Leica 35mm M7 0.72 Film Camera, Silver or Black Product Info

Leica M-7 35mm Film Camera is the fascination of classic M photography. Classics are works that are immune to the passing whims of the present. They are never rewritten, but re-interpreted on the basis of a changed world. The analog camera from Leica M7 Series is such a classic. Silver halide photography with a M-7 Film camera by Leica has a special appeal: the understandable process of exposing the film and the chemical processing of the same piece of material create an emotional relationship with the subject and the camera. The concentration when taking the photograph, the keen anticipation of the literally tangible images and the excellent results are all arguments in favour of analog Leica M cameras.

As an alternative to the familiar manual method of exposure adjustment - which, of course, can still be used - this Leica Film Camera offers a convenient, continuously variable, aperture priority mode with an exposure lock via the shutter release. This allows you to focus easily, compose quickly and thus devote your full attention to taking the photograph. With its range of intelligent features, the M7 analog camera by Leica gives you many options for picture composition. TTL flash exposure measurement takes the risk out of flash photography. Creative latitude is offered by synchronisation times down to 1/1000 s and flash synchronisation at the second shutter curtain. Viewfinder displays facilitate photography with long exposure times.

Ergonomically located right next to the shutter release button, the ON/OFF button activates the electronics of the Leica M-7 and also disables the shutter release when the camera is switched off. There is now a choice of either manual or automatic film speed setting (DX coding), eliminating the risk of annoying exposure errors due to wrong ISO settings. The stepless aperture priority mode ensures reliable and precise exposure. And a system that is unique for rangefinder cameras gives a clearly legible display of all the information in the viewfinder of the Leica M7 Film Camera - even in critical side light.

Specifications for LeicaM7 0.72 Silver or Black 35mm Digital Camera:

Camera: LEICA M7
Camera type: Compact 35mm rangefinder system camera with electronically controlled shutter and two mechanically controlled shutter speeds.
Lenses: Leica M bayonet mount. Lens system Leica M lenses from 21-135 mm.
Viewfinder: Viewfinder principle Large, bright line frame viewfinder with automatic parallax compensation. Viewfinder optical system with reduced stray light sensitivity and optimum visibility of all bright line frames. Eyepiece Calibrated to -0.5 dpt. Correction lenses from -3 to +3 diopter available. Bright line frames activated in pairs: for 28 and 90 mm, 35 and 135 mm or 50 and 75 mm. Automatically displayed when the lens is mounted. The preview selector can be used to display each of the pairs of frames. Alternative bright line frame configurations are available as part of the Leica a la carte range. Parallax compensation The horizontal and vertical difference between the viewfinder and the lens is automatically compensated in line with the current distance setting, i.e. the bright line frame in the viewfinder automatically covers the section of the subject that will be captured by the lens. Correlation between viewfinder and film images At the shortest possible distance setting for each focal length, the bright line frame size corresponds to an image size of approx. 23 x 35 mm. When set to infinity, depending on the focal length between 9% (28mm) and 23% (135 mm) more is captured by the film than is shown in the corresponding bright line frame. Magnification 0.72x (for all lenses). Alternative viewfinder magnifications of 0.85x and 0.58x are available as part of the Leica a la carte range.Wide-base rangefinder Split and superposed-image ranger finder displayed as a bright field in the centre of the viewfinder image. Effective measuring basis 49.9 mm (mechanical measuring basis 69.25 mm x viewfinder magnification 0.72x). For the alternative viewfinder magnifications of 0.85x and 0.58x available as part of the Leica a la carte range, it is 58.9 mm (mechanical measuring basis 69.25 mm x viewfinder magnification 0.85x) and 40.2 mm (mechanical mea-suring basis 69.25 mm x viewfinder magnification 0.58x) respectively.
Exposure metering: Exposure metering through the lens (TTL), selectively with working aperture. Metering principle The light reflected by a metering spot in the center of the first shutter curtain. The metering spot has a diameter of 12 mm and thus corresponds to approx. 13% of the full film format or approx. 2/3 of the short side of the applicable bright line frame in the viewfinder. Metering range (for ISO 100/21) From 0.03 to 125000 cd/m2 at room temperature, normal humidity and f/1.0. For ISO 100/21 this corresponds to EV-2 to 20 or f/1 and 4s to f/32 and 1/1000s. Flashing of the left-hand triangular LED in the viewfinder indicates that the brightness reflected is below the metering range. Metering cell Silicon photodiode with focusing lens to the top left behind the bayonet.
Exposure control: Choice of automatic control of shutter speed - with corresponding digital display - with manual aperture selection (automatic mode) or manual shutter speed and aperture setting with adjustment using LED light balance.
Film speed range (at lower edge): Choice of automatic setting from ISO 25/15° to ISO 5000/38° for DX coded films or manual setting from ISO 6/9° to ISO 6400/39°. Setting an additional exposure compensation (±/ 2EV) allows speeds of ISO 1.5/3° to ISO 25000/45° to be used.
Viewfinder displays: LED symbol for flash status, four-digit, seven segment LED digital display with points above and below (display brightness adapted to outside brightness) for: Film speed information, exposure correction warnings, automatically set shutter speed in automatic mode, indication of use of stored exposure setting, indication of brightness readings above or below the metering range in automatic mode and progress of shutter speeds slower than 2s. LED light balance with two triangular LEDs and a central circular LED to adjust the exposure (for manual setting only). Underexposure of at least one stop, Underexposure of 1 ? 2 stop, Correct exposure, Overexposure of 1 ? 2 stop, Overexposure of at least one stop. Triangular LEDs give the required direction to rotate the aperture dial and the shutter speed dial to adjust the exposure. The LEDs flash to warn that the brightness reading is above or below the metering range.
Flash unit connection: Using accessory hotshoe with center contacts or standard flash connector socket.
Flash synchronisation speed: 1/50s; slower shutter speeds can be used (with manual setting only). Automatic setting in AUTO mode; faster shutter speeds (1/250s, 1/500s, 1/1000s) available with manual setting
Synchronisation time: Optionally with 1st or 2nd shutter curtain (with appropriate flash unit and SCA-3502 adapter)
Exposure metering / metering characteristics: With SCA-3501/3502 adapter or SCA-3000 standard flash unit, e.g. LEICA SF 20 / SF 24D) TTL control with center-weighted integral metering.
Flash exposure compensation: +- 3 1 ⁄ 3 EV in 1 ⁄ 3 EV increments on SCA-3501/3502 adapter. On LEICA SF 20 / SF 24D, +/- 3EV in 1/3 EV increments or from 0 to -3 EV in 1EV increments with computer control.
Shutter: Rubberized cloth focal plane shutter with horizontal movement; extremely quiet. Electronically controlled with two mechanically controlled shutter speeds, 1/60 s and 1/125 s.
Shutter speeds: In automatic mode (AUTO) continuous from 32s to 1/1000s. With manual setting 4s to 1/1000s in whole increments. B for very long exposures of any duration, (1/50s) for flash synchronisation.
Shutter release: Three stage: Power up - Exposure value storage (in automatic mode) - Release. Standard thread for cable release integrated.
