Nicht Mehr Kodachrome

Came across this clip that has been dubbed over (sorry for the spoiler) from one of my favourite movies, Der Untergung. There have been many dub overs of this scene, but I quite like this one.

The soon to be released M9

Leica is holding a worldwide launch on the 09/09/09 for their ‘next generation’ of products. The M9 will likely be the star of the show, and yesterday the latest official Leica M brochure was release. It feature the MP, the M7, and the M9 and there is no mention of the M8.2.

I was hoping that the LCD would go, but at least it's small!

The M9 will feature an 18.5 megapixel full frame (23.9×35.8mm) sensor which will capture true 16 bit DNG raw files (a first for small format digital cameras). It will be availble in a steel grey paint or a black paint finish. No word on pricing as yet, but we will know in a few days time.

I’ve just pulled the trigger on a chrome MP, and also found a mint condition Wetzlar made M6, so the M9 will have to wait.
