The company’s third camera following the Monochrome and Rangefinder, the new Pixii Camera is a new M-mount camera outfitted with a 26 MP BSI-CMOS sensor with updated software, and the new 64-bit processor featuring a quad-core ARM Cortex-A55 architecture, dual-core OpenCL 2.0 GPU with 768 threads and up to 7GPixels/s, and dedicated NPU and VPU cores.

It is also the first color camera-taking true monochrome DNGs, backed by the power of the 64-bit chip that affords finer details and smoother transitions. The camera further rocks a connected interactive, rangefinder viewfinder, that allows for remote live view on your mobile device.
