Another Leica IIIf camera project on Lego Ideas needs your support
By LR admin | Published: December 30, 2021
I have already covered plenty of Lego leica camera projects in the past (at one point I even developed my own Lego Leica camera – see the picture here).
There is a new Leica IIIf camera on Lego Ideas that needs your support in order to materialize in the future and become a real product we can all buy (I am not connected/related to any of the Leica Lego projects). Please register for Lego Ideas (you can do so with your social media accounts) and support this project by clicking the “Support” button – that is all!
Leica IIIf is an iconic rangefinder camera introduced in 1950. It’s the Leica camera I happened to own, so I decided to recreate it with digital LEGO pieces, along with a 50 mm f/2 lens, a 35 mm finder, a body cap and a lens cap.
This product proposal features a total of 586 elements, whereof 125 unique elements, 6 decorated elements, and 2 weight bricks built into the camera. The accessories are easily attachable and detachable. The dials can rotate 360 degrees and the shutter-release button is tactile.
The display stand is the same one featured in my Ur-Leica product proposal. It allows you to display the camera on a red carpet finish, alternatively on a tan wooden finish. The layer of tiles securely rests on the stand and can be flipped around to show the different finishes.
“Project Red Dot” – a project about getting a LEGO Leica product proposal to the IDEAS review – is now continuing with this Leica IIIf replica. Thank you for being a part of this journey!
