LEICA M9 ‘Titanium’ designed by Walter de’Silva

by JamesNYCSeptember 21. 2010 07:27

In collaboration with the chief designer of the Volkswagen Group, Leica Camera AG presents a unique special edition
Solms, Germany (September 21, 2010) - Leica Camera AG presents a new camera edition: The LEICA M9 ‘Titanium,’ debuting at Photokina on September 21. This exclusive special edition is the result of a collaboration with Walter de’Silva, the prominent automobile designer. Responsible for groundbreaking design concepts in the latest models from the Volkswagen Group, the chief designer and his Audi Design Team reinterpreted the design of the LEICA M9 just as he envisaged it. The outcome is a unique camera with a new rendering of the characteristic features of Leica rangefinder cameras, which lends precision engineering, unique style and solid titanium to extraordinary formal design.

The LEICA M9 ‘Titanium’ is an especially desirable object for both Leica connoisseurs and aficionados of outstanding design. The LEICA M9 ‘Titanium’ is constructed exclusively with premium quality materials. All visible metal elements of the camera body are made from solid titanium, a particularly light but extremely strong and durable metal that can only be manufactured with special tools. This special edition is strictly limited to only 500 cameras worldwide and is offered as a set together with a LEICA SUMMILUX-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH. lens, whose exterior metal components are also manufactured from solid titanium.
Walter de’Silva has given the Leica M camera an ergonomic, precise, logical and stringent look and feel without changing the intrinsic character of the rangefinder camera. Thus, the compact construction and technical features of the LEICA M9 ‘Titanium’ retain the distinctive style of a true Leica M camera.

Leica - BERLINSPIRATION

by JamesNYCSeptember 17. 2010 07:50

Solms, Germany (September 17, 2010) - On September 14, 2010, Leica Camera AG began a virtual paper chase through Berlin – ‘Berlinspiration’. For seven consecutive days, the German camera manufacturer will post pictures of the capital city on its Facebook page, and invites fans of photography from around the world to take part in the puzzle by guessing the locations of the photos and getting to know Berlin from an entirely new perspective.

 

The contest prize is a brand-new Leica camera that will be launched at this year’s Photokina, the leading trade show for the world of photography, held September 21-26, 2010 in Cologne, Germany. Additionally, posters showing the winner will be posted on billboards around the city. Berlinspiration finishes on September 21 and the winner will be announced on September 22 at 3 p.m. at Photokina.

 

Berlinspiration is not the place to go looking for touristy pictures of the city’s sights: the photos are unusual and humorous insights into the life of the metropolis. To guide you, Leica has hidden away on the web a choice of five different answers and digital clues. True ‘Berlinsiders’ may have the competitive edge – but a bit of research on the Web offers people around the world a great chance of finding all the right answers too.

 

A trailer posted on Vimeo also publicizes Berlinspiration on the Web – click here to view it: http://vimeo.com/leicacamera . If you want to take part in Berlinspiration, all you have to do is click here: http://www.facebook.com/LeicaCamera
