Leica's latest camera is a true work of art. Wrapped in carbon fiber, the CL Carbon Edition is sure to become a collectible. In fact, there are only 50 being made and they are exclusively available in Japan. The textured body is a stylish touch that gives a new hint of personality to the minimalist design.

Beyond the cool design feature, the CL Carbon Edition retains all the good stuff a photographer expects from Leica. The 24.2-megapixel camera shoots 4K video and uses an APS-C sensor. The mirrorless camera was released on September 12, 2018 for 390,000 yen (about $3,500) and will surely be snatched up quickly.

The announcement of the CL Carbon Edition comes just after the release of Leica's new M10-P, which the firm says is their quietest ever. It also features a touchscreen and other improvements that make it a new “must have” for street photographers.

Overall it's been a big month for photography and mirrorless cameras. Both Nikon and Canon have entered the market for the first time, looking to make a dent in Sony‘s hold on the full-frame, mirrorless camera market. As the technology advances and more competitors enter the field, it can only mean positive things for photographers and their creative options.
