Interview with Leica about future cameras


Fotosidan published their interview with Stefan Daniel from Leica about future cameras. Here are the two most interesting Q&A:

Do you also see room for a smaller mirrorless full-frame camera, for example with the dimensions of an M?

I do not want to claim that we have filled in every blank so far. We are always looking at alternative concepts, but I cannot say more about that for the time being. The recent rumours about a so-called CM however are totally unfounded.

Do you still see a future for compact cameras?

We see the market going in two directions. Everything in the entry-level segment has fallen victim to smartphone photography. However, high-quality compact cameras, especially those with a large image sensor, are very stable overall in the market. These include our D-Lux, V-Lux and the new C-Lux we will introduce tonight. Fortunately, we can say that we are not affected by the general decline.
