The Leica M-A (Typ 127) is a film camera with a rangefinder that is completely mechanical. It has a big viewfinder with a magnification of 0.72x and automatic parallax correction. Photographers are able to open up totally new realms of creative possibility when they do not have to rely on a monitor, light meter, or batteries.

The M-A (Typ 127) is compatible with all M-bayonet lenses, with focal lengths ranging from 16 millimeters to 135 millimeters. Photographers may adjust the framing lines by pulling the frame selector lever to fit lenses with focal lengths ranging from 28mm to 90mm, 35mm to 135mm, and 50mm to 75mm.

Because the shutter speed and aperture can be read directly from the camera and lens, photographers are able to focus their attention entirely on the subject of their photograph.

The one-piece, full-metal body with a rear flap, the top deck, and the base plate in brass with a silver or black chrome finish, all of which combine to give both durability and an aesthetically pleasing, understated appearance.
