Discover uncompromising passion for quality.

LEICA M10

Since the release of the Leica M3 at Photokina in 1954, every single M-System camera has represented the pinnacle of innovation for its day. Defined by what is essential for photography. Leica embodies this passion for quality, craftsmanship and its philosophy of photography to this day. More than 60 years of rangefinder expertise, 11 years of digital M-Camera development and invaluable feedback from dedicated M-Photographers have inspired Leica engineers to create the slimmest digital M of all time: the Leica M10.

A century of knowledge has come to life

Oskar Barnack Wall Selection For August

Visit Leica Store Bellevue to see the winning print by Harry Teasley!

Between 1913 and 1914 Oskar Barnack was the head of Development at the Ernst Leitz Optische Werk, a German manufacturer of microscopes and binoculars. During that time Oskar make a prototype camera (now known as the "UR Leica") that took photos using 35mm film. The camera was successful, but because of World War 1 it was not introduced to the public until 1925 when the "Leica" camera met with great success. This first Leica is recognized as the first commercially successful 35mm camera and its introduction changed the world of photography.

In the spirit of the father of 35mm photography, the "Oskar Barnack Wall" will showcase one photographic print per month taken by a Leica Photographer. You can enter your own works by sharing them to our Oskar Barnack Wall Flickr Pool.
