Leica has announced the new Leica M11 digital rangefinder camera. It features a new triple-resolution sensor capable of producing either 60-megapixel, 36-megapixel or 18-megapixel images in either DNG raw or JPG format. The new full-frame BSI CMOS sensor, Leica says, features a special IR+UV cut filter comprised of two extremely thin, cemented layers of glass and a new colour filter array for more natural colour reproduction.
The Leica M11 does look a lot like the Leica M10 – after all, they’re both Leica – but it does come with a couple of significant exterior changes. For a start, there’s no bottom plate. You can now directly access your battery and there’s also a new Type-C USB socket under there, too (an awfully inconvenient place if you ask me). The rear of the camera has also seen an overhaul and a 2.3 million pixel touchscreen LCD.
