World Leica type camera
-Evolution and development - of small precision camera

In "Leica which built new field called "small precision camera"," prototype (later called "0 type") was made in about 1923 (Taisho 12), and "Leica I(A)" was released in 1925 (Taisho 14). "Leica" always pulled the world photograph industry as camera using 35 millimeters of films, and type machines that made a model of "Leica" were produced at the same time afterwards in all the countries of the world.

However, they are not only called simple imitation. We do not worship "Leica" with supreme existence, and thought, producer of all the countries of the world repeat interpretation and thoughts, and "what is small precision camera?" develops "what is thing bought at camera?", and it is on important page 1 of history of camera which was connected for the next camera development.

In Japan in particular, there are the times when the companies competed for "you catch up with Leica, and overtake" for password. As a result, Japanese camera maker is a chance to move forward to direction where is different from "Leica", and it was connected to development of single-lens reflex camera which Japan boasts of to the world, but influence of "Leica" appears and disappears behind popularity of "non-reflex" attracting attention in digital camera product or lens exchange type digital camera called "mirror reply" even now.

By this display, we introduce "Leica type camera" of all the countries of the world which made a model of "Leica" of the head family, and camera that only extremely only production was not performed, confirmed thing display rare cameras such as cameras remaining in several.
