Building a Digital Camera: Leica M9 Assembly Video

Building a Digital Camera: Leica M9 Assembly Video

Ever wondered what’s inside that tightly sealed digital camera of yours? Or have you ever taken this curiosity a step further and wondered how your digital camera was made?  If the answer to both of these is a resounding no and you’re happy just taking photos and not building cameras, then this probably isn’t the video for you.  If on the other hand you’re getting a bit curious then this video from the Leica factory should be right up your street.

Leica M9 Rangefinder

First off I’ll come clean and put it out there that this isn’t how your typical digital camera is produced.  This is the production process for the extremely high-end (and extremely expensive!) Leica M9 rangefinder camera.

The Leica brand is synonymous with elegance and quality in photography circles, though whether their excellent cameras and lenses live up to their enormous price tags is a topic of hot debate!

We won’t enter that debate now, but if after watching one being assembled below you decide that you must have a Leica M9 then you can pick one up on Amazon for a whisper over £5k. Bargain?
