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.

    I owned the actual lego camera when i was a kid. It was a simple pc connected web cam but came bundled with lego branded stop motion video software so you could make your own animations. Way ahead of its time.

      LEGO x Leica, either brand are known for values and I’m frankly surprised that the price isn’t more.

      Yeah, you can probably get all of the pieces to build these from the Lego pick-a-brick store for less than $20.
