Leica launches limited edition MP cameras to commemorate Taiwan’s centenary establishment

Leica

To commemorate Taiwan's centenary establishment (from 1912), Leica has launched the limited edition Leica MP cameras in the country, and apparently, only 100 units.

The Leica MP film camera (body alone) is priced at NT$360,000 (or US$12,185), and every limited edition unit will be engraved with the serial number, which could be regarded as a value of a collection of traditional film cameras, and is available for pre-order.

Comes in Leica's original wood-made box, the camera features a copper and zinc-alloy body, while the the upper and lower lids are military grey, which resembles the Leica M2 Grey film camera that was launched in 1960. The Leica MP also uses "Vulcanite" leather that was on the Leica M8.2. Another special feature is the engravings of "MP100 – XXX" on the top camera shoe, the chinse words "Exciting Hundred 1912 – 2011", and Taiwan's national flower, the plum blossom. Such a limited edition Leica MP camera would surely appeal to collectors.

Gracing the launch event include Taiwanese model and actress, Tiffany Hsu.
