Leica is really well known in the camera world and their cameras aren't cheap, but there's a magical reason why that's hard to explain...

I used to ridicule Leica until I actually shot with one and experienced the haptics and image quality. There was no way back for me. I have long forgotten the money I've paid for it.

I fail to see how anyone would consider buying this. I'm sure it is very nice and all, but you're looking at a 100% premium (at least) just for the brand. For less than half the price you can get better tech, image quality, and lenses from Canon, Nikon, or Sony. Over $250 dollars for a battery? The battery in my Tundra didn't cost that much.

So if a camera manufacture does not concetrate on being cutting edge in tech and still comands a high price, then it is definitely just meant for bragging rights. " camera is just a tool and not the art "

I believe Leica is after the best fotographies and the best user exeperience, not the newest gimmick.

Perspective: As a pro shooter I run 3 Hass H6D100c's 2 X1D50cII's and a 907X - insurance value £90k - tools for job. I looked seriously at Leica because they have better weather sealing - regardless of the cost of CS lenses for the Leica I chose Hass as it better fits my work - if my work was different I may well have spent the same on a different set of tools and they may well have had a Leica or a Phase One badge on them. As Pros we don't care what the badge on the front is - a friend of mine shoots architecture - something I don't do - and he spent £60k+ on one camera - the Phase One XT. The reason I posted is that most YT'rs seem to think the only people who buy these cameras are either dentists, architects or own a yacht or two. They exploit the cost over the performance in their content compelling amateur/enthusiasts unworthy if they cannot afford it. This is wrong. The machine does not take the picture the photographer does. Finally the perspective bit - the best picture I ever took was not only a mistake but was taken on a £50:00 Zenith 11 with a roll of 'holiday film' in Paris. 2 Cats yawning simultaneously.

Why would somebody buy a Leica? There are two types actually. #1 You love the craftsmanship of Leica cameras and the different shooting experience. OR #2 Because you can afford them which 98% of the rest of the world can‘t and you want to show it. That‘s all. There is absolutely nothing what a Leica camera can do that an entry level DSLR/DSLM can‘t or cannot do much better and faster. I would go further and say that a Leica M is the only Leica that is worth its price. It is an completely different experience to shoot a Rangefinder camera. You love it or hate it. But if you love it you can buy any Leica M from the M8 onwards (or even earlier if you love analog photography) and you‘ll have the same amount of fun and you‘ll get beautiful pictures (you don‘t have to care about MP counts). And the best thing about it is, used M8‘s/M9‘s are more affordable and you don‘t lose money because they keep their prices (unless you mess them up). If I can afford an Leica M again ... I wouldn‘t hesitate to buy one. And no, Fuji‘s X-Pro and X100 series is not similar to shoot with. They are beautiful, look similar, are fun and I still own an X-Pro 1 but they don‘t come close to the Leica M experience.

Leica SL is really nice, the SL lenses are large compare to old M and R manual focus lenses. The quality is there, and there are always used. Imagine if a SL 50 or 75 mm Noctlux, that will be a big prime lens.

I just love the modern high tech with old school _everything_ package about Leica cameras. She's a real beauty. And as a German, it kinda makes me a little proud that this is still a German company that still makes great stuff. Even though I could never afford to spend 5 grand on a camera let alone another 5 grand on the lens, I think I'd really go for her.

The real reason ppl buy Leica is because of Leica's history. It's something they think is really special (especially for customers from places like e.g. Dubai that literally didn't exist when Leica started).

Well-made ✅ Expensive ✅ Cool features ✅ Prioritise user experience ✅ Isn’t always as cutting edge ✅ Proprietary tech ✅ Hold value over time ✅ So where are all the trolls from Apple videos normally commenting “but I could get X for that money” 🤷🏼‍♂️

I’m not even a photographer but watching this made me want one. Maybe I’m a level 7 suggestible 😱 The photos have an almost muted and pastel quality which is really nice. Not overly vibrant or contrasted, just sort of pale yet colourful.

Start a new channel called "Linus Tech Tips Tutorials" (LTTT 🤣) and give guides and step by step walkthroughs of how to do various things. But not just a simple tutorial channel, but one that is more of a "behind the scenes" feel of LTT. I want detailed walkthroughs of how you plan videos, what equipment you use, how they interact and HOW you get them to interact, what stuff do you use for live streams? What are your video workflows and what software do you use to assist in the process? How can one can make their own workflows? Maybe make a "day and the life of" of each employee and show how and why they do what they do at LTT. I'm would watch the living crap out of that, because I know it would be filled with not only useful information for other youtubers who want to be a bit more professional, but also we get the "behind the scenes" personality and entertainment that each member of LTT beings. One of the best things about LTT is watching the antics of you guys just working together. The videos that almost feel a bit like Vlogs, but also are informative and interesting. Alright I'll stop rambling. But I think it would be a cool idea!
