Leica History

A beautiful online history of the famous Leica Camera from inception to 2011 put together by Leica photographer and teacher Thorsten Overgaard of Denmark. Each month I browse our site statistics preparing a report for our executive. One of the pleasures of that task is tracing back random links to our site. This month such a chance trace took me back eventually to this charming post by Thorsten Overgaard. His Leica history currently covers three web pages beginning with Oskar Barnack and his earliest (pre Great War) experiments to create a miniature camera back in the days of large view and roll film cameras right up to this year when Leica Camera announced the M9-P, a variation on its very successful full frame digital M9 model. Visit Thorsten’s blog for many more interesting articles on photography and especially the Leica.
