M-Mount PIXII rangefinder with M mount: bold move ...

Leica M-Mount cameras and lenses
Do you know, if the widest horiz. angle of view of the viewfinder is 46° or 65°? I think 65, which would be the angle of an 28mm on ff, or an 16mm in this apsc-camera...
I am sorry but I do not know and a quick look at the docs did not help me. I will poke around some more and see if I can find it. I am sure I have seen it in some of their data.

For what it’s worth, my old iPhone 6s had a 64 bit processor in it. Pretty sure my current iPhone 13 does too. They also both have cameras. But if PIXII really wants to claim they’re the first, who am I to argue! More power to their marketing department!

I have not found the answer. The image you see in the viewfinder is the image the camera captures. WYSISYG. OK?

I think their claim is the first camera with 64 bit processing not the first 64 bit cellphone with a sensor. The line blurs and I understand there is a cellphone out there which can mount Leica lenses. I think I still prefer the Pixii.

I just checked, Pixii claims to be the first 64 bit camera. They do not claim to be anything else nor able to place and receive phone calls. I believe this to be true.

The new processor being able to address more memory can also provide a live view of what the camera is doing. A reading of their flak sheet lists a bunch of stuff it has been enabled to do like faster image processing and lower battery drain. Always good.
 
It's an ARM processor.
Is it open source?
Brian, I do not know. I am really just at the consumer end of this. You can swing by the Pixii page on FB and ask Mattias Burling who is the moderator and would possibly know. He has close contact with Pixii and its head, Barth. He and a couple others are using the new SoC A2572 Pixii and seem happy with it. There is a short but not too tech blurb on YT. As I look at it the camera truly is a lot like a cell phone with a lens mount and range finder. And this may well be the direction cameras will take, branching away from mechanical just as did typewriters fade to be replaced my desktop computers. While cameras like Leica are marvelous mechanical devices they are also kind of like mechanical watches. Really nice, beautiful, elegant but if you want accurate time Casio can do it for $10. Cameras are not that extreme in difference because of the lens and focus but the cell phone aspect of photography could be fielded pretty cheap. Yes, the M9 will always be a great camera and I really love my old DSC S70 for color but the camera market is in flux.

Sorry to take so long answering, I just saw your post. Cheers.
