Yes! It's Leica, and yes, it is point and shoot camera.
The LEICA MIni Zoom is an exceptionally elegant, handy, fully automatic 35mm-format camera.
The Leica Mini Zoom is a 35mm compact point-and-shoot camera produced in the mid 1990s. It features a Vario Elmar 35 - 70mm f/4.0 - 7.6 zoom lens and several basic, common "program modes" including bulb, infinity focus, exposure override, and the like. It is small enough to be stowed away in just about any pocket and thanks to its minimal weight it`s a pleasure to have around all the time.
