The Leica IIIf is a fully mechanical camera, and was Leitz's (later Leica) first 35mm camera body for screw mount lenses (M39) with built-in flash synchonisation. Introduced in 1950, it succeeded the Leica IIId. Built-in flash synchronization was an advancement introduced to make flash photography practical, consideting that at the time there were several types of flash bulbs and each had a different firing delays which made the use of flash difficult.

The camera uses any lens in the Leica Screw Mount, and has a coupled rangefinder and a viewfinder without framelines designed for use with a 50mm lens.

The Leica IIIf cameras are known as either Black Dial (early version) or Red Dial (later version) depending on the color of the engraved numbers on the synchronization dial. Beginning with S/N 615,001 (end of 1952) an upgraded version was made with an improved shutter and flash sync mechanism, shutter is lighter and reduces vibration while increasing the flash sync speed, to mark the change the numbers in the flash sync were changed to red to indicate the new version. On the Red Dial version, the camera included better, more reliable shutter and had an faster flash sync speed of 1/50 of a second vs 1/30 of a second on the Black Dial versions. It was further upgraded with the addition of a self-timer in 1954, self timer. This particular unit is one of the latest 1954 red-dial, self-timer version.

This fully mechanical body is a great compact option to get into the Leica world !
