Apple’s Sir Jonathan Ive To Design Limited-Edition Leica Camera

At Leica’s special event yesterday in Cologne, Germany, Leica company owner Andreas Kaufmann revealed that Apple’s senior vice president of industrial design, Sir Jonathan Ive, will be designing a limited edition version of the Leica M.

The special edition camera will be ultra-limited as only one unit of the camera will ever be produced.

However limited it is, it will still serve a purpose—the camera will be auctioned off with the proceeds donated to charity.

No other details about the camera were revealed, according to PetaPixel.

The standard Leica M sports a 24-megapixel full-frame CMOS image sensor, Leica Maestro image processor, a 3-inch LCD screen and a metal chassis.

Sir Jonathan Ive is responsible for designing many of Apple’s iconic products, such as the iPhone, iPad, iMac and MacBook Pro.
