What it is and what it isn't. This not a camera manual for the Leica M, nor is it a book that will teach you photography. Nevertheless, in Bertram Solcher's book you will learn a whole lot about your camera and how to use it, and about the art and craft of photography. This book contains a collection of illustrated essays that are meant to reveal the secrets of working with a rangefinder camera. To be more precise, with the best camera ever made. The book's ultimate goal is to ignite your passion for the kind of spontaneous, minimalist, and creative photography we admire in the works of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Joel Meyerowitz, and other great Leica photographers. All Leica M model cameras, both analog and digital, use rangefinder technology. Because of its design, working with a Leica M requires a more methodical style of photography where the photographer must slow down and exercise attention and purpose. Using these cameras is both challenging and rewarding. With a Leica M, you can mingle discretely within your environment to capture candid, exciting, insightful images. Bertram Solcher, a professional Leica M photographer for over 35 years, demonstrates how to use this unique camera in a practical and effective way. Solcher's enthusiasm, substantial experience, and technical expertise will help you learn the skills necessary for creating masterful photographs with any Leica M camera.

The Leica M system has been with us since 1954. It rapidly became, and has remained the favorite instrument of photographers, especially photojournalists, who, like Henri Cartier-Bresson, seek to ""catch life in the act"", to record ""the decisive moment"". In this Leica M Compendium Jonathan Eastland describes the whole Leica M system from his experience as a professional photographer. He explains how to use, enjoy and get the best out of the cameras and lenses, regardless of age. The latest lenses can be used on the earliest cameras, and vice-versa, and the Visoflex, although no longer made, is now much easier to use with the M6 and its TTL metering. Advice on planning and shooting a story with the Leica and extensive tables of technical data complete this ideal companion for the practical Leica M photographer, as well as for the Leica collector and enthusiast.
