Le­ica Ts Up

ProPhoto - - NEWS -

An up­dated ver­sion of Le­ica’s T ‘APS-C’ mirrorless cam­era is now avail­able. The new Le­ica TL fea­tures the same hewn-from-solid alu­minium bodyshell as the T, but there’s a choice of three fin­ishes in sil­ver, black or ti­ta­nium. This last ver­sion also fea­tures bev­elled edges on the top and bot­tom plates.

On the in­side there’s a big­ger 32 GB in­ter­nal mem­ory (ac­tu­ally twice the previous ca­pac­ity) and var­i­ous im­prove­ments to the aut­o­fo­cus­ing sys­tem es­pe­cially in the con­tin­u­ous mode. The new TL sup­ports SL Sys­tem lenses with op­ti­cal im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion and al­lows the use of Le­ica R Sys­tem lenses in com­bi­na­tion with the R Adapter L. What’s now known as the TL Sys­tem cur­rently com­prises six lenses – three primes and three zooms which span a fo­cal range of 17mm to 200mm (35mm for­mat equiv­a­lent). Ad­di­tion­ally, the SL Sys­tem lenses can be used on the Le­ica TL with­out an adapter. Un­changed from the T is the largely touch­screen-based op­er­a­tion – us­ing a large 9.4 cm fixed TFT LCD mon­i­tor panel – 16.5 megapix­els CMOS sen­sor, 5.0 fps con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing and pop-up flash. As be­fore, the TL doesn’t have a built-in EVF, but can be fit­ted with an op­tional unit.

In ad­di­tion to the in­ter­nal mem­ory, the TL has a sin­gle mem­ory card slot for the SD for­mat. WiFi func­tion­al­ity is im­proved via a new Le­ica TL app which is avail­able for An­droid as well as iOS de­vices and al­lows for re­mote con­trol of se­lected cam­era oper­a­tions, in­clud­ing se­lect­ing aper­tures and shut­ter speeds.

The Le­ica TL is priced at $2450 body only (in all fin­ishes) while spe­cial Nappa leather body pro­tec­tors (in black, red or stone grey) are avail­able at $170.
