Following a recent trend of modern yet retro technology, the photography manufacturer Leica has unveiled its plans to release its first instant camera. The Leica SOFORT has a 60mm f/12.7 lens, a front facing rectangular mirror for self-portraits, and a shutter speed ranging from 1/8 to 1/400. While the camera sports a variety of settings for those who want dexterous control of their instant pictures, five different automatic modes let the camera adjust its own aperture and exposures. As instant photography cameras are providing users with more contemporary tech, the Leica SOFORT doesn’t offer much more. The only thing that might justify its$299 pricetag is that is it super cute. The camera can also print on full-color film or in monochromatic.
