Célula de medición - para luz disponible (medición de la luz ambiental) Photodiodo de Silicio con objetivo de condensación, situada en el centro de la parte inferior de la base de la cámara
Intervalo de Sensibilidad - ISO 80/19° a ISO 2500/35°, seleccionable en incrementos de 1/3 ISO, modo A de prioridad a la apertura y elección manual de la velocidad, control automático opcional en modo Snapshot (seleccionable en el menú).
Exposure modes
  • Optional automatic determination of shutter speeds with preselected apertures
  • Aperture priority automatic mode A
  • – with corresponding digital display, or manual selection of shutter speed and aperture and balance by means of an LED light balance with correct exposure display, or over exposure / camera shake trend prevention (snapshot mode only).
Flash
Conexión de Flash - Zapata con contactos central y de control.
Sincronización - Opcional, en la primera o segunda cortinilla del obturador
Flash synchronization speed - 1/180 s; longer shutter speeds may be used.
Flash metering - (With SCA-3501/3502 adapter or SCA-3000-standard flash unit, e.g. LEICA SF 24D / LEICA SF-58 Flash exposure control with center-weighted TTL pre-flash metering.
Flash metering cell - 2 silicon photodiodes with condenser lens in camera base.
Flash exposure correction - ±3 1/3 EV in 1/3 EV increments, adjustable on SCA-3501/3502 adapter.
Settings in computer mode for LEICA SF 24D, ±3 EV in 1/3 EV increments, or from 0 to –3 EV in 1 EV increments / adjustable in all modes for LEICA SF 58, ±3 EV in 1/3 EV increments.
Displays in flash mode - Flash ready: constant illumination of flash symbol LED in the viewfinder, flash confirmation: Constant illumination or rapid flashing of the LED after exposure, underexposure indicated by temporarily extinguished LED.

VISOR
Viewfinder principle - Large size, bright, combined bright-line viewfinder / rangefinder with automatic parallax compensation.
Eyepiece Adjusted to -0.5 diopters Correction lenses for –3 to +3 diopter available.
Image field framing - By projection of two bright-line frame with each lens attached: for 35 and 135 mm, or for 28 and 90 mm, or 50 and 75 mm. Automatically displayed when lens mount locks. Any of the pairs of bright-line frames can be displayed by moving the frame selection lever.
Parallax compensation - The horizontal and vertical differences between the viewfinder and the lens are automatically compensated in accordance with the focusing distance set, i.e. the bright-line frame of the viewfinder automatically moves to cover the image field covered by the respective lens.
Correspondence between the viewfinder and the actual image - At a focusing distance of 1 meter, the bright-line frame size corresponds precisely to that of a sensor of 23.9 × 35.8 mm. Focused at infinity, and depending on the focal length, approx. 7.3% (28 mm) to 18 % (135 mm) more of the sensor is covered than the bright-line frame actually shows, the opposite is the case for focusing distances less than 1 meter, i.e. somewhat less.
Viewfinder magnification(for all lenses) 0.68×
Long-base rangefinder - Bright rectangular spot (RF spot) with coincident and superimposed rangefinder in the center of the viewfinder. Effective rangefinder base 47.1 mm (actual base length 69.25 mm × viewfinder magnification 0.68×).
Viewfinder displays - (Lower edge) LED symbol for flash status. Four-digit, seven-segment digital LED display with dots above and below, display brightness adjusted for ambient light, for exposure correction warnings, display of automatically determined shutter speed in aperture priority automatic mode, exposure value lock indicator, out of metering range warning in aperture priority automatic mode and countdown display for shutter speeds longer than 2 s. LED light balance with two triangular and one round, central LED in manual exposure mode. The triangular LEDs show the required directions for turning the aperture ring or the shutter speed dial to correct the exposure setting. They also warn of light levels that are above or below the metering range.
Displays on the back - 2.5" monitor (color TFT-LCD) with 230,000 pixels

Obturador
Shutter - Microprocessor-controlled, particularly low-noise, metal-leaf, vertical focal-plane shutter.
Shutter speeds - In aperture priority automatic mode (A) continuous from 32 s to 1/4000 s. in manual mode, 8 s to 1/4000 s in half increments, B for arbitrary long exposure times (in conjunction with delayed release T function, i.e. 1st release = shutter opens, 2nd release = shutter closes, (1/180 s) fastest shutter speed for flash synchronization. Shutter cocking With integrated motor, with low-noise footprint, optionally only after release of shutter release button.
Continuous shooting - Approx. 2 frames/s, e 8 frames in sequence.
Shutter release - Three steps: activation of metering – store metering values (in aperture priority automatic mode) – shutter release. Standard internal threading for remote release.
Delayed release - Countdown 2 s (in aperture priority automatic mode and manual exposure mode) or 12 s, menu setting option, countdown is indicated by a flashing LED on the front of the camera and a corresponding display on the monitor screen.

Camera power on / power off - Main switch located on the top deck, optional sleep mode for camera electronics after 2 / 5 / 10 minutes, reactivation by slight pressure to shutter release button.
Power supply - 1 rechargeable lithium-ion battery, nominal voltage 3.7 V, capacity 1900 mAh. Charge level displayed on monitor screen, when shutter locked in open position (for sensor cleaning), additional acoustic warning signal for insufficient charge.

Descripción

La M9 © Disefoto

Después de la presentación de la Leica M8, Leica empezó un nuevo proyecto con nombre de código ‘864’ el área del negativo Leica 24 x 36 mm en milímetros cuadrados) con el objetivo de dotar al cuerpo de la Leica M8 con un sensor mayor que tuviese el tamaño exacto del las negativos de película de 35 mm. La demanda de ese sensor era enorme, y también había que buscar una solución práctica al exceso de sensibilidad a Infra-rojos que había causado problemas en el lanzamiento de la M8. La solución se encontró gracias a un sensor CCD de Kodak con micro-lentes especialmente diseñadas y un filtro IR algo más grueso (0.8 mm en vez de 0.5 mm). No hay tampoco filtro de paso bajo y se pueden observar efectos de moiré en estructuras finas y regulares.

La M9 fue presentada el 9.09.2009, otra elección de fechas con plena intención. Con la excepción del sensor más grande y los marcos del visor que están calibrados para 1 metro (en la M8 era 0.7 metros; en la M8.2, 2 metros), funciona como la M8 o la M8.2 y por extensión como cualquier camára clásica Leica de montura M. Hay algunos cambios en la etructura del menu en el monitor para una operación mas sencilla. Son visiblesa lgunos intentos inocentes de reducción de costes, al eliminar el pequeño indicador de la tapa superior. The M9-Titan shows that the innovation options for this type of rangefinder are restricted in scope: this limited edition version, designed by Walter de ‘Silva, chief designer of Volkswagen/Audi, was presented at Photokina 2010 and had some intriguing elements like the LED illuminated frame lines, but the advantages from a functional point of view are not great.

In 2011 the M9-P was added to the range with some extra features like the sapphire monitor cover and a logo-less top cover. In the black paint finish the camera looks extremely classical and elegant. There will be a change in body cover material when the “Vulcanite” material is no longer available. After extensive quality control tests, Leica has selected this particular leatherette cover for the black Leica M9 and the black and silver Leica M9-P. The new leatherette cover is slightly softer with a flatter surface embossing and a more matte finish. The change will be implemented during normal production. The M9 and in particular the M9-P have a design that closely follows the rules of the great German designer of the Braun company, Dieter Rams who said that ‘good design is as less design as possible’ and ‘good design makes a product understandable’. If Leica could follow these rules very faithfully, the M9-P might even become the most elegant Leica M ever.
