Leica R9 35mm SLR Manual Focus Camera Body - Anthracite (Charcoal Black)

B&H # LER9A Mfr # 10090
No Longer Available

While based on the R8, the Leica R9 has been redesigned in such a way that it makes good sense for a photographer: it is not overloaded with technical features but carries everything that a photographer needs to control his/her results. The camera can be operated instinctively without moving your eyes from the viewfinder, where you have all important information permanently at sight. All important information is now displayed directly in the viewfinder. Combined with any one of the over 30 high-quality lenses made by Leica, this camera will result in excellent quality images.

User Friendly
Ergonomic design and maximum operating convenience.
Bright Viewfinder
High-eyepoint viewfinder (with integral dioptric correction) is the brightest, contrastiest of all 35mm SLRs
Fast Shutter Speeds
Shutter speeds from 32 seconds to 1/8000th
HSS Flash
In combination with an HSS (High Speed Synchronization) compatible flash unit (e.g. Metz 54MZ-3 w/ SCA 3502 adapter), it allows flash exposures with shutter speeds as high as 1/8000's! This enables you to make pleasing portraits even in daylight and at full aperture, without harsh contrasts.
Very Precise Exposure Compensation
Adjust the exposure with as little as 1/10th of an f/stop.
