Leica releases the C Type, the first in their new line up of compact digital cameras. What initially drew our attention was the unusually large sensor they were able to cram into this pocket sized package. The C Type boasts a 1/1.7″ CMOS’ sensor providing 12.1 megapixels of resolution, all weighing in under 200 grams. The outer casing along with accessories were designed in collaboration with Audi. Key features include a 7x: 28-200mm zoom, HD video, and integrated WI-Fi/NFC connect-ability, making it easy to link up with your smart phone, tablet, or computer. The pocket sized camera will be available in major retailers this October for $699.
