Leica’s New Camera Replaces The Rear Screen With Your iPhone

Leica had decided to overtake one of their most popular new digital cameras in analogy. And the iPhone plays a crucial role. The camera company today unveiled a new variant of the M10. It completely leaves the back LCD and replaces it with your smartphone through a new application, freeing it from digital distractions so you can easily take pictures.

The new M10-D features a 24 megapixel full-size sensor and a quieter shutter. You can access most exposure settings with the thumbwheels, but to see your shots, you need to turn off your iPhone.

Instead of using a reversing LCD with viewfinder, Leica has developed a new photo application. In the application, you can change the white balance, JPEG or DNG format, and other exposure settings. You can view photos and download them for editing and sharing. The Photos App by Leica also serves as a remote trigger.

Still, the idea of ​​making a digital camera look like a movie camera is likely to appeal to many photography enthusiasts. If you have a lot of money to throw a new toy camera, it could be for you. The price for the Leica M10-D is $ 7,995. The Photos app is available for free on Android and iOS.
