The LEICA MP 35mm Digital camera in combination with anyone of the lenses in the SUMMARIT-M line. Nowadays, the monitor screen on a camera is the most popular way of looking at the world around us. Often unnoticed by users, this can result in alienation from the subject, as it is the artificial image of the subject that they look at, not the subject itself. Things are very different with the Leica-MP. The act of taking a photograph becomes the vivid and direct experience it originally was, making rangefinder photography a new, exciting and sensual experience in our world of digital imagery. Both optically and technically, the Leica MP Camera has been reduced to what is absolutely essential.
As a purely mechanical alternative to the Leica Analog Cameras from M7 series, which with its electronically controlled shutter and aperture priority mode offers greater convenience and more features, the LEICA M.P. is intuitive to operate and leaves all decisions and settings to the photographer. It is the very essence of precision mechanics, and its development and production are the result of nearly 75 years of experience in manufacturing mechanical rangefinder cameras. This masterpiece opens up a world of memorable experiences from the moment you pick it up. It offers more than just a short-term thrill - this is a camera for a lifetime.
Pared down to the absolute essentials, the Leica 35mm MP Camera is intuitive in operation but leaves all the crucial decisions and settings to the photographer. It is the quintessential mechanical range/viewfinder camera. It's an experience you will sense as soon as you hold this masterpiece in your hands. The Leica MP is ever reliable. It relies solely on the skill of the photographer, and can be operated without batteries. The robust body can withstand the harshest conditions. And its controls are all metal.
For exposure metering, the Camera Leica MP needs two 1.5 volt silver oxide button cells or a 3 volt type DL 1/3 N lithium battery. Lithium batteries are particularly suitable if the camera will often not be used for long periods or to carry as a spare, as they can be stored for years with almost no loss of capacity. The Leica 35mm MP is designed for longevity and to maintain its value. That is why we only use selected materials and employ sophisticated production methods. Prior to its launch, the Leica MP 0.72 proved its solidity in numerous laboratory and field tests. In icy cold conditions where no camera relying on batteries would be able to work. Over a number of shutter release cycles that hardly any other camera could withstand.
Because so many professionals love the red Leica logo, but discreetly mask it on their camera, we have done without this identification mark altogether on the LEICA 0.72 MP. We think it is enough for connoisseurs and owners to be able to identify a Leica by its classic appearance. The Leica lettering on the top plate is sufficient. The Leica MP Camera is available with two different surface designs : silver chrome finish or black lacquer. And if the black lacquer starts to reveal a glimpse of the plain brass at some of the corners and edges after long use, the photographer knows that he has shared plenty of experiences with his camera. The Digital Camera Leica MP has such an uncompromising design that you can always depend on it. The sturdy body stands up to any kind of use. All controls are made completely of metal. It relies on the photographer's ability, not on batteries. They are only needed for exposure metering. In fact, anyone who can estimate the shutter speed and aperture for themselves can do without electronic features altogether.
