Leica M11-P

Pioneering Photography. Once Again.
Material number
Leica cameras have always stood witness to iconic moments in world history. However, determining the authenticity of visual content has become increasingly difficult and important in the age of digital photography. Now with the ability to provide this proof, we are once again strengthening trust in digital content and re-establishing Leica cameras as authoritative tools in the documentation of world events.

The world’s first camera with Content Credentials

Expanding the frontiers of authentic storytelling. The Leica M11-P is the first camera to seamlessly integrate content authentication according to the Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI) and the C2PA standard.

A ground-breaking opportunity to verify moments in time, taking responsibility for the provenance of a moment – ensuring that every photo you take stands as a hallmark of credibility, integrity, and innovation in the ever-evolving world of photography.


M is…

A witness to history, graced by the hands of legends. A one-of-a-kind Rangefinder Camera System. Fascinating photographers and enthusiasts since 1954 with its Design, Made in Germany Quality and the legendary Leica Brand. From the first camera until today. Because an M is an M and remains an M. 

"For almost 100 years, a Leica has been the go-to camera for photojournalists documenting some of the most pivotal moments in history, from the rise of totalitarianism in the 1930s, through World War II and Vietnam, to Black Lives Matter and climate change in the present day. 
VII is a name synonymous with courageous, and impactful photojournalism and for decades its photographers have sought to shape public understanding through an informed and honest interpretation of the events to which they bore witness. Their journalism is free of artifice and manipulation. 

In our digital age, the challenge is discerning authentic imagery from manipulated content. While advancements in AI and generative imagery have value in the creative arts, their potential misuse in the realm of journalism clouds the trustworthiness of visual media. It is essential, now more than ever, to ensure that the public can trust the authenticity of the images they consume. 
Empowering the public with tools to distinguish between genuine and altered content is paramount. With this in mind, VII is thrilled to deepen its alliance with Leica, through the Content Authenticity Initiative. 

The integration of the Content Authenticity Initiative technology into the M11-P represents a revolutionary stride in ensuring image authenticity, highlighting our shared commitment to trust and transparency in the visual expression of our human experience."
