French startup Pixii understands the modern photographer, especially in an era when smartphone and DSLR cameras share a space within our everyday carry. The Pixii Digital Rangefinder (with WiFi and Bluetooth support) is the next evolution in the handheld/DSLR union — where form meets function and accessible tech finds its true stride with smartphone integration.
With a 0.67x optical viewfinder, 12-bit sampling rate, LED-backlit frame lines, and a tasteful affinity for Leica M-mount lenses, the Pixii promises to fill the void that many other cameras leave in their wake. The rangefinder camera will also include a CMOS sensor, high dynamic range (60-90dB, for you pixel-peepers), an expandable ISO from 100-6400, and the ability to push photos directly to your phone for instantaneous review — which removes the need for internal memory and a rear LCD display. Look for more information like pricing on the Pixii over the next couple of weeks.
