This is an update to my previous post on my expectations and rumors for the Leica announcement in Berlin next week. Leica M9-M Monochrome rangefinder: All black camera body with no red dot or any other markings on the front, there will only be a Leica Mon
All black camera body with no red dot or any other markings on the front, there will only be a Leica Monochrome engraving on the top plate (similar to the M9-P). The M9-M will basically be a M9-P but with a monochrome sensor.
I shoot film with Leica M 35mm cameras. Until I find a camera that works as well, unobtrusively, and that captures images with a resolution greater than what can be made with a high resolution drum scanner from a film source, I will continue to shoot film. In my mind, the chemical reaction of light being locked into film, a four-dimensional moment in spacetime becoming a two-dimensional piece of acetate, makes my camera a hand-held time machine in many ways. In this digital age, you never know whether an image you see is an accurate and true representation of reality. But I can show you the original transparency of any image on this website, and I guarantee that it is as I saw it and how it is represented here.
