With the announcement of the Leica T, Leica’s new entry-level (and we use the term “entry-level” in absolute loosest way imaginable) camera, Leica appears to be stepping away from their iconic past and towards Apple’s unibody Macbook Pro. Even their M models (particularly those designed by Apple design wiz Jonny Ive) now have a hint of “je ne sais Apple” about them.
This move to the 21st century is leaving a retro-vacuum in the camera world, one that Fujifilm seems intent on filling with a lineup of cameras that James Dean would find familiar. NCN has recently obtained what our source claims to be the next Fuji camera. Apart from the photo, we know very little about this rumored new Fuji, but it looks to be a classic twin lens reflex camera with clear Fuji markings.
Our sources tell us that the top of the camera will feature a square EVF protected by a folding hood and, in keeping with tradition, the image will be presented reversed.
NCN is not in the habit of posting sensational stories of dubious validity though–we leave that to website with fewer scruples. So if you see it on these pages, then you can rest assured that it is real!
