Leica Sofort leaks ahead of launch
After its partnership with mobile brand Huawei, Leica appears to be focusing its attention to instant cameras. The Leica Sofort has been leaked even before it was made official.
A photo of a magazine article from the October issue of Leica Fotografie International (LFI) shows this instant camera that gives a preview of what to expect when it launches.
Reportedly, the Sofort will use Fujifilm’s new Instax Mini film and users will be able to buy Leica-branded film packs for color and monochrome.
Leica Rumors later uploaded a product shot that shows the three available colors when it becomes available. Additionally, the camera is expected to accommodate a regular Fuji Instax film, have an optical viewfinder, special shooting modes, and implement an Auto-Hektor 1:12,7/60mm lens (34mm in 35mm terms) — all packed in a Leica-designed compact body.
It is reported to have a €279 (approx. Php15K) price tag once it becomes official.
