If you’ve ever yearned for the authentic “shooting film” experience on a digital camera, you might have tried every trick in the book. Perhaps you’ve limited your shots to a mere 24 or 36, used a low-capacity SD card, or even opted to shoot exclusively in black-and-white to capture that nostalgic essence. 

But there’s one camera that has consistently stood out to me as the epitome of this hybrid experience—a camera that balances a digital workflow with the soul of an old film camera: the Leica M10-D. Now the rumor mills have been turning and it looks like the Leica M11-D will be coming – but we have now read that the launch is delayed yet again.
