German camera manufacturer Leica has launched a new model the brand has dubbed the MD. It still stands as one of Lecia's entry-level cameras, and is aesthetically similar to the recent Type 262 model, but the MD is unique among the company's models as it shifts the focus back on traditional, old-school technology.
The MD has no LCD monitor screen, nor does it even have a menu system, replacing it with an enormous ISO dial. Apart from the adjustment essentials like shutter speed, aperture and distance values, it offers no further setting options. It doesn’t even record your photos as JPEGs, but rather as raw .DNG files.
The new MD is going to be a challenge for any amateur photographer, but for those that are avid practitioners of the art form, it offers an experience that puts the personal touch of technique back into each frame.
The MD will be available in Leica stores worldwide.
