Bill Belier writes a regular column for the Photographic Canadiana. A treasure does not have to be a rare camera. The criteria being that it is a photographic article which YOU cherish and is part of YOUR collection. Just as interesting as the item’s technical data, is the story leading to its possession. Where did you find it? Was a trade involved? Was it a sleeper at a flea market?...was it a basket-case discard?...or was there some other element of discovery to make it interesting? If you have such an item, please contact Bill or Bob Lansdale, editor of Photographic Canadiana, via firstname.lastname@example.org or at a meeting.

|Leica Null Series|
The Leica is considered the first successful commercial camera using 35mm cine film. Its introduction in 1925 sparked the "minicamera" revolution and established standards still in use today. The null series was a very small production of cameras used to test the concept and mechanics before full scale production began. To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Leica in 2000, Leica Camera manufactured and offered for sale a small number of working replicas. Click the above image or title for more information.
