Saturday’s Camera – Leica IIIg

The Leica IIIg is the last Leica Screw Mount body – 1956.

Stripped of its skin.

I have the new leatherette for my IIIg but as of yet I haven’t found the quiet time needed to install it. The camera and the Leicavit received a complete CLA from Mr. Ye so it’s good to go. In this case I’m chasing time.

Comments are always welcomed as I’ve learned quite a bit from reader feedback. As always, thanks for stopping by and while you’re at it, feel free to visit my camera shop at (CC Design Studios hosted by Etsy). – Chris Whelan

  1. Thanks! Actually, I’ve been playing around with it like it is. It has a wonderful feel with your fingers against the metal. I’m going to recover it as close a match as I can to the original. I had to remove the original covering as it had cracked into a thousand pieces.
