We love Leica for its cameras’ classic look paired with the latest technology for creating meticulously detailed and sophisticated images. While the brand keeps on pushing the boundary in terms of technical specifications, occasionally it goes back to its roots and releases products with nostalgic setup that are equally difficult to resist, and the limited Leica M-A “Titan” set is just one of the best examples.
While fitting a Leica camera with a titanium exterior is nothing new, as the company first started doing it with Leica M6 TTL “Titanium” in 2001 and the latest Leica M-A “Titan” is the sixth camera receiving such treatment, it still works wonder with the combination of elegant and timeless look with exceptional resilience and durability. Key components of both the camera and the APO-Summicron-M 50 f/2 ASPH. lens included in the set are made from solid titanium, ensuring a perfect match for the stunning appearance.
Photography enthusiasts would probably be well familiar with the fact that the Leica M-A is a purely mechanical camera that doesn’t require any power or data connections. Its charm lies on the simplicity of its design, with no monitor, no exposure metre, and no battery. Shutter speed and aperture are directly marked on the camera and lens, just like how it was back in last century. With just 250 units available worldwide, the Leica M-A “Titan” set is dedicated to photographers who would like to return to photography in its purest form.
