Leica X1 BMW edition camera gets little for $900
Leica's X1 camera, first seen in a leak back in 2009, has just been refreshed with a special edition model. The camera maker teamed up with German luxury carmaker BMW to endow the special camera with a different color on the body and a BMW stamp on the top. No other functional changes were made to the shooter, however, although the price tag, at $3,500, is $900 dearer than the standard-issue and just-as-capable $2,600 X1.
As such, the two share the same 12-megapixel CMOS sensor and an f2.8, 24mm lens. The cameras get manual exposure settings, auto-focus and a built-in, pop-up flash. [via SlashGear]
