In fact, while the video concentrates on the Hermès collaboration, it helps explain why every other Leica camera is so expensive, too. There’s gentle care lavished on each and every component as the devices are put together, and the whole process feels so damn human. This isn’t mass production, it’s craftsmanship. Whether it’s enough to justify the purchase of a Leica though, well, that’s an entirely different question. [Leica via The Verge]
