New Cameras with Style: Leica's Monochrome + Color Striped La Sardina

One of our favorite things about cameras is, once you think you've found all the coolest ones to round up, a new batch of fun and interesting cameras surface again. These are the two we've been lusting over most recently.

Black & White
Leica M Monochrome: Serious photographers who are able or willing to drop $8K will be interested to learn (or might already know) that there's a new member of the Leica family that only shoots in black and white.

The M Monochrome has no color filter in front of the sensor and is therefore able to capture more light. It's the world's first full-frame digital monochrome camera that shoots 35mm black and white photography. It's a beauty and we can't wait to see what kind of pictures this camera can take.

La Sardina — St. Tropez Fontanette: There's nothing about bright colors and stripes that we don't love. Lomography's La Sardina Beach Editions are just that - gorgeous cameras wrapped in colorful deck chair fabrics so that each camera is unique. The La Sardina has an 89° field of view wide-angle lens and a rewind dial and MX switch so that taking multiple exposures is easy. If you need a camera with a stronger flash, the Capri Grotta Azzura edition comes with Lomography's most powerful flash — Fritz the Blitz. There are 3 distance settings and different color filters. All cameras use 35 mm film.
