A landmark camera for Leica, the M3 is a 35mm rangefinder camera that was introduced in 1954 and came with several notable features. Find out more about this Leica beauty in this installment of Lomopedia!
The camera that marked a new starting point for Leitz (now Leica Camera AG), the M3 was introduced in 1954 and noted for ushering several improvements to Leica cameras. Previous models only had screw-mounts, and the M3 came with a new bayonet lens mount called the Leica M mount (still used to this day). Aside from this, the M3 also had a combined viewfinder and rangefinder in a single bright window, similar to that of the Contax II.
According to Ken Rockwell, the M3 is the best that Leica has ever made (makes sense that it’s Leica’s best selling model of all time), and is considered by many as the world’s best camera ever.

By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
