Jason Momoa Shows Off His Impressive Collection Of Leica Cameras

Jason Momoa has a few self-confessed addictions, he loves his Harley Davidsons, electric and bass guitars for example. Unsurprisingly, the photographer’s son has a keen interest in cameras too and took to Instagram recently to show off his impressive collection of vintage and model Leica rangefinders.

The iconic German camera maker is famous for the collectibility of its models; early or rare cameras and accessories can fetch extremely high prices. For instance, one anonymous buyer bought a rare 1923 Leica camera for $2.96 million at an auction in Vienna in 2018, making it the most expensive camera ever sold.

Momoa seems to be a fan of the vintage stuff, lovingly cradling a 1958 M2 model and a classic 73mm lens from 1930. His passion for the cameras has been noticed by the company, which is apparently set to work on a special project together with the Aquaman actor. Leica has worked with celebrity fans before, in 2015 they released the special edition Leica M-P ‘Correspondent’ camera which was designed by Lenny Kravitz (who is, coincidentally, Momoa’s wife’s ex) and was specially made to look “pre-worn.”

The company certainly seems to make the most of their hipster-vintage reputation which, together with the highest quality engineering and cutting-edge technology, means that their cameras and lenses are sure to remain highly desirable for generations to come.
