The camera outfit a well dressed photographer wore in the early 1930's
Leica Standard 1932-33
The Leica camera was introduced in 1925, but a truly practical consumer model did not appear until the Leica Standard of 1932. The Standard introduced interchangeable lenses, used 35mm cine film that you could roll yourself onto self contained film canisters, and had shutter speeds from 1/20 - 1/500 sec. Most photography was done in black and white. The first 35mm Kodachrome slide film would not appear until 1936 with a speed rating of ASA10 (now referred to as ISO10).
