Pretty great idea… USB cards that tear off a credit card sized base. Only thing is, who uses USB memory sticks anymore?

The Leica T

Read More

Leica has finally released what many consider to be a “mini” Leica M. Only it’s not an M at all. Instead, it’s an interchangeable lens APS-C camera. Just from the numbers, I don’t see a whole lot here that is special, but you can probably count on the great feel and great ergonomics that Leica is known for. To me, the biggest surprise here is the price – just under $2k. For a Leica, that’s cheap as hell.

If I had $900 laying around, I’d totally buy one of these things… Essentially, it’s an analog bluetooth speaker with a pretty good look.

Obviously, it’s new camera season… And Sony just dropped a bomb. How about a full frame mirrorless camera the size of a micro-4/3 kit that doesn’t cost $7000? Introducing the Sony a7 and a7R. I think The Camera Store did a good job on the review. Check it out:

Apple has, on some level, always wanted to be Leica. And Leica, of course, has suddenly wanted to become more of a fashion brand like Prada. So, it’s only natural that the two get together a build a special edition one-of-one camera to be auctioned off by Sotheby’s. I’m betting this hunk of shit will sell well north of $50k.
