Leica unveils the MA Titan film camera for a whopping $20,000 price


Leica has unveiled its new Leica M-Titan Set film camera. For those who want to cherish a bit of nostalgia in photography, you might want to rush now as there are only 250 units that will be sold worldwide.

Unlike other digital and DSLR cameras, this one is timeless because it is an analog camera.

This $20,000 camera from Leica doesn’t have megapixels, but it’s a great choice for photography enthusiasts and collectors.

Whenever we talk about photography, the first things that come to mind are advanced cameras from Sony, Nikon and other camera brands. Leica is an exception as it is about to release an unusual titanium camera.

According to Techcrunch, the Leica MA Titan camera features an APO-Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH lens in addition to its lightweight design. However, be aware that you won’t get there easily since it will cost you $20,000.

In the golden era, photographers liked to take pictures of their subjects with an analog camera. That being said, they have to change the film for each interval of the photoshoot.

As such, they can capture up to 36 frames before editing the movie. It’s nostalgic, especially for camera enthusiasts who have witnessed the evolution of these gadgets over the years.

Of course, since this is an analog type of camera, it might not appeal to some people. Generally, Leica targeted camera collectors for this part because people would prefer a high-end camera these days rather than sticking with one that produces poor quality photos.

Replica Leica Barnack

There was a time when Leica managed to sell a very vintage camera that was so rare to find. Someone bought the Leica Barnack camera this month for a staggering $15 million.

Luckily, you can potentially get it without paying $15 million. According to an earlier report from Digital Camera World, the Light Lends Lab is creating a replica prototype for the vintage Leica camera.

Apparently, Photo Rumors posted photos of the Barnack camera on Instagram. From the images, the bottom plate of the camera is similar to an Abrahamson-inspired speed winder.

In addition, the design is very visible, thanks to the magnesium composition of the body. It is even highlighted with brass and a classic lens attached to it.

Over the past few years, Light Lens Lab has revived several vintage cameras with their prototypes. It is interesting to know how the company came to this creation, knowing that people often opt for modern models.

In April, Tech Times reported that Nitecore was offering a set of camera batteries that could rival Sony’s. According to the article, they come with a built-in USB-C charging port. This means you can immediately connect it to your laptop port or multi-port wall port for hassle-free charging.
