Leica Sofort Instant Camera

A lot of the resurgent appeal of Polaroid and other instant film cameras in the early aughts was the unpolished quality of images they produced. Expired film was loaded into camera bodies not by accident, but out of curiosity. What would it look like? How will the light leaks add to the image? It was a breath of fresh air during a period of time when digital cameras were in a megapixel arms race. Now that the instant-film trend has established itself, brands like Leica are getting into the market with their Sofort Instant Camera.

Images of these cameras leaked before an official announcement by the brand after someone posted images of a spread on the new body from the upcoming October edition of Leica Fotografie International magazine. According to what we know now, this instant film camera will come in three different colors, take a 62x64mm film that Leica and Fujifilm collaborated on (coming in both black & white and color), and feature an Auto-Hektor 1:12,7/60mm lens. Cameras will also come with an optical viewfinder, and feature four different modes for shooting; selfie, party, sport, and macro so you can capture great shots anywhere. When these hit the market this Fall, they are estimated to go for around $280. [H/T: Leica Rumors]
