Leica to Launch a New Cloud Service for Photographers
A cloud for photographers
Another area of innovation which the company thinks about is the photos themselves, i.e. the files. “I’m sure you all here have memory cards, hard drives, online backups Dropbox type, and more. But for now it seems to us that all these services are not adapted to the very specific needs of photographers.” To say that Leica will launch cloud services, there is a step that Mr. Kaufmann does not cross : “One thing is for sure, we will not enter this field without a partner. We are a small business and this is not our core business. But we think about it and we’ll tell you more at Photokina.”
