Leica M3 -- a personal history of the road more traveled

  1. The mounds sound quite interesting. In 1963 I was just starting my anthropology courses and was using a stereo camera to record our dig sites.
  2. In many ways, the Leica M’s were the first “modern” cameras with a user interface that still prevails today in the Leica M10. There were some weird things like the film loading but in general they worked just the way later cameras worked. The M design was a masterpiece even against the eventual strong contenders for better screwmount cameras from Canon and Nikon. Canon particularly had some pretty great screwmount cameras (like the P and the 7) but they just couldn’t compete against the M.
