The world was anticipating patiently for the September 9th 2009 launch event when new products were to be announced by Leica. Well at least the photography inclined were waiting and after many leaks of information we got what we had been waiting for, the M9 and X1 digital camera as an official release.
The M9 is the new top of the range digital camera made in Germany and it is the first digital camera of its size to be built with a full frame sensor that is capable of perfectly capturing the full 35mm format (24 x 36mm) in ultra high resolution. Traditional design that reflect the heritage of the M series make this camera a perfect tool for serious photographers.
Whilst the X1 is a compact camera which a capability of high quality SLRs. Small yet powerful and it delivers the great picture quality that Leica is known for without compromising on size. Also made in Germany with over 100 years engineering experience and tradition, it will be a good partner for spontaneous photography.
