LEICA M9 TITANIUM
Leica’s M9 is the company’s latest addition to the M series that is a Full-Frame digital rangefinder camera with a 24 x 36mm sensor. It combines Leica’s M System with cutting-edge digital technology. The M9 features a silent, metal-leaf, focal-plane shutter that enables shutter speeds of up to 1/4000 seconds and an ISO range of 80-2500. The Leica M9 Titanium edition was recently unveiled at this year’s Photokina 2010. Designed by Volkswagen Group’s Walter de’Silva, the following is a video with an un-boxing of the camera which costs just as much as some Volkswagen models. The body is cast of a solid piece titanium with leather trims derived from Audi’s own leather. The camera is limited to only 500 pieces worldwide with more information seen here.
OK basically in plain english, LEICA IS THE ROLLS ROYCE PHANTOM OF CAMERAS!
