Limited Edition Leica M Edition 100 Set

One hundred is the magical number for life expectancy. It marks a definitive point in people’s lives. Same with companies. So when Leica turned 100 this year, they decided to celebrate with the limited edition Leica M 100 models. They’ve put together the digital Leica M (Leica M Monochrom) along with the Leica M-A rangefinder camera in one set. The body includes stainless steel for the first time ever. The set also includes three Leica Summilux-M lenses. Get them at Leica Stores and Boutiques.

Leica M Camera by Jony Ive: Apple Designer’s Shooter Is Auction-Ready

Chief Apple designer Jony Ive and industrial designer Marc Newson have conspired to concoct this beauty of an aluminum full-frame camera based on Leica’s M model. To be sold at a charity auction next month, the limited edition Leica features a 50mm f/2 lens and a “laser machined aluminum body and anodized aluminum outer shell.” Proceeds will go towards the fight against AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.

Leica M

Celebrities, like Brad Pitt, Scarlett Johanssen and Daniel Craig, love their Leicas. Now, they’re sure to grab the newest version, the Leica M ($6,950). It retains the stout and solid construction of the M9, but the new innards are even more enticing than the sweet arils of a plump pomegranate. Upgrades include a new 3-inch 920k-dot LCD and a dedicated button for recording 1080P video. Stills and video should excel with the new 24-megapixel, full-frame Max CMOS sensor.

Leica M Monochrom

As a wise philosopher once said, “If you’re thinking about my baby, it don’t matter if you’re black or white.” That has absolutely nothing to do with the Leica M Monochrom camera ($7,950), other than the fact that this dandy only does black and white photos–and man does it do ’em. Leica’s decision to emit any color-capture ability means the M records amazing levels of light detail. If you’re looking to make the next Manhattan, this would be the camera to do it with.

Leica D-Lux 5 Titanium Edition

Ok, so you may not know the difference between a lens and a shutter, but with the new D-Lux 5 from Leica, you’ll look like a professional photographer. Finished with a titanium anodized exterior, the camera has a matching case made from Italian cowhide. Talk about good things coming in small packages. The actual camera (that’s the device that actually takes the photos), functions just as the 10-megapixel D-Lux did and features 3.8x optical zoom, ISO settings of 80 to 12,800, RAW and JPEG support and 720p HD video recording capability.
