Leica 72

Share:

With the Leica 72, Leitz delivered yet another very small production run – this time consisting of even fewer models than that of the Leica IIId. Reportedly just 200 models of the Leica 72 were manufactured in the time from 1957 to 1963.

Based on the construction of the Leica IIId, the new Leica 72 was a half-frame (18 x 24 millimetre) format camera – meaning that 72 exposures could be taken with one 36-exposure roll of film.

The Leica 72 was predominantly manufactured in the company's Canadian facilities in Midland/Ontario, established in 1952 by Max Berek's successor Walter Mandler, who was the creator of more than 45 Leica lenses.
