With innovation comes change, and for the last few years the role of digital photography in society has been evolving, from Facebook to Instagram and more. You need more than just a camera; you need a device that knows how to connect with the Internet. The folks at Leica took that into account when developing the new Leica T-System. The fourth system to be designed by Leica, the T features AUDI design and everything one needs to stay up to speed: Wi-Fi, a rebuilt graphical user interface (GUI), Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom®, a professional digital workflow solution for Apple Mac® OS X and Microsoft Windows®. It even has its own app, the Leica T app, which allows users to instantly transport images to smartphones, tablets, and various social media platforms.

And what about the design? According to the press release, the collaboration with AUDI culminated in a Unibody that “was painstakingly made by hand and machined from a single, solid block of aluminum, with a sleek and tactile finish. The new body is a natural extension of the user’s hand and photographic vision allowing complete focus on crafting the perfect image.”

What’s more is that the body fits with a number of lenses, including according to the press release, “the Leica Vario-Elmar-T 18-56 mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH and the Leica Summicron-T 23 mm f/2 ASPH. The Leica Vario-Elmar is ideal for creative innovators who want true versatility in their photography allowing them to seamlessly shoot landscapes, portraits, and other limitless forms of creative outlets. The Leica Summicron-T 23 mmf/2 ASPH which equates to the traditional reportage focal

length of 35mm gives the user everything they need to capture all the decisive moments. The Leica M-Adapter T expands the lens selections to include all Leica M-Lenses produced after 1954.”

Additionally, the AUDI Design collaboration also brought about a number of bags and cases in yellow, orange-red, black and white with a new Easy-Click system that allows the user’s straps to connect to their bags and cases without a lot of fuss. So if you’re in the market for a new camera system, the Leica T-System will give you everything you need and more.
