3. Life and work of Leica Camera
Stochl has been taking photographs since he was 17 years old. In the late 1960s he was inspired by the photographs of Henri Cartier-Bresson. He bought a Leica camera and started taking pictures, his only formal education in photography being a course in high school. Later he was inspired by the work of Robert Frank.
Stochl spent 40 years photographing people on the streets of Chicago without showing them to anyone. In October 2003 he had a solo exhibition at a small Chicago gallery "that went mostly unnoticed." In the Spring of 2004, he went to the Photography Department at Columbia College Chicago and met Bob Thall, the Chair of the Photography Department. Thall was told by his secretary that someone wanted to show him some pictures. He reluctantly agreed and tried to get the meeting over with as soon as possible, but after seeing some of Stochl's photographs he realized that this was a photographer of unusual merit. Thall later helped Stochl to publish his photographs in the book On City Streets: Chicago 1964-2004.
He has used the same camera, a Leica M3, since 1968.
4. Description of Leica Camera
The macroscope outwardly resembles a binocular microscope (stereo microscope) but has a single light path in place of the dual light paths of the latter, which is relayed as an identical image to both eyepieces, and optionally, a camera port. In the Wild era it was offered as the M400, M410, M420 and M450 instruments,, subsequently sold as the Leica M420 only. Optimised for macro photography in particular (since the camera path passed through the centre of the imaging lens, thereby offering the best optical performance), the instrument was not intended for mass sale but for specialised technical use, such as in universities and research laboratories, for example for production of images for use in scientific publications, or for inspection and production control for microscopic circuits, etc., in the semiconductor industry. In addition to their generally good optical performance, macroscopes offered a large, fixed working distance independent of magnification setting between the bottom of the objective lens and the subject, which was advantageous for manipulation of the specimens and/or introduction of supplementary lighting, etc. A further benefit of the macroscope principle (in contrast to the stereo microscope) is there is no parallax error (apparent lateral shift of the
specimen) when acquiring "z-stacks" or focus stacked images for subsequent merging.
5. Ball head of Leica Camera
A ball head is a metal or plastic apparatus placed on top of a tripod that increases stability and provides faster, more accurate rotation of the camera for the photographer. They are lighter than traditional three-way pan-tilt tripod heads. With fewer parts and a much simpler mechanism, ball heads are usually preferred by more advanced photographers. They are usually quite expensive most professional-quality heads are more than US$200, although some heads are available for less than $100
6. Model features and history of Leica Camera
The Wild M400 and M450 were introduced in 1976, the M450 being essentially an M400 without the dedicated photo tube (thus intended for observation only). The M400 was sold with a dedicated range of camera bodies controlled by a large electronics box separate from the microscope, with some of the camera elements (the exposure sensor and the shutter) incorporated into the microscope body, and was an expensive model to both make and purchase. Both it and the later M420 incorporated a manual aperture control (to control depth-of-field) and it was available with a "Macrozoom" objective with a magnification range of 6.
3x to 32x, i.
, an approximate zoom ratio of 1:5. Supplementary lenses were available which modified the objective magnification by 0.5x, 1.5x or 2x. There also was a version of the M450 marketed as the EpiMakroScop, which had the "Epizoom" objective, essentially a Macrozoom with a permanently attached 2x front element, thus twice the magnification but only half of the potential field-of-view of its "standard" equivalent. The (later) M420 was a cheaper option than the M400, lacking the electronic controls and in-microscope photography-associated features, but allowing the user to mount a camera of their choice on the top; the M410 was its sister model, designed for observation only (no photo tube). After the M420 production was taken over by Leica, initial models were offered with the same Macrozoom objective, and later ones with a new "Apozoom" objective possessing a zoom range between 5.8x and 35x (1:6), designed to provide higher resolution and better colour correction. Final magnification in the image plane was calculated incorporating a 1.
25x magnification in both the viewing and photo tubes, leading to (for example) a range of 7.875x to 40x for the Macrozoom-equipped system (quoted range using the 10x eyepieces), further variable via a choice of different eyepiece magnifications and/or the additional supplementary lenses that could be mounted on the objective
7. Life of Leica Camera
Zellner was born on December 20, 1977 in Eckernfrde, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.
From October 2002 to February 2010, he studied camera in the cinema and television film department at the University of Television and Film Munich. He has been a lecturer there since 2009.

11. Gary Stochl of Leica Camera
Gary Stochl (born 1947) is a street photographer who lives in Stickney, Illinois, just outside Chicago. His work is held in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and published in the book On City Streets: Chicago 1964-2004. Stochl made photographs for 40 years before showing them to anyone.
12. Successors of Leica Camera
The original "macroscope" line was formally dropped in around 2003, in favour of a redesigned product range, the Leica Z6 APO (6.3x zoom range) and Z16 APO (16x zoom range), which followed similar principles but no longer incorporated "macroscope" in their model names. A fluorescence-equipped version of these instruments was also marketed as the Leica MacroFluo.
13. Macroscope (Wild-Leica) of Leica Camera
A macroscope is a type of optical microscope developed and named by Swiss microscope manufacturers Wild Heerbrugg and later, after that company's merger with Leica in 1987, by Leica Microsystems of Germany, optimised for high quality macro photography and/or viewing using a single objective lens and light path, rather than stereoscopic viewing of specimens, at magnifications up to around x40 (which can be increased further with optional supplementary lenses or higher power eyepieces)
