Digital photography is no longer about the number of megapixels your camera has, as they’ve all got more than you’ll ever need – most cameras will allow you to enlarge an image to the size of a wall if you wish. Now it’s all about what your camera looks like and what it says about you.
With no bulky lenses, the most useful cameras have always been the compact models, but, until now, these have lacked the style and grace of other versions.
Now there’s a new breed of compact digital camera which takes inspiration from vintage cameras such as the Olympus Trip 35 or early Leica models by using design elements such as embossed leather or plastic, matte silver accents, square edges instead of curves and retro typography.
These are compact digital cameras for design enthusiasts; everyday cameras that you’ll want to wear round your neck with pride, ready to snap away immediately.
