Leica M-A (Typ 127) Silver Chrome

Leica is the only manufacturer that is already for many producing professional analogue cameras. The Leica M-A (Typ 127) is a purely mechanical 35mm rangefinder camera. The M-A does not require batteries and relies only on the essential camera functions like ISO, aperture and shutter speed (up to 1/1000 sec). This makes that the Leica M-A can be used even under the most extreme conditions. The lack of an LCD screen makes the M-A even more compact than the digital M cameras.

The camera features a bright viewfinder with a magnification of 0,72x and it also features a hot shoe with centre contact which makes that the M-A can combine with different types of flash units. The Leica M-A can be combined with all M-mount lenses with a range of 16-135mm.

Form and function in perfect unity
The visible elements of the Leica M-A are as timeless as the precision-engineered principles employed inside it. The top deck and baseplates are discreet and unobtrusive finished in silver paint and the leather casing offers a superior grip. To emphasize the classic character, Leica has even gone so far as to completely omit the characteristic logo in the form of a red dot.

In 2014 not only the Leica M system celebrates its 60th anniversary, but also another icon, the Kodak Tri-X 400 film. The Tri-X 400 film has exceptional sharpness, extremely fine grain, and a distinctive tonal gradation. This is also the reason why Leica standard provides this film with each camera Leica M-A.

David Murray - 6/1/2017 A classic reborn, the M3 with more convenient frames inside the viewfinder. We now have 28/35/50/75/90/135 in pairs of 28/90, 35/135, 50/75. I bought the silver chrome version as it retains its appearance longer than the black. Of course the black will appeal to silly people who misguidedly think that a black camera makes them discreet. The inclusion of a roll of Kodak Tri-X in the package is Leica's nod to us that Leica users generally prefer mono.
No meter? Well it means no battery to run out. Most of us use mono and guess the exposure, as Roger Hicks says 'surprisingly easy after a while.' The latitude of great mono films like Kodak Tri-X and Ilford XP2 Chromogenic allows for one stop under and up to three stops overexposure and still get a printable negative. For those who prefer to use a handheld meter, the digital ones are quite small nowadays and slip in a shirt pocket.
