Description Details

The Leica M6 TTL is a 35mm rangefinder film camera designed for the legendary Leica M-mount system which features arguably the best glass in the world.

This black chrome TTL version (1998-2002) added TTL flash control which the previous M6 version (1984-1998) did not offer.  For TTL ambient light metering, the finder offers two shutter / aperture arrows and a round LED in the middle to mark accurate exposure.  In addition to the ambient light photocell, the Leica M6 TTL is equipped with a hot shoe and a second photocell for flash.  A synchronization socket is on the back of the body for using flash units with a cable.  Focus is verified through a bright rangefinder field in the center of the viewfinder window. This can be used for either coincidence (double-image, best in most situations) or split-image rangefinder focusing (best with buildings, straight lines).

The Leica M6 TTL's 0.85x viewfinder offers a high-contrast bright-line viewfinder that adjusts to the mounted lens and is coupled to the focusing mechanism to compensate for parallax (for lenses between 21 and 135mm).  The five frame lines for this 0.85x viewfinder are 90mm, 35 / 135mm, and 50 / 75mm.  When a lens is fitted that does not correspond to the lines, the M6 has a frame preselector to allow you to view the scene as if composing with one of the five frame line lengths.

Shutter speeds are adjusted with an "ergonomically perfect" dial atop the body, marking speeds of 1/1000 second to 1 second, bulb, and flash sync.  The M6 also features the quick-wind lever for faster film advancement during rapid sequences.

Leica M-mount cameras are some of the most solid film bodies ever created and are designed to use the legendary Leica M-mount lenses. The M6 is the perfect body for street, travel, and every day use.
