He shows off his collection, which includes vintage Leicas for example the 1958 M2 and a 1930 Leitz 73mm lens. His arsenal also boasts newer models like the Leica M10-D and a Noctilux. The post’s caption seems to indicate that Momoa is working on a new project with the company, as he writes:
“Excited to start a new project and film. Shooting movies on the @reddigitalcinema @leitzcine and photos on @leicacamerausa #LeicaSummicronM.#M10.” He also makes references to how it is going to be “a great couple years filled with art,” hinting that the two may be in some sort of ongoing collaboration.
The collaboration comes after the Hollywood actor appeared in numerous social media posts by Leica over the course of 2018. In each, he was pictured shooting with one of their cameras. Interestingly, Momoa’s passion in photography may have inherited from his mother, who was a photographer.
