Leica M-D - digital camera without screen
  • With some embarrasment I read that Leica actually releases a digital camera without screen. (See also: https://us.leica-camera.com/.

    Their "monochrome only" camera was already pretty retro, but ok, not having a Bayer patterned sensor does have some advantages should one really be interested in monochrome photography, only.

    But a digital camera without a screen? To "not spoil the suspense of what your pictures look like before you watch them back at home"? Seriously?

    That's the kind of over-the-top retro nonsense no reasonable person would buy. What's next? A Leica without shutter, were like with the 19th-century camera you temporarily remove a lens cap manually to time exposure?

    I would rather like to see Leica contributing to the future of photography then to reliving its past...
