Leica a Brief history
Leica is a company we have had the privilege of dealing with for over 40 years. Based in Solms, Leica was established in 1849 and the genius Oskar Barnack, developed the progression from 35mm negatives to larger print formats, to help launch photography as we know it today. The prototypes he made at the Leitz factory in Wetzlar were born out of a desire to carry cameras around the countryside, with a view to taking pictures, wherever he happened to be. The rest, as we say, is now history.
Leica and Harrison Cameras
We have gone from strength to strength in a partnership that has seen the launch of digital photography and HD Sport Optics, in an ever evolving market place which has gone from 'in-store' experiences to 'on-line' value. The latest addition to the Leica range is the Leica S Digital Single Lens Reflex Camera, with its wide range of lenses and medium format system, to give even better photographs by capturing every detail at the press of a button. Versatile and bursting with technology the S system falls firmly in the professional photography camp, being an incredible small camera with medium format capabilities, with excellent handling and ergonomic design
The Sport Optic range of products that Leica produce has been thoughtfully designed and superbly manufactured, to give outstanding performance in even the most demanding of conditions. The Leica Binoculars and Televid Spotting Scopes have been shown to perform exceptionally well, whether on the moors, bird watching or sailing round the Solent. To advertise the Leica family of products, we have arranged 'get to know' days at Chatsworth House and Camera Fairs in local hotels around Sheffield, which have proved very successful. The launch of the Leica D-Lux camera range was a very exciting event and we were not surprised that we sold thousands of the D-Lux 3 and 4 and continue to sell the latest Leica D-Lux Camera in large numbers to discerning customers.
