The Story of Sean Flynn’s Leica M2

This is a story about a camera, a rather special camera. Every camera has a history, so they say. But it is not all that often that one has such a rich and documented history. One that was thought to be lost but has been found again. This is the story of Sean Flynn’s Leica M2.

The Leica Story – The Leica S – Luminous Landscape

The S-camera is beautifully designed and feels exceptionally good in your hands.  Like a lot of Leica cameras these days, Leica has not put any labels on the buttons.  This is an interesting move and speaking from experience it takes a bit of getting used to.  Once you get the feel of things though you don’t even notice it.

The Leica Story – The M-Series Camera – Luminous Landscape

On my recent trip to the Leica Headquarters in Wetzlar, Germany, I had two discussions on the M–series cameras.  My first discussion was with Stefan Daniel, the Global Director of the Photo Business Unit.  Stefan shared the interesting history of the M–series camera and how it was nearly discontinued.  I then spent some time with Jesko Von Oeynhausen, the Product Manager for the M system.

Leica CL Hands On Review – Luminous Landscape

This is the kind of camera that is small enough and easy enough to use that you will want to keep it with you all the time. If you are a Leica aficionado, then this camera will be a must-have for you. For others, this is a great entry-level Leica and you will surely be hooked on shooting with a Leica.

Leica X-U Hands-On Review – Underwater Camera That’s Built to Take A Beating – Luminous Landscape

I find it interesting that the X-U hasn’t been talked about a lot more. This camera is small, compact, built like a tank, and waterproof, with a depth factor underwater at 49 feet. I took it to Hawaii and did my best to challenge its specs.

Leica TL2 mirrorless camera officially announced | Leica Rumors

“Like the previous T and TL models, the TL2 is a primarily touchscreen-driven camera that uses an almost smartphone-like icon-based interface in the place of any menu lists. However, beyond the move to a 24MP sensor for this latest version, Leica has made small but important changes to just about every aspect of the camera.” (dpreview)

Leica made a fantastic camera in the Leica M10. It’s the most classic Leica I’ve seen in years, and it plays to all their strengths, while still maintaining all Leica look and feel that so many have come to love

Leica M10 Hands On Review

20001 Leica M10 silver CMYK

Put simply, it was fun.  It made me think.  It made me want to work for the shot.  It’s a different way of shooting than using a zoom lens and 12fps autofocus.  I found myself focusing, composing, and waiting; anticipating the shot.  It was almost a zen-like experience.  It didn’t hurt that I was getting some nice images.  The M10 is unobtrusive.  It doesn’t stand out in a crowd, instead, it allows you to become part of the crowd.

Leica M10 design process

So when developing the M10, Leica’s engineers found themselves having to meet two essentially opposing requirements: to further improve the camera’s electronics, and to simultaneously accommodate this enhanced, high-performance construction within a smaller body

A year with the Leica SL

A year with the Leica SL camera 61

Rather than covering old ground and describing the camera in detail, I’m going to discuss it’s position in the world of photography, after that I’ll look at using the SL in a number of different shooting environments.

No More Chimping: Leica Reveals the LCD-Free Leica M-D (Typ 262)

This camera is all about simplicity. The fifth M-Generation camera, it “embodies the entire range of technical advantages perfected over decades in the Leica rangefinder system,” while intentionally leaving out “all but the most essential technical features.”
