Hello Natalia & Hamad,


Welcome to the Forum. Both.




Is it posible to see some other photos of this camera without the case? Also, from various sides & top & bottom?


Best Regards,

Looks like a retro Leica or Zenith the Russian camera

Looks to be a Model A or B 'hockey stick' Leica body with a fixed 50mm f/3.5 Leitz Elmar lens but without more pictures it's hard to be certain.


Mods: would you very kindly relocate this thread to the Leica Collectors and Historica sub forum where it'll be seen by those with particular expertise please?

Hi, looks like genuine IA, early, four digit SN. Low profile wind button, smaller font on Elmar ring, 50mm. However technical status very questionable, missing screws on lens flange, rewind button seem to be bent. Leather case from model III.

More photos desirable.

Not in too good shape, but probably genuine. In that case worth putting in working order.

Me too think it's an original Leica I... not rare but in a version that neither is common (and not a typical Leica to fake) ; an item of great historical importance, which is very close to its 90th birthday...

; surely worths to be cleaned and lubricated, with care.

What about provenance? There could be an interesting story there.

      You Tube VideoHello everyone!
      I am back with another mod. 
      This time I converted my Leica CL into a full spectrum camera to use it for infrared photography.
      Here is a time-lapse video. I will soon post some photos from the camera.
      Hope you like it.

      If you've just got yourself a new M10 (or haven't been getting out enough of late!) the following might inspire:

      Hi All
      Could you please help in identifying this model? A google search has not been fruitful. This is the only image I have so far.

      Hi, liebe Leute, erst mal tief durchatmen ...
      Die SONY NEXen sind jetzt schon eine Weile auf dem Markt und mit der neuen Firmware stabil und ausgereift. Als Backup für die M9 bieten sie sich an, weil alle Objektive mit M Bajonett funktionieren, allerdings mit 1,5 facher Brennweite.
      Die NEX ist ein hübsches, kompaktes Maschinchen, von der Haptik ein wenig wie die ROLLEI 35. Es gibt zwei Modelle, die NEX-3 und die NEX-5. Letztere hat ein hochwertigeres Geäuse, und kann HD Videos, ansonsten keine Unterschiede, bis auf den Preis. Den NEX-3 Body habe ich ich für 300 EURO bei ebay gekauft, die 5er ist rund 100 EURO teurer.
      Die NEX ist leicht in Betrieb zu nehmen, und zu bedienen. Die Bildparameter habe ich im Creative Mode bei Kontrast auf +1, Farbsättigung +1 und Schärfe +2 eingestellt.
      Besorgte Leica Photographen fragen sich natürlich, was ihre Leica Objektive empfinden, wenn sie mit dem Body der NEX in Berührung kommen.
      Keine Sorge, da ist noch ein Adapter dazwischen,(von enjoyyourcamera für ca. 70 EURO bei mir),
      beruhigt polygamer, und empfiehlt die NEX.
