Back in February, Surface Magazine looked at how legendary Germany camera manufacturer Leica makes their cameras by going behind the scenes with the new Leica M10.

As you can see in the video below, Leica’s German headquarters looks like a cross between a museum of past Leica cameras and a futuristic laboratory. It’s incredible to see the attention to detail that Leica employs when calibrating their sensors and building cameras. While the look of their M cameras has remained essentially unchanged since the 1950s, clearly the technology employed in their construction has continually evolved.
