Unveiled in 1954, Leica M3 is the very first Leica M-Camera that has the amazingly unique characteristics of the Leica M-System with its absolute mechanical and optical precision and a focus on the essential parameters needed for photography. This camera brings out the skills and visions of a photographer in his photos rather than with the use of special features. With the time span of 60 years, the unique characteristics that had been known in Leica M3 had been even pushed farther to the edge with technological innovations unparalleled with other cameras.
Leica Camera AG, Wetzlar had reached another two milestones to boast with pride and honor. Celebrating 60 years of Leica M rangefinder system in the industry and the 100 years of Leica photography that had given photographers the edge they are looking for.
Leica M Edition 60 is a camera so unique it is the first digital camera to have only the essential camera features concentration on shutter speed, aperture, focusing and ISO sensitivity. While ISO selector dial had replaced the camera display, the exposure files are saved as raw data in DNG format. Though it is still a digital camera, it must also be considered to be cared of as an analogue model with sensors.
