The red anodised finish of Leica\u2019s Typ 262 camera is a striking colour, which is only emphasised by the black and silver of the rest of the camera. If you were able to pick up Leica\u2019s APO-Summicron-M 50 mm f\/2 red anodised finish lens launched last December, then the Typ 262 will be a perfect match.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nEven without the red, the Typ 262 is a sturdy camera. The top and base plate are machined from solid aluminum and then anodized the red color. The finish is limited to only 100 pieces worldwide, so this will be a collector\u2019s item just out of sheer limited supply. Fortunately, the camera is loaded with features as well. One such feature is the Leica rangefinder system. It also features the full-frame CMOS sensor. While it may not have live view or video recording, the camera does have 24-megapixel resolution for better imaging quality and light sensitivity. The camera comes equipped with a Maestro processor to speed up image processing. It\u2019s a lean offering, but photographers will find plenty of use in this camera.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nLeica claims that their cameras are \u201cthe perfect tool for capturing the fascination of a moment discreetly, quietly and spontaneously.\u201d Red may not be the most discreet colour for a camera intended for that purpose, but you can\u2019t deny the reputation for quality that Leica has earned with their cameras.\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
