Photojournalist discusses 100 years of Leica

New, 5 comments

Leica is known for its wonderful lenses and its beautiful cameras that have hardly changed over the years. The company's a legend in the photography world, and this year marks its 100th anniversary. Back in 1914, the German company produced one of the very first 35mm still film cameras in existence. The BBC invited accomplished photojournalist — and longtime Leica shooter — Tom Stoddart to narrate a brief history of the camera maker and speak to just what draws so many to the small cameras. You can catch the full video over at the BBC.
