Leica SOFORT Red

Leica Camera is excited to announce a bright new color option for the Leica Sofort. The new Leica Sofort Red takes the vibrantly unique instant film camera and amplifies its bold design with a lovely red color contrasting against its black leatherette. The Leica Sofort Red matches all the same technical capabilities as all previously released Sofort cameras.

In automatic mode, the Leica SOFORT uses the available light as long as possible without switching on the built-in flash. The gives images an authentic and natural look. In addition to Auto, Party, People, Sports, Action, Macro, and Creative programs for double and long exposure, the Leica SOFORT offers a self-portrait program and a self-timer with two different shutter speeds. For best results, the camera automatically adjusts various parameters such as shutter speed and aperture to the selected program. The triggering of the flash can be either automatic or intentionally activated or deactivated depending on the intention. For a lighter composition of self-portraits, the Leica INSTANT offers a rectangular mirror on the front. The focusing distance of the Leica SOFORT can be adjusted independently of the selected program mode. Depending on the standard or remote setting and the selected program, the camera offers additional creative freedom when taking photos.

The essentials:

  • Simple and fun to use while allowing visual creativity
  • Compact body with menu navigation and icons designed by Leica Camera
  • Dedicated accessories
  • Excitement of seeing an image develop / appear near-instantaneously
  • Satisfaction of holding and sharing a physical, tangible image
  • Leica Instant film packs available in both Color and Monochrom
  • Optical viewfinder for simple and easy composition
  • Several camera shooting modes such as ‘party’, ‘self-portrait’, ‘sport’ or ‘macro’ are available
