Leica M9 Rangefinder Digital Camera Body
- Product Details
Notes: Rental is for the camera body only. A lens is not included.
The Leica M9 is the world's first full-frame, 35mm digital rangefinder camera. Anybody that knows about the history of photography knows this camera. You can find these in museums while learning about the world's best photojournalists. The build is so strong that you can actually stand on this camera (don't actually do that to ours).
The M9 is rugged and discrete. The shutter is incredibly quiet and you can fit this camera in your back pocket. It has a discreet mode that recocks the shutter only after your finger comes off the shutter. The controls are intuitive and the aperture is controlled on the lens.
This camera features an 18 megapixel CCD sensor. The "M" stands for Messsucher which describes a combination of a viewfinder and rangefinder. The big bright viewfinder makes framing easy and precise even in dimly lit situations.
