The Leica special edition Oskar Barnack Edition Set is an exclusive jubilee set to mark the 125th birthday of Oskar Barnack (1879-1936), the designer of the first 35mm Leica camera. In homage to the inventor of the 35mm system, the set comprises the true-to-detail new edition of a historic camera type, the LEICA 0 series 'Prototype 2', which Oskar Barnack developed as a second camera after the 'Ur Leica' and tested in practice.

The jubilee set also contains a DVD of previously unpublished film made by Oskar Barnack with his self-designed 35 mm cine camera in Wetzlar and the surrounding area. This makes the OSKAR BARNACK EDITION, a limited edition of only 1000, an ideal collectors' item for photo enthusiasts, besides providing those interested in the early days of film history with fascinating insights into the origins of the documentary film.
