When you first see the $25,000 or $50,000 price tag for the two new Leica x Hermès limited edition cameras, understandably you'll want to do a bit more research into your purchase. Obviously, Leica has nothing to hide; their design work and craftsmanship is widely respected and their video following the creation of one of their Leica M9-P Edition Hermès cameras is amazing to watch. Seeing the smooth cuts into the calfskin leather, the intricate beading work, and seeing the handcrafted bag come together is truly a one-of-a-kind behind the scenes opportunity. And because some will find it hard to wait until their July release date, Leica paired their video release with one showing the unboxing of the complete kit, which includes a detailed look at the camera, its optics, Dumas' photography book, and a look at the custom-built bag. Click after the jump to watch them both.
