James Bond’s Camera

You know when a Leica is really cool when writer Ian Fleming specifies in the book GOLDFINGER, that James Bond (Sean Connery seen here) uses a Leica M3.

Actually, I like to think that Ian Fleming needed to make James Bond a cool character so he  gave Bond the M3.

He “…went to his suitcase and extracted an M3 Leica, an MC exposure meter, a K2 filter and a flash holder.”  Goldfinger, 1959 Signet Books, Chapter 4, page 29.

You can read more about it in James Bond Lifestyle  website where you can find more info on James Bond accessories and gadgets.
