Unboxing the $30,000 Leica M9 Titanium

With a suggested retail price of £19,800 (currently about $32,000) and only 500 units in existence, Leica’s limited edition M9 Titanium probably isn’t a camera you’re ever going to lay eyes on in real life. When it was announced back in September of last year, we predicted that most of them wouldn’t see the light of day and would be placed immediately into collectors’ vaults. Luckily for us, someone decided to actually unbox (gasp!) one of these babies (camera #164), allowing us to see what it’s like to receive such an absurdly expensive camera.

Update: Here’s another video that gives a closer look at the camera itself:

    if you’re going to buy a leica, buy an M8. why a digital? its a waste of the true resolution the lenses are capable of.

    Are Leica camera’s better than a Sony Cybershot???

    Why would you buy a camera and put it in a vault? Why would you build a camera when you know your customers wll put it in a vault?

    Sony only recently started selling their own SD cards. Its probably 32GB not MB :P
