one, he decided to convert an old film rangefinder into a working digital rangefinder.

A First Look at the Image Quality of the New Leica M at High ISOs

Leica's new flagship digital rangefinder, the Leica M, was announced more than a month ago, but things have been very quiet in regards to sample photos demonstrating the camera's capabilities. If you've been dying see actual photos shot using the camera, today's your lucky day. Pandachief over at the forum HK LFC has published quite a few sample photographs shot in a low-light environment (it appears to be a dinner party).

Leica Announces the M Monochrom Black and White Digital Rangefinder

Leica has officially announced its new monochrome digital rangefinder, the M Monochrom -- the world's first digital camera to do dedicated black and white photography. The camera features a newly designed 18-megapixel monochrome CCD sensor and "100% sharper imaging" due to the fact that raw data is processed directly without interpolation. The monochrome sensor allows the camera to achieve extremely low noise even upwards of ISO 10,000, and various programmed tones can be used to adjust the look and feel of the black and white photographs. It'll cost $7,950 when it hits store shelves starting in late July 2012.
