The all mechanical Leica M-A (Type 127) is an ultra pure camera offered by the most legendary photography company that supplied photography’s most legendary photographers. (Daresay, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Rene Burri, Robert Capa, Elliot Erwitt, et al.)

Where digital products upgrade at a frustrating rate the M-A (Type 127) is constant like a buddhist monk. There is no cable, no screen, no electrical circuit, no battery – it’s operated by gears and springs – and when the hyped digital cameras of today hit the garbage can tomorrow this little Leica M-A will just be breaking in and revealing it’s beautiful brass character.

You, with the M-A (Type 127), on the other hand, won’t be glued to another screen reading specs about another, and another’s, camera screen that might solve your photography problem. Instead, with the M-A Type (127) you’ll know all you need to know – how to very quickly set the aperture, speed, and manual focus – and be invested in what really matters – creating your body of work. That is photography.

The Leica M-A (Type 127) embodies your grand daddies wise advise “if you buy quality, you only cry once.”
