We all know that LEGO bricks are the best toy ever. They’re so versatile that you can even build all sorts of photography gear with them. And now, Leica has launched a pair of LEGO Leica M camera sets that you can assemble just like any other LEGO toy.
The LEGO version of Leica M comes in two varieties: Black/Gray and Brown/Gray. Both versions have all the bits and pieces as the real thing: a lens, buttons and dials, a viewfinder, a shutter, a rear display and camera strap mounts.
Both LEGO cameras are listed on the Leica Store Miami website. They retail for $45, which is certainly a more affordable Christmas gift than the actual Leica M. At the moment of writing this, both versions are out of stock, but you can pre-order them. Here are the links: Black/Gray, Brown/Gray.
I think this is a pretty cool Christmas gift for photographers. Maybe one day we’ll get to see a LEGO Hasselblad, too. And if you’re into some DIY solutions made of LEGO, check out this camera slider, this pinhole camera, and this wireless follow focus rig.
