On November 3, Leica launched a replica of the 1984 M6 film camera October, priced at $5,295 (about 38,283 yuan). According to Leica’s latest news, the camera is now available offline and online.
Leica M6 film camera black lacquer replica version online is currently only available as a set, with prices ranging from RMB 102400 to RMB 146800.
The M6 camera is made of highly scratch-resistant lacquer, a solid brass top cover, and durable leather. In addition, the surface of the glass elements with anti-reflective coating prevents scattered light interference. The new generation camera also continues the design of the red Leitz logo from the original 1984 camera.
The Leica M6 is described as having a mechanical paraxial system with a 0.72x viewfinder magnification, handcrafted from more than 100 individual parts. Aperture and exposure parameters can be precisely set with the lens’ selective exposure metering, while the metering reference indication is displayed in the lower part of the viewfinder. Classic yellow spot focusing is ideal for fast and precise focusing, even in low-light situations.
The Leica M6’s paraxial focusing technology takes you beyond the picture to help you seize the shutter with precision. The imaging frame lines highlight the six focal lengths of the imaging range, which come in pairs of 28 and 90 mm, 35 and 135 mm, and 50 and 75 mm. When the lens is loaded, the corresponding focal length framing range automatically appears in the viewfinder as a frame line. In addition, all other frame lines can be displayed in the viewfinder using the frame line selector toggle. Before pressing the shutter, you can select the appropriate focal length for your subject and capture the image at the decisive moment.
