LEICA IIIf "copper-plated"
Today we present you a very special piece.
Since for many Leica collectors and photographers the aesthetic aspect of a Leica always plays a role, and many see more than a mere tool in the camera, we have considered a small highlight for you.
Again and again there are classic Leica cameras that have been used a lot over the decades and which need repair. In individual cases, however, one stands as a user at a point where the camera is repaired either only under unreasonable means or has irreparable damage. But should one dispose such a camera simply?
We think that something like that should not happen to a Leica.
So we decided to breathe life into such a lost cause.
The basis of the Leica "copper-plated" presented here was a Leica IIIf with Elmar 3.5/5cm lens.
Camera and lens were handed over to a specialized company, which has copper-plated the Leica IIIf including attached lens by means of a galvanic process.
The result is a beautiful, 594 grams IIIf "copper-plated" which as a pure object not only brings out the technical aesthetics, but also the design of a classic Leica screw-mount camera with its smooth, copper-red surface!
