Leica and Magnum - Focus on the Future

Leica and Magnum - Focus on the Future Magnum Photos International, Inc. and Leica Camera AG have begun a technological and photographic collaboration that will build upon almost a century's worth of shared history between these two world-renowned photographic institutions. Building on their shared history Magnum and Leica agreed to collaborate on a series of projects that continue their longstanding dedication to independent documentary photography. Beginning in the spring of 2011, Leica will sponsor the creation of a series of independently produced multimedia essays that will highlight the personal journeys and insatiable curiosity of Magnum photographers. The stories will be published at the homepages of Magnum Photos, the LFI Magazine, and also at this homepage. In addition to supporting individual projects, Leica and Magnum will use the production of the new essays as an opportunity to learn from Magnum photographers' experiences in the field with the latest Leica equipment and thus develop the Leica portfolio according to the needs of photographers world-wide.

Leica M Review

The Leica M has been around for over 50 years, since its introduction in 1954 with the M3, but the formula has stayed pretty much the same. With much more technologically advanced cameras around, the Leica M9 seems quite low-tech in comparison. So it's no surprise that a lot of people ponder why the Leica M is still around today and why owners are so enthusiastic about owning and using the digital M8/M8.2 or M9.
