  • Magnum will test Leica

    We already knew that Leica was quite discreet on the digital photography market, but according to Amateur Photographer, the photographers of the prestigieuse Magnum photo agency will soon be recruited to test some of the upcoming photo cameras from Leica. However, it is not clear yet whether this will cover the Digital SLR cameras (like…

  • Photographer porn

    Here is a Leica M6 indecently stripped.

  • Discontinued cameras at Leica and Nikon

    Surprisingly, the PMA fair has been the opportunity to announce not only new products, but also the death of some others.
