This is the Leica M Typ 801 Concept Camera

Leicarumors posted several images of the Leica M Typ 801 concept camera. I don’t know whether the next M camera will look like this, but according to the images, the Leica M Typ 801 has an interesting design. What do you guys think?

Here are the “desired” specs of the Leica M Typ 801 camera:

  • Leica M-Mount
  • Leica Open API system allows rapid user innovation
  • Water sealed milled aluminium or titanium body
  • 30% decrease in weight over previous M systems
  • 60MP CMOS sensor
  • Maestro II processor
  • 11 fps
  • ISO range 25 – 50,000
  • Contrast focus assist system
  • 4k (4096 x 2160) @ 24 fps video
  • Built-in Wi-Fi, GPS and Device Sync
  • Adaptive touchscreen
  • Hybrid analogue / digital knobs
  • Two SD memory cards slots
  • Shutter speed: 1/8000 s to 60 s

    The specs look great but I hope it’s not going to look like this – A lot of Leica’s appeal has to do with the way it looks. Leica is still benefiting from the success of the M3 some 60 years ago. It was a state of the art camera, quite possible the most advanced camera of it’s time but today Sony, Nikon and Canon cameras are a lot more advanced and feature rich cameras, still people stand in line to pay 4 times as much for a camera that’s 1/2 as good. I hope the company executives understand why that is.
