TIPA WORLD AWARDS 2021

BEST DESIGN

Leica T (typ 701)

With a body machined from a single solid block of aluminium that is said to be hand-polished for 45 minutes, and a design done in coordination with Audi Design, the Leica T is both pleasing to the eye and a pleasure to use. This CSC has an APS-C 16.5MP sensor (with no low-pass filter) and a 3.7-inch touchscreen LCD that allows for quick and easy image option selections and swipe control picture review. While there are currently four purpose built lenses for Leica CSC cameras, Leica M lenses can also be mounted via the company’s M-Adapter T. A tilt and swivel optional EVF can be mounted, and integrated GPS makes this an excellent travelling companion. The free Leica App T coordinates sharing or using smartphones and tablets for remote shooting and camera control.
