What camera does eggleston use

Question was Answered by: Nikolas Harrison

Eggleston has owned a lot of cameras, he has more than 300 cameras at his house, it unbelievable isn’t?? Well it true.

He said that even though he owns a bunch of cameras he usually uses his Leica M-D (Typ 262) or Canon EOS-1DX Mark II and he called both these cameras his babies.

Leica M-D Typ 262 Features

  1. Leica M-D Typ 262 24MP Digital Rangefinder Compact Camera Body - 100-240V Charger - Car Charging Cable - Lithium-ion Battery - Carrying Strap - Cover for Accessory Shoe - Leica 2 Year Warranty
  2. Complete Concentration, Maximum clarity: The Leica M-D has everything a camera needs: manual settings for ISO values, apertures and shutter speeds. The essentials for uncompromising simplicity.
  3. Less Technology, More Creative Freedom: The Leica M-D offers the ultimate in digital rangefinder photography. No LCD screen leads to more freedom for creative photography.
  4. Typical M, Exceptional picture quality: As is the case with all M-Cameras, the Leica M-D delivers exceptional picture quality. It also remains true to its purist origins - by capturing exposures exclusively in DNG format.
  5. Unique - Purism also characterizes its design: By the omission of the Leica red dot logo, LCD monitor screen and menu controls, and a body finished completely in black, the Leica M-D is the epitome of understatement.

Eggleston is the most respected American photographer. I love his work very much, he is an inspiration to most American photographers including myself, Eggleston has influenced the world with his art, his just the best.

I used to Google about him every day when I was growing up just to see what was he up to, I was kind of obsessed with his work even still today. Now am 25 years old and proud to call myself a professional photographer, but it all started as a hobby.

Eggleston is my favorite photographer followed by Platon , what I love about Eggleston is that he is always going to surprise you with his work, his photos are amazing, I just love everything that he produces because it always going to amaze you.

I started photography 3 years ago and it what I do every day and I thank god every day for doing what I love since I was working as chef before and I used to hate my job so much that I was always angry when it was time to go to work and my boss was also treating us like shit.


Eggleston is the best photographer America has ever seen, I truly admire him, I was browsing around looking for a new camera to buy, and eggleston just came in to my mind then I searched for what camera was he using, well I have never owned a Leica before and I always promised myself to buy me one, I guess that day is today.

The Canon EOS-1DX Mark II and the Leica M-D Typ 262 cost almost the same but I personally think the Leica is way better than Canon. i honestly have a soft spot for canon cameras, I prefer Nikons and Leica’s… I guess the 1DX is worth it if a guy like Eggleston is using it for his professional work.


I have always wondered why top photographers love using Leica cameras, well today am going to buy one and see it for myself. I hope this camera is worth the 6 k am going to spend on it.
