LEICA M EDITION “LEICA 60” (Typ 240)
The essence of photography

Overview

THE RE-CREATION OF A LEGEND

THE ESSENTIAL FOUR

Reductionism as a celebration

A single moment, four functions: shutter speed, aperture, focusing and ISO sensitivity. The LEICA M Edition “LEICA 60” reflects radical concentration on the basic essentials required for photography. In the place of a monitor screen, you find only an ISO setting dial. The photographer can savour the instant of releasing the shutter – with no distractions from superfluous technical features.

STEEL WITH THE FEEL OF SILK

A refined visual presence, inspired by perfection

The exceptionally high quality finish is one of the most striking features of the LEICA M Edition “LEICA 60”. All visible metallic elements of the camera and lens are made of solid, elaborately machined and finished, stainless steel. The silky sheen of the LEICA M Edition “LEICA 60” makes it incomparably desirable.

CLASSICAL, VISIONARY

Not reinvented, reimagined

The anniversary of the birth of a legendary camera sees the appearance of the LEICA M Edition “LEICA 60”, a strictly limited special edition uniting the best of the past and future. The special edition was created by Audi Design: an homage to the essence of the art of photography, in perfect unison with the future of digital photography.

An homage to the art of photography

60 years in focus – at the photokina 2014, Leica celebrates the 60th anniversary of the birth of the legendary Leica rangefinder system with a strictly limited special edition – the LEICA M Edition “LEICA 60”. 1954 saw the launch of the M3, the first Leica M-Camera to feature the fundamental characteristics of the Leica M-System – the ultimate in optical and mechanical precision and an intense focus on the essential parameters required for photography. Today, 60 years later, it is the combination of technical innovation and the undeniable capabilities of a classic camera that make the LEICA M Edition “LEICA 60” so unique and desirable.

Four essentials

Reductionism as a celebration of photographic art. A moment, captured by four essential functions: shutter speed, aperture, focusing and ISO sensitivity. The LEICA M Edition “LEICA 60” reflects radical concentration on the basic essentials required for photography. In the place of a monitor screen, you find only an ISO setting dial. All exposures are saved exclusively as RAW data in DNG format. Working with the LEICA M Edition “LEICA 60” demands the same care and attention as when working with analogue models. The sensor and electronics represent the pinnacle of contemporary, cutting edge technology. It allows the photographer to indulge in complete concentration on the subject or scene and savour the instant of capturing a special moment. Without the distraction of superfluous technical features. This is what makes the art of photography so immortal.

Untouched by the march of time

A refined visual presence, inspired by perfection. The exceptionally high quality finish is one of the most striking features of the LEICA M Edition “LEICA 60”. All visible metallic elements of the camera and lens are made of solid, elaborately machined and finished, stainless steel – resilience and permanence in equal measure, in an object of enduring value. The silky sheen of theLEICA M Edition “LEICA 60” makes it incomparably desirable. Specially-embossed, genuine leather trim in anthracite adds the final touch to its overall presence.

More beautiful than the spirit of the age

Not reinvented, reimagined. The anniversary of the birth of a legendary camera sees the appearance of the LEICA M Edition “LEICA 60”, a strictly limited special edition uniting the best of the past and future. The special edition was created by Audi Design, and transforms a classic into a visionary concept. An homage to the essence of the art of photography and a return to its origins, in perfect unison with the future of digital photography. The exclusive set comprises a digital Leica M (Type 240) camera and a fast, Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. lens.

Boxed for the experience of un-boxing

Strictly limited to 600 examples worldwide, the cameras and lenses of the LEICA M Edition “LEICA 60” feature unique matching numbers between 001/600 and 600/600. The M-Camera bears the additional engravings ‘Leica 60’ and ‘Leica Camera Wetzlar’ to indicate the special significance of the edition. A premium quality camera protector in leather and steel protects what has long since become a legend.
