The First World War stopped the commercial introduction of this 35mm camera. It wasn't until 1925 that the first Leica cameras were made commercially available, but they were still among the first still cameras available for 35mm movie film. Despite of contemporary successful early 35mm camera models like De Vry's K-1, Wirgin's Edinex and Ernemann's Unette the early Leicas became the most influential 35mm cameras. Many other camera makers started their 35mm camera business by simply copying original Leica models, often disregarding any legislation against product piracy. Some renowned companies learned to make sophisticated camera mechanics that way, and switched later to the production of own 35mm camera constructions.
