Best Leica Digital Camera
a camera that encodes an image digitally and store it for later reproduction
A digital camera (also digicam or camera for short) is a camera that takes video or still photographs, or both, digitally by recording images via an electronic image sensor.
Usually captures images with the help of a CCD chip. The image data received is then saved to special memory cards or other storage media. (SmartMedia, xD-Picture Card, Compact Flash, Memory Stick, SD Card, MMC Card)
A camera that records and stores digital images
Leica Camera AG, a German optics company, produces Leica cameras. The predecessor of the company, formerly Ernst Leitz GmbH, is now three companies: Leica Camera AG, Leica Geosystems AG, and Leica Microsystems AG, producing cameras, geosurvey equipment and microscopes, respectively.
A compound word derived from " (Lei)tz " and " (ca)mera ". Apparently they were originally going to use "LECA", but another camera company already used a similar name in France, so they inserted the 'i' to prevent any confustion.
Ain't that amazing: you sell one digital camera (Leica M8) and can buy 2 of the best film cameras ever made (Rolleiflex SL66 + Leica M3) and two great lenses (80mm Zeiss Planar + 50mm Zeiss Distagon) and a scanner and film and chemicals AND get all the fun you've got with film as well?! :))
This beauty arrived today and you can't imagine how happy I am. A dream came true and I hope I will still have this camera when I'm old and grumpy. It's the complete opposite of the SL66, so light, so quiet, so...sigh :)
Edit: Well, one day after the beauty arrived, I broke a bone in my knee. Guess new uploads won't be that quick :(

Folly. Best viewed in large size.
