Different Ducati

Not many people associate Ducati with cameras and optical equipment, but that’s where they started out.

I have a lovely 1951 Ducati Sogno, crafted and largely copied from a Leica but half the size.

They phased them out in 1953-ish and moved into two wheels.


The camera quality is superb, and you can hold the engineering in the palm of your hand!

Although they are now very rare.
