Unless you are a shutterbug who have been watching the camera hardware scene closely, you wouldn’t have known Leica, maker of high-end cameras, has an instant camera line called SOFORT. If you don’t already know that, now you know and now, you also know that it has a new black matter finish version too. Announced recently, the Leica SOFORT Black comes hot after the release of the super quiet Leica M10-P. Noteworthy design features include a contrasting ‘SOFORT’ branding across the black leatherette and a matte black finish around the back.
Beyond that, it is the SOFORT you may have already known and this means it includes features like 60 mm f12.7 lens, 3 focus steps (macro, close and far range), 1/8-1/400 sec. shutter speed, optical real image viewfinder, ISO 800 sensitivity, self-timer (2/10 sec.), built electronic flash, and a host of pre-set shooting modes, including automatic, selfie, people & party, action & sport, bulb, macro, self-timer, and double exposure. Leica SOFORT Instant Camera comes with a 740 mAh lithium-ion battery good for 100 shots per charge.
Leica SOFORT Instant Camera in Black is now available with an asking price of $299.
