The return of an icon of film photography

TEANECK, NJ, October 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Leica Camera AG, the company responsible for the first 35mm camera, and today the only manufacturer of new 35mm analog rangefinder cameras, continues its commitment to film photography with the release of the new Leica M6.

The return of the Leica M6 is part of the renaissance of analog photography, witnessed by professionals and enthusiasts alike. With the new edition of this legendary rangefinder camera, Leica now responds to the wishes of young audiences, in particular, who want to experience active participation in the photographic creation process. Today, the Leica M6 continues to offer exactly the right equipment to focus on the essentials when shooting.

The 2022 Leica M6 is based on a modern version of the Leica M rangefinder with 0.72x magnification. In addition, all its optical surfaces are now coated and therefore less sensitive to stray light. The later M6’s light meter now displays the correct exposure via a red dot in addition to the two arrow symbols originally used. In addition, it is equipped with a battery warning indicator. The top cover has been redesigned: whereas the previous model’s cover was die-cast zinc, it is now milled from solid brass and finished with an abrasion-resistant black lacquer.

Like the original from 1984, the new edition of the Leica M6 is also adorned with the red Leitz logo.

The Leica M6 remains true to itself and retains all other typical character traits such as the tilted film rewind crank. Recent achievements such as the optimized rangefinder, however, provide even more functionality. Handmade in Germanyit’s an extremely reliable companion for anyone who appreciates the enduring and contemplative nature of film photography.

The price of the Leica M6 is $5,295 and will be available in United States in Leica Stores, Leica Boutiques and Leica Online Shop departure November 3, 2022.
