Beware to be smitten and tempted.

The iconic Leica brand has opened a new touchpoint to reach out to fans and consumers – now in The Gardens Mall, Kuala Lumpur. The new outlet is owned and operated by Keat Camera, who also run the Starhill Gallery outlet.

Keat Camera has its photography and camera roots dating back to 1980 when ardent photography fan Tan Chor Kiak aka Ah Keat started repairing Leica cameras as a mainstay.

Tan’s son, Raymond has taken over the helm and continues to impart knowledge and share the unique Leica experience with fans and enthusiasts alike.

Tan has the expert assistance of Woo Kien Ping, also better known as Leicawoo in the local photography scene. With imaging experience of over 40 years, the veteran is regarded as an expert in Leica cameras and sports optics.

This year is a special year for the iconic camera brand – it’s not only celebrating “100 years of Leica photography” but also “going back to its roots” so to speak. It moved its factory back to Wetzlar at Leitz-Park in May, the birthplace of the Leica camera and the home of Ernst Leitz – the company that became Leica Camera AG.
