Join Leica Camera at the Hyatt Palm Springs (PSPF’s Headquarters) where you can get ‘hands on’ experience with Leica’s different photographic systems – SL-System, S-System, M-System, T-Camera System and compact cameras.

A Vision of the Future

The Leica SL-System marks the beginning of a new era of professional photography. As the first mirrorless system camera of its kind, it offers an impressive range of innovative features and sets entirely new standards with regard to versatility and handling – and rugged resilience.
