Cute Papercraft Leica M10 Birthday Gift by a Photographer’s Kids

Leica User Forum member lm_user is one lucky photographer. For his birthday recently, his kids gifted him with this beautiful Leica M10 prototype digital rangefinder — the only one known to exist.

Take just one look at this beautiful camera (and attached Leica Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH lens), and you’ll immediately notice the German craftsmanship and obsessive attention to detail. It features a 100% coverage optical viewfinder, a new white body, and new on/off button conveniently located near the thumb.

On a related note, photographer Matt Nicholson repackaged his papercraft Lieca M3 pinhole camera into a beautiful retail box kit that includes the template on cardboard and detailed instructions:

The kit was a limited run made for the department store Selfridges. You can find more photos of it here.
