2. Leica Develops Mirrorless Camera
The proliferation of compact system camera (CSC) players in the market finally motivated Leica to take the plunge and join the fray. This was revealed when Amateur Photographer interviewed Leica CEO Alfred Schopf and Chairman Dr. Andreas Kaufmann. They expressed that the company was looking forward to launching its own CSC product at Photokina in 2012. It was a milestone moment for Leica, as it marked the company’s foray into a relatively new segment of the camera market. With customer demand for CSCs growing rapidly, Leica was eager to capitalize on the opportunity and make its mark in the burgeoning market.
