Want to see what a 16,000-dollar camera looks like? Take a peek here.
Camera designs and builds vary from use to preference. The simpler ones consist of no more than a light-proof box, a tiny hole and film inside to capture images while some cameras are more complicated like this clockwork number from *Kwang Hung Hyun*. Their bells and whistles may vary but they ultimately lead to one goal – taking photographs.
As far as camera gear worship goes, camera manufacturer Leica has established a steady following amongst photographers with their line of high-quality cameras. Case in point, the fan favorite Leica M3. This series of photos may make some photo buffs cringe at the site of a stripped and cut up M3 while some may be more than astounded by what goes on beneath the leatherette, lens and metal body.
It’s amazing to see the engineering poured into the camera. The relationship of each piece is of vital importance to the whole of the camera. Once something goes amiss, everything else follows. Drooling aside, this stripped Leica M3 is up for grabs for €12,000, more or less $16,000 on eBay by the Leica Shop in Vienna. A pricey conversation starter, won’t you say?

Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.
There is nothing better than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier-Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.
While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
