Leica M9: Expanded Guide
With a price tag that places it in the realm of the aficionado who appreciates fine quality and stylish good looks, the Leica M9 is the world’s most compact full-format digital camera system, and carries the 100-year heritage of the original Ur-Leica film camera into the digital age. It’s the world’s first digital system camera of its size built with a full-frame CDD sensor that can capture the full 35-mm format (24×36 mm) in ultra-high resolution. Styled after the German manufacturer’s classic ‘M’ design in black vulcanite finish or steel grey with leatherette finish, the magnesium alloy housing measures 139x37x80 mm (5.5×1.5×3.1 in); its top deck and bottom plate are machined from brass.
