Maybe you can have the best of both worlds; top rated smart phone and a Leica Camera. The Leica i9 Concept is causing a stir in the digital world and it is one concept many people want to see come to fruition. Top rated Leica Cameras are very expensive and while the iPhone takes a nice photo, the thought of having it combined with a Leica is exciting. Let’s hope they can keep the quality up and price down!
Create a feature set that complements Leica’s high performance camera systems and takes full advantage of the iPhone4’s power and rich features.
- INDEPENDENT CAMERA BODY – doesn’t depend on the iPhone4 processor, making the i9 a true ready-to-shoot camera.
- COMPACT OPTICAL ZOOM – offers true optical zoom with a greater number of focal lengths in a compact size.
- LEICA RANGEFINDER – allows for faster uninterrupted shooting.
- CASE FORM FACTOR – makes the i9 ultra-compact and protects your iPhone4 in a rugged and stylish case.
- CAMERA BACK DOCK – loads your iPhone4 reminiscent to traditional 35mm film and takes full advantage of the iPhone4’s superior Retina Touch-Screen Display.
- INTERCHANGEABLE CAMERA BACK – ensures the i9 is compatible with future generation iPhones.
