11 Reasons For

Leica Cameras Have Good Reviews

MILC digital cameras produced by Leica have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all cameras (not just MILC digital cameras) and found that Leica also has good ratings across its entire range.

CCD Sensor Type

The Leica M9-P has a CCD sensor type which is better than the MOS sensor type found on most MILC digital cameras that were released more than two years ago. 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 amongst all MILC digital cameras that are a similar age to the M9-P.

Amongst comparable types of digital camera the worst sensor type is MOS.

There are a number of other cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available which you might also want to look at including the Olympus SP-810UZ, or the Leica M Monochrom (£5,798.00) which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Flash

has a built-in flash

The Leica M9-P has a built-in flash. Most of the other MILC digital cameras that were released around the same time as the M9-P also have a built-in flash.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative cameras with a built-in flash currently available including the 1 V2, or the 1 J4 both from Nikon which has better reviews.

SD Compatible Memory Cards

This camera supports an SD|SDHC compatible memory cards, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory cards on MILC digital cameras that have been around for around the same time as it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

If the memory card type of this Leica camera is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the Olympus E-P5 + M.ZUIKO ED 14‑42mm + CSS-S110 LS (£398.97) (Eye-Fi|SD|SDHC|SDXC) which is also higher rated.

Quite Big Battery Capacity

MILC digital cameras that have been available for a comparable time to the M9-P have battery capacitys of between 680mAh and 4,400mAh. When compared to other cameras that were released more than two years ago, the battery capacity of the Leica M9-P of 1,900 milliampere * hour is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Has One White Balance

The number of white balance modes found on the Leica M9-P is more than most comparable spec cameras that have been around for more than two years. This Leica digital camera has an Auto white balance, which is the most commonly found white balance found on MILC digital cameras that are a similar age to the M9-P.

Chart Edit

Features Two Auto Focusing (AF) Modess

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

Chart Edit

TFT Display

The Leica M9-P has a TFT display which is better than most cameras of this age and type. Most similar spec cameras that were released more than two years ago have an LCD display. 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. Across all cameras of a similar age and type to the M9-P the best display is AMOLED and the worst is LCD.

Chart Edit

Auto Focus Adjustment

This camera has an Auto / Manual focus adjustment, which is typical of many digital cameras of a comparable age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Supports Two Power Source Types

The number of power sources supported by the Leica M9-P is more than most digital cameras that were launched around the same time as it. This camera supports a Battery power source type, which is the most frequently supported power source type supported by MILC digital cameras that were launched around the same time as the M9-P. The power source type "USB" is also supported by this Leica camera.

Chart Edit

Quite Small ISO Sensitivity (min)

The average ISO sensitivity (min) of MILC digital cameras that came out around the same time as the M9-P is 130, and the ISO sensitivity (min)s range from 50 to 200. At only 80, the Leica M9-P has a quite small ISO sensitivity (min) compared to most of the other cameras of a similar age and type to the M9-P.
