The mirrorless species is in fierce competition with the mirror species and more and more smart-phone functions are incorporated into the camera body.

Leica has implemented only the option of the compressed files to reduce the size of the image file and enhance the speed of operation when selecting continuous shooting operation.

In case you are looking for a user guide for a Leica camera – new or old – you might want to check out the separate listings on Leica M manuals and Leica R manualsrespectively, in order to see whether the instruction booklet you are looking for is available as a pdf-download.

But there is no information about the type and quality of the software. If we add the the production of cine-lenses to the portfolio, it is difficult to escape the notion that this is a collage of companies that may have the potential to share fundamental product components and development insights, a potential that for now is still quite limited.


Most important specifications are the high dynamic range, the extremely high sensitivity and the high sequence of images. It was based on trust and stability and even culture and tradition.

The processed images are as good as what one gets with other more feature-laden programs. A photo has been taken with a mm lens and egwin 8 times from negative size. The relation between the photographer and reality has dramatically changed in the last twenty years, partly under the influence of the powerful post-processing programs.
