100 Years of Leica

Share:

One hundred years ago in Wetzlar, Oskar Barnack laid down the foundation stone for Leica. To celebrate this jubilee we have produced a special edition 100 years of Leica, where you can learn everything of relevance about the Leica brand.

This special edition includes:

Chapter 1: the brand core. Tradition, transformation, innovation: What is behind Leica legend, how does Leica define itself today – and what does it mean for photographers?

Chapter 2: how the Leica came into being – Oskar Barnack's epochal invention. Ready to shoot 100 years ago, the camera that rang in a new era of imaging culture in 1925: Barnack's ‘small film camera’

Chapter 3: from the life of the Barnack family. An attic-treasure: previously unknown photos from the estate of Oskar Barnack's granddaughter.

Chapter 4: optical excellence: From Elmar to Apo-Summicron. How the art of building Leica lenses developed since the days of Max Berek – the 50 mm lens throughout the years.

Chapter 5: the Leica M-System. The almost timeless Leica rangefinder: The M Leica has fascinated lovers of photography since 1954 – the epitome of the precision camera, whether digital or film.

Chapter 6: the Leica R-System. An intermezzo: the 35 mm SLR. The R-System once secured Leica's survival – but lacked the essential features to secure its own.

Chapter 7: the Leica S-System. The S-System: “Let's take the risk …” How Leica regained the trust of professional photographers – with an extraordinary digital medium format system.
