11 Reasons For

Leica Has Good Camera Reviews

On average Leica MILC digital cameras have good reviews as do all cameras manufactured by Leica.

CCD Sensor Type

The Leica M9-P has a CCD sensor type which is better than most comparable spec digital cameras that were released around the same time as it. Most digital cameras of a comparable spec and age to it have a MOS sensor type. CCD sensors produce high quality, low-noise images but consume a lot more power than CMOS sensors. CCD is the most common image sensor type used in digital cameras.

This digital camera's sensor type (CCD) is actually the best sensor type across all digital cameras of this type and age.

Across similar types of digital camera the worst sensor type is MOS.

There are a number of alternative cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available that you might also want to look at including cheaper digital cameras such as the Leica M-E[plb_2213814_price].

Has a Built-In Flash

The Leica M9-P has a built-in flash. Most of the other cameras of this type and age also have a built-in flash.

Chart Edit

SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an SD|SDHC memory card, which is the most frequently supported memory card on digital cameras of this age and type. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other cameras that support an SD|SDHC memory currently available including cheaper digital cameras such as the M-E[pl_2213814_price], or the M-E[pl_2213814_price] both from Leica.

Fairly Big Battery Capacity

Across all the similar spec cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the M9-P the battery capacities range from 680mAh to 4,400mAh. At 1,900 milliampere * hour, the Leica M9-P has a fairly big battery capacity compared to most of the other cameras of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Has One White Balance Mode

The number of white balance modes found on the Leica M9-P is more than most MILC digital cameras that were launched around the same time as it. This camera has an Auto white balance mode, which is the most commonly found white balance mode found on comparable spec cameras that were launched around the same time as the M9-P.

Chart Edit

Features Two Auto Focus

The Leica M9-P has a greater number of auto focusing (AF) modes than most MILC digital cameras that are a similar age to it. This Leica camera features a Continuous Auto Focus auto focus, which is the most frequently featured auto focus featured on MILC digital cameras that were launched around the same time as the M9-P. The auto focus "Single Auto Focus" is also featured on this camera.

Chart Edit

TFT Display

The Leica M9-P has a TFT display which is better than the LCD display found on most comparable spec digital cameras that have been on the market for a similar time to it. TFT LCDs provide better image quality and higher resolutions to earlier LCD displays but their limitations are narrow viewing angles and poor vislibility in direct sunlight. Digital cameras of a comparable type and age to the M9-P displays range from LCD (worst) to AMOLED (best).

Chart Edit

Supports Two Power Sources

The number of power sources supported by the Leica M9-P is more than most digital cameras of a comparable spec and age to it.
