Leica m9

leica m9

The last train has quietly taken away the Kodak CCD of the M9. Leica can’t keep it. Leica has entered the CMOS world. After all, you have to bid farewell to your youth. Goodbye youth, goodbye CCD.

In 2009, Leica released the m9

Many people dream of having a Leica. The world’s first full-frame rangefinder digital camera, holding such a camera, shuttled the street like Bresson.
Many people know the Leica brand because of the Leica m9. For a long time, it was the most expensive 135 full-frame digital camera.

Many people have tried various settings in Photoshop to make their photos look like Leica m9 colors.

M8 and M9

aps-h and full-frame are the difference in film size, but M8 and M9 belong to the same type in terms of handling. Once you get used to the control of m8 and m9, it will be a bit awkward to control over m240 and m10. You need to get used to the setting menu. The M8 and M9 have fewer menus and appear simpler.

The m8 uses infrared pass filters to take infrared photos. The black and white shots taken by the m8 are very characteristic. The color of m9 is close to color film. Film is good, digital is tasteless. It is said that the color of Leica m9 is close to that of film, which is actually the biggest praise for m9.

Thanks to Kodak ’s costly CCD, the photos of Leica m9 have a special texture. Many people switch from ccd to cmos, and later they will miss the color of ccd. The color of m9 can always give you some unexpected surprises. Isn’t this the characteristic of film?

Why is the ccd of the Leica M9 so special?

Isn’t ccd more technologically advanced than cmos? I can’t find a convincing explanation. Neither the scientific principles nor the samples can objectively prove anything. I can only find the answer from the question itself. Why is everyone talking about “CCD is better than CMOS” instead of “CMOS is better than CCD”. The question itself seems to give the answer.

CCD demoulding-digital acne

Leica m9’s ccd made a bold attempt, even a little radical, in order to pursue picture quality, removed the low-pass filter, which was unprecedented in the year. The CCD surface uses an unstable coating, which causes many m9, m9p, me, and mm to peel off, or ccd corrosion. Unfortunately, since it is youth, it is hard to escape acne.

After m9, Leica finally realized how reckless it is to use CCD, just like the ignorant youth, accompanied by the face of acne. After a few years, the m9’s ccd started to have problems, and the smooth ccd had acne on it. Only CMOS sensors can be used to solve this problem.

Does every M9 ccd corrode?

According to my investigation, not every M9’s ccd will be corroded. The CCDs of m9 and m9p of a few friends I know have not been corroded. The ccd of my m9 was corroded, so I had to change the CCD. It took 5 months and cost 8,000 RMB in China. Well, my m9 can be used for another 10 years. It should be no problem.
