Leica M7 Beginner Set with Summicron-50mm f/2.0 M Lens
In this increasingly electronic age, the Leica M7 remains a purely mechanical camera, transforming the act of capturing compelling images into an exciting and sensual experience. First comes concentration, then anticipation and lastly joy over brilliant results.
As an alternative to the familiar manual exposure metering of other analog M-Cameras – which, of course, remains still an option with the M7 – the camera offers a convenient, continuously variable aperture priority exposure mode with AE lock that is activated by lightly depressing the shutter release.
The Leica M7 offers the choice of setting the ISO manually or by using the contactless automatic film-speed detection built into the camera body, effectively preventing incorrect exposure due to wrongly set ISO film speeds. As a further option, photographers may input exposure corrections of up to ±2 stops in the automatic exposure mode.
The Leica horizontal cloth focal plane shutter has been fundamentally revised for the M7 – it is now electronic! This shutter is extremely quiet, allowing you undisturbed access to the subject. What’s more, the two commonly used shutter speeds of 1/60 sec and 1/125 sec can even function without battery power. So even if your batteries fail you, this camera will not.
