Tokyo Through The Lens of a Leica T

written by Hanie Hidayah June 15, 2015

 

During my trip to Japan last Autumn, I was given the opportunity to bring a Leica T unit around to take some of my travel snaps. I’ve always seen my friends use this sophisticated piece of machine before, but it was my first time taking photos with a Leica and the best part was that I got to bring it around the streets of Tokyo. Leica T is one of their consumer-based products, which also means you don’t need to be a professional photographer to be able to figure out how to use this camera. It takes a little getting used to (especially with the Solid Aluminum Alloy Unibody Design and button placements) but most of the time you will be using the 3.7″ 1.3M-dot TFT LCD touchscreen to navigate.

It has a Contrast-Based Autofocus System which made focusing easy for me on the streets but what I like most, being a social media addict is that it has a built-in Wi-Fi Connectivity and all you have to do is connect it to the Leica App T for iOS. In case if you need to take videos, this nifty piece of machinery take a Full HD 1920 x 1080p Video at 30 fps with its 16.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor. It also has a 16 GB Internal Memory (cause the photos were pretty huge in size) in case if your card is full for the day. The only downside is that the body is very, very fragile and since the price tag goes around $1,850.00 pocket deep, one tiny scratch would seriously make your heart stop for a bit. Yes, that actually happened.

Anyway, enjoy my photos of my trip in Tokyo taken with the Leica T camera below edited with VSCOcam app!
