Product Description

Details

As a purely mechanical camera, the Leica M-A (Typ 127) Rangefinder Black Chrome Camera is a precision instrument that has been so dramatically reduced to the essentials that it opens up entirely new creative horizons for photographers. It may have no monitor, no exposure meter and no battery, but what it does have is a mechanical quality that makes Leica's 100 years of experience instantly tangible. Photographers can read the shutter speed and aperture directly from the camera and lens and so concentrate fully on their subject. The acoustic signature of the shutter release of a Leica M-A is a delight that immediately reveals the precision-engineered excellence of its origin. The exterior of the Leica M-A is as timeless as the precision engineering hidden inside. For instance, the Leica red dot has been deliberately omitted to emphasise the classic restraint of its design as an ultimate expression of understatement. Viewed from the side, the M-A is also noticeably slimmer than its digital counterparts. With its exceptional sharpness, fine grain and distinctive tonal gradation, extremely broad exposure latitude and very good shadow detail, this black and white film soon became a firm favorite and a classic for art and reportage photography.
