Leica M9 DigiCam Assembly Caught on Video, Clearly Not Using an M9 to Shoot

by Shane McGlaun

I really like the looks of the Leica M9 digital camera, but I would never spend that kind of loot on a camera or any sorts. I just not that into taking photos. I typically forget my camera and even when I do have it I want to pay attention to what’s going on more than I want to pay attention to photo ops. With the M9, going for about $7,000 this pair of videos is as close as I will get to owning the camera.

Some geeks went on a factory tour at the Leica works and watched an M9 get build from the ground up to the finished product. The extensive hand-building process is pretty cool and spans about 17 minutes. If you have always wondered what goes into the construction of a camera that costs that much, now is your chance to see.

The videos are broken into two parts and you can watch them both here:

I fully expected a camera that costs that much to be assembled by topless supermodels or something, but they just built in a plain clean room by people wearing hair nets.
