Leica announced the latest edition of the Leica SOFORT camera. Alongside the models in White and Mint, Leica is now offering the camera in matte black finish with the same popular features and functions of the existing models.
Created by the Leica Design Team, all versions of the Leica SOFORT share the same unmistakable looks. The special highlight of the black version is that the product name SOFORT is picked out in white lettering around the camera body.
In addition to the modes Automatic, Party & People, Sport & Action, Macro and creative programs for multiple and time exposures, the Leica SOFORT also offers a program for self-portraits with a self-timer with two different delays. To ensure best results every time, the camera automatically adapts parameters such as the exposure time and aperture to the program the user selects.
Flash triggering can either be left entirely to the automatic flash function of the camera, or users can turn it on or off, depending on the pictures they want to take. To make things easier when shooting self-portraits, the Leica SOFORT also features a rectangular mirror on the front.
The focusing distance of the Leica SOFORT can be set separately, regardless of the selected program mode. Depending on the choice of the close-up or long distance setting program mode, this means that the camera offers even more creative freedom when making pictures.
A comprehensive range of accessories is also available for the Leica SOFORT. A black-and-white film is now also available alongside the color film. Both film types are available in packs for ten exposures. The color film is also available in double packs for twenty pictures.
